This is one of my favorite methods of essential oil application for many acute conditions. It is very useful to allow essential oils to penetrate in a particular area of the body. 1)  Mix 6 drops of essential oil(s) and 1 tablespoon salt in an empty bowl 2) Fill bowl with hot or cold water 3 Soak a piece of cloth, wring it out and cover the affected area 4) Repeat this process for 5 to 15 minutes, as needed For alternate compresses fill one bowl with very warm water, and the other one with iced water Here are some examples: KIDNEY STONES: Years ago we were invited to a family party, the moment we arrived my sister started to scream out of pain, she had an awful kidney stone that started to bother right at that moment.  Luckily for her, I carried my essential oils with me.  I asked the host of the party to give me two bowls. I mixed 3 drops of Grapefruit essential oil and 3 drops of Fenne l essential oil with 1 tablespoon of regular salt and added to one bowl. I created another mixture and added to the other bowl.  One bowl was filled with hot water, the other one with iced water. Fennel and Grapefruit are said to be litholytic which means they can dissolve stones. [1] She was crying and initially would not even allow me to touch her.  I applied one compress at a time, first the hot one, then the cold one for about 15 minutes.  The pain subsided , she literally woke up and went to the bathroom, expelled the stone and went to dance! After the party I made a massage oil with orange, grapefruit, fennel and other detoxing oils, she applied it on her lower back and lower abdomen every day and never complained about a kidney stone again. I have recommended this method to many more friends and clients, they have always reported great results.
