So I’m here today working on an essential oil blend for COVID, whether as a protection or for beating up that nasty virus.
While researching, I found some people are interested in finding such blend. I always love to recommend blends I come up with only when I‘m done testing. In this case today I’m glad to find some folks Who are happy to try.
So the list of oils is:
Oregano: antiviral, a super strong essential oil that fights infections. It also has natural antibiotic nature
Thyme: antiviral, fights against infections and a great one for boosting the immunity
Eucalyptus: the main EO for cold symptoms, asthma, and infections in general
Black Pepper: for pain and cold symptom
Peppermint: helps open the airways and boost energy. It also helps regulate the body temperature
Methods of using this blend:
In a diffuser: 2 drops eucalyptus 2 drops peppermint 1 drop oregano 1 drop Black pepper 1 drop thyme
Topically: in a 10ml rolling bottle or dropper, start with 1 drop of each and then fill it up with a carrier oil of your choice. (Examples: coconut fractionated oil, grape seed oil). apply behind the ears and on the back of the neck twice a day
You may also inhale right from the bottle.
Give this a try and contact me with any question or to share your results.
Notes: please do not use this if you:

Essential oil disclaimer: This recipe uses what are generally considered safe essential oils, but please keep in mind that while completely natural, all essential oils are powerful plant compounds that you and your family (including your pets) might have a reaction to. Never use essential oils undiluted or take essential oils internally (diluted or undiluted) without the guidance of a professional, and always read up about the possible side effects of each type of oil before you use it. Avoid the use of essential oils (diluted or undiluted) during the first trimester of pregnancy, on small babies, and on anyone with severe allergies to the plants the oils are derived from. And if you see any reactions in yourself, your family, or your pets, stop use of your essential oil products immediately and contact a medical professional.
When using essential oils, be careful and read the instructions on the label. Misusing essential oils could be harmful.
The topical application of essential oils may prove to be extra beneficial because the transdermal properties of the oil permeate your skin and enter your bloodstream faster. Your olfactory nerve receptors also sense the smell and send signals to your brain.
However, before topical application, you should patch test oils on your skin by rubbing a small drop on the inside of your wrist and letting it sit for 24 hours. If there is no reaction within this time, the essential oil may be safe for you to use. Patch test essential oils every time before using them on children. We do not recommend using essential oils on babies younger than one-year-old.
