25 Essential Oil Recipes for Immune Support

I love essential oils and how they support my family’s healthy immune function!

We use immune-boosting essential oil blends in many ways:

  • Of course, we diffuse!  I LOVE the smell of essential oils and their all-natural therapeutic benefits.
  • In rooms where I’m not running a diffuser (like a bathroom) we use an essential oil room spray.
  • We even use immune-support essential oils in our countertop and bathroom cleaners.
  • And we use roller bottles to put essential oils (diluted with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil) on the bottoms of our feet.  We use a 5% dilution (about 10 drops of essential oil in a 10 ml bottle) for me and my husband and a 2% dilution (about 4 drops of essential oil in 10 ml of carrier oil) for our 13 year old daughter.


I like variety, so I change up the essential oil blends that we use for immune support.

Sometimes I want a spicy blend, other times I want a woodsy scent or a floral scent or a uplifting citrus blend.  I love that it’s so easy to make a new blend.  I can get a completely new aroma but still get the same great immune boosting support!

  • spicy blend includes rosemary, clove, eucalyptus, cinnamon, and wild orange essential oils
  • woodsy blend includes arborvitae, cardamom, and cassia essential oils
  • floral blend includes lavender, geranium, rosemary, and melaleuca essential oils
  • citrus blend includes invigorating blend, grapefruit, and protective blend of essential oils
  • traditional blend includes protective blend, lemon, oregano, melaleuca, and frankincense essential oils


I’m excited to share with you theses 25 recipes for using essential oils for the support of a healthy immune system!!  In fact, I was so excited about this article that I put all the recipes into what I hope is a handy and easy to use chart (see below).  All 25 recipes are on one printable page that you can put in your essential oil recipe journal, pin to your fridge, share  at vendor fairs, give to new team members, etc.

    When it says invigorating blend and protective blend…is that a combination of different EOs or is a blend that you buy that is already blended? If so, what company carries it. Thanks.

      Hi, Kim.
      Invigorating blend and protective blend are generic names for types of pre-mixed essential oil blends sold by various essential oil brands. Protective blend refers to blends like On Guard from doTERRA, Thieves from Young Living, and Germ Fighter from Plant Therapy. Invigorating blend refers to blends like Citrus Bliss from doTERRA, Citrus Fresh from Young Living, and Citrus Burst from Plant Therapy.

    Do you add anything to the EO’s to dilute them for the room sprays? Or is it just straight EO’s in a spray bottle?

    • Sarah Lewis February 16, 2017 at 6:33 pm - Reply

      I use 8 oz of distilled (or boiled & cooled filtered water) and 2 oz of witch hazel along with the essential oils. The essential oils won’t stay mixed in the water and witch hazel, so be sure to shake well before each use.
