Are you ever fascinated by the body and its many ways that it can help to heal itself? Do you love oils and want to know how to use them more effectively? Check this out!
Did you know that you can put oils in and around your belly button? Your belly button (or navel) as we all know is where your umbilical cord attaches to your mother when you are being created in the womb. Well, behind the navel is the Pechoti gland which houses more than 72,000 veins and millions of nerves. The total amount of blood vessels we have in our body is equal to double the circumference of the earth. Because of this, you can use this area to help treat many different ailments within your body.
These are just some of the oils that can be used in the navel area to help with some of these ailments. Take a cotton swab and a bit of whichever oil and rub inside your navel. I thought this was interesting and tried for myself and to my surprise, it worked! Take a look through and see if something might help out whatever is ailing you!

**Important to note that Thyme oil is an expectorant, which means it can help remove mucus from your airways and lungs. Thyme oil is approved by Germany’s Commission E in the treatment of bronchitis, whooping cough, and upper respiratory inflammation. Thyme oil is a powerful compound and should not be used directly on your skin, as this can cause sensitization and irritation. It must first be diluted with a carrier oil (like olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil). Use a therapeutic grade of Thyme Oil.
