E is for Eczema, Emphysema, and the Endocrine System

Several people, including babies, have had to deal with Eczema during some part of their life. If you have an itchy rash, try this recipe:
Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce Jojoba Oil:
7 drops Roman Chamomile
4 drops Lavender
4 drops Sandalwood
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. Add 2 to 4 drops of the above blend to a clean cotton ball. Dab on the itchy rash, as needed.

If you suffer from Emphysema, try the following recipe:
Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce of your chosen Carrier Oil:
5 drops Basil
4 drops Cypress
6 drops Eucalyptus
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. This blend is best applied as a chest and upper back massage, but they can also be used in Aroma Lamps, Diffusers, or Oil Burners, (3 to 5 drops of blend added to hot water).
Use 8 to 10 drops in a warm bath. Try a steam inhalation by placing 5 to 8 drops of the blend to steamy water in a medium bowl. Place a towel over your head, lean down toward the water, and inhale the vapors.

The Endocrine System

The endocrine glands, which together, form the endocrine system, which is responsible for regulating growth, metabolism, and reproduction, by the production of hormones. Essential Oils may either stimulate the endocrine glands to produce hormones, or act as some of the hormones themselves, having a direct regulating effect on the body. Treatment is by massage with the following examples of essential oils:
To stimulate the adrenal glands, make a blend, using Basil, Geranium, Pine, Rosemary, and Sage.
To stimulate the pituitary gland, make a blend, using Jasmine and Peppermint.
To stimulate the reproductive glands, make a blend, using Chamomile, Clary Sage, and Rose.
For an Oestrogenic effect, make a blend, using Angelica, Anise, Fennel, and Sage.

  1. I’ve had eczema since the summer of ’81, when I was a year and a half old. My parents say I suddenly screamed while they were driving to my grandparents in Pennsylvania, and when they looked into the backseat, I was all red and rashy. One of the doctors they saw back before I could remember had them give me a tar bath, with tar soap. At the moment, I’m keeping it at bay with Aveeno products and trying as much as possible to wear 100% cotton till it goes away with warmer weather.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear of your suffering. As long as the Aveeno products help, you might want to stick to that, but if you are feeling you need something more, try the Aromatherapy recipe. πŸ™‚
