Healing with Joyful Purifying Medicinal Soothing Essential oils
Tea Tree and Lavender are my most used essential oils. They travel with me on holiday, I have bottles of both in my kitchen and medicine cabinet. I use them daily to super boost household cleaning, laundry and personal ailments and hygiene.
I cannot recommend them enough, for their anti-viral properties especially when illness is present.
Tea Tree the stronger essential oil must be used with care, only a few drops are required. It is extremely powerful, a brilliant anti-viral which helps subdue the spread of air-borne infections, especially if placed in an atomiser or tea light burner, in your home. Tea Tree also boosts a weak immune system, and benefits recovery of many ailments used in a carrier cream, oil or bath. It can be used neat on skin in tiny amounts, via a cotton bud directly onto cold sores, insect bites, acne, spots and athletes foot, care must be taken to avoid healthy skin.
I also use tea tree in my washing machine, when washing towels, gym gear etc. just pop a few drops in the conditioner section for a truly deep clean.
A few drops added to water and a little detergent, can be used to wipe down most surfaces in the home and I use it to clean the interior of my car.
Lavender a gentler essential oil, which has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Lavender can be used to soothe muscle tension and emotions, used in a massage oil or burner. A few drops in a bath or as a pillow mist will relax and soothe, an invaluable remedy for insomnia. I also wash all bedding with a few drops of Lavender in the washing machine.
Perfect for healing skin, insect bites, bruises, grazes and burns its soothing antiseptic qualities are bountiful.
Kind and gentle, it’s good for all family members healing, calming and soothing.
Orange & Lemon both citrus essential oils, cleansing, uplifting, purifying, refreshing, stimulating and both blend well with lavender and tea tree.
Orange is optimistic and known as the smiley oil, it’s uplifting and anti-depressant qualities make it a perfect choice if feeling low, treats anxiety, depression, stress or insomnia especially if your mind just won’t rest.
Lemon is useful for lymphatic drainage so if your circulation is slow it’s a tonic and will boost circulation remove excess fluid retention and toxins. Lemon also helps rheumatic conditions by counteracting acidity. Use with care as lemon is sun sensitive so may cause irritation.

Positive steps are often very small steps, always in the right direction.
When using essential oils, always use less rather than more. Build your blend gradually one drop at a time. Never use undiluted on healthy skin. Always use a carrier oil cream or use diluted in the bath or in a room atomiser/burner.
Never ingest essential oils, keep clear of eyes and mouth.
Always use half quantities on children, not on babies under 1 year.
Seek advice from a qualified aromatherapist, if in doubt. Most of all enjoy mixing, blending and creating your own home remidies.
