My 5 goto cough and cold essential oils diffuser blends

My 5 goto cough and cold essential oils diffuser blends

Happy hump day everyone. I hope you all are having a wonderful week. The last few days I have felt a cold coming on. You know, when you’re having a bit harder time breathing, or the occasional sneezing, or when you wake up and your throat is so sore it feels like you swallowed a razor blade! Yup that’s about how I feel.

I decided that it was time to pull out my handy cough and cold essential oils diffuser blends list. To mix up my special night-time blend (the last blend) so I can wake up feeling better tomorrow. It hasn’t failed me yet. I am sure it’s not going to fail me tonight!

I have also decided its time to share them with my friends, with you! So here you go:

These are My 5 goto cough and cold essential oils blends I use in my 300ml essential oil diffuser when I am coming down with a cough or cold.

    Hi, just mixed up a blend of your special night time diffuser recipe. Going to try it out this evening. I’ve have been using the diffuser at night just for sleep, but this will be the first time I’ve used a blend for cough or cold.

    • First of all I hope you feel better soon. Let me know how the blend works for you. Thanks for commenting

  • Rose Schrock

    This seems like a lot of oils at one time–I usually only use 6-8 drops at a time. Do you have a larger diffuser?
