Essential Oils For Immune Support

A healthy immune system is vital to protecting us from threats that bombard us on a daily basis. For those with herpes, it is important to strengthen our immune system so that we are better equipped to fend off or heal from outbreaks.

Essential oils and Your Immune System

Many people are turning to essential oils to naturally boost the immune system, and with good reason. Scientific studies and anecdotal evidence demonstrate that diffusion of essential oils, applying to vita flex points, or taking internally (when applicable) all provide added protection by their natural purifying and cleansing properties.

From Dr. Kelly-

I have been working with essential oils since 2004. For many years I was using a company that had a lot of good blends that I had great results with. And then about 5 years ago I got introduced to a company called doTERRA. They have what I believe some of the most magical, profound, strong potent essential oils on the market.

You can buy essential oils everywhere nowadays, but I will tell you that there is a BIG difference. There’s a difference in the quality and the therapeutic benefits. The cheap oils are great to smell, but if you really want therapeutic grade, you’re going to need to go with a company that really works with the essential oils in a certain way that pulls out the medicinal properties and doesn’t dilute it with a bunch of junk.

From all the ones I have tried, my favorite company is doTERRA. I have seen miracles happen with their products and when it comes to herpes management, what I love about doTERRA is you can use it topically. You can also take it internally, which is not the case for most other essential oil brands.

Lavender is my favorite essential oil and has so many properties and uses. Lavender is an antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. It’s also very soothing to smell when put on the body.

If you’re having a herpes outbreak, you can dilute lavender with a couple of drops of coconut oil, and then you can apply that topically.

It’s very soothing, it speeds up the healing, it kills the virus, and it’s going to put you in a more calm state. So my one favorite essential oil for women with herpes is definitely lavender and doTERRA, in my opinion, makes the best.

Some other formulas that I have created over the years would be using lavender and tea tree oil together, 1-2 drops each, and dilute with a carrier oil, like cocounut oil, to apply topically.

Essential oils have really fantastic emotional benefits as well. When we have outbreaks, we can get really emotional, experiencing a lot of sadness, frustration, anger, or resentment.

doTerra already has the perfect essential oil blends put together to help with all sorts of emotional states. For example, one of my favorite blends is called Balance, which is very grounding if you are feeling a little all over the place. I like to put Balance on the bottoms of my feet or on my hands to inhale.

They also have ones that help promote joy, clarity, focus, forgiveness, hope, bravery, calm, cheer, and alignment. Such an amazing, natural way to get back into a healing or focused state for the mind and body!

Disclaimer: I do have an association with doTERRA, so I may receive portions from purchases made through my member link. But to really be authentic, I truly believe that this is one of the best essential oil companies on the market and I personally use them all the time. I’ve seen them work so much better than so many other formulas out there- they’re organic, they’re clean, and they’re very mindful.
