LAVENDER TONER

Lavender is great for the skin. It used to be used in burn wards because it
aided the healing process and helped to lessen the scaring. Here’s a recipe
you can use to make your own toner without all the additional chemicals and
alcohol.

5 T. Distilled Water
5 T. Lemon Juice (juice a fresh lemon and strain it)
5 T. Witch Hazel (get the kind without alcohol)
4 drops Lavender Oil

Mix together in a measuring cup that you can pour from into an empty bottle
you’ve saved “to reuse one day.” Be sure to shake before using to disperse
the oil. Makes almost a cup.

PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM EPIDEMICS

Epidemics of parasitic infection from contaminated water and
of bacterial food poisoning from chicken or hamburger serve
notice that the U.S. food and water supply is not safe,
according to Leo Galland, M.D. Pesticides and preservatives
provide no protection from the current crop of microbes and
pose health hazards of their own. In the column “Eating
Safely in a Polluted World: You Don’t Have to Choose Between
Microbes and Chemicals!” Dr. Galland offers several simple,
effective measures you can follow to protect yourself and
those you love from the effects of eating contaminated food
and water–avoiding both microbial and chemical contaminants
in food and drink and building resistance to them if you are
exposed.

DELICIOUS LIQUID CALCIUM!

“I was excited about the assimilation factor of using liquid calcium, but
didn’t have much hope of continual use for myself. I’m so fussy about
taste. I was surprised to find that the taste is delicious! I actually
crave the stuff and since I take my calcium at bedtime for better sleep, I
have to wait all day to take it. I’m amazed that calcium can taste so good!
Although it’s passion fruit and mango flavored, I seem to taste raspberry in
there also.” Donna

COMBINATION POTASSIUM

This combination helps with water retention, is very beneficial in an acid
condition of the stomach, aids in getting rid of insomnia when used along
with an herbal calcium combination, and helps prevent germs from
accumulating in the tissues. It strengthens the heart to help prevent heart
attacks. It promotes healing in injuries. It builds resistance to
infections.

Nature’s Sunshine Combination Potassium has an herbal base that balances and
enhances the electrolyte functioning in the body. In addition to the 42 mg.
of elemental potassium, this combination has kelp, alfalfa, dulse, white
cabbage, horseradish, and horsetail. These herbs are an additional source of
potassium and do so much more for the body. Summer is a time when people get
tired and a little dizzy because they get low on potassium from the heat. Be
sure to have some on hand, especially if you’ve got somebody elderly with
heart or kidney problems. Kids that are into sports teams generally need a
little extra help also.
