Faucet-Nose Stopper

by Christine G.

March 2006

Sage leaf is a wonderful faucet-nose stopper. I mix 1/4 teaspoon of powdered Sage leaf with a bit of honey and give it to my toddler with excellent results. Usually 2 or 3 times a day keeps him 24 hours without a green, gloppy nose during a cold or bug.

Thank you for your site! I plan to order very soon. I'm still in the process of experimenting with what works well with our family. Sage leaf has won hands down so far :-)

Hi. I just received my shipment of Shoshanna's salve and some tea. I am so happy with them. Thank you so much for the articles in the magazine on how to cook wild greens and plants. I ordered the book on how to recognize edible plants. Please keep all this natural wisdom coming. Thank you again, Elaine


Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
