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've ordered from you before and have always received my order in a timely manner. The teas have been very tasty. I will be trying the Vinegar of the Four Thieves this spring. I have it all mixed up and ready to go. Thank you so much for all the information you include on your web site. I've been able to start using herbs right away. I received The How to Herb Book now so will be able to do even more. Thank you very much.

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.
