Warm Up Those Winter Chills

Warm Up Those Winter ChillsPicJan2013.doc
Coming in from a play day out in the cold is easy.  Keeping germs at bay is much harder.

Protect yourself and loved ones through cold and flu season by using anti-viral and antibacterial essential oils.  They help strengthen and support the immune system helping to fight illness and infections.

Here’s a few essential oils to have on hand that can be used alone, or in blends below:

Eucalyptus globulus, Spruce, Fir, Ravensara, Geranium, Ravintsara,  Juniperberry, Cypress, Lemon, Lavender-Spike, Melissa, Rosewood, Black Pepper, Tea Tree, Bay Laurel, and Helichrysum.


Mix essential oils below and add to a dark glass bottle.  This synergy is good to make up during the winter season as it is beneficial for the whole family.

●  15 drops Ravensara    10 drops Cypress    10 drops Juniperberry 
  10 drops Lemon    10 drops Spruce-Black  4 drops Tea Tree (optional).

Add 10-15 drops to a diffuser, a pocket inhaler, or try 6-8 drops added to a tablespoon of carrier oil such as jojoba for a warm bath.  One of my favorite ways is to add 10 drops of the synergy to 1 oz. of unscented lotion.  Rub this over the throat and chest area 3-5 times a day.  The feet are also a quick absorption site and beneficial for using this lotion.

Stay well~

’til next time,





About Aromatherapy Contessa

I love creating aromatic blends with essential oils whether for my Arlys Naturals product lines, for fun, or for customer special orders. I'm just drawn into the veil of mystery that nature has provided through these living plants, not just in their aromatic properties, but also their natural healing properties.
