Condition of the day...


There's An Oil For That!


ACNE
(copied from Modern Essentials: A Contempory Guide To The Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils)

Acne is a skin condition, generally of the face, commonly found in adolescents and young adults. Acne is characterized by red, irritating blemishes (pimples) on the skin. Most commonly, acne is found on the oil-pr...oducing parts of the body such as the face, chest, back, upper arms and back of neck. Acne is a blockage of a skin pore by dead skin cells, tiny hairs, and oil secreted by the sebaceous glands located near the hair follicles in the face, neck and back. This blockage occurs deep within the skin. Acne is not currently believed to be caused by dirt on the face or by eating certain foods and research has indicated that over-scrubbing the face may actually make acne worse.

Oils:
Primary recommendation: Clear Skin blend, melaleuca
Secondary: lavender
Other recommendations: geranium, sandalwood, thyme, vetiver, lemon, lemongrass, marjoram, patchouli, doTERRA's Clear Skin Foaming Face Wash

Oh, Rats!!


Interesting article.


A good line regarding D.C.: "Something has to be between us and Virginia—and, oh, hey, it happens to be you."



I like the analogies (and trust me, analogies usually annoy me)... and if I may add to that,

If DC is "...the... sensitive kid, upper-middle-class, high achiever."
And Baltimore is "... this other girl (Baltimore), a loner, working-class (not too hard on the eyes in an earthy, winsome way)"

Perhaps the south (VA?) is: the sturdy, homespun but pretty girl you met in Vo-Ag class, who could do anything from rearing babies, planting a garden and changing the brakes on her car... at the same time... not the prom queen but someone with whom you knew you could spend your life.

We (southerners) pretty much think of N.Y. as the "big city", Baltimore as urban, historic, quaint and we mostly think of D.C. as ... dirty, literally AND figuratively.

Have you ever Really loved a woman?



Fellas, have you listened to these words?


Generally speaking, we women are not a pragmatic lot (except when we absolutely must be), we read romances yet don't necessarily believe in "happily ever after", we like fairy tales but we don't think they're real.

When you say "forever", "I promise", etc... do we believe you?

In my case, probably not. But do we want to Hear it? Yes. Yes. Yes.

It's not living in a fantasy, it's not believing fairy tales... it's grabbing a moment of happiness because who knows what will happen next.
