3 Essential Oils that Heal

 

 

There are a number of ways to take advantage of the medicinal properties of these essential oils depending on your ailment:

1.†††† Massage: Mix two to ten drops of essential oil in one ounce of †carrier oil and gently massage the oil into your temples, chest, neck or whatever area you are treating (be cautious of getting any essential oil close to your eyes, nose or other sensitive tissue.)
2.†††† Vaporization: Add your essential oils to a nebulizer and breathe in the particles as they are released into the air.
3.†††† Warm diffuser: Add one to three drops of essential oil to a candle or electric warm diffuser and enjoy the essential oil as the smell quickly fills the room. This is a faster way to diffuse than a cold diffuser, but some essential oil purists feel it robs the essential oil of its full scent profile.
4.†††† Cold diffuser: There are a number of cold diffusers out there, but any stone or tile will do. Drop two to four drops of oil on the cold diffuser and let the smell slowly fill the room. This method slowly releases the essential oil into the air and is best used when you are looking for a subtle effect.
5.†††† †Bathing: Mix three to six drops of essential oil in at least a one teaspoon of golden jojoba (or other carrier oil of your choice), and add into your hot bath. Note: You should only attempt this after you have tested your sensitivity to the essential oil and be sure to pour the oil away from any sensitive parts of the body.
6.†††† Inhalation: Add one to three drops of essential oil to a bowl of hot water. †With a towel draped over your head to capture the stream, breathe in the essence for a number of minutes.
7.†††† Spray: Add ten drops of essential oil(s) to seven ounces of distilled water along with one ounce of vodka, 90% isopropyl alcohol or Witchhazel (to emulsify the oils). Spray on your body, clothes* and throughout the room to naturally deodorize, disinfect and clean the air.

*Do a spot check before spraying on linen and clothes just to make sure the spray does not stain. Iíve never had an issue with this because the mist is so fine, but each fabric is different.

Hi, what a great forum this is and I want to applaud the help that was rendered to my Husband. I send my love and prayers to all who have come here for help. I'd like to request a prayer for Rick Simpson and to Dr. David who have cured my Husband of his lung cancer. He was diagnosed about 3 year ago, beat it once and then a few months later it came back in his brain. We have been doing everything possibly, medication wise, and now the cancer seems to be immune to chemotherapy and radiation. The doctor talks about this being his last year of life, so I feel like he has lost hope but i didn't. after several online search, I found Cannabis oil so i decided to give it a try and i ordered for it, as soon my Husband started his treatment and to God be the glory I didn't lose my lovely husband to lungs cancer anymore. So i'm here to share this testimony to the world at large as my Husband has been saved by the Cannabis Oil, contact Dr David if you have problem relating to cancer and other diseases Email: ricksimpsonmedicalcenter@outlook.com , Tel: +16194786459

How fortunate to be reading this excellent article by someone with the surname "Fortunati"! Thanks for posting, Alisa! My whole family swears by, for example, the healing effects of Tea Tree Oil.
While I take note of this Rick Simpson Cannabis Oil, I recently also read about the healing power of Castor Oil.

Peppermint oil also keeps mice and rats away. Just sprinkle a few drops in a room once or twice a week.

I find this to be a very helpful article on natural essential oils. Been using essential oils for many years now, and they truly are wonderful. Lavender is my very favorite, and I'm sure alot of people feel that way, too. To save money, buying online from a dependable vendor is a way I've done it for a long time, do be careful and don't buy fragrance oils but Essential Oils, there is a huge difference and it is essential oils that give the most healthy benefits. The three essential oils featured in this article do work very well for many issues in a natural way.
