I would like to share another blend of essential oils I often use. My children don’t get sick very often and I believe this is because we eat well, get lots of rest and use essential oils! We get a couple mild colds a year so whenever they are feeling under the weather or even starting to feel off I have my essential oils going. I will use a diffuser as a preventive and when they are full on sick I use the humidifier.
As a preventive:
In a diffuser mix with water
4 drops lavender
4 drops bergamot
4 drops eucalptus
Light a tea light candle underneath
In a humidifier, I would use more oils as they are diffused more slowly and they would just need more at this point. I think the reason Emalee doesn’t have asthma anymore is because of the essential oils opening up her bronchi and work as an anti-inflammatory. My other children have never had respiratory problems or had a cold turn into something worse, like pneumonia because the oils really help open up the lungs, clear the nose and let them get a more peaceful sleep. I should mention I do rotate the essential oils I do use so no one becomes desensitized. Everything in moderation, right?!
I have listed some more information below about the essential oils of lavender, bergamot and eucalyptus.
