Bed Bugs are Bugging Me!

Is there any non-toxic solution for bed bugs? Also, I’m interested the meaning behind the appearances of bed bugs, why me?

Bed bugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans; they are a form of lice. Adult bed bugs have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. After feeding, however, their bodies swell and are a reddish color. They cannot fly but can move quickly over floors, walls and ceilings. They do not carry disease, but are a huge nuisance, especially as they can prevent people from sleeping properly. They can be particularly problematic in hotels and apartments.

Sound elixirs [1]deter bed bugs from moving into your environment. Bed bug infestations reflect increasing density within the body. A reason for this is that we are finding more answers. Sound elixirs break down form and frequency held in patterns, and also prevent nano-organisms from coming into contact with lightworkers.

Lavender oil[2] of high quality and preferably organic, also assist in the elimination of bed bugs as they cannot tolerate the frequency of lavender. Pour the desired quantity of high quality almond oil (as a carrier oil) into a spray bottle, and add a small amount (10 drops or desired amount) of lavender oil. Spray it over yourself, the bed sheets, under the bed, in vents of the room and around the perimeter of your house or apartment.

Q. Do you have any recipes for natural beauty products?

Almine’s reply:

Lavender oil
Lavender oil is rare in that it is anti-inflammatory and balancing (normalizing oiliness) and is suitable for every body type. Furthermore, it reduces stress and enhances libido. It is a powerful wrinkle reducer, antiseptic and scar eliminator. Like bergamot oil, you can use it as an anti-depressant and it is also great as a deodorant. It relieves sunburn and restores skin’s elasticity.
Note: Drop 4 drops of lavender oil into a cup of pure, cool water. Dip a washcloth in the solution, wring out the excess liquid, and use as a soothing eye compress.

Toners and Spritzers
1. Mineral water mixed with 3–4 drops of lavender oil.
2. Organic apple cider vinegar mixed with 3–5 drops of lavender oil
relieves skin disorders, redness, inflammation and age spots.
3. A tablespoonful of witch hazel combined with 2 drops of lavender
oil is an astringent, cooling toner that refines skin tone and
minimizes enlarged pores. Store this in the refrigerator.

Note: Use spray bottle to mist face if desired, keep eyes closed when spritzing.

Lavender Oil Properties

Q. What essential oil would you recommend for cuts and bruises and for burns*?

A. The answer is the same for all three: therapeutic grade lavender oil (such as the Young Living Oils brand). It has anti-viral, antiseptic and antibacterial qualities and is the single most important oil to prevent scarring and blistering from a burn. I recommend dousing the burn immediately in very cold water, or to treat it with ice. Keep the burn in the cold water (or by applying ice) as long as it takes to allow the initial pain and discomfort to subside. The 2nd step would be to douse the burn and to re-apply the lavender oil as needed. The 3rd step would be to cover the wound with tannic acid jelly. Tannin is a substance found in tea and has been found to be very successful in the treatment of burns. The tannin prevents the wound from drying and cracking as well as from sticking to bandages, which should be applied to any open wounds to prevent infection. (Note: it may be necessary to obtain a prescription for tannic acid jelly or to obtain it from a compounding pharmacy.)

Lavender essential oil is available (and all Young Living Oils products), through our Spiritual Journeys office: 1-877-552-5646, toll-free in the US.

*Note: It is suggested to seek emergency assistance for serious burns of 2nd or 3rd degree.

Temper Tantrums

A temper tantrum is the outward expression of inner turmoil. It is therefore non-productive to take that outer expression at face value. Often the child directs the turmoil at a misperceived outer object – you, for instance, or another child touching his toy – not knowing why he or she is really angry.

The first thing to do is to give him space to calm down and come to terms with his feelings (the traditional time out). Do it in a non-punitive way by saying, “Go to your room”. Or use the traditional standby, the water therapy bath with chamomile or lavender flowers tied in a cotton sock and hung on the running tap. You can then ask, “What is really bothering you? If you tell me about it, perhaps I can help”.

Children learn most by example. It is your example of not engaging the superficial that trains them to live a spiritual life of depth. You cannot react in anger and then expect them to masterfully respond to life’s circumstances. When you feel yourself slipping into frustration and anger, take ‘time out’ yourself before you respond. A bath works wonders for grownups too!
