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 health recipes, and because they actually work and improve ones 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: 6 drops of lavender essential oil, 1 ounce of jojoba (if you cannot find it, you can also use fractionated coconut oil), 1 drop of geranium essential oil and 5 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 like 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, 10 drops of peppermint essential oil (you can also use spearmint essential oil) and 5 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 really shake the bottle with the ingredients, before every use. And there it is, your own mouthwash, that will keep your teeth and mouth clean, adding a nice 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 8 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 a dark colored glass bottle. You can apply it daily on the bruise. Try not to apply 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 won’t to spend money with a doctor.
