Getting Your Smell and Taste Back
Getting your smell and taste back after you have had the virus can be difficult. The virus can cause possible irritation of your Olfactory nerve which transmits information relating to smell. Your sense of smell and taste work together to make food enjoyable or warn that it’s gone bad. You can retrain your sense of smell and taste by using essential oils.
The first thing that you need to do is get some organic coconut oil and a Q-tip. You will dip the Q-tip in the organic coconut oil making sure to get a good amount of coconut oil on the Q-tip. Then you will rub the Q-tip all over the inside of your nostril. By doing this you are putting down a protective barrier so the essential oils won’t burn your nose.
Then you put a couple of drops of Rosemary essential oil on the end of the Q-tip and rub that on the inside of your nose. Rosemary essential oil contains Rosmarinic acid which has anti-inflammatory properties. It has the potential to reduce inflammation in the Olfactory nerve.
Next you will put a couple of drops of Peppermint essential oil on the end of the Q-tip and rub that on the inside of your nose. Peppermint essential oil can be extracted from the leaves of the peppermint plant and has a sharp odor that’s cool and refreshing.
Another thing you can try is Zinc. Zinc can be very beneficial in helping to get your smell and taste back but only if you are using a zinc with Zinc Chelate, Vitamin B-6 and Molybdenum. Zinc will naturally kick copper out of your tissues and copper in excess amounts can cause inflammation so the molybdenum helps to remove copper from your body. Vitamin B-6 is very good for the nerves so when we are dealing with the loss of taste and smell one of the things we are dealing with is the Olfactory nerve.
