If you have a natural first aid kit, you’ll want to be sure and include Trauma Oil among your primary items.

What is Trauma Oil?
It is a blend of three organic flowers – Calendula, St. John’s Wort and Arnica – infused in organic olive oil.  An infused oil is a carrier, usually olive oil, that has been soaked (infused) in herbs or flowers.  If you’ve ever made sun tea, you’ve made an infusion!  The oil that results from an infusion contains the wonderfully medicial properties of the plants that were soaking in it.  The result is a versatile product that can used alone on the skin for healing or added to salves and balms. Using an infused carrier oil in addition to essential oil is a terrific way to double the therapeutic benefits!

What does Trauma Oil help with?

  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Sciatic discomfort
  • Injuries and Wound care
  • Inflammation

Two Tried-and-True Recipes for Pain, Inflammation and Bruising
I formulated both of these blends many years ago and have used them both with great success in my massage practice and with my sons when they were active in sports.  Here’s a chart if you want to alter the dilution for children and the elderly.

1.  Muscle/Joint Comfort Blend
20 drops Birch (Betula lenta)
15  drops Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)
10 drops German Chamomile (Matricaria reticulata)
5 drops Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
5 drops Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
5 drops Juniper Berry (Juniperus communis)
1 oz Trauma Oil
Blend into 1 oz. of Trauma Oil and apply to the painful area as often as needed.

2.  Bruise/Sprain Relief Blend
10 drops Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum)
10 drops German Chamomile (Matricaria reticulata)
5  drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia or Lavendula latifolia)
1 oz Trauma Oil
Blend into 1 oz. of Trauma Oil and apply to the painful area as often as needed.

Where can you purchase Trauma Oil?
Tyler Yearick, owner of The Herbal Guy is a graduate of the Aromatic Wisdom Institute Aromatherapy Certification Program and a master at oil infusions.  

I have used many of his products in both massage and the classroom as carriers for blending.  He makes a trauma oil called Trauma Trio (double infused!) that is both highly effective and affordable; and he puts a lot of time and love into his products.  

You can get it here: Trauma Trio
