Perfect Essential Oils to Get You in the Holiday Mood and Fight the Cold & Flu

Monday, December 19, 2016

There are two things that many of us associate with the winter period: the holidays and cold flu season. But did you know that essential oils can improve both of these cold spells?

Many essential oils have natural qualities that can assist with that nasty cold, so we’ve broken them down between those with anti-bacterial/anti-viral qualities and the essential oils that work as decongestants. Cozy up by the fire, grab a hot cup of tea, wrap yourself in a blanket and try out any of these fantastic essential oils. Diffuse these, use a room mister, or apply a chest rub. No matter what method you choose, we bet that these essential oils will help alleviate your sickness while also filling the room with holiday aromas.
