powerful immune system boosters

Instead of relying on the toxic chemicals found in immunization vaccines to ‘protect’ your body, why not use what God created as an exact match for us. Essential oils provide powerful Immune System boosters and they’re are so easy to use, as well as many of them having such a beautiful perfume.

I want to mention here, right at the start, that although all oils are safe to use externally, usually once they have been mixed with a carrier oil, such as Coconut oil or jojoba oil, as two examples. It’s most important that you do not consume them unless they are 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils such as what doTERRA provides.

Not all essential oils are the same. You may know of some, but I highly recommend doTERRA as a trusted brand source.

How to Boost your Immune System using essential oils

Today we will look at those oils that are known specifically as powerful Immune System boosters.

  • Cassia
  • Cinnamon Bark
  • Copaiba
  • Green Mandarin
  • Lemon
  • Oregano
  • Peppermint
  • Vetiver

Any of these are good to use on their own for the purpose. But better still, you can blend them with some of the others on the list to achieve a greater variety of benefits.

All will help to stimulate your immune system and aid in protecting you from any pathogens that may be around. It’s important to realise that they should be just a part of your overall diet. A healthy diet is foremost, supplementing it with essential oils and vitamins and minerals where appropriate.
