How To Make Your Own Herbal Sleep Salve. Image – DesignSponge.com (with permission)
Here’s a great tutorial I just found courtesy of those cool folks at Design Sponge: How To Make Your Own Sleep Salve.
This “classic” formulation uses all-natural ingredients (you know how we roll by now!) and essential oils which have a tradition of being used to aid with falling asleep.
The recipe follows a fairly similar “base formula” to many other all-natural salves: using beeswax – together with olive and sesame oils as the base ingredients.
We’re pleased to see the inclusion of lavender, which corresponds to our own list of herbs for insomnia (which is worth a look if you are unfamiliar with herbs that are reported to be beneficial as sleep aids).
Lavender is one of the old sleep remedies that has been used as such since ancient times. It can be employed in several forms – such as sachets of flowers, a herb tea, in salves such as the one that is the subject of this page, or even a waft of the vapor from the essential oil bottle can help! I’ve noticed in the past that it really seems to work: The smell of lavender makes me sleepy! Lavender is also used in numerous skin and hair products owing to its reported benefits in these areas.
Chamomile is another classic sleep remedy that is considered calming and restful. This flower, which looks like a “giant daisy”, has been used since ancient times in bedtime teas. The recipe calls for the option of chamomile essential oil, which I would opt for (instead of sandalwood) because I think it will be more effective.
One last tip – be sure to use the “double boiler” method for warming beeswax as stated in the original tutorial. This helps control the temperature of the besswax and prevent it from going too high. Overheating the beeswax, such as is likely to happen if you simply heated it in a pan, will cause it to spoil and burn.
Here, then, is the link to the full sleep salve tutorial:

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

Can you guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat?
This is especially important if you spend a significant amount of time sitting every day (I do, and this really affects me in a big way!)
Working this "hidden survival muscle" that most people are simply not training because no-one ever taught them how will boost your body shape, energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
