Cold & Flu Defense: Small But Mighty

Cold & Flu Defense: Small But Mighty

Your go-to remedy for a strong immune system.

Cold & Flu Defense is a botanical blend of seven powerful essential oils in organic jojoba oil that helps stimulate and support the immune system. It absorbs quickly, is non-sticky and non-greasy, and has a fresh herbal scent. The goal is to both inhale the aromatic molecules - by rolling it under and around your nostrils and breathing in the scent - and to absorb the molecules - by applying it to your skin. 

Key Properties & Ingredients:

The highly-effective blend provides antiviral, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties, along with immune stimulating and strengthening benefits. Cold & Flu Defense is ideally used preventatively, though if you're already fighting something off, the expectorant and decongestant properties of the oils will help open your airways and move an illness along quicker. 

Essential Oils:  Thyme  /  Ravensara  / Hyssop  /  Lavender /  Rosemary  /  Tea Tree  /  Niaouli

How I use Cold & Flu Defense:

I keep this small-but-mighty rollerball on my bedside table and use it as part of my nightly bedtime routine. I roll it under my nose and along the lymph nodes on each side of my neck. Then I massage it into my palms and the soles of my feet (the skin is highly absorbent in both of these areas). It's the last thing I do before I dive under cozy covers and drift off to sleep. 

I also keep a bottle in my purse and use it as a quick and easy hand sanitizer. It works beautifully any time or place; I just roll a small amount over my palms and rub them together. Bonus: it's alcohol-free, so it doesn't dry out your hands like most hand sanitizers do. 

And finally, this remedy is always in my bag when I travel, ready to roll under my nose on flights or long roadtrips, keeping my airways moisturized AND fighting bacteria and viruses.  

Other places and ways to use Cold & Flu Defense:

  • In busy classrooms. Teachers and students both can tuck a rollerball in their desk or backpack to help ward off the spread of viruses and germs.

  • At the gym. Apply before sharing equipment and locker rooms with fellow members.

  • On public transportation. So many railings, seats, and doors to touch... 

  • In hotel rooms. Traveling means different air in different places and climates, and hotel room air is often stale and dry. 

  • At work. Keep a rollerball at your desk to use daily. Don't forget to sanitize the phone, keyboard, and other frequently used items too. 

  • During a yoga class. While you're focusing on your breath, inhale the beneficial aromatics of this blend. With it rolled discreetly under your nose, it won't disturb anyone else in class. 

Bottle size: 0.35 fl oz glass rollerball bottle for easy application
Shelf life: 6-9 months, stored in a cool dark spot away from heat/sunlight
