Essential Oils, an Expanding Method of Treatment

In November, I traveled to Dholanji, India to visit Menri Monastery and the monk, who is the essential oil healer for the monastery and the Tibetan community around the monastery. I delivered the oils provided by all of your donations-- thymus thujanol, cinnamomum cassia (bark), ledum groenlandicum, cinnamomum verum (leaf), and two oil mixtures from Young Living Essential Oils that are widely used. 

Yungdrung Tenzin, the self-taught essential oils healer, has now trained another monk, during 20 sessions, to begin using essential oils.  Both Yungdrung Tenzin and the other monk are now treating patients using the oils sent from donors to Global Giving as well as other donors from around the world. Yungdrung Tenzin reports that the young monk apprentice is very creative, practices on himself when he is unsure of a treatment, and then checks in with Yungdrong Tenzin.

 Yungdrung Tenzin, himself, has now expanded the treatments that he offers the monks to include homeopathy, massage and allopathic medicine (first aid for cuts, bruises, headaches, and other minor ailments).

Yungdrung Tenzin and his apprentice are very grateful for the essential oils that were brought through your donations.
