Even if aromatherapy has been used since the discovery of the properties of the plants, only in the last few decades, it has been seen as an alternative for the medicine existing until now. After the official recognition of its effects, the world exploded with aromatherapy healthy recipes, and because they work and improve one’s life, here are some of the problems that we, as human beings, have and the correct aromatherapy recipe to use against them.
Unless you are one of the luckiest people on earth who have never had acne, you might benefit a lot from the next recipe made from essential oils. For the recipe, you will need six drops of lavender essential oil, 1 ounce of jojoba (if you cannot find it, you can also use fractionated coconut oil), one drop of geranium essential oil and five drops of manuka essential oil. You need to find a clean bottle and then put the carrier oil first. If you don’t know, a carrier oil is the one used to dilute essential oils, in this case, the jojoba or fractionated coconut oil. Then pour the other ingredients and roll gently, so that they form a homogeneous liquid. You can apply a small amount of the mixture on the areas affected by acne, trying to keep it away from the eyes, nostrils, and ears. Also, every time you need to use it, roll it gently so that the ingredients don’t separate and will have the same healing power as when you just made the recipe.
Another recipe from the universal aromatherapy health recipes is for those who want homemade mouthwash. The ingredients for this recipe are 6 ounces of water, 1-2 ounces of Vodka, ten drops of peppermint essential oil (you can also use spearmint essential oil), and five drops of myrrh. Mix the water with the vodka, then add the essential oils. As opposed to the recipe for acne, this time, you have to shake the bottle with the ingredients, before every use. And there it is, your mouthwash, that will keep your teeth and mouth clean, adding a pleasant smell and taste.
If you have bruises on your skin and you are not able to dispose of them in any way, the next recipe will help you with that. The mixture is anti-inflammatory and will help you not only hiding the scars and bruises but also to ease the discomfort. For this aromatherapy recipe, you will need eight drops of helichrysum essential oil and 1 ounce of jojoba or sweet almond oil. If you have problems in finding the helichrysum, you can use instead roman or german chamomile or yarrow essential oils. After mixing the two ingredients, be sure to keep them in the dark-colored glass bottle. You can apply it daily on the bruise. Try not to use more than two times a day, and not in excess.
Even if these are only three useful aromatherapy recipes, you might wonder why try to make them and not just buy a pharmaceutical product. Well, they are practical, easy to make and they also help you save money. The best part is that they improve your health and your life, using only natural healing powers and ingredients. Also, you want to spend money with a doctor.
