Keeping the Virus at Bay with Antiviral Essential Oils

Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, I blended an Anti-Flu essential oil blend with my favourite antiviral essential oils: Tea Tree, Sweet Orange, Spike Lavender, Eucalyptus, Thyme c/t linalool, Oregano and German Chamomile. These essential oils provide natural immune and respiratory system support and can also help relieve any symptoms of flu. This comes in a blend for diffusing and also in a roll-on for use when you are on-the-go.

As we know, the symptoms for patients with COVID-19 include mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Some are asymptomatic, which escalates the level of global anxiety since it first appeared in Wuhan, China. Currently there is no vaccine available to protect against the coronavirus and infected patients receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms.

While we wait for the vaccine to be developed, what we can do is also to boost our immunity system. Adults can easily use the Anti-Flu roll-on. You can also use Anti-Flu blend in a personal aroma inhaler stick – drop up to 15 drops of the blend into the cotton wick in the aroma stick. Another way is to (carefully) drip 1 drop of the blend on the outside of your mask.

To make your own natural hand sanitiser, dilute the blend in 1-2% sanitiser base.

For children below 3 years old, you can use a blend of Sweet OrangeScotch PineLavender and Tea Tree essential oils.

Of course, we have to stay safe, practice good personal hygiene, get plenty of exercise and drink lots of water while using aromatherapy to keep the virus at bay. Be socially responsible, do wear a mask and consult a doctor if you are unwell.
