‘Knock Out Blow’ Headache Relief Stick

Ok, time to get personal here. I suffer from chronic cluster headaches. I was on Pizotifen to prevent them for nearly a year, but have just switched to Topiramate. I can’t tolerate opiates like codeine, and I don’t respond to paracetamol, and have a reaction to ibuprofen, so aspirin is my only choice of painkiller….

So all guys like a good scratch every now and again.

‘Flow Glue’ Hair Wax

They need glue. This recipe is adapted from the original ‘Pomade’ recipe over at TheHippyHomemaker.  [picture coming soon]   So,…

‘Make Me’ Chilli Muscle Rub

‘Misconduct for Stinking’ Gear Spray

So, your hockey kit stinks. Doesn’t it always? *sigh* if only I could just spray it and it’d all be fine…or maybe, you can? With tea-tree oil as a natural antimicrobial agent, and lemon for a fresh scent, this spray not only makes your kit smell better but also helps to stop bacteria breeding in your body…

‘Helmet Hair Tamer’ Hair Jelly

Hair and helmets were not meant to go together. Even if Bauer did produce a ‘hairmet’ straight out of Scrubs, we’d still have some issues.
