I am constantly running into things at home and getting bruises. I decided I better find a way to get rid of these purple bruised spots on me or pretty soon people will think I’m a four eyed giant purple people eater! There is one bruise on my arm that hasn’t gone away because it comes from my heavy purse falling on my watch making it dig into my arm. I’m going to work on that one first.

To treat your bruises, first get two bowls of water, one with hot water and one with cold water and add the following to both bowls:

  • 2 drops lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 1 drop geranium essential oil

Next, soak a washcloth in each bowl and alternately apply them to the bruised and surrounding area. Finally, rub in a small amount of the following oil:

  • 2 drops geranium essential oil
  • 2 drops rosemary essential oil
  • 1 drop lavender essential oil
    Diluted in 1 teaspoon of sweet almond or liquid shea oil.

 

 


Dry Skin Relief

Are you confused about whether to use an ointment, a lotion or a cream to relieve your dry skin? These terms describe the way skin care products are prepared. Ointments are prepared using oil and may stay on your skin longer but many people don’t like them because they are  greasy and don’t soak into the skin. Creams are less oily than ointments and can be made from natural products so they do soak into the skin easily. Lotions are water-based and get absorbed into the skin quickly, causing instant, but not long-lasting, relief. For longer-lasting relief, choose ointments or creams.

If you have dry or itchy skin, avoid using too much soap, antiperspirants,  hot baths or anything else that removes your natural oils. Skin dryness and itchiness is worse when the humidity is low and you should definitely avoid stress, too much exposure to the sun, and smoking or secondhand smoke.


Childhood Diarrhea

Children can get diarrhea for many reasons, such as physical problems like bacteria, viruses, flu and ear infections. Maybe the child has an allergic reaction to a medication or even a food. Stress from nervous tension can also cause diarrhea in children, maybe from a bully at school or from hearing parental arguments that he or she doesn’t understand.

Whatever the cause of the diarrhea, it is very important that you do not let the child become dehydrated. Replace the lost fluids with lots of liquids and if the diarrhea continues for more than 24 hours, consult your physician. Give your child diluted soups and drinks with honey in them. Do not force them to eat solid food and don’t give them any dairy products because that will only make things worse.

Use any of the oils below  in a massage oil like sweet almond oil to rub gently on the abdomen:

  • chamomile
  • geranium
  • sandalwood
  • ginger

You can also use this massage oil formula:

  • 5 drops of ginger
  • 8 drops of sandalwood
  • 8 drops chamomile

Dilute these oils in 2 tablespoons of liquid shea oil.


boil is a localized accumulation of pus in the skin, usually resulting from infection of the hair follicle. Boils can also come from another skin condition that causes the skin to itch. When the person scratches, the skin can get infected and cause a boil.

To treat a boil, bathe the area with 2 drops of lavender and 2 drops of tea tree diluted in a small bowl of hot water. If the boil is really severe, add 1 drop of chamomile to the water. Treat the area twice a day. Other essential oils you can for boils are thyme, lemon, nutmeg and oregano.


Last week I talked about treating blisters caused by friction from shoes or rubbing. You can pierce that kind of blister during treatment. However, if your blister is from a burn, you should definitely NOT pierce the skin. For blisters from a burn or scald, put 1 drop neat of lavender essential oil on the blister and then hold an ice cube on the blister for at least 10 minutes.

To treat a burn immediately after the accident, run ice cold water on the area for 10 minutes. Then put 2 drops of lavender essential oil neat directly on the burn. Add 5 drops of lavender on a dry, cold compress and cover the area. You can repeat this as often as needed. Other essential oils you can use instead of lavender are chamomile, eucalyptus, yarrow or niaouli.


blistersHave you ever gotten a blister on your foot from your shoes rubbing either your toe or your heel? I hate that feeling. Just think about professional dancers, spinning and twisting around on the floor with bare feet! I’m sure they get blisters quite often.

The best thing to do for that type of blister is to cover it with a gauze bandage that has a few drops of lavender or chamomile essential oil on it. If you have a very large blister, it’s best to sterilize a needle and puncture the blister first. Then apply lavender neat and put a gauze bandage on it after that. For those large blisters, you can make a synergistic blend of equal parts lavender and myrrh.

Don’t put the kind of band aid on your blister that won’t let your skin breath. Put a gauze bandage on and hold it on with plaster strips so that the skin can breath as much as possible. Leave off shoes and socks as much as possible or at least wear shoes that do not touch the blister until it has  healed completely. People more likely to get blisters – joggers, hikers, athletes and ballet dancers for example, can use tincture of benzoin painted on their toes, heels or other susceptible parts of the foot. This will prevent and help heal blisters.

Treat Black Eyes

Author: Dr. Larita

If you get a black eye, no matter what the reason, you have to live with it until it fades away which is usually about a week to 10 days. The eye itself is not really affected, but the fatty tissue and lack of muscle around the eye socket is a good spot for blood to accumulate after a blow to the eye area. When the blood is reabsorbed, different colors are released causing the extreme appearance of a black eye.

Aromatherapy essential oils can soothe and treat your black eye. All you need to do is add 1 drop of geranium and 1 drop of chamomile essential oils in 2 teaspoons of witch hazel and mix well. Then add this mixture to 1 tablespoon of ice cold water, shake well and soak a cotton ball or cotton facial pad in it. Close your eye and apply the cotton pad to the eyelid and surrounding area. Do this once a day during the length of your black eye or until it looks and feels better.


My husband was taking a water aerobics class at a local gym. Although he wore flip flops in the locker room, he somehow contracted athlete’s foot. We treated it quickly with essential oils and it went away. It may take longer if you’ve had this condition for a while or have a very bad case.

Mix together 2 drops of tea tree and 1 drop of lavender. Dip a cotton ball into this blend and smear it between the toes and around the nails. You should also make up the following massage oil and rub it on your feet, especially on and around the toes.

Dilute this blend in 1 teaspoon of carrier oil for your foot massage.
