Natures First Aid

herbal medicine natures
CINNAMON BARK (Internal use) hot toddy for viral, flu, and cold symptoms: One tablespoon of honey, a few drops of CINNAMON BARK essential oil and fill a cup with hot water. W/CORIANDER SEED

To heal sprains or broken bones rapidly: ELEMI
This will ease pain, and assist inflammation and bruising caused by injury. The results are incredibly amazing! Remember castor oil wraps also, you can either add castor oil after the essential oils or wrap with castor oil in between the essential oil wraps.

(Generous drops of each are applied to the affected area and let dry somewhat between each essential oil application.)
Applications of ELEMI, LAVANDER, SPRUCE, MARJORAM, and Peru BALSAM. Apply Peru BALSAM last, as the varicosity is a bit sticky. Then wrap the area with a cotton gauze roll and spray cotton gauze with FRANKINCENSE or HELICHRYSUM hydrosol. Remember the golden rule: Ice, Elevate, and Rest. Three to two times a day until you achieve the desired effects and relief.
