Disclaimer: Please note that there is no cure for COVID-19. However, people are looking to essential oils in this time to support health. I will focus on oils that may boost immunity, manage symptoms & promote recovery. I will add references to research where I can as I like to see science underpin the efficacy of essential oil use. If you come across any further evidence of interest, please do let me know so I can review & add to my web page if I feel it is useful to people.

Please note, bottles may change depending on suppliers available at the time in these difficult times & you may even have my home labelled bottles so I can keep up with demand & keep prices reasonable.
