can snow lotus cure menstrual odor?
Jyotisha Kaila
04 Aug 2016
What kind of odor are you talking about ?
Is it during the periods, before your period starts or after the cycle has ended?
If you are talking about odor during the menses, then it is natural. There is nothing wrong about it. Just make sure you take care of the hygiene. Do not use soaps, or douches in your vagina. If the odor is very strong, then it might be an indication of Urinary infection.

I am an author, and am working on a writing project that involves snow lotuses. I have a question I was hoping you could answer. Do you know when snow lotuses bloom? Specifically, do they bloom in spring or in summer? Or in both?

I know this is unrelated to your business. However, I have been unable to find the answer, and it occurred to me that you might know, or might be able to direct me to someone who knows.

Thank you very much.

I am 62 yrs old and in relatively good health. However, despite my fairly clean diet, my hair seems to be falling out at an alarming rate! I am at a loss as to what to do or take that can give my body what it needs to make full, healthy hair again. Can you help?

Are you sure yo do not suffer from any disease. Any problem related to Kidneys ?
I would still suggest that you get your Kindey Function test done . Because, Kidneys are an organ that will function optimally even when they are 80 percentage damaged. I do not want to scare you, but Hari fall at an alarming rate and as you said you feel your health is good may be a sign of Kidney disorder.
Just to make sure everything is okay, get this test done please.

Paul. You may use Snow Lotus oil with Coconut oil on the scalp. And then wash the scalp off after 2 to 3 hours. You may also use Chili infused oil on the scalp to control baldness.
