Environmental toxin exposure

Do you know:
We are exposed to a multitude of toxic chemicals every day in our homes, environments and foods and these may affect fertility for men and women and impact the health of our children.
For example: Many pesticides and biocides contain high levels of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
In South Africa (and many other parts of the world), glyphosate usage in agriculture is pervasive and this known endocrine disruptor is turning up everywhere, including in mothers breast-milk. It has been banned in some countries, but is still widely used and considered normal agricultural practice in S.A.

What you can do:
-Read your labels and become aware of what you are using in your home and consuming in your foods.
-Eat organic.
-Campaign for a ban on glyphosate.

EFT and mainstream medicine:

Interesting article on the need for a major paradigm shift in mainstream medicine to incorporate EFT and other bio-field therapies. It’s time to recognize that there is now ample evidence-both scientific and clinical, demonstrating the remarkable results being achieved in practice on wide-ranging conditions including PTSD; chronic pain; depression; anxiety and many more, using EFT.

A look at one of my favourite herbs: Melissa off.

Here’s an insight into one of my favorite herbs: Melissa officinalis, or Lemon Balm. It’s easy to grow and easy to use, tastes great and is really effective! As a powerful anti-viral it is also a great herb for winter colds and flu’s.

Melissa officinalis:
Native to southern Europe, lemon balm is a bushy perennial that can grow to two or three feet tall. Like other members of the mint family, it has square stems and opposite, branching leaves. The flowers, which appear in summer are small, inconspicuous, yellow to pinkish-white, and have the “lipped” look typical of the mint family. Unlike many members of the mint family, the plant’s roots are not invasive.

The leaves smell like lemon (Citrus limon, Rutaceae) when bruised or crushed, hence the plant’s common name. When fresh, they may be used in drinks and added to salads, soups, sauces, and vegetables. When dried, they may be used to flavor teas and added to sachets and potpourris. Lemon balm reportedly is one of the few sour-tasting mints.

In his Historia Plantarum, the Greek philosopher and botanist Theophrastus of Eresus (372-287 BCE) provided one of the first known descriptions of the plant. It is thought that the idea of “Carmelite Water,” or Eau de Carmélite, an alcoholic extract of lemon balm and other herbs, originated in about 1200 CE when Christian hermits living in caves on Mount Carmel in present-day Israel realized the benefits of lemon balm. It is also widely believed that the “balm” of Homer’s Odyssey and Shakespeare’s Merry Wives of Windsor refers to lemon balm. In addition, Thomas Jefferson reportedly cultivated the species at Monticello.

Traditional use:
Traditionally, lemon balm has been used to calm nervous disorders, alleviate insect bites, increase perspiration, and treat colds, gastrointestinal and sleep disorders (including insomnia), and fevers.

Scientific evidence:
Preparations of the plant have demonstrated antimicrobial, antioxidant, antispasmodic, antiviral, bacteriostatic, neuroprotective, pain-relieving, and sedative effects. The plant contains phenolic acids (primarily rosmarinic acid), flavonoids, and essential oil (with citronellal, neral, and geranial as the predominant compounds).

I use this herb often as a tincture or a tea for viral infections, and as a sedating nervous system herb, great for insomnia, depression, anxiety, etc.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into Melissa!

Natural anti-bacterial hand cleanser for earth friendly hand cleaning

With the current stringent water restrictions in Cape Town, many people are reducing the number of times they wash their hands each day in an effort to save water. While it is necessary to save water, not properly cleaning our hands after using the bathroom, or before preparing and eating food, can increase our risk of infection-especially in the hot weather!
Some people have switched from hand-washing to using wet-wipes to clean their hands. While this will save water, imagine the huge extra burden these one-use discarded wet-wipes will have on waste disposal and our beautiful earth!
So I have an alternative solution for you: It is budget friendly and easy to make; completely natural, kind to our bodies and the environment and perhaps most importantly: really effective at cleaning and sanitizing our hands!

The lavender and tea-tree oils are anti-bacterial and the thyme is anti-fungal and anti-viral. The apple cider is a good medium for dissolving the essential oils and also will keep the skins PH balance- so no drying out the skin!

You will need:
1 x 250ml plastic spray bottle (available at any plastic shop)
20ml apple cider vinegar (organic if possible)
essential oils: tea-tree, lavender, thyme
230ml filtered/spring water

NOTE: Undiluted essential oils are super-concentrated and VERY strong. They can burn the skin. Always ensure you adequately dilute the oils and only use the recommended amount of drops.

Pour 20ml apple cider vinegar into the plastic bottle.
Carefully add: 10 drops lavender oil; 8 drops tea-tree oil; 4 drops thyme oil into the vinegar.
Shake well.
Top up the bottle with the water. Shake and spray!

This spray is also effective as a bathroom sanitizer.
You may notice the essential oils may settle out to the top on standing. Shake before use.

I hope you enjoy this simple, effective and easy to make hand cleaner.
