Have you ever walked into a get-together and someone hardly has a voice, walked into work and heard a coworker cough, or went to a public place and people are hacking all over the place? Yup, they are sick and well you are trying hard not to be. Let’s talk about 4 ways to arm yourself when you’re having to be around sick people.
4 To Dos When Someone Is Sick: Water
So when anyone is sick water should be the first thing we go to. It’s so good to help flush everything out since it helps us go to the restroom more. When we are out and about we try to always have our reusable water bottle on us. We have the Berkey we use at home as well as one for travel. The water tastes so good and it takes out all the unwanted or unneeded things in your water. When someone is sick a rule of thumb is to drink more water. No, it’s not something we want to do but it will help a ton.
Essential Oils Roller Ball
Now this one is a most and helps you almost right away. What you do is make a blend we call Cold + Flu Bomb. You have a 10ml glass roller ball. Put 2 drops Germ Fighter, 2 drops Tea Tree, 1 drop Oregano, and 1 drop Lemon fill the rest yup with fractionated coconut oil. Most essential oil rollerball blends people call for a ton of drops of each oil but that is totally not necessary. This picture shows the original amounts I used to put in a roller ball. I just leave it on there so I remember what to put in it. Roll this on your neck in the front and back, behind your ears, under your nose, and on your wrists. Do this every 3 to 4 hours.
Of course, bone broth has so many good things about it that it’s good for you to be having some every day if not multiple times a day. When someone around you is sick or you feel something coming on I would be having bone broth as much as possible. Yes, it is pricey and sometimes you talk yourself out of drinking it just because of the price. Do you want to be sick or be fine? Being sick and having to take off work will cost you more in the end so drink your bone broth ok? Put about half of the bag of bone broth in a saucepan on your stove top, add a tablespoon of butter, and sprinkle in a good amount of salt. Once you start drinking this you will be hooked. All these products can be found at whole food as well.
Propolis Throat Spray
Lastly, is the best throat spray in the world. Like I use this stuff every day and double up around sick people. So when I know we are going to be out and about a put about 4 sprays in my mouth before we leave just for extra protection. It fights germs and contains over 300 vitamins, minerals, and compounds. Do you really need another reason not to go ahead and get this? It comes in a kids version as well. Which as sweet as it is they will be asking for more.
To sum this up: drink more water, have your cold & flu bomb roller ball, drink your bone broth, and spray that propolis spray.
