So since basically everyone I know is sick right about now I wanted to share some essential oil blends that I know work really well for me when I'm fighting a cold. I originally read about these in "The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherepy".
Here are five different methods and blends for when you're feeling under the weather with a common cold.
