Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 9, 2008
Sneezing, a scratchy throat, runny nose, and a general feeling of the blahs - the symptoms of a nasty winter cold are all too familiar. A cold can wreak havoc on your energy and your schedule. In fact, while the common cold is usually mild, with symptoms lasting one to two weeks, it is one of the leading causes of doctor visits and missed days from school and work. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 22 million school days are lost annually in the United States due to the common cold. Most colds start to strike Americans in fall and winter and the season continues until March or April.
Now finding relief from colds and allergies can be found naturally with a new line of products from Brittanie's Thyme LLC, a company with offices based in La Grange, IL and Cedar Springs, MI. The company has introduced two natural products, Organic Sinus Relief Pillows and Cold Comfort Crystals, which rely on herbs and essential oils and aid in the relief of cold and sinus symptoms without the need to ingest or inhale anything. These products are particularly helpful for people who cannot tolerate decongestants and other over-the-counter cough and cold medications or who are concerned about recent news as these products come under scrutiny from federal regulators and they are safe for use with children of all ages.
The Organic Sinus Pillow is placed inside a pillow case to relieve sinus congestion and promote clearer breathing during sleep. Cold Comfort Crystals are sea salt crystals infused with a special blend of essential oils to create an aromatherapy. When the jar is open, the herbal aroma evaporates off the top crystals, providing soothing relief to calm coughs and ease congestion. The jar simply needs to be shaken to refresh crystals for repeated use.
These products are a real benefit to families because they can be safely used for children and adults alike. According to experts, children get the most colds - some as many as six to ten a year. By contrast, adults average two to four annually, with a greater frequency in the parents of children. Researchers at the National Institute of Health's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases say that winter is prime time for colds because the greater time spent indoors in cold weather increases the opportunity for viruses to spread among people. Also, lower humidity during these months helps cold-causing viruses to thrive and may dry the lining of the nasal passages, making them more susceptible to infection.
