Essential Oils to Get You Through Cold Season | South Wake Raleigh Moms

Jan 23, 2018 | Around Town


Essential Oils are an amazing resource during the winter months! Oils are able to oxygenize your blood and reach every system in your body within five minutes. They work fast and are a natural way to support your body and protect your health.

Here are some recommended oils for the winter season:


Thieves Vitality
You can add a couple drops to tea or roll on the bottoms of your feet for an amazing immunity boost.


A great one to diffuse or rub onto the chest when you’re experiencing congestion.


Lemon & Frankincense
I roll these down the spine and on the bottom of our baby’s feet. Another excellent way to boost immunity and is gentle enough for your baby!


Stomach bug? DiGize is excellent for any tummy trouble! Roll on tummy or add a drop to your tea!


Lavender, lemon, & peppermint
Seasonal struggles? Use this blend with a carrier oil and roll on your chest!


If your child is having trouble sleeping because they’re not feeling well, diffuse lavender to help them relax.




All of these oils are available in the Young Living premium starter kit! The premium starter kit is the absolute best way to get started with high quality, therapeutic grade oils that can transform your home! Grab your kit of 11 of the best oils, and a diffuser of your choice for only $160.


(SWRMs will get $15 back with the purchase of any premium starter kit – just mention this post!)
