Essential Oils for Colds and Flu

The cold and flu season… Yuck! It looks like this year is shaping up to be a big year for the flu. Did you know that essential oils can help, in conjunction with your doctor’s advice and treatment. Today I thought I would share three of my favorite essential oils that can relieve the physical discomforts of the colds and flu.   

Eucalyptus is one of the most well-known essential oil that can help with cold, flu, and breathing issues. You can relieve sinus congestion by adding a few drops to some hot water and breathe in the steam.

Ravensara essential oil is best used when you first feel the unset of a cold or flu. It can help shorten the length of the illness by boosting your natural immune system. Add a few drops to your bath or (foot bath) when you begin to feel the onset.

Opoponax essential oil can clear and widen breathing pathways and helps relieve sinusitis. It can be applied topically when used with an oil carrier to help relieve sore muscle and joints.
