A well-functioning immune system is the basis for our health and performance. The body’s own defences protect our body from harmful microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi. A unbalanced diet, stimulants and environmental toxins, but also stress and mental conflicts weaken our immune system. A well-functioning body’s own defence system is crucial for health, because without the immune system every disease germ, every virus could unfold its destructive effect undisturbed. To build up a sustainable immune system is a permanent task!

Essential oils to support the immune system
Essential oils can help to build up, strengthen and keep intact the body’s own defences! They support the immune system in general by keeping unwanted microorganisms in check without destroying the vital (“good”) bacteria and fungi. This is called a “probiotic” effect, in contrast to antibiotics, which kill all bacteria indiscriminately. In addition, they each have very specific properties, such as promoting blood circulation, which improves the oxygen supply to the organism. Other oils help to increase the white blood cells, the “body police”. Thus different conditions are created so that the body can defend itself better against its enemies.
Roman Chamomile is a strong anti-inflammatory and wound healing oil. It has a general stabilizing effect. In addition, it stimulates the production of leukocytes (leukocytes = white blood cells, are a part of the immune system and perform special tasks in the defense against pathogens) and can help to support immune system functions.
Naturally pure, genuine melissa oil is ideal for the long-term treatment of a weak immune system and can help allergy sufferers to less extreme reactions. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it also brings relief, especially in winter, when colds keep us in check. It also calms tension and nerves and promotes feelings of relaxation.
Meanwhile it is well known – pure natural tea tree oil is considered a “broad-spectrum antibiotic from nature”! Enormously effective against bacteria, viruses and fungi, also anti-inflammatory, analgesic and decongestive on the venous system. In general it has a very stimulating effect on the immune system! Affirmation according to Samel & Krähmer “I am robust. I am immune to any attacks on body and soul”.

It has an anti-inflammatory, analgesic, regulating effect on the immune system and promotes ejaculation, so it is also recommended for inhalation in bronchitis.

The fruity oil is an allround talent: it regulates the immune system, has a particularly good effect on room disinfection, has a very strong antibacterial effect (streptococci), is slightly antiviral and also calms the nerves and promotes concentration. In addition, it has very specific properties related to the immune system: Burning and decomposition metabolism is strengthened by lemon oil, the blood is better supplied with oxygen, free oxygen-radicals are bound and transported away faster. Leukocytes are activated, regeneration and division processes of erythrocytes are increased, their formation is stimulated.
