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.
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:
- 2-ounce tin containers
- 5 ounces Beeswax Pearls
- 5 ounces coconut oil (solid)
- 20 drops Eucalyptus Dives

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.
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.
