The Herbal Medicine Cabinet
Let's build a resource for individuals interested in creating their own herbal healing medicine cabinet for home.
Here are some examples to get us started:
Fever Reduction- A few drops of peppermint and lemon oil applied to the bottom of the feet will reduce most fevers. For delicate skin, these drops should be added to a carrier oil such as coconut, almond, or olive oil.
Headaches- A bit of lavender applied to the temples can help to reduce some headaches, particularly those related to stress. Peppermint also helps with headaches.
Congestion- Eucalyptus oil is great for congestion. It can be applied to the chest (just a few drops in a carrier oil mix) or placed in a diffuser. It is particularly potent when combined with steam.
