TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “4 Essential Oils You Need in Your Home and How to Use Them”

4 Essential Oils You Need in Your Home and How to Use Them (2)

Essential oils are natural oils that are distilled from a flower, plant or herb. Essential oils hold therapeutic properties and also carry an extremely high vibration.

Essential oils not only smell delicious but they can also be used for a variety of purposes and can help heal the body on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Unlike perfume oils, essential oils are non toxic and are much better for the environment, making them a a superior choice to artificially scented candles.

Even just by putting a few drops of essential oil with water into a diffuser can fragrance your entire home without any nasty side effects.

If you are looking to get started with essential oils, here are 5 of the top oils you need to start with and how to use them-

1.) Lavender

Lavender essential oil has so many therapeutic benefits, but what it is most famous for is helping to reduce anxiety and promote calmness. Lavender is the perfect oil to use when you want to relax and unwind for the day. It can also help you to switch off your mind before going to bed.

For the best effects, combine a few drops of lavender oil with water into a clean spray bottle. Shake and then gently spray your pillow and bedding. You can also place a few drops of lavender oil onto a small towel and place it under your pillow for peaceful sleep all through the night.

2.) Peppermint

Peppermint essential oil is extremely invigorating and can help to sharpen all of your senses. Peppermint oil is also energising, which means that it can give you a great pick-me-up at any time of day. One of the most popular uses for peppermint oil however, is helping to relieve headaches and even migraines.

Simply dip the end of a tissue with 1-2 drops of essential oil and then place the tissue in the opposite nostril of your headache. So if your headache is on the left side of your head, place the tissue in your right nostril. If the headache is in the middle, you can place a tissue in each nostril. Keep the tissue in for around 5 minutes and your headache will be gone or dramatically reduced.

3.) Tea Tree

Tea Tree essential oil is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal making it a great oil to use around the home. Simply mix a few drops of tea tree essential oil with water and use as a great, non-toxic spray for counter tops and bathroom surfaces.

Tea Tree oil is also great for helping to relieve acne and even reduce the appearance of redness and scars. Add 1 drop of tea tree oil to coconut oil or another carrier oil and apply on your skin. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to avoid using this on your face.

4.) Sandalwood

Sandalwood is an extremely rare and expensive, so it often comes blended with other oils. Sandalwood essential oil has an extremely high vibration and is often used for spiritual healing and clearing of negative energy.

Just 1 drop of sandalwood oil on the back of the neck is said to ward off bad energies and can help to release any toxic build up in your aura. Sandalwood oil can also strengthen your aura and help to activate your third eye.

Sandalwood beads or mala beads are also great to use during meditation, however due to the rarity of the wood these can be hard to come by. If you can find any plain wooden beads, you can rub them with sandalwood essential oil for a similar effect.

S.D. WELLS: “The 7 most popular medicines that DON’T WORK”

Big Pharma

(NaturalNews) It’s bad enough to be sick and miserable, missing out on life, activities, work, school – or worse – vacation, but to be sick and then take medicine that either doesn’t work or makes matters worse, well, that’s just pouring salt in the wound. Yet, that’s exactly what most Americans do, day in and day out, thinking that they’re doing what’s best for themselves or their children, or worse, their babies. Even pregnant women are advised by medical doctors to take the wrong medications, and who would second guess someone who’s been to eight years of medical school? Actually, you should – that’s who.

Medical doctors know absolutely nothing about nutrition, and they’re trained to push and juggle chemical medications that cover up symptoms and bring their patients back for more “regular” checkups and “follow up” visits that not only cost you your money and time, but cost you your health. Plus, the mass media pushes all those same toxic medications that address only the symptoms of sicknesses, disguising the root problems and creating total health nightmares. Nearly every advertisement on TV, in popular magazines and in the newspapers, is for some corporate propaganda that pushes lab-made chemicals that should never be swallowed, rubbed on the skin – or much worse – injected with a needle into you or your baby’s muscle tissue.

Ask any Naturopath about the following seven medicines that don’t work, and you’ll probably hear the same advice. Western medicine is one big fraud, and has been for 100 years. The AMA, the CDC, the FDA and the ADA (American Dental Association) are run just like capitalistic businesses; they’re in it for profits and at the expense of their patients’ health. How long have you been a customer of the sick care industry? Cross check your medicine against this list of the most popular bogus chemical concoctions never meant to enter the human body:

#1. Over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription antihistamines.

#2. The flu shot – contains 25,000 times more mercury than is legally allowed in drinking water.

#3. All immunizations – contain known carcinogens that cause severe allergies and cancer.

#4. Blood thinners.

#5. SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)

#6. Chemotherapy – causes new cancers to develop in the body and cripples immunity.

#7. Antibiotics – kill all bacteria, good and bad, crippling immunity in the process.

The major problems with antihistamines, blood thinners and SSRIs

So, you’re probably asking what’s wrong with antihistamines, because for a few hours after you take some, you always feel a little bit better. Here’s what happens: The antihistamines shrink your membranes, retracting some of that mucus in your sinus cavities, in your throat, behind your eyes, and even shrinking the glands that produce it. That’s why you feel a little better, because that sinus headache dissipates and some of the pressure is relieved, plus you can breathe better for about three to four hours. But then comes the nightmare. You see, your body produces mucus to push out the problem, which could be allergens, bacteria, viruses, you name it. So what you’re doing by taking antihistamines is almost ensuring you get a sinus infection, or later, when it moves to your chest, a bronchial infection. You’re suppressing the body’s natural detoxification method, and keeping in the germs the mucus might have carried out. Oops. MDs love prescribing antihistamines, and the strong ones too, because it nearly guarantees you’ll be back with bigger problems – hence more money for them to pay the bills for their three-story homes, luxury vehicles, swimming pools and yachts.

Then there are the dreaded blood thinners, and since two out of every three Americans just can’t seem to stop eating sausages, steaks, hot dogs and margarine, what would seem to be the only “trade off?” Rat poison! Coumadin and Warfarin are dangerous drugs that cause people to bleed to death from basic little cuts and bruises. Both of these blood thinners weaken blood vessels and cells, and kill rats in clinical trials. Then, the moronic MDs tell everyone they’ve prescribed them to not to eat greens! Want a simple solution that’s natural? Take 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C daily, which coats the red blood cell walls and prevents them from breaking or bleeding. Also, vitamin E (about 400 IU daily) coats red blood cells and binds collagen in blood vessels, and that prevents strokes and bleeding. No MD will ever recommend these because they’re likely to lose their licenses to dish out chemical poison.

As for SSRIs, the worst thing someone suffering from depression or anxiety can do is to block their production of serotonin, and attempt to “regulate” its redistribution with chemicals. Prof. David Healy, the head of psychiatry at a hospital in the U.K. says the entire premise behind SSRIs and how they work is based on a myth. He warns that these drugs, which just so happen to promote suicidal and homicidal tendencies, have never been scientifically shown to balance anything in the brain whatsoever. So much for correcting “chemical imbalances” – that was all just some crafty marketing rather than laboratory testing or science-based research. It’s all just false hope and chemical-placebo effects, if you’re lucky. Want some real natural remedies for depression? Consider dark organic chocolate, mucuna dopa bean and St. John’s Wort.

Bottom line: If you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, seek out natural remedies, and avoid at all costs the most popular seven medicines that DON’T WORK.
