This past week has been a very difficult week for me, I contracted the flu virus. The one that knocks you flat on your back, pain in the chest when you breathe, joints ache all over, hard to keep your eyes open, and really hard to get over flu.
After day four, I made sure I went to see the physician. She said to keep to yourself and wait it out, which I was planning on doing anyways. She suggested taking ibuprofen for the joint pain and migraines, NOT ME, but here is what I did instead while I waited it out.
In my diffuser to support easy breathing during the day:
- 4 drops Easy Air
-2 drops Lime ( optional )
-2 drops Cardamom
ADD 1 drop Vetiver to the mix for night.
In the house:
- Diffusing 4 drops On Guard in every other diffuser.
doTERRA On Guard, a proprietary essential oil blend, provides a natural and effective alternative for immune support when used internally.* As one of doTERRA’s best-selling blends, doTERRA On Guard protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested.* doTERRA On Guard can be taken internally on a daily basis to maintain healthy immune function and support healthy cardiovascular function.* It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaner. When diffused, doTERRA On Guard helps purify the air, and can be very energizing and uplifting.

I also took a warm bath in Epsom Salts with Siberian Fir and Lavender, it was very soothing and relaxing.
