With cold & flu season in full swing everyone wants to keep from getting sick. This immune boosting essential oil roller blend will help you stay healthy all year long.
I love fall and I love winter. But what I don’t love about it is all the bugs that seem to go around this time of the year. They can really suck the joy right out of the holidays.

What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the vital fluids of a plant, shrub, root, herb, flower, seed or tree. They are a highly concentrated form of the natural oils in a plant.
The oil inside of a plant operates as the plants immune system. They help protect the plant against predators and disease and they also aid in plant pollination.
The oil is essential to the life and health of the plant. You can read more about essential oils and how they work here.
Immune Boosting Essential Oils
There are several essential oils that are great for immune support. Tea tree, ginger and oregano are just a few that come to mind. You can read this post to discover more immune boosting essential oils.
I’ve chosen the most potent and effective immune boosting essential oils for this recipe.
Roller Bottle Blends
Roller bottle blends are a convenient and easy way to use essential oils. You just add whatever essential oils you like as well as a carrier oil to your roller bottle and you have a blend that has already been diluted and is ready to use.

A few things you will need for this recipe besides the essential oils themselves are listed below.

Where Should I Buy Essential Oils?
As essential oils have become increasingly popular over the years they’ve also become much easier to obtain. But do not be deceived. Not all oils are created equal.
Many oils being sold today are synthetic. Your body processes synthetic oils as a toxin which does not help your body but actually works against it. So please do your research before purchasing essential oils.
There are many essential oil companies that sell high quality essential oils. I used to use Young Living oils exclusively but I just couldn’t afford to use them anymore.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover several brands that sell amazing, high quality essential oils at very affordable prices.

I hope that this immune boosting essential oil roller bottle helps you and your family stay healthy.
