Herbs Around Home for Some Christmas Time Relaxation



A Quick Refresher on some Common Household Ingredients...

Eucalyptus isn't just what Koala Bears eat, it's a great decongestent & sinus aid. Add a few drops of the essential oil to your next bath & enjoy! It also has anti bacterial properties.

Peppermint is the key ingredient in delicious candy canes, but it also acts as a digestive aid & muscle relaxant & is jolly nice in a cup of tea when splashed with a touch of real maple syrup or local honey.

Cloves promote digestion & help to regulate body temperature. So go ahead & sprinkle some atop your eggnog this Christmas or in your stovetop rum!

Cinnamon has traditionally been used for sore throats & as a mild anti inflammatory among other purposes. It smells welcoming & festive simmering on the stove... just add a few cinnamon sticks to a pot of water.

Lavender has been used for centuries as a multi-purpose herbal remedy, and does appear to have antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsive, & anti-depressant properties. It's easy to grow & makes excellent pot pouri!

Lemon Balm is best known for its calming properties & appears to have properties that inhibit bacteria and viruses.
