Band-Aid in a Bottle (Essential Oils for Healing)
4 amazing essential oils for healing . . . and how to use them safely!
Lavender loves having fun and taking care of people.
And it has a little advice for you.
Lavender says, don’t worry about getting hurt when you go out to have fun! Run, play, dance, garden, and travel the world with peace of mind!
Lavender knows that you can’t control events. It believes that having peace of mind isn’t about making sure you never get hurt, but about feeling confident in your ability to heal. Lavender will be right there to soothe you if something doesn’t go as planned. It’s one of four powerful essential oils for healing that I’d like to share in this blog post.
Announcing the Cardamom Spotlight Webinar!
Cardamom essential oil has a lot to tell you . . .
Some essential oils have multiple sides to their personalities.
Like Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum).
Cardamom is spicy, sweet, warm, balsamic, and camphoraceous.
These “multiple personalities” expand Cardamom’s skill set and insight. It’s comforting, energizing, warming, supports immunity, eases digestion, encourages circulation, relieves pain, clears congestion, and more.
There is so much to know about Cardamom . . . so I created an Aromahead webinar class entirely dedicated to Cardamom essential oil!
Make Alcohol-Free Hand Cleanser with Aloe Vera

Aloe vera gel is a unique carrier, because it’s not an oil or butter. It’s in a “class all its own” as a liquid gel. It’s lightweight, silky, and skin absorbs it quickly.
I wrote about a few of aloe vera gel’s benefits in my book, The Heart of Aromatherapy (which I published with Hay House!):
“Aloe vera gel is effective for reducing inflammation and soothing irritation. You can also use it for helping skin heal after damage, especially after burns . . . It is a good choice for oily skin or conditions that are moist and weepy, such as blisters. Since it’s not greasy or oily, it doesn’t tend to get all over clothes or linens.”
