Maintaining your health during the Christmas period can be challenging. Tis the season to be jolly, after all, and time to let yourself go! Christmas parties and regular events bring their own challenges. Over-eating, late nights and sometimes drinking a little too much are all part of the lead up to Christmas. How can you manage these challenges and maintain your healthy and pure lifestyle? As we always say, there’s an oil for that.
Here are a few ideas!
Healthy Immune System
The changing seasons brings an onslaught of environmental threats. To help protect against seasonal threats and support healthy immune function, diffuse doTERRA On Guard in your home. There are many great doTERRA On Guard products to aid in supporting healthy immune function. A few oils to use to help promote clear breathing include Eucalyptus and Peppermint oil. Apply over the chest, add to steamy bathwater, or diffuse at night to aid in promoting feelings of open airways. Be careful to dilute both Eucalyptus and Peppermint for skin sensitivity.
Getting Ready For Your Party
Try one or two drops of Peppermint under your tongue for fresh breath. Diffuse doTERRA Motivate to feel the calming and uplifting benefits of citrus and mint oils.
