These 6 Essential Oils Are Great Natural Alternatives to Pharmaceutical Medicines

These 6 Essential Oils Are Great Natural Alternatives to Pharmaceutical Medicines 

by Seth M
Expanded Consciousness

The pharmaceutical industry has come under fire recently in light of overwhelming evidence suggesting the production of malicious medications that actually keep people sick, and thus reliant on drugs. “The Truth About Cancer” documentary series is a great place to start if you’re just now learning about the true nature of prescription drugs.

As one could imagine, people have become completely turned off to the idea of pharmaceuticals, and are seeking out new, natural and alternative treatment options. Including essential oils. Derived from various plants, flowers, herbs, fruits and other naturally-occurring substances, essential oils are used for a variety of different reasons, including improving one’s overall health and well-being.

There are over 90 different essential oils available today; here are six that are used for everyday purposes:

Lavender

A natural favorite for many people, Lavender can be applied to almost any part of the body and tastes great when mixed into lemon water. Health benefits of this essential oil include reduced anxiety, faster healing of wounds, improved sleep, healthy skin complexion, anti-aging properties, relief from joint pain, and it fights symptoms of diabetes.

Lemon

Lemon, as you may or may not know, is chock-full of healthy properties. It can be used in cleaning solutions, soaps, and toothpastes, or as a breath freshener. Lemon oil provides health benefits like improved oral hygiene, improved digestive functioning, sore throat relief, stomach pain and nausea relief, and even acts as an aid in weight loss.

Peppermint

Considered one of the more versatile essential oils, peppermint can be used for a lot of things. Not only is it perfect for muscle pain and migraines, but it also helps treat sinus infections, itching of the skin, sunburns, fevers, ADHD, and can improve hair health. It’s also been seen to be effective in treating cancer, to some extent.

Frankincense

This essential oil is often referred to as the “king of oils,” and with good reason. It is great for people seeking to reduce stress levels, reach deeper levels of meditation, improve the health of their skin, or reduce the visibility of stretch marks and scars. It also provides a healthy boost to the immune system, helping to prevent how often you get sick.

Sandalwood

This essential oil is perfect for anyone wanting to add a bit of clarity to their life. It naturally promotes improved memory function, clarity of the mind, relaxation, and calmness. And, as an added bonus, it’s a natural aphrodisiac, so you can use it to spice things up in the bedroom!

Tea Tree

Tea tree oil is a great solution for dealing with problems relating to the skin and the respiratory system. Not only is great for treating ingrown hairs, but it also helps treat acne, chickenpox, cold sores, respiratory infections, earaches, fungal infections, head lice, psoriasis, and halitosis.

Make Your Own Wild Adventure Shower Spray

Make Your Own Wild Adventure Shower Spray

CampingSpray01

While I have stayed in full-service campgrounds, I prefer to camp as far away from civilization as possible. You know, hiking in and hiding out! This means no showers (although dips in lakes, creeks, and streams are awesome), so I always bring a lovely-scented spritz on my adventures.

This spray was created to complement the wild experience, not compete with it. If you’re looking for fruity florals, you can formulate one easily with different essential oils. If you are hoping to keep some of the bugs at bay and still smell on the fresh side, this is your mix!

Spray prior to getting dressed in the morning or after a mountain swim. This shower spray goes quite well with other wonderful camping scents too, like campfire smoke and conifers in the breeze…

Camping Spray with Herbs

Wild Adventures Camp Shower Spray

Ingredients

2 oz organic catnip hydrosol

2 oz organic witch hazel extract

10 drops organic eucalyptus lemon essential oil

10 drops organic lavender essential oil

6 drops organic lemongrass essential oil

4 drops organic Cedarwood Atlas essential oil or Cedarwood Virginia essential oil

Makes 4 ounces

Directions

Combine the catnip hydrosol and witch hazel extract in a 4 ounce spray bottle. To this, add the essential oils. Shake well to combine and test to see if you’d like a stronger scented spray. I like our 4 ounce plastic bottles with a flip cap, and then I add one of the large fingertip misters for camping.

Shake prior to using and keep out of direct sunlight. This does not need to be stored in the refrigerator between camping excursions, but it might last longer if it is!

Home-Made Bath Salts are easy to make. They are a great way to combine therapeutic benefits with the relaxing, soothing effects of essential oils. Add vitamin E, and the benefits soar.

Vitamin E acts as an anti-inflammatory and as an antioxidant. It is very good for the skin. Some common skin problems which can be resolved with the help of vitamin E oil are as follows: Aging Skin, Dry Skin, Scars, Stretch Marks, and/or Sunburn.

Making these bath salts for yourself or for gifts. Following are some bath salt recipes you might like to try:

Red Alaea SaltIf you make your own bath salts, or are making bath salts as gifts, Red Alaea Salt is the perfect sea salt to use. It’s gorgeous deep red color adds a seasonal feel and the minerals are wonderful for the skin.

It has a gorgeous deep red color because this salt is created through natural evaporation when it is trapped in tidal pools and mixes with red volcanic clay from Hawaii. The red color itself comes from the extremely high amount of iron in the clay. The salt is said to contain 80 different naturally occurring minerals.
