Now’s the time for us all to start talking about Anti-Viral Essential Oils!

It’s winter, so it’s also cold and flu season. Colds and flu, (aka influenza), are viral infections. And, because colds and flu are viral they present us with more of an issue than bacterial infections… because, sadly, modern medicine has no way of treating viruses… But, thankfully, Mother Nature can!

This is why everyone is so concerned about Corona Virus. But, hopefully this article will bring a much needed sense of hope and calm to many people.

Essential Oils Have It All Covered

Essential Oils are variously anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic

Anti-Viral Essential Oils

The Anti-Viral Essential Oils listed in this article are a great defence against viral infections, including Covid-19, and using them is an effective way of mitigating infection… but there are other things we can do… Read Corona Virus Prevention & Cures for more information after reading this article.

Please share this article far and wide… If others don’t get Corona Virus – we are a lot less likely of getting it too.

It is particularly important to share this hope-inducing article, because the mainstream press are telling us, rather hopelessly, the only thing we can do is wait for a vaccine, and, of course, this is causing panic, which will only serve to lower immunity.

IMPORTANT :: I am getting too many repeated requests for the same information around Corona Virus, Thieves Oil 2020 and anti-viral essential oils for me to answer individually… so I have created an FAQ page. If you have a question please ask it in the comments on the FAQ page by following this link :: Anti-Virus Essential Oils FAQ’s

Anti-Viral Essential Oils Work

Mainstream news, and the tabloids are printing stories saying that Essential Oils cannot protect us against viruses. This is profoundly irresponsible! And will potentially prove to be criminally negligent…?

The following quote is from a government website. Sadly, we are being misinformed:

EOs from two different suppliers) were active against the fourteen Gram‐positive and ‐negative bacteria strains tested, including some antibiotic‐resistant strains. Minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) ranged from 0.01% to 3% v/v with minimal bactericidal concentrations from <0.01% to 6.00% v/v; (2) a blend of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Daucus carota, Syzygium aromaticum, Origanum vulgare EOs was antifungal to the six Candida strains tested, with MICs ranging from 0.01% to 0.05% v/v with minimal fungicidal concentrations from 0.02% to 0.05% v/v. Blend AB1 was also effective against H1N1 and HSV1 viruses. With this dual activity, against H1N1 and against S. aureus and S. pneumoniaenotably, AB1 may be interesting to treat influenza and postinfluenza bacterial pneumonia infections. These blends could be very useful in clinical practice to combat common infections including those caused by microorganisms resistant to antimicrobial drugs.

There are, of course, many viruses… and there’s little financial impetus to test… but here’s a slew of different research which is revealing all sorts of anti-viral activity within essential oils.

Who Is Most At Risk?

Those over 50 years of age, and those who smoke or who drink heavily, or have sugar and grain addictions are much more susceptible to viral infection, and are more likely to contract a fatal dose of the Covid-19 virus. This is because Corona Virus specifically targets the lungs, and can replicate faster in an acid environment within the body… hence why alcohol, sugar and grains are an issue.

Wild As The Wind offer an anti-viral essential oil blend called Thieves Oil 2020.

Anti-Viral Essential Oils UK

There are a good number of anti-viral essential oils available in the UK and the rest of the world, all of which are extremely effective, and, mercifully, very affordable.

The real beauty of the best anti-viral essential oils is they are heavily anti-bacterial as well as some of them being nervines. However, unlike antibiotics, antibacterial and anti-viral essential oils only kill the bad bacteria without harming the vitally important good bacteria which helps us digest our food and forms 80% of our immune system.

Bacteria and some viruses all contribute to our gut health, which is what forms 80% of immune system. So, to understand the importance of good bacteria and good viruses, and why the health of our digestion is the foundation of our overall health, please read the article, Gut Health.

IMPORTANT :: Not all essential oils are created equal. Anywhere between 75% and 98% of all essential oils are adulterated, This means they are stripped of their therapeutic benefits and are often rendered toxic. Only buy essential oils you can trust. In Buy Essential Oils UK I highlight what to avoid. ***ALL Wild As The Wind Essential Oils are of therapeutic quality.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender Essential Oil is a very potent and diverse healer with anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. It is also a nevine, with the potential to help protect the Central Nervous System.

Lavender Essential Oil is one of the very few anti-viral essential oils suitable for babies, toddlers and children. It must be diluted to very low percentages. Refer to Essential Oils Safety For Babies & Children

Corona Virus is now being shown to affect the Central Nervous System… :: A Beijing Hospital Confirms Covid-19 Attacks Central Nervous System

Other nervine essential oils include:

Chamomile Essential Oil :: Is both sedative, as well as a nervine, which also alleviates insomnia.

Tea Tree Anti-Viral Essential Oil

So, which are the best anti-viral essential oils?

Perhaps the most commonly known anti-viral essential oil is Tea Tree Essential Oil. This essential oil, which is also known as Ti Tree Essential Oil or Melaleuca Essential Oil, is an absolute powerhouse of healing, but is gentle enough to be used on young children.

Tea Tree Essential Oil is one of the very few anti-viral essential oils suitable for babies, toddlers and children. It must be diluted to very low percentages. Refer to Essential Oils SafetyFor Babies & Children

Tea Tree Essential Oil is not only an anti-viral essential oil. It is also antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. These are the main four ways in which we become infected, and so Tea Tree Essential Oil is a great panacea for pretty much all of the most apparent health threats that exist today.

Unfortunately, the creation of Super Bugs and Super Viruses, means that in extreme cases, the power of Tea Tree can be overwhelmed.

In those instances, it’s time to bring in the ‘big guns’!

Oregano Anti-Viral Essential Oil

Oregano Essential Oil is, without doubt the most potent anti-viral essential oil available, but like Tea Tree Essential Oil, Oregano Essential Oil is also antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic, but in a more potent form.

And, Oregano Essential Oil contains a good amount of Phenols, so it is brilliant for detoxing hormone receptor sites of toxic synthetic hormones which are present in modern fabrics, home furnishings and plastics, which seriously compromise our health. Our hormones are chemical messengers which maintain the fine balance of our bodily functions, keeping everything in balance. Any challenge to our hormones will ensure a deterioration in our overall health. For more information read Hormone Disrupting Substances & Cures

Cinnamon Anti-Viral Essential Oil

The gorgeous smelling Cinnamon Essential Oil is another aromatherapy oil which is a potent anti-viral essential oil that is also antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.

Cinnamon Essential Oil is also immune boosting, and so is a great preventative as well as a great cure for most of the common infections we’re likely to contract.

Clove Anti-Viral Essential Oil

Another gorgeous smelling aromatherapy oil, Clove Essential Oil is another potent anti-viral essential oil that is also antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.

Clove Essential Oil is also homeostasis supporting aromatherapy oil, and so, just like Cinnamon Essential Oil, it is a great preventative as well as a great cure for most of the common infections we’re likely to contract.

Rosemary Anti-Viral Essential Oil

In the world of aromatherapy, the combining of aromatherapy oils makes these healing oils more potent. The combining of Clove Essential Oil with Rosemary Essential Oil is a very good example of this.

Rosemary Aromatherapy Oil is another anti-viral essential oil with antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial actions.

Thyme Anti-Viral Essential Oil

Thyme Essential Oil is yet another anti-viral essential oil with antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial actions, as well as being a great immune-boosting tonic!

Thyme Aromatherapy Essential Oil comes in different chemotypes. Thyme White Essential Oil is more antioxidant but can irritate the skin in some cases. Thyme Red Essential Oil or Sweet Thyme Essential Oil is less irritating to the skin.

Thyme Aromatherapy Oil is also vitally important for hormone balance… as is Clary Sage Aromatherapy Oil.

Thieves Oil 2020

Several of the above aromatherapy oils are in a Wild As The Wind essential oil blend known as Thieves Oil 2020.

Clary Sage Essential Oil

Clary Sage Aromatherapy Oil is not an anti-viral, but it is vital for hormonal health and it blends brilliantly with most of the above oils. It is also a nervine, which protects the nervous system from the adverse effects of viral infections.

It is profoundly antibacterial, but it’s also a natural sedative and analgesic, so it’s great for when you have the flu and need a good nights sleep to help you recover.

Getting enough sleep is THE best way to stay well and heal when we get unwell!

Other Important Aromatherapy Oils

Frankincense Aromatherapy Oil

Frankincense Essential Oil is an amazingly healing oil, which is great for pain and as an immuno-stimulant! Prevention is better than cure!

Research has shown Frankincense Essential Oils calms cytokine storms (viral symptoms) and increases activity of white blood cells.

Sweet Orange Aromatherapy Oil

Sweet Orange Essential Oil is uplifting, antibacterial, and a great tonic. It can be taken internally to recondition the digestive track, and it is profoundly antibacterial. Sweet Orange Aromatherapy Oil is a great one for using during illness, but will help support our immunity all year round.

Sweet Orange Essential Oil can be used continuously for long periods… but, it is always good to take a break from everything every now and then… Everything will ultimately prove toxic with over use… it’s why we vary our diets, and change shampoo brands etc…

Hemp Essential Oil

Hemp Essential Oil plays a vitally important role in ensuring optimal immunity. The cannabinoids in Hemp Essential Oil modulate macrophages which clear out pathogens and toxins.

Because we have cannabinoid receptors in every part of our body, taking Hemp Essential Oil, with it’s full spectrum cannabinoids is one of the most fortifying things for our immune system there is.

Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil

Copaiba Balsam Essential Oil is a great alternative to Hemp Essential Oil. However, it only attaches to CB2 receptors and not CB1 receptors. Hemp Essential Oil attaches to both.

However, Copaiba Balsam Aromatherapy Oil is about a third of the price of Hemp Aromatherapy Oil.

Copaiba also works to suppress inflammatory cytokines and so will ease viral symptoms.

Cistus Essential Oil

Cistus, or Rock Rose, is extremely antiviral. It also supports the respiratory system by ridding it of excess mucus and blockages. Cistus Essential Oil can treat colds, coughs, bronchitis, flu and asthma.

The reason this incredibly important essential oil is at the bottom of the list when it should be at the top is because it is even more expensive than Hemp Essential Oil.

But, out of all of the essential oils in this list for viral infection and respiratory support, this is the one I would choose for me.

Buy Essential OilsLearn What’s really Going On With Viruses

Viruses are actually not alive… This is why most of the advice we are being given is bogus.

This doesn’t mean they can’t make us ill. Read this article to find out more and then come back here for some really important herbal and dietary supplements we can take to prevent infection and seeing off Corona virus if we do get it.

Why Everything You Learned About Viruses is WRONG

Aromatherapy Oil Blends For Preventing Viral Infection

Obviously using aromatherapy oils, or essential oils, is an excellent way of preventing viral infection as well as treating the infections themselves, but it is important that we take a good break from Eugenol containing aromatherapy oils, and those containing Phenols, especially if we are taking them internally.

***This is the main reason why I advocate the use of pre-blended aromatherapy oils for those that are new to essential oils.

There’s two Wild As The Wind blended products which I would advise people to use as a great preventative as well as treatment for viral and bacterial infections, as well as immune-boosting support, and these are…

Thieves Oil 2020

Thieves Oil was the name given to grave robbers who operated during the time of the black death… a viral infection which almost certainly resulted in death.

The thieves who had direct contact with the virus on a daily basis thwarted infection owing to their secret blend of essential oils. It was only after they were caught and forced to reveal their recipe did anyone get to learn of this healing and preventative combination of aromatherapy oils.
