I’m a total Caloweenie (California weenie) when it comes to winter. Like, ‘brrrrrr I need to hibernate’ weenie. I don’t hate it but I just loveeee being warm + would much rather be soakin’ up the sun on the beach in a bikini. Thankfully Southern California winters aren’t that bad.
This one time, I moved to Nebraska (Yea, GENIUS idea huh?) + I about died because it was so cold.
Anyways, back to cold + flu season. Wahhwahh. It seems that everyone + their mother is constantly sick during the fluson (flu season) + I do my best to stay away. I’m one of those people that avoids shaking hands at all costs + if I am forced to shake hands with someone, I book it (think speed lightning fast) to the bathroom to scrub-a-dub as soon as they’ve walked away. Or I slather myself with hand sanitizer.
BUT…we all aren’t perfect + sometimes I forget to wash my hands enough times in the day to get rid of all the germs I’ve touched. Those nasty little guys are everywhereee.
That’s where Oregano Oil comes to the rescue. It’s seriously my hero. This stuff is killer when it comes to bringing you back from your cold/flu death bed. I like to take 4-5 drops about 4 times a day until my symptoms have disappeared. I mix mine with a little warm water in a shot glass + pretend I’m taking shots instead of trying not to die (being totally dramatic here). If you take it alone, it will cause a burning sensation in your throat. I don’t suggest trying it.
Oregano Oil has extremely high levels of free-radical crushing antioxidants + can help in a multitude of ways. Not only is it great for the common cold/flu but it is also used to fight nasty infections, protect against harmful organisms, aid in digestion and menstruation, fight allergies, aid in weight loss + ease discomfort from arthritis, backaches + carpal tunnel.
Now that’s the stuff I want slaying my colds- not some freakish cold medicine made by humans in a laboratory. That fake stuff doesn’t heal you, it simply alleviates your symptoms for a small period of time. LAME! Sooo with that being said, put the good stuff into your body.
Anyone else share my love for this? Or have another natural remedy they use to rid their sickies? My dad swears by a couple chewable Vitamin C in his ginormous glass of champagne, hah! I’ll admit that I do use this as an excuse to drink more champagne. I. LOVE. CHAMPAGNE. I so am my father’s daughter♥
Hope everyone stays healthy this fluson! xx
