While gardening three days ago, sprained the middle joint of my middle finger. It HURT! At first, assumed the sudden pain was due to a cactus spine stuck in my gardening glove. But by early evening…as the pain increased, and the finger stiffened with swelling and bruising, I became concerned it was sprained or may somehow have been fractured?

A sprained finger most often is experienced as a sudden onset of pain during activity. (With a ligament tear, an audible snap or pop might be heard at the time of injury.) [Read more…]

Lavender Lemonade

by Cynthe on May 11, 2016

Essential oils are DELIGHTFUL in your cooling summer drinks! Here’s a refreshing Lavender Lemonade recipe to try when temperatures rise to sweltering.

lavender lemonade in chilled glassesLAVENDER LEMONADE Recipe

  • 7 Organic Lemons, peeled and juiced
  • 2 Organic Limes, peeled and juiced
  • 1 drop pure 100% Lavender Essential Oil* (no more!!)
  • 14 cups filtered Water
  • 1-1/2 cups Organic Agave Syrup

Mix all ingredients together, heat gently if needed to blend in agave syrup. Taste. Add more water or Agave syrup to the Lavender Lemonade, depending on the size and tartness of the citrus fruits.

Chill before serving. Garnish with whole lemon slices and a sprig or sprinkle of culinary lavender.

*NOTE: Be careful not to add more than a single drop of Lavender essential oil or it will overpower your lemonade.

If you would like the slightly pink hue shown in the photograph, infuse culinary lavender into the water by boiling it for several minutes, bring to room temperature before adding the rest of the lemonade ingredients.

I had a soft, painless, swelling on my right thumb for many years… on the outer surface and centrally located just above the joint. My Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner thought it may have been a reaction to chronic overuse. It may also have been a reaction to habitual tension that I hold in my fingers […]

A cloud of scalding, concentrated steam enveloped three fingers of my right hand. Instant, intense PAIN! Burned badly, I dropped the pot on the stovetop, turning towards the sink to […]

In late February, a client from 2009 called for a clinical (medical) aromatherapy consultation. She wondered if essential oils dissolve fatty tumors? She had 2 lipomas growing on her arms. (Lipomas are non-malignant fatty tumors…often genetic, her mother has them, too.) One was getting sore to touch…worrying her. Standard Medical ‘Treatment’ for Lipomas Is one […]
