OnGuard Essential Oil:
A Protective Blend

OnGuard Essential Oil: for all-natural immune defense against viruses and bacteria, via SustainableBabySteps.com

OnGuard essential oil is a proprietary immune support blend that is extremely helpful in getting or staying well.

The oil is a blend of five potent oils that have been studied for their antiviral essential oil abilities to fight bacteria, viruses, mold and more. It's a superb oil for immunity, for cold and flu season, to fight infection and for cleaning. (Read below for an expanded list of possible uses.)

Emotionally and energetically, this blend is also said to help defend against toxic people, heling us ward off negativity in the same way it helps to ward off immune threats. It's helps to boost inner strength, create and honor boundaries, and release relationships that have become codependent or unhealthy.

Even though essential oils are natural and safe, they are also potent. Be sure to read the precautions below for information on how to use OnGuard essential oil more effectively.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON QUALITY

The information provided here on the properties and uses of this oil do NOT apply to all essential oil brands.

Because of lenient industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as "natural" or "pure", much of what you find at the drug store is not a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may actually make you sick. In fact, only about 50% of it needs to be actual essential oils to be called "pure"!

A LOT goes into creating a therapeutic grade essential oil. The best essential oil brands follow these guidelines:

  • Proper plant varieties
  • Grown in their indigenous region around the world
  • Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
  • Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
  • Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
  • Third-party testing of each and every batch
  • Stand behind the internal use of their oils

How to use essential oils!

aromatic applicationAromatically - Can be diffused or inhaled directly.
topical applicationTopically - Can be applied directly to the skin or within a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, for young or sensitive skin. Start with 1 drop to 1-3 tsp of carrier and increase the EO as needed.
internal applicationInternally - NOT RECOMMENDED FOR MOST BRANDS. High quality brands may be "generally recognized as safe" by the FDA (21CFR182.20) to be used in cooking, adding a drop to purified water or taken as a dietary supplement, diluting 1 drop in 1 tsp. honey or 4 oz of non-acidic, non-dairy beverage (not for children under 6 years old and in greater dilution for older children).
sensitive applicationSensitive - "Sensitive" means that although some can apply the oil without any dilution, directly to the skin, those with sensitive skin should do a patch test or dilute before use.

Precautions: Dilute for children or anyone with sensitive skin. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Use with caution during pregnancy.
