Essential Oils to Improve Tibetans' Health

Massage and Essential Oils to Relieve Back Pain

Recently, Yungdrung Tenzin, the self-taught essential oils healer at the Menri Monastery in Dholanji, India, has had several patients with back pain.  Yungdrung Tenzin reports that he uses birch, helichrysum and peppermint essential oils along with massage to alleviate the pain and that the treatment  has been very successful.

Yungdrung Tenzin and his assistants continue to be very grateful for the donations that have allowed new essential oils to be purchased for their use.  As the village that they live in is in a remote area of India, the healers would also be grateful for recommendations and or donations of books in English about essential oils, particularly those that have precise recipes.

Please keep in mind that Wednesday, March 14, 2012 is Bonus Day through Global Giving.  Donations up to $1,000.00 will be provided with a 30% match.  The bonus allotment is $50,000.00 and the period runs from 12:01 AM EST until the funds are exhausted.  So, if you would like your donation to go a little further with the help of Global Giving, give early on March 14th.  Thank you!
