Some of you like new places to visit, so here are four:

Mimi left me a note for my stuffed nose (I haven’t tried this yet, but I’ve got sage growing outside my kitchen):

For your stuffed nose, try making a steam tent out of a towel and a bowl of steaming sage tea. About 1 Tblsp. of sage to 2 cups of boiling water. Simmer the sage for 10 minutes and bring it to a table. Lean over the pot or bowl with the hot sage tea in it. Drape a towel over your head and the bowl. Try to stay in for 5 minutes. Your stuffed nose will start clearing up right away.

And FYI, the homeopathic remedy that my father bought for me from our local chiropractor Dr. Harry Schick (I highly recommend him, especially for allergies) is called “Flu Immune”, by Net Remedies©. It’s either a coincidence, or it worked, because I’m breathing a lot better tonight.

Great links! I'll have fun checking them out!

Ilana-Davita says

Thanks for the new links. There is only one problem: more links means more time to check them; where will I find this?

Leora says

Frumhouse, hope you find something fun.
Ilana-Davita, next summer?

Michelle says

You are ill Leora..I am sorry to hear that but interested in what you used..I will have to look for that..I am always interested in hearing about alternatives

Leora says

Michelle, it's just a little stuffed nose. I feel better during the day, but at night it hasn't completely gone away. I'm exploring alternative health in general (more because of my mother's illness than because I got a bad case of the sniffles the last two weeks).

I'm going to look for others to talk to about alternative health; it seems to be a nice compliment to art, photography and nature on this blog (wish I had more nature...mostly just the plants and sky on my block!).
