How to Use Essential Oils to Boost Immunity

what are essential oils?

Essential oils are chemically-active aromatic compounds extracted from plants that have been used for centuries in native rituals to ward off illness and fatigue. In fact, the use of the oils of Frankincense and Myrrh date back over 5,000 years.

These precious oils were used as incense, insect repellent, perfume, salves for wounds and sores and they were also key ingredients in the embalming process of the ancient Babylonians and Egyptians.

Today, among the popularly touted aromatherapy and fragrance benefits of essential oils, many have been suggested to contain naturally occurring anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties.
