Leiann's Essential Oil Blog

Calamus Root.

The Calamus Root oil is used in a number of blends, like the Good Night blend. Also, it is used in Leiann's new Mind Control blend. This name is misleading because it could imply, not the best of intentions. But this is far from the truth, it is to help you control your own mind. Also, this oil is part of the R & D Program at the present time.

The plant Calamus is known by many names. One of the most prominent ones is Sweet Flag. The Latin name is Acorus calamus. In this plant, we use the root and it is steam distilled. The plant is similar to a Cat Tail to the casual observer. It also grows in the same conditions as does Cat Tails. It does produce fruit, from the flower. Although this only happens when the plant is actually growing in water. The fruit or as it is better known as a Berry is filled with Mucus. The fruit then drops on the water, floats off. Some new plants do evolve from this part, the majority of Calamus is grown from the root as it is a rhizome and it grows...

CV-19 Related.

With this new virus that is going around, I am sure you have myriads of ideas as to what is going on. I would like to discuss some ideas that might give some perspective to the makeup of this virus. I am going to discuss the theories behind this and related to it. Everything in this discussion is theory unless I say otherwise or it is obvious.

What appears to be at the very center of this outbreak and its relationship to the actual virus is a particular mineral and it's being centered around a particular Amino Acid. The mineral is Cesium and the AA is Asparagine. OK simple enough, but what's behind these 2 elements?

I really am trying to be as basic and to the point, as I can be and not leave out pertaining material. As a general rule Cesium is considered to have no biological role. Officially, that is. But there are a number of points that appear to be roaming around the virus. The main one is this Cesium mineral. Of course, you will find many other minerals that are part of the...

The Management of People and Business Success.

Since everyone is cooped up in their house, or something like that, I thought it might be a good time to review a presentation that I did on a FB live about business building. I feel like it is very fitting in light of the situation that many people are faced with.

So how do you go about building a business? I have seen so many of these psychopaths get up and say, "If you don't do it like me and become me, you are a loser". Then when you find out how they "built" their business, you find out that their way is not for you or well, it isn't reality. So in our discussion, we will deal with reality. What I am going to help you to understand is how to build a business that is sustainable for both the short term and long term. I call it, well, the water principle, I guess. We will learn how to make water flow uphill. So maybe The water flowing uphill principle?

When you are faced with going out into the big world, you will meet all kinds of people, this is great, but as you go you will...

Essential oil use on a dog, clinical level. Man Up EO blend.

I have had the responsibility of taking care of my mother's little dog since she got moved into an assisted living place. She was not allowed to take her dog, so I took her in. She is a Maltese Shitzo cross. Nice little dog, She is a house dog but does like to go outside and take a tour of the neighborhood on occasion. Sort of "get out of the house" for a short time. lol. Even dogs like to get away for a bit.

Anyway, right before she was to take a trip to the groomer, she got a foxtail caught between her eye and nose. We didn't notice it because of the hair, and the groomer said that she had found the foxtail and got it out. After a month or so, I noticed that she was acting a bit strange, then I noticed that in the place where the foxtail had been there was a sore that had scabbed over, I watched it for a few days and it was growing. So I asked Leiann to take her to the Vet. I honestly thought she had cancer. He said that she had a serious infection in several teeth and nasal...

March Gardening Tips.

March Gardening Tips.

As we approach the end of March, we need to start taking this gardening thing seriously. Gardening is about to shift into hyperspeed. But it doesn't need to be "hyper" but a shift into gear is in order. So we will hit on a few of the main points and try to keep this short.

First off, the seed selection is upon most of us. Most have put off this until the last minute. So get up and go down to the seed store and get what you need. As you make your selection, give this idea a thought. Think about doing 2 plantings. Do one planting early. Then, later on, do another planting. In order to do this, you will need to select a shorter growing season. Some plants do better in cooler weather. So if you get on top of things, you can grow some plants that mature early, such as Broccoli, Radishes, Peas, Cauliflower, Brussell Sprouts. Anyway, you get the idea, as there are many.

Next. Consider this idea. At the time of the writing of this tip, we are somewhere in the middle of...

Corona Virus Related.

I would like to take a moment to discuss with everyone an important part of this aromatherapy thing as it applies to the Corona Virus issue.
It is important to remember to NOT make claims of curing or healing with regards to essential oils or aromatherapy modalities. In order to make these types of claims, whatever item being referenced has to have gone through extensive test trials over a long period of time under precise protocols and controls.
Since this virus is somewhat new, it has not had enough time to have tests done on it and in relationship to ANY type of cure or data to carry the claim of healing. For example, I have seen claims that Vitamin C will "cure" it. Then I see people claim that a claim of Vitamin C being able to cure it is false. One is just as false as the other as no study has been done to support or deny those claims. For one thing, not enough time has elapsed to make a study of this new specific type of pathogen.
Based on previously known...

Zinc in the Spotlight of Health.

Today's discussion is centered around Zinc. I wanted to deviate a bit from the scheduled subject and touch on this for several reasons. For example, the other day I attended an annual farm machinery auction that takes place in this area. What I observed was somewhat disturbing. I know that in the past I looked pretty rough, health-wise, and perhaps I was in rough shape. But over the past few years, I have taken measures to change the direction that I was headed. I am sure my particular health challenges contributed to the observations of others, but I did have some issues outside of those, but, now I feel like they are getting under control so as I do feel great and a number of people have told me that I am looking like I might actually live. I must have looked pretty rough. So I will use my story a little bit to discuss what I have learned from my self and from others during the past 5 or so years.

So what was so disturbing to me at the auction? Aside from some obvious trends...

Dumbest Claim in Aromatherapy.

Dumbest Claim in Aromatherapy.

As I look back on the past 40 years of being involved in or with Aromatherapy in one form or another, I have just about heard it all. Much like the one Farmer's Insurance commercial that we see once in a while in media. You know the one where the guy says something to the effect of, "We have seen a thing or two". So it is with me in aromatherapy.

Fast forward to the present era of time. I was an observer on the sidelines here in Utah as what have become two of the biggest essential oil marketing companies around. They say they are the biggest. I say, so.. it isn't always best to be out there in the front, too much crap and nonsense to deal with. There is more to life than the accolades and ego of being the alpha dog of the pack. Well for some us anyway. So where am I going with this discussion? OK, fair enough, let's get to the bottom line. There are a lot of myths out there in aromatherapy and in particular with the essential oils. Drum roll.... the...

Perspective on Dumbest Claim in Aromatherapy.

This is a guest post by Amanda Clegg from the UK.

 

Kent , reading your recent article about the dangers of ingesting essential oils made me think about some of my experiences with the companies he refers to, one of which is now big in the UK.

Three or four years ago I was invited to join a Facebook Aromatherapy group. Fairly new to social media at the time, I thought ‘oh, what fun: how nice’, and proceeded to join in discussions and give opinions in my capacity as a UK-qualified practicing aromatherapist. All went well until the lady who ran it started posting alarming ‘tips’, culminating in my very negative response to a suggestion from her that placing black pepper oil under your tongue would negate cravings for nicotine. I was thrown out of the group!

Around the same time, several of my fellow Neal’s Yard Remedies Organics colleagues were also having similar issues, and some lively discussions resulted in our private group. (NYRO is the...

Coronavirus.

Coronavirus;
 
I would like to take a moment to discuss this whole idea of this virus and share some various perspectives. Here goes.
 
The current generation of people living has had a life of very little resistance to being given a life that generations of the past could only dream of if they could even comprehend a life without the resistance of the everyday, common challenges that they had to work with every day of their life. Their easiest day was much more difficult than our very worst day. In many parts of the world, everyday life is very difficult. Fortunately, anyone that is reading this does not experience the life of struggles that many people in various countries deal with daily. Many people in our world are living a life that has no cognitive comprehension of reality in this world.
 
The reality of this world is that we are subject to the law of nature. Some people out there claim a belief in a supreme being. There are as many different versions of this...
