Winter Wellness with DoTERRA's On Gaurd Protective Blend

I have another weird & wonderful confession....... yep another one! 🙄 Ever since I was a child I have had a snotty / congested nose, actually throughout my whole corporate career I would say atleast once a day someone on the other end of the phone would say 'oh you poor thing, you have a cold' or think my name was Irene instead of Renee because of my congestion...... like seriously..... 🙄🙄👃!!!!

Anyhow....... so as a result, I have a massive issue with snot..... any form of it & when our son Eddie started daycare, there was seriously snot everywhere!! So when I heard about the wonders of DoTERRA's essential oils & On Guard & Easy Air (breathe) in particular, I smothered myself & Eddie in them!!

Here's what happened....... without a word of a lie I have been able to breathe through my nose on a consistent basis, there's still probably 5-10% of the time when I can't..... but hey, no complaints, I can now actually smell after a good 25-30 years of not being able to! Also while there is still snot galore at daycare, we are no longer at the doctors with Eddie & if he does have a runny nose or sickness it is short lived! 👊🏻
So here's how we keep our family well, our immune systems supported, and not only in winter, but all year round.

On Guard essential oil (DoTERRAs protective blend) has been formulated to combat viral & bacterial threats to the body. It is a blend of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus & Rosemary essential oils. See below for how we love to use it at home, plus some immune boosting, winter butt kicking recipes / ways you can use On Guard in your home

Daily immune boosting techniques

To support & boost your immune system on a daily basis, here is what I would recommend:
1. As a minimum apply OnGuard to the bottoms of your feet every morning.
Our go to blend recipe is in a 10ml roller.... for children aged 1-5....... 5 drops frankincense, 10 drops On Guard, topped off with fractionated coconut oil (FCO). For children aged 6+ and adults, you can use your discretion with dilution, however we use 10 drops frankincense, 20 drops On Guard topped off with FCO.
2. For an added immune boost, add a drop to your smoothies or porridge
3. And, my fav is diffusing OnGuard during the day (especially when we have visitors over) as this boosts everyone's immunity - yay!! So just 4-6 drops in your diffuser.

When you're coming down with something.......

When we're starting to feel sick we automatically turn to our immune-bomb, here's all the ways you can use this:
Kids: 5 drops each of Frankincense, Lemon, On Guard, Oregano, Tea Tree topped off with FCO
Adults: 10 drops each of Frankincense, On Guard, Oregano, Tea Tree, 15 drops lemon topped off with FCO.
Apply 3 times daily to bottoms of feet & base of skull until you're feeling well

You can also take the immune bomb internally, just take 1 drop of each frankincense, lemon, oregano, On Guard, tea tree in a veggie cap or with a teaspoon of raw honey twice daily (not recommended for children).

Also if you feel a sore throat coming on, gargle 1 drop of OnGuard in warm water for a minute & then swallow

Immune boosting in nearly every aspect of our home!!

So DoTERRA has a crazy massive range of Onguard products - while they're all AMAZING here's the ones we use daily:
All the essential oils in OnGaurd are not only fabulous for immune boosting but also for your oral health. One tube of the OnGuard whitening toothpaste lasts our family 2 months as you only need a pea size amount for each clean & as a Mum I love knowing that Eddie is using a completely natural toothpaste 😁
ok. So holy frick, the OnGaurd cleaner concentrate is so fabulous! We no longer use supermarket cleaners in our home. 1 bottle of the cleaner concentrate lasts us approx 3-5 months & we use this for all our counter tops, floors & washing dishes. I absolutely love that there is a 5ml bottle of OnGaurd essential oil in every bottle of cleaner concentrate which means I'm literally immune boosting our whole home!!!

Also, because OnGaurd is anti-bacterial I love to wash Eddies toys by adding a couple of drops of OnGuard in the sink. But seriously the uses are endless with this oil & cleaning!!
