Fill a capsule with:
- 2 drops of lemon;
- 2 drops of lavender;
- 2 drops of peppermint; and
- 2 drops of melaleuca (if you are feeling particularly bad).
For children, you can put these same oils on their feet (in addition to frankincense), and diffuse OnGuard and Breathe.

You can also get these oils as part of the Family Physician Kit, and of course, they can also be purchased individually.
