Essential oils can be used in a variety of combinations and applications to help boost your immune system and prevent colds and flu when it is going around. You can also use them to nip a cold or flu right at the onset, to prevent it from hitting you full force.
Topical Treatments to Boost Your Immune System
Lymph nodes are located around the body, particularly in the throat, groin, breasts, and under the arms. They serve as filtering centers for cleansing your blood, which helps prevent illness. Certain essential oils are great for stimulating lymph movement and supporting the cleansing action. You can assist your lymphatic system by using one or a combination of the following oils: Lavender, Bergamot, Lemon, Clove, and Tea Tree. Try our Rx Blend which combines the powerful healing properties of Clove and Lemon essential oils!
Air Therapy with Essential Oils to Help Boost Your Immune System
Another good way to help strengthen your immune system is by infusing immunity-building essential oils into the air you breathe. The best way to do this is by using an aroma diffuser as they better maintain the integrity of the essential oils for therapeutic use. They also purify the air and distribute negative ions, which helps improve oxygen flow to the brain, serving to relieve stress & fatigue, improve breathing, and help you sleep better.
