This month Leanne shares some great tips to boost your immune system through the Ekka season:
1. For  sore throat, mix one spoon of manuka honey with a couple of drop of tea tree pure essential oil, and gargle (do not swallow)
2. Inhalations are great for stuffy sinuses: good old boiling water in a basin with a drop of eucalyptus. Place a towel over your head over the bowl & inhale the steam (remember to keep your eyes closed!)
3. Place two drops of peppermint essential oil on the floor of the shower before you turn the taps on for a refreshing uplifting shower that will clear the sinuses
