People with colds or sore throats are sniffing a soothing mixture of menthol, peach blossoms, wild roses, eucalyptus, mineral water and olive oil. Or for those who like their medicine straight, sea water mist. Yet, the Zone of Health is in no way out of the mainstream of Soviet medicine. On the contrary, a large labor organization has decreed that the Zone of Health should be spread throughout the country— and in fact similar clinics are being built now in various regions.

It has a peculiar effect in that it seems to cool at the same time that its mild irritant effect produces heat in the area to which it is applied. When eucalyptus, or any other herb, is used in the pure oil form, it is very concentrated, and a much smaller amount is needed than when you're using a simple infusion made from the whole herb. In my opinion, one of our most useful herbs is fennel seed, which comes to us from the Foeniculum vulgare, as a dried, ripe fruit. Our greatest problem is getting enough pure fennel from Asia Minor, where it is commercially cultivated for export.

The Fabric of Reality: The Science of Parallel Universes and Its Implications

David Deutsch (See book keywords and concepts)

There is no simple way of discovering the true nature of planets, given (say) a critique of the celestial-sphere theory and some additional observations, just as there is no simple way of designing the DNA of a koala bear, given the properties of eucalyptus trees. Evolution, or trial and error - especially the focused, purposeful form of trial and error called scientific discovery - are the only ways. For this reason, Popper has called his theory that knowledge can grow only by conjecture and refutation, in the manner of Figure 3.3, an evolutionary epistemology.

Among them are coriander, cypress, dill, eucalyptus, fennel, geranium, ginger, rosemary, and ylang ylang. It is best to choose one or two essential oils to use at a time rather than all of them. Choose based on which odors most appeal to you or how they make you feel. Aromatherapy oils can be used in various ways: put 3-6 drops in bath water; use an aromatherapy diffuser to fill the air with the scent; apply 1-6 drops directly onto the feet (the skin of the feet absorbs oils quickly) or any area of concern; or dilute with massage oil by 15% to 30% and use in massage.

One English brand, for instance, which is quite powerful, contains eucalyptus oil, cubeb (an extract of the berries, I presume), tincture of capsicum (an extract of red pepper in alcohol), extract of glycyrrhiza (licorice), and menthol (the essential oil derived from peppermint). All this is put together in some kind of sugar base, although they don't specify what kind. Many cough drops use honey instead of sugar.

Apple cider vinegar he regards as good for splashing on cuts or sprains. It also makes a great gargle, he says.
