Default Some essential oils and their medicinal properties

I was thinking about the availability of medicine in a crisis situation... There's hundreds of medicinal plant that we could be collecting, but, most of us don't know the difference between Yarrow and Queen Ann's Lace!

I have started purchasing 'essential oil' for my radiant zone first aid kit. I would like to share my research with you. I'm going to create a 'recipe' notebook with dosages, tea recipes and such. I'm also going to include a picture of the plant so I know what I'm looking for if and when I run out of the oils....

I hope this helps you!
