I love this diffuser blend (this one is for adults). It’s got rich coniferous notes and when you breathe in, you can just feel the camphoraceous Ravintsara and bright Lemon opening up your sinuses.
A blend of Fir Needle, Lemon, and Ravintsara essential oils can be an excellent choice to ease cold symptoms and support immunity. Each of these oils brings unique properties that can contribute to respiratory health, provide a refreshing aroma, and offer immune support.
This Aromatherapy diffuser blend for colds and flu is helpful, because Siberian Fir and Ravintsara have airborne antimicrobial properties. They can help take out viruses before the viruses get into your system!
The chemical components bornyl acetate (in Siberian Fir), limonene (in Lemon), and 1,8 cineole (in Ravintsara) may give this essential oil diffuser blend immune-supportive properties, especially for respiratory issues where congestion is present. So while they’re cleansing your air, they can boost your body’s defenses. They can help you overcome a respiratory infection quickly if you do happen to come down with something.
Properties of Each Essential Oil:
1. Fir Needle (Abies sibirica):
- Benefits: Fir Needle oil has a crisp, fresh scent and is known for its respiratory benefits. It may help ease congestion, open the airways, and provide a sense of vitality.
2. Lemon (Citrus limon):
- Benefits: Lemon oil is uplifting and high in vitamin C. It has antimicrobial properties and can provide a refreshing scent that may help combat fatigue associated with cold symptoms.
3. Ravintsara (Cinnamomum camphora ct. cineole):
- Benefits: Ravintsara is often used for its immune-supporting properties. It has a pleasant, camphoraceous aroma and may contribute to respiratory well-being.
- Add the recommended drops to a diffuser and run it in your living space. This will help purify the air, promote respiratory comfort, and create a refreshing atmosphere.
Topical Application (Diluted):
- Dilute the essential oil blend in a carrier oil (such as jojoba or sweet almond oil) and apply to the chest, back, or wrists. This can provide ongoing respiratory and immune support.
- Add a couple of drops of the blend to a bowl of hot water. Inhale the steam for 5-10 minutes to support respiratory health.
- Add a few drops of the blend to a warm bath. Enjoy a relaxing soak to promote overall well-being and respiratory comfort.
