Serumen – The skin in the outer one-third of your ear canal has special glands that produce a waxy substance called cerumen. This substance protects, lubricates, and slows down the growth of bacteria in your ears.
Earwax helps keep dirt out of the ear and slows the growth of bacteria, but it can build up over time if not removed. When it becomes too hard to clean naturally, it can be irrigated or removed safely by your health care provider.
How to Make Saline Solution at Home
Serumen is an essential skin care product that infuses your skin with numerous health-supporting nutrients. It’s also easy to make at home, with just a few mixing spoons and a few essential oils.
This simple serum recipe uses Roman chamomile to calm irritated skin and lavender, tea tree, and frankincense essential oils to help reduce acne and scarring. All of these skin-supporting essential oils are diluted in an equal amount of carrier oil before being added to this DIY serum.
Vitamin C is a key ingredient in this homemade serum, as it has the ability to improve your skin’s elasticity and brighten its complexion. It also has antimicrobial properties that help keep your skin clear of germs and blemishes.
Microwave heating can speed up chemical and biochemical reactions by accelerating the transfer of energy to the reactant. This heating effect is based on the ability of polar molecules to absorb microwave radiation and align themselves with the externally applied field, thereby producing heat.
As a general rule, the more efficient a solvent is in coupling with microwave energy, the faster the reaction mixture will increase in temperature. This is determined by a ratio called the dielectric loss, or complexed permittivity (e”) to the dielectric constant of the sample.
For polar reagents, the higher the value of e”, the more efficiently the molecule will convert microwave energy into thermal energy. This is due to the aforementioned torsional effect whereby polar molecules rotate back and forth and continually realign themselves with the external field, which causes them to gain or lose heat.
