For those of you who had a chance to read the newsletter with the Restless Leg Syndrome study, here's the first follow-up. I gave Stephanie a 4oz jar of crème containing a 1% dilution of Rosewood, chosen because of the study Robert Tisserand found that said it appeared the chemical component "linalool" in lavender might positively affect RLS. So I made three different cremes, labeling them only as A, B and C and asked her to use A for a week. I chose Rosewood because it has an unusually high content of linalool. Her report? "That first one you gave me? The one labeled A? Absolutely nothing." So things have gotten really interesting. You'd think that one would be a big help, wouldn't you? She's now using the one labeled C and it's the original blend that works for her but minus the Peppermint. I'll keep you posted.
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
