I might do that aswell one day Wink

Right I'll do one recipe every week or so, eventually it should build up I think ^^

Second recipe- for anyone who suffers any kind or arthritis or general joint pain. I think it would work for muscle injuries too-

To a 100ml bottle of Sweet Almond oil add-

50 drops Chamomile Roman oil (Anthemis Nobilis)
35 drops Lavender oil (Lavandula Angustifolia or equivalent)
10 drops Rosemary oil (Rosmarinus Officinalis? Can't remember)
5 drops Eucalyptus oil (Eucalyptus Globulus)

Smaller amounts can be made up as long as the proportions remain the same (it's all about proportions in Aromatherapy ^^)

Hmm, this is all very intersting stuff I must say... but, wouldn't it cost quite a bit to buy all this stuff just for a few drops each? Wouldn't it just be a lot cheaper to go out and buy a bottle of aspirin to cure your joint pains or a bottle of cough syrup to cure that nasty cold?

It would, in the short run, but for long-term ease and health it tends to be better to get the supplies as you need them, and incorporate them into each of their different uses. Far better than buying a bottle of manufactured, half-tested chemical for every slightly different ailment you get, in my opinion- though I sometimes just use store-bought cures (freudian slip: I misspelled it curse... then curses) because I don't want to bother with figuring out what would be best. Also, some store-bought medications are pretty much just the effective chemicals or minerals in this sort of remedy, extracted and mixed into a couple grams of chalk (like unflavored stomach tablets, for example... [if you didn't get the joke, look up calcium carbonate]).

Indeed, and I usually choose the most cost-effective stuff, and these bottles will last at the least a few years (eucalyptus actually improves with age ^^) so you do get your money's worth, they are always there if you need to make a quick blend. And they are versatile too, you can cure many other things with the oils commonly available Smile

Essential oils- essences of herbs, flowers, fruit etc extracted from their source by various methods including steam distillation and solvent extraction. Usually it takes a huge amount of the plant to create a small bottle of essence, but the concentration of all that plant leads to a potent healing tool in many ailments (as long as you dilute them a bit, they can be very harsh on the skin)

More commonly used in aromatherapy, but starting to be more widely used in orthodox and pagan medicine.

Fast-acting Cold Remedy (nonalcoholic)
3/4 cup hot water
2-3 cc rice vinegar
10cc clover honey
3cc lemon juice
1 1/3 tsp red hot pepper sauce
1/2 cc concentrated Tabasco (red hot pepper sauce)

reheat in microwave with bag of green tea if cooled. Use spoon and teabag to stir up anything that settled to the bottom (DO NOT INHALE STEAM THROUGH NOSE!), and drink as quickly as possible without scalding self. Make sure to get the last remnants of pepper sauce and honey from teabag when finished drinking.

I tried this about four hours after drinking half a shot of Tabasco and generic red pepper sauce, when my sinuses started getting blocked again and my headache returned. I drank it in about a quarter hour, inhaling through my mouth and exhaling through my nose. I felt overheated and feverish/sweating for about eight minutes after finishing the drink, then felt much better, along with mostly-cleared sinises, no headfache, and no sign of cold-induced fatigue.

I'll update this if symptoms return anytime soon.

Right. Symptoms never returned, so I never updated it.
