Nature's Remedies:
These are little tidbits of information that I have collected through the
years from various newsletters, publications, books, magazines, friends
and Elders from around the world. I hope you enjoy reading them.

With all the essential oils, please be sure to wash your hands with
soap/water after using them and don't get them near your eyes.

Tea Tree Oil: can be helpful with headaches when massaged on the
muscle between the thumb and index finger of your right hand.
(Please be sure to always remember to wash your hands afterwards, you
never want to get this, or any, oil in your eyes)

An Apple a Day: Cornell University researchers have identified 12
different compounds called triterpenoids in apple skin that were shown
to either inhibit or outright kill cancer cells in lab cultures.  The cancer
cells included those of the human liver, colon, and breast.  Based on
their studies, these same researchers feel apples may also help in
preventing or fighting Alzheimer's disease.  So, an apple a day........

A little Frankincense will do:  Feeling depressed or having high anxiety?
Light a Frankincense incense stick or cone. If you cannot handle the
smoke or are in an area where you can't do this, put a drop of
Frankincense oil on a tissue and breathe in.  In moments you will feel
calmer and your spirits will be lifted.  Ancient sages, metaphysical and
religious practitioners, as far back as biblical times, have been using this
wonderful oil with great results.  So sit back, relax, and breathe deeply
and enjoy your newfound calm. Be sure to keep away from eyes-wash
your hands after using this or any oils.

Keep your Natural defenses high: 1 drop of pure peppermint oil and 1
drop of pure lavender oil rubbed into the bottom of your feet each night
will boost your immune system and help you ward off illness during the
winter months, and the rest of the year, too.  This is a great addition to
your healthy diet and exercise program you may already have in place.  
But who couldn't use a little extra defense.

Mid Afternoon Blah's? 1-2 drops of peppermint oil on a tissue and
breathed in slowly and deeply will invigorate your senses and help you
come out of your slump. So much better for you than that mid afternoon
cup of Joe or a candy bar, there are no jitters or crashes later on.

Cough keeping you up at night? Instead of rubbing your vapor rub on
your chest, put it on the soles of your feet and put on clean cotton socks.
You will be amazed how it will calm your cough through the night.

Thyme to help your cold, flu & sore throat symptoms:
Pour a cup of boiling water over 2 tsp dried (or 3 tsp fresh) thyme and
steep for 10 minutes.  Drink 3 cups daily for your symptoms. You can
gargle with this mixture to help ease a sore throat.

Some other good things to know:

* Drinking 2 glasses of Gaterade can relieve headache pain almost
immediately.

* 2 Altoids peppermints can help clear up a stuffy nose.

* If you have achy muscles from the flu - mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in
1 cup of olive oil, let stand for 30 minutes, then apply as a massage oil for
instant relief of aching muscles. Good for other times you have aches.

* Sore throat? Mix 1/4 cup vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1
tablespoon 6 times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

* Knock out urinary tract infections at the onset with regular Alka-Seltzer
tablets. Dissolve 2 tablets in water and drink, will clear it.      
(Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold Medicine will NOT work at all.)

* Help clear up a bad pimple: cover the blemish with a dab of honey at
bedtime, cover with a bandaid and the honey kills the bacteria and it's
much better the next morning.

* Heal a bruise quicker: soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply to
the bruise and wrap it for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and
speeds up the healing.

* Kill fleas on your dog: Add a few drops of Dawn dish washing liquid to
your dog's bath and then shampoo the dog thoroughly. Rinse well to
avoid skin irritation, but goodbye fleas.

* Help with wet dog odors: Wipe down your dog with any dryer sheet and
they will smell better and it cuts that wet dog smell.

in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, let cool slightly till just
warm and dip your hands in the mixture for soothing relief from arthritis
pain.

* Painful Boils: cover the boil with tomato paste as a compress. Wrap and
leave on for 20-30 minutes to soothe the pain and bring the boil to a
head. The acid in the tomato paste does the trick.

* Smart Splinter remover: Just put a drop of Elmers glue on the spot and
allow it to dry, then peel off in the direction of the splinter coming out
and it will come out with the removal of the glue.
