Tis’ the season for illness. I am talking, coughs and colds. And this is about the only thing about this season that I don’t enjoy! Give me all the of colorful leaves, the sweater weather, the Christmas cheer, the lights and the coziness that winter brings. But colds. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
The common cold can last anywhere from 5-15 days, and even longer! I know a few people right now who have had a lingering cough since August, yes you heard me… AUGUST! Being sick doesn’t really sound like something anyone wants to deal with. So how do we protect ourselves. Well, there are the common sense things like washing your hands frequently, sanitizing door knobs and handles, but there has to be something else!
I was the type of person who was getting sick every couple of months. I could never seem to stay healthy, regardless of the fact that I ate well and took care of my body. Since using this little trick, I have been safe from the common cold for almost a year! That’s right you heard me, I have not been sick in over a year, and I am so grateful.
Whats the secret? Thieves! Thieves is a blend of essential oils from Young Living that acts as an immune boosting oil. It smells like a combination of cinnamon bark, cloves and lemon. It works wonders for killing germs in the air and keeping my immune system up. I diffuse this weekly in our home (even more during the fall because of the cinnamon) and I also make a Thieves tea once a week.
In addition I have made an Immunity Roller that I roll on my spine (and my daughters spine) daily to keep us protected. We rub on our spine, because the spine hosts all the neuro pathways to the rest of your body!It’s a quick part of our morning routine that helps ensure we stay healthy, and smell great!
Immunity Roller Recipe
10ml glass bottle ( you should only be storing oils in glass bottles due to their high potency)
Carrier Oil to top off the bottle- any oil will do- olive, avocado, or Young Living V6 carrier oil
10 drops of Thieves Essential Oil
5 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
5 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
This little blend has been a very valuable addition to our routines. If you want to get your hands on one, or need help getting started with Young Living essential oils, hit me up! I’d love to help you on your path to holistic wellness.
