We all know the simple things that keeps you healthy. You need to be sure that you are getting enough rest, eating healthy and exercising Especially through the winter when colds and flu are everywhere.
I always get a flu shot and this year I did get my covid shot and booster. I’m sixty-five and figured that most of the “unknowns” really didn’t apply to me. If I was a mom with young children, I wouldn’t have them vaccinated. I feel that children can build their own immunity. When I was a child and the chicken pox came around, we would invite all the cousins and run it through the house! So, what essential oils could you add to your arsenal to make this winter healthy and happier! Remember you never apply essential oils to you skin. You need to use a carrier oil, like grapeseed or put it in a spray bottle and just add water. I like this method a lot because you can use it as room spray, linen spray, or body spray.
