Essential Oils

We would suggest the following:

  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Rosemary Essential Oil

Application – Buy a base oil: coconut oil in this case. If you have 20ml of base oil, add half the amount of Essential Oil drops. In this case, you will add 4 drops of Rosemary, 3 drops of Frankincense and 3 drops of Peppermint. Apply the blend over the affected area and the abdomen, as required. Twice a day at least. Especially effective after a bath.

Bath – Your skin is the most absorbent part of the body. The heat of the bath assists in the absorption. There are 2 ways to do this:

  1. Diffusing 5 drops (maximum) of Essential Oils into a teaspoon of milk. Or a cup, if you would like more of a Cleopatra style bath. Use 1 drop of Peppermint, 2 drops of Rosemary and 2 drops of Frankincense. Add Epsom salts.
  2. Or simply add 5ml of your massage blend.

Close all windows. Soak for 15-20 minutes minimum. Avoid splashing in the eyes.

Suppositories look into making suppositories with a coconut oil base and a drop of each oil. With 1 inserted every night, relief can be felt within 4 days.

** A patch test is required for application – 1 drop of aromatherapy oil to 4 drops of base oil. Apply a coin size amount to a patch of skin on the inner arm **

If sensitivity occurs, apply more base oil to soothe the area. Possibly avoid use for a further 10 days. If you wish to continue, dilute to ¼ of the original amount and test on a small area of skin. If there is no further reaction, continue with that dosage.

** Peppermint – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, or if on homoeopathic remedies. Avoid use in children under 5. Use low doses, it’s a very cooling oil and strong. May irritate the skin. It is a stimulant, so be aware of using it at night time. Safe all around for inhaling **

** Frankincense – Avoid use during pregnancy/lactating, if any bleeding disorders or on anticoagulants. Avoid with children below 5 and caution below 8 **

** Rosemary – Avoid during pregnancy, HBP, Heart conditions, use with caution if on prescription medication. Avoid use with children below 5 years of age. A stimulating oil, so no high doses prior to bedtime **
