Winter isn’t over yet. This time of year, a lot of pesky bugs are going around. To avoid catching every illness that you come into contact with, it’s important to take care of yourself and your immune system.
The immune system fights disease and works to keep your body healthy. It can recognize and therefore protect the body from bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms and antigens. But in order for it to do its job, the lymphatic system and all the major organs need to be kept in good condition. Eating healthy whole foods, drinking plenty of water, and getting enough sleep will help your organs function properly and strengthen the immune system.
There are several essential oils that can aid the immune system as well. They can be diffused, as well as diluted and massaged into the bottoms of the feet, along the spine, or under the arms. They are also helpful when added to a warm and relaxing bath.
Here are some of the best essential oils for boosting the immune system:
- tea tree
- white lotus
For further information on which essential oils to use and how essential oils can help boost your immune system, see the Reference Guide For Essential Oils.
