Colds are common when seasons change. In New York City right now everyone is coughing and hacking, which is so not sexy. When this happens it’s easy to pick up a bug. People forget to cover their mouths and touch things with their gems.
If you do happen to get a cold or a touch of the flu, essential oils are wonderful to have around for natural self-care.
For a bit of relief on your throat and chest try these two magick aromatherapy remedies.
Gargle- If you have a sore throat, drop one drop of lavender, tea tree oil, or eucalyptus oil into hot water and gargle. While this is not tasty, it works wonders on the throat.
Blend- For a sore throat and chest, mix olive oil or sweet almond oil with a few drops of eucalyptus and lavender oil then slather over your throat and chest area. Make sure you put the essential oils in a carrier oil (olive oil or sweet almond oil) so that essential oil dissolve into your skin. Take a deep breath and visualize being healthy.
