Well-deserved quality!
Due to certain deficiencies in the body, our bones can easily become prone to breakage. Broken bones vary from simple greenstick fracture in children that needs minimal care to injuries involving multiple fractures, broken ligaments and tendons and bone displacements requiring surgical intervention. While Essential Oils cannot repair a broken bone on their own, they can surely assist in making the healing process faster and reducing the discomfort.
 

Why Essential Oils Are Useful In Healing Bones?

People start building bone mass when they are young, hitting their highest bone density in their late twenties. As we age, this bone density starts to decline and becomes more and more important in determining the quality of life and overall health of an individual. Loss in bone density brings about weaker bones and is known to be the underlying cause for several life threatening and degenerative medical conditions. Consequently, it is seen that one out of three women over the age of 50 has reduced bone density.
 
Use of Essential Oils can help maintain this bone density, allowing an individual to live a healthy life. Using Essential Oils in the formative years of an individual’s life can help build stronger bones that are less susceptible to damage. Apart from this, if you already have a fracture or a bone disease, Essential Oils can speed up the healing process and reduce the discomfort involved in the treatment.
 

Best Essential Oils You Can Use For Healing Broken Bones

 

Wintergreen Essential Oil
Wintergreen Essential Oil has a cool and strong aroma. It helps you better your ability to focus and invokes several physical benefits. Methyl salicylate and salicylic acid present in Wintergreen are the two elements responsible for the healing effects of this Oil. In case you are looking for a natural remedy to heal your broken bones, start using Wintergreen Essential Oil for immediate and long lasting relief.
 

Essential Oil Recipes For Healing Broken Bones

 
Peppermint and Eucalyptus Oils Blend
While Peppermint and Eucalyptus do not affect the healing process, their analgesic and cooling properties make it easy for the patient to bear the pain and follow the course of treatment recommended. The cooling sensation can ease the pain and temporarily override the discomfort.
You will need:
A small dark glass container
2-4 tablespoons of carrier Essential Oil (Grape Seed, Almond, Olive etc.)
10-12 drops of Eucalyptus Oil
10-12 drops of Peppermint Oil
Directions:
Add 5-10 drops of Eucalyptus and Peppermint Essential Oils each to 1-2 tablespoons of carrier Oil. Adding carrier Oil is necessary to reach the right concentration level so that the blend doesn’t irritate the skin. Keep the blend in a dark glass bottle away from the sun, and rub over the impacted areas to ease the pain.
 
Essential Oil Recipe for Bone Fracture
An excellent protocol for using Essential Oils for any kind of bone fracture:
Ingredient:
5 drops Basil
5 drops Lavender
5 drops Thyme
5 drops Marjoram
30 drops of fractionated Coconut Essential Oil
5 drops Eucalyptus
5 drops Cypress
Directions:
You should apply this blend on the impacted areas twice a day until the fracture fades out in your X-ray report. For faster results, you can wrap the affected area with a warm towel after the Essential Oils are applied.
Sometimes, we tend to discount the importance of our freedom of movement. Remember, for some individuals, mobility is always a luxury. While broken/damaged bones can restrict the mobility to a significant extent, home remedies like Essential Oilscan help you deal with the discomfort and restore your previous healthy existence.
 
Krill Oil For Broken Bone Treatment
Healthier bones and joints offer flexibility, mobility and steadiness. However, continuous activity can push these bones to their limits, leading to loss of cartilage and decreased mobility. Essential Oils like Krill Oil are helpful in keeping the bones flexible and healthy. Krill Oil is safe for long-term ingestion and includes the Omega-3s EPA and DHA, which help in maintaining healthier bones and joints. Similarly, Krill Oil can help you repair broken bones faster due to its natural tendency of keeping bones healthy and the healing abilities that this Oil features.
Broken tendons are painful and often result in an ongoing pain. While tendons in any part of the body can break, the parts we use the most are more likely to suffer from broken or pulled tendons. Areas that are vulnerable to broken tendons include elbows, shoulders, hips, wrists, knee, ankle, and heel. When it comes to healing broken, torn out or pulled tendons, Essential Oils are known to do a commendable job. Compared to medicines and other popular therapies, they are fastest at healing broken tendons. Before we delve into how Essential Oils can be useful in healing broken tendons, let’s understand what causes them in first place.
 

What Causes Broken Tendons?

There are three main reasons behind broken tendons:
 
Injury or trauma including sprains and strains;
Overusing a muscle too much;
and
Stress.
Sudden injury or an accident might pull a tendon causing unbearable pain and trauma. In such situation, first thing that is recommended is rest. Rest will also allow the Essential Oils to do their work in the best possible manner.
 
It is easy to overuse a muscle by suddenly doing something that the muscle is not used to. In addition, not warming up and cooling down properly before and after a workout leads to lactic acid built up, which expands through the muscles affected and brings about broken tendons, pain and stiffness.
 
Stress and anxiety can also make the muscles tense, especially in the shoulder and neck area, and therefore causing broken tendons.
 
Keeping that in mind, here are some of the best Essential Oils to use for healing broken tendons and eliminating the pain:
 
Lemongrass Essential Oil 
Lemongrass seems to be designed for healing tendons. It regenerates the connective tissue, repairs the broken tendons and helps in regulating the blood flow.
 
Marjoram Essential Oil
Marjoram is made for spasms, rheumatism, sprains and muscles discomfort. It reduces the tension between muscles and tendons, thus helping in the repair of broken tendons.
 
Wintergreen Essential Oil
Wintergreen helps in rheumatism and muscular soreness and discomfort. It is also known for its ability to alleviate pain in muscle tissues. It offers cortisone like action due to its high content of methyl salicylate. Wintergreen is also an all-natural anti-inflammatory. If you believe muscle soreness is the cause for your frequent instances of broken tendons, Wintergreen is the Oil to use.
 
Peppermint Essential Oil
In addition to what Peppermint is popularly known for, I generally use this Oil to intensify the effect of other Oils I have used. For the same reason, this Oil is used in the last. It super charges all you have just put on.
 
Oregano, Lemongrass, Lemon, Lavender, Helichrysum, Cypress, Birch and Basil are some other Oils to consider for the healing of broken tendons.
 

Recommended Recipes And Protocols For The Best Possible Relief In Broken Tendons

 

Essential Oils for Broken Tendons – Recipe 1
Mix 3-4 drops of Birch and Lemongrass each in carrier Oil and apply on the damaged tissue. Layering the impacted area with Peppermint after a couple of minutes might help “drive” the Essential Oils deeper within the cells. Using warm compress can also be beneficial. Follow this procedure 2-3 times daily until soreness is reduced.
 
Essential Oils for Broken Tendons – Recipe 2
Put in your carrier Oil:
10 drops of Peppermint
5 drops of Marjoram
5 drops of Melaleuca
6 drops of Rosemary and
2 drops of Lemongrass.
Use 2-3 ounces of Fractionated Coconut Oil as carrier Oil. If required, you can use baby Oil as carrier Oil.
Mix all the ingredients in a bottle and roll it back and forth for few minutes to warm the Essential Oils and mix them properly. Use this Essential Oil blend straight out of the bottle and rub on the damaged tendon. You can also apply this using a warm cloth. In order to open the pores, place the warm cloth over the impacted area for few minutes. Thereafter, rub the Oil for at least 5 minutes. Make use of a spray jar if the injury is too distressing to massage. For serious injuries, add 2-3 drops of Helichrysum.
If you have cold sores, they are certainly not the best characteristic of your body! These awful little – painful skin lesions – develop due to the herpes simplex infection and so are transmittable. Cold sores generally clear in 7 to 10 days. Many Essential Oils are able to sort out this viral infection but they need to be in your system as soon as the first symptom appears. This means, the more you delay, the less effective these Essential Oils will be. With that said, here are some of the best Essential Oil Recipes you can use for immediate relief in problems like cold sores:
 
1. A Wonderful Essential Oil Recipe for Cold Sore using Geranium Oil
This most basic cold sores treatment recipe still does wonders. Take one drop of Geranium Oil on a water soaked cotton bud and apply on the impacted area. The cold sores will start disappearing rapidly.
 
2. Essential Oil Recipe for Cold Sores treatment using Tea Tree Oil
Mix 1 tablespoon of Coconut or Olive Oil with 4 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil. Dip a cotton swab in the mix, and apply straight to the area effected. Keep the remaining mixture in a tightly covered glass box, and reapply a few times every day up until the core sore has vanished. Do not use Tea Tree Oil inside the nose and never swallow it. Tea Tree Oil is toxic and larger doses can result in fatal consequences.
 
3. Synergistic Blend for Fever Blisters
Ingredients:
5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
8 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil
6 drops of Chamomile Essential Oil
3 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
8 drops of Geranium Essential Oil
Combine the above-mentioned Essential Oils together in 2 fl. oz. sweet almond oil and take one to two drops of the mix on a Q-Tip or cotton ball soaked in water. Apply this blend directly on the cold sore daily for fast and long lasting results.
 
4. Recipe to check the Cold Sore outbreak
As soon as the first symptom of cold sore is seen, apply one drop of Tea Tree Essential Oil mixed with Sweet Almond Oil on the impacted area several times a day. If the pain is not bearable, add diluted Lavender Oil to the blend before applying.
 
5. Essential Oil Recipe to prevent mouth Cold Sores from getting worse
In order to prevent mouth cold sores from getting worse, dilute any one of following Essential Oils with carrier Oil of your choice: Rose Geranium, Eucalyptus, Bergamot, Melissa or Roman Chamomile. Mix as much as 6 drops of the Essential Oil in 5 ml carrier Oil. Blend well and apply around the cold sore using a cotton-tip applicator. As the response seen is different for different individuals, try multiple Essential Oils to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Incorporating the nutritional supplements like Zinc and L-Lysine can also help you avoid further breakouts.
 
6. Cold Sores recipe for immediate relief:
Ingredients:
3 drops of Bergamot
3 drops of Roman Chamomile
3-4 drops of Geranium
3 drops of Eucalyptus
3 drops of Lavender
2 drops of Tea Tree Oil
3 drops of Lemon Balm (Melissa)
Mix the ingredients and apply the blend directly on the cold sores you have. In case you have cracked and dried out cold sores, add 1 oz of Sweet Almond to the blend. You can add 2 oz. of vodka for wet cold sores to dry them out and heal them. Shake well before every use.
 
7. Using Essential Oils with an empty gel capsule:
Ingredients:
10 empty gel capsules
2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
4 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
4 drops of Oregano Essential Oil
Mix all the Essential Oils and take a few drops in an empty gel capsule. Just split the capsule into two parts and let the blend you have prepared go in. Thereafter, close the capsule. I take one capsule in the morning and one at night for a period of 5 days, which is total of 10 pills, for relief with my problem of cold sores.
 
8. One perfect recipe for the treatment of Cold Sores in babies
Things you will need:
2 Tbsp Sweet Oil
2 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil
2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
1 small jar with restricted cap
A Q-tip to apply the Oil
Step-By-Step Guideline
Mix the ingredients well and shake. In addition, shake well before every future use.
When you first realize that a cold sore is coming on your baby’s skin, just drop the q-tip into the blend you have prepared and apply on the impacted area. It is likely that the cold sore will go in an hour. However, if this doesn’t happen, apply the second coat.
If your baby already has cold sores, apply the blend using a q-tip after every 2 hours until all the signs of a cold sore disappear. Doing this for one day is enough to eliminate any kind of cold sore in babies.
Tea Tree, Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils are all useful for fighting against herpes virus. Adding these Oils to your blend makes it more effective. However, make sure that the blend is not too strong for the baby.
No one recipe mentioned in this article should be stronger than a combination of them. In addition, not every remedy in this list will work the same for everybody. For the same reason, try them in different combinations. With experimentation, it is possible to figure out one or a combination of Essential Oils that works best for your body.

Lung health is a topic that many people don’t think about on a regular basis, yet it would probably be the first thing on our minds if something were to go wrong. Ever since I started my research into the topic of respiratory health, it really dawned on me how critically important it is to take care of your lungs. After all, there’s a reason why the lungs are called one of your “vital organs” – if they’re not healthy, it could be a threat to your very life.
 
As unbelievable as this sounds, the average person takes more than 6 million breaths per year according to the American Lung Association.  This means that your respiratory system stays very busy on a daily basis, and your lungs are working 24/7 to keep you alive and healthy. With that kind of astronomical workload, it only makes sense to take care of it as best as you can.
 

The Respiratory System and How It Works

Your respiratory system is made up of three main areas:
The airways, which include your mouth, throat, windpipe, nose, sinuses, and bronchial tubes. Each one of these components has highly complex features that play a specific role in breathing and respiration. For example, your sinuses are responsible for regulating the humidity and temperature of inhaled air, and the hairs inside your nose act as a cleaning system for inhaled air as well.
The lungs and blood vessels, which work together to take inhaled oxygen and transmit it into the bloodstream. Your lungs basically push the oxygen from inhaled air into the bloodstream via a network of blood vessels known as capillaries. This carries oxygen to every cell of your body, and in return, the cells exchange this oxygen for carbon dioxide, which is pushed back through the bloodstream and purged from the body via exhaled air.
There are also important muscles and bones that are a part of the respiratory system. Your diaphragm is a strong muscular wall that separates your chest cavity from your abdominal cavity, and it helps you draw in air and expand your lungs. Your ribs are bones that have a little bit of flexibility, as they can move ever so slightly in order to help your lungs with the job of expanding and contracting.
This intricate, multi-faceted set of components is what makes up your respiratory system.
 
When you add it all up, the basic job of your respiratory system is to take in fresh air to nourish your body, and then remove waste gases from your system. It does this over and over again, to the tune of roughly 17,000 breaths a day! This staggering fact alone is enough for anyone to see why we should pay attention to our lungs!
 

Tips For Optimal Lung Health

Your lung capacity will naturally decline as you get older, but there are several things you can do to take care of your lungs and keep them healthy every day. Below are some simple yet highly effective tips to ensure optimal lung health.
 
1. Don’t smoke
You’ve probably heard this over and over again through various PSA’s on TV, but the message cannot be overemphasized. According to the American Lung Association, smoking cigarettes is the number-one cause of lung cancer, as well as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
 
Cigarette smoke contains literally hundreds of harmful chemicals – many of which are known carcinogens – which can irritate the lungs and cause chronic inflammation or swelling that blocks the airways. This can trigger chronic bronchitis, producing the persistent cough so aptly named “smoker’s hack”. Not only that, but cigarette smoke literally deteriorates the tissue in your lungs, often setting the stage for cancerous cells to begin to form.
 
There are also a host of other related ailments that can be brought about by smoking, including premature wrinkling, leukoflakia (a.k.a. “smoker’s patch”), arthritis, peptic ulcers, tooth pain and decay, gastrointestinal difficulties, insomnia, headaches, and heart disease, just to name a few. I realize that quitting smoking is much easier said than done, but do your best to use every natural and medicinal aid at your disposal to help you in your fight – after all, your very life is on the line.
 
2. Exercise on a regular basis
Your lungs definitely get a regular workout as-is, but engaging in moderate to rigorous exercise will improve their capacity and efficiency of oxygen delivery even more. This is a win-win, because exercise helps so many other areas of your health as well.
 
3. Avoid exposure to outdoor and indoor air pollution
Yes, this is another task that is easier said than done, but there are some things you can do to mitigate the amount of pollution you expose yourself to. For example, you can make your home and car smoke-free areas, and avoid getting in the way of second-hand smoke that you might be exposed to when you’re out and about.
 
Pay attention to smog alerts and other official air quality reports from your local government. Have your home tested for radon, which is a colorless and odorless gas that is emitted naturally by rocks and soil. This subtle gas that can infiltrate homes through poorly sealed basement floors, cracks in walls or foundations, and other openings.
 
Asbestos is another silent killer you need to watch out for. It’s an invisible carcinogen found in many products used in the industrial and commercial industries during the 20th century. The exposure to asbestos puts you at risk of developing mesothelioma – a rare cancer that primarily develops in the lining of the lungs. Asbestos can be found in places built before 1980, so if you live in an older house, make sure to get it inspected! Avoid prolonged exposure to cleaning supplies and other household chemicals. In addition, consider purchasing a couple of indoor air purifiers to help clean the air of various spores, dust and pet dander that naturally floats around the house.
 
4. Practice breathing exercises
Deep breathing is a great way to “max out” the oxygenation of your blood. Just inhale slowly through your nose until you feel like your lungs are completely full, and then hold it for about 1 to 2 seconds. Now exhale slowly through your mouth, allowing as much air to escape as you can before repeating the cycle again. Perform this exercise for about 2 to 3 minutes at a time, and repeat at various times throughout the day.
 
5. Use essential oils to promote lung health
While herbal remedies have been used to heal lungs since long, using essential oils is also extremely beneficial for the lungs. For example, eucalyptus oil, which is the most commonly used essential oil for healing lungs, is a potent antiseptic, expectorant and decongestant that can benefit and improve the entire respiratory system. It is possible to make a highly effective herb inhalation to clean and strengthen the lungs.
 
You can also inhale the steam of bergamot, rosemary or peppermint to open up your bronchial passages and eliminate the presence of bacteria in your lungs. Just bring 2 to 3 cups of water to a boil, transfer to a glass bowl and add 5 to 10 drops of one or more of the above essential oils. Put a towel over your head, bring your face close to the bowl (not too close to burn yourself) and then start gently inhaling the steam. Just remember to keep your eyes closed to avoid burning or watering. You can repeat this up to 3 times a week for optimal and healthy lungs.
 
Now, lets dive deep into the world of essential oils and explore how they can be used effectively to improve your overall respiratory health.
 

Which Essential Oils Can Be Used For Healing The Lungs?

Time and time again, I’m always telling my Oliviarites that there’s no better way to make use of essential oils than with aromatherapy. Sure, it might be the most economical method of getting the most out of your precious oils, but did you also know that the lungs allow the healing properties of essential oils to efficiently sneak into your body.
 
Once inhaled, essential oils spread their therapeutic properties all around the body starting with the lungs themselves. Some of the ways essential oils support lung health include fighting off airborne infections, boosting the immune system, opening up the airways for more oxygen intake, combating allergies, and much more. Keeping that in mind, here are some other essential oils you can use for healing lungs and keeping them healthy:
 
1. Eucalyptus Essential Oil
This one’s a no brainer; it is the main ingredient in many over-the-counter medication after all. Easily identifiable by its potent, vivid and unmistakable aroma, Eucalyptus EO is hands down the best when it comes to anything respiratory.
 
That’s because the oil comprises of a unique set of compounds that make it ideal for the lungs. These include antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antispasmodic properties. But it’s got to be the oil’s unrivaled ability to decongest the respiratory system that makes it king.
 
It breaks up phlegm and mucus along the airways for easier breathing and fights off any respiratory infections along the way. As a bonus, eucalyptus oil stimulates regeneration of lung tissue by boosting blood and nutrient circulation.
 
2. Rosemary Essential Oil
One of the many reasons why Rosemary EO is becoming a household staple is due to its antioxidant properties. If ever there was a fountain of youth somewhere, you can bet that rosemary is growing somewhere nearby.
 
These properties combined with its anti-inflammatory nature make it the best at reversing any damage done to the lungs. The oil can also boost the immune system and contains a mild sedative that helps with allergies, sore throats and several other respiratory ailments.
 
3. Camphor and Thyme Essential Oil
Here’s a combination that can help clear the symptoms of almost any respiratory issue. Researchers have found that when inhaled, Thyme EO has a relaxing effect on the lungs that promotes deep, rich and clear breathing. These effects combine well with camphor to create an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and calming blend.
 
4. Black Pepper Essential Oil
We’ve all seen cartoons where one whiff of pepper sends the whole room into uncontrollable sneezing fits. When harnessed, the power of black pepper essential oil is more than enough to clear up a wide range of allergies and lung specific illnesses. This includes asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis and many other issues
 
5. Peppermint Essential Oil
The expectorant qualities of Peppermint essential oil help in the treatment of upper respiratory congestion caused due to asthma, bronchitis, allergies, colds, flu etc. For the same reason, peppermint essential oil is an essential ingredient in lung healing balms available on the market. In contrast to prescription drugs and OTC therapies, peppermint essential oil is completely safe to use and does not cause any drowsiness or other adverse effects.
 
6. Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender is one of the best essential oils to eliminate infection in lungs. Studies have proven that lavender, when combined with eucalyptus, can kill 70 percent of the staphylococcus bacteria present in the lungs.
 

5 Effective Lung-Healing Essential Oil Blends / Recipes

1. Recipe for Mucus in Lungs
Knowing what the functions of your lungs entail, the last thing you want is mucus or fluid to build up in there. Typically, the main causes of excessive mucus in the lungs are usually allergens, pollutants, smoke, and lung diseases such as COPD. If left unchecked, the mucus could make breathing impossible.
 
In this case, the best essential oil for the job would be Eucalyptus EO. This is because of its unrivaled expectorant ability that allows it to decongest the respiratory system. Eucalyptus will break up phlegm and mucus along the airways so you can breathe easier. If you’ve got mucus in your lungs, try this here recipe:
 
Homemade EO Vaporub
Ingredients
12 drops Eucalyptus EO
8 drops Rosemary EO
10 drops Peppermint EO
2 tbsp shea butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
Directions
In a hot water bath, melt the shea butter and coconut oil together. Once melted, stir as it cools and add in the essential oils. Let it set for an hour or so in a dark glass container. To make use of the blend, apply a bit on the chest, back, neck and soles of feet to encourage mucosa breakdown.
 
2. Recipe for Lung Inflammation
Out of all the currently diagnosed lung diseases and respiratory disorders, there’s one unifying factor to be noted. One particular symptom reigns supreme when it comes to health issues affecting the lungs – inflammation.
From simple common colds to more complex ailments like pneumonia and cancer, the inflammation of tissue layers lining the lungs is an all too common occurrence. To bring down lung inflammation, try the following blend.
 
Respiratory Anti-Inflammatory Blend  
What you need
6 drops Camphor EO
4 drops Thyme EO
3 drops Rosemary EO
Bowl of hot water
Towel
Directions
Fill a bowl halfway with hot, boiling water and place it in front of you. Add in the essential oils and stir to combine. Sitting in front of the bowl, lean forward and create a tent over your head with the towel. Stay there inhaling deeply for about 10 minutes; the inflammation should come down soon. Repeat 3 times every day for consistent therapy.
 
3. Recipe for Emphysema
Emphysema can be described as a progressive lung disease that causes shortness of breath due to air sacs overinflating. This leads to destruction of the lung tissue associated with exchange of gases. As a result, exhalation is slowed with little to no movement of gases through the alveoli.
That’s why the best essential oil for emphysema has to be able to boost blood circulation to the lungs. Naturally, Eucalyptus EO boasts of strong stimulating properties that will work well to our cause. Black pepper also shows some promise in promoting nutrient flow back to the lungs.
 
Oxygenating Blend for Emphysema
Ingredients
14 drops Eucalyptus EO
6 drops Peppermint EO
10 drops Black Pepper EO
Quarter cup beeswax
Half a cup of coconut oil
Directions
When dealing with emphysema, shortness of breath is to be expected. To boost oxygen levels in the lungs, you’ll need the right combination of essential oils. Start by melting the beeswax in a mason jar over water and add in the coconut oil. Once it cools, add in the EOs and stir thoroughly. Now you have a vaporub that will clear mucus as well as boost oxygen intake in the alveoli.
 
4. Recipe for Lung Damage
Looking at all the above respiratory issues, it’s clear that the lungs are a huge target for a wide range of diseases. Whether as a result of years of smoking or an unfortunate ailment such as COPD, the lungs can easily get damaged – sometimes beyond repair.
Once your ability to breathe is gone, well… To make sure that any damage to the lungs get reversed early, no other essential oil rivals the rejuvenating abilities of Rosemary EO. Here’s how to make use of it.
 
Lung Damage Reversal Formula
What you need
6 drops Rosemary EO
3 drops Lemon EO
2 drops Lavender EO
Diffuser
Direction
This is what we call aromatherapy at its best. All you need to do is drip the essential oils in your unit and diffuse as you normally would through the night. The oils will become airborne for constant inhalation which will help repair the lungs all night long. Most lung damage cases are progressive, so make sure you diffuse the blend every night for maximum benefits.
 
5. Recipe for Lung Health / Healing
This blend of oils has enough strength to fight respiratory infections and diseases.
Lung Healing Blend
Ingredients
4 drops Eucalyptus EO
7 drops Ravintsara EO
5 drops Birch EO
8 drops Peppermint EO
5 drops Lemon EO

Add 6-8 drops of the above blend to your diffuser. Alternatively, you can add 5 drops to a bowl of hot, boiling water and do stream inhalation. This blend can help alleviate signs and symptoms of asthma and pneumonia.
 

How To Use Essential Oils For Best Possible Relief In Lung Healing?

 

1. Topical
Dilute the essential oil blend in a carrier oil and apply on the back, chest and the vita flex points of the feet. Application around the inner thighs can improve the circulation of blood in the lungs.
 
2. Inhalation
For fastest results, inhalation is the way to go. Here is how to do inhalation for best possible results:
Add 2-3 cups water into a clear saucepan or a small pot. Bring this water to a boil.
Add 10 to 15 drops of organic eucalyptus essential oil into the boiling hot water and cover the saucepan with a lid. Turn off the burner.
Remove the pan from the burner and bend your head over the pan with a towel covering your head: this helps make certain that the vapors are not lost in the air.
Breathe in the eucalyptus steam that emerges out after every 10-15 seconds. When the vapors are in, hold your breath for few seconds and then exhale. Do this for at least three times a day. If needed, more eucalyptus drops can be added (peppermint is a also a good substitute).
Warning
Try to keep your eyes closed to avoid eye burning or watering.
Both marjoram and eucalyptus make highly powerful inhalations. Therefore, avoid using both these oils together.
 
3. Ingestion
It is generally the case that ingesting essential oils is rarely needed. However, if ingestion is what you are going to do, use only the essential oils that are deemed appropriate for such use, i.e. they have to be edible therapeutic or organic grade essential oils. In addition, before ingesting essential oils, always consult a doctor. While some doctors recommend putting few drops of certain essential oils under the tongue to resolve a cough, in my experience, essential oils can best be used topically with proper dilution levels.
 
4. Use in a suppository
The easiest way to reach the lungs is through the colon. When using this method, the benefits reach the lungs within minutes. Put two to three drops of a suitable essential oil in a capsule and add carrier oil to fill it up to the brim. Castor is the best carrier oil to use, as it is very lubricating.
 
The ideal essential oil to carrier oil ratio is 1% to 2%, which means 6 or 12 drops of essential oil to one ounce (30ml) of carrier oil respectively. If you intend to use this on a child, use 1% dilutino or less and try first on yourself to make sure that it is comfortable. If the essential oil is properly diluted, it should not sting.
Hemorrhoids are a common problem experienced by over 50 % of people by the time they reach the age of 50. The problems associated with them are still considered a taboo topic, forcing many individuals to delay their treatment and suffer needlessly for way too long.
 
Numerous natural treatments for hemorrhoids exist: some take care of the symptoms while others tackle the cause itself. The use of essential oils is highly recommended for the reason that they offer long-term relief. With that said, here is all you should know about using essential oils for the treatment of hemorrhoids.
 

What Makes Essential Oils So Beneficial For The Natural Treatment Of Hemorrhoids – Top 3 Reasons?

Below are 3 reasons why essential oils are invaluable to deal with hemorrhoids:
 
1. Reducing the inflammation caused by hemorrhoids
Essential oils are the best known for their anti-inflammatory effects. By easing the inflamed capillaries and tissues, these oils eliminate the pressure that constricts the anal canal, thus alleviating the pain caused.
 
2. Alleviating the burning, stinging, and itching discomfort of hemorrhoids
When the hemorrhoids are inflamed, they become really delicate. This is why they can be responsive to even a simple touch, causing pain and itch. This hypersensitivity of pain receptors is caused due to the chemical agents released by the body to overcome the inflammation. Essential oils are known to reduce this hypersensitivity of pain receptors thus offering relief from unnecessary pain.
 
3. Healing the rupture caused due to hemorrhoids and stopping the bleeding
Bleeding from hemorrhoids can be responsible for causing anemia. Essential oils can heal the torn skin and reduce the swelling, which consequently reduces the blood loss.
 

The 6 Best Essential Oils To Deal With Hemorrhoids

 
Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree oil is an anti-inflammatory agent that can be applied straight on the swollen hemorrhoids. I believe that Tea Tree oil is more effective when 2 drops of it is mixed with castor oil. Simply apply this blend over a piece of cotton or soft fabric and tap it carefully on the affected area.
 
Lavender Oil
I often blend Lavender oil with juniper and apply straight on the swollen parts. Another way to use it is adding it to your sitz bath. Lavender will definitely reduce the pain and itching.
 
Cypress Oil
This oil can be used directly on bleeding hemorrhoids. Alternatively, you can dilute it by adding a couple of drops of it to a tablespoon of base oil (such as sweet almond, jojoba, coconut or avocado oil) and then adding two drops of lemon juice. This blend can thereafter be applied on the painful hemorrhoids. This blend of oils is also equally helpful when used in sitz bath water.
 
Dill Oil
Prepared from the dill plant, Dill oil has to be diluted using a carrier oil before it is used on the affected parts. In order to dilute this oil, you can add 2 drops of it to one tablespoon of carrier oil. This will certainly help you overcome the pain.
 
Frankincense Oil
It is believed that Frankincense was gifted to the child Jesus by the three magi who came to bless him. For hemorrhoids, I mix 2 to 3 drops of this oil to 2 tablespoons of liquid lanolin, and massage onto the affected parts.
 
Chamomile Oil
Chamomile is an essential oil that helps you overcome pain and it relieves the inflamed skin. You can dilute it with the base oil and use straight on the affected areas.
 
If you prefer an all-natural alternative vs a painful surgery, no matter whether you have prolapsed or thrombosed or hemorrhoids with minor bleeding, do not look any further. You are guaranteed fast hemorrhoid relief without any pain. You may try Amoils H-Hemorrhoids if you don’t want to make your own blend.
 

3 Ways To Use Essential Oils For The Best Possible Relief In Hemorrhoids

 
1. Topical application
While some of the essential oils can be used directly on the skin, others need to be diluted in carrier oils. Some of the oils that can be used as base oils include castor oil, jojoba, sweet almond, grape seed oil, sesame oil and olive oil. Take 2 to 3 drops of the essential oil blend of your choice on a clean fabric or pre-moistened cloth and apply gently over the affected portion. You can repeat this once per day or more as required.
 
2. Sitz bath
Take sitz baths daily to reduce pain and facilitate the recovery process. Add about 8 drops of lavender essential oil to a little carrier oil and mix it to your warm bath water. Have a bath in this water to soothe the itching and the pain caused by hemorrhoids.
 
3. Massage
Recipe for Hemorrhoids massage oil:
 

Step 1: Mix the following oils

40 drops of base oil (such as castor oil, jojoba or sweet almond)
3 drops chamomile oil
4 drops lavender oil
5 drops geranium oil
 
Step 2: Mix well and store it in a glass bottle. Massage 2-3 drops of this blend on the affected areas 3 times a day.
 

What To Do If You Have Hemorrhoids During Pregnancy?

Hemorrhoids are a common scenario during pregnancy, especially in the 3rd trimester. Some females face them for the very first time while they’re pregnant. And, if you have actually had them prior to pregnancy, you’re most likely to have them once more now.
Hemorrhoids might also be the major cause for many of the early postpartum problems. However, hemorrhoids that have developed during pregnancy will start to disappear quickly post-delivery, provided you’re cautious and avoid being constipated.
 

Why Using Essential Oils Is The Most Practical Solution To Dealing With Hemorrhoids During Pregnancy?

Therapeutic grade essential oils are natural products. Therefore, it is completely safe to use them while you’re pregnant, as long as you’re healthy and you know how to use them. Most of the essential oils respond very quickly, so it is necessary to use them moderately. While it is true that essential oils are all natural and safe, it is necessary to make sure that you buy top quality oils from a reliable seller. Fake products are definitely not safe or reliable.
 

How To Use Essential Oils For Best Possible Relief In Hemorrhoids During Pregnancy

Mixing Cypress, Geranium, and Lavender with Coconut oil and applying this blend topically over the affected areas can do wonders in terms of offering relief in hemorrhoids during your pregnancy. You can use the mix straight on the affected area during pregnancy or post-delivery. Adding the mix to a spray bottle with coconut oil can also be a quite efficient way of application.
You can similarly mix a 4 oz bottle of Jojoba with 10 drops of Geranium essential oil and 30 drops of Cypress essential oil and rub few drops of the blend around the anal region two times a day for substantial relief.
A pregnant woman can similarly have a sitz bath; your healthcare facility might offer you one, or you can purchase one from amazon. Mix warm water and Epsom salts. Add a few drops of essential oils to this mix before adding it to the sitz bath. Sit in this water for 10 minutes several times in a day.
 

The Perfect Essential Oil Recipe For Relief In Hemorrhoids During Pregnancy

To an empty 5ml bottle, add 2 drops of Helicrysum, 2 drops of Cypress, 2 drops of Geranium, 2 drops of Lavender, 2 drops of Myrrh and 20 drops of carrier oil. As it will be applied on a mucous membrane, which is very sensitive, you need to dilute this blend with carrier oil like almond, olive, coconut oil, etc. In order to allow these oils to mix well, shake well and leave the mix as it is inside the bottle for complete 1 day.
 
How to use this blend?
Take 2 drops of this mix on your finger and rub it over the inflamed location on the rectum each time you go to the bathroom. In addition, using it with a glass spray bottle is a welcome idea, as you simply have to use a few squirts on the affected area. Use this blend for 7-10 times in a day and it will certainly help in reducing the inflammation and bleeding, which is quite detrimental during the pregnancy.
 

Tea Tree Oil Hemorrhoids Treatment

Tea Tree oil is transparent and slightly yellowish in color. It does not combine well with water and carries unique camphor like smell.
 
How To Use Tea Tree Oil As A Hemorrhoids Treatment?
A Tea Tree Oil blend for hemorrhoids treatment needs to be prepared and used with utmost care. Since it is very effective, using pure Tea Tree Oil can trigger negative responses at first.
In regular aromatherapy, where the medication is taken in through the skin and nasal passages, hemorrhoids treatment based on Tea Tree oil must always be diluted in a carrier oil, such as sweet almond, just minutes before it is applied on the skin. It is worth noting that Tea Tree Oil preparations do not last for long in the presence of oxygen and sunlight. Therefore, store in a cool and dark place with the lid on.
 
When Tea Tree Oil is prepared for the purpose of a long term hemorrhoids treatment, it is advisable to keep it suspended in an ointment or cream carrying the carrier ingredients. This would avoid it coming in direct contact with light or oxygen.
 
In most cases, if you’re getting a hemorrhoid infection of some kind, a Tea Tree oil based treatment can treat it without delay. On top of it, the Tea Tree oil based treatment can prevent you from getting an infectious hemorrhoid in the first place.
 
5% Tea Tree oil is sufficient to offer you a sustainable relief by killing all the harmful bacteria and viruses present in the anal region.
 

What Can Fail With Tea Tree Oil Based Treatments For Hemorrhoids – The Side Effects

Naturally, something as effective as Tea Tree oil is likely to cause small side effects. No treatment works without causing minor side effects. However, with a bit of research and common sense, these side effects can be minimized.
 
To begin with, never ingest Tea Tree oil orally. If this oil gets into your digestive system, it becomes highly hazardous for your body. Consuming Tea Tree oil orally has resulted in serious side effects such as sleepiness, confusion, aberrations, coma, unsteadiness, weakness, diarrhea, indigestion, blood cell irregularities, and development of serious rashes. In addition, you should always remember to keep all Tea Tree oil based treatments from the reach of kids and pets.
 
Obviously, considering that we’re discussing hemorrhoids, it’s not a good idea to put any Tea Tree oil based treatment directly inside your anorectal canal. The mucous tissue of the rectal canal is absorbent and very delicate, so you might possibly face the similar symptoms that happen when Tea Tree oil is ingested orally. Putting it simply, Tea Tree oil based treatments are not suggested for use over anything except your external skin.
 
In addition to that, do a patch test before executing any Tea Tree oil based treatment. In case there are any signs of redness or itching, discontinue the treatment right away. You should also stop the treatment if there is too much rectal blood loss. Some individuals have very delicate skin and they react terribly to even the diluted forms of tea tree oil. If there is no visible improvement after using Tea Tree oil for a period of 3 weeks, then it is high time that you meet your physician.
 
On another note; it is never a good idea to use Tea Tree oil based treatments on your ears or eyes as both of them are extremely sensitive portions of the body. While there have not been many cases registered, considering the strong nature of Tea Tree oil, it will most likely burn the delicate tissues of these organs.

We all have that one guest who always seems to be wearing one scent all the time – Eau de Foot (literally!). You know what I’m talking about; that one friend who you always prefer to host in open areas like the balcony, backyard, patio, basically anywhere but inside your home.
 
Why? Coz their smelly feet will stink up the place faster than a cornered skunk. But instead of chasing my uncle outside all the time (he knows who he is), I decided to find out what really causes his foot odor and if there’s a remedy on God’s green earth that could help him. And wouldn’t you know it – the culprit was toenail fungus.
 

What is Toenail Fungus?

Also known as onychomycosis (quite a mouthful), toenail fungus is one of the most common foot problems affecting a large percentage of the global population. The name refers to a condition that affects the nails, but it’s more common for toenails than fingernails.
It is typically characterized by pain, redness or inflammation in the toe. The infection starts off as slight discoloration and develops slowly. As it goes deeper, the infection causes heavy discoloration as the nails become thicker and more brittle. Definitely not a pretty sight.
Toenail fungus affects over 10 percent of the population, with older people and men being more prone to it. Fortunately, the condition is quite easy to address even without treatment. But first, how do you really know it’s toenail fungus and not something else like athletes foot?
 

So, First Things First: What Does It Look Like?

Although you might think otherwise, nail fungus is a very common nail condition. It all starts with the appearance of white or yellow colored spots beneath the tip of your toenail or fingernail and goes deeper causing the nail to crumble, thicken and discolor at the edge. Further, the nail could become dull, ragged and brittle, dark in color, or may change shape.
You may start suffering from the condition called onycholysis where the nail starts to split from the nail bed causing great discomfort and pain. If this condition is ignored, it could go on expanding indefinitely and cause trouble in other parts of the toe. In several cases, the infection comes back even after going through the complete course of treatment.
 

Symptoms And Causes Of Toenail Fungus

Thickening and yellowing discoloration of the toenails are a dead giveaway for onychomycosis. However, you may also see black, white or even green discoloration. The toenails become more brittle as the fungus progresses with pieces or entire nails breaking off. The skin underneath gets painful and inflamed with a very foul stench emanating.
In short, you’ve got toenail fungus if your nails are:
 
Thickened and discolored
Distorted, brittle, ragged and crumbly
Getting darker with debris buildup underneath
Breaking away from the nail bed
Painful and inflamed
Smelling foul
Causes
As the name suggests, toenail fungus is caused by a set of several fungal organisms with the most common being dermatophytes, yeasts and molds.
Derrmatophytes are the fungus responsible for the condition in temperate western countries while candida yeasts and molds are more frequent in regions with hot, humid climates. These organisms are found almost everywhere.
So, perhaps the most important question to ask would be, what are the factors that put some people more at risk of getting toenail fungus than others?
Some of the most common being exposure to excessive moisture, a pH imbalance in the skin, inadequate foot hygiene, and/or poor circulation (often seen in diabetics). Other factors include:
 
Perspiring Heavily
People who sweat more (especially in the feet) are at a higher risk of getting toenail fungus. That’s because the yeasts and molds prefer warmer, humid temperatures which you provide when you sweat all day in your shoes.
 
Health Problems
People with circulatory problems, athletes foot, or diabetes are at a higher risk of getting toenail fungus. That’s because these ailments lead to low peripheral temperatures on the feet or weakened immune systems.
 
Going Barefoot
Toenail fungus can spread through direct contact such as when you walk barefoot in public places. These include swimming pools, gyms, hotels, spas, showers, among others.
 

When Should You Seek Treatment?

More often than not, treatment is not always necessary for toenail fungus – as long as you can maintain good hygiene and proper foot care, the problem tends to go away on its own. However, there are instances where the onychomycosis could lead to other severe infections that could spread beyond the feet.
Likewise, a severe case of toenail fungus could become very painful and cause permanent damage to your nails. With this in mind, it’s clear that getting treatment (conventional or otherwise) as early as possible is the best thing you could do.
The first group to seek treatment should be where there’s an underlying illness involved such as diabetes, athletes foot or people with a suppressed immune system. After that, anyone who has tried to get rid of the fungus at home and failed should also seek treatment.
 

Conventional Treatments for Onychomycosis

Again, not all cases of toenail fungus will require treatment. But if your doctor confirms you will require some treatment, here’s how conventional treatments work in an escalating order.
 
Oral Antifungals
Your doctor will prescribe an oral antifungal medication based on the kind of fungus you’re dealing with. These oral medications include terbinafine which is substantially more effective than the alternatives fluconazole and itraconazole.
 
Topical Agents
Topical antifungal treatment is also prescribed for some cases of toenail fungus. While oral treatment takes about 3 months, topical treatments usually need to be applied for prolonged periods of up to a year. Some of the topical agents include amorolfine, ciclopirox nail paint and efinaconazole. Unfortunately, these treatments only address the fungus and don’t heal the nail itself.
 
Surgery
In more extreme cases where the above treatments aren’t working, doctors may recommend chemical or surgical debridement of the affected nails. But not to worry, a new nail will usually re-grow within a year.
 

Facts About Nail Fungus

The two images below show 13 facts about nail fungus.
 

What Are the Benefits of Going All-Natural?

You’ve already seen that most cases of toenail fungus don’t require treatment. But if we could all do something early on before the infection spreads, then I can confidently say that zero cases of toenail fungus would even need treatment in the first place. This is just one advantage of going all natural with your toenail fungus treatment. Other benefits include:
 
1. Zero Side Effects
This has to be the most notable benefit of opting for natural treatments as opposed to conventional treatment. See, almost all the medical treatments for toenail fungus come with dire side effects. In the case of oral antifungal drugs, they pose the severe risk of harming your liver’s function.
 
2. True Treatment
Topical agents on the other hand don’t even promise a cure, they just improve the appearance of fungal nails. This is a huge waste of time and money if you ask me. Like washing your cup on the outside only and calling it clean.
 
3. Budget Friendly
Natural treatments have always stood out for being cheaper alternatives. But for problems like toenail fungus which require extended periods of treatment, the cost of conventional treatment will really get you down. Who wants to take expensive antifungals and then apply costly creams for a whole year? Natural treatments may take just as long, but at least they won’t cost as much.
 

Why Use Essential Oils For Toenail Fungus: Are They Safe?

I’ll be honest, there’s no shortage of medical treatments to fight off any type of fungus. Unfortunately, all these medication come with hefty side effects such as allergic reactions, heart problems, liver damage, gastrointestinal disorders among others.
 
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have bad nails but keep my heart and liver healthy. Well, what if I told you there was a way to treat toenail fungus without any of the side effects?
 
Essential oils are packed with all the natural healing components your body needs to beat the fungus. Some essential oils such as Tea Tree and Oregano are ripe with antimicrobial, antifungal and antibacterial properties that eliminate yeasts and harmful organisms in your system while others like lemon and cinnamon oil prevent any regrowth of fungus.
 
Other essential oils like frankincense are known to boost the immune system while peppermint will provide a double whammy in regards to relieving discomfort and eliminating foot odor.
 
Having said that, here are some of the best essential oils you can use for quick relief in nail and toenail infection:
 

The Best 7 Essential Oils For Toenail Fungus

 

1. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is one of the best oil for combating this villain fungus. My own personal experience says that you can bank upon this oil as a standalone solution for all your toenail fungus woes.
 

How to use Tea Tree oil for best possible outcomes?

In order to begin with the treatment, clean the affected area by rubbing it with alcohol, and then apply undiluted tea tree oil straight to the nails. Allow them to soak in the solution. After about 10 minutes, scrub the nails very softly using a soft bristle toothbrush.
Follow this therapy on a daily basis until a new healthy nail grows out completely. Thereafter, continue using the oil for another 2-3 weeks to prevent the re-growth of the fungus.
 
2. Oregano Oil
Oregano is highly effective in killing the fungi that is responsible for nail and toenail infections. Only a small amount of this oil is enough to help you get rid of all kinds of infection in the toenail.
In addition, Oregano can easily top any list of essential oils that are effective against any kind of colds.
 
3. Orange Oil
Another essential oil that I recommend to use against toenail fungus infection is Orange Oil. You can combine this oil with tea tree oil to make a highly effective blend that can easily counter the fungi development in the toenail.
Another way of using orange essential oil is mixing it in ACV and then applying the blend over the affected area. Both these methods of using orange essential oil will get you quick relief.
 
4. Lavender Oil
The anti-fungal quality of Lavender essential oil makes it an effective remedy for treating mild cases of nail and toenail fungus.
Apply a small amount of lavender oil to the infected nails before going to bed and allow it soak in while you sleep. To prevent the oil from rubbing off, you may cover the feet with a pair of woolen socks.
You should ensure that the socks you are using are not made from synthetic fibers, as this will aggravate the infection. It is my recommendation to continue with such topical treatments for around several weeks even after the infection has subsided. Keep in mind, a healthy looking toenail might still carry the traces of fungus within it.
 

How to use Lavender essential oil for nail fungus?

While lavender is one of the best oils for nail / toenail fungus, I would recommend using the mix of lavender and tea tree oil rather than using lavender alone if you are looking for quick and sustainable relief.
Here is a step-by-step guide in how to use the combo of lavender/tea tree for nail and toenail fungus:
When fungus attacks, the nail produces a damp hideout for it to grow. Wash your hands / feet thoroughly and clip away the nail as much as possible and leave the edges rounded to make sure they don’t catch on carpet or clothing (metal tools used to trim the infected nails need to be sterilized and air-dried before being used for the procedure).
Wash the toenail area carefully and allow it to air dry.
Drip one to two drops of the blend of tea tree and lavender oils over the affected nail bed every evening and morning.
Repeat the above procedure daily for at least 4-6 weeks.
 
5. Clove Oil
Because of the presence of Eugenol, the essential oil of clove is a potent antiseptic and antifungal agent. In addition, if you are experiencing pain due to the toenail fungus, then clove is the best oil to go with.
Here is an essential oil recipe for toenail fungus relief using clove oil as its main ingredient:
Ingredients
Coconut or Olive oil: 1 tsp
Clove oil: 6-8 drops
Procedure
Mix the clove and coconut oil well and use the blend straight over your toenails. In case your skin around nails is sensitive or broken, you can dilute the blend further, i.e. use 2 tsp instead. Follow the same procedure 2-3 times in a day.
 
6. Cinnamon Oil
Cinnamon oil is another essential oil with antifungal properties that can be used for the treatment of toenail fungus.
Just like clove, Cinnamon is also rich in Eugenol and in addition, it is extremely effective against candida albicans bacteria, which is one of the many factors behind toenail fungus. The best part about the essential oil of cinnamon is that you can use it both topically and internally.
Here is how to use Cinnamon essential oil for best possible relief in nail and toenail fungus
 

Topical application

To start off, clean your toenail. Apply undiluted cinnamon essential oil with a cotton ball to the affected nails at least two times in a day. In case the nails have thickened, clip and file them appropriately before the procedure.
If you have sensitive or broken skin then it is better to dilute cinnamon oil in a carrier oil (4-6 drops in 1 tsp carrier oil). However, if you can bear the tingle of the undiluted cinnamon oil then it is better to use it directly without any dilution.
 
Cinnamon foot soak
Add 1-2 tsp of cinnamon oil in a hot water bath and dip your feet in this blend for around twenty minutes. If you want, you may also add Epsom salt to this mix. Pat your feet dry after the procedure is complete.
Repeat the same procedure at least once daily.
 
Oral consumption – Cinnamon Tea
Ingredients
Cinnamon powder: 1 tsp (or 1 cinnamon stick)
Black tea: 1 tea bag
Honey (optional): 1 tsp
Water: 1 cup
Procedure
Put the cinnamon powder (or cinnamon stick) in a pot and pour boiling water over it. Allow it to steep for roughly 5-7 minutes before straining. Add the tea bag and steep for 2-3 minutes. You can add honey to this mix as per your choice if the tea is too bitter for you to relish. Drink this tea at least 2 times per day.
 
Precaution: Breastfeeding and pregnant women should avoid taking cinnamon.
 
7. Thyme
Thyme has been used since the times of ancient Egyptians for its antibacterial properties. While being a potent anti-fungal, its primary component thymol prevents the development of candida which ultimately helps the body to fight off nail and toenail fungus.
When it comes to obtaining quick relief in conditions like toenail fungus, you can consider thyme essential oil as good a treatment as over-the-counter medication.
Here is how to use the essential oil of Thyme for best relief in nail and toenail fungus
Topical application
You can use thyme directly on your toenails. The oil will be directly absorbed into the area where it is needed. If your nails are thickened, then clip and file them down. This makes the absorption more effective.
If the oil is irritating your skin, consider diluting the oil in carrier oils such as olive, almond or sunflower.
 
Foot bath
Fill a container with lukewarm water and add in Epsom salt and 8-10 drops of Thyme essential oil. Soak in for about 20 minutes at a time.
 

2 Essential Oil Recipes To Get Rid Of Toenail Fungus

Ingredients
12 drops Clove EO
10 drops Oregano EO
5 drops Orange EO
7 drops Thyme EO
3 drops Rosemary EO
Choice of carrier Oil – 2oz. (60ml)
Directions
This is the most effective topical blend for any type of fungal infection. To prepare it, simply mix all the above essential oil in a glass container. Apply just two to three drops of the resulting blend on the infected toenails twice a day.
 
Recipe 2: Disinfecting Cottonball Compress for Toenail Fungus
Ingredients
5 drops Tea Tree EO
3 drops Cinnamon EO
Cotton balls
Directions
Mix the 2 essential oils and dip a couple cotton balls in the resulting blend. You can dilute the blend in a tsp of carrier oil if you have sensitive skin. Once the cotton balls soak in the oils, clean the nails and then apply the cotton on the infected nails. Let the cotton ball compress sit for about half an hour before removing it and washing your feet.
 

Few Tips On Using Essential Oils For Nail & Toenail Fungus

Make use of a dropper to apply oil on nails and between toes.
Allow the oil to soak in for at least 30-45 mins.
Some essential oils could be too strong for people with sensitive skin, so if this is the case, dilute the essential oil in a carrier such as olive or almond oil before application.
If you are unsure about using essential oils, conduct a patch test beforehand.
