Essential oil blends for cold and flu

Hello everyone!


In most cases, having the flu means increasing self-care and waiting for the infection to run its course. The go-to solution for many people is to reach for over-the-counter medicines. However, another effective method is using essential oils as a topical rub or for aromatherapy. I already shared my recipe for a homemade vapour rub in a previous post. In this post, I will focus on aromatherapy!


Certain essential oils can help alleviate flu symptoms by clearing your nasal passage and reducing headaches. Some oils may even have antiviral benefits to help treat infections and reduce fever. Essential oils can be a great ally in keeping viruses, bacteria and germs at bay. As we are currently facing a pandemic, these oils can come in handy to help you keep your home a safe place for you and your loved ones. That is why today, I'm sharing the best antiviral essential oils to diffuse in your home.

Inhalation is the most beneficial way to use essential oils for the flu. A diffuser can be an easy way to get the benefits of aromatherapy, any time of day or night. Purifying your indoor air is very easy to do. Using pure essential oils is a natural and safe way to do so. 


Add essential oils blends below to your diffuser with recommended water for your diffuser tank!


There are some blends for cleaning the air:

  • Eucalyptus/Lavender
