i’ve been struck with a nasty upper respiratory infection that literally shut me down the past several days. i had flu-like symptoms but i am a lot better now. no more fever and body aches, thank God! i’m on the mend, though still with coughing bouts, low energy and little appetite.
aside from lots of fluids and a prescribed cough syrup with codeine, the french lavender essential oil came in very handy. a drop to an unscented lotion for massage took my headaches away like magic and the soothing aroma kept me relaxed and calm.
here is our blooming lavender in a planter box just outside the main door. it is beautiful and a natural relaxant. i can only imagine the breathtaking lavender fields in provence. it must be a spectacular sight!
stay healthy everyone!
