Essential Oils for Cold or Flu- Today we are going to tell you how to mix some of your essential oils to ensure you don’t spread viruses during the cold/flu season or to make you feel better if you’re already caught that awful cold. Make sure your diffuser is dusted off, cleaned up, and ready to go!

Don’t worry, you don’t need a diffuser but it’s always nice to have.

Aromatherapy For Cold or Flu 1

Recipe #1:

These oils should be mixed in a diffuser for steam inhalation.

This blend can be used in your diffuser (electric diffuser pictured below), or you can put a few drops around the house, on the radiator to evaporate and fill the room, or use it in a spray bottle.

If you don’t have a diffuser, drop the mixture into boiled water. Put a towel over your head and breath in the steam. Be careful as the mixture will be hot. The oils and steam will help loosen mucus (and you will feel like you’re getting a pretty great facial at the same time).

Again, we recommend getting plenty of rest and fluids when you are sick!
