What is a cold?

The common cold is a virus infection of the upper respiratory tract (the nose and throat). There are at least 30 different strains of virus that can cause cold symptoms. While the mucous membranes of the nose and throat are inflamed as a result of the infection, they are far more vulnerable to attack by bacteria, and this can give rise to secondary infections, such as sinusitis, ear infections and bronchitis, which can be more serious than the original cold.

Most useful essential oils if you suffer from a cold

Fortunately, there are quite a number of essential oils that can help you to diminish the discomfort of a cold, and to reduce the risk of secondary infections. This is due to the fact that the oils themselves are bactericidal and because they stimulate the body's own ability to fight off infection.

  • Best oils are Lavender, Eucalyptus, Ti-tree.
  • Peppermint and Rosemary can also be used.
  • Thyme is especially valuable for sore throats.

Use

The two most useful methods of use are inhalations and baths. A steam inhalation with appropriate essential oils combines several beneficial effects. It clears the congested nasal passages and soothes the inflamed mucous membrane. At the same time, the essential oils will kill many bacteria, and some of the oils, especially Eucalyptus and Ti-tree, have an inhibiting effect on the cold virus.

Recommendations

On the morning/beginning of the afternoon, use Eucalyptus, Ti-tree, Rosemary or Peppermint. These are stimulating oils.

At the end of afternoon or in the evening, use Lavender, which is sedative and will help you sleep.
