Support Your Immune System with Essential Oils
When the kiddos have a cold I like diffusing some immune supportive oils. Diffusing essential oils is a very gentle way to provide some extra immune support. Here is what I diffuse…
Immune Support Diffuser Blend
2 drops of Melaleuca (Tea Tree oil)
2 drops of Spearmint
1 drop of Ylang Ylang
Essential Oil Benefits: Melaleuca is a purifying and immune supportive oil. It can be used with your regular cleaning regimen or diffused to help purify the air in the room. Spearmint is very uplifting, fresh, and cleansing. Ylang Ylang is an oil that helps with relaxing, we all know that rest is the best thing when someone is sick.
Where to buy therapeutic grade essential oils.
Vitamin C and D
Vitamin C and D are also very important for the immune system. We will dose ourselves and the kids with both vitamin C and D when support is needed. The vitamin C we use is a sodium ascorbate that is non-gmo and in a powder form. The easiest form of vitamin D for kids are the drops because they don’t require much. For adults you can take a vitamin D with K2 for max absorption, also non-gmo.
Rest is Best
Most of all be sure to get plenty of rest. Sometimes rest doesn’t come easy when we are mildly sick because we can think of a million other things that should be done. Or, if you are anything like me you have children to care for. When sleep wont come I reach for Insomnitol it has melatonin in it which is also very good for your immune system.
I sure hope you or the kiddos are feeling better soon! Blessings!
