Swine Flu

How to use essential oils to prevent swine flu

Getting someone to quit smoking is one of the hardest things to do. But some people are saying that aromatherapy can provide a positive influence when you are trying to stop smoking.

Aromatherapy, with the help of essential oils, can change moods and can induce a feeling of calm that help relieve some of the effects of nicotine addiction. Some say that when craving for a cigarette, one can inhale some essential oil blends to help alleviate the need to smoke.

What is Swine-Flu?

Swine-flu is kind of flu type disease but with H1N1 virus. Usually human don't get infected from this kind of virus. Mostly the virus attacked animals like pigs, bird, etc.

But due to we like petting animals, so we easily got infected if we don't wash our hands afterwards.

Some of swine flu symptoms are having a fever with loss of appetite. Lack of energy, feeling tired. Have eating problems such as vomitting the food, nausea, or even sore throat

Many people also got serious problems with coughing and running nose.

Taking Precaution

Swine flu may be prevented by be certain precautions according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP).

  • When you sneeze, try to cover your nose with tissue and throw it immediately after use
  • please wash your hand after you sneeze and try not to touch your mouth, eye or nose to prevent germ
  • Not to be close to someone who got flu, and do that also if you got sick, you should stay at home and do less contact with others

Aromatherapy and its connection with swine flu

Since swine flu is caused by virus, I found out that there are several oils (eucalyptus, Thyme and Oregano) has shown a tremendous results against it, proven by case studies.

But I'm not guarantee that it will works against H1N1 virus. All I can say that it worked in the past to cure flu cause by other virus.
