Take Care of Yourself During Change of Weather

Hello, lovely people. I hope you are all well.

It’s getting warm here. I can see tiny teeny green leaves coming out from our grape wine. Can’t wait for the warm weather! Although I am so looking forward to the warm weather, my hay fever is having its moment. Half of my colleagues in the office are sick. I guess it happens when weather changes. I got flu few weeks ago as well. So I thought it might be a good idea to put together a post about how I deal with change of weather. Just few things I do to boost the immune system.

Remember that I am not a professional to give health advice. These are just my home remedies that I want to share with you.



I intend to drink a lot of warm water when weather changes. I think we all know the benefits from drinking water, flushing out toxins, boosting immune system, helping with healthy skin, etc.

Ginger Turmeric tea

I also drink a cup of ginger turmeric tea everyday, especially in the cold seasons. I grow some ginger and turmeric at my back yard. They come really handy. The tea can boost the immune system. Both ginger and turmeric has anti-bacterial properties and anti-inflammatory effects.


All you need is 1 tsp grated ginger, 1 tsp grated turmeric, 2 cups of water and a small saucepan. Add everything in the saucepan, bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat to medium and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Pour the tea through a strainer and enjoy. You can add honey if you like.

Mint tea

One more kind of tea I have regularly is fresh mint tea. I especially love the chocolate mint. It’s so relaxing. In addition, it helps with nose congestion and soothes the throat. I can’t have enough of it. I love it hot in winter and cold in summer.


It’s super easy to make too. You just boil some water and pour over chopped mint leaves. Leave it brew for 5-10 minutes. Pour through a strainer and enjoy. Again, you can add some honey if you like.

Eucalyptus essential oil

Eucalyptus tree is native to Australia. I love the Eucalyptus essential oil. It helps with cold, cough, running nose and sore throat. It’s essential for me to have it in my house. I use it in a diffuser in my room when I catch a cold. Sometimes I even rub a little bit around my nose when my nose congestion gets really bad.

Lanolips 101 Ointment superbalm

You know what a flu can do to your nose and your skin. I use my Lanolips 101 ointment on the skin around my nose. It will prevent flaky skin. It’s ultra medical grade lanolin. Basically, I can use it anywhere, dry lips, cuts, flaky skin. Really good stuff.  🙂

That’s a wrap. I hope it helps. Stay healthy and stay strong!








  1. Lots of water and mint tea are the way to go! Really, anything warm and cozy in the winter is a sure way to get through the winter blues. Spring will come, and make the most of it when it arrives!

  2. Mint tea is the best but I’ll definitely give that ginger and turmeric tea a try! You’re so lucky that summer’s coming for Australia, it’s starting to get colder over here…
