With the cooler weather and beautiful changing leaves comes the start of pesky cold and flu season.
We offer a variety of essential oils, diffusers, and herbs to keep you feeling healthy!
Diffusing Essential Oils
Did you know that diffusing certain essential oils can boost your immune system, and either prevent you from catching nasty cold and flu viruses, or help you get back on your feet quicker? Diffusers distribute the oils into the air, not only making the space smell good but also providing a powerful dose of healing power as you breath it in.
Many people keep them at home, and often use them overnight to ensure they receive a steady stream while they sleep. But they also make a great addition to the office, where germs are commonly spread between co-workers. An increasing number of people are keeping a small diffuser at their desk or workspace, allowing them to stay protected through the day while also providing others in their office with the benefits.
OnGaurd is doTerra’s Protective Blend. We diffuse it often in our treatment rooms to ensure that our patients are receiving a steady boost on top of their acupuncture. As you can see, there are many different ways that you can use this oil, not just by diffusing!
Essential Oils aren’t only beneficial this time of year though. They can be used for overall wellness and maintenance, or to treat a number of issues! If you are diffusing in the office, or other places where people may be feeling stressed or overwhelmed (even at home), perhaps you want to use calming oils such as Lavender or Peppermint to help soothe and relax. doTerra offers a wider series of blends as well; Balance helps to ground the mind, and blends like Elevation or Citrus Bliss provide a more uplifting effect. These are all things that we can use!
In addition to the uses mentioned above, Essential Oils can also treat issues like:
- Trouble sleeping
- Digestive issues
- Weight Loss
- PMS and menstrual related issues
- Pain relief
- Fungal infections
- Viral infections
- And so much more!
We offer several diffuser styles in our clinic, such as those pictured below, allowing you to find the one that best suits your individual needs.
Certain oils can be taken internally, as well as applied directly on the skin, for stronger and sometimes more immediate effects. There are so many different uses and applications for these wonderous products, and we do offer free classes on how to use them as medicine, beauty products, and even to replace household cleaners.
You can check out our Special Events page to see dates for upcoming classes, and you can also suggest dates or request a private class.
Be sure to ask about the Essential Oils the next time you’re in the clinic!
