There has been a virus going around causing nausea. My husband felt it today. I gave him a cup of peppermint tea with ginger in it, a drop of peppermint essential oil on his stomach and a bowl of chicken soup. He felt better this afternoon. Wow, is that simple? Of course there are no guarantees , but with viruses essential oils can be a great help as they have anti-viral properties, anti-bacterial, and antiseptic qualities. They also enhance mood, energy and help the body to build immunity.  Peppermint also reduces fever besides being good for anything stomach related.

So when you think” who gave this to me?  so and so was just sick”.. or” I need to call the doctor”  reach for the simple remedies from nature and be practical. Drink liquids, refrain from eating for a day, drink tea, use your essential oils and sit down to rest.

Is this Ayurveda? you bet it is….

If you don’t have essential oils on hand I recommend  ordering Young Living Oils as they are therapeutic grade and order the ones you are drawn to. Go to www.gedaliahhealingarts.com under services tab, essential oils to order. There are some recommendations there for Vata, Pitta and Kapha as well.

With the unknown viruses we may encounter , I remind you to make essential oils your friend. They are the only substances that can pass the blood/brain barrier enabling them to make real change in our bodies and minds. I’ve used them for over 25 years and they were gems in raising children.

Nature’s gifts….

Enjoy your week! Remember the abundance around you.. and be grateful.
