Sinus Relief – Tomato Shots

I have suffered from sinus trouble often until I ran across what my daughter named Tomato Shots. At the first sign that my sinuses are beginning to bother me I use the following recipe for 3 days, before breakfast. So far, it has worked every time.

TOMATO SHOTS

  • 1/8 cup tomato juice (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix together and drink once a day for three days before eating breakfast.
Helps with respiratory problems, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinus infection, etc.

*Note: I advise having a glass of water ready to drink before taking a tomato shot. I personally do not like the taste of the shots and drink water immediately after a shot to dilute the strong pepper taste.

Buttermilk Fennel Facial Cleanse – Oily Skin

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tbsp crushed fennel seeds

Put the buttermilk and fennel seeds in a double boiler and cook gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and let sit for 2 to 3 hours.
Pour liquid through a fine sieve or a colander or strainer covered with cheesecloth.
Allow to cool completely then fill a glass or plastic container and seal tightly.
Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Cranberry Almond Lip Balm

  • 10 fresh cranberries
  • 1 Tbsp sweet almond oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 drop of Vitamin E oil*

Put all the ingredients in a glass bowl inside a saucepan of water.
Put saucepan over a medium low burner.
Bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, stir, and crush berries with a fork.
Let cool for five minutes, then pour through a fine sieve over a clean bowl to strain. You may also use cheesecloth if you have it. Lay the cheesecloth in a strainer or colander.
You want to be sure all the fruit pieces are removed and only the thick liquid is in the clean bowl.
Cool completely then put in small plastic containers with lid.

* Note: If you don’t want to buy a whole bottle of Vitamin E oil, you can use a Vitamin E capsule and just poke a whole in it with a clean needle and squeeze out a drop.

Cleansing Soothing Baby Wipes

  • 1/2 cup light olive oil
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup gentle baby shampoo
  • 1 roll paper towels cut in half
  • 2 empty baby wipes containers, plastic coffee cans, or other containers that fit the halved paper towels

Mix olive oil, water, and baby shampoo.
Remove the cardboard center from both halves of paper towels.
Place halves of paper towels in 2 separate containers.
Pour 1/2 of mixture into each container, cover shake gently.
Pull sheet from the center of the paper towel roll and poke through the hole in top of baby wipe container; or cut hole in lid of plastic coffee can. Use just like regular store-bought wipes.

I don’t recommend a metal coffee can just to avoid any corrosion that might occur.

Oatmeal Kiddy Bath

  • 1 cup plain oatmeal
  • bath water

Put oatmeal in food processor and grind until oatmeal turns into a fine powder texture.

To use simply sprinkle into the running bath water and swish vigorously to mix well.  This powder will dissolve fairly well in the bath water and leaves baby’s skin silky smooth and soothed.

Use to relieve diaper rash, heat rash, or any irritation. Also good for older children and adults to relieve poison ivy, chicken pox, or even simple dry skin.

Inexpensive Body Butter – Old Fashioned Homemade Luxury

I have extremely sensitive skin and one of the things my dermatologist recommended was to use Crisco for a moisturizer. My initial reaction was NO WAY!

In the past year we’ve hit hard times, so I decided to see just how crazy it was.

I put a big dollop into a plastic container and whipped it with some lavender essential oils. I LOVE THIS STUFF! If I didn’t know better I’d think it was a pricey good smelling body butter. Try it! It’s a little greasy, but hey, it’s grease. It moisturizes so well.
