    I’m sharing this interesting info on essential oils: (would you add more to this list?)

    Essential oils are believed to have beneficial effects on the mind, body, and spirit. Many essential oils are used to treat specific ailments or complaints.

    Like herbs and minerals, the FDA does not regulate essential oils. Most medical doctors don’t consider them a valid treatment for what ails you, but those who use them are believers. But check with your doctor first. If you have allergies or anaphylaxis, you’ll probably want to avoid most essential oils. By and large, though, they’re worth a try.

    Below is a list of essential oils that might help to ease symptoms of various conditions.

    For Pain:  Spike lavender, sweet marjoram, lavender, petitgrain, Roman and German chamomile, clary sage, lemongrass, helichrysum, peppermint, ginger, black pepper.

    For Stress:  Rose otto, frankincense, clary sage, sweet orange, bergamot, grapefruit, ylang ylang, sandalwood, neroli, sweet marjoram, petitgrain, mandarin, lavender, rose geranium, tangerine, jasmine.

    For Sleep:  Lavender, neroli, jasmine, marjoram, Roman chamomile.

    For Sense of Well-Being:  Frankincense, lavender, rose, mandarin, neroli, helichrysum.

    For Headaches:  Lavender, peppermint, marjoram, Roman chamomile.

    For Circulation:  Rosemary, ginger, black pepper, peppermint, lemongrass, rose geranium.

    Early research shows more possible benefits for essential oils in these areas: 

    For Antioxidant Properties:  Lavender.

    For Anticancer Properties: Lemongrass, thyme.

    For Anti-inflammatory Properties: Myrrh, frankincense.

    For Nausea: Peppermint, spearmint.

    For  Hormone Regulation: Thyme, coconut.

    For Brain Function and Nerve: Coconut.

    I have heard Copaiba is supposed to help tremors.  I do not have tremors, but do have copaiba and I don’t see any difference in my symptoms.  I apply to my neck and temples.
