My sisters and I all caught a bug during our vacation. I’m loads better now; seems like I only got sick in sympathy with them!
As tribute to our illness, I found this neat tip to help ease the sniffles, care of Care2.
Air fresheners and disinfectants are no-no’s for good quality indoor air (see Green Living at Care2 for more). But, hark, listen to this: The therapeutic effects of diffused essential oils on the respiratory system are especially helpful during the cold and flu season because the diffused oils destroy airborne bacteria in the home. By using a diffuser, it is possible to dispense a therapeutic aromatherapy treatment to a number of people simultaneously.
