Using herbs and essential oils at the end of life

Using essential oils and herbs at the end of life.
What does the end of life look like to you?
How do you want to spend the last moments of life?

This is the first part in a series of essential oils and herbs to use in the end of life.

I personally want to be comforted, soothed by the essential oils and herbs that I love and cherish.
There is chamomile tea for agitation and slight nausea, also to help me sleep if it is steeped longer.
There are ginger inhalers or a tincture that is in my cabinet, use that tincture in juice if it seems too strong. It is great for nausea.

Frankincense is great, burn some resin in the burner. Not the charcoal burner, but the brass one with a tealight underneath. Just put a little frankincense on the top. Not the sweet smelling one…it does nauseate me.
I like opopanax and myrrh too, so the mixture is fine.

The lavender vanilla candle is a change and citruses are a favorite…just like the tangerine Yankee candle.
Just remember to only burn something for 30 minutes max, so that it isn’t too overpowering.

After I have sipped my tea and read a passage from the Bible app, let me nap a little.
We can talk later.


The Lord is gracious to the humble.

Proverbs 3:34
