In almost 16 years I have never increased the price of this product. The 8 ounce is $20.00 (approximately 1500 sprays) and the 16 ounce (the big guy, 3000 spays is $36.00). I believe I have the lowest price in the United States, as some vendors are charging up to $ 40.00 for the 8 ounce and $80.00 for the 16 ounce.
The most valuable, important product in the entire collection, the Eucalyptus Oil Spray for health and well-being. This is the product I discovered at a Swap-Meet in Phoenix 16 years ago, while I was see a Dr. at a pain clinic three times a week for pain. You can read more on the "About Me" page on the website.
For pain relief - due to it being a thin product, it enters the skin fast and goes deep, and if you put a little gusto into rubbing, this is the product that will bring long lasting relief ,as it reduces swelling and releases toxins from the muscle. The only other massage product I make is the Intensive Remedy Rub. To obtain long lasting relief you must use a massage product. If you have an Orbital Sander you can put a towel on the area you are massaging and use the sander on top.

|New Product - Crabby Girl - Chill-Out Balm|
|If you are crabby and cranky & need to chill out - this one is for you. This is one of our new products and a very favorite of mine, as I used to make it years ago for me and my family members. With Lavender Oil, Blood Orange, Mandarin and Neroli (a bitter orange that has an intriguing aroma) in a beeswax base with almond oil & Jojoba. The texture is lovey, and the aroma is divine. When you feel stress or anxiety coming, or have a hard time sleeping, just apply under the nose and it hits the brain within about 45 seconds. Extremely relaxing, as citrus oils are know to have dramatic results in dealing with anxiety disorders.|
I've been using the Lavender Comfort Balm for 15 years to help me relax at nightime or when I'm feeling stress. It also keeps me from grinding my teeth and jaw clenching, but have to admit Click on Crabby Girl Crabby Girl is giving it a good run.
|New Product - Castor-Rose Intense Skin Repair & Honey-Rose Face Wash|
|The Castor-Rose Intense Skin Repair , as well as the Castor Oil Intense Skin Repair, has a very short window for shipping, due to the Arizona heat, we can only ship from the end of November through mid February. This is a sister product to the "Castor Oil Intense Skin Repair" - with the same skin healing properties; sun baked skin, aging skin, wrinkles, and skin tags. The medicinal smelling oils used in the original formula have been substituted with oils of Lavender, Rose, Jasmine & Sandalwood. Castor oil, used topically, has properties to stimulate the lymphatic system in the body and has been used for many, many years for use in massage, including applications for callouses, bunions, moles, warts, various skin condition, tumors, cancer (skin and breast), cysts, and many other conditions. An all oil based luxury moisturizer, where a little goes along way-this is especially nice at bedtime as the aroma of the essential oils - lingers on the skin and helps to relax the body and soul.|
We also offer the Honey Rose Face Wash, which smells like an English Garden, with Lavender, Rose Sandalwood and Jasmine. Nice to use before bedtime, as its very calming.
|Recipe for Homemade Vick's Vapor Shower Discs|
|These shower discs are so inexpensive to make, and will be a lifesaver over the winter season - especially with the kids being exposed to colds and flu at school, Store bought - they are a little expensive , but make up a batch to keep the entire family comfortable when sick. Cold season is upon us and unfortunately, chances are that either we or our children will come down with a miserable cold. You can also use these in a vaporizer.|
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch**1/3-1/2 cup water (You may need to add more or less.)35 drops of eucalyptus essential oil or 2-3 tsp. Vick’s Vapor Rub* (not natural)
Mix using enough water to make a thick paste. You can pour into muffin tins lined with papers, make small balls and set on a plate or put into a silicone ice cube tray or muffin tray. Let them set for at least 12 hours or overnight to dry. You can bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes to dry them more quickly. Remove from papers or silicone trays and store in an airtight container.
When ready to use, place a disc on the floor of your shower and let the water run on it while showering.
**You can leave the cornstarch out of the Homemade Vick’s Vapor Shower Discs. It does help in holding them together better tho.
|Planet Dog Remedies - Don't forget our furry friends|
|I made up this blend years ago, when my friend's Doberman, Ruby, who had survived cancer with many chemo treatments, suddenly after a year or so - she was unable move her neck and was too weak to even stand. The Vet suspected that the Chemo & radiation treatments may have damaged the nerves in the neck and spine area. The prognosis was not good. I so believe in animal massage (including horses) and have seen many miracles myself, with my animals as well as others. As I remember, my friend still kept Ruby on some meds - but the massage proved so beneficial, and Ruby lived for some time after. She loved the moist heat bags, which provide more benefits that a heating pad in reducing swelling and relieving pain. My Golden lived to be 18 years old, and I extended his life, to where it was easier to get around with massage. Also, the smell is so nice, with the Lavender and Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus is used in some kennels for Kennel Cough. You can spray doggie beds, which is not only great for allergies and breathing issues, but also so nice for calming and relaxing. |
I believe people in general do not understand the impact that natural remedies can have on your skin, body and mind. From pain relief,which is my specialty, to helping calm and relax with aromatherapy products, I have seen amazing results with thousands of customers over the years. My friend mentioned the other day she had given many of my products as gifts - and people don't know what to do with them. If you have met me at a show and I have massaged you - then you get it. With the new healthcare law taking effect, possibly people may seek alternative remedies for dealing with pain and inflammation. I have noticed that even with my doctor, who has seen me every 3 to 6 months for three years - it is now over a year since my last visit and they now call me with my lab results.
This is the best diagram I've seen showing exactly where to massage for pain from the waist up. Working shows & large events weekly for almost 10 years I ran into just about every pain ailment possible - I never had anyone leave my booth without feeling enormous relief from the short, deep massage. Because my massages were rarely longer than 5 minutes (except migraines) - I would at times, at a large event do several hundred on a weekend. I learned from my customers over the years that most pain from the waist up, including hands, arms, headaches, migraines come from these areas (expecially from where the X is at the around the shoulder blade). I normally don't massage with the flat of the hand other than with headaches. I would first massage the upper neck and shoulder first - then move down with my thumb or the upper bone in the thumb to the X areas in the diagrahm. The spot to apply pressure is usually about the size of a nickle or quarter and once you pinpoint the spot - it will hurt when you apply pressure. That little spot causes all kinds of symptoms and problems. If you have an orbital sander, place a towel over the area, place sander on top towel - and there you go!! You can also lean up against a door jam - stretch the arm over to the other side of the body, as to be able to get under the blade - or try the tennis balls in a sock. Pain from the waist down, (feet, knees (inside of knee you will find the spot in most cases) try sciatic area - sit in a chair, lean over to stretch the back and find the spot. Then applying pressure with the tips of your fingers, massage deep in a circular motion.
Recipe for Pure Eucalyptus Spray with natural alcohol

A 2 ounce bottle of Pure Eucalyptus will make 2 - 8 ounce bottles of this powerful spray. Enough to get you through most of the winter season.
It's the time of year where we need to take precautions to keep germs, colds, flu at bay. My little grandson had to be taken to emergency last night with a Croup diagnosis. My son called this morning and I reminded him of this remedy, which they used when he was tiny.
About breathing – Eucalyptus oil is widely used in saunas and steam rooms. This oil fights viral and bacterial infections that can cause sore throats, the flu, coughs, colds, sinusitis. While helping to clear the bronchial passageways and sinus cavities, it will ease nasal congestion and help to prevent asthma attacks. If you can disperse in the air, (see recipe below) or a vaporizer or cool mist humidifier, it can inhibit the spread of infection. Spray your pillow at night if you are prone to headaches or migraines, and allergies (a must for handling the problems of dust mites before your head hits the pillow). If you spray cotton balls with the eucalyptus spray and put in a zip lock baggie, in an emergency, you can simply breathe in for immediate relief. Some years ago , Oprah aired a segment on dust mites and bed bug eggs – which just about made me sick. A woman had used the same pillow for twenty years and with a microscope you were able to get a look at these horrible little mites, which look like ticks. When we roll over we slough off our dry skin cells; these nasty little critters eat them. I had read articles on Eucalyptus Oil killing the mites, so I am passing on an economical tip on keeping your mattress and sheets clean – as well as keeping you healthy.
Pour one ounce of pure Eucalyptus Oil with seven ounces of vodka or distilled water in to a industrial sprayer. You can also go half distilled water, half Vodka if you prefer. You can use 80 proof Vodka (40% water - 40% natural alcohol or 100 proof (50/50) or plain distilled water. I prefer the alcohol as it has antiseptic disinfectant properties and holds the aroma longer than water or Witch Hazel. Shake well before spraying your mattress & sheets (at least once a week) – but you will feel the benefits with the body and mind. This is not to be used on the skin, as is a very potent product – but, you will notice a difference. Some other ways to use this spray, including using as a sauna or shower spray
• Spray several times into hot rinse cycle with sheets • Spray a wash rag and stick into dryer with sheets and towels
• Spray a couple of sprays in the shower like a steam room effect
• Spray several sprays into cool mist humidifier
• Spray a napkin and attach to a fan to purify the air, (Eucalyptus Oil fights the cold & flu virus) • Spray a cotton-cleansing pad, and attach to air vent in auto
• Spray your pillows before bedtime as Eucalyptus makes you sleep more restful and is said to improve mental concentrated.
It's the time of year where we need to take precautions in helping to keep germs, colds, flu away..
|In closing, I can't leave without mentioning the thousands and thousands of homeless, helpless animals sitting in over crowded shelters - facing ultimate death if not rescued. If you are considering a furry friend - please consider adoption.|
Wishing everyone a healthy, successful year.
