All in day!!!! A BAJA story …..

When we say all our  BAJA dress  are made with handpicked fabrics and each dress is carefully handcrafted we mean it.

I love frocks/ dresses and always wanted something that i can wear here in Bangalore , dresses that covers my knees, tailor fit , very modest yet stylish/elegant  and are vintage inspired .

BAJA was born because of this love for frocks /dresses and with strong Indian roots.  So we love working with traditional Indian fabrics and kaarigari .

Today in BAJA unit we needed all the working hand , so yes ended up cutting the pattern to stitching, loved every bit of it  IMG_2917IMG_2911IMG_2920   IMG_2923

WOW Honey ;)

When i am putting down skin care and hair care regime for my clients i generally prefer to keep it very simple and something that they can just grab from their kitchen shelf .  So let me tell you ” why ” honey

Honey – “natural” alternative to medicine

One of the most important attributes of raw honey in this context is that it possesses inherent antibacterial properties. This makes it particularly useful in treating burns, peptic ulcers, gastroenteritis, and infections. 

The properties that make honey such a potent antibacterial agent are high viscosity; low pH;  low availability of free water; and its natural ability to produce hydrogen peroxide.

 

  1. Honey inhibits bacterial growth by stopping it at the cellular level.
  2. Honey also generally has a pH value between 3.2- 4.5, making it a very acidic agent. Thus, most types of honey will inhibit growth of bacteria.
  3. Honey has a low availability of water for bacteria to use, being about 84% fructose and glucose. The 15-21% of water by weight in honey strongly interacts with the sugar molecules and, thus, there is very little left available for anything else (like bacteria).
  4. Honey also has an enzyme, glucose-oxidase that produces hydrogen peroxide. Fully ripened honey has a pretty low level of hydrogen peroxide and when you dilute the honey in water, this enzyme’s activity increases by a factor of up to 50,000, making it a very effective slow release antiseptic. This “slow release” effect is particularly helpful as it does not damage healthy tissue, rather these slow release, low doses kill only the germs, while leaving the healthy tissue unharmed.                                                                                   
  • Will keep you all posted on other things that you can grab from your kitchen shelf and look WOW :).             ——-   Love      Babita jaishankar
