Update from Dolanji, India

Dear Friends,

We have received a report from the monk in charge of the essential oils project at the Bon Monastery in Dolanji, India. He says:

“Thank you so much for your continued support of our essential oils project. In early June I returned to France, and am now back at the monastery with a fresh one-year visa. My young assistant has left the monastery and monastic life. He has decided to return to the worldly life. I wish him a happy and fulfilling journey. After the time we spent together, I think that he will remember all that he has learned about essential oils and will use them in his new life. 

The weather is very pleasant now; not too hot and not too cold. Because of this nice weather, patients have been rare! It has given me a chance to take inventory of our oils and to let you know which oils we are in need of.  Initially, we need 20 or 24 3 ml glass bottles, and 30 ml of the essential oil Mandravasarotra (or Saro).

This oil is a wonderful antiviral, and a good neurotonic, which can be used to figure infections of all kinds. According to a recently published book, Mandravasarotra is a perfect substitute for the ravintsara essential oil (which can be difficult to obtain due to scarcity) for all immunity-related health issues.

I have a current case which I thought you might find interesting. Two days ago, a 55 year old man came to me complaining of congested nose, sinuses and lungs, and of upper and lower respiratory infection. The man had a fever and a lack of sleep due to the breathing difficulty. Although I indicated to the patient that I thought 3 or 4 visits per day would be necessary, it appears that his 2 daily visits to me were sufficient for healing. Tonight, after only 6 visits, this patient is feeling so much better. An allopathic nose spray is clearing his nose, and an essential oil treatment is proving effective against the infection.

Thank you so much for your support. Essential oils are wonderful. Every day I feel so fortunate to be able to use their healing properties for treatments.”

The monk also included a list of essential oils that he was in need of, which we have been able to provide to him, thanks to this project. He also sent us a picture of himself sitting in front of his essential oils, and was very happy that he now has 83 different oils in 340 bottles.

 Thank you so much for all of your support! It is because of you that he is able to heal those at the monastery who come to him. Thank you!!
