Treating the Flu with Essential Oils!

Treating the Flu with essential oils:

We have been receiving a great number of phone calls regarding the
 swine flu in the past few weeks. This informational sheet has been
put together in an attempt to answer questions and concerns that
you may have about the swine flu, or any of the other flu strains
affecting us each season.

The swine flu normally infects only swine but has recently shown the
ability to infect humans. Research is now showing that not only is
the swine flu able to infect humans, it is also being spread by
human-to-human contact, not just contact with swine.

The number one thing that you need to remember when dealing with
swine flu, or any other illness, is to TREAT FOR THE SYMPTOMS that
you are experiencing at the present time. The name of the illness or
the strain of bacteria/virus is less important to herbal and
homeopathic remedies than you might think.

Many of the same things that you would use to treat the regular flu
will be what you need for the swine flu as well. Keep in mind that
you are probably looking at both viral and bacterial infections
occurring at the same time. Viral infections almost always open the
body up for overgrowth or infestation of one unfriendly bacteria or

Recommended Essential Oils

LeDeliverance is strongly anti-viral as well as

Daily use of this oil can boost the immune system and keep it
functioning at optimum levels. An inhaler with LeDeliverance
should be used frequently throughout the day to “refresh” the
body’s defenses.
LeEndo Relief helps the lymphatic system continue to drain
and to keep toxins and dying bacteria from over-whelming
tissues and cells. This oil is also very helpful during the
recovery stages of serious illness because it is designed to
strengthen and re-balance the endocrine system as a whole.
LeMariah is a wonderful support for the entire respiratory
system. It promotes the rebuilding of the lungs while helping
to eliminate the virus and bacteria from the respiratory
LeStefanie is another respiratory blend that may be helpful in
ridding the body of any anti-biotic resistant bacteria strains.
LeBreezey and LeAspire and always good to support and open
the respiratory system. Aspire is especially valuable to calm
coughs, and Breezy helps "kill" critters and provides anti-viral,
anti-bacterial properties, as well as helping to rebuild and
support lung tissue.

LeRevitalize and/or LeLife Force are both good oils for
improving energy levels during the illness and for helping the
body re-gain strength and remove residual bacteria and toxins.
LeInside Out would be a must if there is any intestinal
discomfort or diarrhea.
Suggested Homeopathics

(Use ONLY when symptoms are present)

**because Homeopathics do NOT follow the
same "rules" as essential oils and herbs,
you MUST take the time to become
educated in this area before administering
homeopathics! The 2 Homeopathic Books
published by Butterfly Express are
excellent places to start your learning, and are
strongly recommended for beginners**
