DIY Vapor Rub

DIY Vapor Rub Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil
  • 2 TBSP beeswax pastilles (level, not heaping)
  • 20 drops of eucalyptus oil (use only 4 drops for use on babies and young children)
  • 20 drops peppermint oil (substitute 4 drops for essential oil for use on babies and small children)
  • 10 drops rosemary oil (omit for use on babies and small children)
  • 10 drops cinnamon or clove oil (optional – omit for use on babies or small children)
  • From wellnessmama

Connie’s comments:

If you want to remove warts, you can use few drops of Tea Tree essential oil.

If you want to avoid insect bugs, you can use few drops of lemon grass essential oil.

My favorite is lemon and eucalyptus essential oil combo.

Both Eucalyptus and peppermint has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

I would use fresh ginger or powder for arthritis. You may add turmeric, although this will add color to your bed sheets or clothing.

I will add Vitamin E oil as skin food.

DIY: Whiten your teeth with ___ by wellnessmama

I used Activated Charcoal a few months ago when I had an awful bout of food poisoning, and it worked wonders! This is actually the substance that many hospitals have on hand and use when patients have ingested toxins or when they pump patients’ stomachs. It is available as a loose powder and in capsule form (see notes below!)

Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent substance. It removes toxins when they adhere to the surface of the charcoal. It is not absorbed by the body, but passes through the GI system, so chemicals and toxins adhere to it, pass through the body and are expelled by the digestive system.

In the 1800s, two men took lethal doses of poisons (including arsenic) and survived without harm… their secret: they mixed the toxins with activated charcoal powder. (Stating the obvious: do not try to repeat these experiments!)

Activated charcoal is extremely effective at pulling toxins from household chemicals, ingested medicines, and other toxins from the body, especially when taken within 30 minutes of ingestion. For this reason, it is a great first treatment for any kind of poisoning, but should not be taken within several hours of medications (or even vitamins) that DO need to be absorbed.

There is even some evidence that activated charcoal is helpful both before and after alcohol consumption to lessen the amount that is absorbed by the body.

Even mainstream medical sites are on board with the benefits of using activated charcoal for a poison remedy.

Should you ever need to use activated charcoal on yourself of a child for poisoning, use as soon as possible and call a poison control center or go to the emergency room as well to make sure the poison has been fully removed!

I”ve personally used activated charcoal for food poisoning and it worked… I mixed 1-2 tablespoons of activated charcoal with water and drank quickly. The food poisoning went away within a couple of hours. Charcoal should not be taken regularly, as it can cause constipation and block mineral absorption if it is not needed. Also, it can’t be mixed with dairy products or many foods, as they lower its effectiveness. This dose can be repeated up to 3 times a day until symptoms of food poisoning or other poison are gone.

Important note: If you have to take charcoal, make sure to drink a lot of water as it can cause dehydration if taken in large doses!

Activated charcoal is also effective externally as a poultice on spider and insect bites. I tried this when my son was bitten by a brown recluse, and alternating poultices of activated charcoal, baking soda, and powdered plantain completely reversed the bite and he doesn’t even have a scar now.

Activated charcoal is also the stuff used in gas masks and water filters to remove toxins (Here is my favorite water filter).

But what does that have to do with teeth?
So, it’s all well and good that activated charcoal is an effective poison remedy… but you might be wondering why I brushed my teeth with it…

First, please excuse my weird smile in those pictures and the bad lighting in my bathroom… I was trying to show all of my teeth (I don’t usually smile like that! icon smile Best Way to Whiten Teeth Naturally ).

The times that I’d recommended charcoal for use in food poisoning or other digestive issues, I always cautioned people to mix with water and swallow quickly so that it wouldn’t stain their teeth. Then, a holistic dentist I know mentioned that it is very effective at whitening teeth… huh?

Since the powder stains everything, I had always worried that it would do the same to my teeth (one of my kids dumped it in the kitchen one time and it does stain tile, grout, clothes and shoes… just a note).

I did some research and found out that even though it temporarily makes the mouth look extremely black (see picture above!) it has the same effect as it does when ingested: it pulls toxins from the mouth and removes stains. (Fair warning: when you open your mouth, it is completely black and rather scary looking! Right after I did this the first time I was intensely worried that it would stain my teeth!)

To my surprise, all of the black washes away and it makes your teeth feel extremely clean and smooth. After a few uses, my teeth were noticeably whiter too (you can sort of tell in the picture above… the lighting didn’t do it justice!).

Further research I’ve done on this showed that activated charcoal can actually be helpful in changing the pH and health of the mouth, and as such is effective in preventing cavities and killing the bad bacteria present in tooth decay and gingivitis. For this reason, I now suggest and use it as part of my remineralizing protocol for teeth, along with my remineralizing toothpaste.

How to use on teeth: Dip a clean, wet toothbrush into the powdered charcoal (or dump a capsule of charcoal on the toothbrush). Lean over the container or charcoal and quickly put the charcoal covered toothbrush in the mouth (this is to protect your sink). Brush in small, gentle circles for 2 minutes, spit carefully and rinse really well. Your mouth will feel amazingly clean…. your sink, not so much! Use as often as needed.

Where to get Activated Charcoal:
Most natural health stores carry activated charcoal in loose powder or capsule form and it is also available online. I keep both the powdered and capsuled forms on hand in case it is needed for poisoning and I use the powdered in a small glass jar for tooth brushing. Make sure that the charcoal is from wood or coconut sources and not petroleum-based.

After using the activated charcoal for a few months and swishing with diluted regular 3% hydrogen peroxide when I remember (at the recommendation of a dentist) I am really happy with how white my teeth have gotten!

Top DIY recipes for 2013 by wellnessmama

I’m a big fan of homemade alternatives to conventional products. Most often, these homemade versions have fewer toxins, are less expensive and usually work better.

My DIY recipes seem most popular on Pinterest, and these were the most visited DIY posts of 2013:

1. Homemade Bug Spray Recipes That Work

These DIY bug spray recipes use essential oils in place of harmful chemicals and readers have tested them around the world with success. Ingredients:

Essential oils: choose from Citronella, Clove, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Cajeput, Eucalyptus, Cedar, Catnip, Lavender, Mint
Natural Witch Hazel
Distilled or boiled Water
Vegetable glycerin (optional)

2. Homemade Lotion Recipe

This lotion is much more nourishing than traditional lotions since it doesn’t contain any liquid, only oils. This means that it has a really long shelf life, doesn’t need any chemical preservatives and is great for skin. How to Make Lotion:

Combine ingredients in a pint sized or larger glass jar. I have a mason jar that I keep just for making lotions and lotion bars, or you can even reuse a glass jar from pickles, olives or other foods.
Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place over medium heat.
Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water.
As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars (8 ounce) are great for this. It will not pump well in a lotion pump!
Use as you would regular lotion. This has a longer shelf life than some homemade lotion recipes since all ingredients are already shelf stable and not water is added. Use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits.

3. Beating the B.O. With Natural Deo – Recipe

Most deodorants contain aluminum, chemicals and harmful ingredients. In fact, there is now some evidence linking some of these chemicals to breast cancer. In my opinion, they aren’t worth the risk- especially since homemade options work better!

4. How to Make Lotion Bars

Lotion bars are the best of both worlds. They are used on dry skin like lotion but in the convenience of a bar that spreads on to skin easily. There are many variations, but this original recipe is still my most popular:

5. How to Make Magnesium Oil

I always keep magnesium oil around the house. It helps kids sleep when rubbed on their feet before bedtime. It helped me avoid morning sickness in my last pregnancy and it is necessary for hundreds of reactions in the body. It is also much less expensive to make your own:

6. Homemade Remineralizing Toothpaste Recipe

This is the toothpaste I use daily. Ever since I reversed cavities with diet and this toothpaste, it is part of my daily routine along with oil pulling. It is pretty simple to make and once you invest in the ingredients, it is less expensive than most natural toothpastes.

7. Natural Sunscreen Recipe

We don’t use sunscreen often (here’s why) but when we do, I avoid the ones with chemicals and ingredients that have been linked to cancer (kinda defeats the purpose…). This homemade version is the most natural option I’ve found and it works really well.

8. Best Way to Whiten Teeth Naturally

This post gets the award for most rude commenters on Pinterest. Apparently, some people get really offended by the sight of dirty teeth or something. Anyway, this is also part of my oral care routine and it has whitened my teeth significantly (and made one calcification spot on my front tooth not visible at all anymore.

9. DIY Beach Waves Spray

I have a lot of hair, but it is baby fine and gets oily easily. For this reason, most commercial hair sprays and hair products weigh down my hair or make it look dirty. This texturizing spray is the solution for me. It costs a few pennies to make, is completely natural and leaves hair full and volumized (I think I just invented that word) without chemicals. The name comes from the fact that it contains natural salts like the beach and it gives your hair that naturally wavy just-been-to-the-beach look.
