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.

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

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…

Eat Breakfast like a King

That is the first line of a poem that I heard long ago. I am not sure who wrote it or even if I am quoting it right.

If a (wo)man would eat
Breakfast like a king
Lunch like a prince
Dinner as a pauper
Such a (wo)man would be
Healthy, wealthy and wise

I think a prince is supposed to refer to the storekeepers and such who ate three course instead of the 10- 12 courses a king would have at that time. I think it was written in the 1500's

After a little research I found that it was made popular by Adelle Davis in her weight loss book "Lets Get Well", but she only used "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper". I know I have seen that quote as written above elsewhere but danged if I can remember it now. All good sound advice considering she wrote that book in 1965

What it basically says is eat a large meal when you break your fast in the morning, a mid-size lunch and a tiny supper and you will become healthy, rich and smart.

Today I thought …
