Cats

The Tiger on Your Couch by Bill and Judy Peterson
A great book for training a cat not to use its claws on people. Very helpful!

How to Think Like a Cat by Pam Johnson-Bennett
The suggestion of hiding pills in hair-ball remedy was enough to make me (and Muffy) glad I bought the book!

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities

We are called canaries by some. Why? Miners took canaries underground with them as their first warning system. If the canaries started acting sick, they knew there was poison gas and they ran. We are the first warning “canaries” for a society that creates 1,000 new chemicals each year.

Less Toxic Living (safer products)
AlerG has AllerAir air filters and lots more
NonScents (salon quality hair care without fragrance)

The products I use:
Allens Naturally  (dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and veggie wash.) Their products are also available at Shop Organic.
Healthy Home (a lot of products in one place and information, too)
I Can Breathe! (masks with replacement carbon filters)
Emu Oil (odorless)
Smells Be Gone (an odor eraser that works on any odor. The unscented spray version is non-toxic, non-staining, non-allergenic. The tub version has an odor.)
Canary Cosmetics has no odor, but it made my dry skin even dryer. I use ColoreScience Mineral Makeup. They are both made from ground minerals.

 

Cosmetic Recipes I use:

Apple Cider and Aspirin Toner (exfoliates)
Yield: Approximately one month of daily applications

Ingredients:
• 1/2 ounce organic apple cider vinegar 1 Tb
• 3 ounces mineral water 6 Tb (3/8 c.)
• 4-5 plain aspirin tablets, uncoated 1/2 tsp

Instructions:
1. Dilute 1/2 ounce organic apple cider vinegar with 4 oz of mineral water.
2. Use pestle and mortar to crush aspirin tablets.
3. Add aspirin tablet mixture to water and vinegar mix.
4. Apply toner sparingly to areas with acne, rough skin or enlarged pores.

The solution will stay fresh for one month in the refrigerator. (I put a week's worth in a small container in the bathroom and the rest stays in the frig.)

NOTE: 2 aspirin = 1/4 tsp. crushed

Dandruff "Shampoo"

Add 2 crushed aspirin to the shampoo in your hand. Leave the shampoo on your head for 2 minutes. Rinse and shampoo again - to be sure that the aspirin is out of your hair. I use the NonScents shampoo mentioned above.

I crush a whole bottle of 325mg aspirin at once and then I have it ready for both of these recipes.
