If anything has become more obvious to me in recent times, it's that protecting and supporting our immune systems is a non-negotiable.
Of course there are may ways in which to do this....lots of whole foods & clean eating, sleep, exercise, less stress. You know the drill.
Essential Oils are a great tool to have to help you support your immune system, here are some of our favourites:
A less obvious choice, we love lemon for its ability to stimulate the production of white blood cells - they're the little guys that help fight off infection.
The use of Rosemary dates way back to the plague of the 1300's where the whole herb helped keep people healthy. More recent studies have shown Rosemary essential oil to enhance free radical scavenging in our bodies - that helps keep our cells healthy and working as they should.
P.S - If you've not tried it before, Rosemary does smell very much like Eucalyptus!
We like the tried and tested favourites, the fact that this is an Aussie oil is a bonus! Eucalyptus was in huge demand way back in the flu outbreak of 1919. Of course since then, studies have proven Eucalyptus to have amazing anit-fungal, anti-bacterial & anti-viral properties.
Others we love:
Just a few drops of these essential oils in your diffuser or diluted and applied topically will help keep you and your family well this cold and flu season.
