There is so much I want to share with you about this month’s featured Essential Oil. I’m super excited to finally reveal this gem of an oil, and that it will only be available to our subscribers in all our November boxes. This botanical oil which we’ve aptly named TOTAL DEFENSE is loaded with health-inducing intelligence. So here is the scoop:
5 ESSENTIAL OILS IN ONE BLEND
Yep, it’s a blend of five therapeutic-grade essential oils that are scientifically documented to be highly anti-infectious, antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic. This potent oil blend is a powerful way to support your family’s health and wellness. Two of the oils found in the TOTAL DEFENSE Oil Blend, Cinnamon and Clove have been confirmed in multiple studies to be incompatible with most viruses and bacteria, which can not live in their presence.
In addition to Cinnamon, Clove, TOTAL DEFENSE also includes Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. This combination of healing oils covers a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity and contains properties that strengthen the immune system. The Lemon-Eucalyptus-Rosemary blend is one of nature’s most powerful natural home remedies for flu, colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throat, strep, toothache, cuts, poison ivy. It also is a powerful stimulant to the immune system.
HOW TO USE TOTAL DEFENSE OIL
Diffusing TOTAL DEFENSE Oil daily, rubbing it into your skin, and using it to disinfect around your home can help keep you and your family healthy.
Diffusion: Diffusing is a great way to get this healing oil blend into the respiratory system. Inhaling diffused oils strengthens the immune and respiratory systems, which are often the target of bacteria and viruses. Purifying the air adds a valuable level of protection and support in the health and wellness of your family. Many germs that travel through the air are linked to common ailments such as the cold and flu.
In addition to diffusing throughout the day, you can diffuse therapeutic-grade essential oils in the bedroom at night during sleep. It is a wonderful way to support the respiratory and immune system if someone is fighting an infection.
Anointing with Essential Oils: The Bible and other historical texts mention anointing loved ones with aromatic oils and spices for protection against illness and disease. This has been practiced by families for centuries. Just a drop or two goes a long way!
Massage or Topical Application: This healing oil can be diluted and massaged into the skin to help protect against the germs that cause illness. It is also very beneficial in the care of illness. Two very effective areas to massage are the reflex areas or vita-flex points on the feet, for example the lungs, sinus, bronchials, ears, etc., and also along the spine where bacteria and viruses tend to hibernate.
Some Practical Tips:
Test for sensitivity. Cinnamon and clove oil are powerful oils and could cause a reaction in some people. Diluting this essential oil in vegetable or carrier oil (we like Jojoba) before applying to the skin is recommended. The bottom of the feet is always the safest place to use and test oils, especially on children and those with known sensitivities or allergies. For your health and safety, always test first!
Disinfect and Clean: TOTAL DEFENSE oil diluted in water or vinegar is an amazing all purpose house cleaner. Kills germs and odors safely and naturally.
FINAL NOTE: Remember, all essential oils are potent, and only a tiny amount of oil is needed. If you have a medical condition, always consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Do not use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
