Homemade therapy is a series of what you can do at home to create wellness and wellbeing.

Having great health is a gift and essential oils can help to maintain health and wellbeing. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils.  Essential oils are extracted from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds.

Historic research shows that people have used essential oils as medicine.  Without natural plant products in ancient times, there would have been very little medicine.

Essential oils have tremendous benefits and you can create your own blends to enhance health.

Here are a few blends you can make at home. You can mix your own oils (blending two, three or more) to make a closer match to your own physical and emotional needs. Remember one combination may work well for one person but not another.

Essential Oil Combinations

Relaxing
Mix 10 drops lavender and 5 drops eucalyptus oil with 250ml coconut oil. Great remedy for hair and body. You can apply to the hair an hour before or the night before washing your hair and then wash it out with shampoo and conditioner or you can apply to skin as a massage oil and it is very relaxing.

Uplifting
Put 20 drops lemon oil or grape fruit oil with water in a 500ml spray bottle. very uplifting.

Mix 4 drops Lemon and 6 drops Lavender in a diffuser, it creates an uplifting mood.

Clearing

2 to 3 drops of Eucalyptus oil into a bowl of hot water and steam. It acts as a decongestant and can help clear mucus built up in the throat and nose.

One thought on “Homemade Therapy -Aromatherapy

  1. I love essential oils and use them every day! I’m just careful to make so I only get the ones that are quality guaranteed to be pure as the industry is not well regulated and a lot of companies add more chemicals and synthetic fragrances than the real deal. Some of them can be very toxic.
