AN APOLOGY:
This is the Summer 2015 issue of "The Raindrop Messenger," which was supposed to have been broadcast before the end of July, but is now being sent near the first of September. The next issue will be the Fall 2015 issue, which is scheduled to be broadcast just before the beginning of November 2015. We will try our best to meet that deadline, especially since I will be gone, giving multiple classes in November and December, including a tour of Japan and SE Asia. If we can stay on schedule, the Winter 2016 issue (Vol 14, No. 1) will be out in January.

1. In Case You Heard Any Rumors
~^~^~by David Stewart, PhD

If you have heard any rumors that I, David Stewart, have affiliated myself with any Essential Oil Company other than Young Living Essential Oils, Inc., please disregard them as false because they are untrue and have no basis in truth.

As a Young Living Diamond Distributor, my loyaty to Young Living, and to Gary and Mary Young, is complete and without reservation. If any such rumors become known to you, please send me an email revealing the content and the source. I would appreciate it. Otherwise, just ignore any such reports.

Why would I affiliate with any other company when we are long established with Young Living, whose oils are without equal in purity and therapeutic quality anywhere in the world, and whose corporate integrity is as good as it gets?

Thanks
Dave


2. Essential Oil Alternatives for Pest Control in Your Garden
~^~^~by Joanne Schwarm

Instead of chemical pesticides in your garden year – think about using essential oils instead. At an event I attended some time ago I heard about using essential oils for pest control, but did not remember what to use for what. I decided to do some research and now I am passing this on to you. Also as the heat increases throughout the Summer months and into the Fall, remember to hydrate yourself with plenty of water.

ESSENTIAL OILS FOR THOSE LITTLE VARMITS IN YOUR GARDEN
When these nasty little insects find a home on your plants – take a spray bottle with 4 oz water - add an essential oil and mist the plant. Don’t over-spray at one time. Several applications a day or two apart usually is sufficient. The Young Living Item # and 2015 wholesale prices are given for each oil:

CEDARWOOD: (#3509, $11.25)
- aphids, lice, slugs, snails, and weevils.
HYSSOP: (#3566, $25.25)
- aphids, cabbage root fly, moths, and slugs.
LAVENDER: (#3575, $23.50)
- black fly, black flea beetle, fleas, flies, greenfly, mosquitos, moths, and white fly.
LEMONGRASS: (#3581. $11.25)
- black flea beetle, fleas, mosquitos, and ticks.
PATCHOULY: (#3608, $33.75)
- gnats, snails, weevils, and wooly aphids.
ROSEMARY: (#3626, $14.75)
- cabbage root fly and carrot fly
SAGE: (#3632, $28.25)
- cabbage root fly, cutworm, nematodes, ticks, and white fly.
SPEARMINT: (#3614, $10.75)
- ants, aphid caterpillars, black fleas, beetles, gnats, lice, moths, and plant lice.
TANSY (IDAHO): (#3656, $29.50)
- black fly, carrot fly, fleas, flies, greenfly, mosquitos, and white fly.
THYME: (#3650, $33.75)
- bean beetle, cabbage root fly, cutworm, and ticks.

RESEARCH REGARDING NATURAL REPELLENTS
There is documentation these alternatives do work as well – or better – that pesticides. Researchers at Michigan State University found that certain plant extracts were more effective at repelling deer, rabbits, and squirrels than commercial chemical controls.

A four-year study reported that the most effective extracts came from common garden plants: daffodils, hot pepper, bearded irises, catnip, and peppermint.

REMEMBER OUR FOUR-LEGGED FRIENDS
Here are recipes for a flea and a tick repellant that is said to have worked well. One user said that her pups smelled like furniture polish. (hmmm – not too bad)

FLEAS: clary sage, citronella, peppermint, lemon. You can add vodka (!) or alcohol and water for a spray.

TICKS: geranium, lavender, myrrh, bay, grapefruit, vodka, and distilled water. (Caution) Be aware that Clove & Pine, among others, are neurotoxic to dogs, so check your "Essential Oils Desk Reference," or the "Reference Guide to Essential Oils," for safety.
You can use the essential oils neat, rubbing along the belly and chest, feet and legs of your pet. They seem to like the smell. Use it every day, especially before they go outside.

You can also used these oils on yourself, especially lavender and geranium, to repel ticks when you go out-of-doors. You can apply the oil on your wrists and ankles, around the cuffs of your clothing, and also around your neck and waist.

STAY COOL WITH FLORAL WATERS: YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN!
To cool down this summer, make your own Floral Waters with: Lavender, Wild Tansy, Peppermint, Spearmint, Basil, or whatever you like. Take a spray bottle. Fill with water. Add your favorite essential oil(s). Shake well and refresh yourself. You may even want to chill the bottle in the freezer, a little, for an even greater cooling sensation.

This Summer is Almost Over, but will be back next Year –
be prepared.

3. Laughter is Good for Healing
by David Stewart, PhD

"A merry heart doeth good, like a medicine..." Proverbs 17:22

Many years ago, Norman Cousins, who was the editor of "The Saturday Evening Post," contracted a deadly cancer. He healed himself by laughter, emersing himself daily in comedy films and things that made him laugh. More recently, Ed Asner, who played the editor-in-chief as Lou Grant on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, came down with a lethal cancer and followed the successful example of Norman Cousins, watching comedies and engaging in other activities that made him laugh. Ed Asner also overcame his cancer.

Just a little over a year ago April 2014), my wife, Lee, was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer that had metastisized into her liver, lungs, and lymphatic system. It was considered terminal with a prognosis of only a few more months to live. The medical doctors were urging immediate surgery with chemotherapy as the only chance for survival. Instead, Lee never went back to the doctor, but instead, purchased a ticket to the Nova Vita Clinic in Ecuador to receive large amounts of essential oils and other natural therapies. Now, over a year later, she has been tested and there is no trace of cancer. You can read all about her protocols in a back issue of "The Raindrop Messenger," Vol. 12, No. 2, (Jul-Aug-Sep) Summer 2014, accessible from the home page of www.RaindropTraining.com.

Besides vitamins, minerals, essential oils, and various dietary restrictions, she also employed a lot of laughter. We didn't get to watch any comedy TV in Ecuador, but Lee and I joked with each other throughout every day and laugher a lot. When we returned home to Missouri, in the United States, after a ten-week stay at Nova Vita, Lee was 90% recovered, but not completely. You can read about what she did after returning home in the article mentioned above. But having access to American television again, Lee began to watch TV Comedies as much as possible every day. The show that makes her laugh the most if "Everybody Loves Raymond." She also watched reruns of "Everyone Loves Lucy," "The Carol Burnett Show," and others. She attributes her complete healing to her cheerful state of mind, reinforced and maintained by the comedy available on TV, as well as to her natural protocols and diet.

There is a long list of attributes and benefits to laughter. Here is a sample:

Laughter and worry cannot coexist.
Laughter reduces stress, including the levels of hormones associated with stress.
Laughter enhances the immune system, and makes it function better.
Laughter stimulates physical healing.
Laughter is rejuvenating and regenerating.
Laughter relaxes muscles throughout the body.
Laughter reduces pain in both duration and intensity.
Laughter is the opposite of anger. (Mothers have long known that if their child begins to lose their temper, they can stop the process by doing something to make their child laugh.)
Laughter balances brain hemispheres--left and right--the rational and the emotional sides of the brain.
Laughter reduces blood pressure.
Laughter can alleviate the discomfort of the flu or the common cold.
Laughter is aerobic, and oxygenates the body and brain.
Laughter makes you sing better. (Lee is our Church Choir Director and there is always a lot of joking and laughter during our practices. People comment on how good our choir sings.)
Laughter is a gentle and beneficial cardiac workout.
Laughter helps you cope with the daily challenges of life.
Laughter enhances your creativity. (Mozart, one of the most prolific composers in history, had a good sense of humor and liked to joke.)
Laughter is good for relationships of all kinds.
Laughter is sexy.
Laughter opens the heart.
Laughter makes learning easier. (As a teacher and college professor, I always made it a point to evoke at least one good laugh from every class.)
Laughter gives a glipse of freedom from the mind and the restrictions of a rational world.
Laughter is a Spiritual experience, a brief touch of Joy, which is one of the attributes of God, and which leads to another Divine attribute, Love.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT CARE PROGRAMS

This program may change your life if you are willing to try something new and be open. I love how gentle and graceful my healing was and how wonderful to have hope again.
~ Lisa Marie Belter, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This class was very enlightening. I would recommend it to everyone. It is nice to know that there is an alternative to medicine.
~ Tiffany Slusher, Minford, Ohio

As a Medical Doctor, I would suggest very highly that all medical practitioners, medical students, and residents should be exposed to programs like this.
~ Andrew Sears, M.D., Saginaw, Michigan

I can say from experience that the complete version of Raindrop, as taught in CARE Seminars, is the very best. CARE training allows a person to completely grasp the meaning of every technique and lesson taught so a person can carry out, with true value and with deep spirituality, their own facilitations using CARE methods. I am confident that I have learned the most effective way to assist others on their journey to optimum health."
~ Colleen Coleman, Sherwood, Oregon

Since I can remember I could not seem to hear what others could hear. As a result I was labeled as a slow learner. At the CARE Seminar, the Instructor asked if he could demonstrate the Vitaflex Ear Technique on me using helichrysum oil. So I took out my hearing aid and he gave his demonstration to the class. That night when I turned on my computer I had to decrease the volume by three-quarters of the setting I normally use as it was too loud for me. The next day I did not wear my hearing aid to class and for the first time I did not strain to hear.
~ Vickie Hornbuckle, Piedmont, Kansas
This seminar was beyond my highest expectations! It opened up incredible insights and understandings! In addition we learned one Vitaflex technique that 'cured' my scoliosis with one application.
~ Patricia B. Hayes, Bath, Michigan

My experience in this class was very precious and a blessing! The instructor poured out her love all day long amongst us. She touched my heart. I would love to have more of my dear friends in Europe receive this wonderful experience.
~ Gabriele Hauser, M.D., Vienna, Austria

This program has changed my life. I feel as if I have been waiting all of my life for this door to open so I could walk through into my destiny. Usually I would go to a seminar and in a few days, I would go back to my old habit patterns, but not this time. The next day after the emotional release class I woke up totally free from a fear I had for years. God is such a wonderful Father to prepare these healings for us in such a simple way as offered through CARE's ministry. I will forever be thankful. And one more thing. My block towards chemistry is gone. Really gone!I did not look forwardto the class. I actually dreaded it. Now, I am looking forwardto taking it again and becoming a teacher! Miracles happen all the time! Shalom.
~ Maria DeShields, St. Louis, Missouri

A fabulous reintroduction to the oils, the chemistry, and life in general. The instructor was amazing.
~ Jyll Johnstone, DiReno, Italy

The CARE Intensive exceeded my high expectations. All of the instructors were great. Their tremendous caring and willingness to give of self was always evident. This program provides an opportunity to build on previous knowledge or start new if unfamiliar with essential oils. It also enables you to participate in personal growth and meet wonderful people.
~ Jeannette Vaupel, RN, Genoa, Illinois

Thank you so much for bringing the raindrop training to Australia. I absolutely loved the course. It was a turning point for me. I hope that you can come back to Australia ASAP.
~ Sonya Vassallo, Beechworth, Victoria, Australia

I am so grateful for CARE. This workshop really truly builds confidence and teaches the techniques in a way that could be learned by anyone. Thank you! It has been so fulfilling!
~ Robyn Karima Grant, Nakuop, British Columbia, Canada

This seminar will change your life! I have no suggestions for this seminar. It was fantastic.
~ Diane Koepp, Belle Plaine, Minnesota

This is a program for everyone. It will change their lives for a much better future. Makes you a new person who belongs to God. Thank you.
~ Dermot Bailey, Niestetal, Germany

It was great! I loved it! Until I took this seminar I didn't have a clue that oils could do so much! Thank you!
~ Susan J. Knowles, Caldwell, West Virginia

We traveled a long way for the CARE Seminar (from England to California). The whole workshop was interesting, enlightening, excellent, and very enjoyable. It was well worth every mile traveled!
~ Susan Neary, Clitheroe, Lancashire, England

This training is an absolute must for all those involved in oils. Truly awe inspiring!! We received knowledge and healing from above.
~ James Claps, Grove Village, Illinois

This workshop has been the most rewarding learning experience since my introduction to essential oils. The wealth of material and wonderful personal experiences and knowledge shared was beyond my expectations.
~ Aziyza Shabazz, St. Croix, Virgin Islands

Three days after receiving raindrop in the CARE class I received a healing from a painful shoulder and left arm. I am very excited what the oils do for people.
~ Meg Hueslcamp, Brenham, Texas

Millions of thanks to you. I am already lining up students to come to your next classes. Everything was taught in such a simple manner that even a child could follow and do raindrop technique. May God bless you richly in your work.
~ Kiew Lo, Carlingford Court, New South Wales, Australia

Words are not adequate to express how great this class is. Everyone was inspired and blessed by every section of the class. We didn't want it to end.
~ Connie Allen, Lewiston, Idaho

The CARE Intensive was so great! It was amazing. During the three days we all bonded together and it seemed like we were all a big family. I found the chemistry class to be very interesting, which shocked me as I never really enjoyed science before. You explained everything so well that now I will feel more confident in using my oils and sharing them. Thank you for the experience and the training.
~ Jamie Brown, Lakewood, California

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for such a wonderful program. Not only have I learned a great deal of new skills, I have grown as a spiritual being. All this in just three days! Thank you.
~ Kim McMahon, Bronte Beach, New South Wales, Australia

I have taken the CARE Classes twice now and it continues to get better. The magnitude of information is incredible. I feel like I could repeat and repeat.
~ Carol Garvey, Oakville, Ontario, Canada

I wouldn't change anything about the CARE class. It is perfect. This little group is really special. We were supported by so many angels and the presence of the highest spirit. I love this training!
~ Vijay Churfuerst-Hanzal, Leobendorf, Austria

Where and How to Obtain Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

If you are a Young Living Essential Oils Distributor or a Young Living Customer, you have chosen to avail yourself of the world’s finest oils of Biblical grade quality. If You are not a YL Member and have a friend or relative who is, you should approach them and ask how you can become affiliated with Young Living and purchase these oils.

You may also contact any Certified CARE Instructor (CCI) who would be happy to enroll you in Young Living. The addresses, phone numbers, and email information for all CARE instructors are given on the CARE website, http://www.RaindropTraining.com. Perhaps there is a CCI living near to you who would serve as your sponsor and assist you in learning about how to use the oils.

If you do not know of anyone in your community or family that sells these oils, you may also choose to enroll with Dr. David and Lee Stewart as your sponsor at http://bibleoils.YoungLivingWorld.com or by contacting Young Living at (800) 371-3515 and enroll over the phone asking that David and Lee Stewart, YLEO Member #261333, be your sponsors. You may also call David or Lee directly at (573) 238-4273.

You cannot practice therapeutic aromatherapy with healing results unless you use properly produced and packaged oils. Most oils easily available from retail outlets are food or perfume grade oils and do not have the healing properties that Young Living oils possess.
