Cold and Flu Patch

By Mona Zavosh

Notes

If you are sensitive to the patch tape, apply a bit of coconut oil to your chest before affixing the patch to your chest.

Cold and Flu Patch

Ingredients

  1. 4 tablespoons organic all-purpose flour
    4 teaspoons ginger paste
    4 teaspoons honey
    4 teaspoons coconut oil
    60 drops eucalyptus essential oil
    20 drops peppermint essential oil
    20 drops rosemary essential oil
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Sterile waterproof adhesive pads, 3x4 inch

Directions

  1. In a clean bowl or jar, mix all of the ingredients into a paste.
  2. Measure out 1/2 teaspoon of the paste and apply to the cotton center of the patch. Use a paintbrush to spread the paste. Apply the patch on to your chest for several hours or overnight for congestion relief, and breathe easy. Keep the remaining paste covered, and store in a cool and dry place.
