        Could someone tell me what rue is and where I can find it. I also need to know where I can find powdered wormwood?

        I was wondering why the Tick Preventative Powder is not to be used around pregnant women & pets.

        Has anyone tried this on their dog?

        Thanks, Stormie

        Wormwood can be found in leaf or root form at any decent health food store (not your local vitamin shoppe, a real health food store ) It should never be used by pregnant women due to it's high concentrations of Thujone. It is also an Emmenagogue (meaning it brings on menstrual flow).

        We have used it successfully on our dogs without issue. (Btw, I "powder" wormwood in the blender).

      I'm always willing to share pics of my babies :newmom: (I have 2 two-legged, and 2 four-legged)! Of course, the word babies is a bit misleading as the human 2 are 24 & 21. LOL!

      Our "new" Pet Bed

      Well, I'm not sure if this counts because it's more repurposing than making something... but what the heck!

      If you have an old chandelier hanging around, scrub it down, spray paint it white and attach a couple birdhouses onto it. You can use silicone adhesive so that it will be sturdy in the wind....
