I just wanted to give a little advice for mouse irradication. We live in the city and have been getting mice in our house every winter for three years, now. Around 2-4 every winter season. May not be a lot to some, but they gross me out!
I have tried vinegar, and I tried tansy. Nothing seemed to keep these little monsters away. No search engines on the internet were of help, either. I was reading your article Vinegar of the Four Theives on your website and caught a glimpse of a nugget of truth. It stated that people used to burn rosemary to rid their house of vermin. I tried it in my basement and put some burnt crumbles in the bottom cupboards where they like to show themselves.
I am happy to say that in the cold, northwest Ohio area...in mid December...for the first time in three years...NO MICE! Even my husband was shocked! Plus, your house will have a very pleasant "campfire" like smell to it. Hope this may help someone else.

I love your website... Thank you for all your help. I love my herb books, and headed off an ear infection (my four year old) with a clove of garlic. Within 15 minutes, she was pain free whereas she had been holding her ear in horrible pain. Thanks again.
Did You Know?
Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
