Essential Oil Guide for Natural Healing Remedies

Essential Oils for Natural Remedies

I have had so much fun researching, experimenting, and putting together this natural healing guide.  Using essential oil recipes helps me in natural healing.   Along with using my regular, daily vitamins, I enjoy pre-mixing various capsules to address certain daily health needs along with healthy eating habits.  The great thing is, that as circumstances change, ie, the flu bug is swarming around or those cold germs are sliming up and down shopping carts handles, I can adjust my daily doses of natural healing remedies!

When I am addressing a specific health need, I take the total amount of each essential oil shown below in the essential oil guide and multiply by 7.  Then I add the total amount of drops into a glass dripper bottle.  That makes it easier to put your capsuled together daily. 

For example, during cold season in my quest for staying healthy I will take 

  • 8x7=56 Drops Oregano
  • 5x7=35 Drops On Guard
  • 3x7=21 Drops Frankincense

        and then add the total 56+35+21=112

        now take the 112/7=16

  • I can make 7 capsules with 16 drops of the essential oil mix in each.
  • I use 00 sized vegetarian gelatin capsules to put my mixture into.
  • I make my capsules right before I'm ready to take them.  It's easy, just add the appropriate drops in each one.

You need to read labels when you're taking your essential oils internally as natural healing remedies.

Please read your bottle labels carefully because most of them say "For External Use Only".

investigate carefully as choosing your natural remedies ingredients from this essential oil guide.

Now, I'm not a doctor and neither is my husband. Or, as a matter of fact, no one in my family is. I'm simply a mom who's done hours of research and experimentation with natural remedies on my family in the quest for staying healthy and healthy habits.

I really do hope that some of these natural remedies work for you as well, but if not, I'm sorry. If you have any hesitation, please visit your family physician with any concerns.
