Sock Cure for the Common Cold!

 The kids are back in school & that means cold season has officially begun!

I just heard a report that drinking out of a school faucet has more germs

Than drinking out of a school toilet, yuck!  Thank goodness for Klean Kanteen,

I highly recommend telling your child only to drink from their personal water bottle.

Inevitably, you might end up fighting a cold this season, so I thought I’d share my absolute favorite cold remedy: the Sock Cure!  This cold treatment will help your body fight the common cold, reduce congestion, decrease headache and treat coughs.  This cure is not effective for stomach flu per se, but can be used to break a fever with flu.  This remedy is safe and effective for kids and pregnant women, too.  I start with the sock therapy before I give my son medicine for a fever because 9 times out of 10 this will cure his fever.

 

Here’s what you need:

1 pair ordinary socks

1 pair 85% -100% WOOL socks (I like Smart Wool)

1 bottle of Eucalyptus Smiithi 

(hey I just so happen to have it by Floracopeia in stock if you need!)

 

So I realize as I write this how you really want all your supplies close at hand & ready, the process takes less than 5 minutes, but it involves your feet, so you’re not going to want to get up and have to get something once you get started, hope that makes sense.  This is a lovely process you can do for each other if you live with others.

 

  1. First throw the pair of wool socks in the dryer, so they are getting really toasty warm, take them out & have them handy.
  2. Second Rinse the other pair of socks in cold water, ring them out.
  3. Rub the Eucalyptus oil on the bottom of your feet.  It has been clinically proven that Aromatherapy oils will directly enter the blood stream when placed on the bottom of your feet (there are the most receptors there).
  4. Put the cold rinsed, wringed out socks on your feet.
  5. Put the dry, warm wool socks over the wet socks on your feet.
  6. Climb into bed and prepare to sweat.

 

 

This process brings all the heat in the body down to your feet to warm the wet feet, this will break a fever and your body will begin to sweat out the cold.  The process of drawing heat down to your feet will also heal a headache and decrease sinus congestion.  The Eucalyptus on your feet will eliminate coughing so you can get deep rest.  I generally just fall asleep with the socks on, but if you prefer to take them off, give it at least 3 hours.  When you take the socks off the inner sock should be completely dry.  If the inner sock is not dry, you may not have had a 80 % Wool sock on the outer.

I learned this Sock Cure from my favorite Bastyr Founder Naturopath Dr. Bill Mitchell.

This Sock remedy has been shown to:

  • • help fight off cold viruses
  • • overcome infections of the throat
  • • reduce coughing, especially at night
  • • clear nasal congestion
  • • treats respiratory sinus infections,
  • • reduces headache & migraine pain
  • • decreases fevers

 

I like to add to this treatment a bowl of Tom Ka soup, Chili Verde or hot tea to increase the sweat even more.

Of course my other favorite treatment for the common cold is cupping the back of the neck, I’ll write about that one sometime soon. If the sock treatment doesn’t do it, come in & get your neck cupped, this always does the trick!

If you get real sick this season, remember that I also offer Distance Reiki Sessions now, so you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your couch and I can send you some healing Reiki to help you feel better and recover quicker.

Be Well Everyone!

 

Year of the Fire Rooster!

Year of Fire Rooster!

Year of Fire Rooster!

Gung Hay Fat Choy!!! Year of the Fire Rooster! 

1/27/17 New Moon Aquarius marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Fire Rooster. The Rooster calls Cockadoodle-Doo @ the break of dawn to WAKE US UP! & get us to work on the farm! This year already feels like a Wake Up Call in so many ways.  New Year & New Moons are a great time to “Reboot” & this energy is calling us to make big changes in any area that is not working for us. I just read, if you don’t like where you are right now, MOVE, you’re not a Tree!

A lot of shifts happening this year for many of us, which can be challenging but also exciting… This is a time to learn more, do more, be more, the energy of the Fire Rooster will INSPIRE you to step out of your comfort zone & try something new. It’s a go, go, go kinda year, which can be exhausting so remember to take time out for self care as well.

This year is the most auspicious time for Space Clearing, purging, cleaning out your closets, sock drawers & tidying up.

This year will fare best for Roosters & Dragons.

And if you are looking for a local Chinese New Years Celebration, Oregon Tai Chi will be having a Chinese New Years event Saturday, more info on their site here:

And if you want to know what 2017 holds for you personally, remember that I am offering Free 9 Star Ki Astrology (Chinese Astrology) readings with your Massage or Reiki Session right now! I also do Space Clearings…

Full Moon Infused Oils

Posted on: November 11th, 2016 by healing_arts_admin
oils blessed by Full Moon

oils blessed by once in a lifetime SUPERMOON

On the Eve of this Supermoon I made Moonlit Infused Aromatherapy Infusions!

I decided to make my favorite Aromatherapy Blends just in time to be infused w/ the Full Moon Energy of this powerful Lunar eclipse we will be having on Friday!

I made Abundance, Immunity, LOVE & Fertility blends utilizing O’ponopono blue water for the spritzers & all organic, ethically harvested oils. Then of course I Reiki’d the blends w/ powerful Reiki Symbols!

Abundance Oil contains Orange, Cinnamon, Clove, Frankincense, Myrrh, Star Anise, Amber, Cedar, Fir Balsam & Patchouli. All of these oils are money magnets, especially useful in the Fall when we harvest our abundance!

Immunity Oil contains Eucalyptus Globulus, Red Eucalyptus, Ravensara, Oregano, Clove, Tulsi (Holy Basil) ,cinnamon leaf, lemongrass, Orange & Fir Balsam. These oils were used during the time of the plague, by thieves, to ward off illness as they took watches, shoes and clothing of those who had died plague, pretty morbid history, but it does illustrate the effectiveness of these essential oils for decades before! My favorite application of Immunity oil is to put it on your feet when doing the wool sock remedy, anytime you feel a cold coming on. This is a strong oil, so I do not recommend putting it anywhere near your face, better for chest & feet. Immunity spritzer is great for clearing a space where illness has been.

LOVE is St. Johns wort, Sandalwood, Rose & Ylang Ylang & is a powerful uplifter for Winter duldrums & attracts true love.

Fertility Oil contains Clary Sage, Rose Geranium, Angelica & ylang ylang. This oil is wonderful for regulating hormones, easing menstrual tension and increasing libido!
Use with caution, may produce babies!!!

Funny side story, I was clearing my windowsill, so I would be able to place the Aromatherapy bottles in the window for a Full Moon infusion, when I found a baby grasshopper!
He was so cute, I got side tracked into making a little terrarium for him to live.
Then I just had to read the shamanic meaning of grasshopper…Turns out Full Moons were known to coax beautiful music out of a grasshopper, wonder if I will hear his sweet melody on Friday night. They are also bearers of Good Luck, Prosperity, Health & Fertility! How funny since these oil blends are about prosperity, health & fertility! I like to think these blends have been infused with grasshopper magic also, since he sat peacefully in his terrarium, eating clover leaves & watching me pour oils.

It took all day to make these special blends & I can only hope they last through Christmas time, because last year when I made my oil blends I sold out in two weeks & didn’t have time to make for Christmas shopping, so stock up now!
Oils will be available for purchase beginning w/ this Saturday’s First Degree Reiki Class.
