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.

I just wanted to say thank you for the Peppermint tea. I had it sent to my sister-in-law who is expecting her 4th child, and experiencing morning sickness. She said that it tastes great, and that it has helped her. Thank you again.

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.
