The Gift of an Avocado Tree

We recently received a most generous gift from my beautiful sistar Teri. A 6 foot avocado tree !! I am thrilled to have this wonder of nature on my property now. I have decided to name her a Ava Theresa. For those of you that think I am a little weird from naming my avocado tree, you may not think so if you knew what an incredible blessing it is to be in possession of one of the most healthiest anti aging fruit trees on the planet.

Recipe for Kiwi Kisses

7 Kiwi’s pealed & sliced

2 cups of ice

Put all the ingredients in a blender and drink!  It’s a very refreshing and nutritional summer beverage.

Ahhh, Anise

Spring is definitely in the air. Lately many of the people I see are suffering with nasty sinus headaches. I don’t claim this will work for everyone, however, I do know that the people I have shared this beautiful midwestern asian flower oil with has had nothing but the best results. It’s called Anise. It has a clean sweetness, in addition to a strong anisic (licorice-like) aroma. You can use Anise Aromatherapy Oil as a face steamer, diffuser or massage it right into your nose if you have a bad headache.  Just put a little drop or two of  Anise oil on your finger and rub into your nose as high as you can get to your sinus cavity and breathe. :) I have seen it work amazingly to open up the bronchial airways within five to ten minutes for dissolving a bad sinus headache. Do have a kleenex handy however, as once that congestion breaks loose, and it will, it is liken to a water balloon that burst onto your face. It’s all good though right? After all, it beats the alternative.

Other benefits of Anise :

Anise tea for digestive issues and menstrual cramps. Anise oil for numbing a mild toothache ( is there such a thing? ;) and you can chew on Anise Stars for sleeplessness.

Caution : Do not use Anise Essential Oil if you are pregnant. Use caution if you have hypersensitive skin or skin problems. Avoid anise oil in endometriosis and estrogen-dependent cancers. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use essential oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using essential oils with children  It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using essential oils with children. A skin patch test should be conducted prior to using an oil that you’ve never used before.
