Preparing for Cough and Cold Season

cough-dropsPreparing for Cough and Cold Season: Every year at certain times the news media floods us with dire predictions about the upcoming “cold” season – the possibility (or probability!) of an uncontrollable pandemic. Have your Thieves products on hand!

While some people of the sitting-duck mentality fervently pray to not be struck down – others of us happily marinate in and diffuse our precious oils, drink our daily dose of NingXia Red, and take other Young Living immune supporting products like: Inner Defense Softgels (contains Thieves , oregano and thyme) Exodus, Longevity Capsules, ImmuPro, Thieves Lozenges, etc., along with cultivating positive lifestyle practices (diet, exercise, stress relief).

Here are 10 cold and cough tips:

wash-handsAccording to experts, “Proper hand washing is one of the most effective methods of preventing the spread of germs”. Is it possible to “properly” wash your hands in a gas station or restaurant rest room with cold water and yucky pink soap? Try carrying around a little bottle of Thieves Spray and use liberally throughout the day! It works great to nip a sore throat in the bud, too!

Do you spend time in a crowded office or school where you are exposed to lots of people sneezing and coughing? For added protection, carry around the Thieves Cough Drops along with your Thieves Spray and your emergency oil arsenal.

Try alternating Thieves Oil and ImmuPower Oil on the bottom of your feet at bedtime throughout the cold and flu season. These complementary oil blends provide a wide range of anti-bacterial and anti-viral germ-busting action.

Drink NingXia Red daily and carry around some NingXia Red sample packets to supercharge your system whenever you need an extra boost.

Get your diffuser out and start diffusing. A Young Living diffuser activates nature’s own flu defense! My favorite oils to diffuse for removing bacteria and virus from the air are: thieves blend, eucalyptus, thyme, rosemary and lemon. Diffuse it into the room when you are sick, or as prevention.

Raindrop Technique has become a widely used therapeutic protocol throughout the United States. Numerous anecdotal accounts relate the significant and substantive benefits generated by this procedure. Raindrop Technique has been use to annihilate cases of viral infection, even stops cold or flu and many other conditions.

Consult your Essential Oils Desk Reference. Don’t have one? Highly recommended!

Peppermint and Eucalyptus – These oils are cool and soothing and are known to clear the respiratory system and ease breathing. They can be applied directly to the neck, throat, chest, and back to open the lungs or inhaled to soothe the sinuses. Peppermint and Eucalyptus are safe to apply on the skin.

Most important: Be prepared and stock up for the winter – you won’t get the MAXIMUM benefit if you don’t have your oils and products readily available when you need them most.

Carry some oils with you at all times.

Young Living Essential Oils are your best friends. They are always here when you need them.

Life is Good! Live Healthy!
