Thought you’d enjoy this 12 days of Christmas Alternative Health Song – lots of helpful tips and hints here
I’ve had several experiences of being sick at Christmas.
I think it can happen easily since there is so much going on in our lives and we all have extra work to do to make it through the Christmas Season and there can be a lot more stresses and strains placed on our bodies.
One of my comforts is to know that I have my essential oils, homeopathic remedies, yoga moves and meditation to help me stay in a good place!
So last year I wrote this 12 Days of Christmas Alternative Song, I’ve updated it a little with useful tips and hints and some links!
12 Days of Christmas Alternative Health Song – (Sing to ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ tune)
Oh mum I have a sore tummy! So I gave her a remed-e-eee (Di-Gize, Young Living)
I have a sore throat, feels like it’s wearing a coat, so I gave her a remed-e-eee
(2 dropsY oung Living DiGize in a vegetable based capsule, taken internally)
On the 4th day of Christmas my friend did say to me “I’m not feeling my best, am a little stressed” so I gave her a remede-eee
(rub some Peace and Calming Young Living blend on your wrists, then hold up to nose and inhale, take a 10 minute nap).
On the 5th day of Christmas, a friend did say to me – aaargh!!!! I have – 5 — COLD — SORES!
So I gave her a remede-eee
(Most respond to Young Living Thieves Oil, just a drop on the sore every few hours until relieved, if not, then try Melissa or Ravensara Oils). I also know someone who gets good results by mixing up instant coffee to a paste and putting it on, but haven’t tried that myself.
(Ask husband to rub Young Living Panaway blend into my low back – immediate warmth and relief).
(Young Living Christmas Spirit, a blend of orange, cinammon and spruce to lift the spirit – and it covers up cooking smells!)
(Gave him a half-hour foot reflexology session – poor guy, it’s like being married to a builder who never fixes his own home – his feet always get done last!!)
On the 9th day of Christmas my true-love gave to me a nice organic cotton wrap and a really soft organic cotton night-eee). At least at this age my daughters are too small to borrow my stuff, or they’d be after them!
(Thank goodness – I needed a remedy too by this point!).
(By then, we all needed it).
On the 11th day of Christmas I felt quite happ-eee. Did one hour of yoga, then meditated, which meant a lot more energy for me-eee.
On the 12th day of Christmas, I reflected on the Year, family well and healthy, thanks to my stock of oils and homeopatheeeee!
Thanks to everyone who’s followed my journey so far, here’s wishing you all an enjoyable, well and healthy holiday season. Hope you find the 12 Days of Alternative Christmas Song useful!
