Welcome to my new go tool for when the enemy comes knocking with seasonal attacks -DIY Winter STEAMER SALTS for Cold and Flu- I love this so much! We already know how incredible breathing essential oils is for sinus and respiratory issues, but then-we add steam and it takes the healing power to a whole new level! But we're not done yet! This recipe adds the benefits of pure Epsom salts and baking soda to further help open airways, reduce inflammation, relieve body aches, detox, and calm your whole system.
The aroma of the Emerald Respiratory with the extra Peppermint, Eucalyptus R., and added Blue Yarrow was such an overwhelming surprise! Instead of medicinal, it smells like flowers blooming in a meadow in the middle of Winter in Switzerland...can you imagine that? It's truly GLORIOUS, and penetrates so deep to clear all the yuck. You will LOVE THIS!
I consider these oils and methods safe for children 8 years or older, for younger children you can make the same recipe using the Whole Child and Brainiac Kids blends together.
