Hello everyone! It's been a while since you've all heard from me.. Time is blowing away like the Brighton wind!
I am writing to you today to give you a very simple a quick remedy for this winter colds. We all feel bunged up and achy, so this should be a handy quick fix to keep in your bag, or around you.
All you need is Eucalyptus and Cedarwood essential oils.
You can use them in a few different ways:
1. simply sniff them together from the bottles. 2. put a drop of each oil on the palm of your hands, rub them together and place them in front of your face, breath deeply 3 times. (Alternatively, if you have an aromatherapy necklace or bracelet, apply the oils in it) 3. prepare a blend in a roll on a container (5 ml of carrier oil, 2 drops of Eucalyptus and 2 drops of Cedarwood). Apply under the nose, on wrists, or on the neck. 4. Put a few drops of each oil in a vaporiser and enjoy the scent in the room where you are the most.
Eucalyptus is magical in treating cold, cough, runny nose, sore throat, asthma, nasal congestion, bronchitis and sinusitis, and it also inspires a free-spirited sense of adventure. Cedarwood, on top of relieving tension and anxiety, is a powerful expectorant, which helps in loosening up phlegm and mucus in the respiratory tracts.
Give it a go, it's really amazing!
