How to make your own Essential Oil First Aid Kits
We usually don’t have a whole lot of space inside of a first aid kit to store our bandages, let alone our essential oils. We have to be wise in our choices as to which oils are going to occupy that valuable space. Choosing essential oils with the most therapeutic effects and with the strongest actions is imperative since we will be using our essential oil first aid kits for emergency situations.
Once you have your staples, you then start to add essential oils tailored to the special needs of what you are using the first aid kit for. We focused on five types of first aid kits in this recording of the Essential Oil First Aid Kit Teleseminar. Those kits are for:
You have to think of every possible thing you will encounter when choosing the right essential oils for your first aid kits. Then you choose one or two bottles of essential oil that will cover those possibilities. Essential oil blends are perfect for this as you will hear in the recording. I have designed this webpage to follow along with the recording. You can print this page for your records if you would like. For additional convenience, I have posted the minute and second where you can move the cursor in the recording to hear the specific kit we are discussing. I shared several specific scary stories that are testimonies of how powerful Young Living essential oils are in emergency situations and some involve life or death circumstances. My intention is to give you the confidence to use your Young Living essential oils in emergency situations. Notice what I said, I said YOUNG LIVING essential oils. This webpage, these notes, and this teleseminar do not apply to any other company, and I warn you of how dangerous it is to use inferior oils.
Go ahead and hit “play” because the notes begin here.

Choose from this list to tailor oils for your vacation: (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 4:55 to hear this portion of the teleseminar.)
*Pressurization of ears when flying-helichrysum.
*Motion sickness –Peppermint or Ginger.
*Capsules- for any oil that you will need to swallow several drops of.
*Temperature/Climate changes-Peppermint on back of neck to cool you down or Ginger on feet to warm you up.
*Stomach ailments- DiGize for parasites, upset tummy, gas, bloating, food poisoning and exposure to MSG or Aspertame. For food poisoning or stomach viruses, swallow 10 drops in a capsule every ten minutes. If you can’t swallow, put five drops under the tongue where the blood stream will deliver it to the rest of your body.
Check out how Carrie used DiGize in a third world country on a mission trip. Thankfully they had DiGize so they could continue on with their work instead of wasting time being sick.
*Lavender for sunscreens or burns. Like when bump their leg on exhaust pipe.
*Insect repellent and bug bite comfort- if don’t use Purification to prevent bug bites, use it after you are bitten to soothe the bite. Put Purification in a travel diffuser and set it outside on the table you are eating on to repel bugs. Put several drops above and below the area where stung by bees, wasps or anything that flies.
*Spider bites- put several drops of Thieves on the bite every ten minutes.
*Vetiver & Valarian- put 10 drops of each into a capsule for deep, deep pain like for serious accidents.
*Stop Bleeding- Helichrysum or Cistus. Just keep dropping it in the wound as often as needed . How many drops depends on the size of hole.
*Thieves to prevent getting sick from any new allergen or virus or bacteria exposed to. Use for splinters.
*bottle of V-6 for diluting essential oils.

Here is the perfect example of having oils on hand and knowing how to use them. Danny was thrown from his 18 Wheeler truck so hard that his spine came out of his buttocks and tore a big hole in his back. He had multiple surgeries to save his life. He was told that he would be in the hospital for many months, but because of his wife’s knowledge of essential oils and her dedicated application of them, Danny was able to return back to work 10 months after the accident. Check out what Danny’s favorites were for pain and hear what oils they used to restore Danny whole again. Click on the video below to watch this amazing story.
Animal Scents Ointment
Thieves Hand Sanitizer
Choose from this list to tailor oils for your child’s camp: (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 22:42 to hear this section of the teleseminar.)
Think of everything they will be exposed to. EVERYTHING. Keep in fanny pack. Kids tend to leave everything back in their tent or cabin but are less likely to leave their oils back at camp if you pack everything in a fanny pack.
*Sunscreen-It’s waterproof so it stays on in the lake or pool. 40 drops of lavender to every ounce of pure water.
*Heat exhaustion- put 10 drops of peppermint into a 36-40 ounce spray bottle and let them spray themselves throughout the day. Avoid the eyes
*Bug spray-if they are using lavender for sunscreen or peppermint to keep cool, these oils act as bug spray as well.
*Insect bites- same as vacations
*Spider bites-same as vacations
*Tick removal- put one drop of peppermint on that bad boy and watch him squirm. No need for matches or tweezers.
*Poison ivy-use the bottle of peppermint they used to keep cool.
*Splinters-Thieves again to remove splinters. Kids just naturally grab Thieves for anything.
*Melrose and Animal Scents Ointment- all boo boos. My kids keep their Animal Scents Ointment in an old Wolfberry Eye Cream jar.
*Frankincense-when in doubt, use frankincense for anything and everything listed above.

Essential Oil Diaper Bag First Aid Kit
Choose from this list to tailor oils for your child’s diaper bag: (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 35:35 to listen to this section of the teleseminar.)
This kit is very small because it is always accompanied by the family’s car or home kit.
*Diaper rash-lavender same recipe as sunscreen. 40 drops of lavender in one ounce of pure water.
*DiGize constipation- pull knees up to chest to create a straight line where the colon can get fecal matter out.
*Brain Power- for chemical exposure while in public. Just never know what they are breathing in while their tiny little brains are developing that can cause problems later on.
Babies and some toddlers can’t tell you why or where they are hurting. You have to cover all your bases and apply everything on them.
Brain Power – My daughter, Acelyn’s seizure story. (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 37:48 to hear this story.)
Keep between the two front seats; you are the driver and if trapped in the car at the time of the accident, you need to be able to reach your oils. (Read a personal example of how this mom was able to apply essential oils right away when caught in a car accident.
Your first aid kit at home should always be kept in the bathroom where you would take shelter for a tornado or such storm. It must be a case, kit or box that can easily be transported to the yard or upstairs or wherever your loved one is who had the accident.
These kits are loaded with extra bottles of everything. They must have enough oils to help more than one person. In serious situations like Dr. Young had with Josef’, he needed more than one bottle of helichrysum. In situations where I had a son with a broken nose just 10 days after my daughter had a concussion, you never want your oils to get low. If you can only keep one bottle of anything, make sure it is a full bottle and not a partial bottle. You need enough oil to sustain the healing for several days.
Your emergency oils should be kept separate from your everyday use oils. You never want your family to be in reach of oils where they can deplete your emergency stash leaving you in a predicament where you don’t have enough of what you need in time of an emergency.
STORY- Oils in car- I should have had oils with me in the water theme park, but if I didn’t I could have gone to the car to get them for Acelyn’s concussion, instead I went home and oiled her down first before I went to hospital. (Move your cursor to minute 44:49 to hear this story.)

Multiple Uses of Your Essential Oil Blends:
After we concluded tailoring first aid kits, we moved on to discussing the multiple uses of four of the staple essential oils. We purposely packed these three oils because they can be used for minor injuries or to deliver necessary oxygen to the brain after it has been injured. Those three oils are DiGize, Trauma Life, Aroma Life and Thieves.
Multiple uses of DiGize: (Move the cursor on your audio player to minute 56:40 to hear this section of the teleseminar.)
* Contains ginger which is good for for rheumatism and arthritis. It has lemongrass in it which is good for ligaments.
*Story of how I accidentally helped a woman’s knee pain with DiGize (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 57:02 to hear this story.)
* DiGize also has Tarragon and Peppermint which can be used for parasites.
Muliple Uses of Brain Power: (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 59:17 to hear this section of the teleseminar.)
*This oil blend has several oils in it which are high in sesquiterpenes. Ses-qui-ter-penes raise oxygen levels in tissue and oxygen is necessary for repairing brain injuries. So use Brain Power for everything brain related in addition to Helichrysum or Frankincense.
*I used this (the oils found in this blend) for my daughter’s seizures.
*ADD children like this to settle the brain while traveling for long periods in the car.
Multiple Uses of Trauma Life : (Move the cursor on the audio player to minute 59:36 to hear this section of the teleseminar).

How to take care of your essential oils: (Minute 71:59 of the teleseminar.)
I like to keep my kits in soft-back brief cases or laptop cases to pad my oil bottles.
All your oils should be face up so you can easily see the names of the oils.
Open all your bottles before you put them in the case so that the seal is broken. Remove the white ring that can sometimes cause delays when trying to open the bottles during emergency situations.
Oils can not tolerate temperature extremes. When you aren’t in your car, bring your oils in the house.
The Young Living essential oils listed for this teleseminar are not an all inclusive list. They only offer a baseline for you so you can use your common sense to build a list from. As I said, this teleseminar discusses Young Living therapeutic-grade oils because they contain all the healing compounds as they are found in nature. I warn you against using inferior oils from companies who mainly sell perfumes and flavorings.
