Eager to always learn and do everything myself, I signed up for a DIY workshop to make my own pain reliever balm (equivalent to tiger balm) and a spray for sore throat.
This workshop was conducted by naturopath Claudine Blanc.
Thanks to this workshop, I deepened my knowledge of essential oils, in particular their benefits and how to combine them.
For me, it is important to be interested in the methods of others. This allows me to always improve and learn.
Today, I share this positive experience because in my work, I have to pull and pull sometimes heavy stuff and I am no stranger to muscular pain. Since I made this homemade balm, I keep it in my bag, which offers quick relief.
Working with young children, I often experience symptoms of a small cold and it usually starts with a scratchy throat. Now I have a great recipe to relieve that.
I highly recommend that you try these fabulous recipes.
Do not hesitate to share your experience with us.
100 ml water
rind of a lemon
1 cinnamon stick*
1 bulb of fresh ginger*
Thumbsize of turmeric root*
50 drops of propolis
25 gr honey (thyme or manuka honey)
In a saucepan, pour the water and put the lemon peel, the cinnamon stick as well as the ginger and turmeric previously cut into slices. Bring the mixture to a boil and let marinate for 15 min. Then filter everything and add the propolis and honey.
Pour the preparation into a glass container with spray cap and it's ready.
Store at room temperature, out of the refrigerator.
This preparation will keep for a good ten days.
Spray 3 times a day or in case of throat pain every hour, outside of meals.
* Cinnamon, ginger and turmeric can be used in powder but in this case, it will be necessary to pass the preparation through a muslin in order to filter everything well. Otherwise the liquid will not pass into the vaporizer.
