I have a new best friend now, it is Peppermint tea with a little honey in it. Sip it slowly, and sip it all day, it seems to be the best thing for this cold/virus my children have shared with me.
The other thing that helped was this blend of oils a lady from LeReve made up for me and for my Sarah for our chests and feet to be pampered with. A cold and flu blend of oils which smell Divine, once your nose clears of the congestion that is. Sarah's dry cough also dissipated with the application of the oils.
I'll be around checking blogs this week, and hopefully the course of this lurgy will be outrun by the weeks ending.
