I loved this post! I have suffered from insomnia since forever, and I have slowly learnt to live with it. It really helps me to listen to certain pleasant music, I even created a list in Spotify, and now my brain relates the music with sleeping, it really helps me. I also realized I happen to sleep better when I am together with my bf. Just to know that he is there, feeling with warm body and smell relaxes me, and I fall asleep faster. Even if I cannot fall asleep, his presence makes it easier to bear the insomnia :)

Does anyone know if the bigger shrubby st john work as well? It doevnt have the red bleeding thru the flowers like the smaller st john does ..?

In agreement with previous comments, before recommending tinctures It is important that you do research, and take some responsibility by giving warning to your readers about possible complications and side effects. Although SJW is a relatively safe herb and effective for mild to moderate depression, it can also interfere with birth control and other medication, and should NEVER be taken alongside any other prescription anxiolytics, antidepressants, or antipsychotics as it can block plasma systems and render those drugs ineffective. Furthermore it has also been shown to trigger psychoses in vulnerable individuals on or off medication... So yea, herbs should be taken with the same seriousness of other drugs and the effects of SJW are well worth a little more of a warning than just the ol' "consult your doctor first."

I love this blog but you guys are so blatantly disrespectful with cultural appropriation and never bother to at least acknowledge the cultures that this stuff comes from. On top of that these hair extensions are awful and not appealing to the eye. I wish you guys would show more diversity in your women. This blog becomes so shockingly Aryan sometimes despite the obvious fact that "Free People" aesthetic is literally people of color cultures throughout the world.
Melissa -Jul 14, 2014, 2:57PM
Saying women not from a specific culture shoudn't have dreads is like saying women with curly can't have straight hair! Who cares? Wear your hair how you want. If it's not being done in a mocking or mean way why are you guys getting upset about it. That's the same as saying a woman shouldn't have a shaved head or a pixie cut because typically men do!! THIS ISN'T THE 50'S.

Nothing wrong with using a natural toothpaste but the comments about fluoride pertain to high amounts and not the levels you are exposed to in toothpaste, etc. The dose makes the poison. Anything in a natural toothpaste will also have nasty side effects at high enough amounts. Again, it all depends on dosage and exposure.

We hear it all the time, or we say it ourselves: “Does anyone have an Advil?” It seems that headaches plague too many of us these days. Late nights, computer screens, stress, a stuffy nose – they are all factors that can contribute, but taking a processed remedy isn’t necessarily the best way to deal with it. All around us, nature grows healing herbs that can help alleviate the pain. Read more »

This is awesome! I am impressed by the size of aloe you are holding on that picture! In England i haven't come through such a big aloe or aloe vera leaves sale at all...I'm well jealous! When my aloe grows a little more i shall definitely make this...thanks :P
Briena -Jun 12, 2014, 9:54PM
This is the best! Super excited to try making these. Something I just learned also... if you don't have aloe handy, try wetting a rag and sprinkling it with a heavy dose of baking soda. Put that straight onto the burn. Somehow it helps soak up some of the heat and really helps to reduce the sting. http://seniorpictures.sashphotography.com

This deodorant is awesome and smells great! Quick question: is it supposed to be more liquidy or creamy? My mixture was at a smooth consistency but then melted in the jar later on.
Sabrina -Jul 12, 2014, 11:31PM
Made it two days ago and it's super effective!!! Although, even tho I followed the recipe, it came out too liquidy, so I added a ton more baking soda and arrowroot flour. No natural deodorant was strong enough for me, but this did the trick. I used lavender essential oil. Happy. Thanks so much!
