This is a post about a super simple runny nose remedy with essential oils…that really works!! We use Shield, Lavender and Respire.
Snort. Sniff. Snorrrk. Sniff.
Sigh. One of the guys has a cold. And the drip/snort/snore is not pretty, nor is it letting any of us get sleep.
I found this recipe… in my brain. LOL It was born out of the brain of a desperate woman attempting to get some sleep. Mucus is caused by your body’s reaction to inflammation. Your membranes get inflamed, your nose runs to cool them off. Simple biology, but such a pain.
Equal parts Shield, Lavender and Respire rubbed into the bottoms of the feet in layers. In about 15 minutes you’ll realize you’re not blowing and dripping any longer. You have to be consistent and get a good 4 or 5 rubs a day in, especially before bed. (So that your spouse/parent can get some sleep and be happy and chipper in the morning.)
