Hey all, I'm getting over a cold and trying to get back on my feet.
We all know that the only "remedy" for a cold is rest and fluids while letting the thing run its course, but I figured that you guys probably have some great ideas for alleviating the symptoms or giving the body its best fighting chance to get back to 100% health. I thought it'd be nice to have a thread dedicated just to this purpose and a quick search did not find one. Its that time of year again...wouldn't it be nice to have one spot to gather up all the best potions and recipe ideas?
So feel free to share your favorite teas, soup recipes, salves, aromatherapy, bath salts, etc... whatever it is that you reach for first when you start to get the sniffles.
This time around, I went for Gyspy Cold Care tea from the store (elder, yarrow, peppermint, hyssop and assorted herbs for taste), chicken soup, and cranberry-orange muffins (I don't know why, but they sure hit the spot). I tried mixing up a EO blend to put in the diffuser but found it was too much and triggered some nausea.
