In the heat of Covid-19, I want to share one of our best tools for staying healthy. Using essential oils on your body can be a really effective immunity booster and I always couple it with diffusing. Keeping the air healthy in your high-traffic areas (bedroom, living room, office, play room) is a powerful defense during flu season.
Wash your hands, purify your lungs and keep a positive mindset. Since we are all spending a bit more time in our homes, it is a natural time to create some new rituals and intentions around our daily acts. These days, I am taking pointed care of my lungs and respiratory health.
The question of essential oil authenticity is not a new issue. Passing synthetic oils off as “natural” has been going on ever since synthetic scents were created in the late 1800s. Today, all marketers know, consumers desire clean, natural and pure products. The desire to live a healthy life has more and more consumers reading labels, hunting down 100% natural products. There’s a huge loophole in FDA cosmetic labeling laws. It allows cosmetic companies to label synthetic oils as essential oils.
Many of us are braving the petri dishes that are trains, planes, automobiles this year. Travel can lower our immunity for any number of reasons: lack of sleep, stress, eating a diet comprised primarily of red wine and sugar cookies, you name it. Transit hubs are contact points for inspiration and excitement, but also germs.
