Tis the season for family and friends and the sharing of many things, which can include colds and lots of food.
This holiday in our home our littlest one gained a cough due to cold. Usually, I will give my kids a teaspoon of honey to keep the coughing at bay, but this year, because I am learning so much about oils, I tried something a little different. I added 5 drops of On Guard to 4 tablespoons of honey and mixed them together in a small canning jar. I would then give my son a teaspoon of honey with the oils already added. He liked the taste. :) Yeah, and it helps to boost his immune system which is noticeably supporting him in fighting this cold.
Cold seasons means stuffy noses and a hard time sleeping,so when my youngest heads off to bed he sets up his bedroom diffuser with his oils. He loves Easy Air, it contains eucalyptus, laurel leaf, tea tree, peppermint and other essentials that support clean air and a relaxing environment. ( you can add it to a carrier oil as well and put it on your chest to help you breathe while you sleep ) . * not to be ingested.
My sis in law and I got into too much turkey, stuffing, and potatoes this holiday. We both felt extremely uncomfortable and each had an upset system. For the first time I dug out the ZenGest, MIRACLE worker!!!! We ingested one drop in 120mls of H20 and also took about 5 drops and mixed it with coconut oils and rubbed it on our bellies. In about 10 minutes we could both feel the relief. I will be bringing this with me wherever I go as a travel companion to save my stomach in those much needed moments.
