Quick and Easy Aromatherapy Recipe

Easy Aromatherapy Recipe – Here are some common ailments and suggestions for the use of essential oils in treating them.  It would be a good idea to find an aroma therapist to help you; so that you can blend you own mixture and achieve the greatest benefit from them.
Allergies: Mix one drop of cypress and one drop of hyssop in the palm of your hand and then apply the mixture to the back of your tongue every few hours to relieve hay fever symptoms.
Backache:  Mix equal parts of blue chamomile; birch; rosemary or eucalyptus; ginger or black pepper; lavender; carrier oil. Rub into the affected area after a hot bath, when muscles are relaxed and pores are open.
Nausea or stomachache: Put two drops peppermint oil on a sugar cube and suck the cube slowly.  Or, add a few drops of peppermint oil to hot water and drink as a tea.
Headaches:  Peppermint, inhaled directly from the bottle, or rubbed with a little carrier oil under the nose and at the temples can be very soothing for headaches.
Cuts, scrapes & scratches:  Lavender oil can be applied undiluted to soothe and help heal minor cuts and abrasions.
Anxiety:  Lavender, bergamot, Melissa, geranium, and ylang-ylang are great for calming weary nerves.  You can mix three or four together.  Add to a bath, use in a scent lamp, or massage into the skin with a carrier oil.
Sleep aids:  Marjoram, lavender and ylang-ylang in a warm bath can be soothing before bedtime and aids in sleep.
Colds or flu:  Blend three parts ravensare, one part naiouli or eucalyptus, one part lemon, one part rosewood, and one part lavender.  Add about 50 drops of this mixture to a diffuser, or add 6-8 drops to a bowl of just boiled water, place a towel over your head, bend over the bowl and inhale.
Stress:  Lavender and sage are very relaxing. Place a few drops of each on a tissue and leave on the dashboard so the sun can warm it and diffuse it into the air of the car
Arthritis:  Add 10 drops each of rosemary and chamomile to a warm bath and soak for 10 minutes.
There are many other essential oils, for treating everything from acne to diabetes to depression.  Most oils are not harmful if inhaled, but care should be taken to apply topically on the skin, and never take any essential oil internally without the advice of a skilled professional.
