What is it?
A fever (pyrexia) is when the body temperature temporarily rises to reach, or exceeds, 37.8°C (100°F) for an oral read and 37.2°C (99°F) for an armpit reading. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, most commonly as a result of the body responding to viral and bacterial infections.

Blend intention

To calm, cool and reduce fever in order to improve the comfort of the patient.
NOTE: Always have a thermometer ready, keep checking the temperature every 30 minutes until stable.

Adults (12 years +)

Add 10 drops to 250ml of cool to cold water, soak two cotton face cloths, wring out excess fluid and apply to the ankles (this pulls the heat down away from the head). Leave for 3-5 minutes and repeat.

Once you’ve repeated a couple of times, use the remaining water to rub down arms, legs and body. Complete by resting the cool cloth on the forehead.

Add 5-10 drops of the above blend to a diffuser and place in the patient’s room. Replenish every hour. 

You can also use an immunity building blend or our Immune Care blend in your diffuser in conjunction with the fever blend.

Children (under 12 years)

Repeat the above with the children’s blend using half the adult strength (5 drops to 250ml of cool water). Use Child Immune Care in your diffuser in conjunction with fever blend.
