The air quality is the worst anywhere in the US, here in Nor Cal. I’m taking a minute today to talk about this. It’s bad here and way worse in directly affected areas.
So stay in. Wear a mask. Practice self care - drink lavender tea infusions (anti inflammatory and soothing), don’t burn candles, use a diffuser and some oils like bergamot that soothes the throat, clary sage (soothing) and peppermint (good for the respiratory system). You need essential oils, scented oils won’t provide the same benefit as concentrates.
Be kind to yourself and to others. This isn’t normal. We need to acknowledge that and I’m the worst, as I actually went out (without a mask) and considered a little walk around Lake Merrit. Um. No. Don’t.
I’m even keeping my dog inside.
Stay safe and healthy, and let’s do what we can for those in need. We’re donating from our profits this month to help victims of the fires.
