5 Uses for Violet Oil
Do you have violets planted in your gardens? Or maybe you just have wild violets that are blooming in your yard? Did you know that violets are used as something other than just being a pretty flower? They are! Violets are turned into something called Violet Oil, or some even call it Violet Essential Oil. Violet Oil has many uses that have been used through out history including therapeutic uses for pain, headaches, as an expectorant, insomnia, stress and more.
One of the most common ways to use Violet Oil is by inhaling it. This can be done by either using an oil diffuser or placing a few drops of Violet Oil into pot with some water and heating it on the stove.
Here are five great uses for Violet Oil:
Pain Reliever: Apply 4-5 drops to a moist warm compress and place over the aching muscle or joint. Reapply as needed.
Inflammation: Massage a few drops into the inflamed area. Repeat 3-4 times a day as needed.
Headache: Put a few drops in an oil diffuser or burner and have a seat near it. You can also use a pot of boiling water with a few drops of violet oil in it. Relax and breath normal and the headache will ease up.
Insomnia: Place a few drops in your oil diffuser and have it on in the room when you sleep.
Bee Stings: Mix 1 drop violet oil and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Soak a small cloth or cotton ball in the mixture. Then place on bee sting until pain subsides.
Note: None of this is meant as medical advice. I am not a doctor, and do not play one on the internet. Please consult a physician if you have any questions about using essential oils so your doctor can better explain to you the benefits, possible side effects, and any warnings about essential oils.
