So, I’ve been sick a lot the past half year. Before that, I was sick once in over 2 years. I guess I was due. Over a month ago, I was desperate to get over whatever was ailing me as fast as possible. I decided to try something new. Essential oils baby! I have no idea if they work or not but what the hell, I would try anything to not get sick or get over a sickness faster. So after much research I made my own concoction that I rub on my neck, feet, or hands every day. I haven’t gotten sick yet since I’ve been using it but it’s only been like a month, lol. I’ll have to give it a couple more months and actively being around a couple more sick people to know if it really works. But I thought I would share my find with you girls.
First, you have to dilute essential oils with a carrier oil. I chose coconut oil, because it’s awesome in every way. My own recipe (after much research) is 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to every 12 drops of essential oil. Below is 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, 12 drops of lavender oil, 12 drops of eucalyptus oil, and 12 drops of lemon oil. Lavender essential oil has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Eucalyptus essential oil is antiviral and fights bacteria. It’s a great decongestant and helps open blocked nasal passages and soothe inflammation. Lemon essential oil helps boost the body’s immune system and increases your ability to fight off illness.
I bought cheap essential oils. I would like to invest in some better ones. Don’t know if it matters but I have heard certain brands are more effective.
So, yeah. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
