You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.
Q:Hey Fran I was wondering if you had anything natural that deals with arthritis. My Grands is in pain and though I know it won't cure it, id like to give something that'll at least make it a little easier
I would suggest looking into Arnica. It’s a flower used to heal muscle soreness, arthritis and a few other painful ailments of the body. I’ve seen people suggest the flower as a tea (just added to hot water) but i’ve found that method to take longer as a form of pain relief. I would suggest you go to a health store and look for Arnica lotions and gels, for immediate topical application. It will work so much faster and give your grandma a clean, healthy form of pain relief (no pill popping) without side effects. I hope that helps!

Fight Summer Breakouts Naturally
Henry Happened writes:
Summertime for most means more sunshine, adventures, pool days, beach time — and, unfortunately, extra summer breakouts. Why do we break out in summer more than other seasons? As temperatures rise, so does our oil and sweat gland activity. They are working overtime to keep our body temperatures cool. Add in extra sunscreen applications and longer days spent outside in the elements, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a summer breakout. I’ve put together a few tips and tricks for combating breakouts in the summer

How To Make All-Natural Mango Fruit Leather
Oh My Veggies writes:
It’s been a while since I posted a fruit leather recipe here and since I get requests for them once in a while, I thought I’d post a new one today–mango! While I’m not one to discriminate when it comes to fruit leather, I think mango and banana are my two favorites because both can be made without any added sweetener. No sugar, no honey, no agave–just fruit.
I decided to do things a little bit differently this time and use parchment paper instead of spraying my baking sheet with oil. This has a few pros and cons. The biggest downside is that the fruit leather gets a little bit wrinkled as the moisture is baked out. Ugly fruit leather! But using parchment paper makes it much easier to remove the fruit leather from the baking sheet, the bottom of the fruit leather isn’t all oiled up, and if you’re planning on wrapping your fruit leather, you can just cut it into strips while it’s still attached to the parchment. Easy!
