Okay, I know I've posted a lot about the cold/flu season and using Thieves essential oil blend but here's one more post!
Immunity is more than keeping your space clean. Sleep. Don't underestimate sleep, it's the 🔑 to getting and staying healthy. To improve sleep, one oily blend that I've coined "Sleepy +" blend contains Lavender + Cedarwood + Vetiver EOs. Lavender EO + Cedarwood EO is a popular blend for sleep, and I top off my blend with Vetiver EO. Why it works... Vetiver's properties include calming, grounding and even a sedative for the nervous system. For me, turning off my brain is my biggest struggle at night. Vetiver EO grounds me and I'm able to enjoy a deeper sleep.

My 3 steps for boosting immunity include the Immunity Roller, Sleepy + diffuser blend and Thieves Spray. Here are the recipes...
Immunity Roller = 10 mL roller bottle: 15 drops Thieves + 8 drops Purification + 8 drops Frankincense + 5 drops Lemon + 5 drops Oregano & fill with carrier oil.
Sleepy + Blend = Add 3 drops Lavender EO + 2 drops Cedarwood EO + 1 drop Vetiver EO to your diffuser at bedtime.
Thieves Spray = Using a 2 ounce glass spray bottle, add 10 drops Thieves EO blend + 1 tsp alcohol-free, unscented witch hazel & fill the remaining with distilled water. Spray on hands and surfaces, as needed. Safe for kiddos and pets. This spray is free of triclosan, parabens and chemically synthesized artificial fragrances.
