IMMUNE BOOSTING EUCALIPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL
Essential oils are safe, natural home remedies that are often used as an alternative to prescription and over-the-counter medicines. These herbal scents have antibacterial and antiviral properties, and they may help fighting bacteria, reducing inflammation, and relieve symptoms like congestion and aches.
EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL is one of the most powerful essential oils out there. This immune-boosting oil reduces fevers and fights viruses and promotes feelings of clear breathing. It is known for its ability to reduce or eliminate harmful surface and airborne bacteria, and infections upon contact. It enhances feelings of relaxation, soothes nervous tension, and helps clear the mind, among its various other benefits. These healing benefits can be attributed to the oil’s anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, deodorant, antiseptic, antibacterial, and stimulating qualities, among other valuable properties.
HOW TO USE
Inhalation is the most beneficial way to use essential oils. You can inhale essential oils by sniffing the bottle directly or adding a few drops of oil to a cotton ball or handkerchief. You can also add a few drops to your pillow before bedtime. For steam inhalation, add a few drops of essential oil to a bowl of boiling water and inhale the steam.
Aromatherapy lamp is a less direct method of inhaling essential oils. ItÂ gently diffuses the scent of the essential oil without burning it. As the scent is filtered, its molecules are released into the air. The main advantage of this method is that it eliminates airborne bacteria and odors in the room.

In honor of Passover, we’re delighted to present you with a traditional Passover treat from Lin’s Farm Haroset. It is a mixture of fruit and nuts for the seder plate on Passover. It’s sometimes tart, always sweet, and often chunky, frequently containing wine and cinnamon. Strangely, this sweet symbol helps us to remember the mortar that was used to make the bricks used in the building of Egypt.
During the Seder, it is a tradition to make a Hillel sandwich. A Hillel sandwich is named after a Rabbi named Hillel, who lived in Jerusalem in the last century before the Common Era, who suggested mixing the haroset with two other foods that are eaten at the seder. He suggested making a sandwich out of matza, haroset, and a bitter herb such as horseradish. The bitter herb is a reminder of the burdens of slavery. The sweetness of the haroset is a reminder of the sweetness of redemption. The remainder of haroset is often eaten plain, spread on matzah.
