You might ask how anyone could live with the flu but not actually contract the flu. It’s almost impossible, I know, but even though I was a believer in essential oils before this event, I am absolutely a firm believer in them after this event.
I do have to start with the fact that I truly try to take extra care of myself during flu season. I limit sugar as much as possible, take immune boosting products such as: elderberry syrup, colloidal silver, probiotics and garlic. I drink lots of immune boosting hot teas and even limit the honey I add. My husband on the other hand doesn’t put in as much effort to protect his immune system and ended up with the flu. The whole family is working on him to cut out the pop!
So, when the test came back positive for the flu I started extra doses of everything immune boosting and immune protection oils. I was completely fine until my son came down with it. I could not stay away from him. I had to hold him, he had to sleep with me and that entails him breathing, coughing and sneezing directly on me. How does one avoid the flu virus now?!
To be completely honest I’m not sure I completely avoided it. There were 3-4 times that I actually felt like I was getting it. Body aches, chills, head hurting, but I slathered myself with immune boosting, anti-viral oils and I would feel completely fine! It actually felt miraculous! I don’t know how else to explain it. I feel like I was meant to have this experience so that I could share all that I am learning with others. I am a firm believer in the benefits these essential oils provide because I experience these benefits everyday, not just in this extreme case of the flu. I can’t wait to share all of our blends with all of you.

We’ll also have the “flu shot” roller bottle available for our open house on Small Shop Saturday just in case the flu decides to stop by your house this year. And if you need an emergency bottle, call me and I’ll get it to you ASAP! Keep checking back for lots more exciting things to come!
