Natural Remedies for the winter season
The cooler months mean snuggly pjs, piping hot chocolate, a great time to guard our immunity!
There's a lot to love about winter time - nights in with the family, a toasty fire, snuggly pyjamas and hot chocolate, and an ideal time to focus on our immunity. I actually like to help guard my immune system as much as possible with natural home remedies by taking natural supplements, drink special organic teas and make use of essential oils, but I recommend checking with your health care practitioner or medical professional if you have any concerns about illnesses in your family.
Ideal Natural supplements for winter
One of our popular supplements is the Kiwiherb Immuneguard, this immunity guard fluid contains a blend of natural ingredients including Manuka Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, Peppermint, Liquorice and Orange and Lemon designed to help guard your immune system. Certified organic, gluten free and vegan, it can be diluted in water daily. Use only as directed. Always read the label.
Fusion Health Cold & Flu Tablets
Another great supplement is the Fusion Health Cold & Flu Tablets, which are designed to help fight cold and flu symptoms and support long-term immune health. These Australian made, gluten free, nut free and vegan tablets contain a herbal blend of Magnolia Flower, Honeysuckle, Platycodon and Echinacea to help soothe symptoms such as excessive mucus, sore throat, muscle aches, chills and fever.
Weleda Cold & Flu Pilules
Ideal taken as soon as you start to feel a cold coming on, the Weleda Cold & Flu Pilules are designed to target common symptoms. This herbal blend combinies Aconite, Eucalyptus and Sabadilla. To use, allow 15 pilules to dissolve under your tongue every two hours. Also suitable for children - check with your health care professional before use.
If congestion is really getting you down, I recommend the Kiwiherb De-Stuff. Formulated specifically to help ease congestion, this soothing herbal blend contains Ribwort, Elderflower, Echinacea and Peppermint in a base of Organic Apple Juice concentrate for a deliciously pleasant taste. A tingling or numbing sensation can actually occur in the mouth immediately after taking this due to the potency of the Echinacea - this is totally normal! This is certified organic, gluten free and vegan, and can be taken daily diluted in water. Use only as directed. Always read the label.
Essential oils for blocked nose
Black Chicken Remedies Nasalette™ Essential Oil Inhaler - Respire
A favourite essential oil blend of mine for helping with congestion is the Black Chicken Remedies Nasalette™ Essential Oil Inhaler - Respire, which I actually keep in my handbag and by my bedside during winter for easy use as it contains a potent blend of stimulating, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory oils including Peppermint, Lemongrass, Ginger and Eucalyptus. Designed to help clear the nose and provide a boost, this natural personal inhaler is used by being placed below each nostril while you breathe in deeply. It's also totally refillable with the matching Black Chicken Remedies Respire Essential Oil Blend.
Little Innoscents - Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend
Try using an essential oil blend to help you breathe that bit easier. I love adding the Little Innoscents - Breathe Easy Essential Oil Blend to a diffuser or even putting a few drops in the bath to help clear congested airways as it contains refreshing Eucalyptus, Lemon, Spearmint, Peppermint and Tea Tree Oils to help open up nasal passages.
Natural tea for winter
Pukka Tea - Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honey
One of my favourite warming teas for winter season is the Pukka Tea - Lemon, Ginger and Manuka Honey. This delicious tea contains a spicy blend of zesty Lemon, Ginger and Turmeric as well as sweet Manuka Honey, and is perfect for soothing sore or scratchy throats and clearing a blocked nose.
