How to Vaporize The Flu
It’s nearly that time when those around you start sneezing, sniffing and coughing. Then, the fever and days of body aches, nausea and other unpleasantness. Yep, it’s flu season.
Because influenza spreads so easily from person to person it is a annual threat at this time of year.
One of the best ways to avoid all this nasty mess, is to start purifying and disinfecting your home now. With your herbal vaporizer and a blend of oils that are pleasing to your senses, you can protect yourself from sickness and breeze through flu season.
Eucalyptus is King
The undisputed king of natural cold and flu remedies is Australia’s native Eucalyptus.
When choosing among different grades of eucalyptus oils, look for one in the Eucalyptus globulus family. This amazing plant first used by native Australians has antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, pathogenic, and respiratory applications.
It’s a one-oil powerhouse that protects you from the flu and alleviates a host of flu-season symptoms including:
To maximize the effect of vaporized eucalyptus, it’s important to start it at the earliest sign of influenza. Even better, vape a few hours a day with the oil as a preventative.
Not a fan of Eucalyptus? You’re in luck. While it’s the most popular preventative and remedy recommended for flus and colds, there are other vaporizing options that work just as well and offer a variety of aromatic options.
Here are three alternatives. The blends can be made at home and use to purify your environment, fight off infection and sooth early symptoms. Once mixed, store your blend in a dark glass container. For a standard home vaporizer, use about 10 drops per vape session. These options, including Eucalyptus, can also be rubbed on the body to alleviate soreness and disinfect the skin.
Tea Tree Oil
Like Eucalyptus, Tea Tree Oil is royalty in the realm of vaporizing remedies. Ten drops of this oil in your vaporizer at night disinfects your area and can help sooth dry air passages.
