Making Homegrown Medicinals

Preparedness – Homegrown Medicinals

Homegrown Medicinals @ Common Sense Homesteading

While I’m out working in the garden, I’m not just tending standard food crops, I’m also tending herbs and “weeds”.  Some I use for culinary purposes, some for medicinal, some for both.  (Don’t you love it when you can get multiple uses from one item?)  With many medicinal herbs now being outlawed in Europe, and increasing odds that the US is likely to follow Europe’s lead (thank you, Big Pharma), I’ve been learning more about plants that I can grow in my own yard for medicinal purposes.  You’d be surprised at how useful “weeds” can be.

I dry an assortment of plants over the course of the season.  Most of them live in my pantry in glass jars covered with my husband’s old mismatched dress socks to keep out the light.  I cut each sock in half so it can cover two jars.  The socks are elasticized so they grip the jars nicely.  I always hated throwing one sock out when the other got worn through – now I have a use for them.  The food in front of them is kept in bins that can be easily pulled out to access the herbs.  You can see part of a bin on the right hand side of the photo.

11 Simple Remedies to Get Rid of Blackheads

11 Simple Remedies to Get Rid of Blackheads

After doing the list on home remedies for acne, we started getting a lot of questions about blackheads in particular. Common and annoying, blackheads occur when your pores become clogged with excess sebum (an oil created by the sebaceous glands that keeps skin supple) and dead skin cells. The difference between a black head and a white head is simply whether or not the pore is open or closed. If the pore is open, the plug of sebum/skin cells oxidizes as it is in contact with the oxygen in the air, which turns it black. Blackheads are not caused by dirt. Let’s make that clear from the beginning. Scrubbing your face obsessively is not a good way to get rid of your blackheads, and is only going to make it worse as you’ll just end up drying out your skin, which will cause more oil to be created to make up for everything you stripped away, and…well it’s a vicious cycle. For this reason, don’t use some of these remedies more than 2-3 times a week, such as the sugar scrub and pore strips. I know it can be hard to resist, but your skin will be better off this way.read more>>http://everydayroots.com/blackhead-remedies
