Cold & Flu essentials

Cold & Flu essentials

This time of year can be a little tough as everyone goes back to work and the kids go back to school, so the germs come home and spread! Yikes! I don’t like using prescription drugs only holistic methods in this house. I wanted to share with you what I’ve been using over the past few days to keep this fever under control and stop it taking over my life. Introducing my Cold & Flu essentials!

HOT water, HOT WATEr and...

Starting each morning and drinking throughout the day, hot water with 1 drop of GINGER and 1 drop of LEMON essential oil.  I like to put a couple ice cubes in the glass to help cool it quickly so it’s instantly drinkable. 

Immunity Booster

Stop the cold and flu before it even begins!! You can boost your family’s overall immunity with this immune boosting blend!

In a 10 ml* roller bottle add:
💛 4 drops Lemon
💛 4 drops Breathe
💛 4 drops On Guard
💛 2 drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca)
💛 2 drops Frankincense
💛 1 drop Oregano


For all of the following recipes you can *cut them in half using 5ml roller bottle. 

Top with fractionated coconut oil. Roll on the spine and bottoms of the feet in the morning and before bed. During cold and flu season I also roll this on the back of the neck in the afternoon whenever we are all hanging around in the kitchen or a common area of our house.


This blend is like a cool bath in a roller bottle! Roll this on the back of your neck and bottoms of your feet, and wait 30-60 minutes. It’s incredible how fast it gets to work to cool you down. I roll this blend on nearly every hour..

In a 10 ml* roller bottle add:
💛 10 drops Lemon
💛 10 drops Breathe or Peppermint
💛 10 drops Frankincense
💛 3 drops of Oregano

Top with FCO.

COUGH soother

Whether you have a tickly cough just forming or you sound like your inhaled something just awul. Here’s a great blend to roll on your chest, upper back and bottoms of your feet to soothe that cough so you can get some sleep and recover. Say goodbye to VapoRub & Vicks, and hello to your Breathe roller!

In a 10 ml* roller bottle add:
💛 5 drops Peppermint
💛 5 drops Eucalyptus
