Re: Prim rose oil capsules to bring on labor ?!?!?

And I am a proud, proud grandma - without the prim rose oil.

And no, it doesn't sound very healthy for a bunch of young mothers to be to be taking large quantities of anything simply because they heard about it on facebook.

Prim rose oil capsules to bring on labor ?!?!?

Apparently, it's the new thing with the 20ish crowd to induce labor at home with large quantities of prim rose oil capsules. All the girls swear by it.

Has anyone heard of this before?

I wonder about it's safety.

Re: Ideas for making Nettle infusions taste better.

I've been told by a few people that harvest their own that when they find a nice stand they take the top 3rd of the plant and continue to harvest all season. Something about the younger top growth doesn't have the time to form the crystals. I don't remember exactly.

Re: Ideas for making Nettle infusions taste better.

I put my lemon balm in a large pot because I didn't want it taking over. I had it in the back but it's a wooded, shaded property. I moved it up front into direct sun and she's much happier now and all those spindly spots are filling in. I'm not sure if I should bring it in in the winter. It doesn't ...

Re: Ideas for making Nettle infusions taste better.

If you try to grow your own lemon balm - it really does need full sun or it gets all leggy and spindly and sad. The other thing with nettle infusion is the quality. If it brews up a brilliant emerald green - you've got gold. If it brews up brown like regular tea - it's not a great quality and the fl...

Re: Relief for our new rescue dog

Shepards have a real thick under coat that they blow in spring and fall.

The itchy skin could be a skin allergy. Does benedryl or hydrocortizone cream help with the itch?

Re: Sick all the time!

See an Allergist/Immunologist and get a diagnosis. Those symtpoms fit a variety of different illnesses.

Keep your body well cared for. Nutritional support is essential when you'll ill for extended periods of time.

Re: Ideas for making Nettle infusions taste better.

And I can't gag it down with salt but 2 tablespoons of sugar (to a quart infusion) and I'm a happy camper. give it a few days. If you body needs what's in it - you'll start craving it and it'll taste better. If it doesn't - try an oatstraw infusion. It seems like people usually prefer one over the o...
