A strong germ killer.

Try using in a diffuser or aroma lamp to keep colds, coughs and sinus
problems at a minimum this fall and winter.
Cold & Flu Room Spray

Eucalyptus - 10 drops
Frankincense- 8 drops
Tea Tree - 8 drops
Ravensara - 6 drops
Rosemary - 4 drops
Emulsifier - 30 drops
distilled water- 8 ounces

Blend the essential oils together then add the emulsifier. Stir well then add to the Linen/room spray. Shake well. Spray around the room as needed. If you want to spray a little on the pillow, only spray on one side. Let it dry then place the sprayed side down, away from the side the face will touch. This allows the essential oils to not touch the skin which could cause irritation but lets them surround you while you sleep.

Steep the flaxseed in hot water for 15 minutes. Strain and add lemon, jam, cinnamon and honey. Drink as hot as possible. This also soothes the throat.

Magickal Associations:
Vitality, comeliness, prosperity, protection

Bohemian tradition says if children dance in a flax field once every seven years until maturity they will grow to be strong and beautiful. Flaxseed can generally be found in many health food stores.

If your stomach can tolerate it, some black pepper or other purgative herb can help cleanse out your system.
