There are many things that stress us out, and fear is often at the top of the list. So many are fearful of this virus, and its complications. I prefer to be proactive in my approach to it.
First, you’ll find me an advocate of the healthy diet. Eating right feeds our bodies at the cellular level and greatly enhances our immune system’s ability to keep us healthy. “Eat your greens…” is often spoken at our dinner table.
There are essential oils we can ‘eat’ that will also boost our immune system. My favorite drink consists of water with lemon, orange, and grapefruit essential oils in it. Sooo refreshing-and good for you too. (There are many delicious recipes for refreshing drinks)
Second, cleanliness. If you come in contact with an ill person, just remember this simple activity. Wash your hands, consistently. My favorite cleanser is the foaming Thieves hand soap. It will help you cleanse, AND defend against threats to your health and well-being.
An extra boost that will help you defend your home and family is to put some Thieves essential oil directly on the bottom of your feet. (Some persons with sensitive skin need a carrier oil, but we used it straight.) Your skin will absorb the antiseptic nutrients in the oil, and you’ll go to sleep pleasantly surrounded by the fabulous mixed aroma of Cloves, Rosemary, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Cinnamon Bark.
This essential oil blend was tested at Weber State University and found to be highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-infectious. It can help the body fight the flu, colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, and sore throats.
So reduce your stress level, get some Thieves, and be prepared for a delightful, scent-ful way to combat illness this winter season.
