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 hoard.

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.

#4: Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood Complex.

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

oil comes with much caution.

support to the immune
system and also inhibits the growth of bacteria.

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

promotes healthy veins, helps with hemorrhoids, and is an
astringent to help soothe skin, vanquish blemishes, and relieve
bug bites.

Tinctures
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.

make an herbal tincture at WikiHow.
