Sayer Ji, Contributor Activist Post Millions take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily for arthritis and related inflammatory conditions, but are completely unaware that far safer, and at least as effective, natural alternative already exist -- and are as easily accessible and inexpensive as the spices found in your kitchen cupboard.

[i] Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric's therapeutic value , few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions.

The other day the hubster came home from work with a pounding headache . He usually takes Excedrin for headache relief, but apparently that wasn’t cutting it on that particular day. He actually asked me if I would make up one of my “voodoo essential oil cures” . lol. Well, I am no expert, but my SISTER is, and I remembered her posting something on her blog, Camp Wander , about Peppermint and Lavender being effective in getting rid of headaches .

Hawthorne ( Crataegus ) is deciduous and a member of the rose family. The common name for hawthorne comes from haw , which is an old English word for "hedge." The tree's name simply means "thorny hedge." After the British General Enclosures Act of 1845 hawthorn was used extensively as hedgerow because of its thorny nature and quick growth, angering peasants who no longer could enter the lands they previously roamed at will. Its Latin name, Crataegus, means "hardness", referring to the quality of the wood. Cultivation
The crataegus plant – better known as the hawthorn – is a large genus of flowering trees and shrubs from the rosaceae family. The hawthorn flower is native to more temperate areas of Europe, Asia and North America, and can easily grow in either full or partial sun, and within a variety of soil types. Interspersed among strong, toothy leaves, the hawthorn flower blossoms from small white balls into delicate white, five-petaled blooms. These blooms surround tiny, pink-headed stamens, and are backed by five star shaped sepals. The stem of these flowers may appear to be vaguely swollen, this is due to the fact that it contains seeds that will, by the fall, develop into appealing red berries.
