I use Cinnamon Bark from Spark Naturals. I’m sure you could use either one, that is just the one I use. Also, make sure to get a good quality oil since diffusing the oil gets the particles and benefits into the air in your home and air you breathe. I also love to change up what I diffuse throughout the day! You can either use more than one diffuser so that you can let it run until the water/oil is gone, or just try not filling it all the way and using less oil so it can run for a shorter amount of time. That way, you’re not dumping out anything to change what oils you use. I usually let my diffusers run until what I have in the “tank” is gone and then I change what blend I’m using 🙂
The essential oils are the aromatic, natural chemical compounds extracted from various parts of a plant: leaves, flowers, stems, roots, bark, etc. They are in such a potent form that a single drop of essential oil can equal multiple teaspoons of the dried herb (for instance, 1 drop of peppermint oil equals more than 25 cups of peppermint tea and oils can be up to 70x more potent than their dried herbal form). This means less is more.
Purchase an essential oil still. Although you’ll likely be hard-pressed to find one in a store (unless you have a specialty store nearby), these stills are easy to buy online. However, beware that they can be expensive — usually around a couple hundred dollars. If you plan on making large quantities of essential oil, a professional still is a good investment.
Health benefits: Patients regularly use this essential oil because it reduces spasms, maintains the fluidity of blood, fights allergies, inhibits microbial infections, dissolves and clears blood clots, reduces inflammation from fever, and is good for nervous system health. Furthermore, it reduces various other types of inflammation, clears phlegm and reduces coughs, heals scars, protects wounds from becoming septic, stimulates proper bile discharge into the stomach, makes skin smooth and young, dissolves mucus, and kills fungus. It is also notoriously good for liver and spleen, while stimulating urination and regeneration of new cells.
Natural insecticide, bug repellent, and bite reliever. Tea tree oil has long been used as a natural bug repellent by native Australian aboriginal people. Chinese research in 2016 found tea tree to be effective against the cereal weevil, Sitophilus zeamais.12 The cereal weevil is considered to be an extremely destructive pest to stored cereals all over the world. Tea tree also helps to relieve the pain, itching, and inflammation of insect bites.
Health benefits: Traditionally, it has been used for pain relief, relaxation of the body and mind, treatment of rheumatism and arthritis, as well as for reduction in spasms. Furthermore, it protects against sepsis, spreads a pleasant fragrance, tightens gums and muscles and helps stop hair loss. Finally, it reduces the risk of hemorrhage, removes gas, increases urination and subsequent removal of toxins, and regulates a normal and healthy menstrual cycle.
I’m grateful for the knowledge. I had breast cancer (tumor) removed in Jan 2015 and some lip notes removed and I used to feel a little sore under the arm but not any more the tumeric frankinsence and myrth oil is what I use mixed with a little virgin olive oil, I rub it on my breast and under my arms and take tumeric capsuls from epic lab as well, I also blend the tumeric ROOT with some almond milk and drink almost every night, soreness is gone and so is pains in my breast. Tumeric is my chemo. Thank you Epic Labs and thank you Ty Bollinger.
Hi Phyllis, thank you for your interest in our Organixx Essential Oils. Currently, we do not carry Ginger Essential Oil as a single oil, but it is a key ingredient in three of our Essential Oil Blends (Digest blend, Shield blend, and Relief blend). If we have plans to do so in the future, it will be announced and added to our website. You can also be notified via email by signing up for our newsletter here: http://oxprod.organixx.com/free-health-newsletter/.
Hi Kathy, my name is Christian, and I’m a veterinary technician. My dog has also been going through this, and he has literally tried everything on the market. Apoquel, Zyrtec, topical ointments, shampoos, you name it. The only thing that has ever given him relief was CytoPoint. It is an injection that lasts anywhere from 1 to 4 months, depending on the dog and their allergy. It is pretty pricey, but so worth not seeing your fur baby scratching their heart out. Like Teri said, essential oils can be extremely damaging to your pup’s skin, especially if it’s raw and inflamed from the scratching. But I hope this helps! Take care, and God bless!
I think there might be a bit of confusion here. The recipe is for an oil infusion, which is a wonderful ingredient with many different applications. However, it is not exactly an essential oil and certainly not as potent. Making a true essential oil involves the use of a still, and as I said above this can be quite a costly investment. Instead, I offer the alternative of an oil infusion.
Young children and the elderly may be more sensitive to essential oils. So you may need to dilute them more. And you should totally avoid some oils, like birch and wintergreen. In even small amounts, those may cause serious problems in kids 6 or younger because they contain a chemical called methyl salicylate. Don’t use essential oils on a baby unless your pediatrician says it’s OK.
