Best Essential Oil Cheatsheets For Cold

Essential Oil Cheatsheets: Everyone should have Essential Oils in homes. If not, I highly recommend you start making a collection. 

Basically, Essential Oils are liquid which are obtained from the plants they are extracted from. The distillation process of extraction preserves the richness of the oil obtained.

These oils are potent and natural, possessing its distinctive plant characteristics and strong aroma.

Essential oils are named after the plants they are extracted from; e.g- The Oil of Organo.

Essential oils are highly therapeutic and extremely beneficial for an all round well-being. They can be ingested, topically applied with a combination of Carrier Oils (undiluted use of Essential Oils can burn your skin or cause irritations) at the recommended ratio.

They are natural oils, therefore, they can be on the skin with Carrier oils. The use of Essential oils are inexhaustible and highly recommended as an alternative to oral medication. Oral, conventional medication has heightened an accelerated number of deaths while everyone and their mama have sought solace in nature: Herbs, seeds, plants and natural oils.

Note: Take into cognizance, the oils you swallow because one drop of Wintergreen (when swallowed) for example, is fatal.

First Hand Experience

Gosh, it was Thursday just the other day. I had been on my lonesome and so, I thought it’d be a fantastic idea to hang out with the girlies, let my hair down and have a good laugh. I guess the joke was on me.

Lo’ and Behold, guess who wakes up Friday Morning with that cold sore and sniffles, looking demented, sick, coughing and in extremely low in spirits? Yep, you guess right.

Essential oils

Nope, Looks like you :p

Luckily for me, my sister Pharmacist was right to it, nursing me. A look at the tablets got me so discouraged, I immediately remembered my oils.

Look, I have a healthy obsession with Essential Oils. Save for the fact that most of them smell so good and they are natural, my love for these oils go beyond all of those. I find that they provide me with optimum vitality, particularly because –

  1. They have the ability to make a 360 (in the positive) at uplifting moods.
  2. A majority of them are amazingly calming. Enter Lavender.
  3. They are awesome for the skin especially when used properly. That is Frankincense for anti aging, and treating age spots.
  4. Thanks to Rosemary (with Coconut Oil) for my thick hair.
  5. They provide excellent healing solution and properties. You can’t go wrong with the all purpose Tea Tree Oil. 
  6. You might want to increase your libido and improve energy levels with Sandalwood.
  7. Spiritual uplifting and awakening
  8. Enter Rose oil for radiantly glowing skin.
  9. Patchouli, Jasmine, Vetiver to protect myself from air pollution.
Essential Oil

A few I love for DIY and Aromatherapy. I usually purchase from Edens Garden

Frankly, I could tell you tons of its benefits to me but I’ll save that for another day.

No matter how long my obsession has lived, I would only enjoy Essential Oils through aromatherapy. I could never ingest them. You should not too. Anyway, it is proven to be the best form of maximizing it’s benefits.  A whiff could be just enough.

Yeah, I just up in good time, set my diffusers and tabled these Essentials that worked wonders.

The warriors were:

Bulgarian Lavender
Bulgarian Lavender- “ LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL Among the most popular essential oils worldwide, lavender is a timeless, tranquil scent promoting calm, peaceful serenity. Experience the peace of mind, focus, and calming floral aroma of this famous flower with pure Bulgarian Lavender essential oils. Apply directly to promote healthy skin and soothe conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne, or simply enjoy the aromatherapy that comes with this botanical treasure. IDEAL FOR ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSERS Lavender oil is ideal for use with aroma diffusers and humidifiers to fill your home or office workspace with the calming and rejuvenating aromas of this all natural oil. Lavender oil is also a natural insect repellent, allowing you to enjoy nature without harsh smelling bug sprays. 
Peppermint-Concentration is imperative to staying present and focusing on the task at hand but we all get a little foggy sometimes. We lose sleep and our mind wanders. It happens. Thankfully, Peppermint is a brilliant solution to drifting thoughts and sore bodies. Peppermint’s cool and clearing aroma is refreshing with minty layers of sweetness. Diffuse Peppermint near your desk or gently inhale it to eliminate feelings of grief, worry or heaviness. Add to a personal inhaler and inhale as needed: 5 drops of Peppermint, 5 drops of Lime and 5 drops of Lemon. Or add Peppermint to your Thera Lux Nebulizing Diffuser and diffuse for 30-60 minutes.
Lemon- There is a reason lemon fragrances are added to many household cleaning products. Its natural essence actually purifies and its crisp aroma is marvelously fresh. So skip the chemicals and give lemon a try. Not only does it cleanse the air, surfaces and the body, lemon essential oil can uplift sullen moods and inspire positive thinking. Sourced from the romantic lands of Italy, Edens Garden essential oil is the highest quality available. Lemon trees reach about 20 feet in height and grow serrated leaves, thorns and fragrant flowers. The citrus fruit is high in vitamin c, which naturally boosts the immune system and fights off infections. To extract the essential oil, the lemon peel is cold pressed. Try adding it to a natural cleaner or blend with lime or frankincense. 
Eucalyptus- Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil is layered with refreshing properties. It has a minty, vibrant and refreshing aroma that is a common ingredient in cold care products, chest salves and inhalants. It is cooling, invigorating and soothing.
Tea Tree
Tea Tree- Tea tree essential oil is best known as a very powerful immune stimulant. It can help to fight all three categories of infectious organisms (bacteria, fungi, and viruses), and there is evidence that tea tree oil massages prior to an operation may help to fortify the body and reduce post-operative shock. Used in vapor therapy, tea tree oil can help with colds, measles, sinusitis and viral infections. For skin and hair, tea tree has been used to combat acne, oily skin, head lice and dandruff. As essential oils have become more accepted by the public, the use of tea tree has increased significantly. This can be readily evidenced by the commercial products now using tea tree essential oil.
Rosemary- Most of us are stronger than we may realize. We can tackle trouble, leap over hurdles and keep pressing on. DonÌt let muscle aches and pains slow you down. High in camphor, Spanish Rosemary soothes our tired bodies and enables us to keep going. Its slightly floral, herbaceous aroma can sharpen blurry thinking and increase mental stimulation. Adding a few drops of Spanish Rosemary to your most beloved shampoo or conditioner can restore your hairÌs natural luster and shine. For those struggling with hair loss, Rosemary can be amazingly effective at stimulating hair growth. Rosemary dates back to the Ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks who all considered it sacred. Hippocrates added Rosemary to cooked vegetables to help promote a healthy liver and spleen. It was also widely used to cleanse the air and prevent sickness from spreading.
Frankincense- As we grow older, our skin can start to show a little wear and tear. Sun damage or scars can add up leading to a less than ideal derma. Frankincense-carterii acts as a natural application to look and feel fresh. It helps decrease scar tissues and blends fabulously well with rose and lavender. Not only does frankincense-carterii help heal smooth aging skin, it has an earthy and sweet aroma that can calm the lungs and tense emotions. It can bring relief to respiratory spasms. Many aroma therapists recommend frankincense-carterii to help remedy bronchitis, congestion and laryngitis. More than 5,000 years ago, the ancient Egyptians burned frankincense in holy temples during religious ceremonies and later used the gum as a facial mask to rejuvenate the skin. Native to the Mediterranean, frankincense is found in sunny, dry locations. 

—Culled directly from Eden’s Garden

The table does not contain Lemon grass & Rose Essential Oil. They are both excellent choices. You might want to consider warming up a few drops of Frankincense and Peppermint Oil between your palms, rub your neck and the heel of your feet to boost your immune system. 

Guess again, who was up and ready on Saturday for some catching up? YEP, you’re right again.

The healing was the fastest ever. All I had to do was sleep and breathe and have some hot soup. Zero oral medication!

This method is highly effective when you use a diffuser. That’s way, you cleanse your home, your space and loved ones effortlessly while relaxing in a blend of sweet aroma. 

P.S- Rose Oil & Orange Blossom for the skin are also my faves.

Essential Oils could be pricey so be mindful of your supply and don’t inhale toxic oil. It must be 100% natural or nothing.
