Tip of the month for December 2010
To prevent coughs and colds spreading add some drops of eucalyptus essential oil to a burner or onto a damp cotton pad and place on a hot radiator. The vapour kills airborne germs. Top up when aroma has evaporated.
Otherwise healthy people with colds can also add a drop or two of eucalyptus essential oil to a massage base oil and rub it onto your chest. It is effective combined with lavender essential oil.
