Homemade Probiotic Deodorant – That Really Works!
Probiotics. A buzzword within the natural health community. And rightfully so! Most health conscious individuals understand the positive effects on digestion that come from using probiotic foods and supplements. In fact, the benefits of ingesting probiotics have been well researched and the craze is taking over. If you haven’t already heard of fermented foods, kefir, and kombucha you will soon. Likewise, as the known benefits of probiotics are now expanding into mainstream culture, new research is showing remarkable promise for the use of this “good bacteria” in topical remedies. Emerging thoughts include the idea that probiotics can actually help improve the balance of bacteria on your skin, very similar to the way they are known to improve the balance of bacteria in your digestive system.

Allow me to make this simple for you – some of those chemicals and additives that reside in store-bought toothpaste can be toxic to your health. Powder on your teeth? We are currently learning more about the subject of our oral health, and have found Ramiel Nagel’s book, Cure Tooth Decay, to be an invaluable resource. In his book, Nagel recommends a simple tooth powder to use for brushing, consisting of only baking soda, sea salt, and a bit of essential oil. As I researched other herbs that may be beneficial for teeth, I found that sage has been used for years by other cultures as a natural tooth whitener. Our tooth powder contains only a few ingredients that can all contribute to a healthy smile and promote fresh breath. Peppermint Sage Tooth Powder (Makes ½ cup of tooth powder) Ingredients: Directions: Last words

Have you got the bottle! ok bottling time! i used the old fashioned siphoning technique of put the bucket high with a tube in. suck the tube till the liquids nearly out then put the end into the bottle. this may seem slightly counterproductive after all the sterilising you did but on the plus side u may be lucky and get a lil taste he he. now me and my bro could only find ten 500ml bottles untill we cleaned out the store.... massive preserving jar to the rescue! box em up and put them back in the cool dry place. like i said i have heard stories of bottles exploding so best to put em in a box somewhere where out of the way that you wont mind cleaning up. right now leave em for another 8 days in the bottles (and jars) for the rest of the sweet sugars to be turned into alcohol and the gasses to buil up some pressure. ive heard this brew, if done correctly, can last up to 2 years but im not gonna wait that long.

Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Facial Hair On Women Although there are several methods to remove female mustache hair, waxing is the preferred method. Waxing removes facial hair for up to six weeks without the threat of embarrassing stubble or shadow. Additionally, the hair that grows back is often finer and thinner. Sugaring, the homemade version of waxing, performs virtually the same function as waxing but uses common household items, such as cotton fabric, sugar and lemon juice, rather than a professional hair-removal waxing kit. Cut two strips of cotton measuring 1 by 2 inches using an old T-shirt or bolt of cotton fabric. Dust your upper lip with a light layer of baby powder. Dip out a small amount of sugar wax using the craft stick and spread the sugar wax on your upper lip, working from the center of the nose outward. Pull your lip taut by placing your less dominant hand onto the skin next to the area being waxed and pressing down lightly. Remove excess sugar wax with a cotton ball dampened with baby oil.
