Many of us are settling into our Back-to-School routines but are struggling to stay healthy with the onslaught of colds and allergies. That's why we've gathered our top 5 tips on how to protect from environmental stresses with natural solutions like the power of essential oils!
Essential Oils are renowned for assisting with preventative care due to their anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, and many essential oils also stimulate immune function (like Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Melaleuca/Tea Tree oil) or help remove pathogens and other toxins from the body (like Lemon, Ginger and Rosemary).
NOTE: We work exclusively with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils and the recipes below are not advised for consumption using any other brand. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
1) DIY Protective Spritzer
Protect against environmental and seasonal threats with an essential oil blend designed to purify the air, support healthy immune and respiratory function, and stimulate the body's natural antioxidant defenses. Fill a small spray bottle with distilled water and add 10-30 drops of On Guard blend or a combination of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils.
You may spritz the solution into your mouth for a sore throat, spray on hands to fight germs, mist in your space to breathe deep, or use as an effective non-toxic, all-purpose surface cleaner.
2) Breathe It In
There are many ways to purify the air with essential oils. You can inhale essential oils directly from the bottle, pour into hands and cup over your nose, or add them to your diffuser, salt rock lamp or clay jewelry. Any method is a wonderful way to soothe a stuffy nose or irritated throat. On Guard blend is great, or also the Breathe blend or any mixture of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Lemon, Cardamom and Melaleuca.
3) Immune Boosting Snack
Soak sliced apples in water and a few drops of On Guard blend or a combination of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils for a healthy, immune-boosting snack.
4) Soothing Detox Bath
Alleviate body aches with a detoxifying bath! Take a nice long soak in a bath mixed with Epsom salts and ~10 drops of essential oils such as Lavender, Geranium, Marjoram, Vetiver and/or Roman Chamomile.
5) DIY Chest Rub Blend
Create a mixture of coconut oil and essential oils such as Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Wintergreen, Rosemary or the Breathe blend and massage onto your chest and feet for a restful night's sleep.
