When I was a little girl I used to pick the leaves from weeds to make play salads for my parents. What I didn’t realize then was that those leaves I picked were actually edible! It wasn’t until many years later, long after I stopped making dirt pots and grass dolls, that I discovered that the weed I was so fond of, was actually an herb. That herb was plantain.

Plantain is a common broad-leaf herb commonly mistaken for a weed. This healthy, hardy plant can be found in backyards across North America and is nutritionally similar to dandelion leaves. Used medicinally by cultures around the world, plantain is a common herbal home remedy for both nutritional and topical skin care applications.

What is Plantain?

Plantain is a common broad-leaf herb commonly mistaken for a weed. This healthy, hardy plant can be found in backyards across North America and is nutritionally similar to dandelion leaves. Used medicinally by cultures around the world, plantain is a common herbal home remedy for both nutritional and topical skin care applications.

Nutritional Benefits of Plantain

Plantain leaves are best consumed while still young and tender. They have a nutty asparagus like taste that is delicious when pan fried or when added to salads. A naturally healthy herb, plantain leaves offer the following nutritional support (source):

  • Maintains healthy cholesterol levels
  • Can offer relief from irritable bowel syndrome
  • Calms irritation from constipation or diarrhea
  • Offers relief from hemorrhoids
  • Helps with indigestion and ulcers
  • Supports healthy kidneys and bladder function

You don’t have to eat plantain leaves to enjoy their nutritional benefits, however. You can also get herbal support through tinctures for cleansing & detox. Or enjoy a natural herbal tea made using organic dried plantain leaves.

Plantain Infused Olive Oil! Plantains have anti-inflammatory,analgesic and anti-microbial properties. Because of this the plant is well suited at soothing insect bites and superficial wounds in addition to promoting healing. It also contains allantoin which is used to help with skin regeneration making it an excellent component in formulations created to help reduce the appearance of scars.

Skin Care Benefits of Plantain

In addition to nutritional support, plantain leaves are also lovely when infused in a carrier oil for topical skin care applications. There are a number of natural skin care products that would benefit from the inclusion of plantain herbal oil. These products include after sun moisturizers, burn relief balms, creams or lotions for eczema or dry skin, and anti-itch salves for insect and spider bites.

Dr. Christopher’s Stings and Bites, for example, is a top selling plantain ointment. It’s crafted with natural herb constituents like plantain leaf, extra virgin olive oil and beeswax to reduce and relieve the pain, swelling and itching caused by insect stings and bites.

Due to plantain’s herbal skin care properties, it’s often used as a key ingredient for the following topical skin care applications to promote skin health:

  • Minor burns and sunburns
  • Minor cuts, scratches and lesions
  • Rashes and skin inflammation
  • Psoriasis and eczema
  • Dry or chapped skin or lips

Formulating An Herbal Plantain Salve Recipe

Mountain Rose Herbs has a new roasted cocoa butter available that I really wanted to try. So I was really pleased when it arrived at my doorstep last week. This stuff smells amazing. I love that it’s suited for both food and cosmetic use.

As it smells so wonderful, however, I really wanted to create a product that would highlight the natural scent of the roasted cocoa butter. I also knew I wanted something to create a natural skin care product that would be suitable for seasonal skin care and gift giving. Therefore, in the end, I opted for crafting a simple plantain salve recipe with a cocoa mint scent.

I love the simplicity of my natural plantain salve recipe. It’s formulated using just five simple ingredients – roasted cocoa butter, plantain herbal oil, beeswax, rosehip seed oil and peppermint essential oil. The cocoa mint scent, of course, is naturally derived from the inclusion of the organic peppermint essential oil and roasted cocoa butter.

Roasted Cocoa Butter

The roasted cocoa butter wafers from Mountain Rose Herbs aren’t deodorized. Therefore they retain their natural cocoa scent. Expeller pressed from the roasted seeds of the cocoa tree, these cocoa butter wafers are naturally rich in vitamin E. They can be combined with cocoa powder to make chocolate, but also make a nice addition to recipes for lip balms, body butters, homemade soaps and salves.

Plantain Herbal Oil

While plantain herbal oil is easy to make, you can also enjoy the convenience of buying pre-made plantain herbal oil. This is especially helpful if you’re wanting to make natural skin care products using plantain herbal oil right away. Or if plantain is out of season throughout the cold winter months.

I used plantain herbal oil from Mountain Rose Herbs for my simple plantain salve recipe. An emollient oil formulated using solar infused plantain olive oil and vitamin E, this herbal plantain oil is especially nourishing for dry hands and skin. Crafted with certified organic Plantago major leaves, this natural herbal oil is perfect for gardeners, wild harvesters, climbers – or anyone else who works with their hands frequently. I also like to use this herbal oil, as is, on my dog’s minor cuts and irritation for a simple and safe natural remedy for his skin.

Rosehip Seed Oil

As I have both maturing skin, as well as skin that tends to dry out more in the winter, I also used rosehip seed oil for my plantain salve recipe. While this may shorten the shelf life of your salve somewhat, I highly recommend this unique carrier oil for its essential fatty acids. Popular in natural anti-aging skin care recipes, rosehip seed oil offers marvelous hydration for dry skin and a quick absorption rate. It can also be used solo as a natural daily facial cleanser or hydrating oil.

Beeswax

A key ingredient in homemade salve recipes, beeswax gives this plantain salve recipe its thick, rich texture. It also acts as a natural skin protectant while still allowing skin to breathe. In addition to its skin protectant properties, beeswax is also a humectant (meaning it attracts water to hydrate skin) and helps to temporarily reduce and soothe itching.

The beeswax pastilles from Mountain Rose Herbs have a deep, golden color and aroma. Globally sourced from less-developed countries like South America and Africa, their beeswax helps sustain the local economy of these areas while using traditional (less-modern) processing techniques.

Peppermint Essential Oil

A sweet, candy-like scented peppermint, the organic peppermint oil from Mountain Rose Herbs helps bump my simple plantain salve recipe into peppermint patty like status. This naturally steam distilled, certified organic essential oil has a fresh, very minty, hot, herbaceous fragrance with a vegetative back note. Perfect for all types of recipes including cleaning sprays, perfumes, aroma mists and natural skin care, this is a truly aromatic essential oil.

Peppermint essential oils is commonly included in natural skincare recipes and homemade salves and balms for topical pain relief, its anti-itch properties and the cooling sensation. It also supports circulation and can calm acne inflammation.

Simple Plantain Salve Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1 oz. roasted cocoa butter
1 oz. plantain herbal oil
1 oz. beeswax
.5 oz. rosehip seed oil
20 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my plantain salve recipe. In addition you’ll also need a one or two cup heat safe glass measuring cup (such as Pyrex) and a utensil to stir your salve. I typically use a fork. You’ll also need containers for your plantain herbal salve. I used 1 oz. metal tins with rolled edge covers.

Once you’ve gathered the ingredients and supplies you’ll need, you’re ready to begin.

Start by weighing out the roasted cocoa butter wafers and beeswax. Combine in a heat safe glass container. Then heat either on the stove top using the double boiler method or in your microwave at 30% power until halfway melted.

Next, weigh out the rosehip seed oil and the plantain herbal oil. Add these ingredients to the same container as the cocoa butter and beeswax. Continue gently heating the ingredients until all of the ingredients for the plantain salve recipe have completely melted.

Once melted, remove the plantain salve mixture from heat and stir to combine. Then stir in 20 drops of organic peppermint essential oils.

Now pour your plantain herbal salve evenly into five 1 oz. tins. Allow the salve to cool completely then pop on the lids and it’s ready to go.

To use, simply apply to affected area as desired and massage in. You can also keep my plantain salve tucked inside your purse to use a natural cocoa mint lip balm throughout the year.

If desired, you can decorate the lids of your tins. I used nature stickers from Art By Sharell to decorate the lids of my plantain salve containers. However, washi tape also makes a fun addition and makes a simple, yet pretty package decorating idea.

Should you wish to sell the products you make from my plantain salve recipe, there is important information that you need to know if you live in the United States. Not only do you need to follow all FDA guidelines for labeling your products, you’ll also need to refrain from making any medical claims in regards to said product. It can all be very confusing. However, Marie Gale has a great book, titled Soap and Cosmetic Labeling, that can help steer you in the right direction.

Amazon Black Salve Recipe with Bacuri Butter, Buriti Oil & Volcanic Black Clay

This post is sponsored by Paris Fragrances. All opinions are my own.

Are you curious about some of the products found within the Amazon Rainforest? Keep reading to discover the natural skin care benefits of bacuri butter, black clay and buriti oil. Sourced from the Brazilian Amazon Forest, learn how you can use these natural ingredients to create your own natural Amazon black salve recipe.

Amazon black drawing salve DIY. This natural holistic Amazon black salve recipe offers an exciting twist off traditional Amish black drawing salves. Crafted using bacuri butter, commonly used as by local natives as a natural remedy for snake and spider bites, this natural ingredient from the Brazilian Amazon Forest plays a key role in drawing out matter from insect bites, stings, boils and even acne.

If you really take the time to consider how much medicine has changed since our grandparents and great grandparents were children, you’ll see a huge shift. We’ve moved from treating illnesses with nutrition and natural remedies to synthetic drugs developed in labs. One only needs to listen to the grocery list of side effects on drug commercials to begin to question, are these treatments really better for us?

When I was a kid, black salve would remedy a boil. Iodine would heal a wound. We fought colds with fire cider and whiskey. In short, we worked with what nature gave us. While medical advances such as anesthesia have led to many improvements in patient care, it’s important to develop a healthy balance between the two.

Natural Skin Care Ingredients from The Brazilian Amazon Forest

Recently, Paris Fragrances has facilitated my discovery of many beneficial skin care ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon Forest. Sustainably harvested for the fruits and other plant materials that grow there, the Brazilian Amazon Forest’s rich biodiversity is home to a number of indigenous remedies and medicinal plants.

Home to products such as Brazilian nut oil, bacuri butter, tucuma butter and cocoa butter that are native to the Brazilian Amazon Forest, these ingredients make wonderful additions to natural skin care products and home remedies. Further, as the commercial sale of these ingredients produces more income for those who reside in the region than both non-sustainable timber and cattle pasture combined, their use supports keeping the Amazon Rainforest intact.

I love shopping for these specialty ingredients from Paris Fragrances. Not only are the prices and quality of their products amazing, but they carry natural ingredients I can’t find elsewhere. I’ve also really enjoyed learning about so many new ingredients. However, coming up with new ways to use these sustainable products in my natural skin care recipes has definitely been the most rewarding part.

About My Amazon Black Drawing Salve Recipe

My Amazon black salve recipe offers an exciting twist off the traditional Amish black drawing salves. It’s similar to an Amish black drawing salve in that it contains activated charcoal. However, it also contains three ingredients found specifically in Brazil. These ingredients are volcanic black clay, buriti oil and bacuri butter.

Bacuri butter, which has been historically used by Brazilian natives as a natural remedy for snake and spider bites, plays a key role in drawing out matter from skin. This makes it an effective remedy for insect bites, stings, boils and even acne. While buriti oil, which is bountiful in vitamin A, promotes skin health to hasten the healing process.

Brazilian volcanic mud black clay, like bacuri butter, also works at pulling or drawing out moisture from skin. Naturally rich in silica, magnesium, calcium and iron, this clay is especially effective against acne and other problematic skin conditions. The black clay available from Paris Fragrances originates from the slow and millenarian erosion of rocks. This results in a diversity of minerals that are part of its natural composition. The clay is then sustainably extracted in the region of Minas Gerais in the South of Brazil. This is where the largest deposit of kaolin clay can be found, caused as a result of the erosion and sedimentation of rocks in the Serra do Mar.

Ingredients:

.75 oz. buriti oil
.5 oz. activated charcoal
.25 oz. bacuri butter
.25 oz. beeswax
.25 oz. black clay
12 drops rosemary essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my Amazon black salve recipe.

Begin by weighing out the buriti oil, bacuri butter and beeswax into a small glass, heat safe measuring cup. Slowly heat using the double method until all of the beeswax has melted.

In the meantime, weigh out the activated charcoal and black clay into a separate container.

Once the beeswax, butter and oil mixture has completely liquefied, remove from heat. Add twelve drops each of both rosemary and lavender essential oil, then stir to combine.

Now add the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients. Slowly fold them into the salve, then mix well to evenly combine the charcoal and clay throughout the salve.

Finally, pour the salve into your containers of choice. (I used 1 oz. metal tins, then decorated the lids with 1″ round stickers.)

Once your salve solidifies it’s ready for use! Use your Amazon black salve recipe as a spot treatment for acne, insects bites, bee stings, splinters, minor infections and boils.

(It’s important to note that my Amazon black salve recipe may stain fabrics it comes into contact with. Therefore, for use, it’s advised you cover the salve with a bandage after it’s applied to the affected area.)

Learn how CBD oil can help with fibromyalgia and other types of chronic pain, including arthritis. Beneficial for both people and their pets alike, CBD oil is an important adaptogen that helps to regulate our bodies state of balance. Plus learn how you can use CBD oil to make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe for everyday aches and pains.

Plus learn how you can use CBD oil to make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe for everyday aches and pains.

CBD Oil for Fibromyalgia.

Not all CBD oil is created equal. Trust me, I know. In my quest to find natural alternatives to pain relief for my fibromyalgia, I tried more than six different brands of CBD oil. While they all worked great at reducing anxiety and inflammation, finding one that tackled my worst pain was a challenge.

In part, this was because not all brands of CBD oil were geared specifically toward fighting pain. On the other side of that, fibromyalgia pain is tricky. This is because pinpointing the origin of fibromyalgia pain is challenging. Fibro pain moves throughout various points of the body. It’s not specifically in your joints. Or your muscles. It’s widespread and goes where it pleases.

What causes fibromyalgia?

It’s theorized that fibromyalgia, in layman’s terms, is caused by the brain misinterpreting signals from our body. So when we are particularly stressed, or in fear of a negative or painful outcome (whether physical or emotional,) our brains react to that stress or fear by sending out pain signals to various parts of our body. This is why, the majority (if not all) of the people who experience fibromyalgia pain, have experienced either a physical or emotional trauma at some point in their lives. The prior (or ongoing) abuse changes the way our brain handles stress and pain. (Source.)

This is also why, reducing stress and practicing meditation, can help fibromyalgia pain. And why, when we get upset, our pain increases. It’s also why the practices you learn through alternative treatments, such as the Curable app, can help reduce that pain. The methods primarily focus on retraining how your brain thinks and handles stress. It’s also why some fibromyalgia sufferers find relief with SSRI drugs. SSRI’s are able to reduce our stress and anxiety chemically. For others, however, an infection or an illness can also lead to the development of fibromyalgia.

Fibro is not well understood and many doctors are still uncertain about how to treat it. However, short and even long term use of synthetic opioid pain relievers, such as Tramadol, are both addictive and cause worsening severity of pain over time. I’ve found, personally, that pain killers absolutely do lead to increased sensitivity to pain. Therefore, when I stopped taking pain killers and instead focused on natural supplements that targeted inflammation, anxiety and healthy stress response, my pain actually decreased.

How does CBD oil benefit the body?

This is what led me to explore adaptogens. Like adaptogenic herbs such as ashwagandha, maca and holy basil, CBD oil is also an adaptogen. Or, basically, a non-specific remedy that increases our bodies resistance to a broad spectrum of harmful factors of different physical, chemical and biological natures.

CBD oil works because it interacts with our bodies through the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) or endocannabinoid system. Discovered in the 1980’s, the endocannabinoid system regulates the body’s general state of balance. It has a positive impact on mood, sleep, appetite and hormone regulation as well as our bodies pain and immune response. As such, the endocannabinoid system is an extremely important regulator within our bodies. However, few of us take steps to support this system as cannabinoids are not a part of our normal daily diet. (Learn more about the endocannabinoid system.)

In addition to its benefit as an herbal supplement, CBD oil also has numerous medical indications including anxiety, epilepsy, inflammation, cancer and chronic pain. And it’s not just for people either. All mammals, including dogs and cats, benefit in the same way we do. My 9 1/2 year old dachshund has been able to jump onto the couch again despite arthritis in his front knees since taking MediPets CBD Oil. They even offer CBD oil infused edible treats for both cats and dogs so even picky eaters can get the endocannabinoids they benefit from.

Plus learn how you can use CBD oil to make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe for everyday aches and pains.

How much CBD oil do I need?

I’ve found that taking a daily CBD oil supplement at a lower dose works best for long term maintenance of my fibromyalgia. It helps with anxiety, stress and insomnia. However, when I have a pain flare up, that maintenance dosage isn’t enough to bring my pain level back down. Therefore, for flare ups, I have typically take between a 50 mg to 100 mg serving twice a day until the pain dissipates.

The packaging of your CBD oil should indicate on the back how many mg are in a serving. Most oils offer between 6 mg and 35 mg per serving. The amount of CBD oil per serving is also indicative of how much more you’ll pay for your CBD oil.

If you can’t find the amount of CBD oil per serving on your packaging, you can determine the amount yourself. For example, if a 30 ml bottle of CBD oil contains 700 mg of CBD oil, simply divide the total amount of CBD in mg by the number of ml of oil in the bottle. Therefore, 700mg divided 30ml equals 24 mg per 1 ml dose, or one dropper full. While CBD 1500 mg will have 50 mg of CBD per 1 ml serving.

How you will react to CBD oil varies. It is different for everyone. Factors such as age, sex, weight and diet all determine how CBD oil influences your body. As does the way in which CBD oil is administered. Women tend to experience more pain relief from CBD oil than men. And applying CBD oil under your tongue versus consuming it by way of an edible product changes the time frame in which your body processes and reacts to it. However, for most people, you’ll notice the full effects of your CBD oil dosage about 45 minutes to an hour after consumption.

LT Pain Master Premium Hemp Infused Liquid

I recently had the opportunity to try the Lawrence Taylor Pain Master CBD Oral Drops from Diamond CBD. I am really pleased at how much this product helps with my pain compared to other CBD oils. Not only does it tackle my fibro flare ups, I was also able to use less of this CBD oil than other brands and yet also experience better pain relief.

Additionally, unlike other CBD oils, the LT Pain Master Premium Hemp Infused Oil is naturally sweetened. This makes it easier to consume (for those of us who don’t find the taste of CBD oil particularly enjoyable.) Simply place the desired amount under your tongue. (Then chase it with a glass of water.) Alternately, it can also be added to a vaporizer.

The Diamond CBD family of brands also sells the Lawrence Taylor Pain Master CBD Cream for topical pain relief along with a wide selection of CBD edibles, dabs, drinks and vape oils. So you can purchase everything you want from one reliable and trusted supplier. I’m also pretty excited about the Meds Biotech CBD & Turmeric Capsule Bundles, which you can purchase at a discount here.

Make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe.

In addition to purchasing pre-made pain relief products, you can also make your own CBD natural pain relief salve recipe. My CBD natural pain relief salve recipe is extremely easy to make. Formulated with neem oil, a natural analgesic (pain relieving) carrier oil, CBD oil and anti-inflammatory andiroba oil, this simple natural remedy is perfect for relieving joint pain and tension topically.

Ingredients:

.25 oz. neem oil
.25 oz. andiroba oil (or arnica herbal oil)
.25 oz. Diamond CBD Full Spectrum MCT Oil (in strength of choice)
.25 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
12 drops rosemary essential oil

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this CBD natural pain relief salve recipe.

Weigh out and combine the beeswax, neem oil and andiroba oil in a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Slowly heat over low using the double boiler method.

Once all of the beeswax has melted, remove from heat. Then weigh out and stir in the CBD oil. Using a dropper or graduated plastic transfer pipette, add 12 drops of rosemary essential oil.

Mix again, then pour into two .5 oz. containers of your choice. I used two 1/2 oz. white polypropylene double wall radius jars for my CBD natural pain relief salve recipe. (You can find these containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Once your CBD natural pain relief salve cools, screw the lids onto the jars and label as desired for personal use or gifting. (I used labels with a fake company name simply for demonstration purposes.)

To use, simply massage onto areas of pain as desired.

How to Treat ADHD Naturally (Without Prescription Medications)

350 Shares

Whether you or your child struggles with ADHD, or you find you lack concentration and focus as you age, the inability to focus and on stay on task can be daunting. However, you don’t need to resort to prescription medications with unwanted side effects to rectify this problem. Instead, there are a number of ways to treat ADHD naturally so you can be more productive, in addition to cognition and focus.

How to Treat ADHD Naturally (Without Prescription Medications) Using Natural Herbs & Supplements

Back to school can be a challenge for parents. Especially if you have a special needs child. ADHD, however, is one of those disorders that affects not only children, but adults as well. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD for short, affects an estimated 8.4 percent of children and 2.5% of adults. It interferes not only with our ability to focus. It also causes hyperactivity and impulsivity. Left untreated ADHD can affect our children’s performance in school as well as our own ability to focus on tasks at work.

As someone with fibromyalgia, I can readily relate with the inability to focus as a result of fibro fog. The times I’ve put off work because I couldn’t get my head into it are too numerous too count. And then, of course, when I finally do commit to a project, such as writing, I type a paragraph then get up and pace, on repeat, for hours on end.

It wasn’t until I started taking Gaia Herbs Mental Alertness that I was able to change my process. These days, with a little help from a natural herbal supplement, I can sit and write an entire blog post without ever leaving my chair. So I whole heartedly believe that, yes, there are effective ways to treat ADHD naturally. However, as with everything else in life, it may take some experimentation to find the right fit for you or your child’s ADHD.

Fortunately, we now know that there are natural alternatives for treating the symptoms of ADHD at the source, without resorting to pharmaceuticals with unwanted side effects. Where modern medicine has failed us, many of use have turned to alternative treatment options to take charge of our health and the health of our families.

Discover ways you can support your brain as you age, or as you journey through menopause, along with other practical applications that extend beyond simply treating ADHD with this educational herbal course.

How to treat ADHD naturally without prescription medication. Whether you or your child struggles with ADHD, or you find you lack concentration and focus as you age, the inability to focus and on stay on task can be daunting. However, you don't need to resort to prescription medications with unwanted side effects to rectify this problem. Instead, there are a number of ways to treat ADHD naturally so you can be more productive.

How to Treat ADHD Naturally

Treat ADHD Naturally Through Exercise & Lifestyle Changes

Spending more time outdoors in nature is an easy way to help calm ADHD symptoms. Evidence suggests that spending just 20 minutes on outdoor activities per day can improve concentration. Additionally, participating in yoga or tai chi classes can also offer similar benefits with regular participation.

Treat ADHD Naturally Through Clean Eating

Another one of the ways to treat ADHD naturally is through nutrition. It’s been shown that a diet high in sugar and carbohydrates can exacerbate ADHD. Sugar, gluten and dairy all can trigger inflammation in the body which leads to lessened blood flow to the brain. By consuming lean protein and good-quality fats, your body can better stabilize blood sugar and support the pre-frontal cortex. This in turn often helps to reduce the impulsivity that accompanies ADHD.

Additionally, your should also avoid foods with excess sodium, MSG, HVP (hydrolyzed vegetable protein), yeast extract, caffeine and sugar. It’s also advised that you avoid artificial sweeteners with biochemical alterations as they can interfere with cognitive functions and emotions. In addition, whenever possible, foods with artificial coloring, preservatives and allergens should be removed from your diet as well.

Tips for Clean Eating

Following are easy guidelines for eating better. It’s simple for anyone to incorporate these clean eating tips into their daily diet to support better nutrition.

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables, choosing organic options when available.
  • Eat more whole grains. In other words, grains that look similar to their harvested state. This includes farro, barley, quinoa, wild rice and oats. Not only will these offer more fiber, you’ll also benefit from the extra protein, antioxidants and inflammation-fighting phytonutrients.
  • Consume less meat. Not only is eating less meat healthier for you, it’s also better for the environment. When you do eat meat, opt for natural meats (sans the antibiotics and growth hormones) such as grass fed beef or wild caught salmon. You should also reduce your intake of processed meats such as sausage, bacon and cold cuts, if not omitting them all together.
  • Avoid processed foods made with hydrogenated vegetable oils, artificial colors, refined grains and high amounts of sugar.
  • Limit your sugar intake. Not only does sugar cause harmful inflammation that can lead to illnesses such as Type 2 diabetes and heart disease, it’s filled with empty calories that leave you feeling hungry a short time later.
  • As with sugar, it’s also important to limit your salt intake. Many of us consume well above the recommended daily intake of salt. If using salt when cooking, use it sparingly. I personally like to substitute pink Himalayan salt for sea salt when I cook for the added vitamins and minerals.

Treat ADHD Naturally Through Natural Herbs & Supplements

There are a number nutrients that, when intake is increased either through the foods you eat or supplements, can help with ADHD symptoms. As deficiencies in vitamin B6, magnesium, vitamin C, zinc and iron can contribute to ADHD symptoms, supplements or a change in diet are recommended in order to increase levels of these nutrients in your body.

In addition to common vitamins and minerals, there are also alternative herbal supplements that can help you treat ADHD naturally.

CBG Oil (A Natural Hemp Oil)

CBG oil, a hemp derived compound similar to CBD oil, has shown positive results in treating both ADHD and autism. There are a now a number of scientific trials that testify to the positive effects of using CBG oil to minimize side effects of these conditions. A natural hemp oil, cannabigerol (CBG oil), differs from CBD oil in several key ways. Where CBD oil is great at treating seizures, CBG oil is not. Instead, CBG oil offers the following benefits that CBD oil doesn’t:

  • Assists with memory and focus.
  • Helps with bladder disfunction including overactive bladder.
  • Assists with relief of IBS symptoms along with other bowel and intestinal issues.
  • Helps ease cravings and withdrawal from benzodiazepines, opiates, alcohol and cigarettes.
  • Relieves symptoms of ADD/ADHD
  • Stimulates appetite.

CBG oil offers additional support over CBD oil for the following:

  • Offers relief from pain.
  • Helps with depression.
  • Acts as a neuroprotectant to support neural/brain health.

CBD oil and CBG oil both share these health benefits:

  • Aids in relief of symptoms from anxiety and panic disorders.
  • Is naturally anti-inflammatory and therefore reduces and inhibits inflammation.
  • Slows bacterial growth.
  • Is a reliable sleep-aid that can help with insomnia.

I have personally found CBG oil helpful in treating fibromyalgia. It’s more effective at targeting pain, in my experience, than CBD oil. Additionally it has helped immensely with symptoms of overactive bladder that often coincides with the fibro.

If you’d like to try CBG oil, I purchase mine from Flower Child. They also offer sample packs of CBG and CBD oil as well as sample packs of CBG oil and CBG salve. You can save $10 off your first $30 purchase with coupon code: ref0716498 when you shop at Flower Child through using this link. Alternately, you can learn more about CBG oil in this article from Leafly.

Other Natural Herbal Supplements

In addition to CBG oil, there are a number of herbal supplements that can help you treat ADHD naturally, as established through my experience with with Gaia Herbs Mental Alertness. (Which, incidentally, has also been shown to help with both ADD/ADHD symptoms.) In fact, many of the herbs considered to help with ADHD are found in Gaia Herbs Mental Alertness Herbal Supplement.

Following are the herbs recommended for naturally treating ADHD symptoms.

  • Gingko Bibola
  • Brahmi
  • Gotu Kola
  • Green Oats
  • Ginseng
  • Pine Bark (Pycnogenol)

Studies do suggest however, that these herbs work best when used in combination with one another.

I love sugar scrubs. Not only do they exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and promote smooth, glowing skin, they’re also incredibly easy to make. A gentler alternative to sea salt scrubs, this best natural sugar scrub recipe with murumuru butter is formulated to moisturize dry, maturing and eczema prone skin.

Keeping It Natural with Essential Oils

Rather than use a fragrance oil for this sugar scrub recipe, I chose to scent mine with essential oils to keep this product entirely natural. With a variety essential oil blends on the market to choose from, including a fall inspired pumpkin spice essential oil blend, you can create, use and gift this best natural sugar scrub recipe year round.

As I have fibromyalgia, my favorite essential oil blend to use in my natural sugar scrub recipe is Spark Naturals Amend +. This potent warming essential oil blend is the perfect choice for athletes or for anyone suffering from acute muscle or joint pain. Formulated using a blend of Birch, Rosemary, Marjoram, Frankincense, Black Pepper, Peppermint, Basil, Cedarwood, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Roman Chamomile, and Sandalwood, this natural proprietary essential oil blend supports muscle and joint pain relief.

Natural Ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest

I’ve also been experimenting a lot lately with natural products and exotic ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon forest. Therefore, I chose to incorporate one such ingredient into this natural sugar scrub recipe. And for good reason. The quality and skin care benefits of these sustainably source ingredients has just been amazing. So, as it was when I first fell into soapmaking, I have become addicted to these new found beauty butters and carrier oils.

For this particular natural sugar scrub recipe, I chose to use murumuru butter.

What Is Murumuru Butter?

Murumuru is a funny little word. It’s also a very hairy tree! The Astrocaryum murumuru tree is a palm tree native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. One of the most dominant trees in the region, the murumuru tree yields nutritious edible fruits essential to the local food economy. In addition, the seeds and the wood from these trees also play an important economic role. Hammocks are constructed from the fibers of the murumuru tree, while the seed pods are used to make naturally colored black rings. The seeds themselves yield highly emollient and moisturizing murumuru butter which is commonly used to soften and protect hair.

Mumumuru butter is naturally glossy. It’s also film-forming. This gives this butter the ability to protect both skin and hair in a similar way as silicone. It is rich in lauric, myristic, and oleic acids, which makes murumuru butter less prone to rancidity. While this butter not only nourishes and strengthens hair, it also helps to maintain curls. As murumuru butter won’t clog pores, it’s also wonderful option for dry skin. Due to its amazing beauty benefits, murumuru butter is commonly found in commercial creams, lipsticks, soaps and deodorants at a usage rate of up to 8%.

Natural Sugar Scrub Recipe with Murumuru Butter

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. unrefined murumuru butter
1.5 oz. organic virgin coconut oil
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
10 oz. white granulated sugar
2 mL essential oil or essential oil blend, of choice

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this natural sugar scrub recipe. Begin by weighing out the murumuru butter, virgin coconut oil and emulsifying wax. Combine the ingredients in a double boiler, then gently heat until melted. Stir to combine. Then remove from heat.

(If you are allergic to coconut oil, or prefer not to use coconut oil for your own personal reasons, you may substitute it with another carrier oil of your choice. To learn more about the properties and benefits of carrier oils in skin care, I recommend the book, Carrier Oils: A Beginner’s Guide to Using Over 40 Carrier Oils in Bath and Beauty Recipes, by Cari Dunn.)

While the murumuru butter, coconut oil and emulsifying wax are melting, weigh out the granulated sugar. Set aside.

Allow the melted butter, oil and wax mixture to cool slightly. Then using a graduated transfer pipette, add 2 mL of your preferred essential oil, or essential oil blend, to the liquid ingredients. (Keep reading for easy essential oil blend recipes to try!) Stir well to combine.

Now combine the liquid ingredients for this natural sugar scrub recipe with the dry sugar. Using a fork, mix the wet and dry ingredients together until all of the sugar is evenly coated. Then spoon the sugar scrub evenly into thick walled PET amber jars of your choice. (I sourced my jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.) This natural sugar scrub recipe with murumuru butter yields enough product to fill the equivalent of three 4 oz. jars.   

Easy Seasonal Essential Oil Blend Recipes

For fall I love this natural pumpkin essential oil blend. Or, if you prefer to create your own pumpkin spice essential oil blend, simply combine 2 parts cinnamon essential oil, 2 parts ginger essential oil, 2 parts nutmeg essential oil, 1.5 parts clove essential oil and .5 parts cardamom essential oil.

In the winter, I enjoy using straight peppermint essential oil. However you can also blend equal parts spearmint and peppermint essential oils for a refreshing winter mint blend.

Or, easy essential oil blends for spring or summer include equal parts lavender and peppermint, equal parts lavender and lemon essential oils or equal parts lemongrass and peppermint essential oils. I also really love blending equal parts of lemongrass and basil essential oils as well as equal parts patchouli and peppermint.

If you’re new to essential oils, an easy way to get started is with the book, Essential Oils Natural Remedies: The Complete A-Z Reference of Essential Oils for Health and Healing. Or try the book, Aromatherapy for Beginners: The Complete Guide to Getting Started with Essential Oils, for over 150 essential oil recipe ideas and blends.

If you prefer a fragrance oil over using essential oils, the pomegranate noir fragrance oil from Paris Fragrances is a great scent choice as it complements the natural fragrance of the unrefined virgin coconut oil. Simply use up to .15 oz. of this fragrance oil by weight in lieu of the 2 mL of essential oil called for in my natural sugar scrub recipe.
