Strengthen Your Immune System with Essential Oils!
It’s important to find ways to make supporting our immune system part of our daily routine. Using essential oils for immune support is a great way to do just that! Not only can essential oils support your immune system, but they can also help promote the health of the various systems in the body, keeping your family healthy and your immune system strong.
I will share what essential oils can make supporting your immune system a breeze and how you can make it a part of your daily routine! So, let’s dive in and learn how to strengthen your body’s first line of defense.
Essential Oils for Immune Support
1. dōTERRA Breathe®
If you’re looking for a natural way to help your family through the seasonal shifts, dōTERRA Breathe essential oil blend is the perfect choice!
This special blend of Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravensara, and Laurel Leaf creates an airy and fresh mint aroma that’s known to maintain feelings of clear airways.
I use this blend both aromatically and topically to help minimize the effects of seasonal threats. To keep your home smelling fresh, diffuse three to four drops of dōTERRA Breathe essential oil blend.
For extra protection, you can also apply one to two drops to the palms of your hands and inhale directly or rub it on chest and feet – just remember to dilute with Fractionated Coconut Oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
2. Oregano Touch
Do you ever find yourself needing something quick and convenient to help keep your family healthy? dōTERRA’s Oregano Touch might just be the thing for you!
It delivers the purifying benefits of Oregano essential oil which contains two powerful and potent chemical components: Carvacol and thymol, which have strong purifying properties. This blend comes in a convenient roll-on applicator, diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin.
I love applying this to bottoms of my feet to deliver the benefits of Oregano essential oil.
I also rub this on skin or nails for its immune supportive effects. If I’m in a hurry, I’ll simply roll it on my palm and rub my hands together for a cleansing effect. It’s a great way to keep germs at bay!
You could add one to two drops to your water, juice, or tea. This can help support your immune health! Or you use it to help soothe any sore or tired muscles after a long day by diluting one to two drops with a carrier oil for a good massage.
I personally diffuse three to four drops of Copaiba Oil at bedtime. Its woody aroma helps me get that well-deserved restful sleep while supporting my healthy respiratory function.

4. dōTERRA On Guard®
This blend can be used to boost the body’s natural antioxidants, which can help to protect against environmental and seasonal threats when ingested.
To use dōTERRA On Guard internally, I recommend placing two to three drops of the oil into a Veggie capsule or dilute one drop into four fluid ounces of liquid of your choice and drink!
In addition to its immune-supporting properties, On Guard also offers cleansing and purifying benefits. A couple of drops of this essential oil in a water-filled spray bottle can work as an effective all-purpose surface cleaner that is both natural and non-toxic. This oil’s unique aroma also acts as a natural deodorizer.

5. dōTERRA On Guard®+ Softgels
These oils are well-known for their ability to support and strengthen the immune system.
When you’re feeling like your immune system needs a boost, simply take one or more of these softgels to promote healthy immune function.
These softgels are conveniently encapsulated in vegetarian-friendly capsules, making it easy to use them while you’re on the go. It’s my mess-free solution that helps me maintain a healthy immune system, especially when I’m on vacation!
6. dōTERRA On Guard® Sanitizing Mist
The formula is also infused with a natural apple extract, which adds a moisturizing element to the mist. It leaves your hands feeling soft and smooth, with an invigorating citrus aroma. What’s not to love, right?
I find this sanitizer mist incredibly convenient! Especially when I’m with my kids and soap and water are not readily available. I simply apply one to two mists directly onto my hands and then rub them together until they’re dry. It’s quick, easy, and gives me peace of mind knowing that I’m keeping my hands clean and protected.
7. PB Assist®+
A healthy intestinal tract is essential for optimal digestive and immune function, so it makes sense to end this list with a supplement that can help you operate at your best!
This supplement contains a blend of prebiotics and probiotics that promote the growth of good bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. What sets it apart is its unique double-layer vegetable capsule, which protects the probiotics from stomach acid, ensuring safe delivery of digestive and immune benefits to your system.
The ingredients in PB Assist+ help maintain a healthy balance in the gut. Bifidobacterium lactis, B. bifidum, and B. longum are among the strains included in this supplement. These help promote healthy digestive and immune function in the lower intestine.
Regardless of whether you have a healthy diet or not, I recommend taking three veggie capsules of PB Assist+ each day with food. This will help support optimal metabolism and enhance the absorption of nutrients from your food. It’s a simple way to promote overall wellness and support your body’s natural functions!
