My husband and our family have had it on and off since December. It’s tough!
Here is a remedy that really helped us!!!
This recipe is simple. You only need two ingredients and a small glass spray bottle. I found some gorgeous green colored ones.
1 bottle of distilled water (my preference)
1 bottle of Eucalyptus oil
Mix a few drops 💦 of the oil into the bottle you filled with water. A little goes a long way and depends on the size of the bottle.
Next BEFORE you go into the shower spray one of the shower walls with it. You’ll notice immediately that soothing scent. It will start to open up your sinuses and make you feel better! Take your shower as usual.
Another thing you can do is hang a bunch of eucalyptus upside down in the shower with twine. But I love ❤️ the oil method in the spray bottle. I like to make small batches but if you’d like to make a larger bottle use a 16 0z. Spray bottle and fill with water. Add about 4 drops of the oil.
Shake and spray! You’re good to go.
Next I placed some Vicks Vapo rub on the soles of my husbands feet after the shower. I followed up with a clean pair of cotton socks.
* If you’d like to you can add a slice of fresh ginger into the mug too.
Then I gave him a cup of tea. But not with a tea bag I made an elixir with a lemon 🍋 and honey 🍯 cough drop.
FYI I allow the cough drop to melt inside the cup.
I warmed up some hot water and dropped the throat lozenge in the mug or tea cup. His mug reads “Hello Handsome” He gets a kick out if it every time I serve him something in that particular mug. He drinks every last drop.
The eucalyptus scented shower, the cozy socks with the rub and the cough drop tea I made combined made him feel so much better. That and lots of bed rest and no screen time!
I repeated the next few days as needed.
Soothing in so many ways!
Added bonus… his feet felt so soft and a warm sensation filled his body. He’s much better now!
Obviously if you are allergic to ANY of the above. You may need to alter this recipe to your needs.
Feel better soon.
