Arjuna Lowers Blood Pressure

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Arjuna (AR-jen-ah) can be found throughout Central and Southern India, and actually comes from the bark of a tree. Your blood pressure can be lowered about one point a week thanks to this compound which helps your heart use oxygen more efficiently. It has also been reported that Arjuna can reduce your bad cholesterol levels by 25% in as little as 60 days.*

Talk to your doctor and discuss the benefits of Arjuna. Arjuna comes in both capsule and powdered form. For capsules, the recommended dosage is 250 mg – 500 mg, taken twice a day, while the powder only has to be taken once a day and should be dissolved into 50-100 ml of water.

Natural Insect Repellant in Closets

No one enjoys having bugs in their home. Luckily, there is an all-natural way that you can deal with them. You can repel pests by hanging dried herbs as a form of insect repellant. Try hanging the bundles in your closets or storage rooms where insects tend to hide.*

Create your own natural insect repellant by bundling dried herbs. Have fun experimenting with rosemary, lemongrass, lavender, citronella, mint or sage for a great smelling way around insects.

Cedar Chips for Moths

You pulled out your clothes from storage and there they are! Little holes in your clothes from moths having a feast! Mothballs are commonly used to take care of this issue, however they are toxic and contain chemicals such as naphthalene and paradichlorobenzene that give off fumes to kill the moths.[1] Here are few natural ways you can save your clothes: cedar is a great moth deterrent, so add some cedar chips or hangers to your bins when storing your clothes. You can also make your own “repellent sachets” by combining cedar chips and lavender, or adding some rosemary, thyme, or dried cloves.

Try natural repellents before chemical ones. They are safer to use and work just as well!
