Homemade Antibiotic Capsules

This winter has been terrible for colds, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia . . . and everything in-between. We've all had sick friends and relatives, co-workers, schoolmates, church family . . . it may even have hit you. Almost everyone has had to miss something because they were laid-up in bed or on the "sick couch." 

And most of those people were talked into taking Rx antibiotics for help getting rid of the Creeping Crud . . . which usually leads to other problems ~ lowered resistance to catch another virus, yeast infections, body chemistry completely screwed up, gut problems because the good bacteria was killed along with the bad bacteria. I have waited on people (at the health food store) who have come in, over and over, with ALL of these issues ~ ALL caused by reaction to their Rx antibiotics. 

But, when you're sick, what are you supposed to do?! 

One thing you can do is make your own antibiotic capsules. Using essential oils that (unless you are allergic) will kill all the nasties without the above side effects. 

(**NOTE** While on ANY antibiotic, be sure to take a good, strong probiotic; 50 billion - 100 billion strains. This will replace any good bacteria that is being killed off with the bad bacteria.) 

These are SO very simple to make, only 4 items . . . 
You can buy empty capsules at most health food stores, a few drug stores, or through bulk companies like Frontier and Mountain Rose Herbs; in gelatin or vegetarian capsules.
Thieves Oil is, I believe, a large part of what keeps my family well. This is an historic blend of 5 essential oils with germ killing wellness factors all of their own, but together will fight off almost anything. I use my homemade Thieves oil in so many things ~ I keep a little bottle in my purse which I also take out and keep in my work apron at the health food store; I rub a couple drops into my hands as a hand sanitizer after every 2-3 customers and especially after I handle dirty money or use the credit card of someone who is obviously sick. I use it in my homemade toothpaste, I use it in my homemade room spray for the bathroom and to spray around the house when a family member is sick, and I put a drop into my Wellness Tea if I think I'm starting to feel a little fuzzy-headed to nip-in-the-bud anything I might be coming down with. EXCELLENT oil blend.
Oregano Oil is a certified herbal antibiotic all by itself. I switch back-and-forth between using oregano essential oil and a product called Oreganol P73. Frankly, in my own experience, not a lot of difference between the two. My family likes to use the Oreganol P73 sublingually (under the tongue) to boost their immunities because they like the teenie little dropper in the small size. :-) Oregano oil is antibiotic, antiseptic, antimicrobial, antifungal and kills nearly any virus.
Frankincense, a.k.a. Boswellia, is the king of most healing herbs/oils. Frankincense has been getting some highly favorable press in at least 2 studies (that I know of at this writing ~ read about one of them HERE) as being a very effective cancer fighter. Frankincense is a genuine healer, it is antiseptic, astringent and anti-inflammatory. It brings down the swelling of nasal passages, sore throats, relieves canker sores; helps with arthritis, gout, stiffness and pain.
You Will Need:

~empty "00" capsules
~10 drops Thieves Oil**
~6 drops oregano essential oil OR Oreganol P73**

2) carefully drop oils into the large end of capsule
3) attach short end of capsule, gently but firmly pushing the capsule together as tight as you can
4) store in an amber bottle in a cool, dry place

Take 1 or 2 per day with water.

Make a few ahead of time so that you have them ready to use when you need them. Let me know how much you benefited from these homemade antibiotic capsules.

  1. Thanks for this! And the best part is ~ have all these oils! d

  2. Thanks for another good suggestion in keeping away the bad guys. I like to take my herbals on a regular basis to keep up a good line of defense. But I am glad to have another option if I should get a bug from somewhere when I am out and about.
