Nuggets of Wealth for Life and Health – July 27th

Now therefore forgive my sin, I pray you, only this once, and entreat the Lord your God only that He may remove from me this [plague of] death. (Exodus 10:17)

Hey Neighbor!

Today is Wednesday, and Here is Your Nugget for this week…July 27, 2022.


Today’s nugget will hopefully benefit those who are battling fleas!!


My husband and I were attacked by fleas a couple of weeks ago. And not because we have pets in our home, but because our recently vacated tenant left us with their personal pestilence – fleas!!

Well, this is not our first go-around with fleas, considering we have been landlords now for almost 30 years.

I remember when we had our first flea infestation at one of our houses, after my tenant had taken in a stray cat.

My husband and I hurried to the pet store and loaded up our cart with flea and carpet treatments….that could’ve been very expensive.

Fortunately, the customer service lady had mercy on us and revealed a natural treatment that literally saved us hundreds of dollars.

What was her natural treatment??

You will not believe it!!

It was Lemon Juice, Table Salt, and Masking Tape!!

No!! I have not lost my mind…just bear with me a moment, please!!

You see, fleas have a hatching cycle of every 1-10 days.

The salt, sprinkled liberally about the floor/carpeting, will end that hatching cycle; while the lemon juice…sprayed liberally about the perimeter of the room, will burn the live fleas.

Ok now…what’s with the masking tape??

Well…in addition to a blood meal, at night, fleas are in search of light and bright objects…like your white tub…and believe it or not, fleas can jump high enough to make it into your bathtub.

So now, you will want to turn on a light near your tub, and make a bunch of reverse masking tape wads (sticky side out), and place them in your tub overnight.

Any fleas that have escaped the salt and lemon juice, will find their way to the tub and get stuck to those wads of tape!!😆

You must replace those tape wads nightly, until there are no more fleas on the new tape wads!!

Now here is another tip, or nugget that has also helped me with the treatment of fleas along the years…

That is Australian tea tree oil (melaleuca)!!

Tea tree oil will also kill fleas when mixed in any brand of carpet shampoo.

And believe it or not, tea tree oil, mixed in your hair shampoo will also kill fleas, lice, and even ticks, hidden in your hair!!

There are so many benefits to using Australian tea tree oil, from…

* Tooth whitening, to

* Restoring hair growth to balding areas upon the scalp, (alopecia.)

* And even for restoring color to areas of the skin that have lost melanin (hypopigmentation), particularly for those having suffered burns!!

But I will not overwhelm you with too much information today!!

For Your Health Homework: Take a deep dive for yourself, and begin to research some of the benefits of tea tree oil, and next week, I will share more personal testimonies about the miraculous benefits of tea tree oil in my life!!

Start Here, if you like!!


Again…I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV

So Ultimately, You must do your own research, and talk with your physician to make the best health choices for yourself and your family.

Don’t Forget…Your Health Must Matter Most To You!!



Just to clarify…I am not a salesperson, nor a distributor for any particular health product or wellness company. My sole purpose here is to strengthen the Body of Christ, so that Together, We might stand a little straighter and a little stronger – until Jesus returns!!

  2. I love your trivia! It’s great and keeps me on my toes! I do have a favour to ask though. Can you pray for a lady for me? She is a prison wife and is having a really hard time right now. Her name is Lisa. It is much appreciated and for my Christian family who is trying to have their book published. Their story is just amazing. You can find it at Uncompromising Faith. GOD BLESS you and your family, and have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I have a great remedy for ants….mix borax with plain powder sugar….you know the really dusty kind that people use for making icing sugar with. Works great. I have used it especially as I have been bitten by fire ants and have had seizures from them….The off the shelf products ant products I did not find did much of anything.

  5. You have to very aggressive with mouth balls if they are living in the wood and the walls!! I also recommend ‘Combat’ Buy the tube and lace it everywhere. The roaches will eat it and take it back to their nests to share with their babies.


  6. I have heard that mothballs keep away insects and I do put them in my drawers but the roaches are still around. I believe that the wood that make the kitchen cupboards are breathing ground for them. Thanks for the information 👍 😀

  7. Believe it or not…mothballs!! It doesn’t kill them, but wherever you place them…the roaches will clear out. Roaches can’t stand the smell and I think it effects their nervous systems. Place at least 3 inside of cabinets, behind appliances, toilets and sinks and even in the window sills!! It works great…if you can stand the smell🤣
