As the weather cools off, the germs tend to be shared around with ease. To restrict my family’s exposure and limit the duration of colds and flus, we use Thieves.

Young Living’s Thieves comes in a whole range so it can surround your family – along with the essential oil is toothpaste, mouthwash, soap, foaming hand wash, spray, wipes… even household cleaner. It was developed for fighting viruses and bacteria (can be used instead of antibiotics with none of the side effects on gut flora) and even kills mould. A must have!!

Another handy essential oil at this time of year is Digize. This one is wonderful for the dreaded gastro bugs causing vomiting and diarrhoea. Apply a drop to the tummy and it will settle the gripey, wind pains. Ingest a few drops and it will stop vomiting or prevent it from even occurring if you have it early enough. And of course it will help control diarrhoea. It is magic – so much so that my daughter will just take it off the spoon – she knows it will make her feel better instantly.

Of course you can’t ingest all essential oils. I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils. They are 100% pure & therapeutic grade – not the chemically altered ones you find in the health food shops and other retailers.
