Anti Viral Nasal Swab for Cold and Flu Season

Anti Viral Nasal Swab for Cold and Flu Season

featured products
Did you know that your nose is the most popular gateway for viral infections?  To prevent a pending viral infection, try this simple and effective nasal swab protocol next time you feel a common cold coming on and/or you find yourself surrounded by illness and diffusing isn't an option. This awesome, portable decoration on the front of our face is a complex personal air treatment system creatively designed to protect the delicate tissues of your lungs. Your nose filters air, trapping tiny particles before they can get to your lungs, humidifies the air, adds vital moisture to keep your airways from drying out and, your nose also warms the air to body temp before it reaches your lungs. Did you know that a cold is a viral infection in the lining of your nasal passages? It gets there by touching contaminated surfaces then touching your nose or eyes, or being exposed to contagious particles in the air from coughing and sneezing but when you nose is working properly, nice and moist with open airways, cold viruses get swept out of the nasal passages in your mucus. When your nose isn't in optimal health, a virus can park itself and eventually make it's way into nasal tissue and boom, infection/cold sets in! Always remember that a healthy nose is your first line of defense against colds, bronchitis and other respiratory illnesses. Keeping your nose healthy and happy not only wards off viral infections it also allows the lungs to work more efficiently and may reduce asthma symptoms. How can we help our nose out? Keep it moist! My pure, therapeutic salve blends can help kick a cold or flu to the curb if you use it at the first signs of infection like a scratchy throat, drainage in the back of your throat, sneezing etc. The CW Lavender Thieves blend of therapeutic, anti-viral essentials oils well diluted in organic coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax, rosehip seed oil and vitamin e oil creates a near perfect medium to moisten and clear unwanted pathogens from nasal passages. It's an easy protocol to use throughout the day that gets some pure, healing ingredients close to the place where an opportunistic virus digs in it's heels. nasal-swab

Try Lavender Thieves Therapeutic Salve Blend to prevent cold or flu.

Approximately 1/8 of a teaspoon on the tip of an organic cotton swab for each nostril at the first sign of an impending cold or flu symptoms is all it takes, continue to apply several times throughout the day.

Try Airway Therapeutic Respiratory Salve if you're in the midst of a nasty cold to open airways, reduce inflammation and add welcome anti-microbial moisture.

Approximately 1/8 of a teaspoon on the tip of an organic cotton swab for each nostril relieve stuffy nose and breathe easier, continue to apply several times throughout the day.

How do you maintain a healthy nose?
  1. Drink water, stay hydrated.
  2. Warm the air you breathe in cold temps by wearing a scarf over your nose and mouth.
  3. Keep nasal passages moist especially when exposed to dry air, allergens or infection.
  4. Limit or discontinue use of nasal sprays that can damage the cilia that clear the nose and sinuses and cause worse symptoms.
  5. Find out if any prescriptions you're taking are contributing to chronic nasal problems. Even eyedrops can aggravate the nose when they drain into the nose with tears.
And before I close, just a little more information about the importance of mucus. Mucus in the nasal passages must have just the right balance of stickiness and fluidity for the filtering process to work well. Allergic reactions and infections interrupt this balance and so does dry air, irritating chemicals and second hand smoke. Healthy Tip! I very often swab my nose with CW Naked Salve before I take cold Wyoming walks with Maple, this simple step prevents the cold dry air from pulling out any moisture from my nose, it feels great too!  Remember, dried out nasal passages and thickened mucus compromises your nose's ability to sweep out germs and leaves you more susceptible to infection. The nose knows! nasal-swab

I am allergic to cinnamon, clove, nutmeg :( I can’t eat it or inhale it, which eliminates the use of thieves oils or blends in my house. I know it’s a powerful oil, can you recommend a different oil or blend I can use or make to use for the this anti viral swab. I teach computers for k-6 students and see about 130 kids a day so I think this would be a great tool to have.

I suffer from Sjogrens, so everything dries up- eyes, nose, mouth, etc. Is this safe to use daily, and will it work for this problem?

Deedra, if you’re looking for moisture you might want to try CW Naked Salve – there are no essential oils in Naked Salve but the amazing healing components of just the salve base may be very helpful for you.

My daughters and I been using this protocol for our grands, just a small amount on a QTip, with no issue. The essential oils are highly diluted with a pure salve base, doesn’t sting or dry only relieves and in our experience, stops the symptoms of a cold coming on. Never use essential oils in nasal passages undiluted, the oils must be well diluted with an emollient base that’s pure, contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory. That’s the only medium in which I’ll consider using a swab protocol.

I have a 9 month old and almost three year old. Could I use the therapeutic salve on them or are they too young for the EOs in the ingredients? I am still new at EOs, but know there are some not safe for children under 2 or 4 or 10. Thank you!

I’m wondering, would this be good to use everyday through the winter season, or just when a cold is coming on and while you have the cold? I live in the upper Midwest and it gets pretty cold & dry here, it will be 5 degrees tomorrow. Otherwise maybe using all purpose salve on days that I don’t have a cold or dry nose?

Hi Kathleen, thank you for your question! There are two EOs that I would suggest for nail fungus, Melaleuca or Oregano. I prefer using Essential Oil Salves for their easy application and skin protectants – here’s a link to read more about this new concept…

Hi Rebecca,
I searched the website but didn’t find a remedy for toe-nail fungus. What would you suggest for that?
I bookmarked your site, though, because I see that you have a plethora of wonderful remedies! Thanks for making this website!

Hi Rebecca. Hope this finds you well. I was wondering if you would share the recipe for the Airway Blend Salve. I thought it was the Respire Blend but that has different oils. I would love to make this as I have been using it on my daughters as they are fighting a cold and it has been helping. Love the application through the nose! What an idea and it totally helps!! Love all you recipes and thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Hi there. I currently have a sample of the Airway blend and have been using it on my daughters for their colds. Love the smell and it seems to help and I try to use it when my asthma starts acting up! Do you have a recipe for the airway blend and I so how many drops would you put in the naked salve? I thought maybe it was the respire blend but that has different oils. I love all your salve recipes, I think I have tried them all! Thank you for sharing your recipes and knowledge!

Colleen, yes this protocol can be used everyday in dry, cold weather! If you’re not worried about catching cold I would use plain CW Naked Salve. You’ll still get some anti-bacterial benefits from the coconut oil etc too :)
