Now to the Uses for OnGuard Protective Blend:
3 to 4 drops is all it takes to purify the air in your home and support everyone’s healthy immune response when inhaling it.
For an immune supporting massage, combine 2 drops OnGuard with 1 tsp of carrier oil ( for sensitive skin, use only 1 drop OnGuard with 1 tbs carrier oil). I like to rub this mixture along the spine and on the bottoms of the feet for easy absorption.
Yes, you can take this oil internally! I do this daily!
Take 1 drop in 4 oz of liquid and drink it or, if the taste is too strong, simply put 2 drops OnGuard in an empty veggie cap and take with a sip of water. This will help support the body’s immune system, support the natural antioxidant defense and also a healthy respiratory function.
DIYs using OnGuard:
To use OnGuard Essential Oil as a natural hand cleanser, simply put a drop in your hand and rub it all over your hands. Yes, it’s that simple!
You can also make a hand cleansing spray: Fill a 1 oz glass spray bottle with water and witch hazel until almost full. Add 10 drops of OnGuard Essential Oil, close the bottle and shake. Easy Peasy!
Surface Spray Cleaner for around the home:
In a glass spray bottle, combine 1 cup of water with 10 drops OnGuard Essential Oil. Use it on all kinds of surfaces in your home. From kitchen counters to toilets and especially the baby toys and high chair.
Immune boosting Snack:
Cut up an apple or two into slices. Soak the slices, in a ceramic or stainless steel bowl, in water and a couple drops of OnGuard Essential Oil. It makes for a nice fruity and spicy cinnamon flavor. Super yummy and a total hit in my house, my baby can’t get enough of them!
Fill a shot glass with water and add 1 drop each of Tea Tree, OnGuard and Lemon Essential Oil. Gargle with the mixture for 15 seconds and then spit it out. It helps so much, I just had a bad sore throat a couple weeks ago and did this multiple times a day. It was gone within a couple days!
Support your Oral Health:
Make an OnGuard Mouthwash ( if you are not using doTerra’s OnGuard Mouthwash already) and support your oral health! I like to just keep it in a Mason Jar. I fill it with water ( I use a pint sized jar, it lasts around a week ) and add 15 drops of OnGuard Essential Oil. I love the taste of OnGuard with Lemon so I add an extra 5 drops of Lemon Essential Oil to the mix. Simple shake before use, take a mouthful and swish it around.
