So for awhile now I have been on an Essential Oil kick! I HATE medicine! I don't like taking it for aches & pains.
So I've gone with more Natural products! I've even turned some friends on to them! About a year ago I made my husband his own chap stick using bee's wax, essential oil & coconut oil! It's time to make some again so look for that blog post soon!
Well with my essential oils I started using my peppermint oil for my headaches! I get Migraines & quite often sometimes & if you have ever had one well you know they are awful! So I use a drop of peppermint oil on each temple my jaw line & back of my neck. Some days it goes right away other day's I need to add a drop to the bottom of each foot & I sometimes add a drop of Lavender Oil! It's been working amazing!
I use the peppermint oil on my oldest when he has a headache & I even rub it on my abdomen during that time of the month to help with cramps!
My husband had a bad stomach ache one day so I dipped a tooth pick in the peppermint oil swirled it in a glass of water he drank it & felt better 10 minutes later!
Well knowing the oils help with that I started looking into using them for other uses. I now clean with my essential oils! I use a vinegar(natural disinfectant)/water mixture & add Tea Tree oil (it has antibacterial properties) I also add lemon grass oil it also has antibacterial properties & it smells so good.
I use baking soda in my toilet bowls spray with vinegar let it foam up add a drop or 2 of Essential Oil & scrub it leaves my toilet clean & smelling good!!
Safer for my kids & my wallet :)
*Tea Tree oil can help acne I use a Qtip dab it on trouble spots it really helps!
*Tea Tree oil can be used as lice prevention put a few drops in your kids shampoo
*Tea Tree Oil helps keep fleas away put drops on your pets bed or in their crate
