Makes 16 oz, enough for 8 baths.

Mix together all the ingredients and pour into a clean bottle with lid or stopper. to use:

Shake gently and pour 1/4 cup into the bath under running water.

There are two kinds of bath oils: those that float on top of the water (most oils will do this) and those that disperse or disappear into the bathwater.

By combing a natural oil together with Glycerin and Soap, you have a mixture that disperses through your bathwater. You create a bubble bath that works its way beautifully through your bath, leaving your skin soft and smooth. It makes a marvelous gift and can be enhanced by adding your favorite fragrance or scented oil.

The (Anti-bacterial) Vinegar of the Four Thieves

April 19th, 2007

Inspired by Better Basics for the Home, by Annie B. Bond (Three Rivers Press, 1999). http://www.care2.com/

During the time of the Black Plague a family of perfumers robbed the dead. As perfumers they knew well the antiseptic Essential Oils, and they infused them in vinegar and rubbed them on their bodies; by doing so they protected themselves from certain death. The doctors of the time used the same Herbs and Essential Oils to to protect themselves while tending so many who were contagious. They wore big cloaks over their heads that reached down well below their shoulders. Attached to the cloak over the nose and mouth was a 10” long canoe-like shaped beak full of antiseptic Herbs and Essential Oils.

You can make natural antibacterial products like those that they used at home instead of buying commercial disinfectants that we are now finding out may cause drug resistance. Here is the famous Vinegar of The Four Thieves recipe; it is sometimes called Grave Robber’s Blend. Use it wherever you would normally use disinfectants.

How to Starve Cancer Cells

April 19th, 2007

(Courtesy Of Nelly Coneway)

  1. Every person has Cancer cells in the body. These Cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.

When doctors tell Cancer patients that there are no more Cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the Cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size

  1. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

  2. When the person’s Immune System is strong the Cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

  3. When a person has Cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

  4. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including Supplements will strengthen the Immune System.

  5. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing Cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, Kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

Ways to Fight Inflammation

April 19th, 2007

Chronic inflammation is not only a leading cause of painful joints, it is also implicated in a host of health problems including Cancer, overweight, Alzheimer’s, and Heart Disease. America is sometimes called the “Inflammation Nation” because our diet and lifestyle puts us at risk for this condition. Here are six simple ways to combat inflammation to improve your health and wellbeing.

  1. Eat more anti-inflammatory foods. Avoid trans fats and corn syrup. Instead, choose foods high in inflammation-fighting properties like extra-virgin Olive Oil, whole grains, and plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits.

  2. Get sufficient sleep. Most of us don’t get enough. Aim for 8 hours a night.

  3. Relax! When we give ourselves the gift of deep relaxation we help our bodies put out the inflammation fire.

  4. Lower your stress levels. High levels of stress are a leading factor in inflammation.

  5. Keep your weight at a healthy-for-you level. Ironically, not Dieting but eating MORE anti-inflammatory foods will actually help you to do this!

  6. Exercise. As little as 30 minutes of walking on most days will be hugely beneficial.

Crystals and Gemstones for the Holidays

April 19th, 2007

Any gemstone makes a beautiful holiday gift! There are some obvious, as well as some not so obvious choices I would like to mention, that can make a great gift as well as have great significance.

Chiastolite

The “Cross Stone”sign of devotion towards awareness and dispels negativity. It signifies both death and re-birth and helps one to understand the realization of immortality. It is used as a bridge for “crossing over”.

It helps one to assimilate during times of change. It provides insight to answers when problem solving. This powerful crystal balances one’s perspective in both creativity and practicality. During illness, it helps to maintain spirituality, lessens Fever, balances blood flow, increases secretion of milk in nursing mothers and repairs chromosome damage.

Diamond

When considering the use of a Diamond for healing purposes, one must ignore its monetary value and concentrate upon the stone’s unique relationship with energy. It is frequently combined with other Gems or Crystals. If used with an Aquamarine, a Diamond will increase the cleansing properties and mental soothing that Aquamarine helps to produce.

Here is the wise and simple formula for whiter, brighter teeth:

  • 2 tablespoons dried Sage leaves

  • Preheat oven to 250F. Using a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle, grind the salt and Sage together.

  • Spread mixture evenly on a baking Sheet and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then stir to blend.

  • Scoop some of the mixture onto your toothbrush and brush vigorously.

In recent years, doctors and scientific researchers have been focusing new attention on the idea of drinking Green Tea in an effort to keep Cancer at Bay. It’s been thought that the beverage possesses certain natural properties which make it a likely Cancer preventative.
