Aurelia Refine & Polish Miracle Balm – My cold remedy

They say with little kids at home you are constantly sick. Now I am happy to report that this is absolutely not true for me, I rarely catch the kids bugs.

But in early March I came down with a cold, and it honestly was the worst cold I had in years. Coughing, sneezing and constantly blowing my nose. Pretty soon the skin around it was sore, red and full of dry patches.
