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…
Today…nose on the run all day and tired. Sooo we’ve been chugging hot tea and local honey with oils.
Why not take medicine? Well first of all…I just don’t like it. Second of all…God made all of these wonderful plants that treat everything.
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 💕
