Use Essential Oils
Sure, essential oils won't cure disease and aren't a substitute for a flu shot. But the powerful scents can give you a temporary mood boost or help you breathe easier, especially when a stuffed-up nose is ruining your quality of life. Majka recommends a blend of eucalyptus and sage to open up the sinuses and help you breathe deeper.
And since it feel impossible to wake up in complete darkness in the morning, getting up and moving can be harder than ever. Majka says to take a citrusy essential oil, such as lemongrass or grapefruit, and mix it with warm water into a spray bottle to spritz into your hot shower in the morning. Not only will it make your bathroom smell amazing, but it will give you a boost of energy to help wake you up.
