I always seem to write blogs about whatever is going on with me at the time. Right now I have a nasty cold with a hacking cough. If you have a dry cough (no mucus being formed) you can mix 2 drops of eucalyptus with 2 drops of lemon oil in 2 tablespoons of honey.  Take 1 teaspoon of this at a time diluted in a glass of warm water. Sip this mixture slowly to calm your dry cough.

You can also massage your back and chest with 3 drops of eucalyptus and 2 drops of thyme diluted in 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil. If you prefer the steam inhalation method, use 3 drops of lavender in a bowl of steaming water. Cover your head with a towel and breath the steam for 5 minutes.

If you have mucus with your cough like I do, you can use the same treatments above however, use this blend in the 2 tablespoons of honey: 2 drops of eucalyptus, 1 drop of thyme and 1 drop of tea tree. Only add 1 teaspoon of the honey blend at a time diluted in a glass of warm water.
