This is me today. Blech.
And if it were more honest there would be tissues shoved up my nose.
So yea, I’m sick, with what seems to be a sinus infection. Basically this means that I CAN’T TASTE MY COFFEE AND BACON. Which is horrid.
I am hosting an event this weekend called, A Night to Breathe. The irony of the name is not lost on me right now. Clearly, I need to get better STAT so I called my sister-in-law the nurse and asked her to pray for me and give me tips to help the situation. She asked if I had any essential oils. I told her that my friend Michelle gave me a Doterra Physician kit but that I really wasn’t sure how to use it. She told me to put some On Guard on my neck and under my tongue (WHOA SPICEY GOOD THING I CAN’T TASTE). She also looked up a steaming remedy for me that I’ll put at the end of the post for all of you who are sick with colds/sinus infections.
I then called up my friend Michelle who gave me the oils and asked her help. She told me to take a about a quarter size of my coconut cooking oil and put one drop of Oregano in it and rub it on my feet. She said I’d smell like a pizza, but it would help me.
Can you tell I’m sick? This is the worst post ever, but it’s about to get good because I’M GIVING AWAY A DOTERRA PHYSICIAN KIT! And by “I’m” I mean my generous friend Michelle. She’s giving away the kit to one of you.
Relief for Those With a Cold or Sinus Infection
3 Tips from My Friend Michelle:
- Rub diluted DigestZen EO on sinus areas (cheeks, forehead and back of neck/base of skull) avoiding eye area. Be prepared to blow your nose!
- Add Breathe EO to a diffuser while you sleep or to a washcloth on the bottom of the tub while you shower and feel the vapors working! Works great for typical coughs or post-nasal drip.
- Dilute Lemon Oil and rub on chest, neck or feet to knock out mucous from seasonal irritants. This is great to use with little ones!
Dilution is simple! Just remember this “rule of thumb”: Your thumb, from closest joint to tip, is roughly one tsp in volume. To a “thumb-ful” of carrier, add 1 drop of EO for babies, elderly and sensitive people. Add 2 or 3 drops for adults. Want to learn more about dilution, carriers and EO safety?
