    Spider Bites
    If you have children living away from home be sure they have a bottle of Tea Tree oil. My son was recently in New York on business and aquired numerous spider bites. His calf was swollen, hot, and very painful. He picked up a bottle of Tea Tree at a nearby store and he happily reported the next day that it really worked! Dried it up, swelling down, no pain or itching.

    Here's a recipe from Valerie Cooksley
    5 drops Lavender 2 drops Cypress 2 drops Nutmeg 2 drops Peppermint add to bath salts, soak for 20 min. Rest afterwards, elevating your legs.

    Nasal Inhaler
    A homemade inhaler, that is very easy to stick in a pocket or purse is made by simply saving an empty chap stick tube. Wash out with hot soap and water to remove all traces of chap stick and let air dry. Next put a piece of cotton in the inhaler and measure the drops of essential oils for your blend directly on the cotton.

    Nasal Inhaler

  • rock salt
  • 2d. eucalyptus
  • 2d. rosemary
  • 1d. peppermint
    Put a few pieces of rock salt into a glass vial, add the eos. The salt will absorb the oil. Use to inhale the vapors when you have a cold or sinus congestion
