OnGuard Essential Oil is one of doTERRA’s best selling oils for good reason. This mulit-use essential oil is dubbed as the
to ward off 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.
OnGuard Essential Oil is a proprietary doTERRA essential oil blend and it can be used for variety of things. It contains the following 100% pure therapeutic grade oils: Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. It is antiviral, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti anything bad that you can think of as well as being antiseptic, immune stimulant, purifier, etc. etc. the list goes on. It is my very favorite oil and I love to use it. It is so versatile, it should be in every home!
OnGuard Essential Oil can be used for:
•air pollution/airborne bacteria/candida
•cystitis/bladder infections/urinary tract issues
•low blood sugar
•oral conditions like cavities, halitosis, and gum disease
•sore throat/throat infection/strep
•all types of warts
OnGuard Essential Oil can be taken in various ways.
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!
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. Sometimes people develop more sensitivity to the oil over time, so see how it works for you. 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 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. They are listed below!
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.
