Pine is a fantastic decongestant - fantastic to use in inhalation blends for Chest infections.
Frankincense is bactericidal and can help boost immunity & fight off colds and flu.
Myrrh is an anti-inflammatory and also beneficial to the immune system - It is also good for helping with cracked, dry skin so can be blended into a hand cream at this time of year.
Two less obvious choices for the festive period are both fantastic for the digestive system (when used in massage, or an inhalation - NOT to be digested themselves). For those awful symptoms of over- indulgence apply in a compress to the abdomen or massaged in a low dilution.
Reflexology points that may need a little TLC at this time of year include those of the digestive system, Lymphatic's and respiratory system. Work the reflexes for the sinus (toes), Lungs (fleshy area just under toes) and stomach (area just under the ball of the foot).
Treatment vouchers are a fantastic gift to give to family and friends at this time of year, so for those of you still trying to think of ideas for presents - get in touch and organise a relaxing, tailor made treatment to give as a gift - or if you are feeling the strain of all that Christmas shopping & present wrapping, take some time out and treat yourself!
Individual cautions apply & dilution rates vary per product and person - Please speak to your therapist for details.
