If you are exploring living a more natural lifestyle and looking for home remedies and healthy, natural solutions, perhaps you’ve heard about using essential oils. There are dozens and dozens of essential oils and it can be overwhelming trying to learn all their uses. But I do think that there are several every house should have on hand.
These are three you may want to look into getting to get you started.
Lavender– Soothing, relaxing, great at bedtime when you can’t settle down. Good for headaches (try a drop or 2 on a cool cloth draped over your forehead)
Analgesic, anti-fungal,anti-viral, anti-bacterial. Super for burns. Good to use in carrier oils.
Lavender can also be used in homemade cleaners, body scrubs and pillow mists.
Sometimes the scents of essential oils seem overly powerful in the beginning but soon you’ll find that they are just truly lovely to your senses and synthetic fragrances smell more and more fake. A walk down the detergent aisle at the grocery store will not be enjoyable anymore , but was it ever really.
Tea Tree Oil is known for its powerful anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial effects. It’s great for many skin issues like athlete’s foot, corns, nail fungus and more. It’s great for acne too. Do not take this internally.
Peppermint-Uplifting scent with anti-septic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial effects. Great for coughs, headaches, dandruff, congestion, soothing stomachs and more. Must be diluted with carrier oil. Try a few drops on a tissue, kept on your desk, to sniff as necessary to boost your mood or help clear your nose.
There are many more uses for these three oils, that is just a beginning. You can get great pure and organic Neal’s Yard Remedies at a good price.
