It’s Fall again, and with the change in seasons comes a change in outdoor colors and temperatures. Oh, and the changing seasons also bring great sales! That’s right - Healing Solutions is announcing its new Autumn Sale! Shop reduced prices on many of our best-sellers. Stock up and stay healthy through the cold & flu season. You’ll find exciting offers and big savings on all of the cold & flu season essentials (pun intended!), including many of our best-sellers and even our Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser.

As we all know, the colder weather makes us more susceptible to bacteria and the many different cold & flu viruses out there. Not to mention all those friends, family, coworkers, and passersby who are sneezing and coughing all around you every day! Seasonal sickness can lead to a variety of symptoms that make it difficult to enjoy all the wonderful changes. Sneezing, congestion, watery eyes, sinus pain, aching muscles and joints, sore throat, and fatigue are no fun!

You can use essential oils to keep infectious germs away and speed the healing process if you do get sick. Here are just 5 ways essential oils can help you stave of sickness this season:

1. Home and Office Cleansing

The Health Shield Blend includes 5 important essential oils, each chosen to attack foreign invaders in a special way. The Health Shield Blend is made using Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus, Lemon, and Rosemary. This is a blend that dates back to ancient Egypt where grave robbers would use these oils to protect them from the bacteria of rotting bodies! Crazy, right?

Interestingly, the Health Shield Blend has a very seasonal aroma that helps to conjure positive memories and emotion while simultaneously working its protective magic. Use it in a spray to clean and freshen the air, diffuse it through one of our stylish ultrasonic diffusers, or dilute and apply it directly to the skin to put a barrier between you and those bad bugs.

2. Steam Baths

This is your go-to solution for easing the discomfort of sinus pressure and sinus irritation of any kind. Whether you decide to hop in the tub, take a steamy shower, or simply prepare a facial steam over a pot on the stove, Breathe Blend is your best choice for fast and effective relief. The vaporized action of Eucalyptus, Lemon, Peppermint, and Rosemary helps to alleviate any built-up pressure and symptoms associated with sinus problems including headaches and over-drying.

You can find the Breathe Blend in our Sinus Relief, Cough, and Cold Set - featured on our Autumn Sale. Simply add a few drops to your bath, shower, or facial steam and take long, slow, deep breaths IN through the nose and OUT through the mouth. You’ll love the healing aromas and the fast action of natural relief you experience from using essential oils to ease your seasonal discomfort.

3. Body Rubs

The highly popular Health Shield Blend (our version of Thieves Blend) and the ultra-soothing Deep Muscle Relief Blend are perfect for relieving muscle and joint pain while improving circulation to help speed the healing process. They also smell great!

You can find them both in our First Aid Essential Oil Set, also a Top-Selling option, and also featured on our Autumn Sale! Simply dilute and add a few drops to pulse points, or make a muscle rub by adding the essential oil blend to your favorite unscented lotion or carrier oil. Slowly massage over your problem areas to gently soothe common aches and pains.

4. Foot Detox

Epsom salts contain a chemical called magnesium sulfate that is known to soften skin, relax muscles, and pull toxins out of your body via the skin. You can add these detoxifying salts to your bath or you can simply soak your feet in a soothing foot bath. It’s a calming and comfortable way to remove uninvited pollutants from your body.

Choose from our Relax & Rejuvenate Set or the highly popular Best 6 Essential Oils Set to gather everything you need for a soothing, healing, detoxifying, and aromatic experience. Both sets are proudly included in our Autumn Sale.

5. Get Plenty of Rest

Your body knows how to heal - it just needs a little time in order to get back to its natural state of wellness. Give yourself plenty of fluids and find time to rest. You’ll need to get more sleep than usual and make sure that it is quality, uninterrupted sleep.

To get that extra-restful help your body so desperately needs this time of year, consider diffusing essential oils while you sleep. The Relax & Rejuvenate Set and our top-selling Home & Family Set make great options for this application. Both are featured in the Autumn Sale, too!


Because our essential oils are so highly concentrated, you may want to dilute them before use, especially during any kind of topical application (any time the oil comes into contact with your skin). You can do this by adding them to a carrier oil.

Some good options for carrier oils include coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil. No matter which carriers you choose, diluting your essential oils is a great way to ensure that you do not cause any harm or irritation to yourself while using them. It also helps them last longer!


Many companies out there that will claim to provide a high-quality therapeutic oil when in reality they are offering nothing more than a natural fragrance, a small percentage of volatile compounds, and more fillers than anything else.

Unlike those companies, Healing Solutions delivers only the purest essential oils. This means that you will always get a powerful, potent, and fragrant product. Each oil is tested and verified for ultimate purity. CLICK HERE to learn more about our rigorous testing procedures.


Whether you are new to essential oils or have been using them for years, there are so many different ways you can utilize them to help maintain optimal health this cold & flu season!

We even put together a list of 28 Ways to Use Your Ultimate Family Doctor Set, which you may find additionally helpful.
