Monday Motivation – Battling Cold & Flu Season

The change of seasons often bring about the colds and flus.  We have had a few bugs popping up in our house, and of course I am straight onto it with healthy remedies.  Keeping the family healthy is a must … or one of my goals.

For sore throats we use Lemon essential oil and a teaspoon of honey.  You can take it just like that, or with hot water as a lemon honey drink.lemonoilThe Thieves Oil is a blend of different essential oils that is highly anti-viral, antiseptic, antibatcherial and anti-infectious.  It was created from research based on a group of 15th century thieves who rubbed oils on themselves to avoild contracting the plague while they robbed the bodies of the dead and dying.  The thieves were forced to tell their secret and disclose the formula of the herbs and spices in exchane for a more lenient punishment.

The Thieves blend is made up from Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, Rosemary.

If I feel like I am fighting sickness, I actually take a drop in water and swallow.  It is a strong taste, but I don’t mind it. My girls will not take it this way, so we put it on the soles of our feet (as the pores in the feet are bigger and absorb the oil faster) I also put it in the diffuser so it kills any air borne germs from spreading.  thieves1

Contact me here if you would like to order the Thieves blend to try.  I have some new USB diffuses to sell, that are just perfect as they are small enough to be portable throughout the house, take to work, or even travel with.  If you would like to grab one of these email me here  as they are going fast.  They are $39.95.diffuser

of course Chicken Soup is a go to when you are sick.  Do you have a favourite recipe to use?

My main focus is to put off getting sick.  I hate feeling unwell, and do not have time!  So getting enough sleep and looking after yourself will enable keeping in front of it.

These Thieves recipes are worth a try too …

I got up early this morning and made some snacks for the week – I know alot of people get their food ready on the weekend, but sometimes that just does not happen.  So early monday morning is a good time for me … it makes the week so much easier, if you have healthy snacks on hand.
