Back to school usually means our germ exposure ramps up. We have a few tips on how to use essential oils to keep you clear of bugs, grogginess and fatigue! Essential oils have amazing immunity boosting properties.
Essential Oils are powerful antiseptics and regenerators. They are relaxing, stress reducing, and sleep improving. All these things fight against stress, which is the biggest culprit in a weak immune system.
1. Eden’s Garden 5 Fighting Blend: This is a blend of lemon, cinnamon leaf, rosemary, clove and eucalyptus. Diffuse this in your home. Put drops of the oil on your pulse points: at the bottom of your feet, at your wrists and behind the ears.
2. Rosemary Essential Oil: Rosemary is an excellent liver cleanser (and our livers do so much work to clean out the bad stuff!). It is also an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Diffuse Rosemary Oil to reap its benefits.
3. Lemon & Grapefruit Essential Oils: Both these citrus essential oils are antiseptic, antibacterial, anti inflammatory, stress reducing, and energizing! Put a few drops of either or both in your water and sip on them for the day.
4. Eucalyptus Essential Oil: Eucalyptus has been revered for its immune boosting properties for centuries. It improves respiratory circulation. It is an antioxidant and also pain relieving.
