Nothing is more disruptive to a kids life and schedule as when they fall sick. In fact, nothing is more disruptive to a MOTHER’S life when their kid falls sick. School, work, play, rest even meal times gets affected.

When my old kid was 6 months old, my household was dealing with a crazy bug. It went round and round and round my household for three months – me, my husband, the kiddos, the helper and then the process repeated all over again. That’s when I had enough; taking medicine for three months showed me that much of it was symptomatic relief.  We were not living above the wellness line and thus, we kept falling ill. Thats when I started using essential oils. My first oil was Thieves, I diffused it all around my house and that was when the traveling bug stopped and we all got well!

Some essential oils work to help stimulate the production of the white cells that specifically fight infection, while others enhance cell regeneration that is an essential part of healing. We can also for rest and sleep to help accelerate healing and wellness.

Here are 5 of my favorite go to oils to help boost immunity when the going gets tough.


Oil of oregano is made of the leaves as well as flowers of the wild oregano plant discovered expanding naturally within the distant mountainous parts of the Mediterranean where there is no pollution. It is just a member of the mint family. The flowers and leaves are gathered once the oil content of the plant is in its highest. It features a history which extends back to the ancient Greeks, whose name for it translates into “joy of the mountain”. They used it to dealing with an infection associated illnesses and also diseases.

Thieves is an essential oil blend and one of the best-selling products available from Young Living.

French authorities recognized that there was such value in this mixture that upon the thieves’ capture, they received a more merciful punishment on condition that they divulge the ingredients in their secret formula.
