Millions of Americans suffer from migraine headaches, which are so painful that they can rob you of quality of life. Migraine symptoms include a pounding headache, nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity. Thankfully, there is a natural solution for migraine sufferers in essential oils, which work to relieve
migraine pain in three key ways.
First, the most common trigger of migraine headaches is stress. Inhaling essential oils triggers a positive emotional and physical response by stimulating your body's limbic (emotional) and endocrine (hormonal) systems. For example, when you inhale Lavender & Helichrysum essential oils, they immediately calm your nervous system and relax your muscles. Thus, essential oils can also play a major role in migraine avoidance. When you feel a stressful emotional response, open the little bottle and inhale deeply. You will feel an immediate change.
Second, many essential oils have powerful pain relieving properties.
Peppermint essential oil, for example, has been shown to block channels that transmit pain signals – without the side effects of drugs! The best way to get this result near the location of the migraine is to inhale deeply or rub the diluted oil on the site of the most intense pain.
Third, anyone who has experienced a migraine will tell you that they can almost feel the swelling of the blood cells in their brain. Inflammation is both a cause and symptom of migraines.
Essential oils, like Helichrysum, contain the most powerful anti-inflammatories known to man --attacking the swelling deep within our tissues at the site of the pain. Studies show that Helichrysum essential oils causes inflammatory enzyme inhibition, free-radical scavenging activity and corticoid-like effects.
Josiah’s Oil’s Organic Migraine Relief combines the healing power of these oils
(Lavender, Helichrysum & Peppermint) along with a golden jojoba oil for deep
penetration and fast migraine relief. The bottle is small and discrete.
A must-have for migraine sufferers!

Back to school does not need to mean back to colds, flu
and other viruses! We all have heard that
the overuse of antibiotics have raised several strains of bacteria resistant to them. We know that hospitals are constantly fighting a losing a battle against
super-bugs like MRSA. Now researchers
have discovered that essential oils - like cinnamon – kill
bacteria –even those strains that have become resistant to
antibiotics. In fact, cinnamon essential oil has been studied to be one of the most powerful antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal & antimicrobial tools we have. Cinnamon essential oil’s powerful properties so impressed researchers that some are recommending a 10% cinnamon oil solution be used as an alternative to several different kinds of antiseptics used in hospitals.*
In the same way, you can protect your home and family from viruses and bacteria with cinnamon and other powerful antimicrobial essential oils. Another benefit is that these essential oils are healing to the lungs. They are also absorbed by the skin and have powerful antioxidant and immune boosting properties.

(*study published in the Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, a multinational team of surgeons from Australia, Germany, and the UK, tested the antimicrobial efficacy of a
range of essential oils against several strains of bacteria and Candida which
commonly cause hospital acquired infections. They were especially concerned with
finding oils effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) which has become a major problem in hospitals and can cause severe soft
tissue and bone infections.)
Toenail fungus is also called as Onychomycosis.
It is a very common fungal infection. The nails affected by this infection appear cloudy and also grow thicker. Infected nails might also start to crumble and get separated from the nail bed. It can be a painful and embarrassing condition.
One need not live with this discomfort! Two of the most common cures for toenail fungi are oregano & tea tree oils.
Oregano contains carvacrol, which is believed to be the ingredient that acts actively well against fungi. Oregano also has powerful antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
Tea tree oil, derived from the leaves of the native Australian Melaleuca alternifolia tree contains antiseptic and anti-fungal compounds that are a very effective skin disinfectant.
Tea tree oil contains terpenoids, which have been found to have antiseptic and antifungal activity. The compound terpinen-4-ol is the most abundant and is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil's antimicrobial activity.
Together, these oils pack a powerful punch on fungal infections.
Organic Tea Tree & Oregano oils along with jojoba and grapeseed oils are the sole ingredients in Josiah’s Oils Nail Serum. Our nail serum and be applied 2 to 3 times per day on the infected
I note that there are a few oral prescription drugs can help cure nail fungus but have serious side effects -like liver damage and seizures. They can also be quite costly.
Always check with your doctor and be aware that these oils should never be ingested.
