Herbal First Aid with Essential Oils

These are 5 pure essential oils, plus one blend that we have come to love over the last 25 years using Aromatherapy as part of our natural healing regime.

1. Lavender – Good on burns, sunburns, scrapes bruises and insect bites – one of the few essential oils that can be applied to skin “neat”, or undiluted. We love it added to Aloe Vera Gel for all skin challenges, including dry skin, sunburn,  itchy skin, PLUS it helps deter insects!

2. Lemon – Detoxifies the body, purifies drinking water and, along with peppermint and lavender, helps fight allergies. Can also be used in natural insect repellant.

3. Peppermint – Helps relieve headaches when used with lavender, sharpens mentality and is also useful for conditions such as asthma, diarrhea, indigestion, heartburn and itchy skin. Some people are senstive to Peppermint oil, so it is best mixed with a carrier oil, Aloe Vera Gel or other lotion.

Taken internally, peppermint is a great digestive aid. One or two drops of pure peppermint oil can be put in water as a pre or post meal drink.

4. Frankincense – Good for insect bites, headaches and tension. Has been used with healthy carrier oil for massage for breasts with abnormal growths. This is included in The Paw Paw Program, A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer Can Be Treated Naturally, by Lorene Benoit.

5. Tea Tree Oil     An Antiseptic, Anti-fungal, Tissue Healer with many uses:

Externally:  apply directly or dilute with olive oil – boils burns, cankers, cold sores, cuts, earaches, lice, thrush, ticks, leeches, pimples, bites, fungus.

Internally: Candida, infections, bacterial and viral – advice of health professional & very few drops, IF you are using an authentic grade quality.

Essential oils that do not meet these standard may have a pleasant aroma, but will not offer the active chemicals that effect true healing for which aromatherapy is known.
