15 Dec 4 Simple Ayurveda Remedies for Flu Relief ✨?
So after a busy few weeks hosting final Women’s circles & coaching sessions of 2019, the dreaded flu that’s been round our local Village has got me! ?♀️? Whilst the best remedy is always sleep, hydration & healing foods, ??I wanted to share some simple tips that have been taking the edge off… ?? (I’d love to hear your recommendations too!☺️)
1. Self-Facial for Lymphatic Drainage ??♀️
Anyone else find their face gets SO congested with Flu?! ? My eyes hurt, face swollen & glands popping out my neck! ? Doing a full facial routine drains fluid & relieves ALL of that ?. Let your intuition guide you as you massage your face. ??? (If you’re a member of The Sisterhood ?there’s a great online tutorial in the ‘Self-Care Rituals’ section where Holistic Therapist Emma guides you through a DIY Facial. ✨)
2. Ginger Steam Bath ??♀️?
I’ve been running my baths a little hotter than usual to help sweat out the toxins… & adding freshly sliced ginger for a refreshing Nasal steam to clear up my airways ???. The ginger also speeds up circulation & reduces inflammation – bye bye nasty congestion! ?? (If you don’t have a bath steam your face in a large bowl with a tea towel over your head. ??)
3. Body brushing to alleviate body aches ?
I’ve been doing this before I get in the bath… ? whilst I know body brushing has been used for centuries for toxin release… during the Flu I’ve been craving it for it’s exfoliation & massage experience … I find ‘the rough touch’ relieves my full body aches & gives that overall detox feeling! ✨ Try not to be nakey for too long though ?best to keep warm when you have the Flu! ☺️ (Again, there’s a tutorial for how to Body Brush inside The Sisterhood ?)
4. Hot Lemon & Honey Soother ??
I recommend making a big flask so you can have it ‘on-tap’ straight from your bedside. ?? A few slices of lemon & honey in hot water. TIP: Buy ‘squeezey honey’ so you don’t have to keep spooning it out the jar! ✨ (You can thank me later! ?) There you have it! ? My top Ayurveda Remedies to relieve Flu Symptoms!✨
