It’s time for a big re-think of what we classify as a medicine

Posted on: August 26th, 2015

Our BE RELIEVED is in the same category as Panadol and Nurofen,we pay an annual fee as a 'Listed Medicine' yet it is still looked on as an alternative medicine. It's time for a big re-think of what we classify as a medicine. As Kurt Schnaubelt in Medical Aromatherapy Healing with Essential Oils reveals: "Modalities such as aromatherapy, which acknowledges the phenomena of the soul, will be vastly more successful in treating the real problems of our times than conventional medicine. Medicine as it stands is part of the problem, therefore it can do very little for its solution". He goes on...

Essential oils to keep you warm

Posted on: July 10th, 2015

I've been a lover of essential oils now for over 20 years and by now you must know that I'm very passionate about them. I strongly believe that they are our medicine of the future.

Because of their vast complexity and human...

This is because they are considered venous decongestants, circulatory stimulants and they have an astringent action.

Often accompanied by dull, nagging aches and pains. Swellings, sore legs, leg cramps and feelings of heaviness in the legs are also...
