    Hi MM :).

    Trying to find an affordable source for some of the essential oils is a problem. I have a fair collection but not all the ones some of your recipes call for. Do you know some good, but affordable, sources?

    Garlic Oil (antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal)
    Crush or squeeze 6 cloves of garlic into a cup. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Allow the active ingredient in the garlic (ajoene) to seep into the oil for 3 days. Strain off the garlic residue and apply the oil with a cotton swab or cotton ball once daily for a week. If irritation occurs, stop use immediately.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Antibacterial powder (for dogs and cats)
    1- part golden seal powder
    1- part garlic powder

    This is to prevent and treat general infections, parasitic infections (such as ringworm or mange), or hair loss. Mix together and store in a covered jar.
    Apply freely to any sore or abraded area where bacteria might become a problem.

    Yes keep them coming. My grandmother was an herbalist and my mom did not share her interest. By the time I came along my grandmother was in her late 70's and she did not write anything down. What a waste of information, her great grandfather was a medicine man of the local indians in southern Indiana.

    I enjoy using aromatherapy - always glad to get new recipes! :)

    BayouShaman, I don't know if a truely economical source for oils (I get my at Whole Foods), but I would advise this: don't use NOW products. Their packaging is misleading - they say something like 100% natural or 100% oil. The problem is, their product is a carrier oil with a little essential oil added. There's nothing harmful about the product - it's just that you're paying for a carrier oil when you really want an essential oil. HTH

    Thanks for putting that up Goshengirl-I was going to tell everyone the same thing... they do have a few that are real essential oil(but only the cheaper easily had stuff) I do buy the now oils here and there for my candles and just for scents for smelling good, but not for any practical or religious uses.

    A really good cure for athletes foot is honey.
    If you are suffering then every evening soak your feet in a nice hot salt and water bath(about 1/4 cup per basin, water as hot as you can stand) then spread on your dried feet a light layer of honey-get it in every crack and crevice and then put on a clean pair of white socks and got to sleep.. then wash them well in the morning and try to keep them dry.. sure it takes a good week or even two to get them all healed but it does work..
    Also keeping your footwear clean and dry(dry is most important). When ever possible get them tootsies out in the air and let them breath.
    I've used this cure after working at a job where my feet were wet all day long. Once the weather got warm I switched to sandals where they could dry and breathe and they cleared right up with treatment.
