Cucumber Essential Oil For All Woes

You know this Cucumber is just one such fruit which no matter topically applied or consumed…does the same amount and kind of benefit…

Cucumber (formally called Cucumis Sativus) extract is widely known for its astringent and soothing effects….on top of its anti-inflammatory actions and skin tightening properties….The ones who use it regularly experience tightness when the juice dries on my face …And whenever it’s about the use and the visible effects of the fruit…one got to keep a little patience…Because this fruit is like one of those slow helpers who would accomplish each and every task you expect out of them but just taking a little time and expecting you to be patient and understanding….

Okay…One quick handy tip…Apply some juice on my dry face…leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing off…See the instant glow (Yeah I know it is contrasting to what I just mentioned in the previous paragraph but this too is true…) on the skin of your face…

Cucumbers are categorized mainly as –

  • Slicing
  • Pickling
  • Exotics

It’s simply within these categories…that you’ll find varieties requiring lots of space/trellises…or dwarf varieties for small spaces or containers….Many of the slicing and exotic cucumbers have thin smooth skin that does not need removed before eating…Cucumbers in the market though…generally have a thicker waxier skin helping with transport…While you can pickle any small cucumber…pickling varieties are smaller and crunchier than slicing varieties…

When it comes to growing slicing cucumbers…The best enjoyed is ‘Sweet Success’ hybrid…Each vine produces straight…thin fruit two to three inches in diameter and 12 or more inches long…The dark skin is spineless and the flesh seedless…This 1983 All-American Selections winner produces many burp less cucumbers throughout the season and is disease resistant….The fruit is set without pollination so may be grown in a greenhouse…Because this vine is so vigorous…support is recommended….Amazing no?

Cucumbers are an ancient fruit reported to originate in India nearly 3000 years ago…Indian food was spicy 3000 years ago…but if it was…I’m sure the cucumber was a popular compliment to that heat…Spicy heat isn’t the only heat that cucumbers combat…Hot days are prime for the cucumber to take centre stage….

You know I remember when I was young mom had kept this house-keeper to do the minor house chores…Because my mom was a working lady…That female I remember used to mop the floor…did the vacuuming…washed the dished…made our beds and when needed…prepared snacks for us! I called her ‘superwoman’ and mom used to get jealous…

Anyway…I am I am down to drawing a bizarre parity…But yes I’d say this cucumber oil is no less than my ‘superwoman’ house-keeper! (I Know if possible you guys would’ve hurled tomatoes at me for this!)…But I hope you understood the essence of the title…Prolific Cucumber…

Cucumber Oil also contains notable amounts of Oleic and Palmitic Fatty Acids…All that which obese people and ones with high-cholestrol and generally unhealthy people keep searching for in foods (And I know the one needed for heart problems is Omega 3…Don’t take me for an unaware dunderhead)
