Essential Oils to Boost Immunity Through Winter

When I started using essential oils to benefit my health, I had no idea how well they would work! As a grandmother of two wonderful boys, essential oils help me stay off prescription drugs and work in natural ways to keep me around longer to enjoy my family.  I use peppermint 100% pure essential oil on my feet for plantar fasciitis. I diffuse lavender for a calming atmosphere and my dachshund, Banyon, loves it! I also diffuse my own DisaLino Thieves Protection Blend, to protect my family and pets for winter wellness. I am a true advocate for 100% pure essential oils.

Essential Oils & The Immune System

As I learn more about the remarkable healing properties of 100% pure essential oils by using and reading about them daily, I began to realize how powerful and beneficial they really are. Essential oils are great for you physically, and can even help with your mental and emotional well-being.

The cold weather is officially here, with its viruses and sickness. Below are my top 100% pure essential oils to aid in keeping the doctor away through the winter months and all year long.

1. Disinfect + Boost Your Mood

Lemon essential oil has mood-boosting, astringent and antibacterial properties. Enjoy the incredible detoxifying effects of lemon essential oil by diffusing the aroma throughout your home. Lemon is a clean, fresh scent that can be used all year long! You can use this oil to help prevent and fight illness. The scent of lemons may boost your mood and alleviate your stress, as well.

2. Immunity Diffuser Blend

We have a special immunity essential oil blend recipe in the DisaLino Private Collection that we made especially for the winter months. Our Thieves Protection Blend has a holiday aroma, containing lemon, peppermint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, rosemary and clove. It is an absolute staple in my home and office--it smells like Christmas in a bottle! Diffuse this beautiful essential oil for its holiday scent as well as it’s health benefits. With all the different ingredients, it’s a real immune system booster, making it a must-have for the cold and flu season!

3. Ease Headaches and Pains

Peppermint is one of the most versatile 100% pure essential oils you can use for your health. It can be used topically to help with headaches, indigestion and even to increase mental alertness. I use it for my aching feet and I diffuse it for a mood lifter.

4. Protect Immunity + Boost Overall Well-Being

Frankincense is the Holy Grail of essential oils. It has so many benefits, including immune-boosting and purifying properties, which can help to prevent you from getting sick during the winter season.

Use Frankincense in your diffuser regularly to get through the winter season without getting sick! Wash your hands regularly and you will get the best support and protection for your immune system. 

Winter has many suffering from SAD and feeling a little blue, which Frankincense can help with. It can help improve mood and alleviate anxiety, which is an extra bonus for when the sun starts to go down sooner.  You can diffuse it to help with sleep, too!

5. Rest Up & Create Calm

Lavender is a scent that has a significant calming effect on the body and mind. It's great to diffuse during bedtime or to calm pets down anytime. It can help support better sleep, which allows your body to heal and restore. Diffusing the oil in your bedroom or putting some on your feet will help support you with an overall sense of well-being.
