Teatrees Tips for Essential Oils

Teatrees Tips

Essential oils are more than just aromatherapy. Some essential oils are edible and can in fact have medicinal benefits when ingested. (Note: Please keep in mind that essential oils should not be used as a substitute for medical treatment and you may wish to consult a medical doctor before using.)Essential oils should never be taken undiluted and only pure, organic, unadulterated oils from a reliable source should ever be used. Essential oils should only be added to a glass, porcelain, or stainless steel container as they will react with plastic or other materials.

* Peppermint is not only a good breath freshener, but can also aid indigestion and upset stomach. By adding just one or two drops in water you can make a healthy and refreshing tea. Because essential oils do not mix in water, you must continually shake or mix before sipping.

* Trying to find some different ideas for that July 4th BBQ? How about Orange essential oil added to your seafood or chicken.  Just add a few drops to some olive oil or butter and marinate your food in this for a few hours, add some fresh thyme or dill and you’ve got a tasty meal on the grill. Again, make sure you use a glass or porcelain dish to marinate your food in.

* Nothing tastes better than fresh lemonade, but try bumping it up with one or two drops of  Lemon oil. Remember, essential oils are very concentrated so a little goes a long way. Experiment with the amounts but start off with the minimum of one or two drops in a whole pitcher (glass of course!)
