This is the time of year that everyone gets a flu shot and hopes they can skip getting the flu. I haven’t had a flu shot in years and I haven’t had the flu since the last time I took the flu shot either. The flu is a viral attack on your body that involves fever, tiredness, coughs, colds, muscle aches and exhaustion. How can one flu shot attempt to prevent so many different viruses that could be the cause of your flu? The best treatment for flu needs to be quick and aimed at fighting the virus as well as raising your immunity levels.

If you start to feel achy, shivery and cold, take a warm bath and add 5 drops of tea tree oil, 2 drops of lavender , and 2 drops of thyme. Next massage your whole body with 2 drops of tea tree and 3 drops of eucalyptus diluted in 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil. Then you should get in bed and rest.

You can spray your bedroom with thyme and lavender or put those oils in a diffuser. Drink plenty of liquids. You can make a special drink for your flu by combining 1 drop of clove and 2 drops of lavender. Use 1 drop of this blend in a teaspoon of honey stirred into a cup of warm water and sip slowly. You will feel better than if you took a flu shot and your arm won’t hurt either!
