How It Works

We asked our instagram followers to share tips on maintaining a healthy immune system while traveling. Here's a roundup of the responses so far: 


@jamie.ferrell: I swear by elderberry gummies and keep them in my purse at all times. I use @zarbees brand; they're delicious!


@singonkristi: Oil of Oregano pills every day!!!


@justine.low30: Colloidal Silver spray for travel and Oil of Oregano dropper on hand in case symptoms of a cold or the flu arise unexpectedly!!


@writehite: A week before I fly, I dump vitamin c into my system and sleep a full 7-8 hours. Also, On Guard oil from doterra goes on me daily.


@lisaaaaladay: @gaiaherbs ASAP immune supreme💥 also an anti-inflammatory diet leading up to travel


@orlykuperard: Make an elderberry syrup, keep essential oils handy, could take a vit C and zinc supplement, but most importantly eat well and rest well 🙏🏼


@balancewithvalerie: Tap around the top of your collarbone before, during, and after to help your lymphatic system drain often.


@amybairjohnson: I wear medical masks on flights, also. I don’t care what it looks like. I don’t want to catch what others have! I’m able to find them in the drug store, such as CVS or Walgreens. 😷


@make_a_healthy_change: I take Shaklee’s Vitalized Immunity. It’s packed with as much Vitamin C as 16 oranges without the sugar as well as Zinc and a proprietary blend of herbs- echinacea, forsythia, chaste tree and ginger. It works to keep my immune system strong every time.


@marcereyes55: Young living Thieves essential oil❤️❤️


@llumiere_sante_bienetre_: Lemon juice with warm water then add a tea spoon of honey twice a day ! It's very powerful 👍


@sahelui: @llumiere_sante_bienetre_ I add some ginger in as well, it's an awesome combination 😊👍


@joyfulmouvement: Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend, cough drops, or hand sanitizer! They are amazing! You can check them out on my site:


@essentially_loving_oils: I use dōTERRA ‘s OnGuard! I haven’t even had a sniffle in 3 years! Highly recommend ❤️


@teamoilsinspirelife: DoTERRA’s Onguard oil is amazing for boosting your immune system especially when traveling!


@gogophotoblog: No sugar , coffee, cow dairy, alcohol


@gogophotoblog: @jarsforoil keep it simple just use eucalyptus oil


@manzaschu: Elderberry is great, and bee propolis for a sore throat. Lots of tea (especially green). And vitamin C. And most importantly, rest and sleep if possible.
