It must be the energy of removing old energy because I am on a cleaning spree. I just had the carpets and rug cleaned at The Crystal Garden. It sure does make for a nice ritual to clean out the old before the New Year. I love the feeling of things being fresh and clean. I've got to get around to making that happen at my house too!
My sweetheart is starting to recover from a cold/flu. It gave me the opportunity to nurture which I love to do and he is a willing recipient. I made chicken soup which always makes the house smell so good. And speaking of things smelling good, I used quite a bit of aromatherapy on him too. First, Auntie M's Anti. It's my personal blend that I created a few years ago because a friend of mine couldn't kick her flu. It was the creation of this and a few other aromatherapy blends that helped in coining the nickname, "Magic Margaret." Auntie M's Anti has oils that are anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-septic, anti-fungus and anti-anything-that's-not-good-for you! I always use it on the airplane by putting it under my nose on a hankie or tissue. It's calming and anti-everything!
I continued to use quite a bit of aromatherapy. My naturopath friend taught me that putting the essential oil on the souls of your feet is effective in getting it through your system. Other oils to use for colds are ravensara, eucalyptus, thyme, and there are many more. I will be teaching an Aromatherapy Course at The Crystal Garden in February.
Well, I think it's time to watch a movie and rest for a change. Rest and relaxation . . . hmmmmm . . . a novel idea!
