Scents that Heal: Essential Oils
The Dr. Oz Show
with Dr. Oz & the Medicine Hunter

Dr. Oz and the Medicine Hunter explore the medicinal properties of essential oils. Not only do they smell good, but they can make you feel better.

  • Manuka oil is good for cuts and scrapes thanks to its antifungal qualities. It promotes faster healing of the skin.
  • Smelling Lavender oil can reduce the stress hormones in your blood. For help sleeping at night, put some on your pillow.
  • Peppermint oil is one of the few essential oils that can be ingested. Mix with water to relieve indigestion and ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

“And here to help me is my good friend Chris Kilham, the famous Medicine Hunter, who travels all over the world in search of plant-based medicines, where I think a lot of the future of all the world’s remedies lay.” – Dr. Mehmet Oz,The Dr. Oz Show
