Premenstrual Syndrome Essential Oils

Use the synergistic blends in your bath and as a body oil. To add to your bath – mix the essential oils and then drop 7-9 drops into bath water after bath water has been drawn.

Diaper Rash

Diaper rash is, of course, the most common of baby problems and although thought of as a minor inconvenience it is actually very painful for the baby and worrying for the mother. Essential oils provide an easy solution to the problem. There are actually two combinations that work equally well – make your choice according to which oils you happen to have in the home:

Broken Capillaries

The very finest branches of the blood vessel system that serve the face can sometimes become broken. Usually the problem is concentrated on the cheeks or crease on the sides on the nose although the whole face can be affected.

Making Perfume With Essential Oils

Perfume blends can be fun. Many a celebrity has lent their name to a fragrance, so why shouldn’t you? Be creative and, most of all have fun!

Easing Heartburn With Essential Oils

Add 1 drop of peppermint essential oil to a teaspoon of honey and dissolve in a cup of warm water, sip slowly.

Relieving Sinusitis

Make a towel tent over your head and the bowl, and breathe in the steam for 10 minutes. Take care to not burn yourself with the steam. Repeat twice daily.

Essential Oils To Avoid

There are a number of essential oils that are best to avoid using altogether. These oils can be toxic and have little value for the average person.

Cellulite Relieving Bath Salts

Then take a ‘skinny bath” in these salts that have been found to help relieve cellulite. Follow up the bath with an application of the oils blended in ½ ounce base oil to a particular area(s) where cellulite is a problem. Cypress oil is a good addition to this mixture.

Using Essential Oils at the Hospital

As antibiotic and antiviral air fresheners, essential oils have a positive role to play in any hospital. They can also be used to kill pain, help the patients sleep, and enhance the effect of sedative drugs, thus allowing lower doses to be used.

Keeping Mosquitoes Away

Mosquitoes are the most aggravating little raiders and can be dealt with by a lot of essential oils, but lavender and red thyme are the best. Put one drop on a strip of material, paper, or ribbon and place the strips around the yard or area you would like to keep bite-free.
