Cure a case of the sniffles—naturally
Cool weather makes you more vulnerable to viruses. To fight back, pump moisture into your airspace.
The reason: Viruses that spark colds and flu thrive when it's cool and dry. Low humidity dries out nasal passages, making it harder to trap and eliminate the microbugs. Help moisten passages by running a humidifier 24/7—but keep it clean per the manufacturer's instructions. I add five drops of oregano, eucalyptus, or peppermint oil to my humidifier's reservoir to reduce germs and freshen the air. (A whiff of peppermint can also soothe stress.)
A steamy 15-minute bath or shower helps, too. Drip 10 drops of essential oil into the tub or onto a washcloth placed on the shower floor. Breathe in deeply. (Get more ingredients for a blissful bath,here.)
The best essential oils for easy colds:
Peppermint: Relieves headaches caused by congestion
Eucalyptus: Decongestant; soothes respiratory problems
Oregano: Proven antibacterial; fights sinus infections
