 I was really hoping there would be something starting to pop up in the little herb garden but nothing yet. On the brighter side of things our little Christmas cactus is doing great in its new pot. Its also called a Schlumbergera, I think I will stick with calling it a Christmas cactus. However the this small genus of cacti is one of six species found in the coastal mountains of south-eastern Brazil. These popular house plants can produce flowers in white, pink, yellow, orange, red, or purple!

The new focus of essential oils is on Melaleuca! The leaves from the "tea tree" or Melaleuca tree have been used for centuries, The Aborigines used this for healing wounds, cuts, and skin infections. (Information from Modern Essentials A Contemporary Guide to the Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils Sixth Edition) I have been using Melaleuca to help with fluid on my ear. I have also used Melaleuca to help with ear mites in my dogs ears, makes a very nice ear cleanser for dogs! Melaleuca has many for benefits to offer so make sure to come back as I will be sharing more uses of this great essential oil!
