Don’t let the winter season bring you down. Check out my favorite natural winter wellness tips to stay healthy with essential oils.

13 Essential Oils for Natural Winter Wellness

1. Sore Throat

Add a few drops of Thieves to a small cup of filtered water and gargle for a few minutes. You can also make an all-natural throat spray. Add a few drops of Thieves and filtered water to a small spray bottle and use as needed.

2. Congestion

Apply a few drops of Thieves or RC and a carrier oil (such as jojoba, sweet almond, coconut or apricot kernel oil – try a 50/50 mix with essential and carrier oils) in hands and inhale for a few seconds. Then apply to the to the chest and back.

3. Cough

Mix 1-2 drops of Thieves with a teaspoon of raw or organic honey. Take a few times a day as needed.

4. Runny Nose

Apply 1-2 drops of Thieves and Lavender to a handkerchief or cloth napkin. Inhale the scent and wipe as needed. The Thieves oil boost immunity, while the Lavender soothes sore or raw skin from excessive wiping (this was a lifesaver for my toddler son who was red and raw from excessive nose wiping – the redness cleared up in 2 days).

5. Sinus Issues 

Mix 1-2 drops of Peppermint and Lavender with a carrier oil (50/50) to a handkerchief or cloth napkin. Inhale the scent for a few minutes. Apply the oil mix to the temples and back of the neck.

6. Body Aches

Take an Epsom salt bath with 2-3 drops each of Thieves, Peppermint and Lavender essential oils. The Epsom salt helps to soothe body aches and pains, while the essentials oils build immunity and soothe tired muscles.

7. Ear Aches

Add 2 drops of Thieves and Purification essential oils with a carrier oil (50/50) and apply to a cotton swab. Apply around the opening of the ear (NOT in the ear). Or add 2 drops of Thieves essential oil to a cotton ball and place over the ear (NOT in the ear) overnight. You may need to affix surgical tape to keep the cotton ball in place.

8. Stomach Aches

Mix a few drops of DiGize or Peppermint essential oils and a carrier oil and rub on the tummy.

9. Boost Immunity

Add a few drops of Thieves and Peppermint essential oils to a diffuser. This will help to kill airborne bacteria without harsh chemicals.

10. Sleeplessness

Add 1-2 drops of Lavender to a pillow (or for kids add to a favorite blanket or stuffed animal) to encourage a healthy night’s sleep.

11. Rehydration

Replenish fluids naturally with this homemade sports drink made with essential oils. It will help to balance electrolytes and rehydrate the body.

12. Nourish the Body

Make these cold-busting gummy snacks to add essential nutrients back into the body, including amino acids, vitamins and minerals. This recipe is a hit with kids.

13. Disinfect

Kill germs naturally with Thieves Household Cleaner. It’s highly concentrated, and it works well on cleaning pretty much anything in the home. Spray toys, furniture, countertops, bathrooms and more. Diffuse Thieves essential oil to purify the air.
