Okay everybooty! I just made some awesome stuff. I was searching on youtube at the library and I was eating an energy bar at the time and I was bored, and then the universe gave me a good slap on the face and told me to get back to my herbies. I followed this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQJmYFGJ5ow&feature=relmfu and I love it. I’m spraying this stuff everywhere, even on cat Luna after she uses the litter box. She doesn’t like it very much, but she sure smells better, and I like to think I’m killing all the plague-possible bacterias. Thieves blend was used by people to go steal stuff from people’s houses while they had the plague but the thieves didn’t get the plague because they used this blend! I learned that story from a friend a few months back so I’m not sure about it’s authenticity. Okay so I just looked it up and it’s true! Look! http://www.secretofthieves.com/four-thieves-vinegar.cfm

Tomorrow I’m going to make her laundry soap that is a penny and a half a load! Stay tuned.

This lotion is on hella sale because it’s a combination of 3 awesome lotions. The price should be jacked up 3 times because it’s so incredible, but it’s not so go and buy 3 of them instead! That’s what I did, and I put two in the fridge to keep the goodness intact while I use the first one. I use this lotion for my face mostly but it is so potent and good that you can use it on anything, I just use it on my face so that it lasts longer on my small budget.

got two packages today from Juniper Ridge and Annie’s Dead Sea Warehouse. it’s so exciting to get packages!!! lots of goodies in these boxes that traveled in trucks and maybe in the air to get to me. molly tried dead sea warehouses soap, face polish, mud mask and lotion. she liked it, but i’ll get her to make a post or a comment on her **experience**

dada listens to npr. cannnooot focus on words in head and words in the air

my favorite book is: Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes!!! this book is an amazing help in my life all the time. it is like the bible for me.

i’ve been working on some lavender infused apple cider vinegar. i should take some pictures, maybe, you think? and maybe some directions too. directions are easy though. put whatevah you want in the vinegar (hot dogs, butter, nails**) then put it in a glass jar in a sunny window. shake the jar daily and 2 weeks later…..done! i use vinegar on my hair as a rinse. i mix the vinegar with water so its no so potent. usually 1 part vinegar 4-6 parts water. i put it on my hair and leave it for about a minute and wash it out. my boyfriend tells me i smell like a pickle, but i also use it for other reasons, like it makes my hair shiny and healthy and soft, and keeps my scalp feeling nice. no proofreading dont care

**if you don’t have natural hot dogs, butter or nails in your garden, you can use any other plant that you like, except poisonous ones or ones that make you hurt! lavender, mint types, catnip, yarrow are some that i am using right now.

Found an interesting site that talks about the chemicals in sunscreen.

Barbara’s organic homemade herbals are great! I take her Nettles Tincture daily to help my allergies (and it has also magically kept the redness in my face down as well). I’ve tried many of her oil. Her Skinny Massage Oil is one of my all time favorite oils and the chap sticks she makes soothe chapped lips. Her Leave-In Conditioner is really great too. Heck, all of her things are worth trying. She works from home, and grows many of her own herbs. Support this great local woman!

AWESOME STUFF!! I use this for my back aches and pains. It is very hot (“spicy cayenne on skin” hot), so it needs to be used in small amounts and on areas of non-sensitive skin. The crazy hot action happens for me only when I start to get hot/sweating in the area I put it on. The hot sensation also happens for a very long time. For these reasons, it is very important not to put too much on. I used to put it on in the morning before biking to work. Then after my 8 hour long day, I would bike home and when I started to sweat the hot sensation would kick in again! This is amazingly potent stuff that really really helps. Keeps my muscles feeling loose and limber. I got the big metal tin for $16.50 and I’ve been working on it for the last two years. I make sure to keep it in a cool, dry place to keep it fresh. Any questions? Please just ask!
