Scent to help you sleep!

I've had a really hard time sleeping lately, despite rigorous consistent exercise. Sandalwood oil helps. The pure essential oil only: pricey, but you only need a drop. It works wonders. Dab on your pillow, a tissue, even a drop under your nose. Not for PTSD symptoms, but good for ordinary stresses

Sore Throat Remedy

I hate a sore throat. You know the kind where you can't even swallow? Well I found a remedy that is both remarkably dependable and remarkably gross! Take about a cup of lukewarm water and add a tablespoon of cayenne pepper. Mix with spoon. Then gargle with it every 15 minutes.

Filling up on food, without filling up on calories

I take plenty of salad and fruit to work for lunch and fill up on this. It gives me energy during the day and doesnt fill me up too long and keep my sluggish. By the time my evening meal comes I can eat a nice portion and still feel full, without over eating.
