Don't worry I'm not going to post the pictures. I'm a bit of a doubting thomas when it comes to claims like these so I took the photo purely for my own benefit. When I opened the packet the smell nearly knocked me out, it reminded me of something mum used to use way back in my childhood, it was very strong. After a few minutes of them being on my feet started tingling and burning slightly, not unpleasant but a bit strange. I put socks on over them because if they were going to be disgusting I didn't want to have to wash my sheets. I had a really good nights sleep and totally forgot I had them on till I woke this morning at 5.30 a.m. Ugh, what a sight and the smell was stronger. The website says use every night till the toxins are all gone from your body, probably three or four nights, thats $24 but I suppose thats cheap if it does its job. I must say my feet are still tingling, especially where the patches were and the right foot more than the left, which is strange since I had put it over where the reflexology point for the gallbladder and pancreas is.
I found the that tree in a library book, the photo they used was exactly like the one I took and they had a reference to it saying it looked stunning against a blue sky as well. It is a
Tabebuia Argentea - Chrysantha or Crysotricha, one is more gold than the other. Since it doesn't grow very tall and isn't a dense tree it might be fine for me to plant them on the bedroom side of the house. They all seemed to have fared well in the cyclone. Cheryl - the jacarandas are just starting to show their colours, they will be glorious soon. I saw one that appeared to have pink blossoms just coming on.
PS: Just googled the tree and its part of the Jacaranda family and there is a pink one as well. No wonder I love it so.
