Herbal teas. The flu and colds, especially if you had a high body temperature, is recommended to drink plenty of liquids.Highly recommend herbal teas.Because herbs can take linden, chamomile, mint, thyme and others.

I was asked that at the pharmacy for 50 rubles, you can buy any essential oil, and I order and pay for the expensive bottle.I for myself have chosen essential oil "Primavera".I like these oils, they are very high quality.I use tea tree oil in its pure form, the skin is not burning.The difference in quality of oil.And I get the result from the application of essential oils and it is pleasant to me.In the past year, I have been studying this topic.There are high-quality oil, but there are synthetic.
