Fighting Colds and the Flu With Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy for Colds and the FluEver since I began my journey into aromatherapy over 12 years ago, I have experienced far less colds and flus than I previously had. And when I get ill, I seem to recover faster. Use of essential oils helps to make recovery a little more pleasant (or should I say a little less unpleasant).

In simplistic terms, the regular but safe use of essential oils has kept my immune system healthy and has helped to ward off the bacteria, viruses and microbes that can lead to illnesses.

In flu season I use a Blackspruce, Pine and Juniperberry essential oil blend in my diffuser. It works very well. I use it in a diffuser and in the sauna. In Finland where I live people soak juniper and pine needles in water and throw it on sauna stone to create a very healing steam and scent is wonderful. Oh....and birch leaves and twigs are very popular in the sauna too, here in Finland.
