One of the hallmarks of any festive occasion is the popping of Champagne corks. There is something about this sparkling wine from France that has always been associated with good times and living the high life. For brides and grooms trying to decide how to include Champagne in their own celebration, here is a basic primer.

The first thing that many people do not realize is that true Champagne comes only from the region of France of the same name. Anything else is a sparkling wine, but is not truly Champagne. Champagne was created hundreds of years ago in France, and gets its bubbly nature from a process of second fermentation. It was first enjoyed by royalty, thus the association of Champagne with being luxurious. There is nothing quite like sipping a fine glass of the bubbly, while all decked out in a fabulous bridal gown and crystal bridal jewelry. Between the Champagne and the glamorous crystal bridal jewelry, you are sure to feel like royalty yourself, at least for one day.

There are a number of famous French Champagne houses. Some of the more famous include: Taittinger, Moet et Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, and Perrier-Jouet, to name a few. Of course when choosing a top bottle of Champagne, you can expect to pay top dollar; prices start at around $40 for 750ml and can run into well over $500 a bottle! If you are planning to serve a lot of Champagne at your wedding, look into buying it by the case; you can usually find volume discounts.

Champagne is typically produced using a blend of white Chardonnay grapes and black Pinot Noir grapes (though other varieties, like Pinot Meunier are also used). Rose Champagne has a little bit of red wine added to create its signature pink color. That could be a lovely choice for a pink themed wedding celebration.

Another thing to know about Champagne is how sweet is is. The different types (from driest, or least sweet) are: brut natural, extra brut, brut, extra sec, sec, demi-sec, and doux, the sweetest. The difference depends on how much sugar is added. The earlier Champagnes tended to be quite sweet, but today the most popular is brut. If you are unsure about which to choose, that is a safe bet. Many people find the sweeter Champagnes to be too cloying.

Most Champagnes are non-vintage, meaning that they were made by combining grapes from different years. Vintage Champagne, on the other hand, is created when at least 85% of the grapes used are from the same year. This is done in cases of a particularly fine harvest, and results in a top quality Champagne. Vintage Champagne will be considerably more costly than non-vintage.

The most special Champagnes of all are the prestige cuvée, which are the top of the line creations from each brand. Some of the best known are Dom Perignon by Moet et Chandon and Cristal by Louis Roederer. If money is no object and you truly want to impress your guests, by all means, pop the cork on one of these premier bottles.

For many couples, money does matter, and in that case, there are some other options available besides Champagne. The least expensive is to serve a sparkling wine from California instead. A mid-range option is to serve a good bottle of the Italian sparkling wine, Prosecco. This is a nice option if you want to serve your guests a special treat without spending too much.

The Champagne toast is one of the highlights of any wedding. Make yours extra special by carefully choosing a wonderful Champagne to serve your guests. Then pop the cork, and let the celebration begin!

How to clean a cluster “Aqua Aura Quartz Crystal”?

I have 2 questions about “Aqua Aura Quartz Crystal”

1.) How do i clean a cluster of “Aqua Aura Quartz Crystal.”
I am afraid using chemicals will wash the gold away. It is just a feeling i get, because I love my How to clean a cluster “Aqua Aura Quartz Crystal” a lot, i don’t want to damage it.
2.) Can the “Aqua Aura Quartz Crystal” be placed in the alter, to increase the energy work.

don’t use any chemicals at all!

Go over it with a soft brush to get rid of any dust then hold it under running water and either let it air dry or gently pat dry with a soft cloth. I’d also cleanse it through incense smoke and let it sit in a patch of moonlight to charge it.

And yes any crystal can be placed on your altar :) Look up the properties of your crystal to see what specific energies it will lend to your work.

These traditional Chinese home remedies for constipation are easy to prepare, safe and effective. Most of them are made from common ingredients with natural, bowel lubricating and moistening actions. Others are exercises and massage techniques you can do to help move your bowels. Also included here is advice on eliminating and relieving primary causes of constipation. This is absolutely necessary if you want to have regular bowel movements AND you want these home remedies for constipation relief to work well. After all, what’s the point in taking a remedy for constipation while at the same time continuing to, for instance, eat foods that cause or contribute to the problem?

Natural Remedies and Constipation

Some of these are adult constipation remedies only, however some may be given to both adults and children. Start with a remedy you feel fits your particular needs and stick with it for a while. If you’ve also made some dietary and lifestyle modifications, as outlined below, and it still doesn’t work then try another remedy. Be patient though – blocked, constipated bowels usually take months, or years, to manifest, so don’t expect to reverse your condition overnight!

Home Remedies For Constipation

Remedy One: Honey Tea

Add 3 grams of green tea leaves and a tablespoon of honey to a mug of hot water. Wait several minutes. Drink warm after meals. Moistens the intestines and frees the stools. Particularly suitable for constipation in the elderly and constipation after child birth.

Remedy Two: Honey & Sesame Oil Drink

Add a tablespoon of honey and a dash of sesame oil to a mug of hot water. Stir well. Repeat every morning before breakfast. Moistens the intestines and frees the stools. Especially suitable for habitual constipation with dry stools.

Remedy Three: Sweet Mulberry Drink

Bring two bowls of water to the boil. Add 60 grams of fresh, ripe, dark mulberries. Continue boiling till one bowl of liquid is left. Strain the dregs, and add white or crystal sugar to taste. Drink frequently. Suitable for adults and children.

Remedy Four: Molasses Drink

Add two tablespoons of molasses to a glass of warm water and stir. Drink twice daily. One of the mildest yet most reliable home remedies for constipation. Suitable for adults and children – give children just one spoon of molasses though.

Remedy Five: Banana & Fig Smoothie

Not really a traditional Chinese home remedy for constipation but effective, and highly nutritious, all the same. Put 2 or 3 fresh figs or dates, a very ripe banana, a spoon of honey or molasses and a cup of water into a blender. Mix well and drink once a day or so. Suitable for adults and children.

Remedy Six: Senna Leaf Tea

Put 1-3 grams of Senna leaf in a mug and add hot water. Let steep for several minutes before drinking. One of the most powerful, natural home remedies for constipation. Good for moving hard stools with signs of heat in the body, e.g. a red face, feeling hot, bad breath, dark yellowish urine. Senna leaf is a strong laxative and not recommended for long term use, though, or during pregnancy or menstruation, or by those who are weak from illness or constitutionally weak.

Remedy Seven: Spinach Soup

Make a simple spinach and water soup and add a little salt. Another gentle yet effective home remedy for constipation relief – soothes and stimulates your bowels. You may also add carrot to the soup to further stimulate and soothe your bowels. Suitable for adults and children.

As mentioned, above, in addition to taking home remedies for constipation relief you should try to identify and eliminate the cause of your constipation. Diet is usually the primary cause, i.e. excessive eating of nutritionally dead foods such as white bread, cakes, cookies, pastries, candy, over cooked foods, over cooked meats and too many pasteurized dairy products like milk, all of which do little more than clog up your colon. The closer your food is to its natural state the better is for you AND your colon!

Emotional stress is another common cause of constipation. Breathing exercises and acupressure are simple yet highly effective ways to deal with stress, anxiety, negative emotions, nervousness and worry.

Here are some techniques you can start using right away: http://chinese-holistic-health-exercises.com/breathing-techniques-reduce-stress.html

Additionally, your body likes regularity so you should try to eat at set times and empty your bowels at set times, e.g. sit on the toilet every morning at the same time regardless of whether or not you feel you need to go.

To your health!

Is this still considered inproper?

My neice’s wedding is next month,and I’d like to purchase something that I could wear again,like perhaps to work,or something. I found a nice pant suit,with a jacket that’s got austrian crystals on it,quite elegant,but it’s black. I thought it was ok in this day and age,however the woman at the dress store thought it was inappropriate.. Any feedback on this one?I believe her wedding is 3 pm

If your family is very traditional than it could be considered improper. You should try checking with other people that you know who are going to attend and ask what color they will be wearing. Then you will know if other people will wear black, so that you don’t stand out or be the only person in black.

Making a mulberry paper flower corsage and boutonniere can be a very easy task. A corsage can be made to be worn on the lapel, at the neckline, at the waist, on a wrist, or even placed on a handbag and a boutonniere will be worn on a mans lapel.

At the back of the mulberry flower or flowers of your corsage or boutonniere you may want to put mulberry paper flower buds of the flower you are using, lace, tulle, ferns, or leaves. You can add beads, simple pearl sprays, a ribbon bow, or glitter to add more dazzle and this will add to the beauty of the corsage or boutonniere.

When making a simple single flower corsage you will want to use a flower that you are using in the bridal bouquet. If the mulberry paper flower that you have chosen is a larger flower you may want to add just a few leaves or a spray of pearls to the back of the flower cutting them to the length desired then use floral tape and wrap together then add a pretty bow to the short curved stem that you have left on the flower.

You can also add a little glitter to the flower to give it a little more dazzle and if you want it to smell good add a small drop of fragrance oil to it. All you need to do to add the glitter is use spray glue and spray the paper flower, sprinkle on a little glitter let dry, and then spray with a spray gloss that is made for paper and let it dry; do this before making the corsage.

A boutonniere can be made in almost the same way only you probably will not want to add a ribbon bow.

To make a corsage using multiple mulberry paper flowers all you need to do is arrange the paper flowers together and the leaves or filler flowers then cut to the length desired for your corsage and then tape them together using your floral tape. You may want to add some glitter and add some good fragrance to them.

Add a pretty bow and maybe even a crystal bead spray to your corsage and it will be something to be proud of and just think you can brag that you made it yourself.

You can also make a boutonniere using a couple of the mulberry paper flowers or even the buds of the flowers that are being used for your wedding. Just take a flower or two add some pearl or bead sprays maybe a leaf or two cut to the desired length wrap with floral tape. Take the stem and curve or make a small curl  in it for a little definition for your boutonniere.

There are many other types of corsages and boutonnieres that can be made using the mulberry paper flowers  these are just the beginning. You may want to try some other types on your own by adding other things to your corsages or boutonnieres.

Make your mulberry wedding flowers the talk of the town and your wedding the most beautiful of all.
