Boosting one’s health in preparation for the severe winter cold months is a natural survival instinct from the earliest origins of humanity. Healthy practices such as taking vitamin and herbal supplements, indoor exercise like Yoga, and wearing warm clothing like gloves and hats, can protect health during the onslaught of the chillier temperatures. 

Essential Oils, like those found in our DoTerra Company, are the darlings of alternative medicine. Essential Oils often out-perform antibiotics and medications in clinical tests as a curative for well-known types of bacterial and fungal –related illnesses. Quality Essential Oils like DoTerra Essential Oils, are the perfect companion to keep by your side during the winter season when it feels as though our health is being challenged to its fullest.  

Essential Oils: Selecting Your Winter Resources
Winter Skin Treatment Many people are afraid to put oil on their skin because they associate its moisturizing and lubricious texture with breakouts and acne. On the contrary, essential oils are used very successfully in the treatment of skin blemishes. Despite the sensation of dryness and tightness that sometimes affects the facial skin on cold winter days, a combination of bacteria, excess sebum, and dead cells may be accumulating within the hair follicles of the skin. Essential Oils like Tea Tree and Lavender reduce inflammation and heal acne with their antifungal and anti-bacterial properties. Combine these Essential Oils with a clinically proven antibacterial property like Jojoba Oil, a very effective and widely used carrier oil that creates the perfect curative for your skin. 

Staving Off Illness  Oregano Oil and Peppermint Essential Oils were utilized by the ancient Egyptians and are highly recommended by the physicians of alternative medicine. Oregano is a powerful immunity booster, as well as an antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic, and antiviral treatment.  Many experts advise the use of Oregano Essential Oil first and foremost during the winter months because of its many powerful benefits for protecting health. Peppermint Oil is a very popular curative known even to those who do not normally subscribe to natural treatments, often just drinking it as a tea. Use Peppermint oil as a mood booster during cold, gloomy weather, to reduce appetite, and prevent overeating. Peppermint also helps to alleviate anxiety, depression, and fatigue. If somehow you should fall ill, use Peppermint Oil around the sinus area to drain the cavities and relieve sinus pressure, while stimulating recovery within the immune system.
