This time of year we begin using our immune boosting oils much more as the temperatures drop and fluctuate as we are used to living here in Ontario Canada!
I have a variety of roller bottles I use with our kids and the Immune Boost I will often mix up each time I refill.
When I refilled their immune boost this time I added in: On Guard, Tea Tree, Manuka and Arborvitae. I selected the oils intuitively, also knowing their physical capabilities.
On Guard – Emotionally is the Oil of Protection. It is one that gets a lot of use in our home and shop during the late fall and winter seasons. I contribute a lot of our health to this beautiful blend. This blend supports healthy immune and respiratory function and can be used internally as well as topically (with a carrier oil) and in the diffuser aromatically. When used in a spray cleaner this blend is also a powerful surface cleaner with a beautifully uplifting and energizing aroma. This blend contains Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf and Rosemary Leaf/Flower essential oils.
Tea Tree – Emotionally is the Oil of Energetic Boundaries. This oil is incredible for purifying and cleansing. I love using this oil for anything skin. Tea Tree can be used internally, topically and aromatically in the diffuser.
Manuka – This oil isn’t always available, but its another power house oil for our health. Emotionally is the Oil of Being Upheld. “Manuka also offers powerful healing energy to bind up wounds, soothe troubled hearts and nurture souls back into a state of centeredness.” “Manuka offers energetic safety and shielding from the intense problems all around that individuals feel powerless to change.” (source – Emotions and Essential Oils). Manuka is a grounding oil that helps center energy, emotions and helps promote courage and inner strength. This oil is also beneficial for skin.
Arborvitae – A beautiful woodsy oil that is sourced right here in Canada! Known emotionally as the Oil of Divine Grace. This oil smells like camp fire and is a powerfully cleansing to our environment when used in a diffuser or spray bottle (cleaning) and when used topically. Arborvitae is known as the “tree of life”.
I base my blends, now, on my intuition. I have been using oils for over 6 years in our home and have a knowledge of blend recipes as well as which oils we have used on our kids (all of them) in the past 6 years. So for this blend, I used 15 drops On Guard, 5 drops Tea Tree, 2 Manuka and 3 Arborvitae and then topped with coconut oil. I run this oil blend down their spines and while doing it on my neck as well.
(Please note – when referring to internal use of essential oils this is in reference to doTERRA Essential Oils – please do not take any other oils internally unless you are 100% confident they are safe to do so. This is one of the reasons we use and trust doTERRA for our health!).
