Essential Oils and Extracts for Preppers

Consider homeopathic products for preppers! Your body is your temple and you can
heal naturally in a variety of ways, including
tinctures of essential oils and extracts.
With this happy thought, we've compiled a list of oils and extracts* for preppers to

Aromatherapy, Essential Oils and Extracts:
For the most part, essential oils are applied topically or are dabbed at sensitive
points of the body for the aroma. We do NOT recommend the ingestion of essential
oils, even though they may be specified as "food grade." If ingested improperly, one
could sustain significant damage to the body.

Extracts for preppers
These ancient elixirs (tincture extracts, essential oils and homeopathic remedies)
have merit in a modern world. Just read the Amazon reviews and you'll understand
their importance to preppers:

#1: Sambucus (Black Elderberry Syrup).
Sambucus original Black Elderberry Syrup, by Nature's Way, is a formula that
combines standardized, Bio-Certified black elderberry extract and natural raspberry
flavor in a base of fructose, purified water, vegetable-source glycerin and citric acid.  
It's virologist tested as a natural and effective way to fight viral infections. Each
serving provides 6,400 mg of premium cultivar berries.

  • Elderberry extract: Elderberry extract is an immune enhancing substance
    with anti-viral qualities, making it a natural choice for pandemic
    preparedness. This homeopathic solution for colds, all types of viral infection,
    and even chronic lung conditions. The berries, which are highly nutritious, help
    patients with anemia as well. They are slightly laxative.

#2: Peppermint Oil (capsules or topical oil).
Revitalizing, invigorating and cooling when applied topically as aromatherapy,
peppermint oil also has medicinal purposes, such as combating stomach ailments,
helping bruises heal more rapidly and soothing sore joints Try also peppermint oil
capsules to help with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Avoid use during pregnancy!

#3: Thieves Oil.
Thieves oil is an essential oil, not an extract. For dietary, aromatic, or topical use,
Thieves Oil by Young Living Essential Oils was tested at Weber State University,
Ogden, Utah, and found to be effective against airborne bacteria! During the 15th-
century plague, thieves used an oil of cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics to
protect themselves while robbing plague victims. In the Survival Medicine Handbook:
A Guide for When Help is Not on the Way by Joseph Alton M.D. and Amy Alton ARNP,
they recommend stocking Thieves Oil! (Page 78.) for upper respiratory infections.

  • Compare Thieves Oil with Germ Fighter, pictured at the bottom of the page.

#4: Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex.  
Fresh green black walnut wormwood complex comes highly recommended by The
Patriot Nurse because it treats parasites. This powerful extract, derived from the
hulls of green black walnuts, is  a centuries old herbal tonic to promote healthy
microbial activity.

#5: Olive Leaf Extract.
Olive leaf extract long has been a method to fight colds and flu, and why not? Olive
Leaf extract includes oleuropein, a bitter glycoside and key constituent identified for
therapeutic benefit of cleansing, as a fungal fighting herbal. Oleuropein has been
credited with strengthening the immune system. Perhaps it can slow aging or lower
blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol too!

#6: Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia).
Culled from the leaves of a tree (Melaleuca alternifolia), native to Australia, Tea Tree
Oil is a powerful immune stimulant, that can help fight bacteria, and viruses. The
indigenous people of Australia have used tea tree oil as a treatment of fever, and
wounds. Applied topically, it's a natural antiseptic that can help fight nail fungi and
acne. The indigenous people did make a tea from the leaves; however do NOT
ingest the oil as
Tea Tree Oil can cause extreme and severe vomiting. While
powerful, tea tree oil comes with much caution.

#7: St. John's Wort Herbal Supplement (Hypericum performatum).
Also called Hypericum, St. John's Wort, is a remedy for injuries to the nerves and has
been used for both mental and menstrual disorders, as well as a treatment for
stomach ulcers, and to heal burns. Made from fresh (undried) flowering and budding
tops of hypericum perforatum plants, St. John's Wort combats depression quite well.
At the bottom of the page, you'll find St. John's Wort in an organic compound.

#8 Helichrysum Gymnocephalum Essential Oil (rambiazina)
In aromatherapy, Helichrysum Gymnocephalum Essential Oil, pictured at the bottom
of the page by Nature's Kiss, may provide benefits for rheumatism arthritis, herpes
virus, hematoma, varicose ulcers, dermatitis, gingivitis, gout, bronchitis and goiter.*
Applied topically, it may provide quick healing of scar tissue.

#9: Oil of Oregano.
Spicy and invigorating, Oil of Oregano has been used to support digestive,
respiratory and joint health. Oil of Oregano has anti-viral properties known to enter
the bloodstream to attack viruses. It's amazing and natural! An active ingredient in
Oil of Oregano is carvacrol, which may provide
support to the immune system and
also inhibits the growth of bacteria.

#10: Clove Essential Oil.
A wonderful addition to your dental medic kit. The warm, pungent oils of clove have
served historically for digestive, dental and skin health. Applied topically, cloves help
numb to ease dental pain. Read more about
Clove Essential Oil as an antibiotic.

#11. Witch Hazel.
Witch Hazel has so many uses for preppers. Witch Hazel promotes healthy veins,
helps with hemorrhoids, and is an astringent to help soothe skin, vanquish
blemishes, and relieve bug bites.

A tincture is a medicine made by dissolving an extract or drug in alcohol. This is a
way of concentrating herbal extracts. The idea is to draw out the essential
compounds of plants.

    pictured at the bottom right of the page, is effective  for the removal of dried
