Kava Kava or Piper methysticum is an herb that is generally used to treat mouth ulcers, mental awareness and as an aphrodisiac, however, it also acts as an excellent herb for treating the common symptoms of aging in a harmless and effective manner.
We have been on the hunt for alternatives to chemical skin creams for months now. We have been suggested a number of home-made remedies by friends and family alike but nothing seemed to give me the effects that we desired.
Chemical skin creams, despite working initially, is not a very efficient solution for long-term use, and thus, my quest began for finding an alternative that actually works.
And it is on this quest that we found a possible answer to that.
