Sage (Salvia officinalis)-
Good tonic for almost whole body.
Dill Weed (Anethum graveolens)-
Strong stomach aid. Great for digestion but take in smaller doses.

So many cosmetics out there are full of terrible chemicals that actually clog your pores and make acne worse. Try steaming your pores open with this blend, and finish with a rosewater astringent! Also great to do when suffering from a chest cold. Use equal parts eucalyptus, mullein, and peppermint.
Herbal Steam for the face
-1 part lavender
-2 parts rosepetals
-1/2 part peppermint
-2 parts comfrey
-2 parts calendula
YOU WILL NEED:
- A big bowl/pan
-A thick towel (or two!)

Mom: “You’re going to make me a nice card, Martin is going to bring me a bag of tacos, and you’re all going to leave me alone.”
Happy Mother’s Day ya’ll!
