“Dizzy from Ringgold” Asks Abby:
I have a friend with vertigo and my Mom has dealt with vertigo off and on for a year. I don really understand it and would like to know if there are any essential oils to help?
For those unaware of what vertigo is, it is a feeling of dizziness; a confused or disoriented feeling.
I have never personally dealt with vertigo myself, nor do I have any successful testimonies (of people I know) to offer you.
I love researching about an issue though and I would LOVE for you to try this and then give our group some feedback.
My research led me to 4 oils that I would try if I were suffering with vertigo:
Frankincense– often noted as the Holy oil. In the Middle East, this oil has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. Frankincense was valued more than gold during the ancient times.
Frankincense can be used for infections, skin issues, combat stress, boost our immune system, ease sore throats and coughs.
This is one of those oils that it never hurts to use with any issue!
I would rub this behind my ears.
Melrose– is a blend of Rosemary, Tea Tree, Clove, and Niaouli. This blend has strong antiseptic properities to cleanse and disinfect cuts, scrapes, burns, etc. These oils can help regenerate and reduce inflammation. It can also be diffused to dispel stinky odors and to purify the air.
We use Melrose when treating sickness, skin issues, bladder/urinary issues, and so much more.
This was actually a blend that I would have never thought up on my own, but was recommended while doing my research.
I would rub this behind my ears.
Valor– is a blend of fractionated coconut oil, Spruce, Rosewood, Frankincense, & Blue Tansy. It can balance energies, and promote courage, & confidence.
Valor is called chiropractic in a bottle! It has been noted to help with dizziness before, clenching your jaw, snoring, stress, and sour moods.
This oil can also help with confusion.
Helichrysum— has many different medical properties. In the Essential Oil Pocket Reference, it says it is “anti-” coagulant, anesthetic, spasmodic, viral; it is a liver protectant/detoxifier/stimulant, chelates chemicals and toxins and regenerates nerves.
This oil is used for many things! It can help with STDs, hypertension, liver issues, blood issues, circulatory issues, skin issues, and more!
If I suffered from vertigo, I would apply 1 drop of Valor to my wrists, and 1 drop each of Frankincense, Melrose, and Helichrysum behind my ears and rub in in until the feeling subside.
If you struggle with vertigo, I would LOVE for you to give these suggestions a try, and then give me some feedback. The Members Only Page is a great place to share your success stories!
I all love to see how folks are using their oils successfully and then, when someone else searches for the same issue, they are able to find your thread and get some great info.
Thanks for reading!
