thanks badlips..sure i still have faith in t-tree oil in gentler dilutions so won't dismiss it all together and forever. very intriguing is the idea of diverting ones attention elsewhere on the body ie the naval as a possible source for investigation and treatment. And why butter? wish i had knowledge in anatomy nerve pathways and such like to find a possible connection. i don't dismiss old folk lore either some of which has found its place in remedies today..in india people kept suggesting butter for my lips.. so why the naval * whats there or behind it what nerve merdians radiate from and connected to it? etcetc.
anyway * that one is puckering up my lips in an air kiss to say thanks!
