Tears

Aug 18th, 2014 Posted in Healing Ways | no comment »

Tears are needed at times to clear everything from your system

And tears are there for the good times and the bad times; helping you to get back to your center in life.

It is a cleansing mechanism that your body has to clear out the toxins and wastes.

It seems like a medical way of talking about tears, and some people believe that you should hold back tears and not let anything bother you.

I find that just the opposite is true; I  need to talk about good and bad things in life; and the perfect things that happen bring about tears. Examples include the birth of a child. How can something so perfect happen to human beings?

Every once in a while I listen to the silence of things. That is why I grow herbs. They silently help me, and along the way I get to enjoy their potent smells and medicinal ways!

When I was younger I felt like I never had silence in my life. I always had children around me, making noise and chattering! I loved to hear their tiny voices and still enjoy it when I am with my grandchildren.
The difference now is that I also enjoy the silence. Not having to speak early in the day is one of my favorite times.
And in the summertime I can sit on my back porch and just be; watching my herbs and greeting the sunny days.

Growing in the Summertime is so much fun!

Here are a few of my greener than green things!

 

 

I plant a few things in the spring to get in touch with my healthy side of life in the summer. This year I planted basil, 2 kinds, a purple basil and green. The purple does not taste differently, but smells and looks intense. And the darker the leafs the more nutritious it is, so purple basil has more vitamins.

Take a look at your Local Farmer’s Market this weekend for some herbs. I buy them in pots to grow and dried herbal wonders at the market.

Your locals can help you find what you need!

I love herbs. I cook with them, I grow some, especially sage and basil. I also feel that many herbs possess medicinal qualities that we may be overlooking.

Let’s start with Sage, one of my favorites. Sage is an effective anti-inflammatory. Some old wives tales also include sage’s ability to ward off a cold if one drinks it infused in a cup of water throughout the day. Sage has aslo been used as an antiseptic.

Aromatherapy for your Spirit! Keeping yourself Mentally Well

Here are some tips on what to do to pick up your mood!

Aromatherapists agree on the following “nerve tonics”

1. Basil: Basil is called nature’s nerve tonic. When you buy some essential oils such as basil, remember that the best way to use oils is to dilute them. Use a spritzer and mix  the oils with distilled water. You only need a thimble full. Shake well, avoid your eyes and spritz it on your skin. You can also add essential oils to your bath water. Just a few drops.

2. Clay Sage: This is a mood elevator but don’t mix it with alcohol.
