There are some people who think the egg is the ultimate food. (I happen to think it is lobster, but that is for an entirely different article.) I am going to tell you how you can use just one single egg for your face, your hair, in your garden, and even to help out the birds.

Separate your egg. Separating the yolk from the white of an egg is actually quite easy. Gently crack your egg in half over a bowl, keeping the egg in its shell. Move the yolk back and forth between the two halves of shell while letting the white fall into your bowl. Place the yolk into another bowl and save for later.

For your facial. Gently whip your egg white. You just want to get it slightly blended, not frothy. Apply to your face and leave on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with cool water. This is my absolutely favorite type of facial. It leaves your skin feeling fantastic!

For your hair. Gently whip the egg yolk. Once again, you just want to blend it. You can use this either with your shampoo or as a rinse after shampooing. The protein in the yolk is great for your hair. It also brings out highlights and can actually help to lighten blonde hair.

For your garden. Crush the egg shells and just toss into your garden. They will gradually decay and add extra nutrients to the soil. Rosemary, especially, likes having an occasional meal of egg shells.

For the birds. You might notice from time-to-time, that birds will be carrying off some of your egg shells. Some birds will do this as they are preparing to lay their own eggs. The nutrients in the shells help to make the bird's own egg shells stronger.

Tips & Warnings

  • Never use the white of an egg in your hair. It will turn into cement! It will also be very difficult to get out of your hair.
