Day 94: Immunity boost in a roller bottle

About two weeks ago, when my parents were in town, I felt like getting sick. I am sure you know the feeling that is creeping up, that slight body ache, feeling extra tired, and sniffles coming and going. So I used my immunity boost roller bottle for the first time. It is made with the above pictured oils of lemon, thieves, oregano, frankincense, and melaleuca alternifolia (aka tea tree oil). The oils are mixed with a carrier oil in a roller bottle for easier use on the kids and me. And using a roller bottle will also help you save every drop of the bottle for the good use they are intended for.

The lemon helps breaking up the mucus and soothes a sore throat, which the thieves helps with, also. Thieves is a blend of multiple oils and it smells heavenly. It can boost your overall immunity, helps kill bacteria and germs, and supports the body's natural defense. So usually, I would tell you to take thieves when you feel like getting sick, and oregano once you are sick already. Putting both in the same mix is a win win situation. Because oregano is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antiviral is a great fighter during a cold. The frankincense eases sore muscles and boosts the immune system. Melaleuca alternifolia is also known as tea tree oil, which relieves colds, supports the respiratory system, and cleanses and purifies.

All together, this is a powerful mix. I rolled it on my feet for three days every morning and night, and even once or twice more during the day, and I was fine on the forth day.
I love that I have found these oils that help me and my family to stay healthy or get back to healthy when we need it. I love that we can help ourselves without calling the doctor (not that I would have done that anyways). And most of all, I love that I am learning more about plants - plants and I have not the greatest relationship, but they are soooooo useful. I wish I would have 'grown up' earlier to help us be more healthy.
