Your mind and body need to rest when you’re unwell and with the help of this guide, you can combat cold or flu symptoms with more ease.

Firstly, did you know that adding a few drops of essential oil to your pillow before bed can help improve your sleep and therefore, aid in cold and flu prevention? This is because by getting a better night's sleep you’re in fact supporting your immune system.

2. Steam Inhalation: There are two steam inhalation methods that you can implement to help relieve yourself from cold and flu symptoms. The first method is to add a tablespoon or more of carrier oil and 6-10 drops of essential oils into your bathwater for relief. The second method is to add 2-4 drops of essential oils into a bowl of hot water. From there, place a towel over your head and breathe in the steam while it builds up around you. Escents' Breathe Easy Synergy Blend has been formulated to specifically help fight respiratory infections. It is blended with eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils.
