How to Beat Winter Colds With Essential Oils (+ save 20%!)

Want to help stave off colds and the flu this winter? I’d highly recommend essential oils! 

Rocky Mountain Oils is one of my favorite essential oil companies. I love that they offer high-quality oils, that they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and that they price their oils significantly lower than many other essential oil companies.

You can go here to see my full review of Rocky Mountain Essential Oils, but it’s safe to say that I feel like I can wholeheartedly endorse them. {For those of you who know me well, you know this is a big deal.}

They recently sent me some of their Winter Collection oils to try out, and I love them! Here are three I love:

1. Immune Strength

Immune Strength is one of my all-time favorite oils and is a go-to at our house — especially when we feel sickness coming on. This oil combines the beneficial properties of powerful herbs, spices and citruses to help your body stay strong during the winter months.

Immune Strength has spicy overtones, with a whiff of citrus which then descends into the rich, deep, herbal undertone. It makes you feel calm and comforted — and I love how it smells!

I’ve used Immune Strength topically multiple times over the past few months when we were all experiencing various levels of sickness. I ended up never getting anything more than a slight fever and a cold and I think some of this was due to applying Immune Strength topically and diffusing it almost every day while we weren’t feeling well.

Immune Strength Essential Oil Blend may help:

  • Support all of the functions of the body — adrenal, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and lymphatic systems
  • Supports the immune system
  • Loosen mucus due to occasional environmental threats

2. Purify

Purify is a winter must-have for its ability to clean up the air in your home. This is part of the Rocky Mountain Oils cleaning line.

Purify Essential Oil Blend has a sharp, clean aroma that can help clean and freshen the air. Try diffusing it in your kitchen or bathroom to help clear the air. Or, use it when cleaning countertops and sinks.

Purify Essential Oil Blend may help:

  • Clean the air in your home
  • Clear out the scent of smoke and eliminate other noxious odors
  • Can help repel insects

3. Deep Breathe

Deep Breathe‘s sharp scent encourages you to breathe more deeply. Deep Breathe Essential Oil Blend is a strong blend with a sharp scent similar to Tea Tree with notes of Pine. The combination of these oils inspires users to inhale deeply.

Deep Breathe Essential Oil Blend may help:

  • Contributes to feelings of easy breathing and clear airways
  • Promotes general feelings of wellness

Jesse was having some chest congestion last week and I suggested he use this oil before bed. The next day, he came to me asking where the oil was because he said it helped him breathe so much better! We’ve also been diffusing it at night in our room for him.

    What diffuser do you use?

  • Charity says:

    This is not an exclusive just for your readers it is a sale they are already having and it is open to anyone that visits their site. I was on the site earlier today and also received an email about this sale. I love their oils as well.

  • Sarah says:

    We swear by diffusing lemon, peppermint (only if kids are above age 6 for safety reasons) and lemon during the day or thieves oil and we use eucalyptus at night. We swear by elderberry syrup, garlic cloves and goot. Apple cider vinegar is also great. Us adults take fire cider, though admittedly I didn’t make any this year.

  • lyss says:

    We try to take elderberry regularly and that really helps with warding off illness. If I feel something coming on, I take a hot bath and drink hot herb tea. Another thing that sounds totally weird is to put hydrogen peroxide in your ears. Just put a few drops in and let it bubble and fizz. It’ll kill the germs that’s making you sick!
    I’ve recently got on board with using essential oils and I think they really help! I have a diffuser, but usually it stays in the living room. Lately I’ve been putting a few drops on a cotton ball and setting that on my nightstand. I’ve done lavender just because, and also breathe type blends when I was a bit congested. It really helped!
    I admit I haven’t tried RMO, though I’ve heard it’s great. I’m loving plant therapy, and they’re a whole lot cheaper.

    How do you use the immune oil and the deep breathe one? I don’t know what to do with them other than diffuse them. 🙂
