It seems that every February in our family, one of us comes down with a stomach virus and it runs through the family. Well, since we have started using the Young Living Essential Oils, I have been fortunate that it has missed me every time.

When I find out that either my husband or my children have the virus, I start to treat with Oregano oil. I use it on the bottom of their feet mixed with a small amount of coconut oil or olive oil. I also make them peppermint tea. I then take the oregano by mouth. It is such a hot oil, that it should be mixed with oil before placing in the mouth, or you could put the oil in a clear capsule. I also have used the Thieves oil directly under the tongue to help protect from getting the virus.

I am never without my oregano or Thieves oil and thanks to the powerful qualities of these oils, my family doesn't experience near the amount of misery that accompanies a stomach virus.

We also give the girls a few drops of lemon with their breakfast a few days a week during the winter months. It seems to really build their immune system against these types of viruses.
