Some handy winter wellness ideas to try

Winter is a time to look after ourselves, but sometimes we dont get ahead as much as we could. This year I did a 6 week gut cleanse leading up to winter and have felt much stronger in myself (not to mention sniffle free as I’m avoiding dairy).
Here’s a few fast, low cost DIY was to make natural wellness remedies or preventative tools for you and the family. Note- do not ingest essential oils unless they are labelled safe to do so. I only use and recommend doTERRA oils myself.

//PREVENTATIVE//

Flu-bomb spray

Use topically at the first sign of symptoms or several times a week during the winter months for preventative support. Consider making an OnGuard topical roller for your handbag too!

Daily morning wellness tea

I drink this most mornings after yoga but before eating.

DIY Foaming hand soap

Easy to make as you can see and gets rid of germs quickly without chemicals, plus it smells great!

If I’m pressed for time I also use the doTERRA foaming hand-soap concentrate and 1/4 fill the foaming handpump bottle, then top up with water.

// REACTIVE REMEDIES//

DIY Soothing throat syrup

Both fast to make and effective!

Add 1Tbs to hot water with fresh lemon or lime and drink as often as needed until symptoms shift. Can also take straight off a spoon for fast throat relief. Also consider diffusing / topical use of oils as appropriate.
