How To Use Essential Oils For A Cold or Sore Throat

Would you like to know how to use essential oils for a cold or sore throat? There a so many essential oils to choose from and I’ll share what I use almost daily

One of the essential oil blends I use the most to support the body against colds and sore throats is this one:  Immune Strength.   Then we either roll it on the bottoms of our feet, on our wrists or on our neck.  And it smells good!

What Essential Oils Should I Keep On Hand (and travel with)?

I have a roller of Immune Strength in my purse, in my car and in my kitchen.  This way I don’t have to always be hunting down my one an only bottle.  When my husband travels for work, I pack on for him to take.  We faithfully use this before we go to hang out with other kids or go to public places (grocery store, birthday parties, church, play groups, etc). I want to be able to provide social activities for my kids and this is how I fight against germs and use essential oils for a cold and sore throat. (yes, it helps even if you already have a sore throat).

Because essential oils smell great, you can use them around the house. Another great idea is to add Immune Strength to your liquid or foaming hand soap. Some people really like to use it to clean there house.

A lot of people have heard of Thieves cleaner.  Since Immune Strength is a very similar formula, you can use in place of Thieves.  So, should you use Thieves vs Immune Strength?  Either option is great!

Thieves cost $45.72 and Immune strength costs $26.95.
Do note that Immune Strength has a 90 day return policy and ships for FREE!
(And a 15ml bottle will last you a long time if you use it in a roller.)
