Beat the cold, naturally!

Beat the Cold Naturally

‘Tis the season for colds and flu & we’ve got you covered at Daisy Blue.

According to Mayo Clinic, symptoms of a common cold usually appear one to three days after exposure to the cold-causing virus. Unless symptoms worsen, it is recommended to let the virus run its course.
Although you need to let the cold and flu viruses run their course you can help speed up your healing time by doing these simple steps:
  1. Stay hydrated. Double your water intake during this time.
  2. Drink warm fluids.
  3. Get 8 hours, minimum, of sleep every night. This is the time to take it easy.
  4. Cut dairy, gluten, & processed foods.
  5. Use aromatherapy.
  6. Use natural vitamin and mineral supplements, including Vitamin D, B-complex, Magnesium, and Vitamin C.
  7. Drink elderberry syrup or tonics.

Why Relief Therapeutic Oil and Rollerball?

Let’s look at what makes our Relief products work and how you can best use these two products in your healing.

The essential oil blend developed by Daisy Blue Naturals, plays a role in its effectiveness. By using the following essential oils at just the right concentration for each created a holistic healing powerhouse. What makes each of these essential oils right for you?

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptol is what gives this oil its therapeutic benefits. It is the ingredient found in most cough drops and mouthwashes. It controls mucous production in the body and is an effective treatment for the common cold.
Sweet Orange
Anti-inflammatory and aids in respiratory infections, indigestion, muscle soreness, and is calming.
Peppermint
Soothes digestion & adds in reducing nausea, headaches, muscle aches, infections, and reduces fever.
Lavender
Helps with respiratory, circulatory, and muscular conditions. Lavender is very relaxing as well, and will help with insomnia, nausea, and headaches.
Camphor
Works as a decongestant and cough suppressant. Most effective in relieving night cough and sleep difficulty.
What about Vicks Vapor Rub? Although it may give some comfort and relief, it contains 3 ingredients we say ‘stay away’ from!
  1. Man-made Camphor from turpentine oil.
  2. Petrolatum – from gasoline.
  3. Fragrance – synthetic.
Education is the key to making an informed decision and Daisy Blue is here to help you along the way!
