Rabies is a viral infectio that is transmitted by the saliva of an infected animal, usually stray dogs and cats. Litle kittens popping their heads over the tops of cardboard boxes may look very sweet in the market but don't even think about touching them or going near. Licks on a small cut or open wound and licks on the mouth, nose or lips can also transmit the virus, so do make sure your children are well aware ofthe dangers. Wash thoroughly as outlined for animal bites, then apply thyme and the strongest alcohol you have. Get to the hospital as soon as possible.

FISH

Poisonous fish and marine animals carry their venom mainly in their tentacles and spines. These ca be extremely painful to extract and the risk of infection is always a problem, espically in the polluted waters.

Any visible spines should be removed and the area bathed in salt water, then apply neat thyme. For stings, wash the area in cold water and apply neat chamomile immediately.

PORTUGUESE MAN-OF-WAR

The stings are extremely painful and cause shock, cramp and vomiting. Remove any of the remaining tentacles and wash the area with whatever water you have. Then apply neat lavender all over the area and as the tissues absorb it, apply some more. When you get home wash the area with soap and water and apply chamomile, and continue applying lavender and chamomile every three hours for twenty-four hours. Keep the person warm and in bed or rested. Give plenty of warm liquids and Rescue Remedy(a homeopathic preparation that is widely available). Massage the whole body with the following oil once a day.

Eucalyptus

10 Drops

Peppermint

2 Drops

Geranium

10 Drops

Dilute in 30 ml vegetable oil

JELLY FISH

The small common jelly fish can give a slight sting with a reddening effect. Wash the area thoroughly as soon as you can with soap and water and apply 1 drop of chamomile or lavender oil and then ice.

SEA URCHINS

If you happen to be unlucky enough to tread on a sea urchin the most important thing is to get all the spikes out. As these are extremely brittle and break easily, do be careful about it - and make sure that whatever you use to dig them out is sterilised first. After removing all the spikes and washing the area thoroughly apply 1 drop of neat thyme every three hours, for twelve hours. If the spikes prove difficult to get out buy a Paw Paw fruit, use the inside of the skin as a poultice. The enzymes in the fruit help to dissolve the traces of spike left in the skin and also soothe the area. The pain can be treated by using equal parts of these oils.

Chamomile

10 Drops

Lavender

10 Drops

Eucalyptus

10 Drops

Diluted in 30mls Vegetable oil. Alternatively, use 2 drops of each - a total of 6 drops - to a teaspoon of oil.

STING RAYS

Treat the sting as for sea urchins but apply lavender oil immediately, in addition to the thyme. The pain can be intense and last up to forty-eight hours.

BEES

Bee stings are painful and may cause fever and headaches; an allergic reaction can further cause swelling, redness and rash. Try to remove the sting and apply a cold compress of chamomile to the area. Leave it for several hours if possible but if the sting is in an awkward place just hold the compress to it for as long as possible. In both cases, apply 1 drop of neat chamomile three times a day for two days.
