CORN REMOVAL...Soak your feet in hot salty water. After drying, squeeze on a drop or two of the juice from the broken stem of a fresh celandine plant. Leave to dry. Repeat daily until corn is gone.

Never had a corn, but they sound painful, would like to share with you our insect repellant, will keep moths from clothes and silverfish from books (we have a huge collection of old books).

Dried thyme, lavender or rosemary.

With V-day around the corner you might be doing some kissing so better check the breath...

Drink up to 1/4 cup pure aloe vera gel dissolved in about half a cup of water or apple juice. Aloe vera contains an anti-inflammatory compound called B-sitosterol that soothes acid indigestion, a common cause of bad breath. But go easy; in large doses, aloe vera can work like a laxative.

Tip for dry tired eyes
Infuse a bag of organic chamomile tea in 4 to 6 ounces hot water, cool in the fridge for at least 20 minutes, and then apply as a compress on eyes for 10 minutes, until the bag comes to room temperature. Chamomile has a mild anti-inflammatory effect.

Farting / flatulence

Sip 1 cup hot water steeped with 1 teaspoon caraway seeds, which stifle the enzymatic action that causes gas.

Here is a tip for pearly whites:

Combine 1/2 teaspoon baking soda with 1 or 2 drops of peroxide. Brush on, let sit for a few minutes, then rinse (don’t swallow) and ta-da—enjoy your once-again pearly whites.


Baking soda serves as a safe, light bleach. A baking soda and salt mixture can also restore the shine of dingy teeth (dip a wet toothbrush into 1/4 teaspoon soda and sprinkle with up to 1/8 teaspoon salt) as effectively as it polishes your pots and pans. However, the peroxide recipe is safer for people on no-salt diets.
