April's Natural Remedes

As spring blossoms in April so do opportunities to explore natural remedies for certain health issues related to this time of year. From allergies triggered by pollen to our bodies adjusting to transitioning from cold to warmer weather, there are certain holistic approaches using ingredients from nature that can support your well being.


Allergy Relief Nettle Tea: Brew a soothing cup of nettle tea to naturally combat spring allergies. Nettles are known for their natural antihistamine properties, helping to alleviate sneezing, itching, and other allergy symptoms. Steep dried nettle leaves in hot water for 10 minutes, strain, and enjoy daily for relief.

Revitalizing Lemon & Honey Water: To support immune function and hydration as temperatures rise, start your day with a glass of warm water mixed with the juice of 1/4 lemon and a teaspoon of honey. This simple tonic aids in digestion, boosts the immune system with vitamin C, and helps balance the body's pH levels.

EVOO & Turmeric Anti-Inflammatory Drink: Combat inflammation and boost your antioxidant intake with a golden turmeric and olive oil drink. Mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder, a tablespoon of Zimms Organics HEAL Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a pinch of black pepper (to enhance turmeric absorption), and honey to taste in warm water. This drink is particularly beneficial after outdoor activities to reduce muscle soreness and support recovery.

Soothing Aloe Vera Skin Gel: With more time spent outdoors, skin can become irritated by the sun and wind. Aloe vera gel, applied directly from the plant to the skin, can soothe sunburns, moisturize, and heal small abrasions, making it a spring skincare essential. You can also blend aloe into your favorite smoothie for a healthy digestive aid.

Refreshing Peppermint Foot Soak: After a day of spring gardening or long walks enjoying the blossoming nature, treat your feet to a peppermint foot soak. Fill a basin with warm water, add a handful of Epsom salts, and a few drops of peppermint essential oil. The peppermint soothes and refreshes tired feet, while the Epsom salts reduce swelling and detoxify.

As April brings warmer weather and blossoming nature, it's essential to consider our health. By incorporating these remedies we address seasonal wellness concerns effectively whilst embracing a lifestyle that values well being and harmony with nature. Let the revitalizing vibes of April motivate you to explore these holistic approaches to health and happiness.
