To make a delicious Triple Orange Seaweed Salad, follow these directions.
4 T. dried prepared wakame seaweed
2 c. shredded lettuce (butter lettuce is very good)
2 T. sesame seeds
2 cups pre-cooked rice (combination brown and white)
2 ounces cold pressed olive oil
Sweet orange, blood orange, and/or mandarin essential oils (2 to 8 drops total)
2 t. toasted sesame oil
2 T. Tamari (I prefer Gold Mine Foods live organic variety)
Add seaweed to 1/4 cup water. Let it soak while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Shred lettuce and put in a serving bowl. Add sesame seeds.
Juice the orange. Mix it with olive oil, sesame oil, essential oils, and Tamari. Stir well (use a whisk). When adding essential oils, start with 2 drops and add more to taste. It is easy to add too much, as they are very potent!
Add seaweed to lettuce mixture. Drizzle the orange juice mix over the lettuce and toss thoroughly. Serve immediately.
Makes 2 servings.
Wakame seaweed is a dark green seaweed, just packed with iron, calcium, iodine, folate, and protein. It provides essential minerals, including copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Wakame contains trace elements, and vitamins–especially beta-carotene and vitamin B12.
It is an excellent source of calcium that is easily assimilated by the human body, each 100 grams of wakame contains 150 milligrams of calcium. in addition, wakame contains a high level of magnesium, essential for calcium absorption. It enhances the ability to stimulate the production of calcitonin, the hormone which increases calcium in the bones.
Wakame is a great source for natural vitamin D, which also helps enhance calcium absorption, making it one of the best foods for improving bone health and muscle function.

Spinach Nutrition Facts
- Spinach is high in vitamin C.
- Spinach is high in anti-inflammatory molecules called glycoclycerolipids. Glycoclycerolipids are indispensable for the process of photosynthesis carried out by plants. Research in laboratory animals has shown that glycoglycerolipids from spinach can help protect the lining of the digestive tract from damage, especially damage related to unwanted inflammation.
- Spinach contains some unique anti-cancer carotenoid called epoxyxanyhophylls. Two of these are currently being studied for their ability to protect and regenerate from cancer, neoxanthin and violaxanthin. Both are plentiful in spinach leaves.
- Spinach belongs to the chenopod family, which includes beets, chard, spinach and quinoa. This family continues to show an increasing number of health benefits not readily available from other food families. They benefit our nervous system health (including our specialized nervous system organs like the eye).

Kiwi Nutrition Facts
- Kiwi fruit is packed with more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange.
- Kiwi is an excellent source of vitamin K.
- Kiwi contains a variety of flavonoids and carotenoids that have demonstrated antioxidant activity. Phytonutrient research indicates that kiwi fruit has the ability to protect DNA in the nucleus of human cells from oxidation related damage.
- Kiwis are a good source of potassium.
- Kiwis are an excellent source of dietary fiber. Diets that contain plenty of fiber can reduce high cholesterol levels, and lower the risk of heart disease and heart attack. Fiber is also good for binding and removing toxins from the colon, which is helpful for preventing colon cancer. In addition, fiber-rich foods, like kiwifruit, are helpful for keeping the blood sugar levels of diabetic patients under control.
How to Apply Compress
- To apply a compress, cover the target area with a dilution of essential oil. Take your time and let the oil soak into the skin. You may reapply it until it has coated the skin completely.
- Next, cover the cover the area with a hot, damp towel. Be aware of the temperature–it should be hot, but not hot enough to burn! Cover the damp towel with another dry towel.
- Allow the moist heat to drive the oils into the skin for 10 to 15 minutes. If you are compressing a large area, such as the spine, you may need to reheat the towel once if it gets too cool.
- When the compress feels complete, around 15 to 30 minutes, remove the towels and lightly dry off any residual oil or moisture.
Compresses can be applied to the kidneys, liver, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, thyroid, heart, spine, feet, injuries, sinus area, neck, throat, temples, etc.
They are helpful for relieving the symptoms of colds , flu, and respiratory infection; headaches, migraines, arthritis pain, back pain, myofascia pain, bone pain, and nerve pain; and for relieving stress and creating deep relaxation. They can be helpful for a great variety of conditions, according to the oils you are using.
If you are using a compress on the spine, you may want to begin by “opening” the feet with a light coating of oil. This helps to ground the nervous system and enhance the healing process. Be sure to cover the feet afterward so they do not get chilled.
A Longer Treatment
When the damp, hot towel is applied, cover it first with a hot water bottle, then cover with a dry towel and blanket. This is great for compresses for pain, colds or flu, and deep relaxation.
Hot or Cold?
Heat is the preferred choice for most forms of treatment. Cool or even cold water can be used with injuries that have a lot of swelling or inflammation, as heat will tend to increase the inflammation.
Fever, and a feeling of being overheated will also benefit more from a cool compress.
When applying on the head or near eyes, be careful not to get any oil in the eyes. It will sting! (Use a cotton ball dipped into milk to rub across closed eyelid, to remove oil if it does get in the eyes).
A great way to compress the eyes, is to drop several drops of essential oil into a bowl of warm water. Dip a washcloth into the bowl, then wring it out until it is just damp, no longer dripping. Place the cloth loosely over closed eyes and allow the oils to work without contacting eyes directly.
It is very common for the receiver to feel tingling, or a light burning sensation. This is an indication that the oils are working, and may move around from one location to another. If it becomes too uncomfortable for a very sensitive person, the sensation can be stopped by dusting corn starch over the skin to remove the oil. (This will stop the process of the oil compress).
