Our Immunity Pure Essential Oil / Roll On contains:

Clove bud oil 

Cloves take their name from the Latin word ‘clavus’, meaning nail, which is particularly fitting when this oil, distilled from flowering buds of the clove tree, nails the highest antioxidant score among herbs and spices. Long used in Ayuverda and traditional Chinese medicine, clove bud oil works wonders in boosting immunity. A potent agent against viral infections, it is famed for antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antiviral properties.

  • Eases headaches.
  • Relieves respiratory conditions, coughs and earache.
  • Soothes and cools a sore throat.

Did you know? Clove bud oil can also alleviate toothache.  

 

Cinnamon bark oil 

If history is a great teacher, this ancient ingredient scores top marks, staking its claim as one of the world’s oldest essential oils and natural antioxidants, referred to in the Bible, and Egyptian medical papyrus dating back to 1550 BC. It boasts antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. 

  • Helps clear chest colds and eases coughs.
  • Stimulates circulation.
  • Fights infection.

Did you know? Cinnamon bark oil repels other types of bugs too… insects and parasites.

 

Eucalyptus 

Often hailed as a cure-all, this powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic oil, extracted from Mother Nature’s ‘fever tree’, is said to aid everything from asthma to joint and muscle pain, decongestion, coughs, cold and flu, chickenpox, measles and more! Importantly, eucalyptus oil stimulates your immune system on a cellular level, helping to activate ‘phagocytes’; a type of while blood cell that destroys bacteria, foreign particles and dying cells to protect your body.

  • Helps reduce fever and fights infection.
  • Supports respiratory function by helping to clear airways and allowing more oxygen into the lungs.
  • Eases headaches by assisting relaxation of facial muscles.
  • Reduces inflammation of mucous membranes and relieves blocked sinuses.

  • Cools and clears the head, relieves coughs and alleviates headaches.
  • Supports respiratory function. 
  • Helps soothe nausea.

Lemon 

Purifying in every conceivable way – within your body and as a house cleaning product – lemon oil offers immune support by stimulating your body’s lymphatic system (which stores and circulates infection-fighting white blood cells). It contains antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties and is even said to protect the health of your liver. 

  • Alleviates a sore throat.
  • Clears nasal passages and supports respiratory function.
  • Relieves muscle spasms.

Did you know? Lemon absorbs bad odours, freshens air, purifies water, and can even whiten stained fingernails.

 

Rosemary 

Although best known as a culinary herb, rosemary also packs a powerful punch as an analgesic, antifungal, antibacterial, antiarthritic and antiseptic agent. Deliciously scented, it has been shown to decrease levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, while stimulating brain wave activity and supporting the part of your nervous system that controls organ function. Relieves coughs.

  • Eases headaches and migraines.
  • Supports respiratory function, relieves congestion and sinusitis.
  • Relieves muscle spasms and body aches.

Did you know? Rosemary can also promote hair growth.

 

Frankincense 

Dubbed ‘the King of oils’, Frankincense has been wisely revered since biblical times and is renowned for its broad anti-inflammatory properties. Indeed, science has uncovered a direct link between the oil’s ability to lower inflammation and boost your immune system. Frankincense also works at the cellular level, helping your body create more white blood cells to combat harmful pathogens. It is also antifungal, antiseptic, antimicrobial and a powerful antioxidant. 

  • Relieves pain, coughs, and eases congestion.
  • Helps fight infection.
  • Calms the nervous system.
