10 Feel-Better Tricks
and Immune Boosters

You’ve felt that first sniffle and you’re about to reach for the tissues. In that moment, you’re battling both
the physical stress of potentially impending sickness and also the emotional stress of speculating whether
there’s anything you can do to make the next few days something other than miserable.

From a rare New Zealand honey to something soft to slip into when battle must be done from bed, these are the
tools we turn to when we want to help our immune systems do their thing.

  2. THE TEA

    If your tea consumption is getting to IV-drip level, you’re going to need a kettle that can take a workout. This one is a nice, heavy cast iron, and it comes with a diffuser that makes using loose-leaf tea a breeze.

  5. HELLO, SUNSHINE

    Maintaining a healthy level of vitamin D is an essential part of keeping your immune system robust. And because the body’s natural production of it relies on sun exposure and commitment to SPF is a good thing, it’s helpful to get some of your sunshine vitamin from a nonsunshine source. We like this one because it is excellent quality and comes from a company committed to sustainable sourcing.

  8. HONEY, PLEASE

    A cup of tea loaded with soothing honey is a sick-day staple. And you can really ratchet up the benefits by using manuka honey—a rare type from New Zealand that has high levels of a compound called methylglyoxal. We like these ones

    from Activist because they’re pure and potent: They’re certified for high measures of methylglyoxal content.

  14. THE HOT
    SPOT

    Lingering in the tub won’t solve all your problems, but it definitely makes things more bearable when you’re pretty sure you’re coming down with something. Nurse! is our go-to when that’s the case: It’s got pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salts, plus coconut oil, mustard powder, eucalyptus, lavender, and manuka—which all work some serious sick-day magic.

    Not only does it smell so good but puffing a few drops of lavender essential oil through a diffuser
    almost has a magic property, somehow making us feel

    like everything is going to be okay. And there’s a
    reason vitruvi diffusers are our favorites: They’re made of nice, heavy porcelain that lasts forever
    and looks pretty in any room.

    We wanted something to play backup for our immune system that was also easy and enjoyable, so we made Perfect Attendance. These two-a-day chews have

    elderberry extract—an ingredient traditionally used in soothing teas—and a specialty whole-food yeast called EpiCor for immune support. And on top of being good for you, it tastes really good: The blackberry flavor makes it a treat we look forward to taking.
