A First Aid Kit of Essential Oils
When you think of a first aid kit, you probably think of a box with band-aids, alcohol swabs, antibiotic ointment, and perhaps an Ace-bandage and an eye wash. A first aid kit of essential oils, however, has wide-reaching healing properties that should not be forgotten when preparing for the unexpected.
Whether you seek to calm taxed nerves or are looking for relief from agitating illness symptoms, defused, essential oils are a safe way to protect your entire family at home or wherever you may travel. Committed to safe, sustainable, non-animal tested scents, Aromatech’s 100% pure essential oil blends are derived from a cold-air diffusion technology that preserves the properties of the oil providing maximum benefit.
When creating a first aid kit of essential oils, there are a few staples each reserve should maintain. While every essential oil has a variety of health benefits that have been utilized for thousands of years, peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender are the big-three when it comes to first-aid healing relief due to their variety of applicable uses.
Our blends, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Breath Easy, are our most popular and effective products for developing a first aid kit of essential oils. Packaged in 10ml bottles, just a few drops in our diffusers evenly distributes their pleasurable therapeutic smell and healing properties. While you are enjoying a fresh, clean scent, you’re also inhaling the natural medicine. Each of our oil blends is ideal for use in our diffusers, or you can add to boiling water for a refreshing steam inhalation treatment.
Peppermint has a high concentration of menthol that provides a strong, sweet, cooling aroma which cuts through congestion. For this reason, it is ideal for cold symptoms and has been indicated for the relief of headaches and sour stomachs. Peppermint pairs well with rosemary and lavender essential oil blends for increased benefits.
Eucalyptus essential oil is predominately eucalyptol which is powerful for combatting chest congestions, coughs, and breathing difficulties. Our blend uses rosemary, white citrus, cedar wood, and sweet ylang ylang to complement the aroma.
Breath Easy blends peppermint, eucalyptus, spearmint, and anise to provide the most enhanced breathing assistance essential oils have to offer. This relaxing blend deodorizes while promoting focus.
Many of our other 100% pure essential oil blends contain lavender, which has wide-reaching healing properties. A hallmark scent of aromatherapy, lavender is used to assist with cold, flu, and inflamed sinus symptoms providing relief from congestion and inflammation while aiding in the breakdown of phlegm built up in the chest. Additionally, lavender is helpful with pain relief, anxiety reduction, and insomnia. If you are looking for a lavender dominant pure essential oil to diffuse throughout your home or business space, try our Serenity, Lullaby, Bedtime, or Calming blends.
Using essential oils for healing is a homoeopathic alternative to conventional chemical-based remedies. A first aid kit of essential oils from Aromatech ensures renewable pet and eco-friendly products free from GMOs, additives, petrochemicals, and synthetic colors. The purity of our product means that oils are highly concentrated and should not be used orally or topically.
