Essential Oils, Health and Wellness

Wellness Tea


Summer and colds should not go together. But unfortunately, colds just don’t come in the winter. Right now I am going through a series of different wellness regimens to get through a bad cold.  This cold has been going through our family one by one and since we have such a big family, it has the potential to circle back around to the first person. Fortunately, my littlest blessing has been spared (nursing pays off!!!). My sweet friend at Figuring It Out Mommy asked me for my wellness tea recipe, so I thought I would share it with you. This is one of my favorite tea blends for giving my wellness a boost.

Rooibus Tea

I discovered Rooibus tea over 10 years ago when my husband and I attended a wedding in S. Africa. It was before Rooibus tea hit the shelves in the U.S.A. I packed my suitcase with boxes of them and shared them with those close to me who were ill. When I read up on all the health benefits of Rooibus tea, I made sure I had some in stock in my cabinets at all times.

Rooibus tea is grown in S. Africa. It is caffeine free, high in antioxidants, helps relieve stress, contains calcium, fluoride and manganese for bone health, promotes cardiovascular health, helps with diabetes, promotes healthy skin and so much more (Learn more here and here).

Thieves Vitality Essential Oil

Theives vitality

Thieves essential oil is a popular blend known for supporting a healthy immune system. It contains a blend of oils including clove and cinnamon. Additionally, this blend includes Eucalyptus Radiata which may also help support a healthy respiratory system.

Lemon Vitality Essential Oil


Lemons are packed with health benefits including Vitamin C which is a good immune booster. Lemons also help to relieve respiratory and breathing problems and much more. I like to use Lemon essential oil in my wellness blend because Young Living makes a PURE, powerful, flavorful lemon essential oil that I absolutely LOVE. It takes 75 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of Young Living essential oil! WOW!

So when I need an immune boost, I get pumped with my wellness tea blend combining the health benefits of Rooibus tea, Thieves vitality essential oil blend and Lemon vitality essential oil. After all, mommy doesn’t have time to be sick!

This blend is also good to have daily to help maintain a healthy immune system. So if you happen to get sick, this may help your body’s natural ability to fight it off quicker! enJOY!

  1. Thanks for the insight on a natural way to get rid of colds. I am a natural remedy mom and I love my essential oils. My husband is actually the essential oil guru, even though I love them, but he experiments blending them all. I will have to save this for a future cold! I am so happy for you that you got to experience S. Africa. Must have been a great time!

Africa was wonderful. Thank you for sharing some time with me. Blessings.

    1. I am sorry you are not feeling well. I am still fighting this croup-type cold too. Fortunately, I have not been down and out…Praise God for natural wellness!!! I have been using RC for respiratory support which has been so awesome. You have RC in your kit. Dilute with 1-2 drops of carrier oil and rub on your chest, cheeks by your sinuses, forehead, and back of neck. Then cup over your mouth and nose and inhale. You can also diffuse 2 drops Theives and 2 drops Lemon in a 1/2 filled diffuser and diffuse at night while you sleep. You can diffuse RC as well. 4 drops in a 1/2 filled diffuser or 8 drops in a full diffuser and diffuse while you sleep. Apply Thieves to the bottom of your feet for immune support-4 drops carrier, 1 drop Thieves. Ok…enough blabbing…here is the answer to your question. I buy my Rooibus Tea from the Natural Grocer or The People’s Coop. I have tried other brands and this brand is the one I like. I hope you feel better! I thought about you when I posted this because I knew you were sick. Hope this helps you feel better. Take care my friend. Blessings.


  2. Ooooh, so funny I was thinking about you when you posted this! Ha! Great Minds, Great Minds! Thank you so much, I will have the hub pick the tea up at Feel Rite for me. How neat that you went to S. Africa!

    1. It was a nice trip. We went there for a wedding before our little blessings were born. It was such a beautiful place. I hope the tea works for you. Add the essential oils for an immune boost blend! I’ll be praying for you my friend. I will put you in my prayer journal. Spread the JOY! Blessings.
