A salve for calming Eczema by reducing inflammation and fighting infection:

How to make -

  • 1TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1TSP Himalayan Rock salt (table salt will do)
  • 10 Fresh Sage leaves Salvia Officinalis finely chopped
  • 10 Fresh Spearmint leaves Mentha Spicata finely chopped

- Start by adding the salt to a Pestle & Mortar and crushing it down into a fine powder. Add the leaves and grind to a dry paste. Lastly add the oil and muddle till it becomes a relatively thick green consistent paste.

- Apply the salve to a cotton wool makeup pad or soft tissue and place on Eczema patch, binding in place with a bandage. It will sting initially due to the salt but the Spearmint will calm it quite fast.

- I find from personal use that 2 hours is long enough for it to reduce inflammation and leave the Eczema in a state in which it can heal itself over a few days.

———————————————————————————————–

Why it works -

  • The salt draws excess moisture out of Eczema “blisters” which reduces itchiness and inflammation resulting in a faster healing process and less chance of further infection. This is especially helpful in sweat prone areas such as the crook of the arm and back of the knee.
  • Sage helps to heal the skin due to it’s high antiseptic and antibacterial properties. This is the main healing ingredient.
  • Spearmint also helps to heal the skin but it’s main purpose in the salve is to reduce inflammation and discomfort which can reduce itchiness and pain. This is especially helpful for raised and bumpy Eczema.
  • The Olive Oil helps to soothe the area and lock in some moisture around the  sores so the salt does not draw too much out. It’s main purpose here however is to be the base of the paste.

————————————————————————————————–

This salve is not intended for long term storage and should not be used on the face or on children.

If suffering from dry eczema, do not add the salt.

See old growth Douglas fir and western hemlock along four terrific trails as you hike up to the “fortress” of Table Rock. Breathe in the rich, forest air and remember the poem by Robert Frost, “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep. And miles to go before I sleep.” Photo by Bureau of Land Management, @mypubliclands.

Requested: Anonymous said: Hi!! I really enjoyed Predatory Instincts and I was wondering if (that is if its too much to ask) could you do a similar one with Jungkook being a bunny but falling for a really deadly predator ? (A/N aha the predator can be deadly if you want to take it like that…and he’s not exactly a bunny but close to one.)


Excerpt/summary: In fact you had created a game out of guessing what he shifted into, you glanced over at him and he caught you looking with a smirk, “A grey wolf.”

Genre: fluff, shifter au

Length: 1.1k

A/N: i’m sorry i din’t really follow the request, i just think the animal i gave him suits him better (and it is still close to a bunny). i hope you still enjoy the drabble though!!

“Let me copy your homework,” you pulled your empty sheet from your bag placing it on the table as you sat down next to your classmate. He might have been more of a jock, muscles bulging under a white top reminding you that he worked out more than studying, but he still managed to have good grades copying your work and sometimes bringing in his own completed work. So you hoped this time he’d be able to help you out but as he turned to look at you in slight surprise you had a sinking feeling.

things I associate with the types
  • ESTP: the earth beneath your fingernails after a long day, waking up feeling full of light and ready to get up, summer evenings, the press of a friend’s hand into yours, tan lines that pop on your skin, the chill of rainwater as it slides through your hair, feet sticking out of car windows, running around backyards as the sunlight fades
  • ESTJ: the jarring echo of a microphone when bumped, mowed grass, a newly immaculate room with everything accessible, the fresh smell of rental cars, neat calendars pinned above desks, new school supplies stacked up in your room, monopoly games, sliding into a perfectly made bed at the end of a long day, unpacking in a hotel room, taking yourself out for dinner
  • ESFP: throwing your arm around a friend, gaudy beaded bracelets put together by your little cousin, the quick pant of an excited dog, the smell of campfires, paint stuck in the crevices of your hand, taking neat notes for the kid who’s absent, an instagram full of pictures of you and your friends, screaming the lyrics to songs as you ride down the highway
  • ESFJ: staying after school to help a teacher clean up, biting your tongue to try to stop laughing during class, a sticky kiss from a child, kindergarten art rooms, listening patiently to stories you’ve heard before, staggering around in your mom’s high heels as a kid, walking around town with ice cream and friends, squeezing lemon juice into your hair
  • ENTP: having to do a group project by yourself, walking back and forth to calm your excitement, desks cluttered with papers, the sound of quick typing, the rush of relief after walking out of uncomfortable situations, lying to get a reaction out of someone, the sting of tears brought on by anger, the perfect comeback, mascara smeared down your face
  • ENTJ: protest signs, pinning magazine cut outs to your wall, walking to the front of a room to give a presentation, the click of high heels, tilting your chair back and crossing your arms to show your disapproval, the smell of paint, friendly debates with loud words and wide gestures, losing track of time and blinking tiredly at the clock, perfectly tailored suits left wrinkled on bedroom floors
  • ENFP: bulletin boards with inspiring quotes, humming along off-key beneath your breath, bare feet on hot sand, pinterest projects, curling ribbon with scissors, sewing your own clothes, improvised road trips, bubblegum pink lipstick, convincing a friend to buy themself that new outfit, silly nicknames, candy wrappers littered on the floor, compliments from strangers in public restrooms, good morning texts
  • ENFJ: cute notes left in people’s lockers, talking a friend through their self confidence issues, cleaning your room at two in the morning, dark thoughts that only slip into your mind late at night, the press of a kiss to your forehead, picking out your clothes the night before, convincing a friend to come dance with you, the hand on your shoulder
  • ISTP: taking apart pens and examining the individual parts, spilling out emotions that you’ve kept tightly wound inside, the smell of rubber tires on pavement, writing down your thoughts to better understand them, clenched fists, research papers laid out across a table, jumping off a rock wall and letting the cord catch you, polaroid cameras
  • ISTJ: setting yourself deadlines, slipping candy to a worried friend, puns, stretching after a long day, downing too much coffee so you can stay up to work, drawing tablets, buying Christmas gifts a month in advance, the smell of grass after a rain, sitting in comfortable silence with a good friend, before and after pictures, old family trinkets
  • ISFP: petitions passed around classrooms, a friend’s artwork hanging on your wall, the weight of a child on your hip, getting up early to see the sunrise, interior design, vinyl albums, sitting on rooftops with friends, detailed journals from years back stacked in your closet, the warmth of a cat curled up on your lap, sleepy kisses goodnight, the walk up on stage to collect an award
  • ISFJ: buying friends gifts for no occasion, old photo albums lining bookshelves, waking up knowing that today is not yesterday, holding a bun up with just a pencil, splattered paint on brick walls, doing homework on the way to school, bitten lips rather than angry words, tentative hugs, the smell of vanilla, hair falling in front of your face when you duck your head
  • INTP: dead languages, long winded speeches that change topics multiple times, sweater vests, chalk boards covered with writing, lost glasses that are on top of your head, botanical gardens, finals week, bouncing up and down on the balls on your feet as you rant, unbrushed hair, library fines, the glow of a laptop late at night
  • INTJ: packing for college, perfectly winged eyeliner, beakers overflowing with bubbles, schedule overloads, chess games that last until late into the night, the feeling of silk on bare skin, locking your door while working, texting while walking, leaning forwards into discussions with your elbows on the table, rapid-fire conversations, makeup lined up along the sink
  • INFP: community gardens, braiding flowers into a friend’s hair, giggles, playing guitar to an empty room, yellow daisies, sudden anger, reading by candlelight, unexpected hugs, empty forest paths, make believe, whispers that you know no one can hear, understanding nods during rants, lifting someone up and spinning them around, the smell of new paper, forgotten tea that’s turned cool
  • INFJ: hanging lightbulbs, thick books where the spine curls inwards, shoulders shaking forwards when you won’t let yourself cry, absent kisses laid on top of heads, lying beside a friend in bed and talking to the ceiling, dessert left at a friend’s door, watching the people below from city windows, little notes from friends kept for years, the key to your childhood diary
