How We Are Surviving Seasonal Sickness | Essentially Well Mommas

January 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

If you have kids that leave your house at all, I'm sure that at some point during the winter you will experience some sort of winter seasonal sickness.  Somewhere over the last week my three year old caught the flu.  As soon as we go back from the ER we started oiling up.  Here is what we used to help us get through the flu.

For the three year old I started by applying Thieves oil to her feet along with Peppermint oil and Lemon oil for fever.  I also applied Peppermint and Lemon oil (diluted with grapeseed oil) along her spine for fever.  I did this every four hours along with 1/2 teaspoon of Sambucol black elderberry syrup.  I used Thieves Spray to mist the couch and beds that she slept on and Thieves cleaner to clean all the doorknobs, bathroom and anything else she may have touched while contagious.  By day 3 she was fever free and acting like her normal self!

For our six year old I tried to keep him away from his sister.  I applied Thieves oil to his feet every four hours along with 1 tsp of Sambucol black elderberry syrup.  We are on day 4 and he has not shown any symptoms yet.

For myself I took Sambucol black elderberry tablets every 4 hours along with capsules of Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, Frankincense, Lemongrass, Oregano, Peppermint and Thieves.  I also drank 2-4 ounces of Ningxia Red on day one and two and am now just drinking 1-2 ounces a day.  

We used all three diffusers in our house (one in each of the kids' rooms and one in our living room) to diffuse Thieves and Peppermint oil continuously for the first two days and now am just diffusing in the living room during the day and at night in the kids' rooms.  I have one Young Living diffuser and two Now diffusers.  My favorite is the one pictured above!  It holds a lot of water and actually is like a mini humidifier that you can put essential oils in.  

I am convinced that all of this has helped us get through and kept the rest of the family from catching the flu from our three year old!

Here is a list of all that we used along with info on where to find them:
