However, some side effects may occur with the use of peppermint oil, such as heartburn or allergic reactions.

This wonderfully scented essential oil is an effective household remedy for so many women and childrens’ conditions from pain relief, to soothing anxiety and stress, reducing swelling and inflammation, and sedating the nervous, this stuff is a natural first aid.
Geranium is also renowned for healing burns, wounds, and skin ulcers and it’s even used to soothe the sore breasts of lactating mothers. You can even use it safely for all types of skin conditions including dry eczema, burns, shingles, ringworm, lice, acne and herpes. I actually had an opportunity to use it for my children’s lice and it worked beautifully (believe me, I checked their little heads extremely thoroughly each day after school!)  It sounds incredible for one simple essential oil, but even modern medicine has recently validated the efficacy of geranium for treating pain.
A recent study on 30 adults with post-herpetic neuralgia were assigned to receive one of five topical treatments (100% geranium oil, 50% geranium oil in mineral oil, 10% geranium oil in mineral oil, mineral oil only, or 0. 025% capsaicin cream and measurements of spontaneous and evoked pain one a scale of 0 (no pain) to 100 (worst possible pain) were taken at 2, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45, and 60 minutes following application of the respective topical treatment.   Pain was found to be reduced in all participants receiving geranium oil and the degree of pain reduction was proportional to the amount of geranium oil in the topical mixture, so those using 100% geranium oil had greater pain relief than those using 10% geranium oil.
The researchers reported that topical peppermint oil (Mentha piperita) or licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) may also be useful for neuralgia.   Considering how well it worked for nerve pain, I’m definitely planning on enjoying the smell of geranium on a regular basis in my home, for whatever reason I can.

Wal-Mart Cuts IPhone 3GS Price to $97

Posted by: Flirtation Creations  /  Category: Apple Inc, iPhone

Computerworld — Wal-Mart (WMT) today dropped the price of Apple’s (AAPL) 16GB iPhone 3GS by $100 to $97, according to the retailer’s Web site.
Multiple reports, including from the Associated Press and the Wall Street Journal , had said that the giant retailer’s new price would go into effect Tuesday and run indefinitely. As with all iPhones, customers buying the lower-priced 3GS must commit to a two-year contract with AT&T.

Wal-Mart’s Web site listed the new price on the site at 6 a.m. Eastern time today. At 2 a.m. EDT Tuesday, the site had still posted the 16GB iPhone 3GS at $197, a $2 savings over Apple’s and AT&T’s $199.
Wal-Mart was not available for comment late Monday.
The move will likely be seen as the best evidence yet that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will unveil the next iPhone June 7, the opening day of the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
It’s unknown when Apple would start selling the next-generation iPhone. However, if it sticks to last year’s timetable, Apple will launch its newest iPhone Friday, June 18.
Although Wal-Mart’s timing may be unexpected, the price cut is not: When Apple introduced the iPhone 3GS in early June 2009, it immediately slashed the price of the previous model, the entry-level 8GB iPhone 3G, to $99. Apple and AT&T continue to sell the iPhone 3G at that price.
Most analysts expect that Apple will repeat the move this year: When it unveils the new smartphone, Apple will drop the price of the iPhone 3GS to $99. If so, Wal-Mart would retain its current $2 price advantage over Apple and AT&T.
Rumors that bolstered that speculation hit several Apple and technology blogs earlier Monday. The Boy Genius Report , for example, claimed that its sources said Apple had stopped shipping the 8GB iPhone 3G to AT&T stores, and that further production orders for the 2008-era smartphone would not be placed.
The disappearance of the iPhone 3G makes sense, not only because it makes way for a cut-rate iPhone 3GS, but also because the older model is not able to multitask , the flashiest new feature in iPhone OS 4, the mobile operating system upgrade that Apple previewed last March and promised to release this summer.
