Immune Boosters in a Bottle: 5+ Essential Oils that Work!

Photo source

In the recent years, essential oils have received a lot of importance, and possibly turned a lot of people into natural health enthusiasts. From providing pain relief to improving skin health- they worked well, and won hearts. But there’s a different side to essential oils that’s not talked about a lot- their ability to boost immunity.

Let’s dig deep and uncover the best essential oils that work towards boosting immunity and improving health.

Lavender Oil

Known for its soothing and calming effects on the body, lavender oil is one of the best essential oils for sleep apnea, insomnia and other sleep disorders, but its effectiveness in boosting immunity is highly underrated. When used in the right way, it allows the body to heal and restore, and establish a sense of overall well being.

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil is probably the most versatile essential oil out there. When used topically, it has the ability to cure headaches, and when ingested, it can cure indigestion and other common digestive system problems. This oil can be particularly helpful for individuals trying hard to stick to a healthy eating routine, since it has the potential to curb cravings, especially for sugary foods.

Lemon Oil

Lemon in general, has a detoxifying action, and the essential oil derived from it does just that! When taken in the correct dosage, lemon essential oil can help purify and cleanse the blood and stimulate the expulsion of toxic waste accumulations from the body.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil packs in powerful antibacterial and antiseptic properties which makes it an excellent natural immune system booster. Some studies have also found it to work well in fighting skin cancers, and it did turn out to be a winner by demonstrating a rapid reduction in the size of cancer tumors after its use.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary essential oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties, both of which make it a good immune booster, particularly for when seasonal cold makes rounds. Massaging the body with this oil can also stimulate lymphatic drainage, which helps detoxify the body naturally and strengthen it from within.

Thieves Oil

Thieves essential oil is often added to natural home cleaners thanks to its antibacterial action. It is basically a powerful blend of different essential oils that helps strengthen the internal organs, reduces minor aches and pains and supports healthy function of the body.

All in all, essential oils are a great way to improve health in many ways- and strengthen your immunity against various infectious diseases the natural way! So go ahead and make them a part of your daily life!
