Cleansing Spray
By: / Novice
Post # 1

I have come down with a respiratory illness (I am unaware if it is Covid) and have lost my senses quite a bit.

I have noticed a cleansing spray I have made helps a bit and I am posting the recipe in case this can help others. Normally I don't share my personal recipes but I can hardly taste anything momentarily and seek to help those who may experience the same.

The spray seems to awaken my dulled senses a little, I am hoping with continued use hopefully much will return.

Essential oils needed:

25 drops rose oil.

25 drops geranium oil.

25 drops clove oil.

Base ingredients:

Alcohol.

Water.

Spray bottle.

Mix your alcohol and oils into your spray bottle. Add in your water and shake before use.

This is a wonderful idea and contribution.

I suggest adding a therapeutic grade of Frankincense essential oil to the spray as it is an amazing healing oil and it's use has been studied in respiratory therapy research. I listened to a PHD about her research a few years ago, I wish I could remember her name and if I can find it or remember I'll post it later, about Frankincense oil and it's ability to help pneumonia patients recover faster. I personally use Frankincense oil to help with my own repertory issues which can lead to a lack of smell/taste. It helps my immune system's response of an over secretion of fluids in my lungs to fight infection and helps with my COPD airway restriction.

Many Healing Blessing <3

There is also a wonderful book by David Stewert PHD, called Healing Oils of the Bible that I suggest for more information on this and other ancient oils and their healing abilities.

This sounds like a very interesting recipe indeed, and I can only imagine how well it would target stubborn sinuses!

My first instinct would be to mix in a bit of menthol... but that is mostly because it is the main ingredient in products like vicks and just about every throat drop out there. I would half expect that chilly burn or else it would seem like it was missing something to me! *laughs*

I am trusting that you have study and experience in what you are doing RavenFeet, so this next bit is assuredly not directed at you. This is just something that needs to be said for responsibilities sake towards potential readers;

This stuff, just like aspirin or sinutab or other treatments- be they pharmecutical or herbal, help manage the symptoms. They do not cure the cause. Especially if it is some sort of virus; covid or otherwise. Those only resolve themselves in time, as the body fights them off.

There are very few treatments that actually attack a disease. Antibiotics like penicillin are superb at attacking bacterial infection, but doesn't even touch viruses. Nutrition like vitamin c, d, e, and citric acid helps the body fuel resistances in general, but does not actively prevent infection. Echinacea (when utilized with specific care), garlic, and ginger are potent immunostimulators, strengthening the body's overall immune responses; shortening the term of infection as the body fights it more effectively, but not necessarily stopping it. Treatments work only towards their purpose- so you want to understand what is going on as it will tell you what you need.

If a person is self-managing an issue, and it is getting worse (or even not getting better) over time, they should see a doctor. There is no substitute for knowledge and training. At the very least get the issue properly identified so you know what you are dealing with. Even in herbal treatment different causes can require different treatments, regardless of if they present similar symptoms.

Also, when working with herbs, that saying 'a little knowledge is a dangerous thing' rings more true than for any other practice. If you aren't experienced and educated, seek the guidance of someone who is. The wrong dose of the wrong plant will do more harm than good. Or could end up actually life-threatening.



**Re-posted after some editing for clarity. The original was typed up at 2 in the morning, and my brain was on power-saving mode so I only got out about half of what was needed to actually make a sensible point.
