Our Purair Room Spray is a wonderful aid for killing any ‘illness-causing’ bacteria in a room and keeping you and your family well! Diffusers are also a flexible fresh air solution as you can blend different oils and allow your room to be filled with a variety of flavours and scents.
Using a diffuser is an easy way to disperse essential oils so that their scent can fill the room with the oil’s natural fragrance. An essential oil diffuser is a great way to freshen up your home without overpowering the senses; an added bonus is that it does not rely on any harmful chemicals.
Here are our favourite essential oils, which can be added to your diffuser to protect your family from illnesses:
Bergamot oil recharges the central nervous system with renewed energy which indirectly helps strengthen the immune system. Bergamot’s coumarin content has also been found to stimulate white blood cell transformation which can be important for cancer patients.
Peppermint essential oil is an excellent oil to start using at the onset of a cold or the flu. It can also help with headaches, increase mental clarity, and promotes energy. Peppermint can be used topically, but be sure to test it or dilute it as it can burn people with sensitive skin. You can also use peppermint essential oil for controlling fevers by applying it, diluted, to the back of the neck and on the soles of the feet for relief.
Rosemary is a very detoxifying essential oil in the sense that it encourages the cleansing of the excretory ducts and organs which drains the hepatobiliary system (the liver, gallbladder, and bile ducts); this process strengthens natural immunity.
Eucalyptus is known for its ability to support upper respiratory health and break up congestion. It’s also an anti-inflammatory for the lungs, which makes it a perfect essential oil to use in saunas, a hot shower, in facial steam recipes, and cupped over the face during colds and viruses where there is mucus present. Eucalyptus also stimulates your antibodies to help fight infection
Lemon essential oil comes with many benefits. It not only supports mood and concentration but it also has an ability to lower fevers, heal infections, and relieve asthma. This essential oil can especially do wonders for the immune system as it has detoxifying effects on the body. With a few drops of lemon added to your glass, you can make this your refreshing morning drink to ward off toxins in the blood and to keep away infections and other diseases.
Cinnamon Leaf oil is well-recognized for its musky and spicy smell, and has the ability to stimulate the immune system, preventing you from getting sick. It also decreases inflammation, relieves depression, fights parasites, fights viruses, and fights free radicals.
Frankincense is an amazing overall immune booster. It doesn’t just stimulate the immune system, it modulates it by helping your body produce more white blood cells. Frankincense is also an excellent anti-inflammatory and can help with common gut problems.
