A combo of an overnight flight, a lingering cold, jetlag and minimal sleep meant I arrived back from NYC last month feeling really really rough. Like in bed for five days ill (this is rare for me – I will drag myself to my computer in almost any state). My cough and cold symptoms came back in an epic manner and my chest and sinuses were congested and blocked.
After my facial at the Mandarin Oriental (fancy I know) I browsed the Aromatherapy Associates range they carry there and came across their Support Breathe Essence which sounded like exactly what I needed. Put simply this is a souped up more special luxury version of the classic Olbas Oil.
Ingredients include Eucalyptus, Globulus, Lavandula, Angustifolia, (Lavender) Oil, Melaleuca Cajaputi, (Cajuput) Oil, Pinus (Pine) Oil, Mentha Piperita, (Peppermint) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin, (Pathchouli) Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil.
I used it by sniffing it (suspiciously) in a tissue or sprinkling it on my pillow at night. A couple of days of this and my blocked sinuses had cleared and my cough had stopped being quite so hacking.
A big recommendation from me – it has a comforting, zingy scent and helped shift my lingering congested symptoms.
The Aromatherapy Associates Support Breathe Essence is available at Cult Beauty for £18
