With the cold and damp weather that has been in abundance this winter, now is the perfect time to boost your body’s natural immune defense with the power of essential oils. Basic Earth Essentials has developed Protectra as a natural way to cleanse the environment of microbes while lending your immune system the necessary support in fighting infection and eliminating the potential threat of infection. Protectra contains a powerful synergistic combination of essential oils that have been used extensively throughout millennia for their anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

Unlike the four thieves that used plant extracts to avoid bubonic plague in order to rob the sick of their valuables, Protectra comes to the rescue by helping the body to boost its line of defense in order to avoid becoming defenseless; a truly valuable weapon in the science of health.

The best way to use Protectra is by diffusing the essential oil blend throughout the environment. The aromatics are not only very pleasing, they help to cleanse the air of impurities and microbes that have the potential to cause sickness, such as the common cold and influenza. Add a few drops of Protectra to distilled water and clean surfaces around the home. You can even use Protectra in your shower or bath, allowing the warm water and steam to enhance its aromatics. Mist a little Protectra around the office and in the car as an added wellness benefit.

We have added additional essential oils which help to combat sinus issues, chest congestion and help alleviate pressure associate with head and sinus conditions.

Some of the essential oils in Protectra include:

  • Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum)

Cinnamon helps to eliminate microbial activity as well as relieve symptoms associated with the common cold, sore throat, congestion and influenza.

  • Clove bud (Eugenia carophyllata)

Clove bud is effective against bacterial and viral infections, including MRSA, and helps to boost the immune system. Clove helps to improve the respiratory system, especially under stress from sickness.

  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)

Regular use of rosemary keeps the immune system at optimal condition and is considered one of the best defenses against free radicals in the body.

  • Lemon (Citrus limonum)

Lemon is anti-bacterial and highly anti-viral due to its limonene content. It is also ffective in reducing bronchial inflammation and chest congestion.

  • Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia)

Lavender relaxes the mind and body, and actively helps the body fight against infections such as Diplococcus pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, Beta-hemolytic strep, to name a few.

  • Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus)

Eucalyptus is effective in treating several respiratory conditions which include cough, sore throat, nasal congestion, sinusitis, bronchitis and helps to dry the sinuses due to overproduction of mucous.

Next time you are feeling a bit under the weather, grab your bottle of Protectra and naturally “Boost your defense!” Your body will be thankful you did.
