Mix a little baking soda in with your shampoo for dandruff, also boiled tea bags (cooled) for a sunburn

you can use green tea for everything! like put it on your eyes to reduce puffiness. or create a mask out of oatmeal and grapefruit, that's really great for your skin!

I love rescue remedy too! I carry the cream around in the summertime, it's great for relieving insect bites (especially fire ants).. if you apply it immediately after the bite it takes away the pain and the bite. Also, it is great for sunburns because it takes the trauma away from the skin.

I love tea tree oil. It's my first aid kit in a bottle. My daughter was amazed at the results recently on a skin scrape.

I am looking for a natural insect repellant that I can use on my body. Citronella has been suggested unless there is an allergy to aspirin. Is is effective and are there others?
