this week my husband, our girls and i have all been fighting the summer sniffles, coupled with a lingering sore throat (no doubt thanks to those lovely pre-school germs).
i am a huge lover of essential oils and my diffuser (i have three throughout our home). i use it every day and i love experimenting with different mixtures and combinations based on our household needs(s).
here's what i'm diffusing today to help combat our colds:
bugs be gone combo:
-5 drops frankincense
-5 drops tea tree
-5 drops pine needle
frankincense is a great remedy for colds, coughs, laryngitis, nasal congestion (+ a million other things too!). tea tree is a great remedy for colds + the flu, asthma, bronchitis, coughs, infections, sinusitis (+ a million other things too!). pine needle is also a great remedy for bronchitis, colds + the flu, fatique, sinus congestion + sore throats (+ a million other things too!)
there are so many different combinations that are great for diffusing when you are under the weather. i'm also a big fan of lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint for combating those pesky cold germs.
what's your favorite cold remedy? post below and let's start a dialogue.
