Essential Oil Treatment for Indigestion

In the last three months, the essential oils healer has treated 25 patients. They included monks, nuns and visitors to the monastery. He made 35 visits to see the patients and there were 23 visits where the patients came to see him. The healer writes: “The symptoms were mainly due to cold or flu (rhinitis, runny or stuffed nose, headache, cough, sore throat, fever, mouth sores) but less so than previous years. Some patients also had symptoms of back pain, back ache, sciatica, knee or leg pain, bone pain, burns, cuts, small wounds, skin boils, indigestion or food poisoning, and a few had congested chest (due to stress), asthenia, lack of energy, numbness in legs, restlessness and anxiety, giardia intestinal parasite.”

“Remedies I provided ranged from essential oil blends (home-made and ready-made: to inhale, to ingest, for massage), to homeopathy (single or multi ingredients), to vitamins (single or multi), aspirin and paracetamol, and to general advice on diet and living habits.”

One of the essential oil blends that he uses is the following: 

To relieve indigestion:
basil (2 drops)
lemon (1 drop)
peppermint (1 drop)
total: 4 drops, on a small piece of biscuit that you place under your tongue and ingest slowly. Take 3 times per day (before meals), for one to two days.

Thank you!

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your generous support!! The school year is currently in session in Afghanistan, and rather than give out a partial scholarship, Creating Hope International will work with our Afghan partners to select a deserving student to receive the scholarship you helped to fund for the school year when it begins April  2015. We will update you in the spring of 2015 with information about the student who receives this scholarship.

Again, thank you for your kind donation. This scholarship will allow one poor student to receive an education that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to. Your donation will help to change the course of one young Afghan’s life. Thank you.

Happy Losar and Tibetan New Year!

BCWC Students
BCWC Students

This month the students are participating in Losar festivities. Losar (Lo ,meaning year and sar meaning new) will begin on February 19, 2015. This day will not only begin the Tibetan lunar new year, but will initiate the Year of the Wood Sheep. (People born in 1955 or 2015 are Wood Sheep.) There will be two weeks of special rituals and ceremonies marking the beginning of the New Year. In the Bon tradition, the first month of the Tibetan year is considered a holy month and is called Bum-Gyur Da-Wa. During this holy month (in 2015 : February 19 to March 20), all prayers and practices are multiplied 100,000 times.

From the students at the Bon Children’s Welfare Center, we wish you Happy Losar and Tibetan New Year!
