Essential Oil Winter remedies:

For HAND CARE:

We ask them to be on duty 24/7, whether it’s raining, windy, freezing, or a heatwave, without looking after them. It’s no wonder that they are the first to show signs of ageing. It’s not too late to put things right.

RAPID HAND SCRUB

In a small bowl, mix 3 tbsp powdered French green clay and 10 drops lavender essential oil with a little warm water to make a thick paste. Apply this to the back of the hands once a week, rubbing it in with circular movements. Rinse in clean water.

PAMPERING HAND MASSAGE

Mix 10 drops lemon essential oil and 1 tsp macadamia carrier oil. Pour a little of the preparation into the palm of your hand, then warm it by rubbing your hands together.

Using the thumb of one hand, massage the palm of the other, pressing down firmly and working from the centre outwards. Now, take your wrist and massage the back of the hand, working towards the fingertips.

Finish by massaging each finger, one after the other, from the fingertips down to the wrist. Use this massage only at night, as lemon essential oil can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Do this for four minutes.

For COLD & FLU:

 

HEAD COLD

Apply 2 drops tea tree essential oil four times a day to the nostrils, throat, and chest area for two to three days.
Dilute 2 drops tea tree essential oil in 1⁄2 tsp honey, and let this melt in your mouth.
Do this four times a day for two to three days.

FLU

Mix 4 drops tea tree essential oil, 4 drops lemon essential oil, and 2 tsp macadamia carrier oil. Using 10 drops of this mixture, gently massage the neck, chest, and top of the back four times a day, until the symptoms subside.

GERM-FREE BEDCLOTHES – ANTI-FLU SPECIALIST

To avoid any risk of infection or germs spread by bedclothes, prepare this disinfecting solution by mixing 2 ml lemon essential oil with 1 ml rosemary cineole essential oil, and use it as follows. Soak the sheets, pillowcases, and nightclothes in warm water plus 10 drops of the essential oil solution for half an hour. Then launder them in the usual way, but add 4 to 5 drops of the solution to the fabric conditioner compartment. If washing by hand, add only 2 drops of the solution to the last rinse.

For BEING COSY AT HOME:

SLEEP-INDUCING PILLOWS

One small action can gain you a full night’s sleep. Pour 2 drops lavender essential oil onto each pillow before going to bed.

AIR FRESHENER

Mix 200 ml (63⁄4 fl oz) water, 200 ml (63⁄4 fl oz) Isopropyl alcohol 60%, and 30 drops lavender essential oil in a spray bottle. Shake before each use, and spray every morning after airing the room.

QUICK POT-POURRI

Take 2 limes and 3 clementines (organic if possible), and cut each of them in half. Stick 3 cloves in each of the halves. Place them in a pretty dish or in an empty fish bowl, then pour in 10 drops lemon essential oil. Put your pot-pourri close to a heat source, such as a fireplace, radiator, or in sunlight.
