It’s that time of year again; school is back in session, the weather is changing, and flu season is back. Flu season doesn’t have to get you down though because this year you have On Guard.
On Guard is a protective essential oil blend, consisting of wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary. We specifically formulated this blend to help support you and your family’s healthy immune system.
On Guard’s spicy and citrus aroma makes it one of the most versatile blends and can be used aromatically, topically, and internally. It is safe to use on counter tops, as a non-toxic way to clean surfaces, or to purify the atmosphere by diffusing.
Tips on how you can use On Guard essential oil:
Diffuse 2-4 drops of On Guard in home or office.
Take internally by putting a couple of drops in a capsule 2-3 times a day.
Put 6 drops per 24 oz. water in spray bottle to use to disinfect counter tops.
Massage on feet, back, neck and shoulders with a carrier oil to offer immune support.
Sanitize your toothbrush by mixing 2 Tbps water with 5 drops of On Guard in a small glass. Set toothbrush in glass and leave overnight.
It’s good health 101 — in addition to a healthy diet, exercise and plenty of rest, a safe and clean house is the basis for keeping you and your family free from sickness and infectious disease. But what about all those toxic chemicals found in most of today’s cleaning products? You might be concerned, and with good reason. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, household cleaning products account for 8.6 percent of all poison exposures and children age 5 and under make up more than half (51 percent) of all poison exposures. The last thing you should have to worry about is exposing your family to unnecessary toxic chemicals.

Hand washing has long been known as vital in stopping the spread of infectious diseases. With more than 52 million cases of the common cold each year in the U.S. and 10% to 20% of the population contracting the flu, keeping our hands germ free has never been more important.
On Guard® Foaming Hand Wash contains dōTERRA’s proprietary CPTG® essential oil blend and is a gentle, healthy alternative to harsh antibacterial soaps made with synthetic ingredients that may dry and irritate sensitive skin.
In a study done at Oklahoma University, research was conducted by using On Guard Protective Blend to see it’s effectiveness on influenza virus infections. The results were staggering. Despite antibiotics not being able to treat the influenza virus, results showed that On Guard Protective Blend reduced this virus by up to 90%. The researchers concluded that On Guard plays an important role in keeping families well without harsh side effects.
Placing On Guard Foaming Dispensers at every sink around the home and office provides those in your home and workplace with On Guard protection throughout the day, while also providing subtle style to sinks.
Tips on how to get your kids in the habit of washing their hands:
A thorough hand wash should last between 15-20 seconds. To help your kids wash their hands for a long enough time encourage them to sing “Happy Birthday”, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, or the “ABC” song.
Put a little mark on their hand using a non-permanent pen, then tell them they need to wash off all of the ink.
Leave out a white hand towel for them to use to dry their hands. If dirt shows up on the towel, they’re not washing their hands properly.
Create a hand washing chart. For every time your child washes their hands, they get a sticker for their chart.
Always remind kids to wash their hands often. Observe when they are washing their hands correctly and congratulate them on their good work.
Are you washing your hands? Make sure you are setting a good example by washing your hands frequently. Kids love mimicking their parents.
Don’t let flu season catch you off guard!

According to a study1 on essential oil mouth rinses, the study reviewed the efficacy of an essential oil antiseptic mouth rinse versus dental floss in controlling interproximal gingivitis. They found that in addition with professional dental hygiene care and brushing teeth over six months, rinsing twice daily with an essential oil–containing mouth rinse was at least as good as flossing daily in reducing interproximal plaque and gingivitis.
Tip on how to use On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste as a Mouth Rinse:
- On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste can also be a mouthwash! With foam from the toothpaste still in your mouth, add water, gargle, and spit. Voila. Effective mouthwash.
