A to Z April Blogging Challenge

F is For Fatigue, Fever, and First-Aid

For Fatigue, try this recipe blend:
Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce of your chosen Carrier Oil:
8 drops Bergamot
7 drops Lavender
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. This blend is best applied as a body massage, but the blend can also be added to a warm bath, 8 to 10 drops, per bath.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil, (Eucalyptus globulus), comes from the tall Eucalyptus tree. The essential oils are steam distilled from the leaves. It is colorless, with a penetrating camphoraceous aroma. It acts as an analgesic, making it useful for reducing fevers.
Following are two recipes to try:
Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce of your chosen Carrier Oil:
4 drops Benzoin
7 drops Eucalyptus
4 drops Pine
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. This blend is best applied as a body massage, but the blend can also be added to a warm bath, 8 to 10 drops, per bath.

Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce of your chosen Carrier Oil:
8 drops Eucalyptus
4 drops Lavender
3 drops Peppermint
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. This blend is best applied as a body massage, but the blend can also be added to a warm bath, 8 to 10 drops, per bath.

First-Aid

Bites and Stings: Place 3 to 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil on a clean cotton ball and apply it directly onto the bite or sting. This will ease the discomfort and aid in the healing process.

Minor Cuts and Grazes:
Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce of your chosen Carrier Oil:
4 drops Lemon
7 drops Tea Tree
4 drops Thyme
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. Use 5 to 8 drops of this blend to a medium bowl of steaming water. Using a handkerchief or wash clothe, dip it in the bowl, squeeze out the remaining water, and apply as a hot compress to the cuts or grazes. Apply as often as needed.

Heat Rash:
Add the following Essential Oils to 1/4 ounce of your chosen Carrier Oil:
8 drops Roman Chamomile
7 drops Lavender
Swirl gently until all oils are blended thoroughly. Add 5 to 8 drops of this blend to a medium bowl of cool water. Using a handkerchief or wash clothe, dip it in the bowl, squeeze out the remaining water, and apply as a cold compress to the heat rash. Apply as often as needed.

There are many more First-Aid Essential Oil Recipes. I will try to work them in on down the line of letters.

  1. I had no clue we could use essential oils for so many home remedies. I steer clear of them cos it isn’t easy to know what exactly to use, and in what proportion.

  2. Oh man, I am definitely writing down that one for bug bites and the like. I don’t know what it is, but I’m regularly the only one in a large group of people who gets eaten alive when hanging out outdoors. lol

      1. Indeed. I’m familiar with basic aromatherapy and essential oils – and have a few that I always keep on hand – but I often forget which I should add to the store – but now that I have your sound advice – and have pinned it to my Pintrest board – I’ll definitely make some notes and have a list on hand when next I venture out for shopping purposes.

        Thanks again for the wonderful posts πŸ™‚
