Cold & Flu Kit

This year the Flu is spreading like crazy! I’m pretty sure it’s made the rounds through every work place and school across the nation in record numbers. Thank goodness for inexpensive/budget friendly NATURAL remedies, am I right? I can’t tell you how many people I’ve recommended this kit to, but I love it! Not only does it have the oils I need, but they come in a convenient case. I toss it into the diaper bag, car, purse…pretty much everywhere we go for an extended period of time this kit comes, too. While some might be turned away from a kit because it has the “smaller bottles”, because you only use a few drops at a time, this kit is perfect for your winter/illness needs. Each 5ml bottle contains roughly 100 drops of oil, which will fill many capsules and several roller bottles.

Cold & Flu Kit

Oregano (origanum vulgare): Part of the Labiatae family, Oregano is considered an analgesic, antibacterial, anti fungal, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory and is often called “natures strongest antibiotic”. It is often used for viral and bacterial infections, as well as respiratory issues and muscular pain. Considered a “hot oil”, Oregano is one of the strongest oils on the market and should be used cautiously. After 10 days of straight use, take at least a 10 day break before using again. Best avoided if pregnant/nursing or on multiple medications. {Oregano pdf}

Melaleuca (melaleuca alternifolia): Also known as “Tea Tree”, Melaleuca is from the Myrtaceae family and is often used for acne, athlete’s foot, canker/cold sores, hives/rashes, and of course cold and flu. It is also great for laryngitis, bronchitis, lice,  and sinusitis. Melaleuca is considered to be antibacterial, anti-infectious, fungicide, antiviral, antiseptic, decongestant and anti-inflammatory. It is also generally considered safe to use with children 2months and older.  {Melaleuca pdf}

Shield (Protection Blend): The legend has its roots in 15th century England during the time of the great plague. Grave robbers and thieves developed their own blend of Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary to protect them while robbing the plague victims. This potent blend only contains the essential oils and no carrier oil. Dilute before applying topically.

Roller Bottle: When filling a roller bottle, add drops of essential oils to be used first, then top off with the desired carrier. For kids and most skin-types, Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO), Rosehip Seed, or Sweet Almond carriers are recommended. Dilution depends on the age and size of the person to be using the roller. Err on the side of caution and use less if you are unsure. The younger the child, the more diluted the oil should be. *Caution: Some essential oils may interact with the Roller Fitment causing an increased flow of oil or the roller ball to fall out. Avoid using with citrus and frankincense essential oils (singles or blends). Before each use, test the roller ball to make sure it is securely in place. Please exercise caution with each use and avoid using product around the eye area.
