I go to prepare a place for you…

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:1-3 I don’t know what it looks like there. In heaven. We can’t know for sure, although there are glimpses into heaven in the Bible. Innumerable crowds around the throne, emerald rainbow, creatures with wings and faces and many “mansions”. I… Keep reading…

You can use Lemongrass for excessive perspiration, athlete’s foot and toenail fungus, oily skin to purify and tone the skin, to help stabilize & balance emotions in times of distress & trauma, to soothe sore muscles and joints, as an insect repellent and more.

Itchy Skin? Make a batch of Healing Salve…

healing salve  base

The beauty of the base recipe for Healing Salve is that you can add any combination of oils to it depending on what health issue you want to address. If you have itchy skin (bug bites, psoriasis, eczema or dermatitis?), you can add essential oils that will soothe your skin. If you have congestion or a cough, you can add respiratory oils to the salve base. It is sooooo versatile!  I like to use Lemon (antiseptic), Lavender (soothing for your skin) and Melaleuca (first aid for your skin) to the base for a soothing, anti-itch salve. There’s a lot more HERE.

God has not abandoned you.

God has not abandoned you

“They that know thy name will put their trust in thee:  for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”  Psalm 9:10 KJV The word “forsaken” in Psalm 9:10 is from עָזַב  – the Hebrew word “azaz” –  which is a verb that could have also been translated left, abandoned or neglected. The people of God are NOT abandoned by God! They are NOT forsaken or left alone or neglected!  However, this verse does not say that that those who seek Him always get what they want. God is not Santa Claus. Sometimes He delays the answer to our prayers. He might not… Keep reading…

Some companies steam process the fruit destroying the “furocoumarin”.  (This is an organic compound in the Lime that is used as a defense mechanism. It protects against insect and animal predators – from Wikipedia). Lime essential oil also differs slightly in chemistry than their other citrus oils. All citrus oils contain limonene. But Lime also offers alcohols and esters. This adds calming… Keep reading…
