Fight Off Flu Season With Oils

Essential oils have grown increasingly popular with good reason: they promise benefits from calming skin conditions to soothing sore muscles, from curing nausea to healing common symptoms of the flu. Personal raw care materials supplier, Bell Chem, carries the purest forms of essential oils, and here are only a few of the oils we stock and the flu symptoms they relieve.

  • Feeling nauseated? Add peppermint oil to a diffuser. It contains menthol, which helps open respiratory passages. Peppermint is often touted as the “world’s oldest medicine,” and doctors today regularly prescribe it in tablet or capsule form to patients asking for alternative treatment. When applied topically, it helps reduce fevers and headaches.

  • Eucalyptus oil has antiviral properties that help treat a wide range of respiratory issues including a cough, sore throat, runny nose, congestion, and bronchitis. When sickness steals your energy, eucalyptus oil can relieve lethargy, stress, and mental exhaustion.

  • Rosemary oil is both antibacterial and antifungal. It helps ward off airborne viruses and assuages headaches, indigestion, and poor blood circulation. It also relaxes tissues, thus soothing achy muscles.

  • Citrus is renowned for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. Lemon oil is no exception, and it effectively fights against diseases such as fever, malaria, and typhoid, and can treat stomach disorders as well.

  • Frankincense oil alleviates upper respiratory infection symptoms. It loosens phlegm, suppresses coughs, and eases breathing with its anti-inflammatory properties.
