Last week I came down with a horrible cold. Fever, chills, aches, the works.
I slept nearly 12 hours straight in one night, and when I woke up I knew I had to take action to take care of myself. It always takes me a little while to remember exactly how to do this, but eventually I started brewing a pot of tea and added fresh lemon juice. Then I cooked up a pot of soup with a whole head of garlic, broccoli, and some cannellini beans.
I took a hot shower with a few drops of eucalyptus and cinnamon essential oils in the base of the bath.
Lastly, I tried rubbing thieves’ oil (in some sweet almond oil) on the soles of my feet.
Now I will be prepared for next time. Hopefully it won’t be too soon…
How about you? How do you take care of yourself when you have a cold or flu?
