I talk to a friend of mine over the phone fairly often and the last couple of times we talked, I could tell she has a terrible summer cold. I told her a little about essential oils and how they can help her get over that cold. Don't you hate it when you get a cold in the summer? Almost every time I travel by airplane I get a cold from being cooped up with strangers all breathing the same air that is circulated over and over! It's no wonder that my husband ended up with a terrible summer cold when we returned from a family reunion in Washington, DC recently (see my husband standing in front of the White House?)
My husband dislikes being sick too so I wanted to help him get over his cold as quickly as possible. I had him drink a cup of my summer cold tea which is hot water with honey and lemon plus one drop each of any two of the following essential oils: eucalyptus, ginger, lavender, tea tree or oregano. All of these essential oils have either antiviral or antibacterial properties and will help you get quick relief for a summer or winter cold. Just drink a cup every four hours until you start to feel better.
