Homemade Vinegar:

I used a little of the vinegar that I had from the store and made my own Vinegar for softening clothes.  If you want to find out how to make homemade vinegar and herbal vinegar  this a great tutorial. You can also add oils to the softener to add more scent.

I hope this is a blessing today! Let me know what you are doing to help your family with laundry.

Garlic Oil

Recipe for Garlic Oil:

Crush up about 4 or 5 garlic cloves then poor some olive oil over the top and wait an hour. Strain and use on the bottoms of your feet for colds and throats and head congestion. Cover with some old socks and sleep tight! Hope you enjoy this.

When you are fighting a flu or virus or any kind of cough, sore throat, or fever this recipe gives everyone comfort. Garlic is reported to be antibiotic, anifungal and there has even been some evidence that it fights cancer but the verdict is still out on that one. You can find this information at . It's good to know that you have a natural food that is such a friend from the  Lord when you have a sick family member. Right now I have my garlic oil brewing so that I can apply it to my sick child's feet. You can apply it other places but it is more readily absorbed on the feet and you can put socks on so that the smell isn't so strong.

God Bless!
