It’s here. Cold season. Fall allergies…woohoo. I’ve been running full out the last several weeks and I confess I’m behind on my sleep.
Which one only knows means my immune system probably doesn’t have its A game on.
A day or two ago I got the tickle in my throat and I thought ughh ohhh.
The next day sneezing and coughing…
Yesterday, runny nose and tired. Tea pot came out…
So here’s what I like to use when I feel a cold a brewing :)
RC on my chest ~ it’s a great blend oil. It contains several Eucalyptus plants which is a super strong antiviral // Myrtle helps decongest the mucus // Pine helps improve circulation in the lungs // Marjoram relieves and calms the muscles to help release headache tension // Tsuga helps open the respiratory system.
I love to diffuse Thieves or Pine. I’ve been diffusing Thieves to help boost my immune system. I also roll it on the bottom of my feet before I go to sleep.
Orange to give me a bit more vitamin C.
Peppermint to help attack the fever and help with inflammation.
Clove is a handy little immune stimulant.
With all of these guys in my corner, what more do I need?
I may feel like I have a cold, but I don’t feel groggy or sluggish like I do if I take cold medicine. Usually, when I use my oils I can knock this out in a day or two. With meds it takes me over two weeks…
So, I’m sipping my tea and letting my body rest 💕
