The Baneful Herb, Pennyroyal

Pennyroyal

The oil is poisonous, even in small doses. Pennyroyal oil is traditionally used to treat digestive problems, but it has been shown to damage the liver and can be fatal in large doses. This herb should never be used internally. It is also dangerous for your pets, as they lick their fur and ingest the Pennyroyal.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for June 15 – ‘Smile Power Day’

‘Smile Power Day’ reminds me of the power a smile can pack, especially in regards to bringing health and happiness into our lives. Many years ago I learned an ancient Shamanic healing technique that shares the smile’s power to heal. According to this technique we should visualize a golden light surrounding our livers while seeing a smile there as well. I hadn’t put much stock in this until I read of a Balinese medicine man who teaches putting a smile on the liver during meditation in order to embrace health and happiness. Since this was the second time I’d heard this healing advice, it didn’t take me long to start seeing a smile on my own liver. If you want to detox in a happy way and find health in every smile, simply visualize one on your liver and see that organ as healthy and happy. If that doesn’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will!
