Don’t Blame Me if you get the Flu!

(You know Grandma, Aunt Betty, the baby cousin Josh, etc)

by Penny Keay

Ever notice how after the gathering of families at the Holidays – you and others get sick?

There are plenty of factors at play. First is the mixture and exchange of viruses from across the country that now get mixed into the air during the family ‘gathering’.

Also everyone has stress that contributes to your body’s immune system and its eventual breakdown. Of course this is where you will then seem to ‘catch’ every ill ‘bug’ that comes near you.

So please don’t blame your relatives for you getting ill. Most of the time if you have been getting plenty of rest, eating right, diffusing essential oil and trying to keep stressful situations to a minimum you won’t be too affected after the Holiday gatherings.

But what else can you do to help PREVENT or minimize the inevitable? Simple little things are all it takes.

Of course use essential oils! The holiday scents of Cinnamon leaf, Orange and Clove bud are great anti viral and antibacterial essential oils. Diffusing them in the air is so simple and a pleasantry this time of year. Not to mention they are so reminiscent of this time of year.

If you start diffusing these as soon as possible and continue throughout the month of January, there is a good chance you can ‘nip’ any virus in the ‘bud’ before it even gets a chance to gets its grip on you.

Our favorites this time of year are Winter's Warmth, Celebration and of course others like Conifer Blend. When we know we are going to be exposed to possibly ill folk we will diffuse Four Robbers blend and Pure Cleansing blend. Several of our customers like The Cleanerand Protect Me! Blend. Just about all essential oils have anti-viral properties to varying degrees.

The above blends all have several of the best essential oils for combating viruses. They have Cinnamon leaf, Thyme, Eucalyptus, Clove bud Rosemary, Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit, Spruce needle, Pine needle, Oregano, Ravensara, Ravintsara, Peppermint and more!

Prevention is still the best defense to avoid coming down with something NOW and AFTER the holidays. Diffuse essential oils that are good to clean the air of viruses, wash your hands frequently, get plenty of rest, eat good nourishing foods and did I mention diffuse essential oils that help you handle stress. Diffuse your favorites to help you feel happy and content as they help keep you healthy too!

Enjoy the Holidays!

By the Way – The same information applies to folks that ask – Why do I always get sick when I’m going on vacation, on vacation or just getting finished with vacation? You get a release of stress and are usually in contact with folks you have or rarely have been around previously!
