It’s important to stay healthy during cold and flu season, which coincides with the holiday season. Essential oils can protect us from a wealth of problems, including sniffles, and general aches and pains. For headaches, inhale peppermint essential oil right from the bottle or put a few drops on a tissue. If you’re feeling feverish, you can rub a small amount on your feet. If you’re feeling achy, use a massage oil made with oils that have warming and anti-inflammatory properties such as Lavender, Ginger, and German and Roman Chamomile. Blend together in a carrier oil like sweet almond oil. Bay Laurel, Eucalyptus, and Lavender also help with sniffles by boosting the immune system. Use after a hot shower.
Oils have great healing properties and we mustn't overlook those when we want to heal ourselves.
Most people when they feel a cold coming on will do a quick fix with aspirin.
Aspirin just suppresses the illness while oils let it flow.
