Elite Daily asks for expert commentary from Andrea Barone from Crystal Hills Organics

“Peppermint is my absolute favorite essential oil by far, and according to Andrea Barone, founder of the skincare company Crystal Hills, it’s one that you’ll want in your collection come cold and flu season.

Peppermint is packed with antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, Barone tells Elite Daily, so it’s “very beneficial for easing cold [and flu] symptoms,” she explains. A few drops, she says, can help stimulate the circulation of germ-fighting white blood cells in the body, which can help ward off the flu and other yucky viruses.

According to Healthline, body aches are one of the most common signs of the flu, but this kind of discomfort isn’t just inconvenient; it can feel flat-out agonizing, which is why you might want to purchase a vial of rosemary to help ease the pain.

Because rosemary has both antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, Barone tells Elite Daily, it’s often used to treat headaches, general body pain, bronchitis, asthma, and other respiratory ailments.

You could just add a few drops of the stuff to an essential oil diffuser, but Barone suggests concocting your own disinfectant spray by “adding a few drops of rosemary to water and putting into a spray bottle.” Spritz around the room, and take a deep, expansive breath to let the rosemary work its magic.” ~ Elite Daily
