5 Essential Oil Salve Balms

August 1, 2015

In the last few months, we have begun to replace the medicines from our medical cabinet with pure essential oils. You read right: replace. There is no better medicine out there in the world then pure essential oils. I know I probably sound like a commercial right now, but; I'm serious! I used to laugh every time I saw him one of those posts on Instagram talking about selling essential oils. I thought it was silly to spend so much money on oils because I did not realize the healing properties that they carry. Although I do not sell them, I do wholeheartedly believe in them.

 

 

 

Many moons ago, an Instagram friend send me some essential oil samples. I still was skeptical and unwilling to spend money on essential oils. When I received them, I barely used them. I didn't really know what to use them for, really. I had my big AHA moment on a day that I woke up with a cold. I remembered that Instagram friend having told me to put a drop or two of either lemon essential oil or tea tree essential oil at the soles of my feet. And, although I thought that was really funny and impossible, I had to give it a try because I just simply could not be sick that particular week.

 

Before the end of that day, I had already forgotten that I woke up feeling sick. All the symptoms completely faded away! With all that in mind, wouldn't you stop being a skeptic and become a true believer, if that happened to you? I sure did! I was sold and I never looked back.

 

We literally use essential oils for everything. In our water, and our food, on our skin, etc. I am not lying or kidding when I tell you that we use them for absolutely everything! With our Legendary Road Trip coming up, we have to figure a way to take essential oil on the ride with us to be able to use their healing properties. I came up with a way to carry them all along in small little containers. I used small little containers to create miniature salve creams. It was very difficult to decide which essential oil bottles to bring with us along the ride. Since we decided to make salve, we decided to make essential oil blends. Each essential oil salve is a blend of certain essential oils that have been precisely selected for specific goals in mind. One for Focus, one for Pain, one for Congestion, one for Headache and one for Boo-Boo.

 

Now that I've made all these cute little mini essential oil salve balms, I will be packing them into our Stellar First-Aid Kit. This will be with us everywhere we go. We will be storing it in the glove compartment of our car.
