Essential Oil Flu Bomb

This is one of my blog's most popular posts. The essential oil flu bomb -- it really, really works!!

3 drops Oregano
5 drops On Guard essential oil blend
5 drops Melaleuca
5 drops Lemon (optional)

If you feel like you are starting to come down with a cold or a flu, put these oils in an empty capsule and take internally. Repeat every 3-4 hours until you feel better again.

For children
  • Put oregano, melaleuca and OnGuard essential oil blend on their feet (1 drop of each and apply every 2-3 hours).
  • You can also can add 2 to 3 drops of On Guard essential oil blend and 2 drops Lemon essential oil to a teaspoon of honey for cold or cough relief for children.
We've been putting 1 drop of On Guard and 1 drop of Melaleuca (in addition to some other oils, like Frankincense and Balance) on the bottom of our six year old son's feet twice a day as a preventative measure since his body's immune system needs extra support.

You can purchase all of the above oils as part of doTERRA's Family Physician Kit, or purchase each oil separately. Information about ordering is here.
