I have a friend with trigeminal neuralgia, mostly affecting the maxillary and mandibular facial areas. I've been asked to create something that might help. Originally I was planning to do an oil but on second thought, have decided that if she wants to put on makeup, it might be nice to use a light lotion that will absorb easily so she can apply it at the beginning of the day and give it time to work rather than put it on at night and then know it's also being absorbed by your precious linens! So I'm using fixed oils of Sea Buckthorn Berry and Evening Primrose which I'm infusing with a bit of Calendula and for the essential oils I'm using Marjoram, Peppermint, Geranium, Blue Chamomile, Helichrysum and Lavender.
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
