No matter how careful you are, we are all bound to catch the common cold at some point during the year. It might be during the cold season or even worse during the warm summer months when we are least likely to be thinking about catching a cold. Whenever you are around a lot of people, you are susceptible to catching their cold symptoms. In these days of Covid 19 it is even more important that we guard against catching anything, luckily, wearing a mask helps with that.

You can use essential oils to relieve the symptoms of a cold in several ways:

  1. Mix 3 drops of eucalyptus, 2 drops of tea tree, and 3 drops of lemon essential oils in a hot bath. Lie back, relax and breath deeply.
  2. Mix 1 drop each of thyme, tea tree, lavender, and clove in a bowl of steaming water. Cover your head with a towel, lean over the bowl and breath deeply for 5 minutes, taking a break as needed.
  3. Place 1 drop each of thyme, peppermint, eucalyptus, and clove on a tissue and inhale deeply as needed. You can carry the tissue around with you all day.
  4. Massage the chest, neck, and sinus area (forehead, nose, and cheekbones) with 1 drop of lemon, 2 drops of eucalyptus, and 3 drops of rosemary essential oils diluted in 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil.
  5. Rub the soles of your feet with 1 drop each of thyme, peppermint, eucalyptus, and clove diluted in 1 teaspoon of almond oil. Put socks on your feet and go to bed.

Having a cold can be a miserable experience for you or your family but you can ease cold symptoms quickly by using essential oils that contain no alcohol or harmful chemicals.
