For those of you that don’t know, I live in Ketchikan, Alaska, which is on a little island in Southeast Alaska, about an hour and forty-five minutes from Seattle (by jet). We have several claims to fame, but the two most people know is rain… 13 plus feet (yes we measure it in feet) a year and tourism. We’re the first stop as the cruise ships go up the Inside Passage and take in the beautiful forests of Cedar, Spruce and Hemlock, misty islands, salmon jumping and whales. We expect to see about 972,000 visitors to our little city this summer. Visitors come from all over the world and with them they bring all sorts of nasty things to share. Other places people suffer in the winter season, but for us it is the summer time that we have to give our immune system a boost! It is a time we should be enjoying our short break from the endless rains the rest of the year so it is just no fun to get forced downtime. The last several years I’ve managed to avoid it in the summer and I thought I’d share with you how…
Supporting your immune system is key!
The Essential Oils Immune Boost Combo:
- 5 drops Protective Blend
- 3 drops Melaleuca
- 3 drops Oregano
- 3 drops Frankincense
- 3 drops Lemon
Put drops of essential oil in a gel cap. Take when you want a boost! You can take up to three times a day. I don’t recommend Oregano internally for more than 14 days straight. Or you can substitute with Protective Blend Softgel caps. It is so convenient now that I don’t have to make our own, especially when I travel.
When traveling by air just pop a Protective beadlet or an Protective throat lozenge in your mouth for each leg of the flight to help support your immune system. The brave can just put a drop of Protective Blend oil right in their mouth.
Maintain Feelings of Clear Airways and Easy Breathing: I put Fractionated Coconut Oil on my chest and then add a drop of Respiratory Blend, Lime and Frankincense for extra respiratory support and to maintain clear airways. I like to diffuse Respiratory Blend as well. It smells wonderful as it soothes.
Protective Blend Foaming Hand soap is a must near all your sinks. Washing your hands frequently, substantially helps you maintain good health. Protective Blend in soap can support healthy immune function and helps protect against environmental threats. You can also use the Protective Blend Cleaner Concentrate to clean your home and help you stay healthy (plus it smells wonderful and works great).
I hope you get to enjoy your summer too and stay healthy! The sun is peaking out so I’m going to go play in my garden.
