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 :-)

I have been ordering bulk herbs from the Bulk Herb Store for several years, and I have really enjoyed everything. I will now be adding Jasmine Green Tea to my orders.

Gratefully,

Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
