It seems everyone is complaining of this chronic ailment, or that they suffer from this side effect. This is, of course, from whatever they are taking to help with whatever they have been diagnosed with. Maybe it’s someone you love. Maybe it’s you. Either way, there are alternative ways to help. One of them is essential oils.
Essential oils have been used for centuries and have become more popular in the United States more recently due to the extremely pure, very potent, therapeutic-grade types of essential oils available on the market. Always making sure to use essential oils that are pure and therapeutic grade, there are oils that can help support your body naturally, so it can deal with what the environment is handing out.
If your endocrine system is under attack, some of the best oils to use are spearmint, sage, geranium, rose, basil & lavender. Try a blend in a rollerball with these oils mentioned with coconut oil for a daily bottom-of-feet ritual.
To help with a slow working digestive system, some natural essential oil alternatives are ginger, fennel and peppermint. Just a drop in a glass of water or over the digestive system can and has done wonders to help support the body, so it can function properly.
To help support the body’s urinary functions, juniper berry can be an amazing friend. Try rubbing a little on over your kidneys with some fractionated coconut oil several times a day for help with poor functions in this area.
For respiratory support, lemon, eucalyptus and lavender work amazingly well, and help to keep the airways clear. Put a drop or two of eucalyptus in the bottom of a warm shower – ahhhh.
Essential oils that are known to most support the muscular system are black pepper, juniper berry, helichrysum, marjoram, grapefruit and birch. Try rubbing black pepper essential oil (careful, this one is HOT, don’t touch your eyes or sensitive areas and use an oil to deflate a sensitive situation!) with fractionated coconut oil into tired muscles.
For anti-inflammatory functions, try rosemary and/or lemongrass.
Helping to support and stimulate the circulatory system are coriander, ginger, peppermint, juniper berry and sandalwood.
Most commonly known as the Integumentary system, this is your hair and nails, etc.
Try using frankincense, cedarwood, Hawaiian sandalwood, helichrysum, lavender,rosemary and ylang ylang essential oils to help support the proper functions.
