I love to use essential oils for a whole variety of illnesses physical and mental wellbeing, my whole family tends to go to oils before the GP today preferring to try a natural approach first. I am constantly amazed by their benefits.



If you would like to try Essential oils for home remedies, seek professional advice and purchase a high class brand. Always do your research as there are contraindications with some oils.


The oils can be used in a number of ways

  • Topically-applied to the skin, use in a bath
  • Aromatic-use in a diffuser, place on fresh laundry-pillow or handkerchief, rub into palms cup hands and sniff, or smell directly from the bottle
  • Internally-used in cooking, place in drink or a vege capsule to swallow


Always check how each oil should be used for using and dilute is necessary with a carrier oil for children.

I have added a few conditions which may benefit you from using essential oils, where there is a blend I have added the generic name so if you wish to try another brand of oil you will know what to try.

  • Anxiety- lavender, ylang ylang, rose, vetiver, bergamot
