Essential Oil Remedy for Cold and Flu: Cold Rollerball Recipe to Support Immunity
Tackle your cold and flu symptoms and get natural relief with this essential oil remedy for cold and flu. This easy cold rollerball recipe supports your body’s immunity. It can also help to soothe cold symptoms by offering congestion relief in addition to aiding focus and energy. (After all, we all feel run down when we’re sick!)
Aromatherapeutic Essential Oil Remedy for Cold and Flu
With cold and flu season especially bad this year, not to mention that new coronavirus now making rounds in the United States, I’ve taken extra steps to naturally support my body’s immunity. I’ve taken both elderberry syrup as well as fire cider preventatively, as well as to reduce symptoms when I do catch a cold. (There’s been some nasty illnesses being passed around here in Virginia. Luckily, I’ve managed to avoid catching the flu thus far.) While fire cider is pretty amazing at offering both immune support as well as relieving nasal congestion, occasionally you need a little extra boost. This is where aromatherapy steps in.
This easy 4-ingredient, aromatherapeutic cold and flu remedy essential oil blend recipe offers natural cold relief throughout the year. Simply mix the ingredients together in a rollerball bottle and apply to pulse points. Or use the essential oil blend for cold and flu in the recipe below in your diffuser for simple, natural cold relief.

I need to try this. Usually cold and flu blends smell really medicinal, but I like how you added mandarin for a bit of sweetness. Thanks for sharing!
