How to use your egg shell
I recently learned about some of the many benefits of eggshells. This is so intriguing for me because as someone that doesn’t like to waste anything that comes out of my kitchen, I find this really helpful.
So today, I want to share some of the common and unique uses for eggshells.
But before I show you, I need you to understand that before you use egg shell for anything, you must make sure they are clean and free from bacteria.
All you need to do is to rinse the shells inside and out, to remove any residue or membrane that may be stuck to it.
Please note that they also have to be hard boiled eggs and not raw eggs.
Now, that we’ve settled that, let’s learn the excellent uses of Egg shells you should know about.
1)Turn them into supplement powders: do you know that Eggshells are loaded with calcium? It’s actually what makes them so hard
Incase you don’t know what calcium does, they play big role in our bone health and helps us to maintain an healthy body.
There is also some evidence that suggests that eggshell powder can be a more absorbable form of calcium carbonate compared to what you find in most store-bought supplements.
So, get out your mortar & pestle or even blender and grind the dry eggshells into a fine powder. Treat it like protein powder and mix into smoothies, oatmeal, soups, coffee, tea – anywhere you think it’s a good fit. If you do that, You’ll give yourself a major dose of calcium.
For those of you have dogs, You can also sprinkle the eggshell powder on your dog’s food to help strengthen their teeth and bones.
2) Use for Seedlings: I remember those times in the secondary school when we were taught that we could use egg shells to start seeds for a garden, by adding a little soil in clean shells, planting the seeds, then when they’re ready, we plant the shell and all in the ground. Oh yes! it works.
You can also put eggshells in the compost pile, which we then use to nourish our vegetable garden. The calcium in the egg is very great for the soil.
3) Clean with them: Ground eggshells are the best scouring powder you can ever have. They can be used as an abrasive to clean stubborn pots & pans.
All you need to do is to ground the shells into powder and add a little soap and water and start scrubbing. It works like magic all the time.
4) use for face Facials: you don’t need to buy any expensive mix for facials, you can create your own facial mask which will give your skin a glowing vibe by mixing ground eggshells with some egg white and applying to your face.
When you do this, allow the face mask to dry before rinsing it off.
You can also treat Skin Irritations with the powder by dropping into a small container of apple cider vinegar and let it soak for a couple of days.
Dab the mixture on minor skin irritations or on itchy skin. you’ll be amazed at the result.
