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."

Dreads are not limited to certain cultures. Period. Yes, they are linked to specific cultures, but that doesn't mean they are exclusive to them. I've seen people of all sorts of ethnicities, backgrounds, lifestyles with real dreadlocks. Are they being disrepectful? It's a hairstyle. No different than braiding your hair. Furthermore, I can guarantee most people will have an article of clothing or accessory that they already own that has been inspired by another culture, lifestyle, etc. that you may not even be aware of. That is what fashion often pulls from; It's not as though Free People is alone in that. Instead of taking offense to such things we should embrace the idea of exploring other cultures and being your own person. This is not a disrespectful product at all.

Free People...so sad...I worked for Free People and when I started I had a headful of long natural dreads. Guess what I was told??? That it wasn't brand appropriate. Well, leave it to Free People to get behind it now that dreads are trendy and cool. Free People sells an image, nothing more. It's sad, but it's the truth. I love the clothes just as much as the next person, but remember what you're buying into next time you purchase their overpriced product.

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.

Post image for Aromatherapy Headache Cure

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.
