Honestly if it wasn’t for Pinterest and some of the great ideas I have found there … well I would be at a loss. Example: the little guy has been dealing with a cold that is just killing us both at night. He can’t breathe or nurse and I am up constantly making sure he is ok. The other day while browsing through Pinterest I happened upon this pin about Eucalyptus oil.
“Interesting: No sinus infections in the house for years. When we get stuffed up we get relief in under a minute, and it doesnt settle or move into the chest. Inhale it from the bottle, or put a few drops on a tissue or cotton swab to carry around/ sleep with. When it is all of us I put 20 drops or so with a cup or 2 of water and simmer on the stove for a few hours. That also prevents colds from spreading(anitbacterial and antiviral). One person I know puts it in her vacuum when she vacuums.”
Well today we stopped by the Herb shop and picked some up. OMG! It works! I’ve let the little guy sniff from the bottle after we bought it and he immediately tried to sniff some more since he realized he could breathe. Tonight I dabbed a few drops on a cloth and laid it at the head of his bed… he went down as if nothing was wrong and breathing normally. I would have NEVER thought to used Eucalyptus oil for re-leaving sinus issues …. all that matters now is It works and Mama is happy!
