Aromatherapy for the Common Cold

I sneezed a coupleĀ  of times yesterday but I didn’t think too much of it. Today at work I sneezed a lot and I am still sneezing this evening. I really don’t feel like writing a blog but I am because I want to tell you what I’m going to do about all this sneezing.

First, I will put 1 drop each of thyme, tea tree, lavender and clove essential oils in a bowl of hot water. Then I will put a towel over my head and breath deeply for 5 minutes. At this point I will also drink a cup of hot water containing 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 drops of eucalyptus, 1 drop of lemon and 1 drop of tea tree essential oil.

Later tonight, I am going to take a hot bath into which I will add 2 drops of thyme, 2 drops of tea tree, 1 drop of eucalyptus and 3 drops of lemon essential oil; then I will lie back and inhale deeply. When I get out of the bath, I am going to massage my neck, chest and sinus area with 1 drop of lemon, 2 drops of eucalyptus and 3 drops of rosemary diluted in 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil.

Tomorrow I am going to carry a tissue containing 1 drop each of peppermint, eucalyptus, clove and ginger essential oil. I’ll sniff that during the day and keep the sneezes at bay. When I get back home I’m going to do it all over again. I have to go now, the teapot is whistling for my steam inhalation. I hope I feel better soon.
