Do you stress about the health of your family every time the weather changes?
Do you have little ones that bring home every bug from childcare or school and constantly have a runny nose?
Are you forever taking days off work because either you're sick, or you can't get someone to look after your sick children?
Well, this is definitely for you!
Again, welcome and get ready to learn how essential oils can be incorporated into your every day to help boost your immune health and prevent winter illness.
Firstly, what is an essential oil?
Put simply, essential oils are volatile, aromatic compounds that are extracted from plants. These plants produce essential oils for a number of reasons, including protection, reproduction and pollination. A single drop of essential oil can contain hundreds of different chemical constituents, each having their own effect on the body physically, mentally or emotionally.*
Today, we are looking at essential oils and how they can benefit our immune health.
Fever, congestion, runny nose, coughs, fatigue, sore throat and swollen glands are all indications that you may be suffering from a cold or flu.
When you're overworked, stressed, lacking sleep, or in the case of children, still developing a mature immune system, your body lacks the ability to defend itself properly.
Since essential oils have chemical compounds that are naturally compatible with the human body, they have an ability to support your immune system.
Essential oils can be used to help in two main ways. Firstly, by naturally boosting your immune response and improving recovery time. Secondly, by easing the discomforts associated with colds and flu.
Below is a list of essential oils commonly used in immune support.

When choosing products to use for myself and my family, I always make sure that I'm getting great quality. So when I was introduced to doTERRA I did some research and discovered that they had established a reputation within the essential oil industry as having the best quality available.
They achieve this by working directly with farmers to grow and harvest plants in their natural habitat. Through the Co-impact sourcing initiative, doTERRA not only sources the best quality oils but also enriches the lives of those involved in the production.
Once harvested, each batch of oil undergoes multiple third-party testing to ensure that they are pure, potent and effective. doTERRA is so confident in their products that you can get the report on each bottle you purchase by logging into their Source to You website: https://sourcetoyou.com
