*Side Note* Cornstarch for heat-rash and sweat control

If you're one of the lucky states this summer suffering from an unholy heatwave, you may be looking for natural remedies for a heat-rash or excess sweat, try cornstarch! It draws out and absorbs the moisture in your skin and creates a soothing/cooling feeling. It can also be used in areas where sweat pools to keep it dry. This may be one of the reasons our home-made deodorant (with cornstarch) works so well!

Another tip; bone up on your spinach intake, or take some flax seed oil. Foods rich in essential fatty acids (salmon is great too!) will help you get over your heat-rash in less time.
