Seasonal Issues (sneezing, coughing, runny nose and drainage...oh my!)

Sooooo, is anyone out there silly like me?

I have been suffering (well not about tolerating) being sick for over 2 weeks now.  2 weeks!  Me?!  The one who rarely gets sick.

So, I was doing an essential oil class Saturday and the topic of seasonal sneezes, coughs, drainage and runny noses came up.

AND IT DAWNED on's that time's early this year.  I usually do it once a year, every April or May.  Well....with the way the weather has been this year I guess it's here early.

This is what I do...I base it on body weight, so I take 2 drops each of lemon, lavender and peppermint.  A larger man, I would suggest 3-4 drops of each.  2 times every day for 2 weeks.  For my kids I do 1 drop of each in a shot glass.  When they were under the age of 5, I put the oils along their spine.

Seasonal Issues Protocol
2-4 drops of each Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint (base on body weight)
Small amount of water
Shot glass
Water to drink

I put a small mouthful of water in my adorable essential oil shot glass I bought from AromaTools and then add 2 drops of lemon, 2 drops of lavender and 2 drops of peppermint.  And swig it back without letting it touch my lips.  Then I rinse the shot glass 2-3 times and swig it back so that I get all of the oils out of the shot glass.  Then grab my water bottle and drink water.  Do this 2 times per day for 2 weeks.  

No joke, on day 2 I was already feeling better!

Love my essential oils!!!!
