Fall is officially upon us and it is gorgeous! I love all of the magnificent colors! We haven’t been going out much lately, so we really enjoyed our ride into town today, gawking at all of the pretty colors. Good thing there wasn’t much traffic!
Unfortunately, flu season is fast approaching too. There are already confirmed cases. We need to do everything we can to boost our immunity now….before we get sick!
FYI: Before I forget…you might want to follow Haphazard Homemaker. I’m hosting a Give-Away for the month of November. I’ll share the details on the 1st.
Today’s post includes a new printable of immunity blends that I made for you, which might help you or a family member NOT get sick. These blends include a few new essential oils, plus some oils that I told you about a few weeks ago.
You might have noticed that a lot of these essential oils have the same benefits. That’s a good thing. We may not particularly care for some scents, so we have options for other oils that provide the same benefits. We also need to change up the oils we use every few days, or they could cease to be effective.
Essential Oils for Immunity Support
- Thrive: Improves immunity, helps cleanse your body, energizes the mind and is invigorating.
- Geranium: Anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, fungicidal and stimulating.
- Ginger: Anti-oxidant, antiseptic, bactericidal, expectorant and stimulating.
- Nutmeg: Analgesic, antioxidant, antiseptic, stimulating and helps with digestion.
As I mentioned previously, I am NOT a medical professional. I am only sharing my personal experiences based on my research.
Other tips to help boost your immunity include eating plenty of immune-boosting foods to your meals. Foods such as berries, broccoli, eggs, leafy greens, oatmeal, salmon, seeds, sweet potatoes and yogurt. There are lots more, but these will get you started.
And be diligent about hand washing and not touching your face, maintain a minimum of 3-4′ feet distance from others who are sneezing and coughing, use an antibacterial cleaner to wipe all hard surfaces and get enough sleep.

Check out my post “Flu Shot in a Bottle“. It’s an essential oil roller bottle blend, which can also be used for immunity support. I carry mine with me all the time.
I’ve added a few new oils to the previous list, so be sure to check out the post I wrote a few weeks ago, with a lot of information about the benefits of several essential oils to use for colds and flu, and how to diffuse essential oils properly.
And I love this diffuser that you can use with or without the changing color lights, and it has an intermittent mist option. It also has an automatic low-water shutoff.
Stay Healthy, My Friends!
