Aromatherapy – A review of MD Anderson Cancer Center Essential Oil Recommendations, Plus Extra notes

– A bubble bath that improves memory. A kitchen cleaner that wards off nausea and energizes. A scented handkerchief that calms a patient entering the MRI. The benefits of aromatherapy are real. Below, learn the uses, healing properties and how-tos of using aromatherapy to heal and de-stress from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

FIVE OILS TO REDUCE STRESS AND RELIEVE AILMENTS

-Lavender – First used as perfume by ancient Egyptians 2,500 years ago, lavender is now used to treat insomnia, migraines and provide stress relief.
-Rosemary – This fragrant plant relieves muscle pain, low blood pressure and cold feet and hands.
-Spearmint – The oil from spearmint aids digestion and eases nausea and vomiting.
-Masculine scents – Scents such as bay laurel and ylang-ylang appeal to men for their deep scent. They also treat skin rashes, rheumatism and stomach ailments.

EVERYDAY AROMATHERAPY USES

-Muscle Relaxation Bath Salts – 2 cups of Epsom salts, 5 drops of each oil – lavender, lemon grass, tea tree & orange. Use 1/2 cup mixture per bath.
