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 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 purchased quite a few herbal books recommended by BHS before heading over here and many of them have been very helpful. Many of the Filipinos are fond of using herbs up here on the mountains and even grow some in their gardens. I lent a friend three herbal books- Practical Herbalism, Growing 101 Herbs That Heal and The How-To Herb Book. She was so happy to see pictures of the herbs she has in her own garden and that she can finally label each one and learn of its advantage and hopefully put it to proper use. Mountains of thanks to BHS! In Christ, Grace


Did You Know?


The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
