Sometimes our little ones get a boo boo, and the fear from their injury is far greater than the boo boo itself. For these times when your little precious one is crying hard but the boo boo is minor, have him/her help you make this easy recipe. It gets them involved in learning first aid, helps take their mind off the boo boo, and the lavender blend helps calm them and kill a few germs. Note: This recipe isn’t intended for serious cuts/scrapes or injuries.

Ingredients:

* 1 Cotton Ball
* Witch Hazel – enough to saturate the cotton ball
* 1-2 drops Lavender

Directions:

Depending on the age and abilities of your little one, have him/her help you by saturating a cotton ball with witch hazel. Then, apply one drop of lavender to the saturated cotton ball. Have your little one smell the “boo boo juice.” Since lavender helps bring calm, the aroma can be soothing. Then, apply the boo boo juice to the minor cut/scrape or allow your little one to take charge and do it. Apply a band aid if necessary.

Beautiful Hair, Oil Recipes »

* 7 oz. of unscented shampoo (many sellers of natural products and aromatherapy products sell unscented shampoo, shower gel and lotion)
* 1 tablespoon jojoba (optional, but can supply the hair with added nutrition)
* 20 drops Patchouli
* 20 drops Sandalwood
* 5 drops Ylang Ylang

Directions: Add the essential oils to the bottle of unscented shampoo (you may wish to either use the unscented shampoo once to make more room in the bottle for the oils or discard a little bit) and mix extremely well.

You do not want to have pockets in the shampoo where the oils collect as the concentration of essential oils could cause scalp irritation and also because your shampoo will not be fragranced thoroughly. Use as you would your normal shampoo.

Beautiful Hair, Oil Recipes »

Hair growth. A subject that is near and dear to the hearts of many. If you’ve never been one with fine hair or watched your once thick tresses dwindle in number you may never understand the feelings of dread and frustration that can accompany the loss of your hair.

Growing up my mom always told me “A woman’s hair is her shining glory” and it’s stuck with me all these years. She was just trying to get me past that pre- teen “I-don’t-need-to-wash-my-hair-it’s-only-been- a-week-or-so” phase but even now, all these years later it’s something that rings in my ears each time I break out the shampoo (thankfully, it’s now more than once a week!).

While bald can certainly be beautiful, not all of us are ready, willing nor do we want to show off our shiny pates! For those of us who are desperately clinging to the hairs we still have left on our heads and would like to encourage more to stick around for a longer period of time, this month’s recipes have been created.

Dull a tension headache by massaging a few drops of peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita) into your temples. Peppermint works as well as 1,000 mg of acetaminophen, the main ingredient in aspirin, according to one German study.

Herb experts don’t know exactly how it works, but the peppermint appears to prevent your body from sending pain signals to your central nervous system.
