Tuesday Spotlight: Tea Tree & Eucalyptus
Tea Tree & Eucalyptus soap is in the spotlight today. I have chosen this soap because both The Bean and The Bibbed Wonder are suffering from sinus infections here at the Smay household. This is the first time in almost two years we have had any illness in our home. Although we are grateful, it isn’t Covid, both are feeling uncomfortable, and both are suffering from sinus pressure, headaches, and clogged ears. Tis’ the season for the common cold and flu, not to mention the presence of Covid.
When we have a cold, my go-to soap is Tea Tree & Eucalyptus. Can a soap cure a common cold? The answer is no. Of course, frequently washing your hands is the best defense against any germs or bacteria. However, the tea tree and eucalyptus oils work great in the shower for helping to unclog a stuffy nose and make breathing a bit more comfortable. The menthol-like scent works similarly to a popular vapor rub.
Not only does the scent combination work great in the shower, but both tea tree and Eucalyptus oils are believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. Tea Tree oil is top-rated in the homeopathic community for this reason. When my favorite people don’t feel well, I combine both traditional medicine and homeopathic practices to make them feel better. Not only do we visit our doctor, but I push hot soup, warm tea, plenty of fluids, vitamin C, and tea tree & eucalyptus soap.
We should all be doing more hand washing, especially during cold and flu season. Washing one’s hands with a natural, gentle soap will not only combat germs but combat dry skin as well. For these reasons, I have chosen the Tea Tree & Eucalyptus soap for this week’s spotlight. As always, the weekly spotlight is half off on the website for the week. Now is a great time to stock up, have a bar on hand, especially if you have school-age children, or make a get-well care package for someone who needs a little TLC.
Dear reader, stay safe, be smart, and remember to wash your hands frequently. Handwashing is the best defense against germs.
