Today I am sharing why I store lavender oil for survival. Here’s the deal, I am not promoting any particular company, but I do feel that I need to store certain essential oils for survival after a disaster or unforeseen emergency. Here is a link on the FDA website on aromatherapy and essential oils. I use several different essential oils for different health benefits, but not to cure a disease. I love essential oils, but today I am going to talk about lavender. I took a C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team) multi-week class and learned a lot of things. I learned how to implement a triage for injured individuals, make splints, use a fire hose to put out a small fire and much more. If the classes are available in your area I highly recommend taking them.

In the classes, we had different professionals each week talk about different critical subjects. The mental health director was my favorite speaker. She talked about how to handle people who may become out of control with fear after a disaster. She explained we need to stay in control and not show fear ourselves or it may ignite extreme situations we could not control. My point is this, we need something to calm people. If some of the people after a disaster do not have the required medications they need I am very worried what will happen. If the pharmacies are closed or the roads are not drivable what can we do as neighbors, friends or family? I will massage some lavender oil on someone’s shoulders if they will let me.

I like buying essential oils because I do not need a prescription and they do comfort and soothe your body, in my opinion. Let’s get started why I store lavender oil. It’s been used for centuries because of its cleaning and healthful properties.

9 Reasons I Store Lavender Oil

    1. Emergency salve: you can rub the oil topically on a minor cut or burn.
    2. Disinfect your living areas to fight germs.
    3. It helps with depression, the smell has a very relaxing, calming effect.
    4. I use it for arthritis, it relieves pain and soreness.
    5. It’s great for bee stings or bug bites, it eliminates the sting feeling.
    6. It helps with anxiety, the aroma is calming.
    7. It helps relieve the pain and soreness from sprains.
    8. It’s fabulous in the diffuser, here again, calming aroma.
    9. It’s a natural antiseptic.

Keep a bottle by the bathtub, talk about heavenly relaxation……life is good with lavender essential oils.

    Just FYI I saw Ted Koppel on PBS yesterday, October 28 speaking about his new book called Lights Out: A Cyberattack, A Nation Unprepared, Surviving the Aftermath .

    To my delightful surprise he speaks of the grid or the infrastructural, and that in his research it seems about 80% likely that it will happen. Now I say this because for the past two years I have been working feverously to be independent of the grid and not fully understanding my drive to do so. I have been canning, gathering oil lamps, wood stove, wood, water containers and researching everything I can, but always in fear that my family and friends would think I was irrational. Especially when I asked a family member to put an OUT HOUSE and a 250 gallon water tank on the property. (Sadly, they are still asleep and view me through the eyes of Siamese cat…)My husband was the biggest disbeliever of all. His educated opinion would be “the government will bring relief to the public …”, or “there is no way that the government would ever let THAT happen…” So I was forced to go underground with my plans. LOL. I wish I had an underground place.
    I stopped talking about what I was doing, but still continued with the drive of a whacky madwoman. And lo and behold one day it just happened. My husband saw Ted Koppel on his favorite news station of PBS speak of things that I had been researching for years. Duh. And Linda, he actually HEARD the message and yells from the living room “Honey! We need to get this book! Ted says that we need to gather and keep so many gallons of water for each person for at least three months because of the possibility of infrastructure going down…” Well, I had to smile as I continued to sterilize my canning jars and thank God that he finally hears the message of what could and very well may happen. He will be an enormous help in the family by ordering them to get prepared and hey, who knows he may even brag about his clever wife who knew about it all along.
    Anyway, I say these things because if my husband can be changed in the blink of an eye by watching Ted Koppel speak of things to come and has actually written about it then maybe, just maybe others will be too. And again, my selfish ego comes creeping forward and wants everyone to be prepared so they do not end up at MY front door. Lol. I thought you would also be interested in seeing Ted on PBS and reading his book so you can alert others. You have quite a following for sure. And even though your followers are like minded, this may help them convince others of what is at hand. Let’s pray that it does.
    Linda, thank so much for your postings. You are doing magnificent work helping people. And yes, I am going to see if CERT is available in my little town. God bless you and your family during these perilous times. Thanks for listening.

      Hi Vivian, I have chills reading your comment. Here’s the deal, I have that book AND I was interviewed or asked questions about being prepared because he was writing a book. I am not mentioned in the book, but I was interviewed and recorded for 45 minutes concerning my thoughts for power outages and food shortages by a member of his staff. I bought the book. I am so glad your husband is now understanding the need to be prepared for anything that may come our way. May God bless you, Linda
