LeBreezey

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: While generally thought of as an oil for physical illness, the aroma of LeBreezey lifts the spirits and brings a sense of confidence and self-worth.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeBreezey, besides being very effective in times of illness, is an excellent respiratory tonic and immune stimulant. The inclusion of ravensara oil creates viral fighting and tissue rebuilding properties, especially for the lung and bronchial tissues. This blend should also be tried for colds, asthma, allergies, sinus congestion, and flu. LeBreezey makes an excellent muscle relaxant and pain reliever when you do not have LeWarmDown or LeDeeper handy and you have strained a muscle.

GENERAL INFORMATION: LeBreezey is often used alternately with LeAspire.

LeInsideOut

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeInsideOut improves the function of the digestive system. It helps with upset stomach, belching, bloating, stomach cramps, heartburn, constipation, and diarrhea. LeInsideOut's ability to be effective for both constipation and diarrhea may seem odd; it is not. Natural remedies work with the body to return systems to balanced and healthy states. They are not the administration of an "opposing" remedy or force. This is true in every aspect of the body and mind when working with natural healers.

LeInsideOut should be used for any bout of intestinal flu or food poisoning. It is useful for most types of nausea, either by inhaling the aroma or putting a drop behind each ear. This blend should be applied over the abdomen for colon problems and for candida overgrowth.

LeJourney

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: LeJourney gives us a sense of harmony with ourselves and an increased ability to learn from the experiences of our lives.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: LeJourney is comprised of essential oils mentioned in the Bible (see Exodus, chapter 30). It is strongly antiviral and is used to expel disease and dead tissue from the body. LeJourney is an immune stimulant and is effective against colds and flu.

Eucalyptus

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: The emotional qualities of all eucalyptus varieties are similar, but this one is preferred by many for use in meditation and energy work.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: This eucalyptus is used much the same as the globulus variety but it is reputed to be less likely to irritate the skin when used repeatedly for sore muscles. Radiata has a high percentage of cineole, also known as eucalyptol. This is the component believed to relieve colds and congestion.

Palmarosa

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Sometimes, in an attempt to cover insecurities within ourselves or to cover past hurts, we hold onto to situations or people so tightly that they feel they must struggle to be free. Palmarosa helps us to embrace change and let go. Since we live in an ever changing world, there are many times when we must let go of the old way of doing and being in order to move forward and grow. If we are constantly "letting go and letting God" direct our lives for our good, we will not just be changing, we will be growing toward the best we can be. Our success and happiness will be inevitable and assured.

Palmarosa can help us enjoy being versatile and adaptable as we move through the changes that life always brings. This strength within oneself reduces stress and tension and eliminates the sort of nervous exhaustion that resisting life creates. If you have already exhausted yourself in the struggle against change, try palmarosa - or blends containing it - to balance and strengthen yourself. The lovely aroma of this essential oil promotes recovery and strengthens resolve.

Spruce

EMOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: Spruce (and other conifers) create the symbolic effect of an umbrella which protects the earth and brings energy in from the universe. At night the animals of the forest lie down under a conifer tree for the protection and rejuvenation that the tree will provide for them. Spruce grounds the solar plexus and stimulates the thymus, creating the emotional balance necessary to be gracious at both giving and receiving. Spruce can help us push through emotional blocks to further healing.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of spruce make it beneficial for bone pain, aching joints, arthritis, and sciatica. Spruce should be massaged wherever sore muscles need relaxing and re-energizing. Spruce is an excellent oil for the respiratory and endocrine systems.

Catnip

(Nepeta cataria)

PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Catnip is primarily known for its insect repellent properties. It has also been shown to be effective in deterring underground insects such as termites. Catnip oil is antispasmodic. It is effective in treatments for all forms of cramps. It is useful in relaxing tight or strained muscles.

Catnip balances the flow of bile throughout the digestive system, making it a very good remedy for anyone suffering with abdominal pain caused by gas in the stomach or intestines. Catnip oil also promotes urination and helps the body to maintain proper water balance in the cells and tissues. Catnip is stimulating and toning to the entire system, but like many herbal remedies and essential oils, it also acts as a sedative.

Basil
(Ocimum basilicum)
PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Basil stimulates the adrenal cortex and strengthens the nerves, making it beneficial for mental fatigue, headaches, insomnia, fainting, loss of the sense of smell, memory loss, and poor concentration. Basil strengthens the digestive function, being of particular use with hiccups, flatulence, indigestion, and vomiting. Basil has strong antispasmodic and expectorant properties. It calms muscle spasms from injury or fatigue and alleviates coughs.

Clove
(Syzgium aromaticum)
The aroma of clove is, literally, heart-warming. It helps us to look away from ourselves and our own needs, so we can see the needs of family members and friends. Clove helps us translate this "seeing" into practical, every day living and giving. Clove bud oil lifts depression, leaving behind a feeling of optimism and lightness.
EXTRACTED FROM - https://butterflyexpressions.org/information/singles/Clove

Rosemary
(Rosmarinus officinalis)
Rosemary balances heart function and energizes the solar plexus. Rosemary is specific for people who are usually vibrant, organized, industrious, and sensitive. They have become apathetic due to dwelling on perceived hurts or injustices.
EXTRACTED FROM - https://butterflyexpressions.org/information/singles/Rosemary

Tarragon
(Artemisia dracunculus)
Tarragon helps us to draw in the energy of life that is all around us. It fosters more than just the desire for health or the will to live; it inspires us to seek for, and find, energy enough (and some to spare) for us to accomplish all that we desire.
EXTRACTED FROM - https://butterflyexpressions.org/information/singles/Tarragon

Thyme 
(Thymus zygis)
Thyme is revitalizing and nourishing to the nerves and emotions. It can help us overcome mental and emotional exhaustion, inability to concentrate, apathy, and uneasy feelings that have no cause. Thyme can aid us in finding a fresh view of a situation or a new way of doing something.
EXTRACTED FROM - https://butterflyexpressions.org/information/singles/Thyme

Vetiver
(Vetivera zizanioides)
Vetiver is a useful oil for emotional and energy work. It helps us connect the past to the present, learning from the things we have experienced and using the present to heal the past. Vetiver builds bridges between our memories and experiences, our mental capacities, and our physical bodies.

LeUnDone

MOTIONAL / SPIRITUAL / MENTAL ASPECTS: A physical scar is created when a wound does not heal properly; an emotional scar forms for the same reason. The area of the body that is refusing to relinquish and heal scar tissue can give us clues as to what emotional wounding we may also be hanging onto. The oils comprising this blend address a wide spectrum of emotional issues and can help us reach a level of understanding where further healing can be achieved.

Lyme's Disease

By Sharon Moran

Lyme's Disease is becoming more prevalent. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that 300,000 cases were reported last year. This represents a 25-fold increase. More troubling is that the disease, which was mainly rampant in the northeast, is spreading outward, across the United States into the interior of the continent.

Deer are usually blamed for spreading the ticks which are infected with Lyme's Disease. However, recent research shows that it is actually rodents, mice in particular, that account for the bulk of infection.

Ticks are not born with the bacteria that produce Lyme's Disease. They pick these spirochetes up when they attach and feed on an infected host. Ticks feeding on mice are 75-95% likely to become infected. Ticks feeding on deer only have a 1% chance of becoming infected.

While ticks transmit most of the Lyme's Disease reported in this country, the bacteria can also be spread by other biting and blood-sucking insects. This list includes mosquitoes, spiders, fleas, and mites.

Symptoms of Lyme's Disease usually start with a recurring fever and unrelenting fatigue. Often headaches and migraines along with aching muscles and joints also occur. If left untreated the progression of the disease continues to muscle spasms, loss of coordination, intermittent paralysis, meningitis and heart involvement.

The bacteria which causes Lyme's Disease is called B. Burgdorferi. It is shaped like a corkscrew which allows it to burrow into the body's tissues and effectively "hide" from antibiotics. Lyme's Disease is also called the "great imitator" because it can mimic many other disorders including multiple sclerosis (MS), arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, ALS, ADHD, and even Alzheimer's Disease.

This elusive bacteria can make blood testing for Lyme's Disease difficult. This strain of bacteria is capable of infecting your white blood cells. If your white blood cells are infected, they will not respond appropriately to the infection. This makes it very difficult to detect in the blood when a blood test is performed. In fact, the worse your infection is, the less likely it will be to show up in a given blood test. Often patients, with nothing showing in a blood test, are unable to find any reason why these symptoms are occurring.

As with any natural protocol, you treat the totality of symptoms, not the disease. You treat a person by the symptoms they are demonstrating at the time as well as trying to eradicate the bacteria infestation. Some of the very best anti-bacterial essential oil blends are LeDeliverance, LeInsight, LeMelaPlus, LePurify, and LeSunburst.

The old adage "An ounce of prevention is worth of a pound of cure," comes to mind when dealing with ticks and the transmission of Lyme's Disease.

To repel insects including ticks and mosquitoes the essential oil blend LeAway is most beneficial. LeAway should be diluted in water or Miracle II Neutralizer and applied, either by misting or rubbing on, just as you would with any other insect repellent. You can also spray the diluted solution on clothing and on the bottoms of pant legs, sleeves, and hats, being careful to avoid contact with the eyes.

Rose Geranium and Palmarosa, mixed with a carrier oil, can also be effective in repelling ticks.

Other things to help prevent exposure:
1. Avoid tick-infested areas. Don't sit on logs or wooden stumps.
2. Tuck your pants into your socks to prevent access to your legs.
3. Wear long sleeved pants and shirts.
4. Be sure to check for ticks once you return inside. Early removal
is important.

If you do find a tick, how to remove the tick is vital. There are many videos available showing the proper technique. LePurify or Thyme essential oil can be effective to back a tick out once it has latched on. Use Lavender on the injection site every 5 minutes for a little while to help prevent infection and swelling.

The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.
