But, for a viral infection, have you ever heard “you have to let it run its course?” Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, because they’re found in cells. Essential oils are lipid - and so are our cells! So they’re able to get inside the cell and they’re effective against threats found on the inside and outside of cells.
