*Former UN🌐 #chief Kofi Annan Dies😔 at 80*
Kofi Annan, the former UN secretary-general who won the Nobel Peace #prize for humanitarian #works , has died aged 80, international diplomats say.
He "passed away peacefully on Saturday after a short illness", the #foundation named after him said on Saturday.
Annan was the first #Black African to take up the role of the world's top diplomat, serving from 1997 to 2006.
He later served as the #UN special envoy for Syria, leading efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict.
In a statement announcing his death, the Kofi Annan Foundation described him as a " #global statesman and deeply committed internationalist who fought throughout his life for a fairer and more peaceful world". #africa#nobelprize#peace#prizeforpeace#rip REST IN POWER. @yunatz
Home made wet ones or baby wipes!
There was a video a while back about how to make your own baby wet wipes. For the life of me I couldn't find it to make my own or share, but I found a very similar recipe by Buddha Nappies and I have just added Frankincense to the mix for its cellular healing properties and its great for the skin and a normal inflammatory response. These beauties are natural, chemical free, antibacterial, antifungal and will break down loads quicker than the regular wipes you get from the shops.
Half a large roll of paper towel (original video I saw said Viva were great strong ones that don't fall apart)
If you're into reusing cloth facewashers or the like, try those instead in a glass container
2 Cups of hot/warm water
2 (heaped) Tablespoons Coconut Oil
10 drops DoTerra Lavender
10 drops DoTerra Tea Tree
5 drops DoTerra Geranium
5 drops DoTerra Frankincense (My kids are a bit older now but if you have younger kids/babies, please feel free to dilute it down further for younger skin)
Place paper towel in a container (I found mine at the OP shop, or cut it in half for a smaller container), mix all the other ingredients together until the coconut oil is melted (and cooled a little before adding the oils to maintain the healing properties in the oils) and pour over paper towel. Wait a minute until the liquid has softened the towel then pull out the cardboard centre (the small amount of glue holding the paper on should be softened). #homemade#diy#nappywipes#wetones#babywipes#coconutoil#essentialoils#mumlife#natural#toxinfree#works
