Boosting Your Immune System and Home with Essential Oils
It’s official, we can finally wish winter good riddance; spring has finally sprung! While this season is filled with blooming flowers and April showers, this beautiful time can still offer its own set of challenges, particularly to the immune system. Spring cleaning can help alleviate some issues, but sweeping up dust bunnies and swapping out comforters may do little to treat a scratchy throat that feels as though a few cotton balls have decided to take up permanent residence. From itchy, watery eyes to being bombarded with your own sneezing soundtrack, springtime allergies can wreak havoc on day to day activities.
This year, consider ditching the allergy medication for a more natural remedy using essential oils. Essential oils can not only be used to aid in spring cleaning, they’re also beneficial in treating some common allergy symptoms and boosting the immune system.
For Boosting the Immune System
Not only does lemon essential oil work as an excellent disinfectant and at keeping you focused, this oil is also helpful in giving the immune system a major jolt. Citrus focused essential oils can benefit your system by helping it to detox properly. If you find yourself feeling rather congested due to the change in seasons, try incorporating eucalyptus essential oil into your morning routine. This oil not only has an unforgettable fragrance, but it helps to fight bad bacteria and infections, keeping you and your respiratory system happy.
Our Immune Booster Rollerball Blend combines the strengthening powers of citrus along with eucalyptus, rosemary and cinnamon bark to keep you feeling your best, no matter what the pollen says. It’s time to get rolling.
For Cleaning Your Space and Favorite Place
Before you reach for that chemically concocted spray cleaner, think about making your own. While common household cleaners and disinfectants can keep surfaces and our environments clean, they are often filled with numerous toxins and chemicals. When using these products to clean, we are exposing ourselves to pollutants that are often difficult to flush from the body. Instead, make your own cleaners using fresh lemon juice, lemon essential oils, vinegar and distilled water. Not only does this combination clean effectively, you’ll love the fresh zesty scent. Lemon essential oils are also effective in keeping you alert, so this do-it-yourself cleaner is especially perfect for the office.
