True prevention is not waiting for bad things to happen, it's preventing things from happening in the first place."

With cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the rise again and health experts warning of a second wave, let me just recap on how we can use essential oils to boost immunity and support our respiratory system.

Based on research and years of experience with essential oils, I have come up with some basic protocols for treating and preventing a viral infection. To understand the logic of my ways, I’ll first explain what is known about viruses and the mechanisms of how essential oils work to disrupt or destroy the virus.

Healing touch is the most natural of instincts. We massage the back of our neck when we feel tense. We massage our toe when we stab it.

Essential oils enhance massage and the more regularly we use them the more effective they become. There’s no need for elaborate application systems or complicated massage techniques.

The coronavirus outbreak caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus2 (SARS-CoV-2) happened in Wuhan, Hubei, China in December 2019. It was transmitted from humans to humans so quickly that it has become the pandemic responsible for the current  global crisis. In May 2020, as was reported by the WHO, there have been approximately 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-10 and more than 30 thousand deaths worldwide.

Since there is also no effective pharmacologic treatment against COVID-19, determining the drug target requires an understanding of the viral lifecycle. 

 While many clinical trials aimed at discovering a potential effective COVID-19 drug are ongoing, using herbal medicines with well-known antiviral activity might be a complementary SARS-CoV-2 preventive therapy.
