Super Immune Blend
About the Blend: Eight very highly‑regarded immune system supporting oils in one formula. The perfect 'extra‑strength' blend for superior protection.
Many essential oils are known to have anti-viral and anti-microbial effects, with a significant amount of research performed over the last decade. These oils may enhance the strength of the immune system through subtle 'tuning' -- by changing membrane potentials and increasing messenger receptor activity are two ways science has uncovered.
Melissa (Lemon Balm) has been the subject of a great many studies in Europe for its antiviral effects, with perhaps the largest body of evidence of any essential oil. Its also considered one of the most uplifting aromatics, an action that can be very enhancing to the immune system. Melissa is a rare and precious oil with one of the most profound immunostimulant actions used in aroma-therapeutics. Thyme, Benchmark is also a very complex antimicrobial; Thyme essential oil was recently studied for the synergistic antibiotic action of its natural individual constituents. Ravensara, often prescribed for bronchial infections, shares many therapeutic actions with Eucalyptus. It is thought to be an even more effective anti-viral essential oil. Bay Laurel has been studied specifically for its effects against the SARS virus, and is a highly-complex essential oil, containing 7 of the 9 molecular classes found in essential oils. Lavender and Melaleuca ericafolia (also known as Rosalina or Lavender Tea Tree, a 'new' essential oil from Australia) are included for their positive effects on the immune system, as well as being broad spectrum antimicrobials. Finally, we're now including Pinus sylvestris, as Dr. Kurt Schaubelt is particularly keen on the antiviral properties of Pine essential oil.
Together, these oils may synergize to keep your immune system functioning optimally, even under challenging conditions. Our staff use this topically on lymph nodes and (with a carrier) around the nostrils when everyone seems to be coming down with something. This is also our favorite diffuser blend for the workplace, as it has a wonderful aroma too!
