I don’t know about you, but I cringe every time I hear that something nasty is going around. Whenever someone in our family used to scratchy throat and a stuffy nose or some other unmentionables, it seemed that it went through every single one of us! GAH! It takes FOREVER to cycle through a family of seven.
Since I’ve been using essential oils, I now have a weapon against the nasty bugs going around.
First, it’s smart to do preventative care. I’ve now made it a habit to rub one drop of the Protective Blend oil on each kiddo’s back (along the spine) each morning when everyone gets dressed. Also, I diffuse a few drops of the Protective Blend in my diffuser for a couple hours each morning….when I remember. Having the oils in our bodies each day is great at boosting our immune systems. Also, if we are heading out to a home school group outing or any other crowded event, I put a drop of the Protective Blend on the bottoms of each kid’s feet before we go.
I’ve noticed that we stay way healthier since using oils and for that I’m super grateful. But we are not perfect beings living in a perfect world, so we will occasionally catch something. If we nab it right away, it goes away quickly and doesn’t usually spread to anyone else. Oh, happy day!
For those times that we are first coming down with the tell-tale symptoms, we take this “bomb”:
- 4 drops lemon
- 2 drops melaleuca
- 2 drops oregano
- 2 drops protective blend
- 2 drops frankincense
Just put the amount of drops of each oil into an empty veggie capsule and take with water. So simple. I’ve given my husband one of these when he came home from work and had that scratchy throat/runny nose thing that happens when you are first coming down with something. I ran into the kitchen and made him a capsule that night and again the next morning. When he came home from work the next day, he had ZERO symptoms! Woot! I’ve warded off THREE possible invasions so far with this awesome concoction! For the younger kiddos that can’t swallow pills, I just cut the “dosage” in half and rub the oils on the bottom of their feet and on their spine with a carrier oil. I use the fractionated coconut oil, but you can use any coconut oil. (Fractionated coconut oil is always at a liquid state so it’s easier to use.) I tend to get sinus issues and I’ve been using this “bomb” as well as putting a drop of peppermint oil under my tongue a few times and presto! It’s gone within a day or two (at most).
Since I fell in love with the Protective Blend and all it’s done for our immune systems, I’m slowly growing my collection and have included the Protective Blend toothpaste, hand soap, and throat drops. LOVE IT! 🙂
