Essential Oils have the power to overcome fungus, viruses, bacteria, and more. There usually limited or reduced to oils that just ‘smell good’ but this organic substance proves itself useful in more ways than one such as cleaning (without the aftermath of harmful chemicals from modern cleaning supplies), aromatherapy, heightening focus, and overall spirituality.  Essential oils are an oncoming wave along with alternative/traditional medicine.

Not long ago, I was up to my neck in hefty medical bills, sick kids missing school, and wasted days feeling sick and cruddy. I’m not the type of mom who races her kids to the doctor, but on several occasions that’s what we had to do with sick kids who were not getting better. “Flu season” can wipe out a family for weeks, in more ways than one.


Feature sick
Our youngest little daughter really had a tough time with this season’s illnesses. 🙁 🙁 🙁


But honestly, a huge blessing came as the result of all of it. My super nice neighbor had been sharing with me about how she was using essential oils for this and that. She was excited (and always smelled nice), but I just nodded nicely. I’m all for alternative methods of healthcare, but I never thought of essential oils as anything more than making things smell nice.


That is until one morning I was over at her house to pick up our one healthy child who had been over to play. As we chatted, I mentioned to my neighbor that I’d been so congested with a sore throat for a couple days. Her eyes lit up and she handed me a little bottle and said, “This will kick it’s butt!” She told me to rub a couple drops on my feet or chest and it would help. Yes, I did want to roll my eyes when she said that. But I was the sick one, and she stood there perfectly healthy and holding out a small bottle. So I graciously accepted the bottle and went home and did what she said.


(I tested a small amount first. Some people may be more sensitive to it.)




Like a good mom, I grabbed all my sick kids (and poor, sniffling husband), and did the same thing for them. It worked for them as well! Within a few days, our home was free of aches, sniffles, and sneezes, including my teenager, who’d had a very stubborn cough for what seemed like an eternity.


A few weeks later, I began coming down with what felt like the flu, and within hours of using this special little bottle, I was fine. Nothing ever came of the sore throat, chills, and aches I was experiencing. Another miracle.



Oil drop

Who knew that a few drops of oil could change a family’s life so quickly?



Not only were we quickly eliminating cold and flu symptoms, but we were also nipping things in the bud before they exploded into an illness. Not only that, we were doing it safely and naturally, no harsh drugs and chemicals. This essential oil blend has the power to fight viruses, bacteria, fungus, and more. Not bad for a tiny little bottle, right?


But what I didn’t understand was this: If this worked so well, then why do so many of us keep depending solely on pharamaceuticals and factory derived medicines when we get sick? I don’t want to get into conversations about “big pharma” and all that. What I DO think, however, is that most people think the exact same thing that I thought when my neighbor first told me about essential oils, that they’re for smelling good and feeling nice, without any real therapeutic or medicinal qualities.


I’m not sure how our culture decided to trivialize the power of essential oils, because other cultures have not. The people of Japan, for example, use essential oils regularly. Not only is the country of Japan reputable for overall health, but the Japanese government currently has on record over 50,000 people living over the age of 100! That’s one healthy country! Can we learn something from them?


Essential oils are basically the highly concentrated essence of the plant. We know plants are vital sources of antioxidants, antivirals, antibacterials, vitamins & minerals, phytonutrients, and more. So think of a drop of essential oil as the ultra-concentrated, highly potent, antioxidant-rich, power punch from the plant. There’s much more to it than just that, but thinking of it that way is a great start!




The little miracle bottle is called Salis™ Immunity Blend. It contains oils of clove, wild orange, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, rosemary, and myrrh. According to the company, this unique blend has been formulated to boost immunity and eradicate germs, viruses, and other toxins.
