Last winter was our healthiest cold/flu season yet. Guess how many times we got sick? …ZERO! This home was completely free of GI stomach bugs and respiratory flu bugs! Usually in the fall, my husband and I will start boosting our immune system by taking Vitamin C, Vitamin D and/or Cod Liver Oil supplements.

I don’t know how many times many years ago before we were mostly organic, where we had the stomach flu and could always correlate it back to going out to eat somewhere. It’s miserable and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone. Handwashing is so important in preventing germs and illnesses. This season, we’ve also added diffusing Thieves oil to our immune defense (plus it smells like Christmas every day here). We diffuse this in our home daily and apply it on the bottoms of our feet before we do any grocery shopping or when we are out and about around germy people.
