Many essential oils can help boost and support our immune systems.* When we take care of ourselves through diet and exercise, our body systems receive what they need to help us function properly. However, when we don’t eat well or exercise, we limit our body’s ability to help better provide for us. This is where essential oils can encourage better support of these vital systems.
The immune system is a complicated network of organs and cells that include your lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, lymphocytes (white blood cells known as B- and T-cells), the thymus, and leukocytes (another type of white blood cell). Each piece works together to defend and protect the body.
There’s a recommended set of oils called The Immune Support Kit.
Below is a list of oils within the kit and their uses.
doTERRA Breathe® (5 mL): Add it directly to a diffuser or apply it, neat or diluted for young children and those with sensitivities, to your chest to help minimize the effects of seasonal and environmental threats.
