As the colder months creep in, our bodies become increasingly vulnerable to falling sick, due to external pollutants and stress-related issues causing our immune system to weaken.
Therefore we should use this time of the year to find effective ways to boost our immune system and to help us safeguard the body against some of the common issues such as cold, flu, fever, congestion and many other respiratory problems.
Make Aromatherapy your first line of defence this winter.
Although there are many products out there that can assist you in building immunity, using pure essential oils is one of the most effective and efficient ways to keep yourself well & safe. Essential Oils are derived through steam distillation from different parts of plants, and they come with a copious amount of healing properties.
Essential Oils have inherent properties such as being antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, relieve colds & congestions etc due to which they help keep us safe from infections. These oils also support stimulating the immune system and clearing indoor air of pollutants. Apart from the obvious, they also help reduce stress & anxiety, therefore, making our healing process faster.
Some of the powerful essential oils that can be used for improving immunity are:
HOW TO USE :
Mix 30 drops of the Essential Oil in 50 ml of a base oil and apply. For kids under 5, reduce it to 10 drops in 50 ml of base oil.
These essential oils can be used to protect the immune system on a physical, mental and spiritual level. In order to take maximum benefits of essential oils make sure that the oils you buy are from reliable sources that you trust, do your research on the brand and the owners to make an informed decision.
The thumb rule to keep in mind for all Essential Oil usage is the dilution should be kept at 3%. Essential Oils are very strong and potent and should be used sparingly. Please maintain caution on usage.
