11 Essential Oil Uses that You Need to Know
How It Works
Apply a drop of Melissa Essential Oil to the affected area at the first sign of a cold sore
BLIND OR CYSTIC PIMPLE
After you’ve washed your hair, place 1-2 drops of Geranium Rose on your fingertips and massage into your scalp. Repeat this as needed to keep dandruff at bay
THINNING AND DULL HAIR
Place 2-4 drops of Rosemary Highland into the palm of your hand and rub the bristles of your hairbrush in it. Brush your hair from the roots to tips. Repeat daily for best results
MENOPAUSE AND HOT FLASHES
Keep a bottle of Peppermint Hydrosol in your fridge and spritz yourself in times of need
SWOLLEN & ITCHY INSECT BITES
TIRED, PUFFY EYES & DARK CIRCLES
WRINKLED CLOTHES & NO TIME TO IRON
Spritz clothing and/or linens liberally with Rose Bulgarian Hydrosol, shake and smooth the wrinkles out and allow a few moments to hang dry (or blow dry if you’re pressed for time).
CHRONIC STY IN THE EYE
Create a spritzer to use on eye compresses (essential oils should never come in direct contact with the eyes). Combine a small squirt of natural baby shampoo with 2 drops Rosemary Highland and 2 drops Helichrysum essential oils at the bottom of a 30 ml spray bottle. Fill the bottle with either Witch Hazel, Helichrysum Hydrosol or Distilled Water. Shake well.
- First, gently & carefully cleanse the eye area with a natural baby shampoo
- Soak two cotton pads with your Spritzer and gently lay them over closed eyes**. Place a heat pad or heated eye compress overtop
- Be mindful not to get essential oil in the eye.
