Updated: Nov 4, 2021
As winter approaches, the days get shorter and colder, and with less sunshine comes less exercise outdoors, so now is a good time to start thinking about your immune system.
While diet, sleep, and lifestyle make a big difference when it comes to keeping your immune system healthy, essential oils are a great addition to supporting your overall wellness naturally. With the aid of plants in the form of essential oils, you can help strengthen your immune system.
SOiL’s organic range of essential oils help relieve cold and flu like symptoms.
SOiL Organic’s Immunity Essential Oil Blend has been expertly formulated by an aromatherapist and contains certified organic Lemongrass, Benzoin, Tea Tree and Thyme essential oils to guard against illness.
