Since the AMCC started a few weeks ago a series of articles on Bach Flowers, we felt compelled to add also a series on essential oils (i.e. the boss asked for it), as well as a series on healthy recipes. In case you’re bored this winter, feel free to look up our blog anytime, it will get busy!
So let’s start our series on essential oils with the very essentials oils one should have in one’s home. In our Aromatherapy course #358, we call it the Basic Aromatherapy Kit.
Also called Aniba rosaedora, in case you were looking for a fancy word (does this work in scrabble?), this essential oil is used for all microbial pathologies in children, in particular ENT (ear, nose and throat) and urinary infections.
Put two drops either in some honey, onto a lump of cane sugar, or in one teaspoon of olive oil; take three times a day by placing under the tongue (this is an adult dosage; ask for medical advice for children- not from me).
