5 Must Have Essential Oils For Cold and Flu Season

5 Must Have Essential Oils For Cold and Flu Season

Cold and flu season can really wipe us all out! Once it hits one of us, sure enough the whole house ends up with it. But it somehow always hits the husbands the worst! Am I right, ladies? I like to use essential oils to help get us through (or possibly even avoid) being sick!

If you aren’t familiar with essential oils, they are the most natural fragrances on the market derived from the fruits, seeds, flowers, bark, stems, roots, leaves or other parts of a plant. These oils have been used for centuries for both their healing and aromatic benefits.

Before you buy an essential oil be sure that it is 100% pure, natural, AND of the highest quality, making it appropriate for use in aromatherapy. This might take a little research on the brand, but I promise it’s worth the effort.

Not all oils are created equal. And more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality. Some companies pay their distributors 40% of the price of the oil, making a 40% mark up to you, the consumer.

If you can’t tell already, essential oils are one of my passions! This is the diffuser I have in my home. I love the sleek look of the wood and they have many different styles to choose from!

I love Plant Therapy for their high quality oils. Plant Therapy’s standards of quality are some of the strictest in the industry. They also have organic and Kid Safe lines and synergies (blends of more than one essential oil). I have tried quite a few brands, and the fragrances of Plant Therapy’s oils are by far the best! I promise you won’t be disappointed!

AND they always offer free shipping!

I put together this list of must have essential oil synergies to get you and your family through cold and flu season.
