Natural Hint Of The Day: Mice, Ants, and Cockroaches Be Gone!

As winter descends we may find our homes invaded by uninvited guests.  Peppermint essential oil is a powerful and safe ally in preventing or interrupting the onslaught.  The scent that is so delicious to us sends them running for the hills!  Simply soak (approximately 5 drops) a cotton ball with high quality peppermint oil (quality counts) and place in the right spot.  What is the right spot?  If your problem is mice it is best to act preventatively.  The cotton balls are most effective when placed at possible points of entry or protectively around items you don’t want them getting into.  As a preventative measure they significantly reduce chances of an infestation even starting.  No stress, no poisons, no moments of “ick factor.”  After the rascals are in your home its a bit more challenging.  The peppermint soaked cotton balls are still powerful but they won’t make the mice leave the home.  There are still many “non peppermint” places to hide.  They can be used as a protective hedge around whatever you don’t want them accessing.  Encroachment stopped!  As for ants and cockroaches simply place the balls in any paths or where activity is noted and voila!  They will retreat to sweeter smelling adventures.  Here’s to safe and effective natural remedies!

Marshmallow Tea — Easy And Effective Digestive Strengthening

I have struggled with severe GERD, ulcers, and esophageal scarring most of my life.    Of course the foods I love the most also wreck the most havoc.  Coffee, heavily spiced foods, wine, and my beloved jalapeno peppers leave me struggling through heart burn and worse.  While heart burn is uncomfortable, I am more concerned with the long term damage unchecked GERD creates.  For me, a holistic approach–including herbal strengthening of my digestive system — has resulted in greater freedom, fewer side effects, and a stronger digestive system than experienced before.   Continue reading

Each woman is different.  We are different ages, have different lifestyles, different habits, and different health concerns.  Our skin reflects these differences and our needs/desires are equally divergent.  How can all of us find satisfaction in one size fits all beauty products?  We simply can’t.  Why sacrifice our skins needs to companies that limit their options for the convenience of mass production?

IMG_3972

I have a insane ability to imagine every conceivable “wrong” that can occur in my life and my blood pressure responds accordingly.  This natural hard wiring plus the high pressure of “type A” Northern Virginia and raising four teenagers means I had an intimate relationship with anxiety and sleepless nights.  With all the demands that face us, I bet most of you can relate to struggling with stress and trying to calm your mind and relax your body.  I was incredibly grateful to discover a healthy, non addictive, anxiety remedy/sleep aid that is all natural and easy to grow/make.   Continue reading
