Are you looking for safe + natural solutions to help you prevent (and quickly recover from) colds & flu? Are you curious about using essential oils to support your family’s health and well-being?
You’re in the right place!
How to Protect Your Family from Colds and Flu Using Essential Oils is a comprehensive and in-depth video class on which essential oils you can use to prevent or recover from respiratory infections, WHY the oils work, and HOW to use them.
There are a lot of essential oils that offer respiratory support, but in this class we'll study a select group of 5 versatile "powerhouse oils" – and the chemical components in each that make them so effective. You'll learn how to identify oils with respiratory supportive components, and which oils make excellent substitutions, so you can make adjustments to your blends when needed.
This class covers how to safely use these powerful oils for children (the recipes use different oils and amounts for kids than for adults) and of course, specific recipes you can make immediately to prevent your family from getting sick – or to reduce their symptoms if they do come down with something. It's a crash course in keeping your family healthy!

Andrea's teaching method is so straightforward and easy. I love listening to her teach and share her passion. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Aromatherapy but she also taps in to those with even more knowledge so you don't feel that it is only 'her' word. I appreciate that she supports the small businesses and distilleries around the world. Thanks Andrea!!
I bought this video class and I am so glad. I feel like I've gleaned so much valuable information—not just what to do for symptoms (which is nice too), but tools to figure out for myself how to use oils for different situations.
What an excellent class! I learned more in three hours than in the last year of searching the web. Thank you for showing us how to look up substitutions for the different essential oils. I was wondering how I could go about finding substitutions. I was debating as to whether I wanted to spend the money for this course and finally came to the decision that it was about the same cost as one doctor's co-pay so I decided to bite the bullet and splurge. I AM SO GLAD THAT I DID. Thank you! Andrea, you're an excellent teacher. You're so clear and easy to understand. You certainly have a gift.
This was an awesome video/webinar class. It was well worth the money and easy to understand—packed full of information. I have already used some of the blends for family members and really like them. Thanks!!!
