I don’t know about you guys but here where I’m at, everybody has something it seems. Or has caught something that is going around! Especially right now with all that is going on. I am a pharmacist so ALL kinds of people are coming in to get their medication for sickness.
Now, don’t get me wrong, medication has it’s place, and sometimes it is needed. But what if there was something that would help you combat some of this crud without having to go to the doctor? There are! Essential oils do just that and here are 4 essential oils to help you combat this crud! Especially protective blend essential oil. This oil is a power house essential oil blend. That will help keep you and your family from getting sick and also help them feel better.
1. Protective Blend Essential Oil
This oil has many different names with many different companies, but it is called Protective Blend, with any company. And there is a reason that this is the name across all companies. It protects against all those germs that bring the crud. If there is any one oil you need, it is this one! There are a couple things that it does. It protects your family from all the sickness (hence the name). And it also makes the sickness shorter in length.
I love to put it on the bottoms of my feet and my boys’ feet every single day, even when we are healthy, to keep the crud and sickness away. Essential oils go on bottoms of feet because that is where your biggest pores are, so it can start working right away. Also, your feet are your least sensitive part of the body (since you walk on them all day) so no chance of a sensitivity. Meaning your skin on your feet will not be itchy from the essential oil.
As A Cleaner and Internal Use
This oil can also be diffused in the air to get those germs floating around. Plus, it can be made into a cleaner to put on all your surfaces. Just imagine getting all those germs out of your house. We have used this all winter and my younger son and I were the only ones that have caught anything, and it was just a little cold. That we used the Protective Blend, and it went away in a couple days.
If you are open to trying the protective blend essential oil internally, you can either, put two drops in a shot glass with a little bit of water and throw it back! It is a little burnish on your throat, but to me, it lets me know it is working. Also, if you do not want to put the oil in water, you can put it in a veggie capsule and then swallow the capsule. These are the empty capsules I use.
2. Frankincense Essential Oils
Frankincense has been around for centuries and is even mentioned in the bible. And do you know why? Because of its healing power. I think Frankincense can heal anything and everything! Frankincense is called the king of oils because it can support the whole body. It also goes on the bottoms of our feet for healing and to kick up that immunity.
It really drives in the other oils so they can all work better. When in doubt always use Frankincense. Along with going on the bottoms of feet, it can also be diffused to promote overall wellness. It can also be used to help with cough! Go check out the recipe here!
Another great thing about frankincense is it can be combined with other essential oils. So you can use the frankincense and the protective blend mixed together. And if you add the oregano (which I will talk about next) that is just an extra boost of help to combat the crud.
Oregano is one of the most powerful essential oils. It has a ton of antioxidants that work to keep the body healthy. When you are sick it works as a powerhouse to flush out the germs, and make you feel better quicker. It also, helps clear up respiratory issues from sickness.
Oregano is very powerful so it always has to be diluted with a carrier oil (I use coconut oil). It doesn’t have the best smell so you probably won’t be diffusing this one! I put this one on the bottoms of our feet with a carrier oil. I used to not like the smell of Oregano but now I do because it is the smell of getting better!
Some brave people do take oregano internally. I am not one of those people. But if you want to, put a couple drops in a veggie capsule so you do not taste the oregano. It helps a ton with getting that sickness out quicker.
Most people do not know about Melissa oil because it is a little more pricey. But this oil is a powerhouse when it comes to combating the crud. It supports a healthy immune system, and is also a strong antiviral. So if you have some sort of viral infections, it is going to help out. This one smells really good so you can diffuse it or apply it to forehead, shoulders or chest. Of course you can also apply to bottoms of feet. Since it is an antiviral it helps with other viruses such as cold sores. Read about it here.
Now, each of these oils could be used separately, but what I like to do is put them all together! Put about 10 drops of each of these oils into a 10ml rollerball bottle and top it off with coconut oil. If you want to see some other immune booster recipes check out my friend’s post. Then you have all you need to combat a cold or the flu, or any crud that comes along.
