It is very common to go to the Dr and to be sent home because you or your child has a virus and the Dr says there is nothing they can do to help you. The reason why they aren’t able to help you is because bacteria lives on the outside of the cell wall and viruses live on the inside. Most antibiotics can’t penetrate the cell wall so they aren’t able to help with the virus. Essential oils however can penetrate the cell wall so they can help your body fight the virus.
There are several different oils that are high in anti-viral properties such as Clove, Eucalyptus, Cinnamon, Melalueca, and Oregano. doTERRA’s On Guard blend contains Clove, Eucalyptus, and Cinnamon as well as other beneficial oils. It has been lab tested to decrease symptoms of the flu virus. Source
In the doTERRA world we like to come up with our own blends that help with different ailments. One recipe that has been passed around is for the Flu Bomb. Everyone seems to have their own variation of this blend. This is ours…

- 2 Drops doTERRA Melaleuca Essential Oil
- 2 Drops doTERRA Oregano Essential Oil
- 2 Drops doTERRA On Guard Essential Oil

You can put them all in a capsule and take internally or you can increase the recipe and put in a roll-on bottle with fractionated coconut oil and apply to the bottom of the feet…which is a great way to apply on children.
