Lose Weight with Patchouli

I have a reader question that I would like to discuss today. Jenny asked if I would help her with more information on how to lose weight with patchouli essential oil. First, Jenny, there is no wonder drug or essential oil that will help you to eat less. It is really about self control and your own mindset that you want to change your body through diet and exercise. Visualize a piece of meat and imagine cutting and separating the fat from the lean part. If your diet consists of fruits, vegetables, fish and meat, your body tissue will look like the lean cut of meat. On the other hand, if you eat cakes and sweets, potatoes smothered in butter and fatty meats, you body tissue will be like the fatty part.

There are many essential oils that help fight fat but Jenny asked abut patchouli which can help dieters in several ways. First, it has the ability to diminish your appetite. Regularly put 2-3 drops of patchouli into a diffuser and let it diffuse through the air to reduce your appetite. This is a good way to balance the diet and exercise program you are on. You can also put 8-10 drops of patchouli into your bath water. This will not only help you to reduce your appetite, it may also ease water retention and bloating. Massaging your body with 1 ounce of a good carrier oil containing 2-3 drops of patchouli will also ease water retention and help you tone your body as your diet and exercise program help you lose weight. Jenny, I hope this is helpful to you and to any others interested in losing weight.

Prevent Teen Skin Breakouts

My daughter paid off her car loan (big celebration) and asked me to go pick up her title from the dealer because she no longer lives here. I was just going to run in and run out but you know what happens to the best laid plans. I asked for the papers and the receptionist was looking them up but couldn’t find them so the office manager came over and started to help. He told me they were serving sandwiches to their customers today and asked me to go make myself a sandwich while they did a little digging for the correct papers. While I was making a turkey  sandwich with all the fixings, the receptionist got a call from her son.

She and the office manager started discussing teenaged children and the receptionist said she remembers what she was doing at the same age her daughter is now and she is very worried because her son had just called to tell her that her daughter had invited her boyfriend over while mom was at work. I told her I had more problems like that with my girls than I ever had with my son. The office manager said he only has a 12 year old son and his biggest problem so far is that his skin just started  breaking out with pimples. You know I had to put my two cents in about skin problems. I told him to get his son some Dudu-Osun African Black Soap and also some shea butter so he can get rid of the pimples. He surprised me by saying  he wanted to get him some natural products instead of the ones with the expensive commercials and infomercials because he thinks natural products are better for you. I was all set to go into the whys and wherefores but I didn’t have to, he already knew about our natural products. You should try it too if you have any problems with your skin.


Smelly Feet and Tea Tree Oil

My cousin was complaining about her son’s smelly shoes and stinky feet. She said he takes a shower every day but it doesn’t help so I told her about the wonders of tea tree oil. To rid your shoes of those awful smells you can put 20 drops of tea tree oil in a plant spray bottle with one cup of water. Shake well before you spray inside your shoes. Use the same spray on your feet when you get out of the shower. Let your shoes dry before you wear them and of course, dry your feet after the shower but you don’t need to spray so much on your feet that they get wet enough to dry them again.

If you don’t want to use the spray, there is another way to use essential oils to sweeten the smell of your shoes. Put 2 teaspoons  of bicarbonate of soda into a small container, an egg cup from your last dozen eggs will work great. Add two drops of lemon, lavender, rosemary or tea tree essential oil and mix it as well as you can, then sprinkle it into then shoes and leave it overnight. Tap the powder out in the morning and your shoes will smell as fresh as new.

I like to shop online for all of my needs when it comes to getting the best natural products for my health and for my life. Shopping online is great and I am always looking forward to finding what I need online whether I am looking for some essential oils or for something that I can use in the bath and shower. I can always find some great gifts as well.

Doing some online shopping is easy and convenient and I can always find something that works really well for me. I love to shop online and avoid dealing with traffic and crammed parking lots. Living in the Seattle area means dealing with traffic all the time and it is a hassle to go anywhere. I love being able to avoid all that when doing my online shopping.

I can find some great online natural products that work really well when it comes to having my best health and looking my best. I can enjoy finding some massage oil or some hair products that keep my hair really shiny and soft. I feel really good about using natural products and they help me to stay ready for each busy day.


massage Oregano is commonly known as a spice  used in the kitchen but it is not just for pizza, it has many therapeutic uses too. As a matter of fact, it was probably used for its healing properties before its palatable properties were discovered. The ancient Egyptians valued oregano for its power to disinfect wounds and speed up the healing process. Throughout the ages, oregano has been used to sooth coughs, calm stomach and digestive disorders, relieve sleeplessness and relax tension.

Do you crave sugar? Most of us do. Science has found that sugar addiction is just as serious as heroin and cocaine addiction. Some may not agree with that but sugar has been proven to cause some serious negative impacts such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome. You can kick the sugar habit by using natural peppermint essential oil.

Giving up sugar can take you through changes all the way from weakness to cravings or indigestion but as your body adjusts to a life without refined sugar, using peppermint essential oil can make you feel stronger and overall healthier. It has an effect on blood pressure, heart rate both of which can change when giving up refined sugar. Peppermint oil has also been found to treat indigestion and stomach pain in people with irritable bowel syndrome. Stomach issues often arise when getting off refined sugar, as your body goes through a detoxing period.

There are many sugar substitutes that you can use that don’t involve the use of nasty chemicals (like many synthetic sweeteners do). Instead reach for fresh, ripe fruit to help satisfy your innate and very crucial need for glucose, a sugary compound our brains depend on to properly function.

Reducing your dependency on refined sugary junk food can result in a smaller waistline. The benefits of eliminating or cutting down refined sugar intake are endless – and peppermint oil can help!

How To Use Peppermint Oil

1. Apply drops of peppermint oil to your temples and to the insides of your wrists.
2. Repeat the above every morning and evening.
3. Inhale the peppermint oil directly by using a diffuser or by putting 2-3 drops on a cotton ball or tissue and inhaling throughout the day.

 


Rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammation of the joints, can occur at any age. It affects connective tissues and may be brought on when the autoimmune system turns on itself and then attacks healthy cells. When this happens, joints can become useless and muscle starts wasting away. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include acute or chronic pain, headaches, and tender swollen lymph nodes.

Nutrition is important in the treatment of arthritis. Limit or cut out completely dairy and wheat products, red meat, salt, sugar, acidic fruits, and soft drinks. Eat vegetarian foods, white fish and poultry, plus lots of salads with raw vegetables and any form of cooked or uncooked cabbage. Drink lots of water and add carrot juice to your diet. Increase your vitami,mn and mineral supplements; especially take calcium, zinc, and vitamins C, B, and D.

Use any of these essential oils in your bath and massage oil: eucalyptus, peppermint, chamomile, geranium, rosemary, lemon, thyme, and lavender. Before beginning your essential oil bath or massage therapy, you must draw the toxins out of your body with a clay poultice. Make the clay poultice from green clay which you can get from any health food store. Make a stiff paste by adding water to 1 tablespoon to dry clay. Then add 2 drops eucalyptus, 1 drop peppermint, 3 drops chamomile, and 1 drop lavender essential oils to the clay paste and mix well. Smear the paste over the sore joints and painful areas and cover with muslin (which you can buy by the yard) and rest for at least 15 minutes; longer if possible. Follow this course of action twice a day.
