Jul 15 2011 I want to share with you some of the great ways to use Tea Tree Essential Oil.  TEA TREE (Melaleuca alternifolia)   This essential oil comes from a species of the Melaleuca tree found in Queensland and New South Wales in Australia. The oil is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves. Aroma: spicy, fresh, medicinal Properties: Powerful antiseptic, anti – fungal, antiviral, antibiotic, detoxifying, stimulant, insecticide. Main components: terpineol, terpinene, cineol, cymene, pinene Uses: Helps the immune system attack bacterial infections, viruses, fungi and yeast.Helpful for colds, flu, and catarrh.

For fungus and athlete’s foot

 FOOTBATH: Place feet, up to ankles, in hot water for 20 minutes before going to bed.  Mix a total of 10 drops of Tea Tree essential oil with 1 teaspoon sea salt and add it to the water. Then file the nail and add 2 drops of undiluted tea tree oil. Repeat this process every day until fungus clears. For athlete’s foot put one drop of undiluted Tea Tree between each toe every day.

For urinary tract infections:

SITZBATH: Mix 2 teaspoons of plain organic * yogurt with 6 drops of  Tea Tree essential oil.  Run a bath with warm (not hot) water to the level of hips, add the yogurt/essential oil mixture and sit for approximately 10 minutes.

Jul 16 2010 Aromatherapy compresses

This is one of my favorite methods of essential oil application for many acute conditions. It is very useful to allow essential oils to penetrate in a particular area of the body.
1)  Mix 6 drops of essential oil(s) and 1 tablespoon salt in an empty bowl
2) Fill bowl with hot or cold water
3) Soak a piece of cloth, wring it out and cover the affected area
4) Repeat this process for 5 to 15 minutes, as needed.

For alternate compresses fill one bowl with very warm water, and the other one with iced water .

Here are some examples:

KIDNEY STONES:

Years ago we were invited to a family party, the moment we arrived my sister started to scream out of pain, she had an awful kidney stone that started to bother right at that moment.  Luckily for her, I carried my essential oils with me.  I asked the host of the party to give me two bowls.

I mixed 3 drops of Grapefruit essential oil and 3 drops of Fennel essential oil with 1 tablespoon of regular salt and added to one bowl.

I created another mixture and added to the other bowl.  One bowl was filled with hot water, the other one with iced water.

Fennel and Grapefruit are said to be litholytic which means they can dissolve stones. [1]

She was crying and initially would not even allow me to touch her.  I applied one compress at a time, first the hot one, then the cold one for about 15 minutes. 

The pain subsided, she literally woke up and went to the bathroom, expelled the stone and went to dance!

After the party I made a massage oil with orange, grapefruit, fennel and other detoxing oils, she applied it on her lower back and lower abdomen every day and never complained about a kidney stone again. I have recommended this method to many more friends and clients, they have always reported great results.

Aromandina’s recommendation: Detoxing Body Oil

MENSTRUAL CRAMPS – DYSMENORRHEA

I’m one of those lucky women who hasn’t had a problem like that, but since I have worked in several spas I knew how my fellow coworkers felt on one of those days when they could not do a treatment out of the pain they were feeling. The essential oil  that have worked very well for me are: You can also use some Frankincense if the pain is excruciating.  I remember that every time I applied these compresses I could feel their organs moving, almost like dancing, like stretching. 
After 10 minutes, the pain was gone!
I then recommended them to use a massage oil with the same oils on a regular basis in order to not only address the symptoms but also to start regulating their bodies and hormonal system.

Aromandina’s recommendation for compresses: RADIARE Essential Oil, for massage oil: Woman’s Help Body Oil

MIGRAINES

When my husband suffered from migraines, I used cephalic and analgesic essential oils, to stimulate circulation. I applied the alternate compress method and again, it only needed 10 minutes for him to feel great again. The following  essential oils are very useful: Aromandina’s recommendation for compresses: Memoria Blend, for daily application: Headache Begone Roll On
NOTE: Headaches and migraines are usually symptoms of many other conditions.  This is just a method to help with the pain, but I highly recommend visiting a holistic practitioner who can help you get to the root of the causes.

FEVERS

I always tell my students and clients that my son, in his 13 years of life has had only  5 infections.  He doesn’t remember if he ever had a fever, and yes, his last fever was when he was 8 years old where he had an ear infection.

For fevers, think about cool oils like Spearmint and Lavender.

Apply cold compresses on the forehead, abdomen and feet.

OTHER USES

Muscle Pain: peppermint, rosemary, lavender, marjoram, birch – cold or hot compresses

Stomach Cramps: ginger, cardamom, fennel, cinnamon [1]

Jul 08 2010 In our excitement for the outdoors, we often become careless in protecting our skin from the harsh rays of the sun. Hats, sunglasses and sunscreens are easily forgotten when there are so many fun activities waiting out there. Little do we realize the vulnerability of our skin and the damage that could result from prolonged exposure to the sun. Last week my son went to the lake and silly me didn’t realize the sun was going to be so strong! He came home with severe sunburn and was so much pain that he couldn’t bear anything touching his body. Luckily for him, his mama always has some aromatic help at hand!

Here’s how I helped my son feel better with essential oils and you can do the same:

  1. I mixed 15 drops of Lavender, 15 drops of Peppermint and 4 drops of Niaouli oils with a teaspoon of salt and added it to a small bottle of distilled water.
  2. I then shook the bottle well and sprayed the concoction very liberally over the affected area. Peppermint, Lavender and Niaouli have anti-inflammatory properties and help to soothe the skin.
  3. Sun-burnt skin is very painful to touch but application of a good oil is necessary to nourish the skin and replenish lost moisture. I mixed 20 drops of Lavender oil with 5 drops of Frankincense oil in 1 oz of Jojoba Oil and drizzled it over the skin, spreading it with very gentle strokes.
  4. Finally, I used a light towel to do compresses. I added 10 drops of Lavender, 4 drops of Peppermint and 4 drops of Frankincense to a teaspoon of salt and mixed it in a bowl of iced water. I then immersed the towel, wrung out excess water and gently placed it on affected skin, especially the back. The cooling effect of the towel helped my son sleep better while the oils worked their magic on his skin. I recommend that you do compresses at least three times a day for best results.
The very next day my son started feeling a lot better and I could apply the jojoba blend more liberally. By the end of the second day, the pain had subsided and only a little bit of itching remained. On the third day, much to my relief, his skin returned to near normal and he was able to go about doing his work. Phew! Aromandina product recommendation: Try Allergy Calm with calming, balsamic and anti-inflammatory oils that will provide a great relief   Related Articles Aromatherapy For The Summer – Webinar Recording Aromatherapy for Outdoor Activities Summer Solutions with Aromatherapy Summer Survival Kit Iced Tea with Ginger Essential Oil   © 2010, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC
