Herb Packs for the Gums

Friday, August 12, 2011

Gum "packs" are a great way to apply warming, astringent, and tissue-healing herbs right to the gums. Take a pinch of powdered turmeric, goldenseal root, calendula flower, willow bark, or oak bark, then add enough water or vitamin E to make a paste. Tuck this paste in next to the teeth and let it sit. You can also try powdered gotu kola mixed with castor oil (the mix should have a clay-like consistency).


Everyone knows how relaxing it is to float in the ocean. Use these salts to create your own "mini" ocean in the tub. You can find dried seaweed and kelp at most natural food stores. Sea salt, made by evaporating seawater, has made its way into cooking and cosmetics. It's also known as bay or solar salt.

1 cup sea salt
1/4 cup powdered kelp or seaweed

Mix together the salt and kelp and pour into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid.

TO USE: Pour a 1/2 cup into your bath under running water

Lavender Oil for Burns

Thursday, August 11, 2011

I just wanted to share a story of how I treated a burn of mine this morning. I had been cooking in a skillet on the store and I had placed the glass lid on top of one of the other burners when I was done cooking. Later I came back and grabbed the lid to put in the dishwasher not knowing the burner was on underneath it. Needless to say, every one of my fingers were burned and I was in terrible pain. I ran to my medicine cabinet and grabbed the Lavender Oil and poured it over my hand and fingers praying that this was going to stop the burning pain. Within 15 minutes my fingers were completely pain free, with no blisters. What a relief to know it worked so quickly. I suggest that no one be without a bottle of Lavender Oil in their medicine cabinets now.
