What a crazy time we are having! Seasonal Allergies. Cold. Flu. And now coronavirus?!!!
It seems Spring 2020 is a giant dodgeball game. But, instead of balls, viruses and bacteria are coming at us from all angles. We have many lines of defense, such as medications, air purifiers, vitamins & minerals, and soap. Let's add another one - ESSENTIAL OILS!!!
Essential oils have been used to fight infectious diseases for thousands of years! They were THE medicines for ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians. Ancient India started reaping the benefits of essential oils as far back as 5000BC. And the Europeans were using herbs and essential oils to dodge the bubonic plague during the Middle Ages. The bubonic plague! With that in mind, there is no better time than now to call on essential oils.
Many microbes float around in the air causing illnesses like the cold, flu, and COVID-19 to spread from person to person, especially indoors. Diffusing essential oils in your home, office space, and car is a great way to kill viruses, bacteria, mold, and fungal spores in the air. Below is a short list of commonly available essential oils you could use at home.
You can also make a mix of multiple essential oils to suit your needs. There are several ready-made essential oil blends available for purchase online for use at home. Please read the ingredients and safety information before buying.
Are you ready to add the power of essential oils to your germ-fighting arsenal this spring? LET'S GO!!!
