So, if Varroa treatment is a mixture of Thymol, Camphor, Eucalyptus oil and Menthol, all of which I have in my Aromatherapy box, would it be a hardship to MAKE ones own varroa treatment?

I use just thymol in mine. You may need a bit more than that in an 'aromatherapy box'.

There is a recipe thread on here for Thymol treatment, just do a search.
