I’ve been using North American Herb & Spice’s, Oil of Oregano, for years when I feel any signs coming on that resemble a cold… sniffles, scratchy or sore throat, fever, cough… two drops under the tongue AM and PM for a couple days should do the trick…  

Remember — when you are starting to feel better, keep taking the Oil of Oregano for a few more days – it’s just like the instructions that come with taking a prescription drug — even though you feel better this Natural Antibiotic is still an Antibiotic — keep taking it like you would finish your prescription.

Essential Oils for Cold & Flu Season

Essential oils are quite powerful substances.  They are easily and quickly absorbed by our bodies, making them fast-acting.  That’s exactly what we want during cold and flu season!  Here is some information about some of my favorite cold-fighting essential oils.

One step is to purify the air around you.  Use a diffuser when possible.  Carry necklaces with charms that you can add a couple of drops of essential oils to, or simply rubbing some into your skin will help warn off those bad bugs!

Essential oils are naturally anti-microbial, so using them as a hand sanitizer is an awesome idea.  Try mixing some into a spritzer bottle with water or fractionated coconut oil and simply spritzing your hands.

If you do manage to catch something, try using essential oils in your diffuser or a steam mist (pour boiling water into a bowl, add a couple of drops of essential oil, and inhale).  Peppermint and eucalyptus are excellent for steam inhalation.  Try a combination of pine, clove, thyme, lemon and frankincense for a diffuser – it works great!

Another fabulous treatment for colds and flu is a chest rub.  Give this simple recipe a try:

4 drops thyme
4 drops marjoram
3 drops eucalyptus
2 drops tea tree
2 drops oregano
1 t aloe vera gel
1/8 t massage oil.
Combine and rub into chest before bed.


Here’s a good referral list for choosing essential oils:
