Dealing with Natural Disasters
When dealing with natural disasters (whether they be earthquake, hurricane, tornado, fires,
tsunamis, or floods) the disruption in basic infrastructure is the same. This includes water supplies,
electricity, natural gas, and fuels like gasoline as well as disrupting sanitation facilities and disposal
of sewers and garbage all posing biohazards. This also means that access to hospitals and health
facilities may be down for a time and maybe even destroy our homes. Having an additional supply
of essential oils and knowing how to use them will be very useful to you and your family in
purifying your air, cleansing your body as well as helping with emotional and physical needs.
Other Emergency Ideas
Water Purification - If you're in an area where the water is suspect, add two drops of lemon oil to a
glass of water and stir. Let it sit a couple of minutes, the pollutants will come to the top. Skim them
off with a spoon or place a clean napkin or paper towel over the top of the water and let them
absorb into the napkin. For bacterial and other severe water concerns - OnGuard, cinnamon,
clove, peppermint, and oregano (kills giardia & E. coli) may work as well.
Reducing Radiation Exposure
from Dr. Hill
1) Nutrition is essential to protect & fortifying tissues: continue with LifeLong Vitality
2) Use oils that are protective of individual tissue structures and body systems as a whole:
Frankincense, under the tongue 2-3 drops am & pm & rub over thyroid
Patchouli, topically apply over the thyroid
Zendocrine, topically apply over the liver (to cleanse so in good shape)
Oils to support Thyroid (regulates metabolism, produces hormones to regulate blood pressure,
heart rate, body temperature, and energy production)
overactive thyroid - myrrh (TA) (can use 1 drop of each myrrh & lemongrass applied to base
of throat and reflex points on feet
sluggish thyroid - peppermint (TA), clove (TA) (can use 1 drop each of lemongrass &
peppermint or clove applied to base of throat and reflex points on feet
Oils to support Liver (digestion, produces cholesterol to make hormones and cell membranes,
metabolizes harmful substances and toxins
clove (TA) for cleansing applied over liver area and on reflex points on the feet
secondary oils: geranium (TA), helichrysum (TA), myrrh (TA)

Emotional/Mood Enhancers
One thing many people may not think of, and yet is a real part of
emergencies/disasters, are emotions and moods such as stress, anxiety, fear, grief/sorrow,
depression, anger, hopelessness, discouragement, etc. The essential oils may be helpful to a person
in dealing with these emotions and moods and can help provide needed balance and focus both daily
and in times of crisis.
Our sensory system is stimulated by odors (i.e. essential oils) through receptors in the
olfactory system in your nose. Once stimulate, the reaction goes through the olfactory bulb and into
the limbic system which is the part of the brain that creates emotional responses, memories, and
hormones. The brain has two parts of the nervous system that it works with (sympathetic &
parasympathetic). The sympathetic is known as the fight or flight that helps us deal with stress,
frustration and unhappiness. When we are in conflict (emotional, physical, spiritual or emotional) we
have these feelings. When this is done for a long period of time our body is in a chemical burden and
begins to mimic disease or other health problems (ie. increase in cortisol (helps deal w/stress) means
higher blood pressure, slow body’s inflammatory response, higher glucose levels, and altering our
metabolism).
Aromatherapy is a simple, powerful, and effective way to help deal with those
emotional issues. Whether it is Lavender or Serenity to help a fearful child fall asleep, or Citrus Bliss
or other citrus oils to uplift a mom who lost a husband and yet still needs to keep up positive spirits
for her children in the midst of a disaster, the oils will not take away the ‘problem’ but help the
person emotionally be able to cope as well as help the body with it’s natural physical responses.
