Whether you use aromatherapy as a stand alone or as a complementary first aid treatment there are several aromatic oils I'd like to recommend you have in your aromatic first aid kit.
My recommendations include important details for you to consider when purchasing an oil, such as its Latin Name, Country of Origin, Method of Extraction and Part of the Plant Used. I also list the best oils to consider when creating a synergistic blend.
TEA TREE ( Melaleuca alternifolia - Organic, Steam Distilled Leaf, Australia.
Strongly assertive disinfectant Tea Tree has a fresh and spicy, medicinal and antiseptic smell.
Tea Tree has the undisputed popular reputation as a 'cure all.' It has powerful anti fungal, anti viral, and antibacterial properties.
Keywords: ANTISEPTIC & ANTIFUNGAL - First suggestion for athlete's foot, nail viruses, and fungal infections. Can be used topically undiluted.
Captain James Cook and his mates when arriving in Australia in the 1700's wanted a refreshing herbal tea to drink. They chose the fragrant leaves of a tree. The tree has been called Tea Tree ever since.
Use in anti acne remedies, as well as to combat flu and other viral and bacterial infections.
French physician Paul Belaiche in 1985 studied Tree Tree's healing abilities for Candida albicans, a vaginal yeast infection. In most cases this infection can be treated effectively without the side effects common with conventional treatments.
Research has proven it useful for another vaginal infection, trichomoniasis. In 1962 an American study of 130 women treated using it recovered from this infection.
Helpful for balancing skin conditions like acne, alone or in a blend.
Can be used topically to treat insect, spider and scorpion bites.
Tea Tree is also an immune stimulant, a decongestant and an analgesic or pain reliever.
Try a synergistic blend of Tea Tree with any of the following aromatic oils: Black Pepper, Atlas Cedarwood, Himalayan Cedarwood, Ginger, Lavender, Lemon, Myrrh, Thyme and Rosemary.
