  1. I have never heard about the cone flower before. But if it helps the immune system it is a plus. I don’t like taking medicine so this is right up my alley. You are a good help to put these things before people because most of us would never know what is available to us. Looking forward to more healthy natural products. Thanks.

    1. Hello Ronnie, thanks for your kind words and I hope to help and enjoy the company of many herb and flower enthusiasts here!

      I just heard of Strep Throat sufferers using it and other remedies instead of antibiotics. I am searching for simple ways to avoid the need for these. I know sometimes they are a matter of life and death. Let’s just be sure we are not creating super bugs. I may present this as a topic for discussion. For instance, there are pain relieving essential oils I am learning about, that reduce inflammation. This will, no doubt be very controversial. I want to explore everything, but carefully.

      Enjoy your cone flower / Echinacea tea and tinctures and be well! Lynne

  2. Good information here on essential oils, I am familiar with Echinacea it is good for injuries.
    Tried to find your page on herbs for cooking as I am keen to try but had no luck.

    1. Hello George and right you are. I have only alluded to it on my favorite uses page, regarding Basil. I have not created a full post on this topic yet! Yesterday, I was working some on this. I have found some yummy looking pictures of herbs sprinkled on pasta and pizza. I found an unusual picture featuring a tort with tomatoes! Presently, we feel an urgent need for research regarding COPD and Asthma sufferers. You have inspired me to really get busy over the weekend! I am glad for the interest in these topics, including cooking!

      Thank you very much! Lynne

  3. Hi Lynne,
    I agree with you that quality essential oils extracted naturally from different parts of plants are good healthcare solutions. I personally use olive oil to moisturize my hair and skin, and rose essential oil in healing minor wounds and relieving muscle cramps. Good to know that corn flower brings immunity in a flu situation. Thanks 🙂

  4. I love essential oils, and I keep several bottles at home. It helps with stress, relaxation, calming my thoughts and promoting well-being.
    I make small pillows , fill them with rice and add several drops of essential oils ( you can choose the smell you like) to the rice, and keep those pillows in bed and on my desk. I also planted some mint under my bedroom window – it smells delicious!
    Thanks for your article!

    1. This sounds wonderful Olina! I will borrow your idea and pass it along to seamstress friends, including my mother! She loves to sew little projects. Hoping you and yours are safe during this threat! Thanks for the comment. Lynne

  5. I don’t know that essential oil and herbals could give so many uses. I think this can be very great information especially when we don’t want to use drugs as a remedy and this doesn’t have any side effect. Our nature creates all the cure. Thanks for sharing it.

    1. Henryan, I see that you like to research on ways to relieve back pain. I hope you noticed my story about the uses of Geranium, Clove and Bergamot oils for a mild assistant for back pain. Sometimes we all work our backs a little too much for our fitness level. This blend will sometimes be sufficient to help one get to sleep, in such cases, without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. This is wonderful, since it’s a shame to have to suffer the side effects of such medicine for a minor ache or pain.



  6. Hi, Lynne. I 😍 love essential oil too. They are close with healing herbal I wrote about. I often find that in specific diseases better if we use the oil form to relieve the symptoms. Your website is beautiful and informative. Wish you get a lot of success with this website.

    1. Melani, thanks for your kind words and feel free to offer some of your knowledge, if you have had an especially great experience with using E.O. I would be glad to link to your website! Please consider doing a guest blog, since I love the knowledge base that I see you have, as well.
