APOTHECARY: Chest Rub For Cold & Flu Symptoms

Keeping with a January theme, as much as it is about detox, it can also be about keeping well. With so many people suffering with cold and flu viruses this time of the year, I thought I would give you a very simple blend for you to apply to your back and chest each day which may help with cold and flu symptoms.

This oil can be applied just at night or twice a day to your chest, back and also pulse points too if you like.

What you will need:

1 x amber glass bottle

30ml Sweet Almond Oil

20ml Arnica Oil

10ml Vitamin E Oil

3 drops Frankincense Essential oil

3 drops Lime Essential oil

2 drops Eucalyptus Essential oil

Put all the ingredients into the glass bottle and shake well.

Apply this blend as and when necessary. This can also be used in the bath as a bath oil. The Frankincense can help boost the immune system, the lime may help with any respiratory problems and the eucalyptus can help clear your chest. If you prefer, you can always swap the lime essential oil for tea tree to help kill any germs.

Thanks so much for reading,
