Ointments for Cuts when Gardening

Hello Everyone,
I am out the door to Sri Lanka to see this beautiful island of spices however I first wanted to share this Ointment for Cuts when Gardening because this is the time of year we are clearing out the summer garden and putting in the garden for winter. Each year I make a patch of salve which you can get the recipe for on page 23 and 24 of my book, Common Scents, A Practical Guide to Aromatherapy or you can purchase a ready made ointment like Golden Salve by Natures Sunshine.
Heres the recipe:
1 T. Homemade Salve or ready made (Golden Salve)
1 T. Aloe Vera Gel
3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
6 drops Frankincense Essential Oil

In a bowl,mix the Salve and Aloe Vera Gel until they are blended well together. Add the essential oils and mix thoroughly. You will have a very cool, refreshing salve to the touch. Wash cuts thoroughly and place Ointment on cuts. Repeat as needed.
Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy.

Here is the video

Don’t forget your Essentials, Use your Common Scents.

Can’t wait to share with you about Sri Lanka.

Au Revoir,

Lorrie

Essential for Sore Muscles

Hello Everyone,
Back to school  is the time for children, teenagers, and professional athletes to start participating in weekly sporting events such as  football, volleyball, cross country and much more . This can mean sore muscles. There is nothing better than a massage with essential oils to relieve the muscle tension, inflammation and soreness. Essential oils are soothing, anti-inflammatory and analgesic. The first blend that I like to use for sore muscles is Recover blend made with Wintergreen, Camphor, Rosemary, Cajeput, Siberian Pine, Clove, Helichrysum, Juniper berries, Peppermint and Frankincense.This blend combines essential oils that help to reduce inflammation and stimulate circulation which helps to ease pain. By adding more Peppermint to the blend it increases its anti-inflammatory properties. I also have added Lemon to the formulation because Lemon contains Limonene known to break up uric acid and stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory systems. This helps the muscles to release the uric acid leaving the muscles soothed and relaxed.

Heres the  Essential Sore Muscle formulation:

6 drops Recover Soothing Blend
8 drops Peppermint essential oil
6 drops Lemon essential oil
2oz. Carrier oil

Place essential oils and carrier oil in 2oz bottle. Roll between your hands and until ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Place on sore muscles twice daily.

For Children 6 years and up: Do not use the Recover soothing blend- Use 3 drops Peppermint and 3 drops Lemon in 2oz carrier oil.
Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy, breastfeeding, children, and people with sensitivity to aspirin (salicylate)- this often applies to ADD/ADHD.

Here’s the link for this week’s video on YouTube for Sore Muscles.

 

 

Until next week, Don’t Forget your Essentials, Use Your Common Scents

Au Revoir,

How to make French Lavender Sachets with Lavender Essential oil: Clean, Fresh, Repelling

Hello Everyone,

After the harvest in June with Joel, I always keep some Lavender to dry  in which I make different things with the dried lavender. One of the things that I like to do with it is make Lavender Sachets. Dried Lavender in France has been used in sachets ( sac originating from Old French) for centuries to scent drawers and closets. It  makes your clothes smell fresh and clean.  The genus of Lavender is Lavandula which comes from the French word Lavere  meaning clean.

It also repels insects such as moths and keeps the woolens from having moth holes. This is truly a daily essential. I don’t like it when I arrive to wear my wool jacket and find their are moth holes in it and I can no longer wear it. The one important thing you have to remember is to freshen up your sachets every 3 or 4 months with Lavender essential oil. This is why I make mine with ribbon ties. Here goes my recipe for Lavender Sachets:

Items that you will need for one sachet:

Ribbon- color of your choice

Fine  Tulle netting that you cut in a circle

Scissors

Glass Bowl

Spoon

2 Tablespoons of dried lavender flowers that you have taken from the stems

20 drops Lavender oil

Enjoy the DIY video:

 

Don’t forget your Essentials, Use your Common Scents.
