Essential Oils

I have known about Essential Oils and what they can be used for since I was in my late twenties but have not studied them seriously. A friend here in the building started using the Young Living brand a couple of years ago and she swears by them.

I want to try but like most ideas, my progress will likely be Hit and Miss. For today I am looking at some natural remedies that I want to try out when I find the set I bought a couple of months ago. I'm thinking they are in one of the garbage bags under the printer table.

Oh yeah, not garbage, they contain books from the bookshelf and other odds and ends that were cluttering up my desk space. I needed to clear the bookshelf for the garage sale and haven't returned the books to it yet.

So today is a bad pain day my back is on fire and so are my arms. I entered a google enquiry for Oils that help with nerve pain and I found a place called Essential Oil Sanctuary The article I found recommended 12 essential oils for use with the pain.


https://www.authorityhealthmag.com/11-essential-oils-for-nerve-pain/

1) Peppermint - pain killer, anti-inflammatory
2) Geranium- anti-inflammatory
3) Lavender- pain killer, anti-inflammatory
4) Helichrysum - anti-inflammatory, sedative
5) Eucalyptus - pain killer, anti-inflammatory
6) Chamomile - anti-inflammatory
7) Marjoram - pain killer, anti-inflammatory
8) Clove - pain killer, anti-inflammatory
9) Balsam Fir - pain killer, diabetic neuropathy
10) Ginger - pain killer, anti-inflammatory
11) Frankincense - sedative, anti-inflammatory
12) Wintergreen - pain killer, anti-inflammatory

There are other uses for these oils too which provides certain extra benefits like numbing or warming whichever works best for you. On this page at EOS are some combinations to try like this one:


General Nerve Pain Blend

Ingredients:
Directions:
  1. Combine all the ingredients above in a small glass bottle.
  2. Cap and gently roll between the palms to mix.
  3. Apply to areas of the body where nerve pain is experienced.
  4. The recipe can be multiplied for large-scale or daily use.
  5. (Hint: St. John’s wort herbal tincture can be substituted for the carrier oil when treating sciatica, shooting nerve pain, or shingles.)
I am thinking that this is the one I want to try providing I have all the oils, if not I'll order them. One way or the other I will try this.

July 12 Well I priced out the ones I was missing and for 4 bottles it came to nearly $85 so I decided against it. I'll check the other recipes on this page and see if there is one using the base set I have, if not then I guess I'll have to pay the money though it seems like a lot just to test something.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
