Sniff Your Stuffy Nose Away!

Today, I have a cold.  Well, 'tis the season.  Stuffy nose!  Our office has been using
a variety of essential oils to treat "well-being" and to treat common ailments too.
I have Gold-Medal Winner!  Peppermint and Eucalyptus oils to relieve a stuffy nose.


My colleague, Keri, handed me a tissue with 3 drops of peppermint oil and 3 drops of Eucalyptus oil on it.  I sniffed the tissue, breathed in and out twice, and had IMMEDIATE  relief-- an unstuffed nose with comfortable breathing.
I repeated this action in a half hour, again in an hour, and again several hours later.
Wonderful smell too.

Check out these great essential oils in our store!
