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.
I have a friend how has been having excessive bleeding during her menstrual cycle for the past three months. Her doctor has ordered to tests to determine the problem. One test he ordered was to check her glucose level. I have never heard of glucose testing for menstrual bleeding. Has anyone...
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.
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.
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.

I love the scent of lavender. I add it to my bath water at the end of the day. It is very relaxing. It is the perfect scent to soothe and calm after a long stressful day at work. What is your favorite essential oil?
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.
I have been reading a lot about the benefits of magnesium for the body. It is good for both muscle and joint health. Has anyone here used magnesium? I am looking for all-natural, cost-effective supplements.
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.
