Basil helps increase lactation, relaxes muscles and fights depression. It is great for providing insect sting relief, helps with ear infections, can be used as a decongestant, and helps with gas.
Oregano is a super strong antibiotic, and combats against any bacterial, viral infection or parasites. It also helps with constipation. Warning: this is a hot oil- dilute with a carrier oil to apply topically!
9. Roman Chamomile
Roman Chamomile aids in relaxation, helps sleep, and gives tension headache relief. It’s great for skin conditions (dry, chapped or irritated), teething relief, diaper rashes, and relieves stiff joints and tired muscles.
10. Immunity blend
Many oil companies make their own immunity blends (the most popular are OnGuard and Thieves) and they provide excellent daily immune support when applied on bottoms of feet. They also give sore throat relief, purify surfaces (think: bathroom!) or atmosphere by diffusing. Immunity Blends are amazing mold killers, and great to make your own toothpaste or laundry detergent.
