A salve is simply a healing ointment for the skin, usually a base of beeswax and oil. As you make your salves and work with the recipes, keep in mind that the beeswax will make the salve more solid, while a higher percentage of oil will make it softer. These organic herbal remedies make great gifts, as well as being part of a well stocked medicine cabinet.
Natural hair dye recipes. Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT use hennah! Even though it's natural, the chemical reaction with that and any professional hair color you use in the future can and will melt your hair off. SAVE YOURSELF!
Natural Sun Streaking - Mix the juice of 1 lemon with 2 tablespoons strong chamomile tea. Buy chamomile tea. Using an inexpensive straw hat with lots of holes in it, pull strands of hair through the holes. (A crochet hook or pencil is good for this.) Apply the lemon/chamomile mixture to the exposed hair. Sit in the sun for 2 hours - you'll end up with natural-looking streaking. Don't forget sunscreen! (Good book, glass of wine...)
