Use this blend in a warm bath where it will help reduce the aches and pains that typically accompany the flu with an added benefit of helping reduce congestion and stuffiness.
Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica) and Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) are antiviral and stimulates the immune system and helps loosen and remove mucus. Marjoram (Origanum marjorana) and Lavender (Lavendulan Angustifolia) help reduce aches and pains and bringing a calming and sedative state which may be very welcome at this stage of the flu.
Note: Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) is good for relieving achy muscles and adds a nice complement to the blend. Because essential oils are volatile compounds that evaporate quickly, adding them to the water after shutting off the tap allows for the most significant benefit.
