When you get an infection, your doctor will prescribe you an antibiotic to get rid of the infection. Your body is still affected by the sickness and it lingers deep down inside of you. Essential oils have been used in many cultures since the beginning of time. There is an oil that can be used for specific illnesses like dandruff, cold sores, detoxification, and so on. Be careful, not all oils are 100% pure, but I found a great brand called doTERRA that I would highly recommend.
What is an essential oil?
It’s extracted from the plant and made into different types of oils. You can rub the oil on your skin, smell it for a few seconds, put it in a capsule to swallow, or use a diffuser to get the aroma scent circulating in your room.
How do they work?
They help purify the air and help trigger the root cause of any illness. You can also apply them on your skin if you have eczema or another skin related issue.
My personal favs
- Peppermint – helps with breathing and clears out your lungs
- Lavender – helps you to relax and have a sense of calmness
