"To make mint oil at home (not the real aetheric oil, this is a maceration, not a distillation), take a bunch of mint with a nice high level of menthol (I used Moroccan mint because it grows in my garden and I don’t need as much as I have for tea and cooking), chop it into small pieces, put it into a big jar and fill that jar with 0,5 ltr of a very good olive oil. Put it into a warm and sunny spot and stir daily. After two weeks, sieve the content, put the oil back into the jar and add another chopped bunch of mint. Let sit for another two weeks. After that, the oil should be ready and useful for headaches and for colds. I have also big plans for a homemade peppermint shampoo."

This blog article looks at ways to make the most of a small space - loft bedrooms, storage in the walls - and talks about the sustainability of living in a smaller space. You have less room to put things, which reduces your number of possessions. How do families do living in tiny houses? Can it be done comfortably, or is it more a solution for singles or couples?
