Herbs synergy part ||
Herbs as mentioned in the first part, have the ability to multiply their healing power when combined properly. Also to be neutralized when the combinations are not suitable and competition is created between the herbs. So let’s see below successful combinations of herbs and essential oils for the desired results!
The synergy of herbs is still being studied, and due to the many combinations and therapeutic herbs it is an inexhaustible source of information. Given that many of the herbs do not yet have complete studies on their healing properties, let alone their synergy with other herbs.
A good combination of herbs consists of 2 to 5 herbs for a specific therapeutic purpose. For example, for relaxation, insomnia, intense stress we will use herbs that serve this purpose and work together, such as linden, lavender and chamomile. We can mix them in equal parts or put proportions 1 – 1 – 2.
At the same time, herbs are foods with many nutrients. The combination of herbs always works better, as more vitamins, minerals and trace elements are combined for simultaneous strengthening and nourishment of the body.
Examples of successful synergies between both herbs and essential oils:
Mint works well with eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary, juniper, bergamot, marjoram, lemon, ginger and tea tree. For the most part, these combinations strengthen and heal the respiratory system. But combinations such as mint with ginger or lemon significantly benefit the digestive system from nausea, indigestion, flatulence.
Valerian for sedative action significantly increases its properties in combination with hops, while reducing the tendency of valerian to upset the stomach.
Garlic for lowering blood pressure and better blood circulation works perfectly with chili peppers, ginger, basil, oregano, turmeric, rosemary, coriander and parsley. In fact, the synergy with oregano or turmeric does not concern the blood circulation but the significant strengthening of the immune system.
Cinnamon is a powerful anti-inflammatory, cures muscle aches and joint pains, while fighting cellulite and fluid retention, even better in combination with rosemary, orange, lemon, marjoram, geranium, rose and ylang ylang.

The treatment of skin irritations is ideal with a combination of geranium and calendula, while calendula works perfectly with chamomile and lavender even for the sensitive babys skin.

For stress relief and optimism, the essential oils of jasmine, rose, neroli, citrus and ylang ylang combine perfectly.
The combinations are many and of course depend on your body, as not all herbs suit us. We carefully choose the combinations so that we are not allergic to any herb but also to have the desired result. We do not overdo the dosages and we consult our personal doctor. The use of the combinations can be in the form of tincture, massage oil, ointment, combination of essential oils, in an aromatherapy device, in inhalations and even in herbal cosmetics.
