You can address many minor ailments and health issues without leaving your home if you have a well-stocked medicine cabinet, especially if it includes essential oils. Here are 10 pure health-promoting essential oils from LOTUS AROMA you should always keep handy:
This herbaceous perennial releases a delectable scent, and its essential oil is known to efficiently relieve muscle and joint pain. Add a few drops of Roman Chamomile Essential Oil to unscented massage oil and rub the painful areas for a soothing local analgesic action.
Extracts of this popular fruit are commonly found in food, cosmetics and household products. The toning action of Lemon Essential Oil stimulates the nervous system. It is also an excellent air disinfectant: put some Lemon Essential Oil in a diffuser and enjoy its invigorating and fresh scent.
A toothache is definitely the kind of pain we want to eradicate quickly ... As you wait for the dentist appointment, this essential oil will be your best friend. Simply apply up to 3 drops of Clove Essential Oil on a cotton swab and place it gently on the affected area. Just be careful to not swallow the oil!
Viruses and bacteria that attack the respiratory tract often spread to all members of a family. This is when Eucalyptus Globulus Essential Oil comes into play with its antiviral and antibacterial properties, and expectorant action that relieves bronchial cough. Just add a few drops to a bowl of hot – but non-boiling – water and breathe in the soothing vapours.
Lavender is so much more than pleasantly-smelling plant! For instance, Spike Lavender Essential Oil is an excellent anti-inflammatory when applied to the skin, which makes it an efficient emergency treatment of burns. Apply 2-3 drops on the skin and rub gently.
True Lavender is one of the most commonly used plants in aromatherapy. There is a reason why most of us associate a picture of a lavender flowers field with relaxation and peace. True Lavender Essential Oil effectively reduces stress and anxiety. Simply put 2-3 drops on a clean handkerchief and breathe deeply.
Many people loose their quality of life to migraines. The pain-killing effect of Peppermint Essential Oil helps soothe those debilitating headaches. Apply 2-4 drops on the temples with light circular fingertip massage movements.
Citrus-based essential oils are among the most popular. In addition to its flavourful scent, Orange Essential Oil offers an efficient way to relieve insomnia, both in adults and children. Use it with a diffuser in a bedroom or put 2-3 drops on a clean handkerchief that you place on your nightstand.
Ravintsara is a native plant of Madagascar. One of the many great things Ravintsara Essential Oil does is stimulate the immune system, which can make a positive difference for someone who is tired or recovering from an illness. Simply dilute a few drops in an unscented massage oil and rub the back. Use it in a diffuser to fight viral and bacterial infections, and to hinder the spread of a virus in a room where there is a sick person.
This is a powerful anti-infective agent. In case of cut or scratch, simply soak a cotton swab with 2-3 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil and apply directly on the wound for a few minutes.
In essence, a medicine cabinet that holds these 10 essential oils will help bring quick, effective and natural relief for a host of minor everyday health problems.
