Respiratory Virus Recipe





When your little one starts showing signs of a respiratory virus (e.g. a runny nose or squeaky voice), it is time to hit your child with specific essential oils. We've put together some instructions that we've tested and are great to use as soon as your child starts showing symptoms.

Safety

Before beginning please read our Guidelines about seeking medical attention as it could save your child's life. 

Ingredients

Note: Following the recipe is a list of where to buy the ingredients.                                             

  • 3-5 drops peppermint CTPG
  • 3 drops lemon CTPG
  • 1-3 drops oregano CTPG or pre-diluted oregano CTPG in a rollerbottle 
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) fractionated coconut oil or organic virgin coconut oil
  • Diffuser

For the essential oils, we recommend doTERRA as they are the purest in the world and are Health Canada approved as Natural Health Products (NHP). Fractionated coconut oil and a diffuser can be purchased along with your oils. Organic virgin coconut oil can be purchased from any store such as Well.ca.

Directions

Aromatic

  • Fill up the diffuser with water to the fill mark.
  • Add 3-5 drops of peppermint.
  • Add 3 drops of lemon.
  • Start the diffuser.

Topical

We recommend administering pre-diluted oregano to the bottoms of your child's feet.

Rollerbottle: 

  • Swipe on the bottoms of your baby's feet.

Fractionated Coconut Oil:

  • Mix 10 ml (2 tsp) fractionated coconut oil with 1 drop oregano either in a jar or a rollerbottle.
  • Swipe on the bottoms of your baby's feet.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil:

  • Melt 10 ml (2 tsp) organic virgin coconut oil in a saucepan (do not boil).
  • Remove from stove and check that coconut oil is warm (not hot).
  • Transfer to a jar or rollerbottle.
  • Add 1 drop oregano and stir/shake.
  • Rub a tiny amount on the bottoms of your baby's feet.   

Note: Organic virgin coconut oil will solidify at 24oC. Consequently, for rollerbottles, you may need to run it under warm water before each use.
