Whether it is cold and flu season getting you down, or just general winter blahs, Thursday Plantation has you covered. Their natural oils are 100 pure and can help everything from a cold or flu to aches after wearing heels for hours. I received a Winter Rescue kit with Lavender Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus oil and have some of my homemade remedies to share.
Thursday Plantation Lavender Oil
We all know lavender is a sleep scent so the calming effects are no surprise. Thursday Plantation’s lavender oil can also be used to help with coughs, colds and even headaches! Priced at $19.99 for a 25ml bottle, you only need a few drops each time to help.
Lavender Oil has lots of uses. You can rub 100% pure lavender oil on your lips to help them feel hydrated again. Great for winter wind burn or those cute but drying matte lip colours. Seriously, try it on your lips. Mine have been a mess but a single drop on my finger and the chapped skin just rubbed off – it is amazing! Plus the scent of it can help with stress or anxiety.
I made my own night cream using an unscented lotion with shea butter to help my dry winter skin and a few drops of Thursday Plantation Lavender Oil for that calming sleep scent.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil
When I think of Tea Tree Oil I think blemishes but it has a ton of other uses too. Thursday Plantation’s 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil is $13.99 for a 25ml bottle and can be used for everything from cold sores to aches and pains.
Did you know that tea tree oil is antiseptic? Mix it with some warm water and gargle to help with a sore throat. Or use it is a bowl of hot water and let the steam relieve nasal and sinus inflections.
Since he is on his feet at work all day, I mixed a few drops of Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil with Epsom Salts in foot soak sized containers. Sit back, let the heat and oil soothe away aches and pains and warm up from being out in the cold. The antiseptic quality is also great if you wore new shoes that rubbed. If you have a cold or flu, make it bath tub sized. The scent will help you breathe too.
Thursday Plantation Eucalyptus Oil
The Eucalyptus Oil from Thursday Plantation comes in a bigger bottle. You get 50ml for just $9.99 and can really help you though cold and flu season.
On top of the scent properties that can help ease cold and flu symptoms like stuffy noses. Thursday Plantation Eucalyptus Oil can also be used as a natural disinfectant. Just mix with some distilled water and pour into a spray bottle.
I warmed a little coconut oil and mixed in a few drops of Eucalyptus oil to make my own Vapour Rub to help with night time stuffy noses. Plus tried out the disinfectant spray that is also a cat deterrent since they hate the smell! No more sleeping on my new pillow boys! Now it is cat fur free and helps clear my stuffy nose as I sleep.
