Congested airways, constant sniffles, achy muscles, and restless nights. These are just some of the symptoms of seasonal colds and the flu. Having any one of these symptoms is enough to disrupt your quality of life, and they often hang around for much longer than they are welcome. Protect yourself and your family from unwanted illness with the help of our Flu Time Essential Oil Blend! 

Keeping a strong immune system is key to avoiding illnesses like a cold or the flu. Flu Time combines natural germ-fighting essential oils to help support your body's natural immune response. Diffuse Flu Time at home or around the office to kill germs in the air and protect yourself from getting sick in the first place. 

If you do end up catching the sickness bug, Flu Time can help ease the severity of your symptoms and aid in your body's natural healing process. Flu Time's spicy and minty aroma is perfect for easing head tension, relieving congested airways, expelling trapped phlegm, soothing a sore throat, quieting a cough, and more. Simply diffuse Flu Time around you, or apply topically as needed. This powerful combination of Frankincense, Peppermint, Spearmint, Cinnamon Bark, Lime, Ginger, and Lavender essential oils can help you avoid being miserable while sick, and get you back to feeling yourself faster.

I LOVE this blend. I’ve been devoted to Immune Strength for a long time. I decided to add this to my wellness repertoire. The smell is lovely, I find that it’s very grounding and it lasts for quite a while.

Why isn't theives offered?
Danielle D on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This brand calls it "immune strength".
When it says 80% fractionated coconut oil, does that mean only 20% is essential oil?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 15 ml size is in a base of FCO. 80% FCO, 20% essential oil. We do have the 5 ml NEAT version of Flu Time that contains no carrier oil.

We dilute about half of our blends with FCO because they have luxury oils in them. This helps to keep the price affordable for our customers. We're now offering a 5 ml neat version for each of our 12 most popular 15 ml blends that are in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO).

The term "neat" means undiluted. Even though they are a little pricier, having a neat version of our blends will make it easier to dilute them correctly as well as diffuse with no worries. It also gives customers with coconut allergies a chance to the use our top blends. ​​

What carrier oil is best with immune strength?
D O on Feb 6, 2018
Flu Time (Bolster)
Flu Time (Bolster)
Immune Strength
Immune Strength
BEST ANSWER: Any kind of nut oil or seed oil will work as a carrier oil. We usually recommend starting with Fractionated Coconut Oil as it has no scent, does not stain fabrics, has an indefinite shelf life and remains a stable liquid consistency for easy blending.

Since this is already diluted, how to I formulate the right dilution to put on my 7yr. old son, for instance, into a 10ml Roll-on bottle? Any help to this not so savvy math mom is appreciated!
abuxton13 on Jun 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Great question! Even though this blend is in a base of FCO, we recommend that you always use additional carrier oil to protect the skin. For children over 2 years +, we would suggest blending 6 drops of the blend per 2 tsp of carrier oil in the 10 ml bottle. Please visit our dilution chart on the website for tips. https://www.rockymountainoils.com/dilution-rate
When would you use this vs Immune Strength or vice versa?
A shopper on Nov 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Because each person possesses a unique body chemistry, people can react differently to certain oils. For that reason, we provide a variety of blends with similar properties to achieve the same therapeutic objective.

Both Immune Strength and Flu Time are used to help support the healthy function of the immune system. However, Immune Strength is considered the more potent of the two. Since it is not prediluted with FCO.

What’s the difference between flu time, sacred immune and immune?
Virginia Q on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These blends are all very similar in what they are intended to do, however, they do have different ingredients. Because everyone reacts to oils differently we offer the two blends so that in case of one not giving the desired effect the other may be more beneficial. This is determined by each individual's body chemistry.

However, Flu Time and Sacred Immune Strength are safer for kids under the age of 6, unlike Immune Strength which is not recommended for kids under 10 due to the Eucalyptus.

Is it ok to take flu time orally? Such as a drop under the tounge?
