At this time of year, we all tend to succumb to blocked noses, flu, etc. And even more so for those of us who regularly have to be outdoors on photo shoots and so on.
So here’s a tried and tested remedy that works wonders for me and my family.
It’s using Oregano oil…yes, it’s from the herb we use in the kitchen, only because this is the oil from the plant, it is more concentrated.
How do I use it? Well, at the first sign of a cold or flu, I mix just 1 drop with a teaspoon of honey and take it that way. Or if the nose is heavily blocked, then I put a few drops in very hot water in a pan, sit at the table with a towel over my head, and inhale the vapours.
Within hours, sometimes even less, all symptoms are gone…and for good!
Are there any things you need to watch out for? Not really, but because it is concentrated, be very careful about giving it to kids….in fact, I wouldn’t even consider trying it on a child less than 5 or 6 years old….the only safe way for a child younger than that is to put a few drops onto a handkerchief and place it near where the child is sleeping.
What makes it s staggeringly effective? Two highly active compnenets…Thymol and Carvacrol, which are anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant and anti-viral all rolled into one.
It can even be taken in soups and food by adults, but beware of the strong taste!
This is just one of many remedies I have used for more than 30 years, with no side effects…..and no need to see my doctor for the little maladies of winter!
I will be posting more soon…
