Healing From a Broken Bone

Apr 21st 2021

Mary Asks: Comment: I broke my leg, had surgery and have bruising and swelling in ankle and foot. Was wondering if Circulation and Lymph Glow or Lymph and Skin Restoration help with the healing? I have been using Body Regenerator for pain and it works wonderfully. Thanks for you time. Dr. Streicher Answers: Dear Mary, In your situation, Body Regenerator will be most helpful. You can upgrade Body Regenerator by adding 3 - 5% helichrysum. You can also alternate between Body Regenerator and Circulation and Lymph Glow. Best Wishes for Healing, Christoph Streicher, Ph.D. …

Treating 44-Days of Sore Throat

Apr 21st 2021

Marie Asks: I have had what feels like a sore throat with post-nasal drip since Christmas Day. Have used several oils like Invincible Immunity, Frankincense, hyssop, etc and have been to the MD 2x - its not strep. It seems as if my body is just holding onto a viral infection. Any recommendation to support my immune system? BTW, I generally rarely get colds, viruses, etc. Thanks Dr. Streicher Answers: Dear Marie, After such a long time it is unlikely that it is still a virus. If not strep it may be another bacteria. I recommend inhalation the old-fashioned way; a pot with ver …

Using Tri-Essences on Skin

Apr 21st 2021

Jan S. Asks: Hello, I recently purchased Ecstatic Body for Women, not realizing it is consumed. Can it also be used in a small amount on skin? I thought it was for the scent and could be used on skin. I do not want to drink. How can I reuse the cotton pads for the Amrita Ball Diffuser? Just use again and again? Can they be cleaned/refreshed? Thanks, Jan Dr. Streicher Answers: Dear Jan, You can apply all Tri-Essences to the skin, but you need to mix them with an unscented lotion (10% Tri-Essence, 90% lotion), otherwise the skin will not absorb them You can use t …

Eczema Help for 1-Year-Old

Apr 21st 2021

Meghan D. Asks: I am looking for something that would be safe to use on my 1 year old to help his eczema. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. Dr. Streicher Answers: Dear Meghan, Roman chamomile, neroli, iris, and helichrysum are very mild and safe to use in a 0.5% dilution in jojoba on a 1-year-old. Use one at a time to determine which one works best. In addition, I suggest seriously look into possible causes for the eczema. They are not eliminated by the essential oils. Kind Regards, Christoph Streicher, Ph.D. Original Published: 2015-01-09 / L …

Essential Oils and Young Children

Apr 21st 2021

Megan Asks: Hello, I am very new to essential oils. I am seeking out alternatives to treating my children when they have minor ailments. They have a lot of colds and night time coughing. They are ages 5,3, and 4 months. Is it safe to diffuse a respiratory blend? Thanks! Dr. Streicher Answers Hello Megan, At this age I would use only very mild oils, and it is very important not to overdo it. In particular with the nebulizer diffuser, otherwise the best diffuser, it can be overdone. Eucalyptus radiata and Eucalyptus staigeriana are the mildest eucalyptuses. You can also use Spi …

Cold Storage for Essential Oils

Apr 21st 2021

Barbe Jo Asks: Do you recommend keeping organic rose otto essential oil in the refrigerator? Dr. Streicher Answers: Dear Barbe Jo, As long as you use your essential oils within a reasonable amount of time, there is no need to put them into the fridge. Rose oil is not among the faster deteriorating oils; citrus and conifers are. But if you use up a bottle only over many months, like you may do with rose oil because it is so expensive, you will end up with little essential oil and a lot of air in the bottle. If you keep that longer it is good to put it into the fridge, because t …

Apr 21st 2021

Barbe Jo Asks: I have purchased your certified organic rose otto and your certified organic sandalwood Tamil Nadu essential oil. I have made a facial serum using both in a base of jojoba. Is this a blend that is tri-doshic? I know it is great for pitta skin. If not tri-doshic, what essential oils would I need to add to the two to make a serum for Vata and one for Kapha? Dr. Streicher Answers: Dear Barbe Jo, This is a good formula for pitta skin, it is also fine for vata skin. It does no harm for kapha skin. But the kapha skin (oily, acne) is the only skin which needs more stimula …
