This is one of the most common diagnoses in terms of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Britain.

Perhaps not surprising given our climate, though there is lots of evidence that this is changing. Symptoms include those of cold such as congestion, lack of energy,poor appetite, joint pain, osteoarthritis, being overweight and obese.

It follows that the oils generally used for this are those that have been described by herbalists over the centuries as hot or warm and dry.

These include, Benzoin, Tea Tree, Caraway, Cedarwood, Fennel, Juniper, Black Pepper, Cardamom, Eucalyptus, Ginger, Marjoram, Rosemary and Thyme.

If you feel cold much of the time or suffer from lethargy, arthritic pain, poor appetite etc. consider using some of the above oils in a diffuser for ten to twenty minutes a day.
