Become A Happy And Healthy Mom With Mamaearth Stress Relief Tea & Feel Better Tea.

May you be a mom, or a college girl or a working lady, every woman struggles with stress or anxiety for most of her adult life. As a working mom, I am also dealing with stress regularly. But, I never rely on any medication. Rather, I feel refreshed with yoga, listening to good music, family life and a huge stash of warm tea. But, if you can keep the hand on a tea that has herbs and ingredients meant to calm and relax your senses, don’t you think that’ll be great? Yes, I’m talking about Traditional Recipes Stress Relief Tea and Feel Better Tea from the brand Mama Earth. 





Mama Earth has recently launched new products under the name of Traditional Recipes to bring the traditional recipes into the well being of moms or to-be moms. From these new launches, they have sent me two varieties, Stress Relief Tea and Feel Beter Tea. Now, let me share my experiences about these two.


Stress Relief Tea:

Parental stress is the second most important factor in child’s well-being and so, Stress Relief Tea is here to help them relieve some of that stress. The tea is made of Herbs like Sarsaparilla Root and Cinnamon Bark which have been known for their soothing and calming effect for centuries.





The Herbs in Stress Relief Tea:

1. Indian Sarsaparilla Root: With its Saponins, Sterols, and antioxidants, Sarsaparilla Root has been known to ease mental and physical fatigue and improve immunity. It also cleans blood and removes toxins from the body.

2. Cinnamon Bark Ext: Cinnamon bark relieves stress, boosts immunity and protects from heart diseases. It is also known to eliminate the risk of cancer.

3. Ginger Root: Ginger contains a potent antioxidant, Gingerol, which helps eliminate the harmful chemicals our body produces when we are worried, hence reducing stress.

4. Eucalyptus Leaf: Eucalyptus is great for relieving stress, increasing energy and relieving muscle and joint pain. It reduces inflammation in the blood vessels and arteries, thereby protecting you from heart attacks and strokes.




Directions For Use:

To get maximum benefits out of these teas always prepare them properly. Pour 200ml freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a ceramic cup, cover it while it steeps and let it stay for 10-15 minutes. All these steps greatly influence the yield of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup. Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining ext. Drink two cups daily between meals.


Price: INR 599 for a pack of 30 bags.



The tea bags come in a tin container on which all the info about the tea, brand name and the name of the product is printed.









My Experience:

I take this tea twice as directed by the brand. As a teacher, taking regular classes is a stressful job. So, I take at daytime between my classes. As I take higher classes, I have to talk much and that damages my throat. So after taking 2-3 classes, when I sip the tea, I get refreshed at once and it gives instant relief to my sore throat too. And the second cup, I take in the evening after coming back and then the tea boosts my energy level to do my household duties, especially helps me tackle my naughty younger son. I get a happy feel, each time I drink the tea. So, it can be said that Stress Relief tea does exactly what the brand claims.


Feel Better Tea:

Becoming a mom is no cakewalk, rather acidity and low immunity can make it more difficult. Feel Better tea protects her from all the infections while strengthening her immune system. It helps settle the stomach, aid in digestion and revive her for the day. A handcrafted blend of mint, ginger, chamomile and other soothing herbs, the tea calms the unwanted stomach issues while making her strong inside.




The Herbs In The Feel Better Tea:

1. Nettle Leaf: Nettle is a strong antioxidant that purifies blood and cures an upset stomach. It also helps in skin issues like acne, eczema etc.

2. Chamomile: It calms the nervous system, builds immunity and aids in digestion. It also helps in sleep better by relaxing your nervous system.

3. Mint: It boosts the immune system, esp, against a common cough and cold. The tea also helps in reducing menstrual cramps.

4. Ginger: It aids in digestion, reduces nausea, helps manage imbalances in the gut and builds immunity.




Directions For Use:

Pour 200 ml freshly boiled water over a tea bag in a ceramic cup, cover the cup, and let it stay for 10-15 minutes. Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining ext and drink daily between meals.

Price: INR 599 for 30 tea bags.



The tea bags come in a cardboard box with every info about the product including the name of the product and the brand.






My Experience:

I take this tea twice a day, sometimes thrice too. The sweet aroma in it is very refreshing and immediately boosts you up. It’s not bitter at all. As I drink the tea, it gives my senses an immediate boost and I feel relaxed. After having for regular 2 weeks, it has made my digestion system far better. Digestion is a great problem with me, for what I had to take medicines too. But for 1 week, I haven’t taken any medicine. Moreover, recently I made a trip to South India, where I didn’t have to take any antacid which I normally would take in my every trip. As the tea has improved my digestion, I have put off some weight too. And this result has made me really feel better.

Disclaimer: Herbal Tea should be avoided during the first trimester of pregnancy. Also avoid these if you have a known hypersensitive to Nettle Plant or any plant within Persely family like Fennel seed. This product was sent to me by the brand for honest review. This tea is not a significant source of vitamins and minerals. Under no circumstances exceed the prescribed dosage.


After reading, you might be thinking of trying them out. So, don’t think much and buy them now to be a beautiful and happy mom.

The Brand: Panigha India

Panigha India, is a Kolkata-based jewelry brand that operates from Facebook and Instagram. Panighaindia was born out of immense love for handicrafts some months ago, but during this short period, it’s become a name in the field of handicrafts. They sells jewelry, home decor, stoles,  dupatta, in a word they have anything to do with fashion and in very affordable prices. Another thing I love about the brand is their safe packaging and fast delivery. They have sent me a set of handmade jewelry and I have purchased one set of Afghan Jewelry. Both the sets were safely packed and reached my place within three days.



What I have Picked Up From Panigha India:

When I first time visit their page, what attracted me is their exclusive and variety of range. Each and every jewelry is unique and you will not see any second piece. They have sent me a set of neckpiece and earrings. But, honestly, seeing their collection, I couldn’t resist myself from buying one. So, let’s have a look what I have picked up from Panigha India.

My Styling With The Jewelry from Panigha India:

As, Diwali is round the corner, I think it will be the best to create a traditional look. And what can be the most gorgeous and sexy look, than the look you create with a saree? The Saree is considered to be a timeless outfit. It has never failed to surprise us with its variety of innovations that have been brought in it till date.


I have created two looks, one day look with a typical hand painted Bengal handloom saree and other with a night look with silk saree. Both the sarees I have bought from a local boutique.


Day Look:







I have also picked up a kurti for the day look.





The night look:

Special Skincare During Monsoon

After scorching hot summer days rains bring a sense of relief in us. But along with the relief, this season brings many infections that affect our skin and bring the problems like acne, blackheads, whiteheads etc.The humid weather during monsoon makes the oily and combination skin oilier because this time the skin makes sebaceous glands hyperactive that make the skin attract more dirt, bacteria from the air. So, at this time of the year skin needs special treatment otherwise the situation gets worse. Let’s scroll down to know how you’ll take care of your skin concerns.




How To Take Care:

Here I am not going to tell you to take any special expensive facial in a salon or to buy any expensive product to make a hole in your purse. Rather, I’ll share with you some simple home remedies with the natural ingredients those are easily available on our kitchen shelf.


Deep Cleansing:

Mix 1 tablespoon of curd (you can use milk too) with 1/2 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel and 2 drops of lavender oil (optional) to form a thick paste and apply all over your face and neck. Keep for at least 10 minutes and massage for 1 minutes and rinse. If you are vegan use soy milk or coconut milk instead of curd or milk and dates paste instead of honey.

This mask will give you radiant and nourished look, by healing your acne. It also soothes the irritated skin, hydrates it and keeps your skin fresh.





Boil 2 cups of water with a hand full of neem leaves or mint leaves and Holy basil leaves for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool down fully. Strain the water and refrigerate it. Use it after cleansing or whenever you feel like soothe your skin.

This toner will control the production of sebum and reduces excessive oiliness. It also soothes the inflammation and reduces redness preventing the acne from coming back.




Special Treatment For Acne, Blackheads, and Whiteheads:

Here, I am going to tell about some ingredients which are greatly known for their healing properties to heal acne, blackheads, and whiteheads.

1. Oatmeal:

Oatmeal is one of the best home remedies for treating acne and blackheads, whiteheads. It absorbs excess oil, prevents clogged pores, draws out toxins, shrinks pores, reduces acne, removes blemishes or any kind of spots, retains moisture into the skin, giving a firm and nourished skin.


How To Use:

You can use oatmeal alone mixing with water/milk/coconut water to treat the skin issues. Also, you can make a face pack mixing some other ingredients with oatmeal. Mix 1 tablespoon of oatmeal with 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 drops of tea tree oil (optional), a handful of rose petals and 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply on your face and neck and keep it for 5-7 minutes. Massage for 1-2 minutes and rinse with water.




2. Potatoes To Treat Acne:

Potatoes can absorb excess oil excellently and thus can cure acne, pimples and even acne scars. They also reduce under eye dark circles, puffiness, blemishes and the age spots too.

How To Use:

Cut cleaned potatoes into slices and rub the slices on your face and neck. Keep the juice on your face and neck for 15-20 minutes and rinse off. You can keep two slices on each of your eyes too. You can also grate the slices to take out the juice. Now add coconut milk or regular milk and turmeric to form a thick paste. Apply the paste on your face and neck, keep the paste for 10-15 minutes and wash off.





3. Baking Soda on Acne:

Baking soda is a powerful ingredient to heal acne breakouts, inflammation, acne scars. It is a great exfoliator to remove dead skin cells. After 2-3 uses, you will see a great difference on your skin.


How to use:

Take 1-2 teaspoon baking soda and mix with warm water (not hot), mix well to form a thick paste. Apply the paste on face and leave for 10-12 minutes and wash with plain water. For first few days you may feel the paste a bit strong, but don’t worry it will not harm. As you get habituated, you can increase the time span. You can also add to the mask lemon/orange juice and 1 teaspoon honey. As lemon/orange/honey individually is a good healing agent for acne.



3. Aloe Vera Gel to treat acne:

Aloe Vera absorbs the excess oil from the skin to prevent clogging of pores. It soothes irritation and redness, reduces inflammation and also cleans the pores from dirt, dead skin cells and sebum gathered in them. Aloe vera gel also works on wrinkles or fine lines and on age spots too. It can heal any kind of skin concerns.


How To Use:

You can use aloe vera gel alone on the face and keep it on your skin overnight as a night nourishment cream. Also, you can try a mask. Mix1 teaspoon aloe vera gel with 1 teaspoon honey and one pinch cinnamon powder and apply on face or on the targets, leave as long you will be comfortable, even you can leave the mask overnight. Rinse off with water.




4. Cabbage For Acne:

The vitamins ( A, B, C, E, and K) and minerals (potassium, sulfur, and copper) present in cabbage provide deep cleansing. Cabbage can absorb the excess oil from the skin, heal all skin concerns like acne, eczema, psoriasis, reduce inflammation, works on aging and the sun damaged skin, give nourishment and hydration to skin.


How To Use:

Put chopped cabbage, lemon juice, and olive oil/coconut oil in a blender and form a smooth paste. You can add grated carrot also. Apply the paste on your face, neck and leave for 15-20 minutes or more and wash off with water. You can also make a paste only with cabbage and apply on your face to heal acne, eczema and damaged skin.




5. Garlic For Acne:

Allicin present in garlic kills the bacteria causing acne. Its anti-inflammatory properties soothe the irritation and swelling. Garlic also reduces the appearance of acne scars, fights against free radicals and heals damaged skin.


How to Use:

Crush the 4/5 garlic cloves to form a juice and apply the juice directly on the affected area. Keep it for sometimes or as long as you can bear the burning sensation. Wash off. Some may not bear the burning sensation. They can add water/rose water/olive oil/coconut oil/honey to the garlic juice and apply.





With all the above home remedies you must ensure a healthy lifestyle to treat the skin concerns during monsoon. As this the time when the air is filled with all types of microbial organisms that lead to the skin infections, cleanliness should be considered over everything. Consumption of water must be increased to stay hydrated, use good moisturizer regularly, and the most important part is to Apply Sunscreen religiously. Avoid junk and spicy food, exercise daily to stay healthy and stress-free.


All the above home remedies are tried and tested by me only. These treatments work well on my combination and super sensitive skin. If you have any question regarding those home remedies, can ask in the comment section. I am all ear to hear from you.

Perk Up Your Living Room: A Guide

Living room always represents you and your aesthetic sense. It’s your own space to socialize with your friends and family through some cozy conversations. Or just a space where you can spend time with yourself after long hectic day by reading a book or simply watching a good movie. So, it is necessary to give your living room a welcoming feel, a cozy look. Monika Kamal, well renowned Interior Designer and Founder of Siddharth by MKC, luxury brand into furnishings shares a few tips on how to perk up your living room and transform it into an indulgent sanctuary. Visit Siddharth by MKC  to know more.


Living room


Curtains To The Rescue:

Things like curtains and carpets are highly noticeable and influential. Curtains are not just for privacy and cooling, they enliven your living room, set the ambiance and convey the story behind your home.

Curtains alone can make the decor styling or fusion. Paints, Wallpapers, and paneling don’t match the finishing touch and elegance brought on by curtains.

Few things to keep in mind while selecting curtains for your house or office are to consider the variations, the method of curtain hanging, the draping and pleating styles, the plethora of fabrics, the detailing etc. Don’t settle for ordinary curtains, put in the extra effort, seek help from designers and add some more life to your living room.

Rags to Rugs:

Rugs and carpets are very impactful when it comes to tying your floor space together. Ditch the centuries old Wall-to-wall carpet style and go for the trending area floor coverings.

Pair the color of your carpet and curtains and use the two together in a secondary color as a foolproof way to unite and stimulate your living room.



Scented Surrounding:

Adding a home fragrance to your living room adds a whole new sensory dimension. Home fragrances are a lot more than a simple finishing touch, they add an invisible layer of ambiance that connects and transforms the composition. Whether a subtle fresh scent or a deep floral, the scent you choose is a reflection of you and the ambiance you’re creating. Move beyond common scents like lemongrass, sandalwood, and rose and look for extraordinary fragrances. Find them at Siddharth By MKC



Aroma Diffuser

Elegant Additions

A handmade quilt, nubby woven cozy throw or a colorful blanket add an astonishing look when draped over the back or arm of a neutral sofa or chair. Match the color of your home accessories with other pieces in the room to create a living masterpiece!

Use indoor plants and bring in Mother Nature. They are both impactful and calming. Buy from the huge variety available in the market or Garden yourself.

Buy art that speaks to you. Paintings, sculptures or handicrafts can perk up your living room and speak on your behalf and help create a well-connected theme.




Cushions are your friends to strategically add Colors, Patterns, and Motifs. If you have a small chair, such as a desk chair or side chair, consider reupholstering the seat cushion in a bright color or print using a different fabric. Adding a new vogue color on even a small area can bring life to a dreary corner and everything together can perk up your living room!





I think these tips will help you a lot to transform your living room into a cozy and comfy space of your home. 


Thanks for reading. Stay tuned for more.
