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 came across your ad in Mary Jane's Farm recently, and thought I'd check out your website. I was very happy to see that your values mirror my own. It was wonderful to see that you support Christian missions.
I was also impressed with your prices, but honestly thought perhaps the quality would not be as good.
I have to say, I was more than pleasantly surprised. First of all, I ordered late Monday evening, and received it on Thursday! However, what impressed me the most were the lavender flowers. I don't care for lavender--at least until now. The flowers were so fragrant that I could smell them before I picked up the box off my front step. Once I brought them in, my whole house was filled with such a wonderful aroma. Unbelievably, I could still smell the lavender even a couple of hours after I'd put them away. I have ordered lavender from other suppliers, and was not impressed. I am with yours, though.
In this age of inferior products and poor customer service, it is refreshing to do business with a company such as yours. You have definitely won a loyal customer. I am on quite a few herbal and soapmaking lists, and I will definitely be recommending your company.

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.
