Essential Oil Treatments for Fainting
Fainting is a brief loss of consciousness that is brought about as a result of a temporary lack of oxygen supply to the brain, often brought about by stress, pain, fear or shock, or low blood pressure, low blood sugar, over-heating, and dehydration.
Frankincense has been used for centuries to help with dizziness and fainting, and lavender, peppermint, rosemary and neroli essential oils are all useful for those with a tendency to faint; 2-3 drops can be added to a tissue and inhaled, either to try and prevent fainting, or to help revive someone who has already fainted.
Apply 2-4 drops of preferred essential oil for fainting onto cloth/tissue. Hold cloth or tissue in the palms of your hand and take 2-3 deep breaths through the nose. If inhaling through a cotton ball, gently waft the cotton ball under the nose and take 2-3 deep inhalations.
