5 Powerhouse Essential Oils for Supporting Immunity Against Colds and Flu.

Winter is prime time for viruses in many parts of the world. Fortunately, essential oils offer us powerful ways to stay healthy.

Essential Oil Blend for Cold and FluThere are many essential oils that can combat microbes and support health at the same time, but you don’t actually need a huge collection.

There are five “powerhouse oils” that you can make so many blends with!

  • Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)
  • Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
  • Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)

How can you use them?

You can make a simple inhaler with Eucalyptus and Sweet Orange, to carry with you and use throughout the day.

Or diffuse Frankincense and Lavender to help destroy airborne microbes. Your house will be healthier and will smell amazing!

One of my favorite diffuser recipes is from my 3-hour video class, “How To Protect Your Family from Colds and Flu.”

It’s a diffuser blend called. . .

No One Gets Sick in This House!

  • 5 drops Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)
  • 5 drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
  • 6 drops Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)

When evening sets in, I switch over to the nighttime version, which is a little less stimulating (but no less immune-supportive). That one is called. . .

Everyone Gets a Good Night’s Sleep

  • 6 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • 8 drops Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
  • 4 drops Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)

Love the idea of using essential oils for colds and flu?
Want to help your family prevent sickness, or to get healthy more quickly?

You'll learn so much in our 3-Hr Video Class:
How to Protect Your Family from Colds and Flu Using Essential Oils

Each blend in “How To Protect Your Family from Colds and Flu” has a children’s version with adjusted oils and drop counts, and you’ll learn how to identify good essential oil substitutions for each recipe. The video class is $50, and you can watch it as many times as you like. It's great to take a “refresher course” when next year’s cold and flu season comes around!

Breathe deep and enjoy winter!
