Use at least one oil from this column These oils are great but they are high in Citral which can irritate the skin and the lining of the nose.  People with asthma need to use the oils in this column in smaller quantities and with caution.

These have amazing antiviral properties.

Great in vaporisers, inhalers and hand sanitiser but not for the bath

These are great anti viral AND immune support.

Use at least 2 oils from this column

These are air purifiers.  Use at least TWO

I have included Fragonia and Kunzea for the people who have recently taken the Aromatic Kinesiology course.  If you have them use them.

You must include Tea Tree in the mix.

If you have a vulnerable person in the house or someone who gets infected use Red Thyme

These are great oils but if you don’t have any of them its ok not to include.

It’s just me giving you more choice
