Why is lavender oil important? (Part 1)


💥 Lavender is a good pain killer (Analgesic). Analgesics can reduce pain and fever by restricting the production of prostaglandins. Production of prostaglandins constricts blood vessels, which restricts blood flow through the body. This, in turn, can increase body temperature which causes fever.  Lavender is great for headaches, burns and can soothe migraines due to these properties. It also has anti inflammatory properties.

💥Lavender is a sweet-smelling perfumery ingredient. In Rome, influential people had their clothes washed in lavender and also bathe with lavender in the bathwater. This kept them smelling fresh and clean. It also indicated a mark of a higher social status. You can never smell bad with lavender as your fragrance escort.

💥It reduces anxiety. Lavender contains a compound known as linalool, which when vapourised and smelled, has a calming effect. This can be used to ease anxiety as the calming effect is specifically anxiolytic, meaning that it is an anti-panic and anti-anxiety agent.

💥Lavender has antiseptic and antibacterial properties, it can help you prevent skin infections especially if you don’t have a broken skin. It can also prevent insect bites from being itchy, rubbing two to five drops of the oil on the affected area would go a long way. Some people have a strong reaction to lavender oil being used on their skin. It can cause allergic eczema or contact dermatitis.



“Omoyele Sowore Arrested!” This was the news that greeted our eardrums in the early hours of Saturday, 3rd August 2019. Particularly, he was arrested at 1:25 am by the operatives of the Department of State Security. What was his offence? He had called for a revolution in Nigeria with his now popular hashtag on twitter; #RevolutionNow and had scheduled a peaceful protest slated for August 5th 2019. It was clear from that the government on Nigeria was ready to clamp down on whoever was against it.

Before launching into the crux of this discourse, it is important to state the grounds that the Federal government and Sowore stand upon for the actions they have taken in respect to this case. On the part of the Federal government, they have relied on part 2 section 37 of the criminal code Act 1990 which talks about treason and the punishment for it thereof. On the part of Sowore, he has relied on section 39(1) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which talks about freedom of speech. It is equally important that as a matter of utmost seriousness, we examine the exact provision of part 2 section 37 of the criminal code Act 1990. It states expressly in subsection 1 that;

Any person who levies war against the state, in order to intimidate or overawe the President or the Governor of a state, is guilty of treason and is liable to the punishment of death”

The question we need to ask ourselves is; has Omoyele Sowore expressly contravened this position of the law or is the Federal government uncannily trying to infringe on his fundamental human rights as provided by Section 39(1) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria? Your answer is yes? Yours is No? Follow me on this journey and afterwards you can take your stand!

It is important to note that the growth and development of Nigeria as a state should be the topmost desire of every Nigerian, irrespective of bias or political affiliation. On the backdrop of this, in July 2019, Omoyele Sowore released a video in which he expressly stated that;

We don’t want war, we want a very clean, quick succinct revolutionary process-surgical. That we put an end to the shenanigans of government, that we put an end to oppression, the corruption of government”

With this statement made and the provision of Part 2 Section 37 of the criminal code 1990, has Omoyele Sowore in any way intimidated the Nigerian state? O r is it that the Federal government, who now seek to nail him to the cross are afraid of their shadow?

Without mincing words, it must be categorically stated that when the government of the day was elected in 2015, they coasted on the promise that they were going to combat corruption in all sectors in Nigeria. What would you have expected? I’m pretty sure that you would have expected that those people who were indicted coupled with those who were being investigated would have been put behind bars. Up till now, has anyone been served a jail term? No! Rather, in this regime, unimaginable things like snakes swallowing sums of money among other things have been heard. In this regime, Fulani herdsmen have gained popularity; in this same regime, Nigeria has been named the poverty capital of the world; In this regime, the prices of goods and services have skyrocketed. On the backdrop of these unfortunate circumstances, if a patriotic Nigerian then calls for a peaceful revolution, should he be clamped down upon? No!

In some quarters, the arguments might be that Sowore is inciting a revolution because he lost the 2019 general elections. This argument is laughable in the sense that when in 2003, the current president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria lost the 2003 elections, he led a massive protest. In 2007 too, he didn’t go to sleep. To crown it all, when in 2011 he lost again, his supporters went on riot, killing people and burning public and private properties. Was he arrested in relation to treason? No! Why then arrest Omoyele Sowore?

The arrest of Omoyele Sowore instead shows a government trying to hide its strategic failures; failures in the terms of the promises that roll in their ‘catacombs’, failures in security, failures in power, failure to give Nigeria a national carrier in the aviation sector. The government of Nigeria is using the arrest of Sowore to shroud the fact that it has succeeded in recruiting, old and counter-productive men as his ministers as against the promise to recruit vibrant minds; the government is using this to eshroud the fact that whoever joins the camp of their party is automatically a saint and those who do not are witch-hunted everywhere.

By the arrest of Sowore, the Federal government has expressly shown that it has no regards whatsoever for fundamental human rights, particularly the freedom of speech in this case. In the first place, Nigeria is in a state of comatose and when one Nigerian asks for a change, you clamp down on him and claim he had committed treason? Totally unacceptable.

Though disappointing, there are some Nigerian who would still come out bold faced and say what Sowore has done is wrong. However, it must be said that if all of us do not come together to show our discontent towards the excesses, ignorance to the plight of the masses and insensitivity towards the plight of the masses, we will continue to bear this untold hardship.

I leave you with this question; WHICH WAY NIGERIA?



Inquisitive concerning why your cosmetics look smeared? This may be the reason. Much the same as cells are the structure squares and establishment of life; mixing is the base and establishment of cosmetics. All things considered, it is the specialty of cosmetics. At the point when tones are not appropriately mixed and combined you wind up appearing as though a “paint-by-numbers” painting.

Ensure you mix your concealer, foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and setting powders well. It’s frequently best to buy and use a beauty blender, this is the best! A good mixing brush will serve a good purpose too.

Another great tip here is to check your cosmetics in various lights. Frequently cosmetics will look better under common daylight or a yellow-conditioned light, yet under the exemplary office neon light, the shadings and lines take on a tolerant look, so ensure you look set up under all lighting.
