Welcome to the June issue of the Natural Skin Care Newsletter

      This month's Newsletter is a mix of humour and information. In the southern hemisphere we are officially entering into Winter, while in the northern hemisphere summer is well and truly on it's way. However, having lived in Switzerland for a great part of my life, I do know, that even in early summer things can get a bit cold at times. So I've included some hints and tips on how to keep warm during those winter nights.

How did we survive?
They are out there and have all the rights you have!
Warming herbs for these chilly winter months.

To start off with, a humorous look back to when things seemed just that little bit less complicated and dare I say, less regulated...


How did we survive...

According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids in the 40's, 50's, 60's, or even maybe the early 70's probably shouldn't have survived.

Our cots were covered with bright coloured lead-based paint.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets. (Not to mention the risks we took hitchhiking.)

As children, we would ride in cars with no seatbelts or air bags.
Riding in the back of a truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.
We ate cupcakes, bread and butter, and drank soft drink with sugar in it, but we were never overweight because we were always outside playing.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then rode down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the street lights went on!

No one was able to reach us all day.

NO CELL PHONES!!!!!

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo 64, X-Boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on sky , video tape movies, surround sound, personal cell phones, personal computers, or Internet chat rooms.

We had friends! We went outside and found them.

Sometimes we got really hurt. We fell out of trees, got cut and broke bones and teeth, and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.
They were accidents. No one was to blame but us.

Remember accidents?

We had fights and punched each other and got black and blue and learned to get over it.
We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and ate worms, and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes, nor did the worms live inside us forever.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or  rang the bell or just walked in and talked to them.

Rugby and Netball had tryouts and not everyone made the team.

Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Some students weren't as smart as others, so they failed an exam and were held back to repeat the same class.

Our actions were our own.

Consequences were expected. The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law.
Imagine that!

This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers and problem solvers and inventors, ever.
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

And you're one of them!
Congratulations!


Then of course are the events that take place in our lives which make you think, I mean they really make you think...

They are out there and have all the rights you have!

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the North?" When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, (and has for some time), she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff."

...She also votes!


I used to work in technical support for a 24x7 call centre. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call centre was open. I told him, "The number you dialled is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific."

...He also votes!


So my colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the admin. assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving."

...She also votes!



My sister in-law has a lifesaving tool in her car. It's designed to cut through a seatbelt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

...My sister in-law also votes!


My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

...He also votes!


I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, "Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?" I explained that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned.

...My friend also votes!


My girlfriend and I were picking up some sandwiches from the sub place last week and she asked the clerk which of two sandwiches was better. The clerk didn't have an opinion but did say that the first sandwich was more expensive. My girlfriend got a quizzical look on her face and asked, "If that's the case, why are they both listed with the same price on the menu?"

To this, the clerk responded, "I don't think we add tax to the turkey."

...The clerk also votes!
 
I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up.

She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?"

...She also votes!


Well, I hope these little snippets gave you all something to chuckle and think about...

Using Warming Herbs on Cold Winter Nights

      Herbs are just great, aren't they? You can use them in a tea, in a bath, use them medicinally or in your cooking to add spice and flavour. No matter how you use them they will have a beneficial effect, assuming they are used correctly of course, and they make us feel great.

     Warming herbs do just that - they warm us up. Ginger, Black Pepper, Chillies, Garlic, Chives, Fennel and many others are known to have warming properties. These warming properties can stimulate your appetite, physically make you feel warmer, promote blood circulation and provide a variety of other beneficial effects.

     With Winter on our door step, well here in the southern hemisphere, the days are getting cool and the nights can be freezing, yep, even in Australia we get frost. So warming herbs used in soups, teas, and baths can be a very welcome source of a little bit of warmth and comfort.

     Topically you could use Wintergreen (make sure you dilute it with olive or apricot oil to avoid irritating your skin) to stimulate circulation into an area which may be suffering from the cooler temperatures, causing aches and pain in your joints or limbs.

     In Chinese medicine, herbs are chosen for their warming properties to promote the flow of Chi (the body's vital energy). The warming energy of the body is attributed to the Kidney- and Spleen Yang energies. Our bodies also have a defensive energy, called Wei Chi, which is associated with the energy of the Lungs.

     Using herbs to strengthen and stimulate this energy helps prevent the penetration of Winter chills into our bodies and protects us from the 'evil chi' (pathogens). Cinnamon, Ginger, Ginseng and other herbs are frequently used in Chinese medicine to stimulate the Wei Chi and thereby protect the body from the onset of colds and flu.

     Whilst you may not want to add Ginseng to your soup, you can use Ginger, Cinnamon, Garlic, Cayenne pepper and other stimulating herbs. These go great in a chicken soup for example and you will feel the warmth for hours if not longer.

     Similarly, you can use the essential oils of Ginger, Basil, Clove, Cinnamon or Bergamot in a warm bath. These essential oils are warming and stimulate blood circulation. (Don't use more than 3-4 drops in your bath!!! - More is not better).

     Our Refreshing Body Oil Blend has several ingredients which are warming and stimulating and you could use this massage oil to rub onto aching limbs and joints to promote circulation.

     Experimenting with making your own teas can also be fun and 'interesting'. Use some of the ingredients, in dried herb form mentioned above, and mix them up, then add hot water to make a tea. Don't be afraid to experiment. For example, add a small pinch of pepper to your tea blend, not too much, just a small pinch. You could start by making a hot lemon tea, then add some Ginger, Honey and a little pinch of Pepper. You can get as creative as you like - taste test as you go, when you've found a nice taste, stop adding other herbs and enjoy your own warming tea. Think of the herbs and spices in your kitchen as potential teas and start being creative.

Here is a list of other websites that have some great tea recipes:
