Cold and Flu Essential Oils

Get help from aromatherapy for the cold and flu season.  The following items are to help boost your immune system and ease symptoms associated with the common cold or influenza. 

Of course, prevention is the best.  Because many essential oils have strong antimicrobial properties, they can be diffused to prevent the spread of air-borne bacterial and viruses. Antiviral essential oils (such as Revensara, Hyssop, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Clove, Oregano and Thyme) and blends (such as Four Thieves, Purify and Respiratory Blend) are very effective as preventative aids in avoiding colds as well as in helping the body defenses fight colds, once an infection has started.  Immune Blend is a powerful immune stimulant that can also increase infection resistance.
