“Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.” -Pietro Aretino
Colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours force us indoors during the winter months. Our bodies do not necessarily receive the necessary amounts of Vitamin D and fresh air they so desperately need which puts our immune systems at risk. If you’ve been in a grocery store lately or any public space, you know what I am talking about. From the common cold to the flu, the symptoms are rampant right now.
For years I have focused on treatments to minimize the symptoms of contracting a virus but this time I began focusing on preventative measures. I am tired of acting retroactively. I decided to focus on the proactive and have developed an oil blend to do just that!
Essential oils have incredible healing properties that can help boost the immune system. These oils carry nutrients, oxygen and energy to the plants just like blood does in our bodies. I formulated a blend that includes Clove, Rosemary, Lemon, Cinnamon and Eucalyptus because these 5 are a few of the most powerful antibacterial and antiviral essential oils for the immune system. Lemon brings a strong cleansing effect and will relieve coughs while improving circulation and stimulating white blood cells. Eucalyptus reduces mucus, is an antiviral, a decongestant and supports our entire upper respiratory system. Cinnamon is one of the most powerful antibacterial/antiviral of the essential oils and can even keep a virus from spreading when used in a diffuser.
With this knowledge, I began to experiment with tinctures. After product testing, we are ready to launch our very own roller bottle IMMUNITY. This blend contains the oils mentioned above blended with our Peppermint Hydrosol. We have designed it to be rubbed on the bottoms of the feet at the first sign of any cold/flu symptom. Additionally, it can be rolled onto the hands to be inhaled throughout the day.
A proactive approach to one’s health and wellbeing is the precursor to not just surviving these winter months but thriving in these winter months. The Winter Solstice is time to dive within, set intentions, and take stock in our dreams. A weakened, threatened, or contaminated immune system makes this difficult to do. Therefore, IMMUNITY was created to help you THRIVE.
This is a strong formulation not recommended for children under the age of 6.
May you be Well, May you discover your Essence,
