As you all know over the past year+ I have come to LOVE these amazing essential oils derived from nature. Essential oils are to plants as what blood is to an animal. They carry nutrients, oxygen and life giving energy to all areas of the plant, just as our blood does for us.
With that said, it is no surprise that I go to essential oils to support my family’s immunity system. Essential oils have incredible healing properties that are powerful and beneficial. So with the winter months officially upon us there are bound to be a few viruses floating around. So here are 6 essential oils to help boost your immunity:
Purification does just what it says…it purifies the air. By diffusing purification you can help support your family’s immune system aromatically.
Lavender essential oil is known as the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils because it is the most used essential oil today for so many reasons. One of the uses that it is the most well-known for is calming and soothing. Lavender can help support better sleep, which in turn will allow your body to heal and restore.
Diffusing the oil in your bedroom or put a little on your feet to help support you with an overall sense of well-being.
Frankincense essential oil is known to support the immune system by proliferating white blood cells and reducing inflammation which is known to be a primary risk factor for chronic disease.
When taken internally Frankincense Vitality essential oil supports well-being and normal cellular health. Take Frankincense Vitality internally as a dietary supplement by adding 1-2 drops to a vegetable capsule. You can also add it to water, juice, or in your daily shot of NingXia Red.
HERE ARE MY TOP THREE!
Thieves Vitality essential oil supports overall wellness and a healthy immune system with just a few drops when ingested. Add 1-2 drops to a vegetable capsule and take daily or as needed. You can also add a drop to tea, coffee, oatmeal, or other breakfast options.
You can also use Thieves topically and aromatically to ward off the ickies before they even begin. And if the ickies do make an appearance you can use Thieves to clean all surfaces while aiding in the support of a healthy immune system.
Oregano essential oil provides protection against viral infections which means it supports a healthy immune system. This boost to the immune system helps to defend against viral infections and even autoimmune disorders. Oregano essential oil also stimulates the production and function of white blood cells which are the body’s main line of defense.
Lemon essential oil promotes health, healing, and energy. It has strong antiviral properties which help to support the immune system against the ickies. Add a little Lemon Vitality to your glass of water each morning to help cleanse and clear out the blood, and rid the body of toxic buildup.
MY GO-TO ROLLER BOTTLE RECIPE
I have two young kids in school and we know that schools are basically just science experiments to see how fast a virus can wreak havoc! My children also do not get the flu shot so I need to be extra careful that I am arming them with a defense and boosting their immune systems.
I’d like to share with you my blend for an immunity booster and if you’d like to try it out yourself leave me a comment and I’ll get one out to you FREE!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 10ml Roller Bottle
- 10 Drops Thieves
- 10 Drops Oregano
- 10 Drops Lemon
- Carrier Oil of choice (Unfractionated Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Young Living V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex)
Simply put 10 drops of each essential oil into the 10ml roller bottle and fill the rest with your carrier oil. Give it a little shake each time you use it. I like to roll the bottoms of our feet (especially in the arch) a few swipes at night and morning. This way we are fighting any immune attackers while we sleep and we are armed the next day!
For my roller bottles I love the look of amber so I like these:
