Why I use Ravensara in the Sinus Therapy Mask

This is one of the essential oils I use in the Sinus Therapy Mask.  After you read it you will understand why I use this one.  I use the purest one I can find and for that reason it is rather expensive, but oh so worth the benefits it provides (in my opinion).
Health Benefits of Ravensara Essential Oil

Analgesic: The analgesic property of Ravensara oil makes it an effective remedy for many types of pain, including toothache, headache, muscular and joint pain, and earaches.

Anti-Allergenic: This oil itself is non-sensitizing, non-irritating and it reduces the allergic reactions of the body as well. Gradually, it builds a resistance against allergenic substances so the body does not show hyper reactions against them.

Antibacterial & Antimicrobial: Some of the most notorious bacteria and microbes cannot even stand to be near this essential oil. They fear it more than anything and there are sufficient reasons for that. This oil is fatal to the bacteria and microbes and can wipe out entire colonies very efficiently. It inhibits their growth, cures old infections and stops new infections from forming. Therefore, it can be used against diseases resulting from bacterial and viral infections such as food poisoning, cholera, and typhoid.

Antidepressant: This oil is very good for countering depression and giving a boost to positive thoughts and feelings of hope. It uplifts your mood, relaxes the mind and invokes energy and sensations of hope and joy. If this essential oil is systematically administered to patients suffering from chronic depression, it can help them gradually come out of that difficult situation.

Antifungal: Similar to its effect on bacteria and microbes, this oil is very harsh on fungi as well. It inhibits their growth and even kills their spores. Therefore, it can be used against fungal infections in the ears, nose, head, skin and nails.

Antiseptic: Sepsis is caused by a type of bacteria called Staphylococcus Aureus, which mainly infects open and unprotected wounds as well as soft and delicate internal organs. Sepsis is a big threat to the lives of newborn babies, as their skin is too delicate to withstand infections. Thousands of babies die every year due to this infection. This bacteria spreads very rapidly and covers the whole body, causing acute pain in the muscles, cramps, abnormal muscular afflictions and contractions, convulsions, fever and swelling.

The Essential Oil of Ravensara has certain components like limonene and methyl eugenol (and others) which do not let this happen by killing this bacteria and inhibiting its growth. It can be ingested to let its effect spread evenly throughout the body.

Antispasmodic: People that are suffering from severe coughs, breathlessness, cramps, diarrhea, pulling pain in abdomen, nervous afflictions, or convulsions due to spasm can find a good remedy in this oil. It fights spasms and induces relaxation in muscles and nerves.

Antiviral: This efficient bacteria fighter is a virus fighter too. It stops viral growth by rupturing the cyst (the protective coating on the virus) and then killing the virus inside. It is very good for fighting diseases caused by viruses such as the common cold, influenza, measles, mumps, and pox.

Aphrodisiac: The essential oil of Ravensara has been found to be very good for curing frigidity or sexual dysfunction. It enhances the libido and also helps cure erectile dysfunctions.

Disinfectant: What causes infections? Quite simply, bacteria, fungi, virus and protozoa. As you have probably guessed, Ravensara essential oil is able to stop the growth of these bacteria, fungi, virus and protozoa, and can eliminate them as an ideal disinfectant. It is equally effective both internally and externally. It also disinfects the space within its aromatic reach if used in fumigants, vaporizers and sprays. The added benefits are a sweet fragrance and no adverse side effects like many other synthetic disinfectants on the market.

Diuretic: The diuretic property of the essential oil of Ravensara facilitates the removal of waste substances and toxins from the body by increasing urination, both in frequency and in quantity. It also helps to remove excess water, salt and fat from the body, thus keeping it safe from diseases associated with an accumulation of toxins, including rheumatism, gout, arthritis, acne, and boils. It can also reduce dangerous accumulations of water, known as edema, and salt, which can lead to hypertension and water retention in the body. Furthermore, it makes you feel lighter and facilitates digestion as well.

Expectorant: Being an expectorant means being an agent that can dilute or loosen the phlegm or catarrh deposits in the respiratory system and ease their passage out of the body. An expectorant like Ravensara essential oil is necessary in cases of coughs, congestion, asthma & breathing troubles and heaviness in the chest arising from the hardening of phlegm in the bronchi, trachea, larynx, pharynx and lungs.

Relaxant: The essential oil of Ravensara has been celebrated for centuries due to its relaxing and soothing properties. It is very good at inducing relaxation in cases of tension, stress, anxiety and other nervous and neurological problems. It also calms and soothes nervous afflictions and disorders. Its relaxing effect helps bring healthy and restful sleep to patients suffering from insomnia.

Tonic: The essential oil of Ravensara has a toning and fortifying effect on the body. It facilitates the absorption of nutrients into the body and helps every organ system function properly and more efficiently. In this way, it promotes growth and provides energy and strength. This oil is particularly good for growing children as a growth tonic.

Other Benefits: Ravensara Oil has numerous other benefits. It can be used to treat improper blood and lymph circulation, fatigue, pain in muscles and joints, edema, indigestion, shingles, and herpes. It also has a vulnerary property and helps heal wounds faster by protecting them from infections and crowding of leucocytes and platelets in the affected area.

A Few Words of Caution: This oil is completely safe, with no toxicity, phototoxicity, associated irritation or sensitization. Still, it is not recommended during pregnancy, since it has aphrodisiac properties. This means that it works on certain hormones whose secretion can have certain adverse effects in pregnancy.

Sinus Therapy Mask

I constantly have sinus problems, as I am sure many of you do.
So I created what I call the Sinus Therapy Mask.  It measures
13 inches across which takes it from ear to ear.  Then it is 6"
tall which covers your cheeks and forehead, leaving a space for
the nose.  The warmth alone of the mask when heated helps so
much with sinus problems because the heat creates circulation.
With my love of essential oils I have come up with what I think
is a perfect combination of oils that help ease the pain, the pressure,
the congestion, inflammation and the swelling, as well as gives you
a sense of relaxation.  I use Ravensara, Peppermint and Lavender.
It is gently scented and works wonders for me!  Here is a picture
of mine ... since I get so much relief I thought I would offer them
here too!  They will be priced at $17 each and you can chose a color
theme.  I fill with flax seed gently scented and use flannel fabrics.

Special Order for a woman with a broken back!

This is a special order for a young woman that broke her back in an accident.  She can use the neck/shoulder collar alone or tie it to the longer extention for her back.  She can also use the back piece alone.  We are hoping that this will give her relief from her pain and hope to hear from her soon.  This is a gift from her mother for Christmas!

Benefits of using my therapy collars and special order therapy bags

The benefits of heat therapy are undeniable. It can relieve stiffness and improve circulation by opening blood vessels- relieving pain from arthritis, tendonitits, tennis elbow, sinus headaches, aching feet, shoulder and back pain, and many more conditions! But how does moist heat compare to dry? There are many advantages to using moist therapy over traditional dry heat:

Does Not Dry Out Skin
Dry heat therapy tends to dry out skin. Think about what happens to your skin when it gets too hot inside your house- your skin gets dry and can crack if you do not apply moisturizing lotion. Applying direct heat to your skin will leave your skin drier over time. Moist heat therapy, on the other hand, leaves your skin warmed without drying it out.

Deeper Muscle Penetration
Because moisture transfers heat better than air, moist heat therapy delivers more heat directly to your skin because it loses less heat in the transfer process. The result of this greater heat transfer efficiency is that more of the heat makes its way deep into muscles, joints, ligaments and soft tissue.

Faster Relief of Pain
Due to the deeper muscle penetration, moist therapy relieves pain faster. People who use moist heat therapy report that they start feeling more relaxed faster each time they do the therapy and get better faster overall.

Longer-Term Pain Relief
While people using moist heat therapy tend to report that their pain symptoms are relived faster, they also report that on average the pain relief lasts longer- reducing the need to use this treatment as often. People with chronic conditions like arthritis who use this technique regularly, on average, tend to require moist heat therapy less often than when using dry heat therapy.

My Flax Seed Therapy Bags offer the moist heat therapy to help with longer relief of painful symptoms. In addition the tubular construction helps to keep the heat distributed evenly and lasts longer.
