Boost Your Immune System With Essential Oils
by Candace Newman, MAT, LMT 



True Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of therapeutic grade essential oils. It is an ancient art and science that has been around since human beings started interacting with plants. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids extracted from various parts of plants and trees. Their natural medicinal chemistry makes them among the origins of medicine, and their powerful and pure aroma makes them the origins of pure perfume. To receive the wonderful health benefits from essential oils, one must use pure high-grade essential oils.

We all know there is a buffet table of wonderful tools to assist us in leading healthy lives. Making some of them part of our daily routine is known as preventative medicine. Since we are gifted with the ability to respond and make choices, we must choose the combinations of healthy tools to put on our plate. Deciding and taking action is creating our future. Which ones are the right ones for us at this time in our lives? This changes as we change. Life is about change. One choice on the buffet table is true Aromatherapy and pure essential oils. There are well over 400 kinds of essential oils: different ones for different times.

Essential oils can be naturally antibacterial and antiviral due to their chemical constituents. Some are stronger than others for boosting the immune system. It is paramount that high-grade pure essential oils are used when looking for these medicinal benefits. It is also the way to avoid allergic reactions to "fragrances" and synthetic smells. Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Lavender are at the top of the list for essential oils protecting us from cold, flu, sinus, headache, and stomach ache problems. Use them daily on a cotton ball as a personal diffuser, in a room diffuser, in the bath or after a shower, and in a morning and nighttime regime that is right for you. It is simple, self-empowering, relatively inexpensive compared to allopathic medicine, and void of possible side effects when used correctly. The inherent qualities of essential oils actually create positive side effects, such as feelings of comfort, peace, and relaxation. This is good news. You decide which ones are good for you, which methods suit your lifestyle, and how much to use.

First choose the oils, and then choose the methods that work for you. It is as easy as that, and YOU are in control. The aromas teach us about ourselves as they bring up memories, thoughts, and emotions. We cannot separate our thoughts and emotions from who we are as an individual. So essential oils demand we honor the individuality in each of us. What a reverent thought. Choose oils that make you "feel good" when you smell them. Your immune system will benefit more, if the aroma is also pleasing to you.

This is how the Good Medicine Tin® of five essential oils started for me in 1992: to improve my immune system and get me feeling better. I carried the components around in a plastic baggie to keep me healthy while traveling and at conferences. Our health is continually compromised in these lives we live. Discernment is essential. Choose to bring the joy of essential oils into life. Your heart knows all about this, and is waiting for you to come home.

What Can I do?

* Gather up any of the four listed oils and start whiffing and rubbing in the name of good health. These steps are also excellent for traveling.

* Put 1-2 drops of the oil you choose on a cotton ball. Keep this in a pocket close to your lungs, in a pillow, drawer, or purse/briefcase. Tuck a Lavender one in your pillow at night for a good night's sleep!

* Carry around a little bottle of pure essential oil for strong inhalation when needed. Close your eyes and take 5-7 deep breaths.

* Use a room diffuser in your home, hotel, or office to clear the air.

* Make a Palm Blend with Jojoba or another good base/carrier oil and add 1-2 drops of the oil you need, such as Eucalyptus for respiratory. Apply this first to your nose. Then go to the appropriate place, such as head, neck, chest, or belly. Do this in a bath or after a shower to protect you for the day or night.

* Steam tents: This is also helpful with sinus pain and headaches. Choose Eucalyptus, Peppermint, or Tea Tree. Take 3 to 5 deep breaths from each bottle and notice how you feel. Use one or two oils that give you relief and soothe you. Pour boiling water into a Pyrex bowl.  Place this on a table that supports your elbows when sitting on a chair. Add 2-4 drops total of any combination of the oils listed. Wait a couple of seconds for the powerful "fumes" to evaporate. Drape a big beach towel around your shoulders, head, and the steaming bowl. With your eyes closed, massage your face and head. Find out where your tender "spots" are, and work with them. You may add 1-2 drops of oil every 5 to 10 minutes if needed. Stay here for 20 minutes if appropriate.

Take care of your precious self with these natural liquids from nature.  If you take care of yourself first, then you can still be around to take care of those you love. Be gentle with yourself. Listen to your heart. Life is precious.
