A Rich Man’s Trick

I saw this on OmegaShock’s website and decided to watch it. It is very long, but so very informative. There were things I’d never heard, some of which made my jaw drop, some of which made me want to vomit. It’s a history lesson unlike anything you’ve ever seen before! In the last 20 minutes, there was something regarding 9/11 that was utterly shocking to me. I’m not going to say what it was because I don’t want to ruin it for those of you who desire to watch this video.

Essential Oil for Carpal Tunnel

Since I mentioned yesterday about using essential oil on my sore wrists (likely carpal tunnel syndrome), I thought I would post what I use to ease that pain.

Carpal Tunnel Essential Oil

  • .5 oz. bottle

  • olive oil (or coconut oil or any whatever you desire)

  • 4 drops marjoram

  • 3 drops lavender

  • 2 drops eucalyptus

  • 2 drops lemongrass

  • 2 drops peppermint

Rub on wrists in a circular direction.

Homemade Room Freshener

One evening, hubby came home shortly after I had mopped the floor.  He commented on the smell, saying he really liked it.  However, it wasn’t what I used on the floor.  It was the essential oil mixture that I was using to ease the pain in my wrists from having having been doing way too much typing!  I decided to use those same oils and make a room freshener and it smells heavenly!

Homemade Room Freshener

  • Spray bottle  (I used a 16 oz. bottle)

  • Water

  • 10 drops marjoram oil

  • 10 drops lavender oil

  • 5 drops eucalyptus oil

  • 8 drops lemongrass oil

  • 5 drops peppermint oil

Add water to the spray bottle, leaving enough room to add the oils.  Add more water to fill the bottle when done.  Shake well before using.
