The art of all plant-based potions lies in the combination of substances that are mutually beneficial and enhance one another. This is the principle of synergy...the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. The final elixer has a far greater effect than does the taking of each substance separately.

The action of healing remedies is to open us up for the recption of the Spiritual fill our natures with the virtues we need and to cleanse us from the faults that are causing harm. They inspire the physical as well as the spiritual self to raise our very natures, bringing us peace and relieving our sufferings. They heal by not attacking the disease but by flooding our bodies with the vibrations of our higher nature. There is no true healing unless there is a change in our out-look, peace of mind and inner happiness.

Barbara's Healing Oil

This is an oil that my mother used for all of our cuts, scrapes, burns, and other assorted maladies. It is also an excellent moisturizer and when I use it for that purpose I add a couple of drops of my favorite essential oil.

3 tblsp safflower oil
3 tblsp sesame oil
2 tblsp sunflower oil
2 tblsp apricot kernal oil
3 tblsp almond oil
2 tblsp avocado oil
2 tblsp peanut oil
1 tblsp olive oil
1 tblsp wheat germ oil

Combine and keep refrigerated, it contains no preservatives and will go rancid. I warm it before use unless it is for a burn.

The safflower is an excellent treatment for a variety of skin complaints. This plant is not related to saffron but is used as a substitute owing to the high price of the latter.

Sesame is legendary for opening locked door, revealing secret passages and finding lost treasures...this also applies to the hidden gifts we all have within each and every one of us. The geometrical perfection of the sunflower gave the ancient Incans the strong reverance for this plant's great magickal powers. It is capable of re-balancing the ego, restoring self-esteem, imparting wisdom and also used as an aid in conception. Sunflowers were once used to ward of small pox.

The apricot is used in love potions and promotes beauty...without as well as within. It is used widely in the cosmetic industry for its softening action on the skin.

According to Greek myth, Phyllis was deserted by her lover Demophoon and died of grief so the gods changed her into a barren almond tree. When her lover returned and embraced the tree in his grief the almond burst into leaf and flower, hence a symbol of true love transcending death. Historically it has been used to combat fevers, impart wisdom and is an excellent remedy for chapped hands.

In Scriptural and classical writings the oil of the olive is used as a symbol of goodness and purity and the tree represents peace and happiness. It ensures fertility as well as sexual potency in men. Externally it counteracts the effects of stings or burns and babies absorb its nourishment well through their skin.

Avocados are lust inducing and promote beauty, the peanut is a potent fertility inducer. Wheat germ oil is extremely high in Vitamin E which promotes healing and helps prevent scarring.
