Immune Boost Blend

By Louisa Pini - Holistic & Clinical Aromatherapist -


It’s that time of the year when there are a lot of coughs and colds going around so here’s a very simple blend for your oil burner to help keep your space fresh and clean.

Essential oil blend for coughs and colds

In an oil burner

2 drops of Lemon 100% pure essential oil

2 drops of Rosemary 100% pure essential oil

1 drop of Tea Tree 100% pure essential oil

As a personal preference I like to use organic essential oils to guarantee the purest quality.


Lemon is well known for it’s immune boosting properties and research has showed that it actually helps to increase your white blood cell count [1]- the vital cells that help your body fight infection.



Rosemary has a powerful clearing effect on the sinuses.

Tea Tree

There is much evidence to show that Tea Tree has very powerful anti-viral and antibacterial properties.

This blend should help you feel alert as well as protect you from others’ coughs and sneezes!

Cautions: Rosemary is not suitable if you are pregnant so just use Lemon & Tea Tree in your blend.
