Aromatherapy For the
Immune System

This year flu season is expected to hit harder than usual. Be prepared by supporting your Immune System. The best way to do this is by getting adequate nutrition, supplementing with Therapeutic grade essential oils, and washing your hands often.

Making sure your body has everything it needs to function correctly is essential to good health and maintaining a healthy Immune system. Eating fresh vegetables and fruit is optimum, but sometimes that isn't possible. Using a multivitamin to supplement the diet can be very helpful. Make sure the supplements are food based so the body can recognize and utilize the contents. Young living makes a few different kinds, so finding the right fit is easy. The best one for children is the Kidscents MightyVites.

Using essential oils to fortify the immune system is easy. Up to 40% of Immune system function is in the intestinal tract. Another 40% is found in the thymus gland, which produces immune-stimulating cells. Dietary supplements containing essential oils can boost immune system function. ImmuPro, Exodus II, Sulfurzyme, ImmuPower, ImmuneTone, Super C, Thyromin and Mineral Essence each have their own benefits. They can be taken together or alone, creating a regimen which can be tailored to your own individual needs and concerns.

Essential oils can be used to support the Immune system. Always be sure to use Therapeutic grade essential oils, as they have been grown with high standards, and processed without hazardous chemicals. Cheaper oils processed with lower grade plants do not have a high amount of healing compounds, and have substances that can actually poison you rather than help you. Young Living carries only Therapeutic grade essential oils.

The following oils have proven useful:

SINGLE OILS: Frankincense with ravensara, thyme, helichrysum, oregano, rosemary, chamomile, Idaho tansy, mountain savory, melissa, lavender, grapefruit, lemon, cinnamon, clove, cumin, cistus, melaluca, myrrh, myrtle, rose, vetiver or lemongrass.
BLENDS: Frankincense with Thieves, ImmuPower, Abundance, Humility, R.C., or 3 Wise Men.

Using a diffuser to reduce airborne pathogens and viruses that can overwhelm the immune system is a good way to use Essential oils for healing. Most oils need to be diluted for use topically. Always use a high quality vegetable oil such as V-6, almond or olive oil works well also. Add 1-4 drops of Essential oils to water or rice/almond milk, or use capsules to use oils internally. Follow the directions on the bottle of each oil for specific dosage information. *When using Essential oils with children, mix 1-2 drops of desired oil with 1 tbsp. of V-6 oil or other vegetable oil, then apply to the bottoms of feet, or other area of concern.*

Some of the most important products for killing germs are in the Thieves line. Read the history of Thieves here to find out it's amazing story of healing. I recommend the Thieves essential oil blend, the foaming hand soap and the waterless hand sanitizer for the back to school crowd. These three products will really help your kids to ward off the germies, without the side effects of Triclosan, the agent used in other antibacterial products. Triclosan is being held responsible in the creation of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, including the MRSA type infections we are seeing in schools all over the country. Teaching kids good hygiene is important and very necessary to stop the spread of germs. Using Thieves waterless hand sanitizer makes it easy for kids to do.
