June 2013 Botanicalsforbeauty Update

I am now working on my second week of physical therapy due to the surgery that was performed on my thumb (because of the damage done by arthritis).  It is a gradual process of stretching the tendon so I can once again use my thumb.  However, I still have arthritis in the other 4 fingers plus in the other hand and that will have to be addressed at some point in time as well.  For now as long as I can keep the use of my hands to a bare minimum and wear copper bracelets that my friend Judy A. made for me I can at least take care of myself while my boyfriend is at work.

My time is being spent learning to use Dragon on various sites and to accomplish various goals, plus doing a little planning and research.  I am working hard to find a blend of essential oils that will counteract my fatigue, the only treatment that I have ever found to be fully effective in making me feel fully vital and energetic was a homeopathic doctor that I can no longer find and unfortunately I had to quit treatment early because I lost my job and could no longer afford to pay.  There are some others but whether or not they use the same equipment and techniques and have the same "remedies" I wouldn't know.  I am determined to get better, but like many others who are suffering, money can be the obstacle that stands in the way of trying something that may or may not work.

I already have my eyes on the lookout for items and gift set packaging to purchase for the Christmas season. I am debating on whether or not to offer a men's cologne and a women's spray perfume using grape alcohol as a base.  Grape alcohol is not easy to find so that could present a challenge with stocking the items.  I am also considering adding African black soap as an item that can be custom made to order.  There are one or two other surprises that I am considering that I think I will hold back on for a little while.  Just wanted to let everyone know that I have not disappeared.

I will return to my Tuesday funnies starting this Tuesday.
