Essential Oils Tropical Disease Rx ~ First Aid Suggestions for Travelers

Tropical countries may expose travelers to all sorts of exotic diseases, especially those spread through mosquito/flea bites, which I’m prone to.

Tropical Disease Rx – Essential Oils Options
My husband and I traveled to India for a month, in late 2004. Tropical countries may expose travelers to all sorts of exotic diseases, especially those spread through mosquito/flea bites, which I’m prone to.

The Center for Disease Control makes everything sound dire and frightening… probably to keep Americans from ‘wandering abroad’ and learning about the rest of the world. Ooops, my political cynic just raised her ’squinty-eyed’ head! <grin>

Anyway, I dutifully researched ALL the possible major disease dangers for India and essential oils (EOs) to have in our first aid kits that might help…just in case.
