This month, Marie is focusing on the best essential oils to boost our immune system through winter time.
Ravintsara (cinnamomum camphora) contains lots of 1.8 cineole. This is an anti-infectious, antiviral, expectorant, anti-tussive essential oil and a powerful immune stimulant. It can be use in diffuser, or topically on the chest with carrier base oil (5 drops for 5 ml). Rubbing under the feet would also be a good option.
Bergamot (citrus bergamia) is top oil for the immune system. Antiseptic, antibacterial, antidepressant, boosting white blood cells, it is an uplifting essential oil. As it is phototoxic (containing bergaptene), it should not exceed 2 drops for 20 ml base oil topically if going to the sun. Can be use in diffuser, or massage locally.
A synergy of 2 to 3 essential oils is the most beneficial way to use them and to get rid of viruses and protect our body.
One example of recipe (use in inhalation with a diffuser or in hot water):
– 3 drops EO Lemon
– 7 drops EO Bergamot FFC
– 10 drops EO Ravintsara
Inhale 10 min every 4 hours if needed.
Always be cautious when using oils for the first time.
