The most important thing to wear during air travel is a lightweight scarf around your neck. Summer or winter, it doesn’t matter and here’s why…
In Chinese Medicine, the Foot Taiyang meridian descends parallel to the spine and the Governing Vessel runs up the back of the spine. Several points on these channels are located on the back of the neck.
These points are susceptible to external conditions, like Wind.
Wind, in Chinese Medicine, is a pathogen that attacks the exterior of the body. If the body’s defenses are not strong enough to deflect it, Wind will penetrate the points and can cause disease ranging from the common cold to influenza or even pneumonia.
Wearing a scarf to keep your neck covered supplements the body’s Defensive Qi and can keep you from contracting an illness while traveling.
To further enhance immunity, add a few drops of essential oil to the scarf before wearing it. My favorites are:
These essential oils are great choices because they smell good and have antiviral properties.
