This super effective organic bug repellant is really easy to make. 

It's perfect for your herbs, vegetables and fruit trees as well as your ornamental plants.

The recipe and transcript is here.


It's 'thyme' to make a herbal acne remedy! 

This is so simple and really effective. You'll need thyme and witch hazel - and time ;-) 

The thing with acne (whether teenage acne, adult acne, back acne, chest acne, face acne) is that it can respond to one treatment for a while and then flare up again. A series of different acne remedies can help you get on top of it.



Thyme and Citrus Countertop Cleaner

Vinegar has powerful anti-bacterial properties. Thyme is anti-viral and anti-fungal as well as anti-bacterial. Put the two together - well, you've got a great disinfectant, but it doesn't smell too good!

Add some citrus peels, wait a couple of weeks and you'll have a product that will help keep your house 'green' clean and smell gorgeous!

Watch the video and learn how to make a Thyme, Citrus and Vinegar Cleaner


Drying Mint in the Oven

This technique of preserving herbs is very useful to master. You can dry small quantities at a time - say, if you've only just got a harvest or if you've got some left from buying a bunch at the supermarket. I use it to keep my Aerogarden and other indoor herbs at a reasonable size. 

If you want to be super-economical, then co-ordinate your drying herbs session with a time you've just finished cooking and use the residual heat.


Drying Basil in the Dehydrator

Basil can grow like a weed once it starts. You can freeze it very easily. If you've got a dehydrator, then give that a go as well. Dried basil works well in pasta sauces and you know if you've grown it yourself, then it's pesticide free.
