Honey and cinnamon cures - do they really work? Here's what you need to know (NaturalNews) Hopeful newcomers to holistic health marvel at reports about honey and cinnamon as a miracle cure-all. On the other hand, alternative health skeptics scoff at the notion of cinnamon and honey as medicine, pointing out that the plethora of articles about the curative benefits of this food duo originated with a 1995 article in the tabloid newspaper Weekly World News. The truth is that cinnamon and honey have been used to promote health for centuries, but their efficacy depends largely on a lifestyle of energetic activity and whole foods.In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), cinnamon is viewed as possessing heat or yang, and is thus used to cure ills stemming from excess yin or coldness. Honey, in this system, is viewed as a neutral substance, balanced between yin and yang. Honey possesses natural anti-bacterial properties. Drinking honey and cinnamon in lukewarm water results in them moving through the bladder and cleansing it, as well as clearing infections there.

Homemade Lip Balm | FIMBY You've stumbled upon one of my most popular posts. You might also enjoy let's talk lip balm. After making my own lip balm I will never buy it again. It's easy, cheap, 100% natural and good for your lips, especially this time of year. Ingredients 1/2 oz. Directions In a small pot over medium low heat melt beeswax, coconut oil, lanolin and vitamin E. This recipe makes enough for 3 - 3/4 oz tins (see photo for size) and one 1 1/2 oz jar. Notes I prefer to measure kitchen cosmetics with a scale but I included the approximate tsp. measurements for those without a scale. All ingredients can be found at a natural food store or ordered from an online store such as Mountain Rose Herbs. Some people are allergic to lanolin. I always use solid honey, that's just the kind of have. This recipe makes enough to last our family of 5 several months, plus I usually give away a tin from each batch I make.

DIY Laundry Detergent! Save BIG &Have Fresh, Clean Laundry! | Well, I did it! I have pinned various recipes for homemade laundry detergent for months, now, thinking that soon I would gather the exotic ingredients and muster the courage to make some. I should have paid a lot more attention to those recipes I was pinning. There is nothing exotic about the ingredients, nor is it difficult. I’m actually mourning a little bit, for all the money I have wasted over the years, just not realizing I could do this quickly and simply. Two weeks ago, I sat down to earnestly study all the pins I have for DIY laundry detergent. Once I actually stopped to look at the details, I was shocked. My own DIY brand! The one thing that they all had in common was that they make gigantic batches – 10 to 12 gallons, at a time. Why would I bother to make laundry detergent when I could just conveniently grab a bottle off the shelf at the store? These ingredients are easy to find and very inexpensive! Still need a list of reasons to try this? 20¼¢!! Ingredients Instructions Notes:
DIY Body Wash! Turn a $1 Bar of Soap into Luxurious Body Wash! As you know, I enjoy the Dollar Tree....A LOT. While I was there picking up supplies for our DIY Halloween T-Shirts, I came across a bar of Oil of Olay. I'm not a fan of bar soap but I thought I could turn it into a body wash. Here's what you're going to need: Bar of Soap (any kind)Cheese Grater (or knife if the soap is soft enough)WaterMeasuring cup (1 cup)PotHeat Safe SpoonStoveContainer for your Body Wash Your first step is to grate your soap. I only grated half of my bar. Now, since I didn't want a ton of body wash, I only added 2 cups of water. Place your pot over your stove and turn it on to a medium heat. My skin has been a bit dry lately so I added a cup of coconut milk for added moisture. After your soap flakes or chunks have dissolved, turn off your stove and let your mixture cool several hours. If you add water, heat it up and stir again. If you find your mixture is the right consistency and it's nice and cool, add it to your container! That's all there is to it!
