Essential Oils That Boost Your Immune System
It’s no secret that COVID-19 has deeply infected the United States, and the world. It has become important more so now than ever to put your health first and give your immune system its best chance at combatting viral infection.
Properties and Benefits of Essential Oils:
Essential oils are biologically active, meaning they have specific cellular targets that can help to stimulate cell function. Essential oils are liquid soluble and can pass through tissues and membranes of a cell. They have 6 million molecules in one drop that can penetrate into a cell and boost the immune system by promoting cell function.
One example is eucalyptus oil. In one study, eucalyptus oil was proven to stimulate cell response in reactive oxygen species, responsible for cell signaling.1 Below, our team at Dentistry for Health New York have included our Daily Recipe for Health that uses essential oils and natural ingredients to boost your immune system.
