Are you tired of being told you “just have a bug and there’s nothing you can do but let it run its course”? I AM!! While modern medicine has very little recourse when it comes to the nasties that float around every year, those of us with a Home Health Arsenal full of immune-boosting and system-supporting essential oil blends know we can support our bodies WELL in the waiting.

You can learn to fight well, too!

The past two weeks, we’ve talked about how to reduce our toxic load by DIYing our own cleaning supplies (the only 3 you need to clean your ENTIRE house!) and making our own body products with essential oils. Now, we turn our toxin-slashing, essential-oil-loving attention to our home health remedies!Essential Oil Blends are a great way to support your body's immune system. Try these 5 Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!

Essential oil blends have changed the face of our family’s medicine cabinet — and our health in general! While I still try to avoid “the nasties” as much as possible during those “sharing” times of the year (especially since chemo wrecked my immune system even more than it was before 😒), if we do happen to bring something home, I now know how to support our bodies well and help us get over it faster!


Before we dive into the recipes…

For those of you who have been waiting on pins and needles since I announced that the Herb & Essential Oil Super Bundle was coming, I’m happy to report it is now LIVE and on sale for only $47!

If you’re new to Essential Oils, this bundle has EVERYTHING you need to get started and grow in your Essential Oil knowledge.

If you’ve used EOs for a while now, there’s a TON of great resources for you to further your knowledge and skill with EOs, too!

The Herb & Essential Oil Super Bundle includes 26 awesome resources, including 16 eBooks & printables, plus *10* eCourses — for less than $50! I spent several weeks when the bundle first came out vetting all the resources for you, and making sure I’m recommending a phenomenal product for your Essential Oil edification. 😃 Only the best for my readers!

I’ve spent most of my time going through the eCourses, and I’m learning a TON! I’ve been using Essential Oils 3 years, but there is still so much to learn!

My biggest recommendation from the bundle:

I’m actually going through Dr. Eric Z’s Essential Oils for Abundant Living eCourse right now — which is included in the bundle, and typically retails for $97! — and it’s my number one recommendation for you at this point. This course alone is worth WAY more than the price of the bundle, and it takes you through a multitude of practical, ready-to-use tips, the latest in essential oil research, using EOs for supporting gut health, and several other topics — all in a non-brand-specific, super informational format.

It’s SO GOOD!

Even if you only used this one course, the bundle would be beyond worth it.

But, you don’t get JUST this ONE course for over 90% off retail. You get *10* eCourses for over 90% off! Plus all the eBooks and printables. A.MAZING.

If you’re ready to dive into a deeper understanding of Essential Oils — or get your feet wet for the very first time — GO GRAB THIS BUNDLE! 


Alright, Herb & Essential Oil Super Bundle endorsement over. For now. 😜 I want to make sure you get some GREAT Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!

Here are the Essential Oil Blends included in my adult-strength (20-25% dilution) Home Health Arsenal:

1) Bug Buster Essential Oil Blend

This blend is my go-to whenever we inevitably pick up “the nasties” from the grocery store, church, or the playground. I keep this blend in a recycled 15mL EO bottle with a roller top insert, because when I need it, I NEED it.

I apply this one to the bottoms of my feet every 20-30 minutes at the first sign that my immune system is fighting something and needs extra support. Then, I back off to every hour, then every 2-3 hours, and finally a few times a day as I start feeling my body responding and getting back to an even keel.

For a 15mL roller bottle:

  • 20 drops OnGuard essential oil blend
  • 12 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 20 drops Melaleuca essential oil
  • 12 drops Oregano essential oil
  • Top off with Fractionated Coconut Oil (aka: FCO)Essential Oil Blends are a great way to support your body's immune system. Try these 5 Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!

2) Seasonal Savior Essential Oil Blend

When spring is in the air, so is all the junk that restricts my breathing, makes my eyes itch, and just makes me miserable all around! When this season and all its “seasonal issues” strike, I strike back with my Seasonal Savior Blend! It’s a pretty basic recipe that’s been around forever, but I add an “enhancer” oil to mine to give my immune system even MORE support at this lovely time of year.

I use it mostly on the back of my neck, in a ‘V’ from my ears to the center of my collar bone, and CAREFULLY around my eye sockets. ** DO NOT PUT ESSENTIAL OILS IN YOUR EYES OR WHERE THEY CAN RUN INTO YOUR EYES!! **

This blend is also FABULOUS to diffuse (sans FCO) when “seasonal threats” are high. It’s been going nearly 24/7 in our diffusers lately!

For a 10mL roller bottle:

  • 15 drops Lavender essential oil
  • 15 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 15 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops Frankincense essential oil
  • Top off with FCOEssential Oil Blends are a great way to support your body's immune system. Try these 5 Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!

3) Chest Bump Essential Oil Blend

Along with those seasonal issues, I typically need extra respiratory support, as well. Often just Breathe essential oil blend is enough, but when I REALLY need to open things up, this blend is my favorite.

Just rub all over the chest — and AVOID SUN EXPOSURE for 12 hours after application! (Bergamot is a photosensitive citrus oil. Ask me how I know. 😳)

I also keep a bottle of this blend (sans FCO) on hand to use 3-4 drops in my diffuser. Talk about “promoting feelings of free and easy breathing!”

For a 10 mL roller bottle:

  • 20 drops Breathe essential oil blend
  • 20 drops Bergamot essential oil
  • 10 drops Frankincense essential oil
  • Top off with FCOEssential Oil Blends are a great way to support your body's immune system. Try these 5 Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!

4) Sinus Sucker-Punch Essential Oil Blend

DoTERRA’s DigestZen essential oil blend holds a special place in my heart. Not only is it fabulous to have on hand for digestive support and easing tummy issues, it’s also AWESOME for respiratory and sinus support. I actually use it WAY more for respiratory issues than I do for tummy issues!

I cannot tell you how long I thought my sinuses were just out to get me before I discovered this tip! I spent SO MUCH time and money with my doctors trying to figure out what was going on, and now, it’s just a non-issue. My body is properly supported and is thanking me for using a more natural approach!

For a 10mL roller bottle:

  • 40 drops DigestZen essential oil blend
  • Top off with FCOEssential Oil Blends are a great way to support your body's immune system. Try these 5 Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!

5) Sanity Saver Essential Oil Blend

If you’ve heard me talk about my introduction to essential oils, you’ve heard me mention my “two moves in two months without bloodshed” blend. This is it! While not necessarily related to “the nasties” we tend to bring home, it definitely helps me stay calm and able to deal with all our health issues much more easily.

It truly is my sanity saver. Whenever I start feeling stressed or overwhelmed or like my brain is just NOT going to turn off at bedtime, this is the blend I reach for. I keep it in a little keyring holder on my purse for ready access when I’m not the one driving. (My husband appreciates a co-pilot who isn’t yelling at him about his driving. 😜 I’m not allowed to go on road trips without this blend anymore!)

I also keep it on my nightstand, so I can roll it on the back of my neck, over my heart, and on the insides of each wrist right before I lay down at night. I’ve had random seasons of trouble sleeping throughout this whole cancer journey, and this blend has helped me to breathe, rest, relax, and drift off easily.

I generally only use a 10% dilution since I use it so frequently, but it’s PLENTY potent!

For a 10mL roller bottle:

  • 10 drops Balance essential oil blend
  • 10 drops Serenity essential oil blend
  • Top off with FCOEssential Oil Blends are a great way to support your body's immune system. Try these 5 Essential Oil Blends for your Home Health Arsenal!
