Day 22-Surviving Winter-Tips~
Herbs, herbs, herbs....Herbalist Susun Weed suggest five to ten drops of yarrow tincture daily to boost immunity.
Astragalus, ginseng, olive leaf extract and elderberry are among herbs that help prevent and treat colds and flu.
The different ways that are beneficial in using herbs are many.
Tea is always a pleasant and inviting way to do something good and healthy for our immune system.
Essential oils is a pleasing and soothing form of treatment. A drop or 2 on the soles of the feet, or other pressure points...the temple, the bend of the arm, behind the knees, behind the ears and the neck...depending on the issue you are treating. Nothing brings a good night of peaceful sleep/rest like lavender oil rubbed into the temples or ear-lobes.
A diffuser is worth it's weight in gold~it can serve to keep your entire home free of germs, freshen and clean the air and keep you breathing so much better.
Always make certain that any E-oils you use are medicinal grade...the stuff you will find in most retail stores will not be pure or good for personal or medicinal use.
Young Living is a company we can trust to give us the best oils for a really good price.
I trust you are having a healthy and cold/flu free winter so far~
The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is really full of beautiful and aromatic herbs~
