Immune System Blend/Cleanse
Are you or someone in your family feeling and looking run down? Do you suspect that your immune system could use some support? On Guard, Oregano, Melaleuca (Tea Tree) and Lemon essential oils are the go-to oils to assist my family’s immune system.
It could look or feel like mental fog, occasional sleeplessness, digestive discomfort, aches and/or muscular discomfort, head and neck tension, skin sensitivity or throat irritation and discomfort. Through our own experience we always feel more vibrant and well when we eat a diet full of real foods, free from processed foods, preservatives and other synthetic additives. So we always suggest considering diet first and foremost. However, if you feel like your immune system could do with some extra support at this point, then you might like to follow our plan of action.
- 2 drops On Guard blend – supports body’s natural antioxidant defences and supports respiratory function;
- 2 drops Oregano essential oil – supports healthy digestion, respiratory function and is high in anti-oxidants;
- 2 drops Lemon essential oil – cleanses the body, aids digestion and supports respiratory function; and
- 2 drops Melaleuca (Tea Tree) essential oil – supports health immune function and protects against environmental threats.
- Either Fractionated Coconut oil or Veggie Capsules.
Children (under the feet) over the age of two place the single oils (together) in a 10ml roller ball and fill with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
Then place the On Guard blend in a seperate 10ml roller ball and fill with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
We roll the single oils under one foot and the On Guard blend under the other foot.
Adults can follow the same protocol (under the feet). We up the amount of Essential Oils in the roller ball to about 10 drops of each essential oil. OR
The 2 drops of each oil can be placed in a veggie capsule and taken with some water.
Children above the age of two (under the feet) The first few days we might do this three times a day and then taper off to once a day by the 4th day and continue to apply the oils under the feet for 10 days do not use this blend for more than 10 days in a 30 day period because of the Oregano Essential oil.
Adults and older children over the age of 5 (under the feet) same as children however, we increase the amount of essential oil in the rollerball to 10 drop of each essential oil OR
We take the Veggie Capsules up to three times per day for the first few days and (always depending on how we feel) then taper off to just once per day by the 4th day and continue to take the blend for 10 days.
- This should be done for MAX 10 days in a 30 day period. Oregano oil is quite intense so give it a rest after 10 days use.
An alternative after the 10 days is to switch to Thyme Essential Oil or Frankincense Essential Oil in place of the Oregano.
- These oils are powerful cleansers for the body and some people may notice some responses such as head tension, skin irritation or low/irritable moods but this is likely your body cleansing itself of unwanted toxins and substances. Always listen to your body, drink plenty of water, eat plenty of healthy real foods and cease the protocol if you feel unwell.
This concoction has helped us many times. As we’ve progressed toward a more natural lifestyle we have found that we have needed this less and less because we are feeling more vibrant and well. If you have any questions I would love to hear from you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
