How to use the Camp Wander Cold and Flu Salves and more during Flu Season

How to use the Camp Wander
Cold and Flu Salves.

I have been pushing the Cold and Flu Salves for a while now. I can't stress enough how important it is to be prepared and ready when you have someone sick in your home. There are so many scary viruses out there right now and being prepared is the key. If you wait until someone gets sick to order the kit it will be to late. These oils may be helpful with helping ease the symptoms. 

If you have ordered the Cold and Flu Salves or Essential Oils or are thinking of ordering it this post is here for you to know how to use it when it arrives. 

The Cold and Flu Salves will arrive with four oils or salves depending on what you order that contains, Oregano (Nature's strongest anti-biotic) , Melaleuca (Proven to fight bacteria, virus and fungi) and Lavender Thieves (Support healthy immune function and Lemon.  

I always have this ready for family especially right now with all these viruses out there. 

 For children the Salves and ready to use and properly diluted. 

Open a jar, scoop out an eighth of a teaspoon with your fingertip. Smooth on the bottoms of each foot.  Layer and repeat with each Salve.

Adults can also take 3 drops of each oil in a gel or vegetable capsule every 3 hours when symptoms first occur. This is a more aggressive way to attack it and I suggest taking with some bread. You can also take 3 drops of each in a shot glass of water stirred up or applied on the bottom of the feet.


Zaq has a line of diffusers like no others out there. The Zaq Diffuser line is the best I have come across. The Zaq Mirage can run up to at least 8 hours, mine has done 12 before running out of water.  This is wonderful when you want to run it all night long in your child's room while they are sick.

We use this same diffuser in our home everyday with Lavender Thieves. Lavender Thieves is a wonderful blend of essential oils that may be helpful in killing airborne pathogens. We run this in the daytime and if needed at night but if there are respiratory issues we use Airway which may be helpful in opening up the breathing airways and coughs.

Stomach Aches

Digest Ease is a wonderful Salve that you will want to have on hand when those stomach aches hit especially in the middle of the night.   

A super digestive that we love to use topically on bellies and directly in navel for upset stomach, nausea, bloating and stomach cramps.

Here is my must have list that made that includes everything that I feel you will be prepared with when starting out with Essential Oils especially when going into the winter season. 

Be diligent in washing your hands and cleaning counter tops and door handles. 

If your child is anxious when they are sick and signs of anxiety show use Jeddy's Blend to help calm them and relax. Rub some on the bottom of the feet, on the back of the neck. This really does help with anxiety. 

I hope this helps in trying to figure out how to use the oils in the time of need when someone is sick. You will be glad that you were prepared.
