Itchy Chigger Bites Bathed Away!

by Esther

August 2008

One day, after being out in tall grass, I discovered that I had chigger bites all over my legs and lower back. Itchy chigger bites get old fast! On that fateful day, I discovered how to pamper away the itchiness. I discovered that a nice lavender bath took the itch out.

Here is the recipe, hope it helps:

To my bath, I added one handful of powdered lavender, one handful of sea salt, and one handful of epsom salt.

Just wanted to say thank you for this website. I've long thought herbs were fascinating, but never knew HOW to use them, or where to learn. All the books and speakers I'd come into contact with on the subject would give a long, glowing list of an herbs wonderful uses, but skip the "how to part." Your site is designed so beautifully, easy to navigate, and it provides so much useful information about what to do with all these wonderful herbs God gave us. It's given me the resources and confidence I needed to begin my journey using herbs for the health and healing of my family, and I'm so grateful.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
