Did you know? The Lemon tree is a native of south-east Asia and it was introduced to Italy about 1500 years ago. From Italy its cultivation spread throughout the Mediterranean and other parts of the world. The greenish-yellow oil is expressed from the rind of the fruit.

Indigestion is painful and it can be crippling. It can be brought on by a variety of things including worry, distress, rushing food and not chewing, or a lack of muscle tone in the stomach walls.  
Try this remedy, 1 drop of peppermint essential oil in a teaspoon of honey. It works wonders, you can also add some warm water to it and make a honey peppermint tea.

WART ELIMINATOR ... Lemon essential oil is a magical remedy for getting rid of warts. Put it neat on the wart once in the morning and once in the evening ... in about a week your wart should have dissapeared .... :) Try it ! and I would love to hear from you about how it worked for you.

Ancient Egypt; The Egyptians took personal hygiene seriously, as shown by the earliest recorded recipe for a body deodorant in the Papyrus Ebers of 1500 BC.
The Egyptian priests used aromatic substances not only for embalming their pharoah's but they were used also by the priests in their role as "psychiatrists" fro treating manias, depression and nervousness.
Many of these oils used came from China and India, where there is evidence that they were already in use for a thousand or more years before the Pharoah's.

EUCALYPTUS OIL; Eucalyptus has been distilled from at least 1788 when two doctors, John White and Dennis Cossiden, distilled Eucalyptus piperata for its use in treating chest problems and colic. This happened in Australia where the Blue Mountains of New South Wales were so called because of the extraordinary blue haze that exuded from the resin of the eucalyptus gum tree and which envelopes the entire landscape. In such a powerfully aromatic environment the medicinal qualities of this ancient tree would be hard to miss ! Eucalyptus is a marvelously versatile oil, it cools the body in Summer and protects it in Winter. It is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibiotic, diruetic, analgesic and deodorising. Research has also proved it's anti-viral properties as well. It is best known for it's effectiveness against coughs and colds but it is equally effective against cystitis, candida, diabetes and sunburn. This oil is also well known in vetinary care for treatment as an insect repellant. This is a great oil to keep at home as a basic for your first aid kit.

Add 1 drop of peppermint, lime, mandarin, lemon, orange or ylang-ylang essential oils. For a romantic mousse, use 1 drop of rose or 1 drop of lime essential oil to 600ml of mousse.
