So, I developed a rash on my leg and it spread to another part of the same leg. I’m sure this was more than likely an allergic reaction to something; of what, I have no idea. However, I researched in my giant Young Living book, that tea tree works wonderfully to take the rash away. So, I applied, and unsurprisingly it worked. Within a day, my rash had gone down significantly. For an itchy rash, you can also add peppermint and/or lavender oil to calm the itch.
When sickness strikes...
I’ve been hit with an upper-respiratory infection that turned into bronchitis, so I’ve had to figure out the best oil-blend to diffuse in my room and aid in my healing. This blend has been working wonders for bringing out chest congestion and aiding in breathing.
Fill diffuser with distilled water; add 6-8 drops Eucalyptus; 6-8 drops Citrus blend (or Lemon/Orange/Grapefruit), and 6-8 drops Bergamot oil. Breathe away… -xo
