I use this in some form everyday for the past few years and since then I don't catch the colds or other bug that most people get.  When I do get something it lasts a few hours to a day and is very mild with only one or two symptoms.  
Astragalus is an amazing root that helps to support immune system function and protect the liver and heart.

This concoction isn’t just anti-inflammatory, it can also help with candida, digestion, nausea, and headaches. #turmeric

Because I love herbs I'll share this post about motherwort in the winter.  She is calming for tissues in an excited state, can be helpful in hyperthyroidism; supportive of the heart.

I use carefully selected essential oils in many of my products. I recommend rotating your exposure to a particular essential oil about every 6 weeks to decrease the chance of sensitization. Essential oils have potentially many benefits when used in the appropriate manner, many of these provided through the olfactory route. However, I do not advocate the use of essential oils undiluted or taken orally. These are very potent substances and a little can go a long way. There is just not enough data or history of taking them internally. I believe in being informed and having intent and attention when developing and making herbal and aromatherapeutic creations and that is what I bring to Thrive Massage and Bodywork products. For more info on the sensitization issue, check out this brief article.  http://aeota.org/sensitization/
