As soon as you get the "tickle" in the back of your throat, gargle with this salt and essential oil blend, then use as needed. Works like a charm. Keep this blend handy in the bathroom during cold and flu season. This blend also works well as a bathroom spray disinfectant.
Dissolve 1/8 teaspoon of sea salt into 1 cup of warm water. Add 3 drops of bergamot, lemon and tea tree blend.If you don't have any of the three oils, each will work well on it's own.
