Nowadays as soon as 3 am comes about, I put a bit of it on my temples, my forehead, my wrists and under my nose, as Ashley suggested and drift off to a blissful sleep in no time. Its scent is wonderfully calming with lavender, rosewood, sandalwood and tangerine. Even Balazs uses it sometimes when he has a hard time falling asleep :) Here is the full how to. What's your sleeping trick? xo

Homemade Sore muscle salve.... Excellent for those who can't use Icy Hot or BenGay! **Also add herbs like juniper, comfrey root, marjoram, basil, bay, arnica (an arnica cream rub is reputed to be very effective), eucalyptus, agrimony, helichrysum (one of my favorites that I have at home steeping right now), and birch bark (another favorite).
Homemade herbal sachets pull double duty for your fabric items by imbuing them with a fresh scent while deterring pests. Place on a hanger in a closet, in a drawer with lingerie or socks, in a chest with off-season garments or anywhere you’d like to offer a bit of fragrance and olfactory protection from pests.
Pinner says: All Purpose Healing Salve I'd love to share a testimonial - I made some and gave a bit to a friend who had had some sort of reaction to her sunscreen at the beach, and still got sunburned...her neck and chest had these really strange red, scaly, dry blotches everywhere. Dermatologist said she'd never encountered it and didn't know what it was - gave her some sort of ointment. She then had a reaction to the ointment. I gave her this and it was literally fixed OVERNIGHT.
