Top 5 Cold Remedies While Pregnant

Diffusing Essential Oils

I love everything essential oils can do for us— so when I’m sick I take full advantage of their benefits.

I diffuse 3 Drops of RC, 3 Drops of Lavender & 2 Drops of Lemon.

I diffuse “Young Living” essential oils in a “Dew Drop Diffuser”.

This blend of oils helps with “respiratory care”, germ fighting and relaxing.


“Garlic Shooter”

If you can stomach this one I swear by it!

Take one clove of garlic and chop it into tiny pieces, fill a 2 oz glass with almond milk, drop the garlic in and shoot it back.

My Dad has been doing this since I was young and the man is never sick.

I believe the garlic is antibacterial.


Turmeric Tea 

I take one small table spoon of turmeric powder, 2 table spoons of honey and the juice of half a lemon I mix this in my tea pot and stir it all together I then add the lemon wedges into the tea pot and let it steep for about 5 minutes.

ENJOY!

Low Levels of Turmeric During Pregnancy Are Considered Safe. … Based on the available evidence so far, it is perhaps safest for pregnant women to consume low quantities of turmeric – for instance as a spice to season foods such as curries and soups – but preferably not as a high-dose supplement.


Humidity 

At the first sign of a cold I get my humidifier going to help with congestion.

I got mine off of amazon and I absolutely love it.


Vitamin C
