Lemon And Parsley Home RemediesWritten by Lee Dobbins
You might think of lemon and parsley as great garnishes for your drink glass and plate, but did you know that you can use them to ease symptoms of common minor ailments?
Sure, lemon makes a good drink and even tastes good squirted on fish, but you might want to make sure you have some on hand for more than dinner. The lemon can be your best friend when you have a common headache. Simply cut a long strip of rind and put it on your forehead – rub in inside white part and then fasten it to your head. Sure, you’ll look a little nutty but who cares as long as it gets rid of ache!
Lemon peel is not only good for head, but for feet too! One age old remedy for corns is to apply a lemon peel (white side against corn) to corn and affix it so that it stays on overnight. You can remove it during day, but repeat each night for 7 days.

Raindrop Technique is a procedure for applying therapeutic grade essential oils to feet, back and spine. It is a form of aromatherapy. Raindrop icorporates certain Native American concepts, including a special form of massage called "feather stroking" which is simular to a massage technique called "effeurage".
Another aspect of Raindrop is "Vita Flex," a therapeutic maneuver adapted from Oriental acupuncture, acupressure and reflexology. The term "Vita Flex," meaning "vitality through reflexes," was coined by Stanley Burroughs, who studied Oriental Medicine and brought technique to West.
During portions of Raindrop procedure, therapeutic grade essential oils are dropped neat (undiluted) on back along spine from a height of about six inches. The techniques of Raindrop performed with non-therapeutic grade essential oils is not a true representation of method.
