Antibiotic AlternativesEssential Oils
Essential oils, the most potent substances distilled from plants, have been rubbed and inhaled for healings since ancient times. Time has proven their safety and efficacy.
Essential oils that are steamed or rubbed on the skin at key circulatory points can work to stop infections without antibiotic use.
How Do They Do It?
Essential oils kill on contact bacteria and viruses and other infective agents, including the Lyme bacteria.
Essential oils oxygenate the blood, nourishing tissues.
Essential oils will not disrupt your natural gut flora and cause canadida overgrowth as will antibiotics.
Essential oils are safe to use with children or the elderly.
Note: if a red, hot skin rash develops, discontinue use at once. If you have “sensitive skin”, consider diluting the pure essential oil with olive or sesame oil 50:50.
How to Use Essential Oils
The perfusion technique is to drop 5 drops of essential oil on the right inner wrist and rub onto the left inner elbow. Then drop 5 drops on the left inner wrist and rub on the right inner elbow. Repeat with 5 drops rubbed behind each knee. You may repeat the perfusion technique 1-2 times per day.
To steam, bring to a rolling boil, a non-metallic pot containing 2 inches of non-chlorinated water. Remove pot from heat source, add 5-10 drops essential oil mix and breathe in deeply with bath towel over your head making a tent to trap steam. Breathe for 5-10 minutes or until steam gives out. Beware: the first breath has strong oil content so take small breaths at first and deepen as steam calms down.
