exploring february's natural remedies

Addressing health issues in February doesn't always necessitate a visit to the pharmacy. Discover remedies using everyday, natural ingredients to combat typical ailments during this transitional time of year.


Comforting Herbal Tea for Cold Relief: Prepare ginger tea by steeping ginger and lemon, in hot water for 10-15 minutes. Ginger's anti-inflammatory qualities can help alleviate throat irritation and clear congestion while the lemon provides a dose of vitamin C.

Homemade Cough Remedy: Create your own natural cough syrup by combining equal parts honey and lemon juice. Honey’s calming properties and the tangy nature of lemon combine powerfully to soothe coughs and relieve throat irritation. 

Moisturizing Dry Skin: If you're dealing with dry parched skin, here's a simple natural and cost effective solution. Put a teaspoon of fine table salt into a small bowl and add enough Zimms EVOO to make a thick paste. Softly massage this mixture into a patch of dry skin on your body for 5-10 minutes. Be gentle and allow the salt to slowly exfoliate and remove dead skin cells while the EVOO hydrates. Wash off the mixture and enjoy your reinvigorated smooth and hydrated skin.

Relieving Sinus Congestion: Boil water in a pot then carefully transfer it to a bowl. Add a few drops of eucalyptus and peppermint oil. Cover your head with a towel and slowly inhale the steam. This method has been proven to ease sinus congestion and headaches.
