Did you know R.C. oil may be used as a natural remedy when you are under the weather? Hi, it’s Shinko, and I am passionate about living a natural lifestyle. Formulated with ten therapeutic essential oils, R.C. provides symptomatic relief from cough and cold naturally. So today, I will be Mrs. Pinterest and share seven ways to use R.C. for tackling nasal and chest congestion. Are you worried that you may not remember them all? No problem! Click the link below for recipes.
Before I proceed, here is a tip. To apply on your skin, mix five drops of R.C. essential oil in 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. If you would like to apply directly on your skin, your feet’ sole is the best place because it is such a thick, porous part of the body yet not overly sensitive.
Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. If this happens, rinse well with vegetable oil, not water, or sting your eyes!
Are you ready?
For Cough & Cold:
Have you got a stuffy nose? Put the mixture of R.C. and vegetable oil on a Q-tip and rub on inside nasal passages to relieve nasal congestion. Additionally, please take a couple of drops of R.C. in your palm, rub your hands together, then cup them over your nose and breathe in deep. It will open up your airways so you can breathe easier.
Ready to ditch commercial Vaporizing Chest Rub? Then here’s the recipe for natural DIY Vapour Rub. All you need are five drops R.C. oil and ½ Cup extra virgin coconut oil. First, heat coconut oil over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from heat, cool the mixture to 40 degrees Celsius. Third, transfer it to a metal or glass container and refrigerate. Would you like to add other essential oils to the recipe? Then, please contact me. I will be happy to share the ingredients with you!
Trouble breathing? Here’s a recipe for DIY oil-infused tissues. First, remove tissues from their tissue box. Next, pour 3-4 drops of R.C. onto a cotton ball and seal it with the tissues in an airtight container for 24 hours. Finally, remove tissues and replace them in the box. Repeat as needed to refresh the scent.
Are you calling for Aromatic Massage? Massage the chest, throat, back, and feet with a mixture of R.C. and vegetable oil! The crisp aroma will provide you with much-needed relief from congestion.
Steam inhalation, anyone? Apply 3 – 4 drops of R.C. oil to a bowl of steaming water and deeply inhale the steam. If the steaming water is not available to you, I’ve got an easier method for you to try. Add 5-6 drops to a hot bath with Epsom salt or 3-5 drops to your shower’s wall or outer edge. The hot water will diffuse the scent and open up your nasal passages naturally.
Would you like to try warm compresses? Infuse your compress with R.C. oil to help alleviate symptoms of colds and coughs! First, add 4-5 drops of R.C. oil to a bottle filled with 500 ml of warm water. Second, shake the bottle well, then soak your compress (a clean, absorbent washcloth is recommended). Then, gently squeeze the compress to remove excess moisture. Finally, apply the compress directly on the forehead, across the nose and cheeks, on the throat or chest.
How about diffusing? Add 5-8 drops to a diffuser filled with distilled water. It will help purify the air and help with your congestion. No diffusers at home? No problem! Put 4-8 drops on cotton balls and put them in or on vents. You can apply the same method in your car or home during the forest fire season. Not sure exactly how? Please contact me. I will be happy to show you how to aid your respiratory health with this fantastic oil!
In summary, R.C. is a powerful essential oil blend that naturally provides relief from cough and cold. Stands for Respiratory Care, it is a must-have staple in every household.
