Welcome to part 3 of our essential oil education series! If you are just joining us, please start here:
Are you On Guard?!
OnGuard is doTERRA’s essential oil blend to boost immunity and fight off sickness. I like to imagine a big warrior with a sword, ready to attack anything unwelcomed and protect me. We use it on our feet every morning as prevention. We diffuse it in our home constantly in the winter to stop the spread of sickness, reduce recovery time and help us avoid the bugs in the first place. (Several years ago I remember being so sick of being sick. It seemed that all winter I was home with someone that had a bug. It would pass around over and over again. Now we are maybe sick a few days a year. It’s awesome!)
OnGuard comes in many products:
-Essential Oil Blend (topical, diffused)
-Beadlet (for quick on the go boost)
-Softgel (combined with the most powerful antibacterial and antiviral oils. This has knocked out many sicknesses for us a few hours.)
-Toothpaste (heavenly and safe to swallow)
-Foaming Hand Wash (stop the spread!)
-Cleaner Concentrate (for cleaning most everything)
Wow! The list sure has grown. I love these products!
-Peppermint: on feet, neck & inhale
-Slim & Sassy: 2-5 drops in a drink of water
-Mito2Max: supplement for stamina & sustained energy
-lavender: on feet, neck & pillow. Inhale.
-Vetiver: if you need help with deep sleep. Put the tinyest bit on your foot (big toe). I can do this and 4 hours of sleep feels like a full night. (I do not recommend this, but on those nights when you just don’t get the sleep, it is a lifesaver).
Funny story with this one: Grandma has a really hard time sleeping and I knew vetiver was good for that. I asked if I could rub her feet. I used way too much (probably 8 drops or so). The next day I was totally wasted and couldn’t figure out why. Just by breathing it and having it on my hands I had slept all night and was drained all the next day. This is hard core! Just a tiny bit, please. (Note: everyone’s body chemistry is different, so my best oil for a certain issue may not be what works best for you. Be patient. You will find the right oil that is best for you. The greatest resource is the Modern Essentials book. It is a super easy guide book, A-Z look up your ailment and get recommendations on what has worked for others.)
-Balance/Serenity: if you suffer from anxiety, This one is great. Layer balance and serenity on your feet, neck and inhale.
Oils and their uses:
These are some things that have been found beneficial in my home and for those I know.
Melaleuca: great for the skin! Acne, Boils, Cold Sores (another funny- my 7 year old had his first canker shortly after I got my oils. I heard Melaleuca was good and told him he could choose. I warned him it would taste gross, but he would feel better. He agreed. I put one drop on his cold sore. He stuck out his tongue and complained that it was gross. Of course, I couldn’t take it out. Less than a minute later… “Wow! It doesn’t hurt anymore, Thanks MOM!” Melaleuca is his favorite oil and he loves telling his story.)
Lemon: cleans sticky goo off (price stickers, labels, etc..), great white board cleaner, drink in your water daily to help your body flush out toxins (great for all citrus oils), makes a great lemon bar (recipe in Modern Essentials Book 5th ed)
Quick Recipe- Sanitizing Spray!
**OnGuard has been clinically studied and is amazing at stopping eColi, Staph, Strep and more… you can wipe the counter (onGuard Cleaner) and bacteria won’t grow for 7 days. Truly Amazing! It gets rid of the bad bacteria and lets you keep your good bacteria (unlike alcohol sanitizers that kill everything)
2 oz misting spray bottle filled with distilled water
5-10 drops OnGuard
*I use this to spray surfaces (doorknobs, lightswitches, toys, etc.) whenever I need to sanitize and especially when someone is sick. I gave a bottle to each of my kids to spray their hands as sanitizer and we spray throats to avoid or conquer illnesses.
