Published studies covering a number of the oils used in this blend have demonstrated their anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties including those against common influenza virus variants and members of the coronavidea (corona virus) family. They may prove effective against the Sars-CoV-2 virus responsible for Covid 19 but they have not been tested specifically against it. Covid 19 and pneumonia are potentially serious ailments and we urge you to seek and follow the advice of your health care practitioners if you suspect you suffer from either of these conditions, regardless of whether or not our blend (or other treatment) is providing relief. Our blend has been helpful for family and friends suffering colds and flu but has not been subject to formal clinical evaluation.
As with all remedies, please give your body adequate care and rest and pay attention to published practices for general hygiene, hand washing, social distancing etc. Consult with your medical practitioner if you suffer persistent cough, high fever and/or shortness of breath especially if you are in at-risk categories.
We work hard to make our blends both effective and safe to use. As with all topical products, a few people may at some point experience some skin irritation, particularly after prolonged use. If use of this blend causes skin irritation, take a break from direct use on the skin and use a diffuser, paper tissue or other inhalation method instead to help with the cold and flu symptoms.
