Essential Oils have amazing healing power and my family has grown to love the X-Plague blend from Garden Essence that we have at Herbs First. X-Plague contains Cloves, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata and Rosemary Essential Oils. The highly anti-viral, antiseptic properties of the single oils contained in this blend help protect the body from the onset of flu, E-coli, candida, colds, sore throats, gum infection, canker sores and more. The Garden Essence oils are all full-strength oils and are not to be used straight from the bottle, but should be mixed with a carrier oil. A carrier oil can be any good oil that you may have such as olive oil or almond oil. Since X-Plague is used so often for colds, flu's and sore throats we
like to mix it into a bottle of Glandular Massage Oil. Glandular Massage Oil on its own is great for rubbing on the neck area when we have a sore throat. Here is what Dr. Christopher said about the Glandular Massage Oil in one of his newsletters:
"Tonsillitis: The tonsils are the tail end of the lymphatic system. They swell up with pus and infection when the body is overloaded with toxic material. When the system is overloaded with waste that an inactive lymphatic system cannot eliminate, the tonsils become enlarged and sore. They are a safety valve of the body - a warning system, if you wish. They should never be removed from the body. The lymphatic system can be cleared through exercise. The lymph system has no pump such as the bloodstream has the heart. Exercise can activate the lymph system to carry waste products from the cells. The glandular formula can be taken internally as a tea or capsules and externally as a fomentation around the neck covering the affected glands. Of course the tonsils will diminish in size and infectious content with adherence to the correct principles of nutrition contained in the mucusless diet. "
Adding X-Plague to the bottle of Glandular makes the two formulas together a great combination for keeping sickness at bay. We use is all winter on our necks and the upper chest before we head out to work or send the kids to school, and put it on our feet at night where the healing properties can be distributed throughout our entire bodies via the reflex points. Add 60 drops of X-Plague to a fresh bottle of Glandular Massage Oil and you are armed with a great Flu/Cold fighting arsenal.
In Dr. Christopher’s statement above he talks about exercise clearing the lymphatic system. The best exercise for keeping the lymph system moving is the rebounder also know as a mini-trampoline. I have used a rebounder for over 25 years and it is my main exercise in the morning while watching Good Morning America. The rebounder is fun and easy to use, kids love it, people of any age can use it including the elderly. I feel very energized and ready for the day after exercise. The ReboundAIR comes with a lifetime warranty and are built to last. The Standard and half-fold models are for people under 300 lbs. The Ultimate quarter fold model is for people weighing less that 400 lbs. Included with the Rebounder is a CD & DVD. The ReboundAIR is a great addition to any home exercise and wellness program.
