RECIPE: Herbal Tea For Allergies

FOOD ON YOUR FACE: 4 Easter Egg Beauty Treatments

4 Egg Beauty TreatmentsIf you’re blowing out the yolks of your Easter eggs, consider slathering a bit on your face (and hair too). The protein, fats and nutrients in eggs can work for both dry and oily skin types. If you have oily or aging skin, use the egg white to tighten and firm (bye bye, fine lines and wrinkles!). Or let the fats in the egg yolk hydrate and rejuvenate dry or acne-damaged skin. There are tons of ways to put egg on your face – here are 4 of my faves.

HOW TO: Make Herb-Infused Balms for Healing + Headaches

How to Make Herb-Infused Balms | Henry HappenedEvery time I got sick as a kid, my dad would bring out the echinacea. If we got stung, he slapped activated charcoal on it. If we had a sore throat, he wrapped it in wool. My memory is peppered with crazy sounding stuff like ‘royal jelly’ and ‘chaga.’ As a surly teenager, I was convinced my dad, an osteopathic doctor, was totally weird. Now looking back, I realize he was practicing natural medicine way before it was cool.

I have a greater appreciation for herbal medicine when I treat my own kids’ coughs and colds. When they’re sick or hurting, you’re desperate to help them find relief. But when it comes to conventional medicine, the options are often pretty limited for a 2-year-old! Because of this, a balm that can soothe a headache or a scraped knee is something I’m definitely willing to try. Even if my kids start thinking mommy is a little nutty too. :)
