Good morning everyone and how are you on this beautiful Monday morning?!
I have a bit of exciting news to share with you that I hope will be of some help to all of us! Friday morning my friend and fellow blogger, Roxy (The Oily Guru) texted me with some great news about how to possibly cure my tinnitus that I have been plagued with for quite some time.
She said the essential oil Helichrysum has been proven to stop the ringing in the ears when rubbed in and around the ear along with the mastoid bone behind the ear. For me, this is beyond exciting because I have been suffering from this condition for many years. As you may or may not know, I have written many posts, stories and essays on the subject here and on Medium and I am ready to have tinnitus eliminated from my life!
We had quite the discussion on and off for the whole day about prices, brands, and testimonials of people it helped, even with more than tinnitus. It is well known as an additive in skin creams but is very expensive so she was kind enough to share with me a blend that was less expensive, yet trusted that might work for me. I ordered it later that day (or was it Saturday?) and it will arrive TODAY! So excited! With the money I earned from jobs on Crowd Content, I was able to make my purchase from my PayPal account! I got permission from Roxy to discuss all this with you here today and I’m happy to share with you the company I purchased my oil from was Hopewell Oils and it is a Helichrysum Substitute Blend. I can’t wait to get it, use it, and share my results with you all! In one of the testimonials I read, it even helped stop the nerve pain from shoulder problems! That would also help me!
As for Roxy, she herself sells Young Living and would love to show you her oils and how you could save money and get a % off all of your oils. Click on the link for The Oily Guru above and it will take you to her site!
Moving on, in other news, I went to a brand new wellness store in Colleyville with my hubby this weekend and he purchased for me a new CBD tincture she had in her shop from American Shaman. It is CBD & terpene rich hemp oil which I am using sublingually. I have been using half a dropper twice a day but may start using a bit less three times a day in place of the muscle relaxers and pain pills. She even gave me a small sample of a CBD enriched lotion to use on the painful muscle spasms in my shoulders and I have to say, it is helping enough to keep me from having to take the other drugs! She was very knowledgeable about all the brands she sells in the store and all of her products. The tincture I got is tropical punch flavored, so it’s not bad at all. One can use it sublingually, put it in water, or vape it. If you would like to check this brand of products, go to Nature’s Mercantile CBD Store.
Actually, after looking online at the products, the brand I bought seems to be the American Shaman CBD products store, so check that one out as well. Unless you are familiar with CBD oil and the different strengths, you will have to do some research like I did and talk to various shop owners to learn more about it.
I have been working on trying to work as normal as possible but around two or three every day I find I need to rest my head against something and give my neck a break. I am still getting physical therapy to the house (they didn’t dismiss me after all) and once I go back to the dr on Jan 26, they will probably start having me go to an outside facility for my PT. Still healing!!
So much yet to discuss! Ok, when I started this blog, I intended it to be a vehicle to help people, a place to share knowledge, recipes, my passion for essential oils, a place to share my creative writing-poetry, essays, short stories, flash fiction-and here lately, it seems to have become more like a personal diary/journal. I want this year’s direction to get back on track with sharing helpful info like it was in the beginning, but still in a casual,” talk about anything” format. I bought a brand new large (but smaller than last year) desk calendar so I can plan blog posts, keep track of other writing assignments and important dates. I will still try to fit in all the stuff I did last year, but my aim is to make a difference in someone’s life by helping you with news you can use, products, recipes, books, services or whatever you need to enrich your life and health.
Yesterday, I discovered that I had earned enough money on my Ibotta app that I could transfer it to my PayPal account. Now I have money again, yea! Remember, Ibotta is the grocery app for your mobile device that helps you get money back on groceries and other things you would normally buy anyway. There are three ways to earn, Send in Receipts, Link Loyalty Cards, or Mobile In-App Purchases. Just click the link and it will take you to a signup page where you can get all the juicy details.
Also, before Christmas, I redeemed my Shopkick gift card to purchase the gift for our White Elephant gift exchange! So it didn’t actually cost me a dime. Cool! And all I did to earn the gift card was to walk in stores and score kicks (points) or scan products and earn kicks, or make purchases at certain stores my card is linked to (like Walmart) and the kicks added up fast! You can do it too, just click on the link and download the Shopkick app, it will take you to a signup page and explain everything you need to know to start earning your kicks. I know it works because I have had the app more than five years and I have redeemed a $25 gift card every year!
Well, the old neck is strained and I should go do my exercises and think about resting it for a little bit. Yall have a wonderful day and if you have any questions about anything I have discussed here today, please ask away by leaving me a comment!
