Measles: what is it?

Measles is a childhood infection caused by a virus, which is not in itself particularly dangerous, but very contagious. However, during an attack, the child defences are weakened. Therefore, he is much more vulnerable than usual to bacterial infections. These side infections, especially of the chest and ears, are the main danger associated with measles.

Essential oils to use during measles

Essential oils are not going to cure measles, let be clear. However, the use of essential oils is recommended to reduce danger of secondary infection, and alleviate some of the symptoms.

The safest way to use them is a diffuser located into the room of the sick child, especially for the youngest children. A mix of Eucaliptus and Tea-tree essential oils is the most recommended:

  • Eucalyptus essential oil is very effective at alleviating symptoms of respiratory tract infections, such as cough, runny nose, sore throat and nasal congestion.
  • Tea-tree essential oil is a potent antiviral oil. It might help to clean the atmosphere of the room, and avoid contamination of the rest of the family.

Both are also antibacterial, which can help to protect the sick child from secondary infections.

If your child is more than 4 years old, you can normally safely use essential oils directly (without diffuser):

  • You can use a compress soaked into water with a few drops of a febrifuge oil (to reduce fever). Camomile and Bergamot are good oils for this purpose.
  • Steam inhalations with eucalyptus can be used to ease the sore throat that accompanies measles.
