Default Update on Tea...

Okay,

I have been trying different amounts with the tea I brew, and I think I got it near perfect... at least for me. I can actually feel it working as I am drinking it about 10 minutes in. Here is how I brew my tea now:

2-3 Teaspoon Organic White Willow bark for every 32 ounces of water
4 Teaspoon Organic Chamomile for every 32 ounces of water
2 Teaspoon Organic Lemon Balm for every 32 ounces of water
1x Dash Teaspoon 90k Organic Cayenne powder for every 32 ounces of water
1x Tad Teaspoon Organic Ginger powder for every 32 ounces of water
1x Pinch Teaspoon Organic Cinnamon powder for every 32 ounces of water
4-6 Black Peppercorn for every 32 ounces of water

NOTE:
Pinch = 1/16
Dash = 1/12 (mine is 1/12, others may be closer to 1/8)
Tad = 1/4

Default Epsom Salt

Two days ago was the first day I had no ghost pain. My whole body felt relaxed for the 20 minutes I had of soaking. Sad to say as soon as I came out I did not feel so relaxed anymore.

Anyway, I have been trying different Epsom salts, and the one that works for me is from San Francisco Salt Co., i.e. http://www.sfsalt.com/pure-epsom-salt. I buy the big 19.75 lb. bag and add 2 cups to warm bath water, then soak for 20 minutes or so before returning to reality.

Default 2nd update on Tea

I have also been adding approx. 1 Teaspoon of Calendula Flowers to every 32 ounces of water as well. I do this as a replacement for the Arnica Flowers I bought and was going to use before realizing that too much Arnica is not such a good idea.

I try not to put too much more than 1 Teaspoon because the taste can be overbearing if you put too much more than that. Anyway, it is a great tasting tea. Like I mentioned before, it kind of has a Tazo Chai Spice taste to it, almost exactly to me... but mine is all organic. I know they label theirs as organic but I do not always trust labels. My family likes to be in control of what we put in to our stomachs.

Besides, if you study seasonal spraying, organic crops can still use round-up in-between yields and off season. I have confirmed this from multiple sources when I called different companies that work with wheat and grains. They just cannot spray during growing season. Some avoided the question altogether and gave a round-a-bout response to where in the end they simply did not know for positive. If i ever find out that Mountain Rose Herbs falls into this category I am off to find another company. But, for now they are safe so far as I know.

Default My Essential Oil Blend

First, I was hesitant to post anything about this because I was at one point wanting to try and sell the blend... since I have been out of work now for almost three years. I am trying to get back to work, and this was something I was looking into selling since it works so well. This will be the first time mentioning it to anyone other than my immediate family. However, I am going to hold off for now on mentioning the exact dilution ratio overall, and how much of each essential oil was added to make the overall dulution ratio.

Basically, this is not a blend that you want to use everyday. It is a blend that helps with deep muscular pain, nerve pain, and bruising. I only use it as needed when I really hurt, or for bruising (such as my gardening yesterday). I am sure you can use it more often if the dilution ratio is only 2-3% Essential Oils, but I do not find blends that effective until you get to a certain ratio, depending on what essential oils you are working with.

This blend works, as partly mentioned, for muscular pain, bruising, neuralgia, neuropathy; and is classified as an anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, anti-spasmodic, analgesic, adaptogenic, stimulating, astringent, sedative, nervine, vasoconstrictor, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal.

Also, there are varying degrees of essential oils of the same oil depending on the region of which it is harvested. Not all regions are equal in effectiveness. One last thing I look for in a top essential oil (Have researched over 20 vendors by emailing, calling, etc.) is making sure they have each organic essential oil certified from an independent third party testing facility, After what I found, I will not trust internal testing results from companies claims that no one else can test like they can, etc. Two companies I do not like are doTERRA and Young Living. I will let what I found through my research lay as it is, but one thing to note is the quality in which they claim is not any better, and even less in some cases, than where I purchase mine from Eden Botanicles. This makes them over hyped and over priced for what you are getting.

I called companies from the U.S. and Canada mainly, and in the end Eden Botanicles gives you more options ranging from Non-organic, organic, to wild crafted; is tested thoroughly by an independent entity and certified with a Certificate of Analysis or COA, provides a safety data sheet, and all at a good price point.

So, without further ado, here is my blend (with limited information, i.e. dilution of each essential oil is not listed... only what essential oil is used).

Bottle: 100ml Violet Color w/ 2.0mm Orifice Cap

Blend Size: 3.25 oz.

Base Ingredients (Infused): Organic Almond Sweet Oil, Organic Chamomile Flowers, Organic Arnica Flowers, Organic St. John's Wort

Essential Oil Blend
: Myrrh, Somalia - Wild; Geranium, Egypt - Organic; Helichrysum, Croatia - Organic; Juniper Berry, Bulgaria - Organic; Clary Sage, Bulgaria - Organic; Cypress Leaf, France - Organic; Peppermint, India - Organic; Yarrow (Blue), Bulgaria - Organic; Ylang Ylang Complete, Comoros

Default Tea for colds / flu

Well, my son decided it was a good idea after service, Sunday the 14th, to put a little babies hand in his mouth. Ergh. My wife and I knew what was coming next because that child was sick with a cold.

And then Tuesday the 16th came, and my son ends up with a fever, gunk, a lot of snot, and it hung on for a good 4 days or so. But, not before it went to my youngest son, then my wife, then my daughter, and now me. Like I told my wife, "I just can't catch a break can I"? Oh well.

I brew a tea for our colds, etc. and it changes depending on the degree of how sick we are. Right now I have a lot of drainage, sinus headache, gunk, it is hard to breathe at times, sore throat, and I have a low grade fever. Nothing too serious, just annoying.

Here is what I just brewed. It helped the rapid drainage, and my sore throat is not hurting at the moment. The big bonus... I do not have to blow my nose every 30 seconds. I would say it is a win. However, I will experiment more with other herbs I have. I do have echinacea and thyme, so I will add that tomorrow; and I will add the white willow bark if I still have a sinus headache to help with the pain. I just did not have time (thyme) tonight to get everything out, I need to get extra sleep.

4 Teaspoon Organic Chamomile for every 32 ounces of water
2 Teaspoon Organic Lemon Balm for every 32 ounces of water
1 Teaspoon Organic Raspberry Leaf for every 32 ounces of water
1 Teaspoon Organic Peppermint Leaf for every 32 ounces of water
1/2 Teaspoon Organic Nettle Leaf for every 32 ounces of water
1x Dash Teaspoon 90k Organic Cayenne powder for every 32 ounces of water
2x Tad Teaspoon Organic Ginger powder for every 32 ounces of water
1x Dash Teaspoon Organic Cinnamon powder for every 32 ounces of water
6-8 Black Peppercorn for every 32 ounces of water

Adding Tomorrow maybe (depends on if I am still this bad or not):

2-3 Teaspoon Organic White Willow bark for every 32 ounces of water
1/2 Teaspoon Organic Echinacea for every 32 ounces of water
1/4 Teaspoon Organic Thyme for every 32 ounces of water

NOTE:
Pinch = 1/16
Dash = 1/12 (mine is 1/12, others may be closer to 1/8)
Tad = 1/4

Edited:

I COULD NOT WAIT. I WANT SLEEP TONIGHT. So right after I posted this, I shut down the laptop, walked past our pantry, and then turned around and pulled out some more herbs to brew. I do not think I can sleep with this sinus headache. So, I added 8 ounces back into my tea pot, since I drank 8 out of the 32 ounces just moments ago. I was going to refrigerate the leftover for tomorrow, but I am going to have more tonight. Then I added White Willow Bark, Echinacea, Thyme, and Elder Flowers to my previous brew. So, here is my final brew (this was the only tea I made today):

4 Teaspoon Organic Chamomile for every 32 ounces of water
2 Teaspoon Organic Lemon Balm for every 32 ounces of water
1 Teaspoon Organic Raspberry Leaf for every 32 ounces of water
1 Teaspoon Organic Peppermint Leaf for every 32 ounces of water
1/2 Teaspoon Organic Nettle Leaf for every 32 ounces of water
2 Teaspoon Organic White Willow bark for every 32 ounces of water
1 Teaspoon Organic Echinacea for every 32 ounces of water
1 Teaspoon Organic Elder Flowers for every 32 ounces of water
1/4 Teaspoon Organic Thyme for every 32 ounces of water
1x Dash Teaspoon 90k Organic Cayenne powder for every 32 ounces of water
2x Tad Teaspoon Organic Ginger powder for every 32 ounces of water
1x Dash Teaspoon Organic Cinnamon powder for every 32 ounces of water
6-8 Black Peppercorn for every 32 ounces of water

I only have 5 minutes more to wait.......

2nd Edit:

Disclaimer / Be forewarned: This is not your run of the mill store bought tea labeled for cold and flu. This is home brewed, and it is going to pull the gunk out of your lungs, and it might give you a a few moments of a hack fest as it just did me. I already knew this but I forgot to state it above. Also, the tension in my temples is now minor, so I am going to hurry off to bed now.
