Immune Enhancer Essential Oil Blend

Newly revised, aromatherapeutic essential oils, custom blended by a Registered Nurse who is also an experienced Professionally Certified Clinical Aromatherapist. 

Customized blend of pure essential oils known for their immunostimulant abilities. Start diffusing this one as soon as you even think you are getting a cold or infection, are going on a long trip, especially if in airplanes, or going to be around a large group of people in closed conference rooms. Can't diffuse - use a kleenex! Better yet use our personal nasal inhalers. Below you will find the essential oils used in this blend including their predominant chemical constituents and why they are believed to be particularly good for enhancing your immune system. For more indepth information about each individual oil, just follow the links provided.

Read our descriptions and safety cautions in the blue tabs below.

10 mL and 15 ml sizes available with safety dropper cap - keep out of reach of children and pets. This blend contains some of the strongest skin irritants of all oils and must be diluted properly. Diffusing this oil is the most effective method. It also contains a high percentage an anticoagulant oils - do not use if on other blood thinners.

 I reformulated this already effective blend in the summer of 2011 after reading more and more research about the immunostimulant properties of quite a few of the essential oils we already love and use in this and other blends. We will soon be adding links to some of the best articles for those who want to know the why's of this blend and the proof that the chemical constituents in this blend have been researched and shown to be very effective. The predominant chemical constituent in some of these oils have studies showing they activate white blood cell activity (basically your immune system's army), are able to inhibit airborne germs, and general immunostimulants. The perfect blend to use if you're going to be traveling, in a conference with lots of people stuck in the room for hours at a time, shopping on busy holidays, a childcare setting, a hospital hallway or nurses' station or just being exposed to potentially dangerous colds and flu's. We've detailed below the properties of each oil:

Petitgrain - contains a high percentage of Linalool and Linalyl acetate known to be immunostimulants

Dill Weed, certified organic - contains Carvone which has been studied and shown to increase white blood cell counts, and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Check back soon as we add this wonderful essential oil to our line of essential oils. 

Clary Sage - also contains about 50 to 60% Linalyl acetate and is believed to be an effective immunostimulant

Oregano - contains Carvacrol, which is a well-known to have highly effective antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, plus it is suggested that Carvacrol might have some of the strongest antioxidant properties.

Basil, ct linalool - this particular chemotype contains approximately 92% linalool, and as stated previously, is believed to be a very effective immunostimulant. If your bottle of "Basil" does not tell you the chemotype then please contact the supplier because there is a chemotype that is high in the constitutent "Methyl Eugenol" which is a potential carcinogenic component of many Basil essential oils. See here - as well as Robert Tisserand's excellent new edition of his book on "Essential Oil Safety".

Tea Tree, certified organic - this oil is one of only a few essential oils used in aromatherapy that contains a fairly large percentage of Terpinen-4-ol and though well-known for its germ fighting abilities, it is believed to be an effective immunostimulant and plays a part in activating white blood cell activity (our front-line germ fighters)

Lemon, certified organic - contains d-limonene a powerful helper for our immune systems as studies have shown that it contributes to the activity of some of the most important aspects of our bodies ability to fight off infections, including increasing the total white blood cell count, antibody production and enhancing our natural killer cell activity. 

Cinnamon leaf - contains Eugenol which has been studied and found to be a very effective germ fighting constituent

Black Pepper, certified organic - contains Caryophyllene-b, shown in studies to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties

Clove bud - also contains Eugenol and has the properties as stated above has been shown to be highly antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory

Bergamot - contains Linalool and as stated previously has been shown to be an effective immunostimulant  

SEE OUR SAFETY AND USE CAUTIONS FOR THIS BLEND

Professional blend of pure, unadulterated, undiluted essential oils including Petitgrain; Dill Weed, certified organic; Clary Sage; Oregano, certified organic; Basil, ct. linalool; Tea Tree, certified organic; Lemon, certified organic; Cinnamon leaf; Black Pepper, certified organic; Clove Bud; Palmarosa; Bergamot.

Immune Enhancer blend - newly reformulated to be even more effective. This blend contains clove and cinnamon, both of which are high in the chemical constitutent Eugenol which is an anticoagulant. That means they thin the blood, so should not be used with anyone who is presently on other blood thinners, either pharmaceuticals such as Coumadin or Plavix, over-the-counter, or supplement such as Nattokinase. Also do not use prior to or immediately following surgery. Keep all essential oil bottles tightly closed when not in use, leave dropper cap in place, and keep out of reach of children or pets. DO NOT USE THIS BLEND UNDILUTED. INTENDED FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY. This warning has absolutely nothing to do with the purity of the oil and is only to be used internally if under the expertise and guidance of a healthcare and/or professional aromatherapy clinician.

This blend can be used as simply as placing a couple drops onto a tissue and sniffing the aroma-therapy. They are very effective when used in our ultrasonic diffuser that is adequately described here. This blend also contains some oils known to be skin irritants; however, this blend when diluted can safely and effectively be used as a chest rub, back rub or foot rub. I don't recommend this blend as a full massage blend. As little as 2 drops in one ounce of carrier vegetable oil is sufficient.  We also find it very effective to use this, or any of our blends or oils, in our personal nasal inhaler soon to be added to the website. These are very convenient as they are the size of a lip balm and can be carried easily in your pocket or purse.

See our Essential Oil Database (currently under construction) and our Disclaimer page for more information.

 

Ann- Our 2 boys (16 mos and 3) have been suffering from allergies this whole last 2 months. They seem to get better here and there when the temp drops then right back to runny noses and coughing.

The baby was very mucus filled yesterday when I got the breathe easy and immune enhancer. The 3 year old has been coughing for about 2weeks straight. We haven't had any fevers.

Last night I made a chest rub with the breathe easy and diffused the immune enhancer in their rooms overnight.

Not exagerrating....the 3 year old woke up and tried to cough(there wasn't any thing there) and the baby was snot free! Daycare provider was astonished!(to be honest, so was I!) This latest batch was PERFECT! Thanks again! Mandi, Lincoln, NE (posted 12-13-11)
