Get Fast Relief for That Stubborn Chest Congestion!

Get Fast Relief for That Stubborn Chest Congestion!
If you’ve ever used cough drops or nasal inhalers, you’ve experienced the congestion-clearing powers of eucalyptus oil. Essential oil extracted from the leaves of the eucalyptus tree, a type of evergreen native to Australia, has long been used in cough drops and cold medications as well as in mouthwashes, toothpaste, detergents, and liniments for arthritis pain.
It qualifies perfectly as “cheap insurance,” as my dad would say: not only is it the least expensive essential oil available today, it is simple to use, effective at relieving congestion, and can also provide protection against respiratory infections.
There are an ever-increasing number of drugs available to deal with chest congestion but the side effects associated with the use of these drugs is a concern for many of you.
Home remedies for congestion are free from side effects and can provide instant relief.
Why not use simple easy to use remedies first?
Fast Remedy: Eucalyptus can encourage better breathing and help to open clogged nasal and bronchial passages. To relieve congestion, it can also be used by placing a few drops on a handkerchief or adding 10 to 15 drops to a vaporizer or some boiling water on the stove. Also, eucalyptus oil makes a soothing chest rub for congestion and mucus buildup when diluted with olive oil. In addition to clearing the air passages, inhaling eucalyptus has been shown to cause an increase in the uptake of oxygen from the lungs to the bloodstream. This is great news for for anyone struggling with bronchial or respiratory problems.
Steam: As easy as a pot on the stove filled with steaming water plus a towel for a tent, steam inhalation therapy is quick but nonetheless effective. By inhaling the steam  for approximately 10 minutes, one can often notice a difference immediately. Due to steam inhalation, the accumulated mucus in the respiratory tract loosens up, which helps break down and clear chest congestion.
Bath: A hot shower or bath can also contribute to ease the discomfort associated with chest congestion. Inhaling steam that has built up in the bathroom will moisten the air passages and thin out the mucus.
Those are the most efficient remedies out there for dealing with and kicking that stubborn, weekend ruining chest congestion we all love to hate. So why not try it today and see how much faster you find relief!

How To Kick That Seasonal Cold Fast and Naturally.

How To Kick That Seasonal Cold Fast and Naturally.The winds are changing and seasons are in transition, which is prime time for germs and colds to abound. It’s so important to support your immune system to avoid getting taken over. But, if you still manage to end up with the dreaded seasonal cold, there are ways to kick it fast and we’re here to tell you how.
At Eurospa, we are dedicated to your health in the most natural ways possible. So please enjoy these natural and simple home remedies for faster healing!

Steam Inhalation
This is definitely the most popular method that relieves sinus inflammation, clears nasal congestion and soothes respiratory blockages as well. For doing this, you need to fill a small tub or a large bowl to about 3/4th of its capacity with hot water. Next, add some eucalyptus oil, either a few drops or a few sprays of Eucalyptus Shower Mist, to the water. Now, bow your head above the tub/pot of fragrant water and drape a towel over your head to create a smaller space for the steam to be trapped in near your face. Keep your mouth closed and breathe in deep so that the eucalyptus essence-laden steam reaches deep inside the nose and the upper respiratory tract. This method is very effective in providing relief from inflammation of the sinuses and blood vessels inside the nasal cavity, soothing nasal congestion and sinus headache.

Hot Lemon Tea
This one is simple. Warm a mug of hot water and add the juice of 1/2 a lemon to it. Add honey, stevia or agave to taste, to balance the bitter with some sweet. Stay away from sugar to sweeten, as this will feed any potential infection and you are trying to get rid of it! Lastly, add about 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to the mix for a spicy kick.  You can always add more if you like more spice, but add it little by little.  It builds up fast! The cayenne increases blood flow, reduces pain and strengthens the immune system.

Licorice Root
Licorice tea has been a reliable source of relief for a long time. Don't be confused, this dependable herb is far from the candy you may know it to be. An often underestimated herb, licorice is quite potent and has been used to treat ailments from tendonitis and ulcers to HIV and fungal infections. With that said, it's not a surprise that this powerful herb can kill infection while offering quick (and delicious) sore throat relief!  Go to any store that sells tea and you are sure to find it easily!

Essential Oils
Grab a bottle of peppermint or eucalyptus oil and simply inhale. You'll be surprised at how fast your sinuses will clear! Additionally, both essential oils have anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties, so inhaling their constituents will also help to heal you. But keep reading to find out even more ways to use the healing power of eucalyptus!

These short tips are sure to bring you a much more comfortable night and a faster road to recovery for your sore throat. Eurospa stands behind the quality of our products and we are happy to serve you in the same way we've served homes and spas all over for the last 30 years!

School’s Back In Session! Boost Everyone’s Immune System Now!

School’s Back In Session! Boost Everyone’s Immune System Now!School is back in session, germs are everywhere and you need to keep your family protected! Colds follow the germs and no one wants to miss a school day or work day. So be sure to be on top of it all and prevent it from taking over your life, energy and ability to do what needs to be done.  
Boosting our immune systems isn’t hard. Just use these tips!
Reduce Sugar
I know it’s hard, but sugar is one of the top ways to compromise your immune system. It’s like a lowering of your defenses and welcoming the attack. So when the sweet tooth hits, reach for alternative sweeteners and save your health!
Healthy Eating
Staying away from sugar isn’t the only thing you can do on the food front. The following foods are extremely beneficial for your overall health and strength of your immune system. Be sure to get a balanced amount of each.

-Fermented foods such as kefir, kimchee, miso, pickles, sauerkraut, etc.
-Raw, organic eggs from free-ranging chickens
-Coconuts and coconut oil
-Locally grown fruits and vegetables
-Mushrooms, especially Reishi, Shiitake, and Maitake, which contain beta glucans (which have immune-enhancing properties)
-Garlic, a potent antimicrobial that kills bacteria, viruses AND fungi
-Herbs and spices with high ORAC scores: Turmeric, oregano, cinnamon, cloves

School Lunches
This is an opportunity to capitalize on! Make sure the kids have the right kind of nutrient packed foods needed to fuel and protect their bodies during the day! Chopped veggies to dip in hummus, sauteed vegetables and brown rice with protein is a great energizing lunch, both for the mind and immune system.

Encourage Water Drinking
Keeping hydrated allows the body to both function efficiently and to flush toxins and bacteria from your system. Water is essential for the optimal function of every system in your body. Keeping kids hydrated isn’t always easy when they’re at school. Send them with water bottles and require them to drink a glass of water before each meal to get into good habits at home. Without enough water, a flower wilts. Our minds and bodies are the same.

Steam Detox
The body loves a chance to release stored toxins in the skin and other organs. For adults, either create a good steaming shower and add our eucalyptus oil shower spray to the mix or do the same in a quality sauna or steam room.  This will also fight bronchial infections, respiratory struggles, growing pains, improve circulation and alleviate pain from fibromyalgia and arthritis. For children, run a bath for them with just one spray onto the tub walls for the same yet lighter effect.

Get Enough Sleep
Our bodies needs time to recover, heal and grow. If there seems to be more homework than time, reevaluate time management and create a more healthy schedule. Waking earlier is better than going to bed later as well. To get the most out of sleep, you need more REM time. To get this, limit eating to no later than 2 hours before bed, unless it’s a protein based, no starch, no sugar snack. Stay away from media, computers and phones at least an hour before bed.

At Eurospa, we are committed to your health and the health of the world around you. Please take close care of your immune system this season and talk to us about our other products available for personal and spa use!

Feeling Nauseous? Kick It Fast With These Natural and Safe Home Remedies!

Feeling Nauseous? Kick It Fast With These Natural and Safe Home Remedies!When nausea hits, your nerves start to go wild. Sometimes you know the cause and other times you don’t. What’s more important is that you don’t want the nausea to lead to any further problems. So you’ve got to handle it fast.
We at Eurospa, want to share with you our favorite tried and true remedies to quickly and safely kick the nausea trying to take you down.

We have a few favorite remedies that are free and natural and able to be done at home and we’ll get to those shortly. Our first go to for handling nausea is essential oils. Why? because using the highest quality of oils has a miraculous result on the body and mind. At Eurospa, we have formulated a eucalyptus oil shower spray that not only eases nausea, but also supports your respiratory, musculoskeletal , circulatory and even nervous system. The way you want to do it, is to either spritz the spray around your head or body, being careful to avoid your eyes. This can be done in your home or even better, in the steam of the shower for more intensified results.

Essential oils penetrate the skin and circulate throughout the body in a matter of minutes. The best thing is that in addition to inhaling their healing fragrance, you can also place them on the bottoms of your feet, as the body absorbs essential oils quickly and is able to disperse them throughout your body rather than having to take something internally. And if you're suffering from stomach ailments or nausea, this will come as a relief, as you likely can't handle anything orally anyway.

Another option, to help you alleviate nausea is to put peppermint oil behind and around your ears, as well as to suck on a peppermint. You will be surprised at how fast this works.

Another option, if you have a health food store near by, is to grab a bottle of charcoal capsules. Take two every hour or two, while you feel a true stomach upset. The charcoal goes into the stomach and grabs and binds to the toxins, bacteria and other causes of the upset and flushes them from your system. 

If you're tired of using less than helpful products to feel better and are ready to experience true health and vitality, start with a powerful small step. Get a bottle of Eucalyptus oil shower spray today. Your whole body will thank you.
