Aromatherapy can be a versatile natural health treatment. Though not a replacement for traditional medical treatments or prescription medications, aromatherapy does not cure major illnesses, but it is effective at lessening many of the discomforts associated with them.
To relieve sore muscles, combine 5 drops with 5 drops of peppermint oil and 4 teaspoons of a carrier oil*, then massage into skin.
Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy.
- Essential oils are very potent, never apply them directly to the skin, always dilute them in a carrier oil before applying to the skin.
- Keep essential oils out of the reach of children.
- If pregnant, seek medical advice before using essential oils.
- Some oils may cause irritation / allergic reaction so patch test before using.
Lavender oil truly is the most versatile of all essential oils, it should be a “must have” for every home.
