A more natural alternative to the flu shot:
3 drops doTERRA Oregano
5 drops doTERRA On Guard
5 drops doTERRA Melaleuca
5 drops doTERRA Lemon
If you feel like you are starting to come down with a cold or a flu, put these oils in an empty gel capsule and take internally. Repeat every 3-4 hours until you feel better again.
I will also use these in the bath, with coconut oil and Epsom salts
Flu bomb recipe 2
Combine the following ingredients in a capsule. Take every 4 hours (except while sleeping).
- 3 drops peppermint

This combination worked effectively, and she experienced an instant uplift after taking the capsules, likely due to the peppermint.
