On Guard and Breathe Essential Oil Blends 15 mL bottles
Seasonal Health Power Couple

As the weather begins to turn colder you start to notice everyone around you with coughs, sniffles and congestion. You know it's just a matter of time before something hits you or your household, too. You take care of yourself by eating healthy, washing your hands regularly, and having a clean house, but sometimes that isn't enough. How do you protect your immune system against environmental and even seasonal threats? doTERRA On Guard and doTERRA Breathe Respiratory Blend is the perfect answer to both of these problems.*

On Guard's immune-boosting essential oils include: Wild Orange Peel, Cinnamon Leaf, and Cinnamon Bark.* The other oils in the blend comprise Clove Bud, which when taken internally helps with cardiovascular health*, and Eucalyptus Leaf (Eucalyptus globulus) which also promotes feelings of clear breathing, and promotes oral health. Finally, Rosemary essential oil supports healthy respiratory function.* (please note that the this Eucalyptus Leaf is a different oil from the single Eucalyptus oil doTERRA offers, which is not for internal use).


The best method of using doTERRA On Guard for the maximum benefit to your immune system is to take it internally, either in a beverage or in a veggie capsule. I personally like to add 1 drop to my morning coffee with a little coconut creamer - it tastes like a pumpkin spice latte. - YUM!
