Boo-Boo Sticks

Rosemary Bush

A few months ago I began a weird journey. What you ask? Well I was allergic to almost all medications. Nice right! So if I took high blood pressure medications my blood pressure became higher, etc.  Finally the specialist said "stop taking medications". So I did. I take a couple but have had to look for alternative methods for some problems. I already used a few things to help me be healthier but now I had to really search. As you know I have had  Breast Cancer and Thyroid Cancer and had the treatments that went with those; operations, chemo, radiation and iodine radiation. And those treatments have left me with a few problem too. But they saved my life so we know they were necessary and I am so thankful for the help from the medical community. 

Pain medications raise my blood pressure and gave me asthma. So what have I found to replace them? Essential oils. I have some recipes I use a lot. My favorites for pain are numerous but I like lavender, lemongrass, wintergreen, clove, peppermint  and more. I do use a very good pure and organic brand doTerra. It is self tested with every batch of oils made.  

I have always had asthma so I have found oils that help with that. I mix a few and put them in boo-boo sticks which are a roller bottle. I choose the oils that will help with asthma, bronchitis, flu/colds and my immune system. I rub them on the places that need help. I roll them in my hands, rub them together and inhale them for a while. I always put them on the bottom of my feet. Then I roll some on my thumb and stick it to the top of my mouth and let it absorb into my system that way. It works for me and stops my sneezing and coughing immediately. 

And the boo-boo stick is so fun and easy and came to us via my niece who lives in France now. What oils do I use for these problems? Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Rosemary, Grapefruit Seed, Lemon, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Frankincense, etc. What is the etc.? Orange oil is awesome and if you put it in a diffuser it smells wonderful. I put the drops in a roller bottle add a carrier oil, coconut or  grape or almond oil and you have a boo-boo stick. Easy peasy. 

And can you imagine for little kids how fun to have their own Boo-Boo Stick with Lavendar and melaluca,  etc. to make their owies better. :)

“And if we die before our journey’s through.. all is well”

That is surely a depressing title and I know I owe you an explanation.

I have loved reading The Hole In The Ceiling Blog  this last little while. In fact I printed the whole story out so that I could read it at night before I went to bed. Jane's husband died of Cancer and left her with two young boys. She talks of what a horrible experience it was and her feelings have given me a better insight into saying the proper things to someone who has lost something so important to them whether the death of a spouse or a job and a home.

I have been praying for a sweet young mother that I go to church with that has battled Cancer for a while now. She also has an adorable young husband that cherishes her and two young boys. What a coincidence...well maybe not.

I thought that hope was one of the best things that I could give her besides prayer. But the hope turned into reality for us all this week and she is dying. I still pray for her, her boys and her husband that the angels will be with them to buoy them up in the times of their sorrow. Her pain is in her back because the Cancer has attacked her spine. The medicine has taken most or some of the pain away.

Last evening I took dinner to an older lady that I go to church with that is honestly one of the cutest little things I have ever met. She leads the music and what a treat that has been to watch her. She has been down with horrible pain in her back. Her spine is very disjointed. Thankfully she has been rescued from most of the fierce pain with medication. We all have been praying for her that her pain could be alleviated.

Today after I had been up awhile my back starting killing me. It has hurt me the last few days but today it was horrible. I have had seven babies and I can tell you that this pain was as bad if not worse than I've ever had.  I don't know why but I do know that tonight I have true empathy for my sweet friends that have had pain so much worse than mine.

The Lord hold you in the hallow of His Hands, my dear friends. xoxoxo
