Essential Oils to Boost the Immune System

We know that when we take care of ourselves through diet and exercise that our body systems receive what they need to take better care of us. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true: when we don’t eat well and exercise, we limit our body’s capacity. It is a never-ending cycle, especially when it comes to our immune systems. The good news for us lies in an additional option—many different essential oils can help play a role in boosting and supporting your immune system.*

When we talk about the immune system, we are actually talking about a complicated network of organs and cells. Several organs and cells make up the immune system, including your lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, lymphocytes (white blood cells known as B- and T-cells), the thymus, and leukocytes (another type of white blood cell). Each piece works together to defend and protect the body.

To keep each element of your immune system on track, doTERRA offers an Immune Support Kit. Along with the probiotic supplement PB Assist®+, this kit includes all of the most popular doTERRA essential oils known to help protect your body from environmental and other threats.

• doTERRA Breathe® (5 mL): Add it directly to a diffuser or apply it to your chest to help minimize the effects of seasonal and environmental threats.

• Oregano Touch (10 mL): Use to support a healthy respiratory function.*

• Copaiba (15 mL): Put one to two drops in a Veggie Capsule or the same amount under your tongue in order to support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, digestive and respiratory systems.*

• doTERRA On Guard® (15 mL): This powerful blend can be used daily to support the body’s natural antioxidant defenses.*

• doTERRA On Guard®+ Softgels: Contains the doTERRA On Guard blend to support both healthy immune and respiratory function*

• doTERRA On Guard® Sanitizing Mist: Use to kill 99.9 percent of the germs and bacteria you encounter in your environment.

We’ve noted which of these oils is already included in the doTERRA On Guard blend, so you are aware of exactly what oils you’re putting in your body.

Take Time for You with Lavender and dōTERRA Serenity®

Through the centuries, people have been given specific meanings to flowers. In Victorian times, this idea was taken to the next level; people spent time carefully crafting bouquets to convey a particular message, just as they would a letter. The lavender flower has some popular common meanings, including purity and serenity, while the message it gives is that of refinement, royalty, and grace. This message goes hand-in-hand with the soothing and relaxing benefits of Lavender oil, especially in taking care of your mind and body.

Just as lavender plants need full sunlight and well-drained soil to thrive, we need emotional nourishment, and enough sleep. Fortunately, Lavender oil shares with us several well-researched benefits to help with both. One study shows that diffusing Lavender essential oil during your bedtime routine can improve how long you sleep and sleep satisfaction. It likewise has an impact on quality of sleep, decreasing how often you wake during the night, and reducing your levels of overall fatigue.

For your skin, Lavender can be the answer to common skin issues, like occasional skin irritations and minor burns. This is most likely the reason that you often see Lavender oil as an ingredient in skin care items.

An Increase in Serenity

Another message of the lavender flower is serenity. If you love Lavender, the doTERRA Serenity blend utilizes all of the Lavender benefits in addition to other wood, herb, and floral relaxing oils. It can be used aromatically and topically (though not internally like Lavender alone) for creating a restful mood and a peaceful environment for sleep. It’s wise to have on hand in times of tension or stress. When diffused, doTERRA Serenity is an especially comforting and calming oil.

Self-Care Spa Night

Whether you love the pure scent of Lavender oil by itself, or you love it in the doTERRA Serenity blend, use either oil in the following DIYs designed to help you take time out for yourself in whatever time you have.
