19. Ginger, lemon, melaleuca
It’s that time of year again. You and your family are starting to come home with sniffles and snuffles. If you or your loved ones appear to be coming down with a cold or flu, try diffusing some ginger, lemon and melaleuca (tea tree) essential oils. They’ve all been shown to kill harmful pathogens (such as those associated with the common cold) and simultaneously help you breathe easier. Sprinkle in two drops of lemon, one drop of ginger and two drops of melaleuca.
