Booster ses défenses naturelles avec l’aromathérapie

In spite of all the advice we can follow to keep our health, it is sometimes not easy to fight against external disorders such as pesticides or any other disturbance that prevent us from living our balance fully. The microbes then take advantage of this opportunity to get in and create a cozy nest. They often thrive in the winter months and like to visit us in a rather insidious way. They sometimes do not hesitate to impose themselves and stay a few weeks longer.

Spring has finally arrived and yet there are still many of us with a handkerchief in one hand and a tea of thyme with honey in the other. The winter almost failed us and the frost forgot to kill all the germs harmful to our well being. It's time to react and take full advantage of this new season that is offered to us. So let's take matters into our own hands naturally and clean up this infected area with aromatherapy, a branch of phytotherapy that has very interesting virtues if you want to treat yourself naturally. Essential oils have been used for centuries, as proven by the discovery of a still dating back to 5000 years before our era. The Egyptians then followed by embalming their dead with essential oils such as incense, nard, myrrh, cinnamon, etc. Proof that these little bottles are real energy concentrates present to help the body fight against parasites.

The essential oil of Ravintsara - from its Latin name Cinnamomum Camphora - is one of the most widely used oils when it comes to immunity and natural defenses.

If the flu still assails you, have the reflex to apply 3 drops in massage in the lower back, along the spine and on the thorax. To avoid contamination in the community, you can also diffuse a mixture of Ravintsara, Lemon and Eucalyptus Radié in equal parts in a suitable diffuser.
