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
(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.
To heal sprains or broken bones rapidly: ELEMI.
This will ease pain and assist inflammation and bruising caused by injury. The results are incredibly excellent! 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.
How to use and apply castor oil packs. First, saturate cotton flannel, however not dripping, with castor oil. Wrap castor oil cotton flannel around the affected area. For example, let's say you use it to heal sprained or broken bones. First, apply ELEMI on sprained or broken bones and castor oil cotton flannel around the area. Wrap the castor oil cotton flannel with a plastic cling wrap to keep it in place. The plastic wrap will keep it from getting on any linen or fabric. I usually lie a towel underneath while dressing the sprained or broken bone, as castor oil packs can be messy and staining, so good to make a note of that before use. You can loosely wrap in an ace bandage to keep the wrap together when using it all night. Apply Ice on top of the area after everything is wrapped up. NOTE: you can reuse your castor oil cotton flannel packs and store them in the refrigerator in a zip-lock bag.
