I formulated this blend because as a nurse I've noticed that there are a vast majority of people on some sort of blood thinner - be it aspirin, plavix, coumadin and others. Their are quite a few essential oils that are also known to be anti-coagulants and I'd like to give those on blood thinners a safer alternative for an essential oil blend that has beneficial properties to fight seasonal colds and flu type issues. This is nonetheless still a powerful mix of health-enhancing properties just with fewer blood thinning essential oils.

Pure unadultered, undiluted professionally formulated blend of essential oils including Cinnamon leaf (Cinnamonum vera), Certified organic lemon (Citrus limonum), Certified organic Eucalyptus globulus, Lemongrass, wildcrafted (Cymbopogon citratus), Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), and Oregano (Origanum vulgare)..

Cold and Flu #2 Blend

Is for those who are on blood thinners or prior to or after surgery. We have formulated this blend for those who may be on blood thinners or are getting ready for or have recently had surgery. Although this blend contains cinnamon leaf, which contains a large percentage of the chemical constituent Eugenol and is a potent blood thinner, we have reduced the percentage of cinnamon leaf and have completely left off clove bud and clove leaf, both of which also contain a high percentage of Eugenol. We believe this makes this blend a much better choice for anyone on blood thinners such as aspirin, Nattokinase, Coumadin, or Plavix. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.

Asthma sufferers - please take note. Although the research shows that Eucalyptus globulus is an effective essential oil for you, please note that when using this blend, the single oil or any blend containing Eucalytpus, be mindful that you do not directly inhale the oil as it may elicit a cough reflex which could trigger an asthma attack. We have also formulated our Breathe Easy blend which is also very effective for inflammation and lung discomfort experienced by asthma sufferers, but not as effective in fighting cold and flu bacteria and viruses.

As with any essential oil or new product, we ask that you do a patch test on the inner aspect of your elbow by putting a drop of oil that has been diluted in your choice of vegetable oil onto your skin, cover it with a bandaid and wait 24 hrs to see if you have any redness, itching or inflammatory reaction. The oils in this blend are inherently skin irritants, so they must be properly diluted prior to use. Our recommendation is 1 to 2 drops from the dropper cap bottle to 1 oz or 3 tsp of vegetable oil. The UNDILUTED essential oil (do not add carrier oils to diffusers) may be added directly to your ultrasonic diffuser and we recommend 5 to 10 drops per usage. Our diffusers will use about 8 oz of water and will run up to 8 hours depending on your settings.

This blend and our regular Cold and Flu blends are very beneficial for cold and flu symptoms. We like to use them as chest rubs, back rubs and foot rubs. Did you know that your feet (see our blog about this here) are one of the best places to put your essential oil mixture for the best absorption? It's true. Cover your chest, back and/or feet after applying for enhanced absorption and reduced evaporation of the oils. You can use any vegetable oil you choose. Please do not use occluding oils such as animal-based oils, lanolin, vasoline, or mineral oil. These will not allow for good absorption of the essential oils. We also highly recommend that topical application be augmented with the use of the ultrasonic diffuser.
