Essential oils for the cold and flu season
Not many people are talking about the cold and flu this year with Covid being the number one virus to be leery of. However, as the seasons change and pollen is high in the air, colds, and cases of flu are popping up everywhere along with hay fever and allergies. I use essential oils all the time and here are my go-to’s to help with these pesky viruses.
To use the oils most effectively, dilute them with an organic carrier oil such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. Rub the mixture on the chest, back, neck, sinuses, or vita flex points on the feet. See the image below. These are points in the feet that use the reflex system of the internal body controls to release tensions, congestions, and maladjustments. For more information see the work of Stanley Burroughs in his book Healing for the Age of Enlightenment.
Diffusing these oils can also be beneficial, especially while you are sleeping. YoungLiving can only be purchased if you are a member, but their membership starter kit offerers a great diffuser and amazing oils. My member number is 1322248 if you decide to become a member.

Not all oils are created equally and many you find in the stores come from a poor source and are not processed in a way that allows the oils to help you heal. Essential oils should come from a pure, therapeutic-grade source. So much goes into making these oils pure. The soil it is grown in, the harvesting methods, the location of the plants, and even the time of harvest. When the oils are not processed the way they should be, they have little if any healing effects. Plus, the human body vibrates at certain frequencies and pure essential oils work because they help the body return to its normal frequency. The brain operates at 72-90 MHz for example and when we are sick those numbers decrease. Essential oils in their purest form return the brain to its normal frequency.
