21 Ways to Use On Guard Essential Oil Blend

*Disclaimer: I am not a health professional and essential oils are not meant to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.*

On Guard is a special blend of oils produced by DoTERRA containing:

  • Wild Orange Peel
  • Clove Bud
  • Cinnamon
  • Eucalyptus
  • Rosemary

It is a blend that protects you from environmental threats as well as builds your immune system in a natural way. It’s so useful in this way that DoTERRA has an entire line of On Guard products ranging from self care items such as toothpaste all the way to cleaning products for your household! It is probably the single oil I go through the most since I start diffusing it and rubbing it on myself and my family at the first sign of so much as a runny nose!

I find it’s aroma to be quite grounding, so I’ve been known to diffuse it when I’m feeling a bit anxious(af) as well to tether me back to earth. It’s also a great scent for fall and can be used to connect you to your lower chakras.

As a great rule of thumb, this is the oil you reach for whenever you feel any sort of sickness coming on.

It’s also the oil you use to clean everything you own.

Aside from mixing oils into fun diy products for your home and body, there are several ways to get essential oils straight from their bottles into our systems: Topically, inhalation and ingestion. Not all oils can be used in all of these ways. Some are toxic when ingested, some may irritate the skin or respiratory system. It’s best to know which oils do what to who so that you and your family may use them as safely as possible.
Topically – Apply to skin either directly or by diluting with a carrier oil first.
Inhalation – Diffuse in a diffuser with water or smell directly.
Ingestion – Take drops by mouth or in a supplement capsule.
On Guard can be used in all three ways and DoTERRA has even made it super simple for us by creating different On Guard products for us to easily use as we wish. Aside from the normal oil, you can get it in an already fractured oil roller bottle for direct application to the skin or a beadlet for easy ingestion!
Also be aware that not all oils are safe for children. Always dilute oils when applying to children regardless to their safety status. Children’s body’s can be very sensitive. On Guard is considered to be safe on children.
Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas. Avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying product.

Why Brand Matters

Essential oils are neither a drug nor a supplement. This means they fall into an unregulated limbo open to many scammers. There are tons of “essential oils” out there that aren’t what they say they are. ‘Essentially’ they’re producing these little bottles of synthetic chemicals and fragrances and labeling them “Lavender essential oil” or whichever one their trying to pass it off as.

These fake ones don’t carry the benefits or properties of the actual oil and can cause irritation or other unforeseeable and unwanted side effects. Never opt for the cheap ones at your local grocery store. When it comes to your health, always go with a traceable, reliable source.

After doing tons of research when I first decided to invest in some oils, I chose DoTERRA. Not only are they trustable and pure in their products, but they also ethically and responsibly source all of their herbs and materials and do lots of humanitarian work. All things wonderful in my book.
