5 Plant Extract Oils That Boost Your Immune System—At Any Age!
Clove has the power to kill nasty germs and fungus. A study in the Annals of Microbiology concludes clove essential oil has anti-carcinogenic activity against a large number of oral pathogens. Clove neutralizes harmful Staphylococcus bacteria (“staph” infections) as well as E. coli (the same bacteria responsible for food poisoning), as well as Candida albicans. The main natural chemical in clove, eugenol, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory activities stronger than over-the-counter NSAIDs.
Lemon contains broad-spectrum antiviral activity. That means it protects you against several different kinds of viruses, such as those that cause colds and the flu. Lemon also greatly assists the body’s detoxification processes. An active ingredient in lemon, linalool, has antibacterial properties, especially against a nasty bug called “acinetobacter,” which can cause serious infections and antibiotic resistance.
Cinnamon boosts your respiratory system and protects you against unfriendly bacteria in your body. A compound in cinnamon called “cinnamic aldehyde” is the active ingredient that kills several harmful types of fungi, including Aspergillus niger, aka “black mold.” And in studies using cell lines, cinnamon has been shown to suppress the growth of tumors.
Eucalyptus has been used for centuries to help people breathe easier. A particular species of it, eucalyptus globulus, has been shown in research studies to help inhibit several types of bacteria that can make you very sick, such as H. influenzae and S. pneumoniae.
Rosemary improves your immune system as it reduces muscle pain and the inflammation response. It also breaks up mucus throughout the body. Laboratory studies reveal the antioxidants in rosemary neutralize free radical damage.
My doctor explained it to me pretty easily: Every 5,000 miles or so, we take our car into the mechanic to keep things running smoothly. These 5 plant extract oils are like the tune-up your immune system needs (but never receives).
Immunity: The Easiest Way To Protect You And Your Family
Now, it is possible to purchase each of these plant extract oils separately, test out different amounts and portions, and try to create your own blend—if you have the time, patience, and money. But with driving my grandkids to school, volunteering at church and trying to stay active at the YMCA, I have no time to mind my own apothecary. Besides, I don’t have the expertise and buying all 5 oils in large, individual patches is very expensive.
Luckily, my doctor pointed me in the right direction, the better direction, where a perfectly crafted blend is available for pennies on the dollar and will save you, Lord knows, how much money and time!
It’s a blend with a straightforward name: Immunity.
You may be able to find a product with essential oils in your local drug store, but you’re not going to find anything that’s close to the purity (100%) and effectiveness of Immunity (believe me, I looked . . . and looked and looked).
I’ve been using Immunity for a couple of years now. I not only diffuse it in my home and our RV before vacation time, but I also add some drops of it to my nightly bath. I even use it diluted with water as a disinfectant in the kitchen and bathroom (all over the house, really).
I’m delighted to say that my husband and myself aren’t the only ones in my family who have stayed healthy this entire year, despite all of the nasty and contagious illnesses festering around. Immunity has even kept my grandkids from missing school, though lots of their friends have had to stay home because of colds or the vicious flu.
Immunity has not only kept my family and me healthy, but it’s also given me peace of mind. I no longer worry about what life will be like if my husband or I get really sick. Now that I know how to “tune up” my immune system, life has finally gotten easier!
