This is a post I hadn’t planned on sharing until later in the season but wouldn’t you know it I have the flu. It seems early to me but I guess the flu bug can’t tell time. I woke up Friday morning with a sore throat, migraine type headache, and body aches all over and immediately went to my Essential Oil stash to concoct a cure. Well let me tell you I’m not a good sick person, I hate being down and am always thinking of all the things I should be doing. But that first day I just couldn’t stay awake to save my life. I dozed off and on several times throughout the day and finally gave in and went to bed.
The next day, Saturday, hubby and I had already planned a road trip to hit the US12 Heritage Trail Garage Sales. At 9am we were loaded up in the truck and ready to go. I certainly wasn’t feeling up to it but didn’t want to let hubby down so along I went with my pillow and blankie. I made it until 2pm and then I had to crash, I napped for about an hour and then finished garage saleing. I guess I wasn’t really into it because I didn’t purchase a thing. By Sunday I was feeling a little better and even did a kitchen project for the blog, did all the laundry, and cleaned house. On Monday I was pretty much over it, I did mow the lawn, and a few other things but tried not to overtask myself. All I have left is a slight cough but am on the road to recovery.
So here’s what I used and how I applied the oils. (By the way, I only use Young Living oils so I can’t say if other brands will work as well or not).
Apply the above oils in the order listed (one drop each) to the thymus area, Vita Flex Points on the feet, chest, back, throat, and on any place where the flu has settled. Layer the oils start with the RC first and massage in, next add the peppermint and massage in, then the thieves, and lavender. Do every 4 hours until the flu has passed.
