The weather is getting colder, and as a result we are spending much more time indoors. Shifts in temperatures, changes of humidity, kids in school, and many other factors increase our risk of catching a cold, getting the flu, or otherwise getting sick. Whether you are trying to prevent illness, or looking for relief when you do, Jordan Essentials can help!
Granted, supportive essential oils and botanicals are no substitute for going to the doctor. When in doubt, contact your healthcare provider. Especially as parents, we want a few things on hand to help our loved ones feel better on their journey to wellness. All suggestions offered here may help, yet Jordan Essentials does not claim to cure any illness and the following tips are intended as supportive information only.
An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure
To avoid getting sick in the first place, Jordan Essentials has your back! Follow these simple tips to support the immune system and reduce the risk of being exposed to nasty bacteria and germs that can make you sick:
Join the Resistance! Jordan Essentials’ Resistance Blend contains an age-old formulation of powerful essential oils originally created to ward off the plague… Literally. For more information about the history of this blend, check out our article by clicking here. JE Resistance contains essentials oils that are antioxidant, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and antifungal. Diffuse in a room for 30 minutes to purify the air and support the immune system. Use JE Resistance Spray to sanitize hands, door handles, bathrooms, and other surfaces. Apply JE Resistance Roll-On to the bottoms of the feet, along the spine, and on lymph areas to boost the body’s natural immune system.*
Use JE Foaming Hand Soap and wash hands regularly. Place a JE Foaming Hand Soap next to every sink in the house. With so many wonderful scents, especially the holiday limited edition varieties, JE Foaming Hand Soaps can wash those nasty germs away while tantalizing the senses with delightful aromas.
Apply JE Immune Roll-On or Spray daily and diffuse as needed. Jordan Essentials’ Immune Blend combines the amazing benefits of Frankincense, Tea Tree, Rosemary, Lemon, Eucalyptus, and a touch of Sweet Orange. Boost your immune system with the support of the antioxidants, vitamin C, and other constituents found in this delightful blend.
Use Jordan Essentials Magnesium Lotion daily. Magnesium is an important element needed for over 300 functions in the body, including the immune system. Applying topical magnesium daily reduces the risk of experiencing symptoms associated with magnesium deficiency.
Other suggestions for prevention include drinking plenty of fresh water, eating healthy, exercise, and getting enough rest.
The JE Home Medicine Cabinet
Even with the best laid efforts to prevent getting sick, sometimes we still will feel a bit under the weather. So when that happens, here are a few tips to get back on your feet quickly.
JE Resistance and JE Immune are both excellent blends to use after you get sick, too. In some cases, the use of these blends can reduce the time it takes to start feeling better, on average. This is because the constituents in the essential oils penetrate into the bloodstream and into the cells, may support immune response, may improve white and red blood cells counts, and often combat antibodies. For best results, apply to the bottoms of the feet and along the spine. Pure essential oils can be diffused for 30 minute intervals, which is especially beneficial before bedtime.
For chest congestion, diffuse Jordan Essentials Eucalyptus Essential Oil for 30 minutes and breathe deeply. You can also combine 2-3 drops of Jordan Essentials Eucalyptus Essential Oil with Magnesium Dead Sea Salt Soak then dissolve in a warm bath.
For achy muscles, apply Jordan Essentials Magnesium Lotion, Jordan Essentials’ Magnesium Stick, Jordan Essentials Magnesium Spray, or Helio Skin Superfood Lotion.
For dry cracked hands and feet, apply Jordan Essentials Skin Relief Lotion or Shea Body Butter.
For fever, chill Hydrating Body Spritzer, Magnesium Spray, or JE Resistance Spray in the refrigerator and spray the body as needed. Peppermint is especially cooling to the body, so you can also apply Peppermint Magnesium Lotion, Peppermint Foot Cream, or combine 1-2 drops Jordan Essentials Peppermint Essential Oil to your favorite JE lotion. To cool the body, apply to the bottoms of the feet, along the spine, and on the back of the neck.
For headache or migraine, diffuse Jordan Essentials Headache blend and apply Headache Roll-On to temples, back of the neck, and pressure points of pain. Jordan Essentials Magnesium Lotion, Magnesium Stick, and Magnesium Spray can also be helpful.
For fungal infections, athlete’s foot, or wounds, spritz with Jordan Essentials Tea Tree Essential Oil Spray. Tea Tree is an effective treatment for any infections or fungus.
