Recipe for feeling better

I woke up this morning feeling not-so-great. I had a sinus headache, and felt tired an achy despite a good night’s sleep. I decided that I was officially under the weather (sort of inbetween being sick and being well), and decided the best course of action was 2 aspirin, a sinus rinse with my neti pot, and a hot herbal/epsom salt bath.
I like to use a lot of epsom salts in my bath–at least 2 cups. Epsom salts are magnesium sulfate, and they help your muscles relax (magnesium helps the muscles relax, and calcium helps them contract). I also took 2 large handfuls of one of my herbal mixtures, and boiled them for about 5 minutes. As an herbalist, I have bags of herbs around my house, so it’s easy for me to whip up an herbal bath or facial steam (this bath used a blend of jasmine, chamomile, rose, spearmint, passionflower, lavendar and comfrey), but you can use tea bags to make an herbal bath–try 3-4 bags each of chamomile and mint.
I’m happy to report that I’m feeling much better, and ready for my work day!

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A handful
    of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  2. each time i used to read smaller posts which
    as well clear their motive, and that is also happening
    with this article which I am reading at this place.

  5. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  8. I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back in the future. All the best

  9. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  10. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I ave been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

  11. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website. It appears as if some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks
