Pain Cream

This combo is what got me started on essential oils when I hurt my back. I added the oils to lotion, and realized I had a winner for me!! I use my coconut cloud cream as my base, but really, any unscented lotion will work in a pinch.

4-6 oz unscented cream/lotion (you can use the coconut cloud cream without the other oils)

6-8 drops Valor essential oil

6-8 drops Panaway essential oil

6-8 drops peppermint essential oil

Mix together and store in a glass jar. Apply directly to affected areas as needed.

Valor

Valor works with more than just the physical aspect of the body. Renowned for its strengthening qualities, it enhances an individual’s internal resources. It also has been found to help energy alignment in the body. It contains spruce, rosewood, blue tansy, and frankincense.

Purification

Another staple in my oils – Purification can help to cleanse and sooth insect bites, cuts, and other scrapes. You can diffuse it by itself or with thieves to cleanse and disinfect the air from impurities like smoke and other odors. This is made up of lemon, rosemary, tea tree (Melaleuca) and lavender.

Thieves

Another one of my staple oils. The name comes from four thieves in Europe during the Black Plague who would cover themselves in cloves, rosemary, and other herbs and aromatics while robbing plague victims. It’s a great disinfectant, cleanser, supporting the immune system, and more! It’s a blend of cloves, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary.
