Surviving winter with aromatherapy oils


Aromacare's Winter Survival Kit

During winter, our bodies work hard to keep us healthy and warm.  In Aged Care, residents and staff have increased exposure to droplet infection via colds, coughs and respiratory tract infections, including influenza. Respiratory infections make us all miserable and put vulnerable older people seriously at risk of severe illness and death. 
Aromatherapy, used effectively, limits the spread of respiratory infections by tackling viruses and bacteria in airborne droplets and helps manage a range of debilitating cold, cough and respiratory symptoms.

Aromatherapy helps to

  • Reduce airborne infection by diffusing antiseptic essential oils into the immediate environment
  • Reduce nasal congestion through the anti-inflammatory, decongestant and expectorant effects of essential oils via a diffuser or tissue
  • Ease coughing and loosen troublesome mucus through the anti-inflammatory and expectorant therapeutic actions of essential oils
  • Lessen the pain associated with respiratory tract inflammation and swollen tissues through the analgesic properties of essential oils
