    Stress-Related Nape Tension and Pain

    Eucalyptus is a great relaxer and stress reliever. A couple drops of eucalyptus on the palms will soothe the entire body. Lavender candles or lavender sachets under the pillow are also good stress relievers.

    Itching but no fleas!

    Olive oil is good. I give my dog brewer's yeast for his dry skin. I'm not sure if you can give brewer's yeast to cats but you might check with a vet.

    There are several different types of candle making kits available in craft stores. They are a great way to introduce your children to the art of candle making. After they have worked with them for awhile you can decide whether they are old enough for a bigger project.

    Removing Candle Wax From Carpet

    I want to cry. One of my pillar candles burned a hole through in the back and I did not notice it until wax had dripped down the stand and on to my new carpet. Any tips on how to remove the wax and save the carpet would be great.

    Hugging and Your Health

    I am not someone who necessarily goes around hugging everyone but I certainly do enjoy getting a hug. I especially enjoy a hug when I'm not expecting it. Those bring the most joy of all.

    Eliminating Water Fluoridation

    I only drink purified water but I do use water from the tap for cooking. I suppose we are also exposed during bathing because I imagine a small amount could seep into our skin.

    Truly authoritative sources for herbal information?

    The lack of a good resource is one thing that kept me from trying herbals for so long. I don't have any good resources near me locally and, as Stargazer mentioned, you don't know how much of what you read on the internet can be trusted. That is why I was glad when I found Herbalist Hut.

    To the potion makers: Queen of Hungrey Water, best recipes?

    I had never heard of this until reading this post. I found a couple places on the internet where you can order it but no recipes. I have never tried to make my own potions. It does seem like it would be interesting to try sometime.

    Too Much!

    I have the same problem in the air freshener aisle and also the perfumes and cologne. I even have a problem if the person in front of me in church is wearing a perfume or aftershave that is too strong.

    My favorite juicing combination is pink grapefruit, orange and lemon. It is a great vitamin C boost for your immune system. For a quick energy pickup I like 1 sprig of mint and 1/2 a pineapple with ice.

    I like starfruit with just a little bit of Stevia. It helps adding a little sweet to cut through the tangy. Before a friend introduced me to Stevia I used to use sugar on grapefruit so I decided to try the Stevia on starfruit. It's really not bad.
