So, life is funny. You know, I never thought I’d be that hippie people laugh about eating placentas, worshiping the Earth...making my daily devotional a barefoot walk out in the forest instead of some church somewhere. It reminds me of all of the beauty, all the joy...and all of the miracles that are. That WE are.
Not only that...but now I encapsulate and tincture placentas for other mamas too, haha! I even make lotions with them too! As funny or disgusting as it seems to most people, the science is there. There are reasons most all living beings (even vegetarian ones) eat consume their own placenta medicine. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for this knowledge and medicine to have been passed to me so that I can pass it on to others!
And all the plants!! How my relationship with them continues to forever change me. Although I’ve never battled an addiction beyond tobacco and food in this lifetime, all of this plants keep reminding me...balance. BALANCE.
I went from addiction to complete disdain for tobacco years ago. I still have a serious aversion to commercial tobacco because of how toxic all the chemicals and additives are! But, just recently, the tobacco Spirit has re-entered my life in such a powerful, positive way, that I feel inclined to share.
Working in my life with the tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, poppy and other plant medicines in unhealthy ways has been teaching me of healthy relationships with each of them...and how to truly tap into the medicine they are.
It’s never the plants that are the problem, it’s the abuse.
That’s why prohibition is madness. Making pieces of nature illegal will never solve anything, only create further problems. It’s the consciousness within the people that needs healed.
What is it within you that causes an unhealthy or disrespectful relationship with plant medicines? How can you come to a place of proper gratitude for the sacred gifts they are?
Tobacco is very grounding, a powerful cleanser and detoxifying medicine among many other medicinal uses when used properly. Humanity’s commercialization and abuse of this sacred plant medicine has led to the creation of cancers and many other health problems. When used properly, it can help heal your body, mind and soul...as can many other plant medicines.
They are our greatest teachers of our own bodies and minds, if we only listen.
When I think of the me a decade ago abusing alcohol, tobacco and cannabis among other things, just looking to “get high” on plants and people...if I only knew then that the energy I was chasing was something I could just BECOME...I wouldn’t have spent so many years living out cycles that didn’t serve me! I used to be constantly trying to fill a void that nothing outside of myself ever could. I’m so grateful to have created such a more powerful and truly gratifying relationship with all of the plant medicines and myself.
There are not enough drugs or sex in the world to compare to the bliss that comes from tapping into your own divinity. You are then able to carry around the pool of Nirvana within your heart that the poppy medicine merely lets us dip our toes into. That’s the kind of work that changes you forever, for the better. Isn’t that what life should be about? Always trying to make it more pleasant for yourself, everyone and everything around you? Not letting other things master you, but master yourself? What else are we creating here worthwhile?
That high, that bliss, that love that people chase abusing plant medicines is always there for us to tap into. As is all the wisdom of all of creation. We don’t need to abuse these sacred medicines to get there, they are just here to help show us the way.
So, thinking on this...I feel called tonight to make a little lotion potion combining the Cannabis, Alcohol, Mapacho & Hape’ Tobacco & Palo Santo plant Spirits with other organic plant oils and butters held in a suspension as medicine to heal, protect and nourish our bodies and minds.
My inspiration behind this potion is my own evolving journey with plant medicines. My intention behind creating it is to inspire other to re-evaluate their own relationships with all of the plant medicines (and chemicals!) abuse.
May we all come to know that we already have and are all we will ever need in the world.
Desire for anything outside of that will inevitably lead to suffering. Plants can show you the path to BLISS and BALANCE...it’s up to you to walk it.
May all the skin my medicine touches be blessed with the wisdom that you are the miracle you’ve been looking for in everything and everyone else around you. But, that’s the thing about gifts like that...you can carry that box of gifts around forever and it will feel like a heavy box of darkness until you open it to find the Light.
*please note that the FDA does not allow me to make this medicine for others. I encourage you to make your own.

We all know that olive oil is extremely tasty and extremely good for you especially when it’s compared to other forms of oil but fewer people will be aware of the ozonated form of olive oil.
Despite not being as well known, ozonated olive oil has been around for some time and has a number of excellent benefits especially for the skin. If you would like to learn more about ozonated olive oil then read on.
WHAT IS OZONATED OLIVE OIL?
Ozonated olive oil was apparently discovered quite accidentally during the early years of the 20th century when tuberculosis was commonly treated by breathing in ozone through an oil.
Following a number of treatments, the oil used turned into a gel which held onto the ozone for a prolonged period of time. This made the oil an excellent healing salve which was used for various health problems.
In 1904 Nikola Tesla became the first person to market ozonated oil and pharmacies across the world started selling it under its commercial name ‘Glycozone’.
Of course, the word ozone these days has negative connotations. We associate it with increasing ozone levels and pollution but the ozone itself is not to blame rather it is the pollutants getting caught inside the ozone.
The ozone actually helps to cleanse the air and although the gas alone is considered toxic and damaging to lung tissue when inhaled, when it is used more selectively it offers some significant benefits.
Ozone therapy has been popular around Europe for many decades where it is used to treat numerous ailments ranging from strokes to dermatitis. In the US, its use as a medical treatment varies between states but it appears to be increasing in popularity while ozonated oils have been researched fairly extensively.
HOW IS OZONATED OIL MADE?
It is produced by using very high quality, cold pressed virgin olive oil which is put through a manufacturing process referred to as ‘ozone injection’. This process involves bubbling the ozone into the oil for a fairly extended period until it is ready for use.
Some companies are known to use a low quality ozone generator which may cause contamination of the oil. For the best quality and most pure form of ozonated olive oil, you should ensure that it was produced with a cold plasma generator rather than a corona generator.
BENEFITS OF OZONATED OLIVE OIL
Ozonated olive oil is most commonly used for the skin. It can be applied directly to the skin in exactly the same way that you would use a skin cream or salve.
It has properties that can help stimulate regeneration of skin cells while also being able to sterilize and clean wounds. Ozonated olive oil can also reduce inflammation, ease irritation and speed up healing.
OZONATED OLIVE OIL FOR THE SKIN
As we have mentioned, ozonated olive oil is mostly used to support healthy skin and treat a wide variety of skin conditions.
1) FOR ACNE AND ECZEMA
As a topical massage paste, the ozonated oil acts as a natural antioxidant which allows for toxins and lactic acid to be released from your pores which cleanses the skin and helps get rid of dirt and bacteria.
This and its antibacterial qualities makes it a useful natural treatment for acne while it is also used effectively to treat many chronic skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. As well as its ability to cleanse the skin, ozonated olive oil helps ease irritation and reduce redness and swelling of the skin.
2) FOR WRINKLES
Because of its antioxidant actions, ozonated olive oil can also be used to eradicate some of the signs of aging like wrinkles and diminish the appearance of age spots.
OTHER USES FOR THE SKIN INCLUDE:
As a moisturizer leave it on for 20 minutes before removing it
To reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks
To relieve sunburn
To treat infections of the sweat glands
Yeast infections of the skin
To break down cellulite
3) OZONATED OLIVE OIL FOR THE TEETH
I would never have thought that olive oil was good for your teeth but if you are one of those people who would prefer to avoid those trips to the dentist, ozonated olive oil may be just what you need.
A study published in 2012 investigated the use of ozonated olive oil to treat certain periodontal conditions in 20 subjects. They found that when ozonated olive oil was used as an adjunctive treatment to root planning or scaling it resulted in significant improvements for the participants who used it. (1)
Experts recommend that you apply it to your gums with a cotton swab or a toothpick or even add a few drops to your toothbrush to brush your teeth with.
4) FOR HERPES
There is no scientific evidence that ozonated olive oil can work as a long term solution for herpes but the internet is awash with anecdotal reports that it is an extremely effective short term treatment.
For cold sores, apply the ozonated oil to the affected area 3 times a day until your sores have subsided.
5) FOR ATHLETES FOOT
If you suffer from Athletes foot or nail fungus, then ozonated olive oil may help.
First soak the feet in the bath or a bowl for ten minutes or so and then dry your feet making sure that you attend to the areas between your toes.
Once they are dried properly, apply your ozonated oil around the affected areas of your feet and toes.
Repeat the process several times a week for at least 3 weeks even after the condition has improved.
6) FOR SORE MUSCLES
If your muscles are sore and aching after a hard day on your feet or an intense workout session, you can rub your ozonated olive oil into your sore muscles to help ease the pain.
7) CUTS, BURNS AND WOUNDS
Ozonated olive oil is often used successfully to treat minor wounds, legions, burns and bites.
A recent study conducted on guinea pigs found that animals treated with ozonated olive oil experienced significant recovery in their wounds compared to animals in the non-ozone group. The researchers concluded that ozonated oil could be used to enhance skin wound healing. (2)
FOR BABY DIAPER RASH
Ozonated olive oil is a safe and natural treatment for your baby’s diaper rash. It contains none of the harmful chemicals found in some over the counter creams and should help ease your baby’s discomfort and ease any swelling or skin wounds.
9) FOR HEMORRHOIDS
Ozonated olive oil is regarded as one of the best natural treatments for painful hemorrhoids. It has soothing qualities and anti-inflammatory properties that will help relieve the pain and heal any breakage in the skin.
10) AS A DEODORANT
It may sound odd but a dab of ozonated olive oil under the armpits can help you smell fresher for longer.
To use it as a deodorant, simply apply it under your arms and anywhere else that is prone to sweat and body odor.
It will help to oxidize the bacteria which leads to body odor.
Try it out and let us know if it works.
BENEFITS OF USING OZONATED OLIVE OIL IN PASTE FORM
An ozonated olive oil paste is produced by extending the injection or bubbling period to three weeks. This process is far more extensive and results in a paste with far greater oxygen levels and ozone saturation than the more common form.
When you massage it into your body, you absorb the ozonide into the tissues which results in the body’s toxins and lactic acid becoming oxidized. It has all the same skin benefits that regular ozonated olive oil has but the effects are even greater.
OZONATED OLIVE OIL SIDE EFFECTS
There are no adverse side effects associated with the topical use of ozonated olive oil.
