Does Your Medicine Cabinet Need a Makeover?

September 28, 2013 2 min read

Open up your medicine cabinet, let me guess, you have some ibuprofen, 18 different types of anti-acids, anti-itch cream, possibly some wart remover, blood pressure medicine, and God only knows what else. Have you ever taken the time to look at all the possible side effects? Nausea, constipation, mood swings, insomnia, drowsiness.. OH MY! You take your medication, then you get a side effect from it and THEN you have to take ANOTHER pill to fix the side effects from the first medication. The cycle continues on and on and on... Well, you get it! Not to mention all the toxins you are willingly putting into your body and what they do to your kidneys and liver. About two months ago I was introduced to essential oils.... and WOW.  Now, I am not claiming they are a cure all nor am I promoting any company. This is just my experience and my knowledge from research and seminars I have attended. So what is an essential oil? Webster's Dictionary defines it as, " a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants." Lavender herb and essential oil A few of the more popular and versatile oils...
  • Lavender- Anxiety, calming, cuts, bruises, ANTI-ITCH, poison ivy, rashes, burns, stress, allergies, ear infection...etc  ONE drop of lavender topically to the bottom of your feet can help put you tosleep or mix with water (10 drops to 1ml) and diffuse throughout your house to keep calm during finals week. As an anti-itch one drop oflavender applied topical to the area..... I bet your anti-itch cream in the cabinet doesn't do all this!
  • Peppermint- Nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, cramps, diarrhea. anti-bacterial, gas, colds, coughs, inflammation of mouth and throat, sinus and respiratory infections, poor concentration, tension headaches, and chronic fatigue.  We all have seen PEPto-bismal, where do you think the PEP comes from? Exactly, PEPpermint. You can apply peppermint directly to your abdominal area to settle your stomach and help with cramps. If you drive a lot and run low on energy rub some on your chest to give you that "pick me up" without staining your teeth!
  • Oregano- has great anti-inflammatory powers. Rub oregano on any sore spots, muscle aches and pains (you may smell like a pizza) but within a few minutes your inflammation will start to subside. Have a pesky wart or skin tag you are trying to get rid of without getting it cut off at the Drs? Take a Q-tip with a little of oregano oil and apply it to the area for 7 days, by the 7th day that thing will practically be GONE!
  • Lemon-Cleaning, dishes, laundry, cough, disinfectant, gallbladder stones, greasy, hair, gout, gum removal, hangover, kidney stones, and stains on clothes. Mixing lemon oil in water makes a great cleaner and not to mention leaves a GREAT smell in the air afterwards. Lemon is also great as a disinfectant, which can also help fight cold and flus.
  This is just a few of the MANY different types of essential oils and their MANY benefits.  Is it time for you to rethink your medicine cabinet?
