SANTA ANA WINDS and cold winters bring very dry air conditions with low humidity. This morning I woke up to 20% humidity in our home. I noticed this not only in my sinuses, but my skin felt very dry. – The function of the mucous membrane is to stop pathogens and dirt from entering the body and to prevent dehydration.
WHEN THE AIR IS TOO DRY,
mucous membranes dry up – we are susceptible to contracting illnesses
WHO IS AFFECTED MOST?
STEPS TO TAKE TO STAY HEALTHY:
THE BEST OILS TO USE:
FIRST DEFENSE BLEND: Great breathing oil. One of the most helpful and versatile Synergy blends in Aromatherapy. Rids air of bacteria in sickrooms, crowded offices and classrooms. • anti-bacterial• anti-viral• anti-fungal (important diffusing blend for mold)• mucolytic (loosens mucus – great during cold season and for crowded places where sickness could spread)• great inhalation blend for sinus, colds, and respiratory difficulties (kills bacteria that is airborne or in your respiratory tract) see more…
FIRST AID BLEND: A unique blend of 100% pure Lavender, Bergamot and Tea Tree. Use as INHALATION BLEND FOR SINUSES. Use a few drops of this blend in your diffuser or humidifier. For a more direct approach, apply a fraction of a drop of blend to a piece of paper towel and place in disposable mask. Tea Tree is highly anti-bacterial and will help to loosen up mucus, while Lavender will calm your chest and Bergamot will add a nice calming aspect.
