PROTECT & DISINFECT BLEND
There is a commonly told story behind a herbal recipe that has been used for centuries to help ward off sickness and germs. The usual story describes a group of thieves who robbed the dead or sick during a plague outbreak in Europe sometime between the 14th and 18th century, depending on which folklore is being told. When caught looting, it is said that the thieves offered to tell the judge the herbal recipe they had been using to avoid catching the disease themselves, with the hope of being given leniency. Whether or not the story is true, 'Four Thieves Vinegar' - or alternative versions of the recipe - has been used for centuries as medicine or a preventative treatment against disease and sickness. Various recipes include dried herbs such as Rosemary, Clove and Sage steeped in vinegar to release their oils and natural beneficial properties. Today we can use stronger and more effective pure essential oils, but the basis of the anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties remains the same as they did hundreds of years ago.
Our PROTECT & DISINFECT Blend contains pure essential oils of Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Dalmatian Sage, Oregano, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary, creating a synergistic blend of some of aromatherapy's most versatile oils. As the blend contains oils that are known to have both anti-bacterial / anti-viral properties, as well as those that can help remedy respiratory illnesses, the blend can be used for both protectection and treatment, as well as being an incredibly useful blend for cleaning and disinfecting your home.

SAFETY NOTE: As our Protect & Disinfect Blend contains Rosemary and Sage oils, it is best avoided if you have high blood pressure (Rosemary in particular promotes blood circulation). Sage is also best avoided by those suffering from Epilepsy.
Oregano is believed to be one of the most important antiseptic oils used in aromatherapy due to its high proportion of phenol, giving it strong antibacterial properties. It is also believed to be extremely beneficial in protecting from antiviral and antifungal activity, as well as being well respected for its antioxidant properties, which may help protect from damage to the body caused by free radicals.
Eucalyptus is one of the most valuable oils for treating respiratory problems such as bronchitis, colds, flu, asthma and coughs - the oil is known to influence the breathing process and increase the oxygen supply to the body's cells.
Rosemary is considered one of the best tonics for the central nervous system, strengthening mental clarity and awareness. Like Eucalyptus, Rosemary is a valuable oil for many respiratory problems, ranging from the common cold to asthma.
Clove Bud Oil is an excellent antiseptic and can be used for the prevention of viral diseases, while Cinnamon Bark Oil is commonly used as an inhalant for exhaustion, fainting, debility and weakness - as well as being a very strong antiseptic. Sage Oil (also known as Garden or Dalmatian Sage) is a known antifungal, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiseptic, antibacterial and disinfectant oil.
Together this beautiful blend of oils can be used in many ways:
* In a DIFFUSER to purify the air during illness or simply as a preventative measure
* In your CLEANING regime, such as a dozen drops added to your mop water or half a dozen to your clothes-washing liquid, or onto a cloth placed in with your dryer load
* In a STEAM INHALATION to help deal with the symptoms of respiratory illness
* General diffusing for IMMUNE SUPPORT (it can also be used to remove ODOURS)
* Diluted at 3% or less in a carrier oil or cream for MASSAGE over lungs, chest and back during respiratory illness (NOTE: always use less for children - and as this blend does contain Cinnamon Bark oil which can be sensitising, do a light patch test first to ensure there is no dermal sensitisation. If you experience any unusual effects, discontinue application to the skin immediately).

TO CREATE A SIMPLE MASSAGE OIL USING AN AQ PURE OIL BLEND:
Just purchase a 10ml bottle of AQ Essential Oil Blend, and a 100ml bottle of unscented AQ MASSAGE OIL (CLICK HERE). Add 3% Oil Blend into the 100ml bottle of massage oil - that's 3ml, or approx 60 drops. You will still have 7ml left in your bottle for future use, or in baths or other applications.
We also list many of our blends pre-made into Massage Oils to save having to mix your own (CLICK HERE).
As with all essential oils, AQ Oil Blends:
* must be diluted before application to skin
* must NEVER be administered internally
* must always be kept out of the reach of children.
* some must be avoided when pregnant - generally it is best to avoid using aromatherapy during pregnancy, especially during the first half.
