Frugal Friday Link Up--3 Uses for Chamomile Tea

Good Friday to all.  This week has flown by.  The weather is cooling.
I was able to make a couple of coupon shopping trips this week--the post will be in the linky.

This week from the 99 Cent Solutions book I am sharing 3 uses for Chamomile tea.

1.  Repel mosquitoes.  You may love the mild apple-like flavor of chamomile tea but mosquitoes hate it. Brew up a very strong batch and keep it in a spray bottle in the fridge.  Before heading outside to relax in the back yard or walk through tall grass, spray any exposed skin liberally.  It's fragrant, potent, and totally safe for children.

2.  Lighten your hair.  Play up your blond highlights by using a weak solution of chamomile tea as the final rinse when you wash your hair.  Combine a brewed cup of tea with 2 cups of cool water and pour this over your hair after rinsing out the shampoo and conditioner.  It will make your golden highlights gleam.

3.  Tone your skin.  If you have sensitive skin that feels dry and uncomfortable after washing with soap, try a facial toner with chamomile.  Boil 4 cups of water and soak 2 tea bags in it for 15 minutes.  Discard the tea bags and cool the tea.  Store in a glass jar in the fridge.  To use, remove make up with a soap-free remover, then soak several cotton balls in the cool tea and rub all over your face.  It's far more soothing and effective than many expensive skin products.

Until next Friday----I hope to see many of you link up.
