About nine years ago I noticed a little harmless lump of fat grow on my right shoulder and was told that was a sebaceous cyst and that I could get it removed with a simple surgical procedure if it was painful or would become bigger. Over the years, it grew to a sizable lump.
In November 2010 I put on some hot Ricinus communis (Castor) oil pack for few minutes to help to break down any inflammation and promote lymphatic waste removal. Also, I prepared the following balm. In a 20 ml carrier oil blend - Ricinus communis (Castor) oil, Nigella sativa (Blackseed) oil, Oenothera biennis (Evening Primerose) oil, Calendula officinalis (Calendula) oil, Azadirachta indica (Neem) oil - I added a 5% dilution of Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) leaf oil and Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) oil. In the balm I also included 5 gr. of Leptospermum scoparium (Manuka) honey. Read more...

Rosemary: Cardinal Oil for Upward Direction
There are 4 major directions when working on clients: Upward and Outward corresponding to Yang energy (as with Rosemary and Lavender), Inward and Downward- correlating to Yin (as with Myrrh and Spikenard)
To understand the directionality of Essential Oils, it is important to know the temperature and the depth that oils will penetrate into the body — or in terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Wei, Ying or Yuan levels. It is also important to understand how and where the plants from which the oils are obtained grow. Understanding these basics help us to accurately predict and anticipate the desired effect. As this is the first blog in a series, we will begin with the Upward direction. Read more ...

Chakras and Your Physical and Emotional Health with Alexandria Brighton
About the Teleseminar
Chakras are often misunderstood and seen as Eastern esoteric philosophy considered by many to be irrelevant to our Western world of healthcare. Nothing could be further from the truth. The chakras as well as the meridian system represent another circulatory system just as important to the welfare of the body as the heart and blood vessels or the lymphatic system.
Each chakra provides chi or life force and nourishes and influences the organs, muscles, ligaments, veins, and other systems within its area of activity. Because the Chakra system uses bioelectrical Information and vibrational frequency, essential oils of exceptional purity are the perfect remedy and nourishment for this system. When the chakras are not functioning at their optimum we will not experience our full potential for health and wellbeing. Each chakra will be discussed as well as the essential oils that support, nourish and remedy each chakra. You will come away with a better understanding of the importance chakras play in your overall health and quality of life.
