HEALTH TIP: Seasonal Allergies and Honey

A large number of people suffer from seasonal allergies. These allergies usually begin in the spring with the advent of pollen being readily available in the air from all the newly growing plants, flowers and trees. The time to begin supporting the immune system in an effort to alleviate seasonal allergies is NOW, before the body is bombarded with all that pollen. Helping the body to detox now and to enhance the function of the lymphatic system is vital when working to reduce these allergies.

A very effective protocol to embrace is the use of local, raw honey. A few tablespoons every day supplies the immune system with a minute amount of the allergens that create the allergy symptoms. When these allergens are introduced into the body in these very low doses, the immune system begins to create antibodies against them. Then, when the levels of these allergens increases in the spring, the immune system has some defense mechanisms already in place.

The key here is that you use LOCAL, RAW honey. The bees will have used local pollen collected from local floral to make their honey. This local pollen will have the ability to supply the body with the right kind of blueprints to create the right antibodies. Raw honey is not denatured by heat and allows the allergens to remain intact.This is not a quick fix. It does take time and faithfulness to the process....but start now with a few tablespoons a day and you will more than likely find a decrease in the amount of allergies come spring time.

Natural wasys to Survive the JANUARY BLUES

By Sharon Moran

With the holidays over and behind us, January can bring with it “The Blues.” Knowing that this might happen and acting before you feel the effects is vital. Here are some tips on some natural ways to fight off that “blah” feeling that hits all of us in January.

Exercise is an excellent way to combat “the blues” and depression. Exercise releases endorphins that can boost your mood as well as make you feel calmer and more optimistic about the future. Exercising outside in the sunshine, even when it is cold outside, goes a long way in fighting "cabin fever" and mild depression.

Drink plenty of water and try to get your eating habits back on track from the holidays. Getting your body to function properly may help to stabilize your mood swings. A lot of us make resolutions at the first of the year to diet and watch what we eat. This year, instead of focusing on what we have to take away, try focusing on what you are going to "add" to your diet to improve your health. Try adding: more water (and less soda), more raw fruits and vegetables (and less fried foods) and how about adding more home cooked food (and less convenience foods).

Be sure to get some “light therapy”. Using special lights which simulate natural daylight can be effective in fighting depression. If you don’t have access to these lamps, take advantage of natural light therapy as often as the sun and the weather permit. If you happen to be lucky enough to live near a natural hot spring, take advantage of a sunny day and go soak in the hot water (this is beneficial just by itself!) and catch some vitamin D as a bonus.

Sometimes just the act of talking with someone helps lessen the burden of depression. Find someone you can confide in and take time to visit with them often. Let them know that you might need them to be available when you call. An excellent way to help make ourselves feel better is to reach out and help someone else. Volunteer at a local food bank, literacy program or school. Lending someone else a helping hand makes you feel better.

The oil blends of LeCherish, LeGrace, LeReconciliation, LeHeart Song, LeTranquility, LeWhispering Hope, Solitude, and Sanctuary are all effective oils to help lighten your burden and lift your spirits. Single oils which have shown to help include bergamot, ylang ylang, rose, neroli and jasmine.

Herbal preparations which might come in handy for boosting our moods and keeping depression at bay would include: KNA, MIN,NT, NV, NS, NVC, BBL, cayenne, damiana, gotu kola, dong quai, hops, catnip, chamomile, peppermint, St. John's wort, ginseng, valerian, lemon balm and wood betony.

Using a comprehensive approach which would integrate all or some of these ideas should help keep those winter blues away. One of the major keys in combating depression is to hit it early and to hit it hard.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover"
~Mark Twain~

LeAngel

INGREDIENTS: blue tansy, copaiba balsam, cedarwood, cistus, lavender, geranium, orange sweet, rose, rose geranium, ylang ylang

AFFINITY FOR: All of the energy centers (chakras), especially if the imbalance is the result of childhood abuse—absolutely amazing in this regard!

RESONANCE: emotional, spiritual

APPLICATION: LeAngel should be applied, diluted in a carrier oil, over the energy centers (chakras) or on the temples. It is very pleasant when diffused and can be used in a bath or worn as a perfume. LeAngel is a simple, yet beautiful fragrance.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: Use of this blend often brings memories of a time or place when one felt safe and loved. Often the person will wish to express these feelings or talk about a loved one from their past with whom they felt particularly loved, accepted, and safe.

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: LeAngel is specific for use in releasing traumatic memories connected to negative experiences of various kinds. It is particularly effective for feelings of insecurity, helplessness, and rage resulting from childhood abuse, both sexual and otherwise. Adults who were abused as children often feel confusion, anger at themselves, and misplaced guilt because “they let it happen”. LeAngel can bring them to a place of safety where they can acknowledge these feelings and sort through them. The releasing and processing of these memories has a cleansing effect on the stored anger that is often held in the liver meridian. LeAngel does not erase the memory of these events. It allows one to move through the anger, validate themselves, let go, and move forward rather than let past experiences dictate their actions and their decisions in the present.

LeAngel is helpful in the relief of anxiety and can protect us from the negative energy and unprocessed emotions of others. LeAngel is one of the best essential oil blends for stabilizing mood swings, especially in children.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: There are some behavior patterns and illnesses that are common to people who feel a lot of anger. This is true whether the roots of the anger lie in childhood abuse or in some other event or cause. Some of these physical symptoms are vascular headaches and migraines, high blood pressure, tension and stiffness in the neck and shoulders, muscle cramping, inflammation of the nerves, and distress in the gall bladder and liver. Because LeAngel helps to cleanse the liver, it can be of benefit in many of these ailments.

LeCrystal Clear

INGREDIENTS: basil, peppermint arvensis, peppermint piperita, rosemary, saro

AFFINITY FOR: brain, nervous system, brow chakra, solar plexus chakra, emotional balancing

RESONANCE: emotional, mental

APPLICATION: LeCrystal Clear can be applied on the brow, along the back of the neck, on the wrists, and on the temples. It is also useful diffused or placed, 1 or 2 drops only, in a bath. A few drops on a cotton ball placed next to you will help keep you alert and awake for a project that needs finishing.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: LeCrystal Clear diffused or inhaled clears and energizes the mind and increases mental alertness.

Emotional / MENTAL ASPECTS: This blend is very effective when studying or needing to remember difficult or complicated data. It helps to organize the thought processes, allowing more accurate recall later.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeCrystal Clear is nourishing to the nerves, the adrenal cortex, and the cardiovascular system. This is one of the best essential oil blends for the treatment of impending shock. LeCrystal Clear can help to balance hormones and bring relief from headaches that are associated with hormone imbalances.

GENERAL INFORMATION: There are three blends by Butterfly Express, llc, which help with mental alertness. These are LeCrystal Clear, LeFocus, and LeIQ.

LeThermaCare

INGREDIENTS: coriander, litsea cubeba, peppermint, yarrow

AFFINITY FOR: nervous system, fevers

RESONANCE: physical, emotional

APPLICATION: LeThermaCare should be diluted well and applied to the back of the neck and down the spine. It is also effective to apply LeThermaCare to the bottoms of the feet.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: It is better to apply this essential oil blend to the body. Diffusing might be pleasant but may not give you the results in fever reduction that you need.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeThermaCare was specifically designed to aid in gently reducing the very high fevers we often see with the high-powered and quick-onset flu “bugs” that are so prevalent in the world today. The use of this essential oil to reduce fever is especially nice with children. The essential oils contained in LeThermaCare are gentle. They stimulate the body’s defense while calming the nerves and soothing the spirit. In addition to the fever reducing properties of the yarrow and the peppermint, the coriander is well renowned for giving strength both during an illness and during the convalescent stages.

AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: Cedarwood is an excellent oil for meditation and clarity of mind. It reduces tension and promotes restful sleep. The aroma of cedarwood can help us realize when we are being self-righteous, rigid, or dogmatic in our opinions.

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Cedarwood was used traditionally by the Indian tribes of America to enhance spiritual communication. Like all conifer oils, cedarwood enhances feelings of security and protection. It helps us to feel, and return, the love of heaven. The aroma of cedarwood calms anger and relieves nervous tension. It quiets the mind that is going over and over the same details, analyzing and then analyzing again. Steadiness, integrity, and emotional stability are some of the great gifts of cedarwood oil.

Cedarwood strengthens the energy of the kidney meridian. Strength in this meridian gives us the will to stand firm when we have made a decision, even against persistent opposition. Cedarwood can give us strength in times of crisis as we stand strong, refusing to lose confidence or faith. This is an excellent oil to bolster us when we are going into strange or unfamiliar situations. Cedarwood oil has been shown effective in the treatment of ADHD because it stabilizes beta/theta waves.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Because it is mucolytic (dissolves mucous), cedarwood is useful for chest infections, asthma, and coughs. It it also soothing and healing to the skin, and especially, to the scalp. Cedarwood is often used for dandruff, hair loss, and psoriasis.

Cedarwood encourages lymphatic drainage and stimulates the breakdown of fat in the tissues. Mildly diuretic, cedarwood is used for cellulite and water retention. Decongestant, astringent, and anti-infective, cedarwood is useful for respiratory and urinary tract infections. Cedarwood is of benefit in any physical complaint where the underlying condition is coldness and dampness, physically or energetically. Valued as an insect repellent to be used around spices and other food items.

GENERAL INFORMATION: Cedarwood oil is very powerful at breaking up catarrh. This action of cedarwood oil is a fine example of the connections between the physical body and the more subtle (or energy) aspects of our systems. Just as surely as cedarwood will break up catarrh and phlegm in the physical body, it will remove the congestion and clutter that is clogging our minds and spirits.

CAUTIONS: Cedarwood should be avoided by pregnant women.

CAUTIONS: Rose geranium has mild hormonal properties; care should be used during pregnancy.
