Battling the Flu

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well so far. It’s the first day of March, which means Spring is on its way! We’ve made a few “spring cleaning” changes to our site, as you may have noticed, and we have a few in progress behind the scenes.

We’ve also come across a few cases of the flu here at Honest Aromas in the past week. As I shared last week, my son Dorian had to stay home from school for a few days. One of his teachers also came down with flu-like symptoms, as well as Hannah, who nursed a bad cold over the weekend. It seems like every time the seasons change, there’s a new round of illness. Sometimes this isn’t always related to overall health (although that certainly is a factor), but extra stress and busyness can play a part as well. There’s so much value in pacing yourself and resting!

Some of our own creations are also incredibly helpful when it comes to battling the flu. I sent our Tea Tree Gargle and Allergy and Congestion Rub to Dorian’s teacher, and Hannah also used these powerhouse products. They work great to kill germs, clear respiratory passages, and heal what’s left behind!

Hannah also diffused different combinations of Peppermint, German Chamomile, and Lavender in her new diffuser. The Peppermint was great for the daytime – because it’s a menthol, it’s amazing for air passages – while the Lavender and Chamomile were soothing and healing at night.

So there are just a few ways to fight that nagging flu! We hope you are having a healthy end of winter and would love to help you achieve that goal! Send us an email or give us a call if you have any questions. We want to hear from you!

We Improved Our Allergy Blend! But Wait – There’s Myrrh…

One of our most popular products is our Allergy and Congestion Blend – an earthy mixture of unscented lotion with Cedarwood, Lemon, and Ginger. It has helped clients with a variety of issues, from allergic reactions to bronchitis to seasonal colds!

We perfected the recipe, swapping out the ginger to include one of the oldest essential oils in human history: myrrh!

Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha), according to the Aromatic Wisdom Institute, is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal. It helps relieve pain and regenerate the skin. It decongests and warms the body, making it perfect for respiratory issues.

Myrrh is usually  non-toxic and non-irritating, but I do caution pregnant and breastfeeding mothers to avoid it, as its chemical components can be toxic to infants.
