Headaches like to hit when you least expect it, I get tension around the side of my forehead and find they mostly hit me when I am stressed or have forgotten to drink water. The kids get them when they are tired, usually after a busy week at school. When I can I try to reduce ailments naturally. I added a few drops of lavender oil to my homemade heat pack, this helps release tension from headaches and the fragrance is very calming, sit in a quiet room with this over your head for 10 minutes you will feel the benefits.
Essential oils are becoming very popular, as there are so many various uses for them these days. Three of the most popular of nature’s oils are eucalyptus, tea tree and lavender oil, each being very versatile for managing ailments, as an alternative to pharmaceuticals. Plus, you can also use them as natural cleaning products too, but that’s a whole other post!!
Thursday Plantation’s oils are 100% pure, 100% natural, giving you a wide range of therapeutic capabilities to help maintain your health and wellbeing.
I have used Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oil for many years in our household for applying to minor cuts, controlling headlice to naturally cleaning the house. One of my favourites would be using the eucalyptus or tea tree oil to remove sticky labels off jars or the wall.
Although, just recently we have started using the Lavender oil in the vaporiser too. I have found it helps to calm a jittery body and non-stop thinking mind, in the kids, hubby and I when nervous tension and stress levels are a little high. I add a few drops of Lavender Oil to the water in the vaporiser which helps the kids through restless nights. I also put the vaporiser to good use during flu season, using the tea tree oil to help reduce nasal congestion and eucalyptus oil is known to ease coughs.
More therapeutic uses
I’ve put together my little list of therapeutic uses in the home. However, there are endless uses, the list could go on and on, especially when you add in household benefits as well.
Eucalyptus oil is a very distinctive Aussie smell and very popular because of its effectiveness and range of uses.
- Aches – temporarily relieves mild arthritic and muscular aches and pains.
- Blocked nose – add a few drops to a tissue to help clear a blocked nose.
- Foot odour – add a few drops to a foot bath and soak your feet. This helps reduce sweatiness, fight odour and leave your feet feeling fresh and clean.
