Essential Oil Favorites
Because the flu often attacks the respiratory system in particular, I would turn first to my old standbys of Aspire and Breezey. But when things get worse, Mariah and Stephanie are the hard hitters! I use Deliverance on a daily basis, but when colds and flu are going around I rub some on my hands and then cup them over my face and breathe deeply to get it into my lungs and bronchial tubes. I do this especially when I'm on an airplane because you never know what germs are traveling through that confined space.
Life Force provides great protection against environmental elements, and I love Revitalize for supporting the lymph system and increasing inner strength. Inside Out is what I reply on for any digestive issues.
Blessed Waters carry names that have to be decoded. :-) Think of them like you would homeopathic remedies. I find them to be more helpful with health issues than just about anything else! In a nutshell, they are highly diluted substances that send signals to the brain to set healing in motion.
I use many different remedies and have made homeopathy a personal study. If you are interested in learning more, I recommend the Joette Calabrese Blog (https://joettecalabrese.com/category/blog/) and also Diane Timofay's 4-week course called Homeopathy Made Simple. Butterfly Express also has its own two books on homeopathic remedies.
The main remedies I'm focusing on for the 2020 flu onslaught are shown below (with the potencies I generally use). It takes a little learning to know how to best use homeopathic remedies, but I use the 30c potencies twice a day (just a few drops) and the 200 once a day when symptoms are present. Stop using when symptoms diminish. These are just general guidelines that could get you started while you are learning more about remedies. It's a process!
Arsenica Album 30c - general flu
Bryonia 30c - coughs and respiratory
Gelsemium Sempervirens 30c - general flu
Nux Vomica 200 - vomiting and digestive problems
You can search for and buy these at my Butterfly Express discount website. Be sure to read Learning with LaRee next to the products you are considering.
Arsenica Album and Gelsemium have been in the news lately as remedies that are being used against the COVID-19 coronavirus. In many other countries homeopathic remedies are already a standard, but they are catching on more and more in the U.S.
Gelsemium proved to be very helpful during the Spanish flu of 1918, along with Byronia.
I can't really explain how the BE codes work, but here are some of the names with their counterparts to help you catch on:
Arsenica Album (BASRSENICALBUMC)
Diarrhea #1 (BDCIARRH1)
Eupatorium Perfoliatum (BESUPATPERFC)
Gelsemium Sempervirens (BGSELSEMIUMSEMPC)
Veratrum Album (BVSERATALBC)
Tinctures are concentrated herbal concoctions - a great way to get the vitamins and minerals you need from a natural, whole food source.
Some of my favorite tinctures are IF (infection fighter), BP (blood pressure), Min (Minerals), and WC (wild cherry cough syrup) -- all available from Butterfly Express.
