As our bodies and minds begin to function better, we feel more secure in ourselves. We are able to establish (or reestablish) boundaries between ourselves and others. This does not mean that we become prickly or rude; it enables us to be tactful and firm while still being kind and concerned.

Frankincense Carterri

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Frankincense is an excellent choice for those who are afraid of death, fear coming changes in their lives, or have suffered the loss of a loved one. Helps us link the past with the future, allowing us to connect cause and effect, actions and consequences, to one another. As we make these connections, we can choose our course more wisely in the future.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Frankincense has a reputation worldwide for crossing the blood/brain barrier, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the pineal and pituitary glands within the brain. It is the sesquiterpenes contained in frankincense that give it this ability. (There are many essential oils besides frankincense which contain sesquiterpenes. Some of them even contain more sesquiterpenes than frankincense.)

Myrrh

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Myrrh essential oil helps us see ways and means for the achievement of our dreams. It opens our minds to inspiration and the direction of the spirit while keeping us firmly grounded in reality and common sense. Myrrh has an affinity for the base chakra, which connects this essential oil to issues of abundance and bounty. When we open ourselves to receive the gifts of the spirit and of the material world, these gifts will be given to us.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: One of the outstanding properties of myrrh is astringency, which means causing tissues and blood vessels to contract naturally. Myrrh can tighten the gums, tone the skin, aid muscle contraction in the intestines and other internal organs, and stop bleeding. Myrrh relieves congestion in the lungs and sinuses.

Peppermint Arvensis

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Peppermint is like a rush of fresh energy into the system. It allows us to relax instead of letting anxiety build up in our body or mind. Peppermint oil is specific for people who move between highs and lows, sadness and happiness, until the ever-widening mood swings settle into lethargy, intolerance, and frustration. Just as peppermint strengthens the digestion and aids the absorption of nutrients on a physical level, it enhances our ability to "digest" new ideas and impressions.

PHYSICAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Dr. Dembar of the University of Cincinnati discovered in a research study that inhaling peppermint oil increased the mental accuracy of the students tested by up to 28%. Peppermint oil can also be used for headaches and nerve regeneration.

Frankincense Sacra

(Boswellia Sacra)

EMOTIONAL/SPIRITUAL/MENTAL ASPECTS: The high levels of incensole acetate found in Boswellia sacra may be responsible for the spiritual properties associated with this species frankincense. Sacra frankincense is often used aromatically to calm the mind and steady the nerves.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Like other frankincenses, the sesquiterpenes in Boswellia sacra cross the blood/brain barrier. They help the body bring more oxygen into the central nervous system. Frankincense is also helpful for skin disorders and circulation problems. It has an excellent effect on the respiratory system and is helpful in "drying" up the conditions of the lung such as bronchitis and pneumonia.

GENERAL INFORMATION: Omani grown frankincense (Boswellia sacra) is regarded as the rarest frankincense in the world.

Mullein Oil

Mullein has been used for centuries because of its outstanding medicinal properties. The herb mullein grows in dry, barren places. Following the ancient law of signatures, this would indicate that mullein is an herb for respiratory conditions, especially those where the lungs need “drying out.” Mullein also has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic properties, thus increasing its value in respiratory ailments and is certainly recommended for use as a carrier oil with these conditions.

Mullein oil is one of the ingredients in EO made by Butterfly Express, llc for use with ear aches and infections. Mullein is often added to herbal poultices to provide emollient and healing properties and to offset the astringency of some anti-infectious herbs. The infused oil can be used in much the same way.

Mullein oil, as a carrier oil, should be used when applying oils to the chest for infections, coughs, and congestion. It can be used in the ears, alone or as part of the EO recipe, to relieve the pain of ear infections and fight the bacterial involved. It can also be of benefit as a carrier oil when working with inflammation and pain. Mullein is gentle enough to be used on babies for diaper rash and for cracked nipples with nursing mothers.

FV

FV causes perspiration and, as a result, lowers fever. The heat of a fever is the body’s way of killing the invading bacteria, virus, or fungus. A fever should never be suppressed by any means other than producing a good sweat. Sweating will not totally “break” a fever, bringing the temperature back down to normal, but it will bring it to the lowest possible point at which the “critters” are still being destroyed. FV is usually made in glycerin, especially for use with infants and children. These two herbs pull very well in glycerin, and would be appropriate for adults also.

Juniper gives us a feeling of gratitude for the privilege to have learned from the experiences and lessons of life. Juniper berry helps to elevate spiritual awareness and reverence for sacred things. It can open the soul to direction by inspiration and religious principle.

Pine Needle
(Pinus sylvestris)

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Pine essential oil is useful for moving on from regrets and self-judgement. It can bring relief from feeling the necessity to "carry the whole world" on our own shoulders. Pine helps us to establish a healthy respect for our own needs, including the need to rest and rejuvenate from time to time. Pine is also for those who confuse the acquisition of more and more "facts" as wisdom.

LeDeliverance

Frequent and consistent use of LeDeliverance also strengthens the immune system. LeDeliverance is an expectorant and helps the lymph system to drain. This is a very effective oil. Everyone should have it on hand.

GENERAL INFORMATION: LeDeliverance can be used, diluted, or diffused, in the home as a cleaner and air purifier to fight viruses and airborne bacteria.

Growing Pains
By Megan Westover

There are no medically known causes for the pain children ages 6-16 experience as they grow. We call it growing pains, and parents hate to watch as their children endure the aches that afflict their growing bodies. Is there anything we can do?

Children are going to play hard as they grow; this is a given. As well as being active, a child's developing body goes through growth spurts causing rapid bone and muscle growth. Extra nutrients are needed to feed these growth spurts, and we can conclude that small bodies that are enduring "growing pains" are nutritionally compromised. Thus, growing pains will be less painful if we supply the lacking nutrients. Studies suggest that bone density is less if the child has not had sufficient Vitamin D, and calcium, during growing years. This lack of density could cause nerves to be a little more sensitive, causing pain.

We know that vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption and bone growth. Without a sufficient amount, the body may not be able to build both muscle and bone mass, especially during childhood. Consider letting your kids get a good amount of sunshine, at least 20-25 minutes per day and eat fish once in a while. Egg yolks also contain some vitamin D.

While we are trying to catch up with the nutrient deficiency, growing pains may be alleviated with Arnica. Consider using arnica with a heating pad and taking a tissue salt homeopathic such as Calcarea Phos.

Add more healthy fats such as omega 3's (fish, flax, and walnuts) and omega 6's (nuts and seeds). More dairy might help too because it has the much-needed calcium. Take out the high carbohydrate/sugar diet, and the hydrogenated fats as this toxifies the body. Kids are growing all the time and need a good supply of vitamin-rich foods to feed their growth spurts. Keep this is mind next time your kids complain of aches in their legs.


Cobalt

Although needed in such tiny amounts, cobalt is necessary for the health of the myelin sheath of the nerves, promotes effective glucose transport from the blood into the cells of the body, aids in the assimilation of iron and the production of red blood cells, and is involved in many of the processes of the body which involve enzymes.
