This week myself and Benjamin have been hit by what I think was a type of stomach flu. I have found that I have reached for my collection of essential oils. They are my little friends and in a crisis I do tend to reach for them more. We started with ‘magical’ peppermint oil administered in the form of a daily massage; mainly on the stomach area, which helped to reduce the nausea.
Benjamin has had aromatherapy massage since birth!! He tends to ask for more massages when he is feeling poorly. I wonder if this is because it helps him feel better. Like it does me too!!!
To reduce diarrhoea and stomach cramps I created a blend using marjoram and thyme both of these herbs have antibacterial and antiviral calmatives, which is why I feel as though his symptoms were better on the second day.
I was really enjoying and was one of the only tea’s I could cope with was ginger chai. The calming effects of cinnamon, fennel seed, ginger, black peppercorns and cardamom really helped me to feel more like ‘me’ again.
I don’t want to make any guarentees or try to sell you any products that I would not use myself. shop
