Aromatherapy to the Rescue

Author: Dr. Larita

Every home has a first aid kit but there is an alternative to those over the counter medicines we use. Let’s assemble our own aromatherapy rescue kit. First of all, you need a good container marked Essential Oils, Alternative First Aid, or Aromatherapy to house the kit and keep your oils away from light, dampness and extreme heat so they don’t deteriorate. An empty cookie tin like the one in the picture works great for me. Of course, you can also go all out and have a fancy container made just for the purpose of storing essential oils. You’ll find many suggestions just by googling essential oil containers.

The three major oils to stash in your kit are eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree oil. These three essential oils will aid in aromatherapy treatment for colds, wounds, burns, bruises, insect bites, muscle pain, fungal infections and many other ailments. They can be dispensed in a number of ways depending on the need including directly from the bottle, in a carrier or base oil, in a steam bath, or on a compress. We will continue with more information about your aromatherapy rescue kit as well as a few more essential oils to add to your stash in future posts.
