Three Great Sites To Get Your Green On!

There are several great websites to go to when you need information on healthy living and being green. Most people have heard of the most popular sites such as Treehugger and Planet Green, however there are so many great ones out there that you may not know of that are just as informative.

Here are a few of my favorites which focus on being green and connecting with the spirit, mind, body
and soul.

Lime inspires you to live healthy and help make the planet greener. There is lots of information on food, health, home, and the planet. Check out LimeTV and their podcasts. You can also post comments, ask questions and connect with others.

Delicious Living focuses on much of the same, however there is a section on kids and family, lots of recipes, a food glossary which tells you everything you should know about natural ingredients and food terms, and they even have a place where you can print coupons for you favorite natural foods.

If you are more interested in mind, body, spirit, and relationships then Intent is a good place to go for balance in your life. There is information on spiritual healing, how to handle difficult situations, and tips on ways to embrace life. Also, feel free to post what your intent is in life.

There are so many other sites that I could comment on, however these are three of my faves. So when you have time check them out! You will want to keep going back for helpful information and to catch up on ways to help add enrichment to your life.

Also, don't forget to check out your local blogs and sites that focus on the community you live in and spread the green word.

How To Ease The Itch Of Mosquito Bites Naturally

I cannot stand mosquitoes they are to me one of the most annoying insects alive on the planet. Maybe there is some benefit that we get from them but I can't think of any.

We suffer from mosquito bites every year and the itching from the bite lasts for days and can sometimes be unbearable. However, over the past few years I have found a few natural inexpensive ways that have helped me and my family survive and that have helped get rid of the itching from these pesky creatures.

These solutions have been around for a long time so I do believe at least one of the four will work and if not you may have been bitten by a monster mosquito.

  1. Witch Hazel - witch hazel is so inexpensive and can easily be found at your local grocery store. I not only keep a bottle available at all times at home, but also a small bottle in the car emergency kit.

  2. Baking Soda - you put it in your frig, you use it to bake, to clean, etc., but it can also help ease itchy bites. Just add a little water to make a paste and apply to the area.

  3. Dead Sea Mud - dead sea mud is used to draw toxins out of the body and it's not just good for facials, acne, and eczema it will also help stop itching. Just apply, let dry and wipe off after about 10 minutes.

  4. Herbal Salves - there are so many herbal salves that have nothing but good stuff in them. Most contain oils such as coconut, jojoba, sweet almond oils, etc. and they also contain essential oils some of which have healing properties.

On a more serious note mosquitoes may be annoying and cause serious itching, but they can also spread diseases such as malaria which kills over a million people each year in Africa, especially kids. Malaria No More is an organization who takes donations for mosquito nets to help combat the spread of Malaria and to save lives.
