Recently, Elon Musk shared Tesla’s patents and I liked his reasoning. And decided I would emulate him in my own small way!! If I have something that can be of service to others, why would I not share it and support another human being on this journey.
As a certified aromatherapist, I worked with clients to create personal healing blends, I used essential oils in the work I did as an energy healer and I often recommended that my coaching clients and yoga students enhance their personal journey with aromatherapy blends. I have given people my aromatherapy blend recipes over the years, especially since I closed my retail business. Sharing this here on my blog is a great way to send out healing energy to even more people. Please feel free to share this with friends and also send requests for specific remedies and blends and if I have them, they will be posted here.
Essential oils are powerful remedies for a wide range of maladies and the blends I created worked wonders for many of my clients. It is important to find a reputable brand of therapeutic oils. If you are in the US, I love Liberty Natural out of Oregon. (They also carry bottles, dropper lids, pipettes and other great tools.)
Three single oils I recommend to have on hand:
- Lavender oil (steam distilled) – to soothe burns – several drops directly on the burn immediately (or as soon as possible after the burn)
- Lemon oil (cold pressed) – to clear warts – one drop directly on a wart twice daily
- Eucalyptus oil (steam distilled) – to clear congestion – close one nostril and breathe the eucalyptus in through the other (switch sides)
Three of my most popular blends are below. When you make a blend, I suggest you make a small amount at first. I used to sell 10ml bottles so each of the amounts represented that many mls in each recipe. If you prefer to make less, count the drops you use and just keep the proportions the same. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
For Migraines (Adults only) Do not use if pregnant.
- 3 Lavender
- 3 Clary sage
- 2 Spearmint
- 1 Basil
- 1 Chamomile Roman
One drop on the arch of the foot daily (I used it every evening getting into bed for several years and no longer have regular migraines).
Use daily for several months or even years; this is a preventative measure rather than a cure when a migraine hits.
- 4 Orange
- 1 Ylang Ylang
- 2 Vetiver
- 2 Lavender
- 1 Chamomile Roman
One drop on a tissue tucked under your pillow at bedtime. One of my clients put a few drops in his sleep apnea device (check with your doctor about this). You could also use a plug-in diffuser in your bedroom or have a pre-bedtime bath with a few drops in the bathwater.
- 3 Grapefruit
- 3 Spearmint
- 2 Eucalyptus
- 1 Geranium
- 1 Lavender
I feel nauseated in cars, planes, boats and carry a bottle of this with me that I have shared around planes to great success. I simply hold the bottle under my nose and breathe in the healing molecules. Sometimes, I will put a few drops on a tissue and tuck it under my collar.
I hope you find these blends helpful. Please note that essential oils are powerful and should be used with caution, especially if you are pregnant.
My favorite book for the physical benefits of essential oils is The Fragrant Pharmacy by Valerie Ann Worwood. The photo with this post is a beautiful lavender bush – we are planning to move and my dream is to grow my own lavender. Hopefully I will be able to share my bounty with you in the coming years 🙂
