Unfortunately Christmas is often the time when viruses abound and colds and 'flu are passed around.So what can we do for ourselves? Well, I will be taking a leaf out of my aromatherapist's book and using preventative measures such as his anti-viral blends that have proved useful to me in the past when viral infections such as colds and flu that affect the respiratory passages have been rife in the area!
When coughs, colds and flu are doing the rounds he suggests:
Swiping a Roller Ball of Aromatherapy Blend 11 under the nose several times a day to kill bugs at the point of entry.
Using an anti-viral hand lotion of Blend 11 to protect you from picking up the bugs by touch. (shaking hands etc.)
Purchase 5ml of pure Aromatherapy Blend 11 for your own usage and use in the following way:
Adding a few drops of Blend 11 to washing up liquid, to the hand-wash in the bathroom to kill bugs etc.
A few drops of Blend 11 can also be used in a steam inhaler or in a room burner to kill germs.
If you've been unlucky and respiratory viruses attack, Blend 41 may be found to help prevent the severity when applied immediately in a lotion to rub in your neck, chest and stomach.
The therapeutic application of 'roller-balls' makes for easy and discrete application and has been found useful to those suffering from:
Minor ear problems·
Minor skin rashes, irritation, insect bites
As a Preventative Antiviral
Anyone suffering from earwax may be happy to know that there are now natural aromatherapy products available as eardrops to soften and aid removal: 10ml 'Block Busters' in a dropper bottle
