Prepare for a Healthy Winter: Breathe Better Butter Can Help

Sinus infections and congestion can be particularly problematic during the winter for several reasons. The winter season often comes with dry indoor air due to heating systems that can irritate the nasal passages and sinuses, making them more susceptible to infections and congestion. Cold, flu and covid are much more common during the colder months. These infections can lead to sinusitis, congestion and runny noses. Additionally, some people are more sensitive to indoor allergens like dust mites, mold and pet dander. Spending more time indoors during the winter can expose these individuals to these allergens, leading to sinus congestion and discomfort. Moving between cold outdoor air and warm indoor environments can also be a contributing factor to congestion. When your nasal passages are constricting and expanding rapidly it can lead to additional discomfort.

It's time to prepare for this winter's congestion by having Breathe Better Butter in your medicine cabinet. What's Breathe Better Butter? It's an all natural vapor rub made with our signature Cocobuttery formula of Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Coconut oil infused with: Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Basil essential oils.

Breathe Better Butter

1. Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus oil is known for its ability to open up airways and relieve congestion. It contains a compound called eucalyptol that helps clear mucus and improve breathing.

2. Rosemary: Rosemary oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce nasal congestion and promote clearer breathing.

3. Lemongrass: Lemongrass oil has a soothing effect and helps relieve respiratory issues, making it easier to breathe when congested.

4. Basil: Basil oil has antimicrobial properties that help with respiratory infections that can lead to congestion. It also provides relief from sinus congestion.

The combination of these essential oils in a product like Breathe Better Butter can create a soothing and refreshing aroma that will help ease congestion, improve breathing, and provide a sense of relief. It is recommended that you apply to your chest and your feet and then put on some socks. Infusing shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil with eucalyptus, rosemary, lemongrass, basil, has created a handmade chest and foot balm with amazing natural benefits for relieving congestion:

Rubbing essential oils, such as eucalyptus, rosemary, lemongrass, and basil, on your feet can offer several potential benefits:

1. Absorption: The skin on the feet is relatively thin and contains numerous blood vessels, which enhances the absorption of essential oils when applied topically.

2. Reflexology: Reflexology, an alternative therapy, suggests that the feet have reflex points that correspond to various organs and systems in the body. Massaging essential oils onto these points will stimulate relaxation and overall well-being.

3. Improved circulation: The rubbing action, combined with the properties of the essential oils, will help improve blood circulation and reduce swelling or discomfort in the feet.

4. Relaxation: The soothing aroma of these oils can have a calming effect and promote relaxation, making it a pleasant self-care practice.

5. Respiratory relief: Some people find that applying essential oils with congestion-relief properties to the feet can indirectly help with respiratory issues by promoting better overall comfort and relaxation.

Rubbing Breathe Better Butter on your chest has additional benefits:

1. Respiratory Relief: When applied to the chest, Breathe Better Butter releases the soothing and decongestant properties of eucalyptus, rosemary, lemongrass, and basil, helping to ease breathing difficulties and congestion.

2. Skin Moisturization: Shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil provide deep moisturization, preventing dryness and irritation that can often accompany respiratory discomfort.

3. Aromatherapy: The pleasant aroma of these essential oils can offer relaxation and mental relief, reducing the stress associated with congestion.

***Always remember to perform a patch test to ensure you do not have any skin sensitivities or allergies to these ingredients. Additionally, consult with a healthcare professional if you have specific health concerns or if you’re uncertain about using these handmade balms, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions.
