you have to believe that nature has given us all the necessary healing tools to get better faster! Here are top 3 essential oils to fight a cold and that never fail to impress you and your body:
Wild oregano Essential oil
This essential oil is truly a miracle of nature; it is a powerful antimicrobial and treats respiratory tract disorders. You should never use it undiluted (as most of essential oils). My trick is to take a teaspoon of raw organic honey and add 3 drops of wild oregano essential oil and swallow it straight down. Avoid having the essential oil touching the lining of your mouth as this will taste really bad and may burn. you’ve been warned! I find this oil the most efficient when I use it at the beginning of a sore throat and it usually gets rid of it in a few minutes...
Organic Ravensara (or ravintsara) essential oil
Top 2 essential oils to fight a cold is called ravensara essential oil. This is antiviral and an immune stimulant. It comes from Madagascar and contains 50% of eucalyptol. It is great for sinus or lungs infections. I usually dilute 5 drops in a tablespoon of carrier oil (like almond or jojoba) and massage it on my throat, chest and back. It works very well whenever I have sore throats as a topical application diluted with a carrier oil.
Organic Niaouli essential oil
Number 3 essential oils to fight a cold is Niaouli. It comes from an ever green tree in Australia and is great to clear infections such as bronchitis, catarrh and sinus. Niaouli essential oil is a very safe oil to use (always diluted!) and you could take a two drops in a glass of water at the first sign of a cold or flu, ask your pharmacist for more info. It also works well to use diluted in a carrier oil and massage on your throat, chest and back.
You can also use these essential oils in a diffuser at home.
