Let’s ALL stay healthy this Fall!

It’s been a busy fall with adjustments to back-to-school plans, modified work schedules and coping with all the news stories.  Getting plenty of sleep, drinking lots of liquids and avoiding sugar helps to give our immune system a chance to stay strong.  Let’s give ourselves some grace, breath in, breath out… we got this!

Essential oils can help…

  • ward off illness or hasten recovery by boosting immunity
  • can ease many of the discomforts of the common cold when used in baths, chest rubs, compresses, and inhalants as well as in the diffuser.

Add a few drops of essential oils to:

  • a diffuser to clean the air
  • dilute in a carrier oil and add to steamy bathwater
  • a carrier oil, for massaging the head, neck or feet
  • a large bowl of hot water, for steam inhalation
  • hot or cold compresses

Dufferin Garden Centre carries essential oils from Earth Luxe, Finesse Home and Soulful Sister.
