Treat Headaches with Peppermint Oil

Alleviating itching with Bergamot Oil

I

L

et’s get rid of those itches right now in a safe, aromatic way.

First, we always recommend diluting bergamot. It’s concentrated and strong and if used strait can irritate the skin.

• Apply 1 or 2 drops of diluted bergamot oil directly to cuts and scratches, and the skin around them, to get the antiseptic and antibacterial effects. • Add 3­5 drops of bergamot oil to your bath

water to treat skin infections and vaginal itch.

6.

We all get a touch of the blues now and then, and Bergamot promotes eased stress. A sniff directly from the bottle can leave us feeling immediately refreshed and energized with the coolness of citrus. Plus, that will make your Bergamot last longer (: DIY Bergamot Wanna grow Bergamot yourself? We know that citrus Bergamot grows in southern Italy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t grow it ourselves. Bergamot isn’t fussy about where it grows, just make sure it has partial shade. To get better results, avoid starting with seed and go for root cuttings rather. It’s such an attractive little plant – we’ve even dried the flowers and added them into potpourri.

Using Peppermint Oil to Demolish Headache: Topical

• Apply and massage 1­5 drops on temples, forehead, neck and wrists. Inhale the Relief

• Add 10­15 drops to a diffuser, oil burner or metal bowl of boiling water. The steamed peppermint oil will fill the air. Just sit near it, breathe and relax. *Peppermint oil is safe for most adults when used in moderation. As with any essential oil, it’s good

to use caution as some people can be sensitive to its properties. Check with a doctor before using peppermint oil if you are pregnant or nursing, taking antacids, under 7 years old, or diagnosed with diabetes, GERD, hiatal hernias or gallbladder disorders.

DIY Peppermint Essential Oil Peppermint oil is easily extracted from peppermint leaves, and peppermint leaves can be bought at most stores that have produce section that stocks herbs. Wash the peppermint leaves, then crush or chop them to release the oils. Place them in the jar and put a carrier oil like olive or warm coconut oil. Use just enough oil to cover the leaves completely. Seal the jar tightly for 24 hours. Strain the oil and add more chopped peppermint leaves and carrier oil, then reseal. Repeat five times. Remove the peppermint leaves by straining until all plant matter is out of the oil. Put in a glass bottle and seal and store in a cool place.

leepless nights are the worst. Tossing and turning and restlessness when you just want to catch some winks is about as frustrating as locking yourself out of your own house.

Pour oil over the flowers, leaving a couple of inches at the top of the bottle for expansion. Leave the mixture to soak in a sunny location for at least 3 weeks.

Being active outdoors with Peppermint Oil

Feeling selfless with Bergamot Oil

If you are seeking an essential oil to boost your selflessness, bergamot oil just might be the thing for you. Bergamot is known to be a great oil for promoting spiritual and emotional connectivity. It is used by many for enhancing feelings of empathy. Bergamot is a universally lauded citrus oil. It is an essential oil that is used in the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda. It has a complex aromatic quality that is sweet, fresh, floral and spicy. Bergamot oil, named for the city in which it was first known to be sold, has been used since the 1700s in Italian folk medicinal to treat fevers and urinary infections. It is a highly praised aromatic treatment. It is also a spiritual protectant used to ward off evil and psychic dangers in voodoo practices.

Using Bergamot Oil To Feel Selfless: Topical

• Mix 5-10 drops in coconut, almond or jojoba oil. Apply like any lotion. Anoint chest, temples, forehead, neck and wrists with 1-5 drops of pure bergamot oil.

40 .

Fill The Air

• Add 10-15 drops to a diffuser, oil burner

or metal bowl of boiling water. The steamed bergamot oil will fill the air. Put near your workout site and breathe.

DIY Bergamot Essential Oil Bergamot oil is easily extracted from bergamot peels using a method called “cold-pressing”. All you need is some bergamot peels, a sieve, and a jar, cup or bowl. First, make sure to wash your hands and the bergamot. Peel the bergamot, taking care to not cut into the meat. Put the sieve on top of the jar. Squeeze, then press the peels into the sieve. The oils will drip down into the jar. If you don’t have a sieve, you can use a garlic press. The garlic press is effective at recovering lots of oils from the peel, but requires the peels to be processed in smaller batches.

In case you haven’t heard, peppermint oil is a great substance to add to your life to enhance the feeling of better performance of your bodily functions during physical activities. When used during outdoor activities, peppermint oil may help enhance clarity and endurance. It may also help keeping down inflammation and acid buildup, promote healthy breathing and circulation, and reduce pain. Many use it to boost focus and energy levels.

"Peppermint oil may help enhance clarity and endurance"”

Being active outdoors with Peppermint Oil

Feeling selfless with Bergamot Oil

If you are seeking an essential oil to boost your selflessness, bergamot oil just might be the thing for you. Bergamot is known to be a great oil for promoting spiritual and emotional connectivity. It is used by many for enhancing feelings of empathy. Bergamot is a universally lauded citrus oil. It is an essential oil that is used in the ancient healing practice of Ayurveda. It has a complex aromatic quality that is sweet, fresh, floral and spicy. Bergamot oil, named for the city in which it was first known to be sold, has been used since the 1700s in Italian folk medicinal to treat fevers and urinary infections. It is a highly praised aromatic treatment. It is also a spiritual protectant used to ward off evil and psychic dangers in voodoo practices.

Using Bergamot Oil To Feel Selfless: Topical

Fill The Air

• Add 10-15 drops to a diffuser, oil burner

or metal bowl of boiling water. The steamed bergamot oil will fill the air. Put near your workout site and breathe.

DIY Bergamot Essential Oil Bergamot oil is easily extracted from bergamot peels using a method called “cold-pressing”. All you need is some bergamot peels, a sieve, and a jar, cup or bowl. First, make sure to wash your hands and the bergamot. Peel the bergamot, taking care to not cut into the meat. Put the sieve on top of the jar. Squeeze, then press the peels into the sieve. The oils will drip down into the jar. If you don’t have a sieve, you can use a garlic press. The garlic press is effective at recovering lots of oils from the peel, but requires the peels to be processed in smaller batches.

Boosting sex drive with Patchouli Oil

Do you remember the hippie movement of the ‘60s when the earthy, woody, sensual aroma would be a magnetic attraction, increasing libido? The potent sensual aroma of patchouli takes one back to this time.

"Patchouli oil is one of the most soothing and relaxing oils, and beyond this oil’s unique aroma is a wealth of health benefits." 44 .

Patchouli oil is one of the most soothing and relaxing oils, and beyond this oil’s unique aroma is a wealth of health benefits. The oil is known as an aphrodisiac that can boost low sex drive and can treat sexual problems such as loss of libido and sexual anxiety, and can help a great deal to put the spark back into your love life. It’s been used as an aphrodisiac for hundreds of years. Here is how you can use this oil to stimulate the sex hormones.

How To Use Patchouli oil to boost your sex drive: • Place a cotton bud dipped in Patchouli near your bedside and witness the magic! (Yes, a

single drop is usually enough!).

• Inhale it, diffuse it in a vaporizer or apply it

directly to your skin. It will help in stimulation of estrogen and testosterone, the sexual hormones.

• For an amorous atmosphere add a few

drops into water and into an oil diffuser to sharpen the mind and bring about a relaxing and calming mood.

Patchouli DIY Fill a jar with dried patchouli leaves, leaving 1 inch from the top available for a carrier oil to cover the dried patchouli. Screw on lid. Boil a saucepan of water and put the jar in the water till the water cools. Remove the jar from water and shake well. Store in a cool, dry, dark place for 30 days, shaking each day. Use cheesecloth to strain the liquid, leaving you with your own patchouli oil.
