Using Essential Oils To Effectively Relieve Colds
A special thanks to Venta Airwasher for providing the Miss Frugal Mommy blog with their product for free in exchange for an honest review!
I picked my oldest daughter up from school on Monday and as she approached me, I knew immediately that she wasn’t feeling herself. Sure enough she was experiencing the first stages of a cold and ended up staying home from school the following day. By Wednesday morning my five year old woke up with a runny nose and cough, and then my one year old woke up this morning with the same symptoms. There is no doubt about it, with cooler weather comes cold and flu season. No parent enjoys seeing their child suffer with a cold and while our first initial thought may be to give them medicine, there are a handful of natural ways to relieve the symptoms. In our home we love using essential oils to effectively relieve colds. A safe, natural and popular way to make the air in your home a healing tool!
Venta Aromatherapy line has finally arrived. There are now six fragrance options (four ALL-NEW scents), each made from 100% natural, essential oils. Each package of Venta Aromatherapy comes with three 1.7 oz. bottles of fragrance for $19.99. The fragrances in the Venta Aromatherapy line are the ONLY oils tested and approved for use in the Venta Airwasher. Check out the list of amazing oils available:
Relaxing-A stimulating blend of cinnamon, cassia, carnation and grapefruit that helps you unwind after a long day.
Citrus Garden-An invigorating and refreshing fragrance made from fresh orange zest.
Eucalyptus-A comforting blend of eucalyptus, peppermint & tea plant oils that’s soothing during the cold & flu season.
Winter Dream-Let the fragrance of cinnamon warm you on cold winter nights.
Vanilla-A blend of vanilla & citrus that makes any place smell like home.
Refreshing-An invigorating & stimulating citrus blend made from real fruit zest.
Essential oils can also assist in the prevention of contracting the dreaded viruses that cause colds in several different ways. Using essential oils such as Eucalyptus can help deter the growth of viruses during the cooler months when most of us are indoors and windows are kept shut (limiting the amount of fresh air circulation.) Essential oils can be diffused in order to cleanse and purify the air with popular products such as the Venta Airwasher. We use this airwasher on a daily basis (for several months now) and it has been an effective way to diffuse essential oils in our home.
Using the new Aromatherapy line from Venta is so incredibly easy! Simply open the top of your Venta Airwasher, make sure the base is full of water, fill a cap full of your favorite essential oil, then pour into base. Turn the Venta Airwasher onto your desired speed and you are now one step closer to helping your family with cold season! I can always recognize a significant difference in my children’s comfort level when we diffuse eucalyptus, their cold symptoms become much less severe. The scent is not at all overwhelming and is just a faint odor in the air… a pleasant odor that is! The greatest part about defusing this oil in the air is that I am helping my children’s symptoms AND preventing myself from getting sick (because taking care of sick kids while sick is no fun at all.) There are so many amazing health benefits, you truly have nothing to lose! So make sure you are keeping the air clean and healthy this winter during cold and flu season with the Venta Aromatherapy line!
