Choosing to use natural remedies opens so many choices for our health and wellbeing.  These are some of chemical-free favorites and should be in everyone’s medicine cabinet.

For Pain issues and  help with inflammation.

Turmeric capsules

Omega 3 essential fatty acids

Epsom salts(magnesium)

 Doterra Deep Blue and Copaiba essential oils


Sleep issues: to help calm and relax 

Magnesium at bedtime

Serotonin supplement (if not on anti-depressants)

Valerian root herb –very relaxing.

Passion flower herb – calming

Probiotic daily –  serotonin is made in the gut.

Vetiver and lavender on bottom of feet for a racing mind.


Wounds, scraps and burns:

Here’s what you’re going to need:
½ cup of aloe vera juice
• 25 drops lavender essential oil
• 25 drops melaleuca essential oil
• 4oz squeeze bottle

Doterra Lavender essential oil is also great for burns and bug bites

Vitamin D -optimizes healing


Teeth and gums:

Salt is a highly useful home remedy for cavities due to its high levels of anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties. Salt will allow for the pain and inflammation to be reduced.

Doterra Melaleuca essential oil – rub around gums to kill germs

On Guard toothpaste –great tasting and contains clove oil.  Cloves are one of the most vital ingredients in fighting cavities naturally. Due to the high properties of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and analgesic properties, clove can help to soothe any pain caused by the cavity.


Stomach Issues

Activated charcoal – fast and effective to stop diarrhea or food poisoning.

Pb assist by Doterra is enteric coated probiotic.   Therefore, it’s not destroyed in the stomach as many probiotics are.

Digestive enzymes – breakdown the food to prevent reflux and gas.

DigestZen by Doterra –  super fast, rub over abdominal area or throat to stop discomfort.


As you can see, I use essential oils for many health issues and I chose Doterra because they are chemically pure and therapeutic in effect.  Not all products can be taken internally so you need to be very careful to buy only quality products.

Hope you build your natural medicine cabinet and see how powerful and effective holistic choices can be.  I would love to hear your comments and check out my website for more tips for healthy living.
