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:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
