Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils: Knocks Out Sinus, Ear and Chest Congestion

Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils: Knocks Out Sinus, Ear and Chest Congestion

Like many people, I catch one of two colds per year and mine always seem to begin in the sinus area.

Even after a regimen of antibiotics, Vitamin C, etc., the end result is that my cold and infection have gone, however, I always have a fluid build up in one ear that isn't necessarily painful, but it diminishes my hearing a bit and is just slightly uncomfortable.

In my quest to learn more about natural remedies for ailments like this one, I tried a couple of recommended essential oils from a company that's been around for awhile. The oils were peppermint and lavender. I used both on the affected ear (not "in" the ear itself) and utilized the ear technique shown in the videos below.

In my video, I demonstrate the Ear Technique using the 2 oils mentioned (Lavender and Peppermint).

In Dr. Mary Starr Carter's video, she demonstrates the Ear Technique on a family member, so be sure to check out that video as well.

Menthol is the primary ingredient in Peppermint Essential Oil and is believed to be effective at reducing congestion in the sinuses and the chest.  It also thins out mucous and assists in expelling it as well.

Lavender Essential Oil is believed to have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. When used along with Peppermint Essential Oil, you have a powerful team!  Lavender reduces the inflammation which allows removal of the mucous.

Ok, here's my video showing how to apply both Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils:

3 Essential Oils to Combat Mosquito Bites

3 Essential Oils to Combat Mosquito Biteslavender (1)

We're getting ready here in my neck of the woods for mosquito season and it promises to be pretty rough.  What brought this to mind was an allergy reaction I had this week.

I broke out in hives and honestly, I have no idea why.  So, while I haven't figured out what caused this breakout, I knew immediately which oils to use to eliminate the itch.

So, here's what I did.

One day I used lavender, the next day melrose and then on the third day I used peppermint.  I have to say that all 3 essential oils eliminated the itching immediately.  The effect lasted for several hours so I applied the oils in the morning and again before bedtime.  The hives are slowly going away – woo hoo!!!

When mosquito season finally rolls around, I'll be prepared with a good supply of the above.

Oh – one more thing – you can "layer" the above oils as well.  Simply apply all three!
