3. Essential Oils

Essential oils have become my first line of defense against any ailment that has plagued our household over the past few years. Some tests have shown that essential oils are so strong that viruses cannot live in their presence.

My favorites to use for colds are eucalyptus, peppermintoregano, and an immune boosting or germ fighting blend

You can also diffuse the oils into the air or Get Yourself Pure Antiviral Spray to clear the air in rooms, or spray on your? kids shirt before going out

The neti pot simply provides a way for you to easily and effectively clean out your nasal passages by pouring a warm saline solution in one nostril and allowing it to drain out the other. add warm water to a bowl, if you have eucalyptus leaves or 2 drops of essential oil add them, and breath in !

5. Echinace

Studies have shown that taking this herb can help boost your immune system, but the results have been mixed as to whether or not it actually prevents or shortens the life of a cold (source). From personal experience, I have seen that when I start taking echinacea capsules, my symptoms either disappear or are very, very weak .

6. Elderberry Syrup

Elderberries are a natural immunity booster. You can find the berries made into a syrup at most health stores or  you can try making your own elderberry syrup.! (recipe here).

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
