Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 8 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Everything from herbs to some personal blogs. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Charcoal....

The uses for this non-toxic, absorbitive substance are immeasurable & is highly underused. It's also called activated carbon. Be sure you only buy 'food grade' charcoal. It can be used as a body scrub, water filtration, improving your soil, removing odors, drug overdoses & food poisoning just to name a few. **NEVER take it within 2 hours of any medication or supplement as it will absorb it and render it ineffective!** This should be a staple in your medicine cabinet, it can save a life. 

This stuff has the power to cure food poisoning by absorbing the toxins & bacteria. It will ease vomiting and stomach cramps from the flu.

It can save your animal's life too if they have been poisoned. The general rule of thumb for that is...1-3 grams of charcoal per 1 kg of body weight.

It can absorb more than 4,000 poisons, drugs, heavy metals, etc. heres a few it does NOT absorb well: cyanide, ethanol, ethylene glycol, iron, lithium, methanol, mineral acids & salts.

Charcoal can also draw toxins through the skin, so it can be used externally as well. A simple poultice along with internal use can be a very effective home remedy against abcesses, tumors, infections, wounds, poison ivy, pink eye, snake bites, spider bites, hemorrhoids, earaches and more. Internally, it can help fight gas, bloating, diarrhea, acid indigestion, colic, liver disease, peptic ulcers, hangovers & more.

It is not meant for long periods of usage, but can help with detoxing and cut your healing time down greatly.

It removes odors such as pet, smoke, garbage, paint, fumes, musty basements, diaper pails, stinky feet :) & shoes, skunk!, animal barns, sick rooms, chemical smells & more. You can make your own buy buying it in bulk and making sachets or poking holes in lids and filling a jar with it!

Charcoal can be used in the garden! Improve soil drainage, increase nutrients, improves germinations, improves plant resistance to fungal disease & insect infestations. It also absorbs herbicides, heavy metals & other toxins in your soil. It's a great fertilizer & an environmentaly friendly insecticide!

So many uses from something so simple :)
