Every cold season starts the same way…you hope you won’t get sick, but odds are you will. With our busy schedules, whether it’s school, work, family or all of the above…something always gets the better of us, and we almost never priorities ourselves or our health. We sometimes work through sniffles, which become colds, which can sometimes turn into flues…we ignore the symptoms hoping they’ll go away. This behaviour only makes us weaker, and then we are stuck in bed fighting off what we could have prevented to begin with!
Besides eating well, adding the usual veggie and fruit recommendations to our diets , washing our hands frequently, and taking our all-natural vitamin or nutritional supplement (without fillers nor additives, read this blog post about the ingredients you should not have in your supplements).. you can also take the following steps to help you immunize against winter ailments!

1. Immune building, virus fighting essential oils
If you follow this blog regularly you already know how I feel about essential oils. As an avid researcher of alternative options for my family’s health, I fell in love with essential oils a couple of years ago and have continued to study their infinite benefits and virtues regularly to ensure I make the right choices for my health goals. If you want to know which essential oils you can start with and which I recommend you keep in your home, you can read this blog post I posted a few weeks ago.
However, if you do not want to bother with preparing your own blends but still want to reap all of the benefits these nature-derived treasures have to offer, I can definitely recommend 2 blends you cannot do without this winter.
The first blend you need is the Immunity Guard Blend
I absolutely love this blend, a staple in my family during winter. It contains 6 different premium essential oils all packed with virus fighting powers to help protect your immune system.
This effective blend contains the following pure oils:
Rosemary (rosmarinus officinalis)
Lemon (citrus limon)
Eucalyptus (eucalyptus globulus)
Sweet Orange (citrus sinensis)
The scent is sweet and herbaceous, slightly medicinal and at the same time comforting.
How can this essential oil blend help ?
Each of the pure essential oils in this Immunity Guard Blend have been reputed with a variety of benefits for both the body and mind. By bringing these essential oils together in this very special natural germ-fighting fusion allows the synergy between them to become a vessel against viruses and seasonal ailments.

What else can you do?
A second essential oil blend I recommend is the SinusAid Blend.
Its fresh, minty and sweet aroma instantly puts a bounce in my step, and even if that is not the main intention…it certainly helps!
This lovely sinus support blend includes the following pure oils:
Cajeput (melaleuca leucadendron)
Vetiver (vetiveria zizanoides)
How can this essential oil blend help?
As with the Immunity Guard Blend, each of the pure essential oils in this Sinus Aid Blend have been reputed with a variety of benefits for both the body and mind. By bringing these essential oils together in this unique fresh fusion Ingenium Naturals has provided a means to help fight seasonal ailments due to allergies and cold symptoms. The essential oils contained in the SinusAid Blend have also been known to encourage proper nasal function, as well as help alleviate minor aches and pains associated with daily life.

How can these 2 blends be used?
These blends can be diluted in a glass roller-ball container with a neutral carrier oil such as jojoba oil. They can also be diluted in any glass container and then simply massaged daily on the palms of your hands and feet. I usually apply the blends to my wrists and around my neckline. It is safe on children as well when properly diluted. A typical method of use is adding the blends to a diffuser, or inhaling directly from the bottle.The SinusAid blend is particularly useful in the presence of a stuffy nose, or as the sniffles present themselves. Both these belnds will leave a pleasant and comforting scent when diffused in a room.

2. A solution for achy muscles….
This second solution is quite unique as its presentation is different from most massage oils or creams, the Thermal Body Butter Chapstick.
The luxury all-natural oils and butters contained in this product are highly hydrating, and aromatherapeutic. The pure essential oils it contains include Eucalyptus and Peppermint, as well as camphor, which is found in the wood of the camphor laurel plant.
Gently massaging this body butter under the feet and onto chest will allow the blood to circulate and help the absorption of the ingredients. It will also help alleviate symptoms of a cold or flu thanks to the combined synergy of the eucalyptus, peppermint and camphor. As a matter of fact, the thermal effect can be accentuated through a deep tissue or regular massage. This gentle friction allows the essential oils to penetrate into the skin, the muscle, and help temporarily relieve the achy feeling we get when we are ill. It is actually quite gentle and can also be rubbed under children’s feet, benefiting from both the ever-important touch therapy, and aromatherapy.
