Coming down with a cold is one of life’s most aggravating challenges. You’re sick and don’t have as much energy as normal, but you still have a life to live. You can’t just put everything on hold. You need a remedy fast, and preferably one that is also good for you and not full of chemicals that will just leave you sicker. You want a natural healing solution.
Have you tried using essential oils for colds?
Essential oils for colds are one of the most fast and effective natural healing solutions out there and work well with other natural remedies. Here are our top tips for fighting a cold quickly and effectively:
- Combat stuffiness.
Eucalyptus essential oil is natural decongestant that’s great for unplugging stuff-up sinuses. Try using a diffuser or inhaling some in a warm cloth. If you’ve been blowing your nose nonstop, dabbing some eucalyptus and peppermint oil on the outside of your nose can also help soothe raw skin.
- Stay hydrated.
Water, juice, clear broth, or warm lemon water with honey are your best cold-fighters. Tempting as it may be when you’re feeling this fatigued, your morning coffee will only make the sickness drag on longer.
- Relieve pain.
Warm water — be it in a bath or a shower — can help relax tight, achy muscles. Make it even more relaxing by adding a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil or peppermint essential oil.
- Infuse the air.
Add moisture to the air with a cool mist vaporizer or a humidifier. If using a vaporizer, you can also add a few drops of essential oil — we like eucalyptus or lavender — to help speed the healing process up even more.
- Wipe down surfaces.
Disinfecting is the best way to stop a cold from spreading around your family or coming back. Clean with essential oils, such as eucalyptus essential oil, for a non-toxic, effective cleanser that will leave you feeling healthier.
Don’t let a cold get the best of you this winter. Natural healing is made even easier when you add essential oils into the mix.
