Springtime Cold Relief

  • Geranium − 4 drops
  • Peppermint − 4 drops
  • Rosemary − 4 drops

Blend all ingredients in an amber bottle. This blend can then be used in an Personal inhaler. Or add to a bath − only about 4 drops. or add 8 drops to 1 ounce of carrier oil and rub on chest, neck or any other area you desire.

For Cough and Croup

Use Eucalyptus (several drops) in a pan of water on low heat or put in a vaporizer or diffuser.

This will disperse into the room and help break up mucous and reduce coughing.

Massage for Sinus Congestion

You'll need:

  • Eucalyptus globulus – 3 drops
  • Rosemary – 3 drops
  • Peppermint – 3 drops
  • Carrier oil– 1 teaspoon

Blend essential oils well and add to carrier oil. Massage into your face around your eyes and onto your cheek bones.

Be very careful not to get too near your eyes as this will sting if it gets into the eyes. Massaging your eye brows and forehead will help to relieve the press associated with sinus congestion too.

  • Eucalyptus globulus – 10 drops
  • Peppermint – 10 drops
  • Rosemary– 10 drops

Sinus Congestion due to Allergies

This blend is used by both Al and Penny. We use it especially after we have been outdoors in the spring time when all the trees are blooming, but we also use it after we have been to restaurants where they still allow smoking. We can’t tolerate cigarette smoke – or should I say, our sinuses can’t!

Blend the following in an amber bottle

  • Peppermint – 5 drops
  • Roman Chamomile – 5 drops
  • Rosemary – 5 drops

Then apply several drops inside a Personal Nasal inhaler . Reassemble the inhaler and then place near your nostrils, Inhale a couple of times in each nostril.

This will help to relieve the pressure, open the airways and the chamomile may be helpful to stop other allergy type reactions.

When you have played too hard

You'll need:

  • Rosemary - 10 drops
  • Lavender - 5 drops
  • Roman Chamomile - 5 drops
  • Lemon - 5 drops
  • Peppermint - 5 drops
  • 1 ounce Sweet Sweet almond Oil

Blend all the essential oils in an PET plastic bottles . Then add the Sweet almond oil, Shake well. Massage into all those tired, painful and sore muscles. This is a stronger than normal massage oil. Used specifically for overworked and painful muscles. Massage gently, let the essential oils work for you!
