Since beginning my journey with Young Living oils about 4 years ago, I've had the flu only once. Last year I finally caught it. While others were being hit hard and spending time ( and money; lots of money) in the ER/Dr.'s offices and battling it for WEEKS, I decided to only use the oils/supplements. My flu lasted 3 days. Let me tell you how I did it; perhaps it will work for you.
First, I have to say upfront that I give all the glory to God. Anytime I have an issue prayer is most definitely at the top of the list. I am convinced God gave us the oils and plants to use for healing, but I will not forget the Creator of those plants/oils.
I began to feel bad one day at work and it was coming on fast. I knew something wasn't "right". I got chills and could feel it in my stomach. I went home and the first thing I did was put Di-Gize and Peppermint on my stomach. I also drank 2 oz of NingXia Red. I did this several times that first day and never got the "tummy issues" others were getting with the flu. I also never vomited.
I then applied the following "antibiotic" oils to my feet and took them in a capsule as well; Thieves, Oregano, and Frankincense and I went to sleep. I awoke with a fever, but waited until my fever was over 102 to also add Peppermint to my feet. I ran fever for less than 24 hours. I applied the same oils every two hours and drank 2 oz of NingXia Red each day. My fever broke in the night and I continued the other oils for the rest of the day and much of the following day every two hours. I also drank a lot liquids and drank vegetable broth and had popsicles. It was later the second full day I was feeling better and was able to eat vegetable soup and saltines. Again, continuing the oils, but still having no fever, tummy issues and vomiting. I was gaining strength and energy back as well.
Upon the third day I had no symptoms of the flu whatsoever, but having battled the flu before I knew for certain that was what I had. I did continue the oils every 4 hours that day just to be sure I "knocked it out." The next day all was back to normal. :-) Praise God! I am approximating that the whole ordeal cost less than $15 in oils and NingXia Red and I missed 3 days of work.

A couple of years ago I came across this post instructing how to make homemade deodorant. I tried it and love the results. It works better than anything I have ever purchased over the counter and save a lot of money! The part is it's made with Young Living oil. How can that be bad? :-)
I stress again that their are differences in Essential Oils. I can say that Young Living works for me and I KNOW it does not have any "extras" added that might irritate my skin. Give it a try and see if it works for you. :-) As always, contact me if you have any questions or want to know more about Young Living. It truly is the best oil.
1/4 C baking soda
1/4 C cornstarch ( or arrowroot)
2-3 Tbl. of coconut oil ( the solid, cooking kind)
10-15 drops of Young Living oil. ( I like Thieves, but Lavender would be great too. Any of them that are antibacterial as well as smells great.) :-)
Mix together well and keep in a glass jar with a lid. If you are in a warm climate the coconut oil may separate. Just put the deo. in the fridge for a bit. Cold climate? Run your hands under warm/hot water for a few minutes, dry you hand and then rub the deo. to get out of the container. Your hands will heat the deo. enough to get it creamy enough to get out of the jar.

Lord have mercy.
I knew it wasn't allergies when the Lavender and Peppermint weren't really working. They always work on my allergies very quickly. But, this just did not want to go away; or let me breathe through my nose... at ALL!
I knew I was going to have to do something different. After checking with other Young Living users, and www.ylsearch.com we decided to give RC a try on the sinuses and ingest a capsule with Oregano and Lemon.
WORKED LIKE A CHARM. I began this protocol on Sunday evening and by Wednesday I was completely well. :-) Praise the LORD. :-)
If you find yourself with a head cold/sinus infection, I strongly encourage you to give this protocol a try.

A Little History
D. Gary Young, Founder and President of Young Living, Rediscovers Ancient Longevity Secrets
D. Gary Young's life mission is to search the world for the secrets of long life, health, energy, and vitality and bring those secrets to the masses. In 1993, Gary was introduced by Weber State University Botany Professor Cyrus McKell to Chinese scientist Dr. Songqiao Chao.
Dr. Chao told Gary about a simple, delicious-tasting berry used for thousands of years in China for its amazing health benefits. Dr. Chao said that the people who consumed these berries on a regular basis lived remarkably healthy lives of more than one hundred years. Intrigued, Gary traveled to the Ningxia region of China located in the Inner Mongolian Plateau to learn more about the tiny red fruit known as the Ningxia wolfberry.
D. Gary Young First to Import Wolfberries into US in Commercial Quantities
Initial attempts to import wolfberry powder into the US resulted in quarantine by US Customs, which saw the powder as an unknown substance. With persistence and the help of Dr. Chao's daughter, Sue, Gary was able—through Young Living Essential Oils—to successfully import Ningxia wolfberries into the United States commercially for the first time in 1996.
Young Living researchers then went to work creating the synergistic NingXia Red infusion enjoyed worldwide today. NingXia Red uses only pure, whole Ningxia wolfberries from the Ningxia province of China.
The Ningxia variety of Lycium barbarum, as reported by the Xinhaua News Agency, “is far superior to ordinary Chinese wolfberry in both tonic effects and economic results.” Of the eighty different species of wolfberries worldwide, the Lycium barbarum variety of Ningxia is believed to have the highest levels of immune-stimulating polysaccharides.* Due to its superior quality, some medical studies done on the wolfberry have specified the use of the Ningxia wolfberry. And the Ningxia wolfberry won three gold prizes in the China Agricultural Fair and a gold prize in the Malaysia International Food Fair.
Ningxia's Perfect Geography for Wolfberries
The Huang He (Yellow) River originates in the Himalayan Mountains and flows through the Ningxia Province. This river creates a unique, mineral-rich, super fertile silt-water flood plain found nowhere else on earth. This unique geography produces incomparable wolfberries. Called “China's herbal medicine valley,” the area meets all of the stringent rules for China's prestigious “Green Certificate.”
There is so much wonderful information I can't possibly post it all, so let me just refer to this site about NingXa Red.
If you are interested in trying NingXa Red, or would like more information, please feel free to contact me. :-)
