Immune Support

One of the best ways to use Rosalina is for its immune boosting benefits. This is because of its high Linalool content. So if it’s that time of year where bugs are going around the office and school, add a few drops to your diffuser. If you plan on diffusing all day, we recommend diffusing 30 minutes on and 30 minutes off.

Because it helps stimulate the immune system, this oil is one to avoid for those with autoimmune disorders.


Respiratory Issues

Another one of Rosalina’s most popular uses is to help the respiratory system. Whether it’s allergies or seasonal sickness, diffuse this to help with breathing. If you’re feeling especially congested, whip up this DIY Vapor Rub to ease breathing when you need it most.


DIY Vapor Rub

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:

Over a double boiler melt together the beeswax and coconut oil. Remove from heat and quickly stir in your essential oils. Pour into tins and allow to cool fully. This has a shelf life of 1 year when stored in a cool and dark place.


Allergy Season

During pollen season, you’ll want this oil on hand. It helps relieve the symptoms of allergies and helps with breathing. Diffuse on an intermittent setting or use with a personal inhaler to get on-the-go relief.


Safe for the Kiddos

And if you need another reason to add this oil to your collection, it is gentle and safe. If you love using Eucalyptus on yourself, swap with Rosalina for use on your kiddos and enjoy many of the same therapeutic benefits!

  • I LOVE adding this oil to my allergy blends. Also works well just sniffing from the bottle for acute relief!

  • Love the scent of Rosalina. The chest rub on this recipe is too hard for me though. I used a lot less beeswax on my 2nd batch.

  • I put a drop or two on my casual everyday clothing. To me it smells as a delicate perfume and last for a long time.

  • I love the fact that this oil is safe for kids and for nursing moms! Looks like I’ll nee to add this to my oily collection!

  • I cannot wait to get this and make the vapor rub, however; when I click on the 2oz tin link it says the item is not available.

    1. Unfortunately, the 2-ounce tins are no longer available. You should be able to find something similar on Amazon!

  • Interesting, I have an autoimmune disease. I would love an article on other essential oils that I should avoid!

  • I LOVE rosalina! I can’t get enough of the smell. I am really excited to see all the different ways to use it now that it’s been “Spotlight-ed!”

  • Love it! Thanks for the great info! I just got my Rosalina today and I can’t wait to use it.

  • My son consume antibiotics for his lung infection. The Rosalina really help his Nasal congestion during sleeping.

  • I’m SO glad I just bought Rosalina, since it’s coming into Winter in Australia!
    Can’t wait to try the chest rub recipe once it arrives

  • We love that rosalina is a kid safe option to help with congestion, and it smells good too! Can’t wait to try the vapor rub in addition to diffusing to help relieve symptoms in the littles.

  • Really interesting to learn that Rosalina is similar to eucalyptus in terms of benefits! I will have to try it out soon. Thank you Plant Therapy!

  • Rosalina saved my family big time during sick season. I love that it works just as well as Eucalyptus at clearing congestion while being safer for kids.

  • Hello! I saw it mentioned Rosalina shouldn’t be used if you have an autoimmune disorder. Are there other oils that stimulate the immune system just like Rosalina?

  • Can’t wait for this to get here! I’m hoping this will help with allergies and I can alternate with Sneezy Stop!

  • I’ve been using Rosalina the last few days for congestion in my kids, it’s great! My 9mo is really blocked up so I ran the shower to do a steam bath and put a couple of drops under it, it worked really well!
    I just made the vapour rub… it smells good, but it’s a bit too solid so I think I might re melt it and add some jojoba. I also added some lavender EO to help with sleep as I find chest rubs most effective at night.

  • I’ve been diffusing this with cypress to help us all get over some respiratory/allergy problems – very helpful and kid safe!

  • I just got rosalina in the mail and I love the way it smells. I am looking forward to using it for respiratory support and immune support.

  • I bought this to use for colds and allergies, but really appreciate your caution for those with autoimmune disorders! My daughter has one and so I will be sure to avoid this one for her! Thanks for your concern for your customers!

  • Love this for DIY vapor rub. We make one without beeswax: Fir Needle, Rosalina, Spruce Black, Cypress with a touch of lavender and peppermint (the kiddo is over 6 years old; leave out the peppermint for a kid safe version). I melt raw shea butter with unrefined coconut oil. Once off the heat, I add a squirt of aloe gel along with the EO blend. We both use it to quell night coughs.

  • I have noticed Rosalina in some our family’s favorite synergies. Nice to learn about it’s benefits and uses on its own.

  • I got this one last year during cold season, when I was looking for a kidsafe option for coughs. I’m glad I got the 30ml–I love it and have used it a lot! It has been so effective. I’ve been diffusing it this week at bedtime for my husband, who has had some terrible cough related to allergies. Seemed to really ease his cough and help him sleep better.

  • Rosalina is the only oil that really helps my son during his sick days. I diffuse it during bedtime and help him stay asleep because he’s not coughing! My go to oil for sickness.

  • I can’t wait to try it with Lemon and Lavender. It sounds like it will be lovely.

  • I feel you, Jill. Kentucky is beautiful but we suffer here in the Spring. You can see it in the greenish yellow haze all over our cars and patio furniture! I adore Rosalina and have found that it also has some pretty profound emotional effects too. I have used it when I’m sick but haven’t tried it for my allergies yet, but I certainly will now.

  • Rosalina was one of my first 10 essential oils ever!! I love using it for immunity boosting in a personal inhaler. Thanks for the awesome overview!!

  • Rosalina helped my son so much this year! He asks for it now when he is congested and has a cough.
    It is one of my favorites.

  • I like this for coughs & colds, will try the diffuser blend with lemon & lavender for an immune boost. Love it, thanks for the info

  • I’m adding to my next order. I’m having a hard tone with allergies this year. Never really this bad before.

  • Rosalina is one of the most used oil in my household. Scent is lovely, not overbearing. I’ve always associated menthol with allergies but since I’ve used PT, this has changed.

  • Ive been diffusing Rosalina lately for our allegies they have been worse than normal this year but rosalina has been a life saver

  • I am going to purchase this oil it is on sale and I suffer with allergies to perfumes, lotions, soaps, etc year round. RespAir and peppermint helps a whole lot, but it will be nice to get the same effect in a new scent.

  • Oh my as someone who is SUFFERING through some terrible seasonal allergies (but Kentucky is still the best place to live!) I cannot wait to try this out.

    1. I have really been suffering with allergies this season. Thanks for the info. This definitely sounds like an oil I need to add to my collection.

    2. I bought this oil a while back but haven’t used it yet. After reading this blog it doesn’t sound like I should since I have Rheumatoid Arthritis an autoimmune disease. Why would this be a problem? I’m trying to understand why this is a concern/issue. I’m glad Plant Therapy shares information about the pros and cons of essential oils. Thanks for the informative blog!
