Therapeutic grade essential oils are mainly concentrated herbs and people are missing out on their health benefits because of the misconception that they are only for elevating mood or just to be used as perfume oils. Numerous essential oils also have properties that kill germs, purify the air and much more. They can be used as alternative first aid care for everything from acne to urinary infections.
If you would like to add additional essential oils to the basic three we discussed in the previous post, you may wish to include rosemary, peppermint, orange, geranium and lemon. Your Aromatherapy First Aid Kit should also include carrier oils such as sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, and or shea oil to mix your essential oils in, plus aloe vera, vitamin E and garlic oil, which can be created by mixing garlic cloves with sweet almond or grape seed oil.
