MCT oil (botanical name: caprylic/capric triglycerides): MCTs, also called MCFAs, are medium-chain triglycerides or medium-chain fatty acids. They’re a type of fat that’s most often found in coconut and palm oil as well as some dairy products. MCTs are beneficial fats that are easily digestible and provide energy. Instead of being metabolized through digestion, like most other foods, these fats are processed in the liver to be used as energy. Since the calories are used straightaway, they’re less likely to be stored as fat.
Peppermint oil (botanical name: Mentha piperita): One of the most widely used and versatile essential oils in the world, its signature minty fragrance is refreshing and clean. The oil also helps to increase energy, improve circulation, promote healing, and provide pain relief. Peppermint essential oil is commonly used in dental products, skin-care products, shampoos, soaps, aromatherapy, insect repellent formulations, cleaning products, and food flavorings.
Rick Simpson Oil, aka RSO: In the late 1990s, Rick Simpson was diagnosed with skin cancer. He went to Canadian Health in Nova Scotia, where he lived, and the Dr. took care of the spot on his face, asking him to return in a few months to treat the spots on his neck and shoulder. On his return home from the hospital he was determined to find a natural, plant-based cure for his remaining skin cancer. He knew the healing potential of the cannabis plant and started researching the power of the oils it contains. He was able to extract the oils from the plant himself and started to apply them directly to his skin cancer every few days. Upon Rick’s return to the hospital, the doctor was amazed that he’d completely cured his own skin cancer with the power of the plants.
Rick continued to make the oil and went on to share all of his knowledge to help people around the world cure their illnesses with what’s been dubbed RSO, in honor of this amazing man and his love of helping others. You can read and learn more about Rick and his story at www.phoenixtears.ca.
