Cold and Flu Blend Essential Oil

$12.00

Cold and Flu Blend essential oil

Formulated and researched by an experienced certified aromatherapist. Pure, undiluted aromatherapeutic blend of highly effective essential oils

A natural and effective way to fend off as well as soothe the symptoms of the cold and flu.

If you even just google the essential oils we use in this blend, you will find a wealth of information attesting to the health-benefiting properties in these essential oils. We do use aromatherapy grade essential oils - although that term and any other term to describe "grades" in essential oils is not backed by any organizations or certifying agencies. Why do we in the industry feel we have to use some sort of term to tell you our oils are of a better "grade" than those distilled for the food and flavor industry? Because there are large companies who have entered the market place in large numbers telling you that their "therapeutic" grade essential oils are somehow better than everyone elses - although the truth has been known and shown that they buy their oils from most of the same suppliers that other clinical aromatherapists do - although they charge many times more for these oils in order to pay for their uplines and downlines. 

Regardless, this blend is a household word in my family and has been used and shown effective for at least 10 years. We just say things like - well, did you "use the cold and flu"? Or "should I use the cold and flu"? We also recommend high doses of Vitamin C, Yogi's Classic India Spiced Tea with raw honey. These blends have worked and do work and we have years of testimonials and experiences to attest to that fact. We do NOT recommend this blend if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. You will find that our Cold and Flu Baby Blend is very effective and safe for children and pregnant and/or lactating women. 

10 mL and 15 ml sizes available - safety dropper caps always.

 

A powerful and proven blend of 100% undiluted and unadulterated aromatherapeutic essential oils proven to be effective in fighting colds and flu viruses. The blend is broad spectrum, meaning it has different essential oils to give you an effective synergy of bacteria fighting and viral fighting properties. Especially useful when used in our ultrasonic diffuser. Click here to see the ultrasonic diffuser

100% pure essential oils, not diluted or adulterated in any way. We carefully source our essential oils and have working relationships with our suppliers. Many oils on the market are adulterated in the USA. We have decided the best way is to only buy from those suppliers who will provide us with COA's (Certificates of Analysis) and GC/MS documentation. Read our additional information on our essential oil database about these methods of determining the chemical constituents of oils and their purity.

This is a customized blend that includes the essential oils of Cinnamon leaf and bark, Clove bud, Certified organic Lemon, Lemongrass, Certified organic Eucalyptus globulus and polybractea, Thyme, Oregano, Certified organic Tea Tree, Wild-crafted Ravensara and Certified Organic Peppermint.

Please note: Cinnamon and Clove essential oils are both anticoagulants and should not be used by anyone routinely taking medications to thin the blood, such as Coumarin, Plavix or Aspirin. We offer another Cold & Flu Blend #2 for customers such as this.

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR BREAST FEEDING. This is also not for young children. Please see our Cold and Flu Baby Blend. This blend is most effective when diffused using our ultrasonic diffuser which offers different settings for different rooms of the house and situations. Check out our Why Aromatherapy Page and an article on how to use essential oils. You can make a chest, back and foot rub using approximately 4 drops of the blend in 1 oz of vegetable oil and cover the chest, back and feet with clothing to enhance absorption. This blend is full of what we call skin irritants, so if you do use topically please dilute and do not use in or near any sensitive mucous membranes. Sometimes a chest rub is just very effective, especially at night while you sleep - again, test it first to see if you have a skin reaction. Robert Tisserand's latest edition of "Essential Oil Safety" recommends maximum dermal percentages and we have formulated this blend so that it SHOULD BE safe when diluted, but everyone is different - so again please test in a small area first.

 We’ve been known to carry a kleenex on which we’ve placed a few drops of the blend and simply carry it with us and inhale it frequently throughout the day. Personal nasal inhalers are awesome for this blend. You can also add it to your bath water, but be sure to put it in either some honey, bath salts, epsom salts or oil before adding to the bath water – otherwise the oil will sit in a pool on top of the water. Test this one carefully because it is full of well-known skin irritants. My daughter who has eczema has been able to and has used this blend on many occasions down through the years, but each and every one of us is different - very different. So test first. This blend is sensitive to the skin and if you touch your nose with the kleenex it will be numb for a minute or two, but if you hold the tissue away from your nose and inhale, it works very well as you can immediately feel the relief it brings to your sinuses and lungs. We also make a blend called Cold & Flu Blend #2 – that is for people who are on blood thinners of any kind, such as aspirin. This blend contains clove essential oil and cinnamon essential oil, both of which have blood thinning properties. If you are on blood thinners – use #2.

 My 2 1/2 year old son got a really bad cold....watery eyes, sneezing, terrible runny nose, headache(you could see it in his eyes) swollen sinuses, and fever of 102. We started using the cold and flu blend within the first 24-36 hours of symptoms. He broke his fever within the following 24 hours, and symptoms steadily declined for the next 2 days. Faster than any prescription we have used, and saved us the trip to the dr, co-pay, and prescription costs! Thank you WINGSETS!!!   Mandi, Lincoln, NE.
