Oil Blends of the Month: October

Happy October! We all admire and enjoy the leaves changing colors, the brisk air with the sun radiating into our skin, and, of course, the sweetest and scariest holiday- Halloween. However, fall is also notorious for the beginning of the cold and flu season, even if we have been experiencing a year of 'sick season'. Many essential oils can help build up your immune system, clear out your sinuses, and have anti-viral properties, so try a couple of the below Essential Oil Blends and stay healthy!

Blends of essential oils during the cold season can be beneficial while being diffused to keep your immune system healthy. The primary few we’d recommend focusing on for October are tea tree, eucalyptus, lemon, and rosemary. 

Tea tree, peppermint, and eucalyptus are excellent decongestants when inhaled. These are oils that work best when diffused rather than applied to your skin if you are experiencing cold-like symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or a gnarly cough. However, tea tree is also great for purifying your skin; we typically recommend diluting your essential oils before applying to your skin. A great way to do that is to put a couple of drops in our unscented lotion or creme and apply to your face or wherever there are impurities you’d like to eliminate.

Rosemary promotes energy and an uplifting environment, which is a needed kick to jump-start your days when you’re under the weather. Rosemary’s warm aroma clears sinuses and “foggy head.” Rosemary is also great on your skin because of its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. Also try adding a couple of drops in your shampoo- rosemary promotes healthy hair and can help it grow!

Blends you could do for this sickly season are:

  • Clear Nose
    • Three drops Eucalyptus
    • Three drops Tea Tree
    • Two drops Peppermint
  • Feeling Good
    • Two drops Eucalyptus
    • Two drops Tea Tree
    • One drop Lavender

    • Five drops Lemon
  • Knock-Off Vicks
    • Five drops Eucalyptus 
    • Five drops Tea Tree
    • Two drops Rosemary
    • One drop Peppermint

Pro Tip: Similar to building an immunity to medication when taking too often, we do build resistance to the powerful benefits of essential oils. We’d recommend doing four days on an essential oil, then switching to a different one or creating a [different] blend of essential oils for four days and keep rotating. 

Caution: Certain essential oils can do more harm than good to children due to their bodies still developing. For example, peppermint is not recommended for children under the age of 8 because their lungs are still developing. Please be careful if you have pets before diffusing essential oils because many are toxic to them. Cats have a very low tolerance and can get very sick due to essential oils. However, dogs can tolerate certain essential oils.
