Essential Oils for the Home Medicine Kit

Marcey DiCaro of The Essential Alchemist, offering a series of classes on Creating Your Home Essential Oil Medicine Kit. The class in April will cover conifers, citrus, herbs and spices. DiCaro also specializes in creating custom blends.

Springtime brings beautiful blooming desert flowers and for many, allergies bloom as well. But saline nasal rinses are a big help, as are essential oils. Even if you have an allergy to a plant or tree, you most likely won’t have a reaction with the essential oil, because there is no pollen in the oil.

The Essential Alchemist recommends conifers like balsam fir, eucalyptus and ravensara plus tea tree to help soothe any congestion. Use in a diffuser, a drop on the wall of the shower and a drop on your pillow at night. Combine with lavender for a great night’s sleep and to soothe the mucous membranes.
