It is better to prevent an illness than to cure it so try this blend of immune-boosting oils to avoid catching any germs in the first place. Add the following oils to an oil burner to gently scent the room. Use your oil burner (also called a diffuser) on a daily basis, especially during the cold season.

  • 2 drops lemon
  • 2 drops grapefruit
  • 2 drops eucalyptus

Note: As with all use of essential oils, there are some safety precautions to follow. Aromatherapy essential oils are extremely strong and should never be applied neat to the skin or taken internally unless advised by a fully qualified professional. If you have sensitive skin it’s a good idea to perform a patch test with your chosen oils, making sure they’re properly diluted in a carrier oil. If there’s no reaction after 24 hours then you can safely use the oils.

If you are pregnant or have underlying health issues it’s always a good idea to seek the advice of a qualified aromatherapist to find out which oils are suitable or even speak to a health professional for advice. Extra precautions should be used when treating the elderly or the very young. Once again, it’s best to get advice on the most suitable oils to choose.
