10 Tips To Not Get Sick (Plus One Bonus One!!!)
What can I do to keep from getting sick this winter???
The question has come up way too many times for me to ignore it.
(Also people keep asking me if we got our flu shot. No, we didn't.)
I'm absolutely not a doctor, but this is what we do in our house to stay well each winter. I can't say it works 100% of the time, but I can say that when anyone in our family does come down with something we get rid of it right quick!
Here is my Top Ten List to stay well and get well:
❤ Drink tons of water. 3-4 Litres a day if you can. This will have oodles of other benefits to your body, but it will boost that immune system.
❤ Wash your hands. Obviously. We use the On Guard Hand Wash in our bathrooms and kitchen. It doesn't just wash your hands, and it doesn't just smell good. The essential oil blend will help to kill off the ickies and there are no chemicals to knock your immune system back down.
❤ We have diffusers running all the time right now in our home. On Guard Oil Blend on its own is plenty powerful, or you can add Lemon and Melaleuca to up the potency and change the aroma.
❤ I've been making a quart of Singing Canary every day! It's so good for the immune system, and Baobab Powder is extremely high in anti-oxidants. The original recipe if from Trim Healthy Mama, this is my version!
- 2 Lemons
- 12 oz Water
- 1 tsp Turmeric
- 1 tsp Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil
- 1 tsp Vital Proteins Collagen
- 2 pinches Mineral Salt
- 1-2 splashes Vanilla Extract
- Liquid Stevia to taste (start small and add drops one at a time)
- 2-4 drops Lemon essential oil (I use doTERRA of course!)
- 2 tbls Baobab Powder
Peel the lemons and keep all the white stuff on there! Cut in quarters and remove the seeds. Put in the blender with the water and blend really well. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend really well again! Fill a quart jar with ice and pour your drink over the top, add water to top it off to the rim. It's SOOOOO good! Let me know if you try it!
❤ Take a 4 oz glass bottle and add add 1 tsp of On Guard Cleaner Concentrate, 10 drops On Guard, 10 drops Lemon and 10 drops Melaleuca. Spray this on doorknobs, all surfaces, phones, etc.
❤ Take On Guard+ Capsules whenever I feel something coming on, or someone else around me is sick. I NEVER travel without these!
❤ If I feel like something is coming on then I wait 30 minutes after taking the On Guard+ Capsules and I take a dose of Oscillococcinum. I can't pronounce it, but I swear it works.
❤ Detox bath at least 3 times a week! I like to take 1 cup of Epsom Salts and mix with 2 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Juniper Berry. It's my heaven scent and super detoxifying.
❤ Essential Oils on the bottom of the feet, down the spine, behind the ears and on the throat. The doTERRA Touch Rollers are my savior here...On Guard (all-purpose immune system boost), Oregano (the big guns!), Peppermint (cooling), Lavender (dries up stuff in the nose), Breathe (for when I can't breathe), Melaleuca (use around outside of ears for draining), Frankincense (does it all), DigestZen (any and all tummy issues). Basically if you don't have the Touch Kit you are TOTALLY missing out!!! You can make your own roller blends of course, I'm just lazy.
❤ Choose LOVE, not FEAR. At every moment we have the choice to choose love or fear. Please don't sit around worrying about getting the flu, instead choose love and figure out what you can do to love + support your body the very best way you can this year.
❤ Sorry, this is #11...NO SUGAR!!!!!! Seriously, I mean it. Sugar is a disaster to your immune system. Disaster. Enough said. If you don't believe me you can look it up.
As you may know, working with Essential Oils is my first love, it's where I started on this beautiful journey. If you would like to get started using doTERRA I will do that for you.
It's what I do.
It's what I love to do.
