Immune Boosting Essential Oils
There are a number of essential oils which have really earned themselves a reputation for being immune boosting essential oils. And, in terms of how we view medical efficacy, in the 21st century, these immune boosting essential oils really deserve their reputation. But… is the way we view medical efficacy in the 21st century the ideal approach? Or, is it fundamentally flawed with an emphasis on getting us to part with our hard earned cash to buy products to do the things our bodies used to do for us?
When left alone, our bodies are beautiful self-healing systems designed to work in synergy with nature… and that includes bacteria, viruses, fungus and parasites… What we are not designed to do is cope with synthetic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, synthetic hormones, antibiotics etc etc…
I explore this idea in the first part of this article, but I also list all of the best immune boosting essential oils in the second part of the article. I also list some of the best immune boosting herbs, providing links to some important further reading. I hope you find it all very helpful.
The 21st century could very easily be called the Age Of Autoimmunity. But what does autoimmunity mean?
Well, if you type ‘autoimmunity’ into Google this is the kind of explanation you will receive…
What is an autoimmune disease? An autoimmune disease is a condition in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. The immune system normally guards against germs like bacteria and viruses. When it senses these foreign invaders, it sends out an army of fighter cells to attack them.
But, this explanation is as convenient as it is misleading. It’s an explanation designed to illustrate how fallible and untrustworthy our bodies are and to emphasise how much we need modern medicine to protect us. Clearly, according to this point of view, we present such a danger we even need protecting from ourselves.
I would venture, however, this is utter nonsense. Autoimmunity is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the Western world. The number of people diagnosed with an autoimmune condition in the US is approaching 10% whilst by contrast this is on 2% in Japan.
Lifestyle, environmental pollution, a reliance on synthetic chemicals in farming and a reliance on synthetic chemicals in modern medicine etc all create a toxic burden within our bodies which we are failing to cope with.
Our bodies do not recognise synthetic substances and it makes them malfunction.
I have written at length about this in Inflammation Is The Cause Of All Illness, explaining what we can do to reduce it.
Stress Undermines Our Immunity
Stress is the biggest cause of ill-health in the 21st century, so anything we can do to reduce it will take a huge burden off our immune system. I list a lot of protocols for reducing stress in Stress Quick Fix .
However, stress is not just caused by the increasingly complex array of mental and emotional stressors we must face in the 21st century. This century, more than any other, presents us with a seemingly endless amount of toxic environmental stressors which undermine our immunity in every conceivable way.
Heavy metals are an ever increasing problem, not least because viruses and other infections hide behind them. One of the main reasons people don’t get well, even with the appropriate treatment, is because of the levels of heavy metals in their body.
Heavy metals like Aluminium and Mercury found in vaccines and amalgam fillings etc, are strongly implicated in neurodegenerative diseases. But there’s a lesser known problem which is seriously undermining our immune system. The metals in our bodies act like an antenna for wireless technologies, which then exert devastating effects on our immune system. Wireless tech is thought to account for a 40% reduction in immunity.
Synthetic hormones, aka Xenoestrogens, are everywhere in our environment and they are also wreaking havoc with our health and undermining our immunity. They are also making us fat and depressed…
There’s another accompanying article in this series entitled The Ultimate Cause Of All Illness.
I recommend you read all of these articles with a view to minimising the stressors in your life, thereby reducing your reliance on costly products, most of which do more harm than good.
Immune Boosting Essential Oils
Because stress is the biggest cause of ill-health in the world today anything we can do to reduce it will take a huge burden off our immune system.
As I explain in Using Thieves Oil 2020 For Hormone & EMF Detox when the body is in the stress response our immune system shuts down. In Using Thieves Oil 2020 I explain how to apply the immune boosting essential oils in Thieves Oil 2020 in the form of a quick neck massage which will not only de-stress us so our immune systems start working again, but also kills any infections within a major part of our nervous systems.
It also helps detox the body of the harm done by EMF (wireless tech) and Xenoestrogens.

Essential Oils For Bacterial Infections
Reducing our exposure to bad bacteria reduces the burden on our immune system. Immune boosting essential oils discriminate between the good and bad bacteria, only destroying the bad bacteria whilst preserving the good bacteria.
80% of our immune system is made up of the good bacteria which lives on our skin and within out digestive system. Learn more about it in Gut Health.
There are many essential oils which are antibacterial and antimicrobial. These can be used for personal care as well as for household cleaning and laundry.

Essential Oils For Fungal Infections
There are a good number of really effective anti-fungal essential oils.
Many of us have chronic yeast infections which place a burden on our immune system thus compromising our ability to fend off other infections.
I have been repeatedly told by long suffering individuals that prescription ointments and pills don’t work when it comes to toenail fungus. However, they have found relief through successfully using Oregano & Nigella Sativa Preparation.
*People suffering from long-term yeast infections often have intestinal parasites.
Essential Oils For Parasitic Infections
There are a number of essential oils that can be used to treat intestinal parasites. However, I advocate using Food Grade Nigella Sativa with Oregano Essential Oil. Read more about it here: Organic Nigella Sativa Oil
Immune Boosting Herbs
There are many immune boosting herbs, but here’s a list of some of the most effective and popular herbal medicines.
As stress is the biggest cause of ill-health anything we can do to reduce it will take a huge burden off our immune system. Adaptogenic herbs, like Ashwagandha, Holy Basil, Siberian Ginseng and Rhodiola are excellent for regulating the stress response within our bodies, and have been a lifesaver for many people with anxiety disorders etc. You can learn more about Adaptogenic herbs by following the link.
