Some essential oils can help alleviate the head cold symptoms, such as fever, headache, and stuffy nose. Tea tree essential oil, for instance, is said to attack congestion and help open up air passages. It’s best to dissolve this oil in a hot bath or breathe it in with an inhaler. Thyme oil can also be mixed with tea tree oil for enhanced benefits.
Peppermint essential oil is said to fight against viruses and help alleviate chest coughs. The preferred vehicle for this oil is also through an inhaler. It is always best to consult with someone who is knowledgeable of essential oils, particularly if you are new to using them.
