The search to address common, everyday seasonal ailments is an issue for all cultures. For this reason you can walk through your favorite store and see products lining the shelves for over the counter, Ayurvedic and other aids in supporting households everywhere. I discovered one of my favorites while driving across the country a few years ago.
We regularly travel as a family and I could feel the wear of the road on my body. I wasn't getting enough sleep, I wasn't being active enough, I wasn't eating great and setting myself up to fall victim to environmental threats that come with every season.
And then I felt "it" coming on.
You know the feeling, the tingle in your nose, the sensation in your throat, or being a little bit more than tired. I knew I needed to do something and act quickly.
Essential Oil Seasonal Threat BusterWhile I was traveling, I didn't have all my essential oils with me, but I never travel without my doTERRA OnGuard beadlets. I whipped one out, squished it between my fingers and applied some on and around my nose. I also gargled with some colloidal silver, a must-have for all home-health-centers.
I made sure to follow up my OnGuard with lots of water and tried to get a lot of sleep that night. The next day, that tingle in my nose was gone and my scratchy throat. too! This has been one of my go-to's ever since.
What Is In OnGuard?
Let me tell you, OnGuard under my nose was potent! On Guard is a blend from doTERRA consisting of wild orange peel, clove bud, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus leaf, and rosemary leaf/flower essential oils. It is important to dilute these when possible, but I do not have sensitive skin. They pack a punch!
On Guard provides a natural and effective alternative for immune support when used internally (like the onGuard beadlets normally are) and protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system when ingested - so it's no wonder it helped me!
If you really want to support yourself day to day, you can take an OnGuard beadlet daily, no squishing required!
