On Guard is one of doTERRA’s best selling oils for good reason. This mulit-use essential oil is dubbed as the “Protective Blend” to ward of unwanted infection, bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses. It’s like a warm, spicy shield of protection that is a strong ally for the immune system.
The single essential oils contained in On Guard are: Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary. The combination of these potent oils create a serious immune boosting punch that can both prevent an illness to take hold in the body or help one heal much more quickly from an acute attack.
Other body ailments On Guard could greatly improve include:
- smoking addiction
- air pollution/airborne bacteria
- cystitis/bladder infections/urinary tract issues
- low blood sugar
- chronic fatigue
- cold sores
- the flu
- oral conditions like cavities, halitosis, and gum disease
- sore throat/throat infection/strep
- all types of warts
On Guard can be taken in various ways. Some people with more sensitive skin may need to dilute it with a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil or jojoba oil so it does not burn. I am able to drop the oil neat (non-diluted) onto my neck and chest with no problems, but today I got a drop on my chin (meant to get it in my mouth!), and it really burned until I put on some lotion to soothe it. Sometimes people develop more sensitivity to the oil over time, so see how it works for you. I like to put a drop or two in my mouth daily. You can also make a tea with it by adding 3-5 drops or so to hot water – add fresh squeezed organic lemon and local honey for added healing delight. On Guard could also be taken as a supplement in capsules daily with food for preventative effects. Put On Guard in an essential oil diffuser as an immune system booster and to purify the air for 20-25 minutes at a time. The On Guard Protective Throat Drops that doTERRA sells are a super yummy way to ingest the oils’ healing properties. Quite a step up from Vicks or Ricola!
On Guard is also great for home disinfecting and cleaning. doTERRA carries On Guard Foaming Hand Soap and hand sanitizing wipes. Use these products instead of chemical laden conventional soaps which are bad for you and the environment.
Imagine a life of abundance where you are always feeling healthy instead of succumbing to “flu season” where you go through a steady diet of doctor’s visits, cold medicine, feeling weak, tired, and congested, and expending tons of effort just to get through your day. And this happens for your whole family. I think the simplicity of incorporating On Guard into your life to sustain high health is so easy, smells and feels good, that it should be touted by health practitioners everywhere.
Remember, visualize a positive, thriving, abundant outlook for your life and health. On Guard is here to be a helping friend in this regard.
