Using essential oil patches is an easy way to use aromatherapy for healing and balancing. Make sure you are using therapeutic grade essential oils! The lesser quality oils won’t have any effect.
These patches help to balance any hormonal imbalances and aid with PMS. They can be freshened by adding more essential oils later in the day, or may be changed twice a day. The best time to wear these patches is from your period until ovulation. If you do not have dot bandages, cotton balls and adhesive tape work well also.
Here is an easy way to make a hormone balancing patch using essential oils.
What you need :
- 2 dot Band-Aids
- evening primrose oil
- essential oils of geranium, clary sage.
1. Take one band aid and apply ten drops of evening primrose oil, two drops of geranium and one drop of clary sage essential oil to the cotton side.
2. Apply this band aid directly over where your ovaries are located, just above the pubic bone..
3. Repeat with the second one, applying it to the other side.
You can use this patch for many other essential oil applications. For example:
Colds/lowered immune system– use one drop each of eucalyptus, tea tree and thyme diluted with 10 drops of flax oil, place essential oil patches to the chest.
Digestive problems– use one drop each ginger and chamomile diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches on the stomach.
For studying– use one drop of each basil, peppermint, lemon diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches at the base of the neck and head (right below the hairline).
Stressed out- use one drop of each lavender, rose, and patchouli diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches on the chest.
Headache– Use two drops of peppermint diluted with 10 drops flax oil, place essential oil patches at the base of the neck and head (right below the hairline).
The possibilities are endless. I love these patches!
