W is for Warts, Withdrawal, and Wrinkles

W is for Warts, Withdrawal, and Wrinkles

Most all of us get warts at some point in our life. To treat a wart, the essential oil must be placed directly to the wart, while trying to avoid the healthy skin surrounding the wart. The essential oil should be neat, (Undiluted, No carrier oil needed, Straight from the bottle). I use a clean q-tip dipped into the essential oil. Essential oils to try for getting rid of warts include: Lemon or Tea Tree. Use one essential oil, four times a day, for one week. If you do not get results, try the other essential oil. One of them should do the trick.
For very stubborn warts try the following recipe:
Mix together the following essential Oils (No carrier oil is needed):
6 drops Lemon
6 drops Tea Tree
3 drops Thyme
Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly mixed.

Do you, or a person you know, often become withdrawn emotionally from social activities and/or life? Try the following recipes:

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is an evergreen bush found in North America. The oil is extracted from the bean. It is rich in vitamin E and is a unique liquid wax used as an oil. It is fine, penetrating, stable, and long-lasting.

Jojoba can be used as a face moisturizer or as a more luxurious oil for massage. Jojoba has a very close chemical composition to the skin’s own sebum. It is suitable for all skin types, beneficial for spotty and acne conditions, and is good for sensitive and oily skin. As it combines well with the sebum, it also helps to unclog the pores and remove any embedded grime.

Jojoba works to condition and restore the health of the hair. Because of it’s fine texture, it is easy to wash out and is ideal for combatting dandruff and dry scalp.

Feminine Energy…continued

1 Logo by Hemant

FEMININE ENERGY (continued)

Hyacinth Essential Oil is sweet and gentle, like a wood of bluebells in spring. It opens your heart and mind, gives courage, and is narcotic. It helps you to reach deep within yourself, so you blossom and bloom.

Jasmine Essential Oil is powerful. It provokes the ultimate image of woman in a man. It is seductive, it gently lifts your darkest moods. It flows through your anxieties, sedating and relaxing you.

Jonquil Essential Oil will bring out your hidden desires. It transcends the conscious mind; it’s hypnotic. It dissolves frustrations and low self-esteem.

Lavender Essential Oil has a steadying influence on the psyche. It is calming, yet intuitive, like a wise woman. Indecisiveness and emotional conflict are washed away.

Lime Essential Oil is intensely bittersweet. It can get you into action, but never discreetly. Think loud and egotistical; subtlety is not where lime is at.

Mandarin Essential Oil is young and fresh; very sympathetic. It is subtly inspiring and strengthening.

Marjoram Essential Oil redirects the sexual energy, carrying away fear of love. It soothes the brokenhearted. Use when you need a cuddle, not sex. Marjoram Essential Oil warms the emotional cold.

Mellissa Essential Oil casts a spell of happiness. It’s gentle and soft. It fizzes like sherbet; for the mentally exhausted and the lethargic, it has a compelling potency.

More to come…
