Okay, I am in my late 50's and sometimes you just have to try something new. I have a precious friend who came over the other day and brought treasures. Yes treasures. She had 2 brown paper bags with her, one held some different kinds of teas. Yes, I do drink tea, many different kinds however, the one I drink most often is peppermint. But, I am not too old to try a new flavor and see if I like it. But, I digress, the real story is about what was in the other bag and how it impacted my life. Now as you may have gathered if you know me or have spent much time on my website, I don't sit much. This particular day, I was in for a rare treat. For about a month I have been dealing with an area on the outside of my left foot that is so sore by the time I get ready to go to bed that I can't lay that side on the bed. Well, this special lady came armed and she did not even know what I was dealing with. I call that listening to God. In the other bag she had brought essential oils in order to give me a foot massage. The oils she brought were Lemongrass and Marjoram. Both of these oils help with pain and have a cleansing effect on the body. I don't know how long she worked on my feet but I know it was at least 30 minutes. Wow, did that feel good and really helped me realize the problem might not be a bone out of place at all. When she finished that she brought out the toenail polish. Now this is the are where I have never gone before. She brought 3 different colors for me to pick from. As the picture above shows I picked kind of a bronze color. It happened to also go really well with the blouse I had on that day. I never would have painted my toenails before that day. I discovered that I really like my toenails painted. Sooooooooo I am thinking I have learned something about myself that was really a shock. You see I only let her paint my toenails because she is a precious friend. Ah, sometimes you just have to bend a little only to discover it was a really good experience. Thank you for the blessing you are in my life. It was wonderful
As I travel along the highway God has selected for me I realize there are so many things for me to learn. I see so many missed opportunities to share the things that God is teaching me on this journey. If you know me you know reflexology, essential oils, naturopathic medicine are all a part of where I am. These are areas that I want to grow competent in because they are important to all of us. Many of the things I know I have learned because of things that have happened to me or somebody I know. I need to start documenting these things and sharing them with you as I go through the process. I need to start taking pictures of the beginnings and endings so you can see the way it works. Some very important lessons were not documented in this way upfront so they will be shared verbally.
How many of you have ever had a wart? Well, in my late 50's and I got my first ever wart this year (2013). It was on the back of my thigh, yep, right where I could easily see it. I could not believe it. The first place I turned was my cabinet that hold the most used essential oils. Oh such a dilemma. With no first hand knowledge I began sorting through and settled on Marjoram. I use this essential oil for a lot of different things, pain, muscle spams, hemorrhoids, fungus, viruses, etc. I put a drop on my finger and put it on the wart. By the next day I could see it was drying the top of it. Now what do you know about warts?? They go deep and it is a process to get rid of one. I used Marjoram for a couple of days twice a day, then began doing some research on which oils were the best for this. Basil, oregano, and lemon grass were on the list. I knew from experience that these oils burn when applied straight. Oregano was the one I picked because it was handy. I applied it straight knowing if it was more than I could tolerate it could be diluted with lotion or oil. Wow!! There was a mini, massive fire on my leg but I toughed it out knowing it would only last a few minutes. In order for this to work everything I had read said it had to be applied on a daily basis for 14 days. Even when it appeared to be gone I continued to apply it to make sure all of it was gone. I so wish I had taken pictures as I went through the process so you could actually see what it looks like as it begins to die. I am hoping to get better at posting pictures so you can see beginning pictures through the healing process.
