It is well known among aromatherapy experts, that Essential oils (EO) are very effective in healing says Elizabeth Jones, of the College of Botanical Healing Arts in Santa Cruz, Ca.
Inhaling oils transports the aroma thru the nose to the brain and to the Limbic system which sends it out directly to the nerves; de-stressing and soothing frayed nerves.
Mugwort oil is good for poison ivy and poison oak. Chamomile oil helps with other skin rashes. Dilute and mix your EO with a carrier oil like almond, olive or jojoa oil. (5-10 drops per one ounce of carrier oil)
A small amount of undiluted Lavender oil will cool sunburn fast. A whiff is also calming and lowers blood pressure!
Tea tree, oregano, and eucalyptus oils are all natural antibiotics; they will help eliminate bacteria, virus and fungi naturally! You can use them alone or together, dilute and rub on skin affected.
For hayfever or allergies; geranium, lavender and eucalyptus oils put in a diffuser can help your symptoms. You can also mix 5-10 drops with distilled water in a spray bottle to disinfect a room.
Peppermint oil is a great pain reliever for sprains, strains or joint pains. You can also use a drop of peppermint essential oil rubbed on your temples to help relieve a headache.
