Blockade is one of my favorite smelling essential oils from the herbal toad. It smells fresh and clean, not at all like a germ killer.
Blockade Synergy Blend is The Herbal Toad's number one selling synergy blend. Â It is aromatherapist blended with essential oils that are known for their ability to kill harmful bacteria, mold, and viruses. Â This blend is a multi-purpose essential oil blend, meaning that it can be diffused into the air, used to clean and purify the home, or any number of uses as listedÂ in the recipes / uses tab below. Blockade is safe to diffuse around the entire family, however, for diffusing in enclosed areas such as closed bedrooms with children under 2 years of age, consider Kids Blockade instead.
Common Uses: oral abscess, air pollution, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, bladder infection, candida, chronic fatigue, cleaning, cold sores, colds and flu, coughs, gum disease, infection, lupus, mold, mono, MRSA, pneumonia, scabies, sore throat, staph infection, warts
NOTE: Always check with your doctor about a formal treatment plan for serious condition. While essential oils are helpful, The Herbal Toad makes no claims to 'cure' any disease.
Each of our synergy blends are formulated by an aromatherapist/herbalist and are are created using the same third party tested single EO’s that you find in our store.
