There’s an endless amount of over-the-counter medications at any regular drugstore to help you fight a cold, but before you decide to do that, you might want to consider heading over to your local aromatherapy shop for a more natural and effective solution instead. The right therapeutic essential oils may help.

According to WebMD, cold symptoms can be helped by rubbing certain essential oils on the body, inhaling them through steam by using a diffuser, and combining them with a damp cloth to be applied to the skin. Make sure you follow the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy’s safety guidelines to ensure you use essential oils properly to avoid potential adverse effects.
