First Aid Essential Oil Blend
Help your body heal itself with our First Aid Essential Oil Blend. First Aid is a powerful healing blend of Rosemary, Tea Tree, Clove Bud, and Helichrysum italicum essential oils. It offers a clean, crisp, calming aroma that’s herbal, earthy, and slightly warming.
Cuts, bruises, scrapes, and burns are a part of life. When you need first aid, this essential oil blend offers natural healing benefits to promote faster recovery time. It’s antimicrobial and antiseptic, which means it can help neutralize harmful bacteria that causes infections. This blend also reduces the appearance of scars as you heal.
Thanks to the Rosemary oil in this blend, First Aid is also a great essential oil blend for hair. Apply a few drops in a carrier oil onto the scalp, or add to your daily conditioner, then massage along the roots of your hair to stimulate new follicles and promote thicker, fuller hair.
Use First Aid topically with your preferred carrier oil, or add it to a personal diffuser to fill your space with a bright medicinal scent that helps lower your stress levels and promotes cognitive health. You can also add a few drops to a warm bath to soak away sore muscles.

First Aid Essential Oil Blend FAQ
Can I use essential oils for injuries?
Yes, many essential oils provide medicinal benefits that help heal injuries and prevent infection. Essential oils like our First Aid blend are antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic, which means they can help cleanse wounds and promote faster healing. You can also use essential oils for anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects to relieve muscle pain.
Is First Aid essential oil safe to use on open wounds?
Yes. However, this essential oil blend must first diluted in a carrier oil like Fractionated Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, or Jojoba Oil. We also advise patch testing on uninjured skin before applying to cuts or sores. After diluting and patch testing, apply a small amount to minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. The essential oils in this blend will help sanitize your wounds, prevent infection, and promote faster healing. The blend may sting slightly. However, if serious irritation or allergic reaction occurs – or if your injuries worsen – discontinue use immediately.
Do essential oils help you heal faster?
Yes! Although research is still limited and ongoing, some medical studies demonstrate that using essential oils will help your body heal faster after injury or surgery. They may also help prevent infection due to their antimicrobial properties. Additionally, it’s well documented that chronic stress slows the body’s ability to heal itself. By using essential oils to lower your anxiety levels and release your nervous system from fight-or-flight mode, you can allow your cells to rejuvenate more quickly.
What are some other uses for First Aid essential oil blend?
In addition to first aid, you can use this blend as an essential oil for fatigue, stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Try diffusing First Aid when you feel overwhelmed or have difficulty focusing. The crisp, herbal aroma of this essential oil blend will help reduce brain fog and promote clearer focus.
