It is that time of the year again. The weather has changed, punctuated by rapid temperature swings. You start to feel it. A bit weak, rundown and suspicious of the tingling in your throat, nagging headache or stuffy nose, you reach for the medicine cabinet hoping to allay the onset of a nasty cold or flu. But, the problem is chemical medicines can only suppress some of the symptoms associated with colds and flus, but they can do nothing to prevent them or shorten their duration.

You should know that there are real ways to use essential oils to stop sickness in its tracks. We want to share a few good ways of cleaning your home and protecting your loved ones from harmful germs and viruses with essential oils.

Easy, low-cost and convenient these helpful tips will make a difference

Firstly, the best advice we can give to protect ourselves from getting sick is via heavy prevention.

An environment free of germs is one that is likely to also be free of sickness.

  • Regularly use our recipe for your own essential oil-based industrial strength DIY cleaning solution on your floors, counters, doorknobs, toilets, sinks and other heavily trafficked locations to stop the growth of any potential disease carrying vectors.

Second, make it a point to prevent sickness by maintaining healthy habits.

  • Frequently drink lots of water.
  • Get good sleep. Rest is vital.
  • Eat a balanced diet.

Third, kill germs and viruses with essential oils.

Defend yourself from colds and flu by doing the following:

  • Wash your hands earnestly, diligently, and regularly. Have your “homemade essential oil-based antibacterial soap” on hand, at the office, in your bag and at work.  
  • Diffuse antibacterial essential oils like tea tree, lemon, eucalyptus, cinnamon and many others in your home, car and work. The constant presence of atomized essential oil particles in the air will continually diminish the presence of harmful foreign bodies.

There are no other cheaper, easier ways to rid the environment of bacteria and microbes than to diffuse essential oils into the air in your local environment.

  • Use peppermint, lavender, citrus eo’s and tea tree in a compress to the forehead or a few drops in a nice, hot bath.
  • If feeling achy or stiff, use a few drops of lavender and rosemary in your favorite carrier oil and massage them on neck, shoulders, back and hands and feet.
  • If you feel congested or have a runny nose or cough you can massage diluted eucalyptus, cedarwood, peppermint, rosemary on your chest and neck. Alternatively, add some drops of these essential oils to a large bowl of hot water. Place a towel over your head and lean over the bowl to breath the vapors in deeply.

It is possible to ease a sore throat by gargling essential oils (just a couple drops of lemon and peppermint essential oil in a large glass of warm water).

Follow these basic tips and you will definitely notice a marked reduction in the frequency of sickness in your life!

Not sure if I am doing something wrong . . . every time I click on a phrase in the article to take me to related info, I get a “page not found” message. The “Recent Articles” links do work. Love your beautiful diffusers!
