How to Protect your Family from Colds and Flu with a little help from Essential Oils

By | February 18th, 2018|Categories: Health issues|Tags: , , , |

Coughs and Sneezes spread diseases

Do you have any ‘go to’ techniques when your throat feels sore or you are starting with a cold or flue?

Maybe you start drinking many cups of tea when you first feel that tickle.

Maybe you drink hot water with lemon and honey. One of my favourites, with some fresh ginger. Or you may have some favourite herbs.

Well I have another thing you might want to add to your approach.

Essential oils are amazing when it comes to supporting immunity against colds and flu.

Winter is a prime time for viruses. Fortunately essential oils offer us powerful ways to stay healthy.

There are many essential oils that can combat microbes and support health at the same time, but you don’t need a huge collection. There are five powerhouse oils that you can make so many blends with.

TREE TREE

LAVENDER

EUCALYPTUS

FRANKINCENSE

SWEET ORANGE

You can diffuse Frankincense and Lavender throughout the day to help destroy airborne microbes, Your house will be healthier and will smell amazing.

Or make a simple inhaler with Eucalyptus and Sweet Orange

Another of my favourite blends I call:

NO ONE GETS SICK IN THIS HOUSE.

5 drops Eucalyptus

5 drops Tea Tree.

6 drops sweet orange.

This blend is great for diffusing throughout the day.

In the evening I switch to:

EVERYONE GETS A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP.

6 drops Lavender

8 drops Frankincense

4 drops sweet orange.

For children reduce the oil count. Their systems are more sensitive and they are smaller than adults.

So breathe deep and enjoy the winter.

I have another suggestion that you might want to add to your sore throat approach,

It’s a lotion you can apply to your neck, chest and throat. It’s made with essential oils that are good at calming inflammation and reducing infections: Hemlock,Tea Tree, Opopanax and Black Pepper.

1 o.z. (28gr.) unscented lotion

6 drops of Hemlock ( Tsuga canadensis)

4 drops Tea Tree

3 drops Opopanax

2 drops Black Pepper.

Make this blend in a 1oz. (30ml) glass jar. Put the lotion into the jar, then add the essential oils. Stir gently with the handle of a stainless steel spoon.

Rub the lotion into your throat and back of neck, when you have a cough , or when your throat feels sore, itchy and tickly. Apply as needed several times a day.

Have a healthy winter!

Let me know any other hints and tips you may have.

Until the next time.

I always carry lip balms with me but their effects never seem to last.

Now we have winter upon us and we are heating our houses the air can become very dry and lips become chapped.

I couldn’t ever imagine how making my own lip balms could be so easy.

If you love lip balms learning a great lip balm recipe can be a game changer.

If you love lip balms learning a great lip balm recipe can be a game changer.

Home-made lip balms can be very purse friendly and now I make a whole batch to last.

 

  1. Here’s my basic formula

  • I ordered a pack of 25 empty lip balm tubes (http://amzn.to/2ymPXdo )

  • I bought a tiny stainless steel funnel. Easier than a plastic funnel. You can remover any solid balm with a tooth pick.

  • 6 tablespoons Organic coconut oil or Shea butter.
  • 2 tablespoons Beeswax granules http://amzn.to/2Amk3zu

  • 30 Drops of our favourite essential oil.

  • I find it helpful to have a lip balm tray to hold up the tubes whilst the liquid sets.

  • Here’s where I buy mine from: http://bit.ly/2k719F3

    1. Simple method.

You’ll need only 10 minutes, honestly!

Melt coconut oils in a double boiler or pan with a Pyrex dish inside over a medium heat, stirring frequently until all is melted. Quarter fill the pan with simmering water.

Add your favourite essential oils.

You can also add vitamin E oil.

Carefully and slowly pour a small amount into each tube. NB Mixture will harden rapidly.

Let it cool for about and hour then use as normal.

Any extra balm left use on your feet and elbows.

Leave the tubes lying around the house.
