All About Our OnGuard Family!

Hello friends!!!

By now, you are probably aware that I’m a fanatic for essential oils… but not just any essential oils…. only doTERRA Essential oils (if you want to know why this is the only brand of oils I recommend… click here)


In this blog post, I am going to focus on the essential oil blend that got me started —
OnGuard (Protective Blend).


It was about 6 years ago when someone gave me a tiny little sample vial of OnGuard. They told me to use it as hand-sanitizer because there were studies that showed how this oil could be used to fight some of the most nasty germs we see in the hospital. (Click here to see the publication that convinced me that essential oils are more than just nice smelling perfumes).


OnGuard essential oil blend is one of doTERRA’s most popular, and one that I never leave home without. It’s generic name is called Protective Blend which says it all…. it boosts your immune system and can protect you from threats. This blend has become so popular and effective that doTERRA has created an entire family of different OnGuard products!! In this post I will highlight the benefits of all of the OnGuard line of products and provide you with a daily routine using all of the OnGuard products. Additionally, as always, I’ll give you some great DIY recipes and diffuser blends to try!
I hope you enjoy…


I want to highlight the OnGuard products that I take with me when I travel:

  • OnGuard Beadlets
  • OnGuard PLUS softgels
  • OnGuard Touch Roller
  • OnGuard Hand sanitizer
  • OnGuard Throat Lozenges


OnGuard Beadlets

This option is a quick and convenient way to get a mini-dose of OnGuard (actually each beadlet is about 1/4 of one drop of essential oil). The beadlets are just tiny vegetable capsules that easily dissolve in your mouth or stomach. A few of my friends give these to their kids every day on their way out the door to school. These are perfect to keep in your purse or backpack and easy to use anytime on the go! Click here to buy.




OnGuard+ Softgels

These are my BIG GUNS when I need to stay healthy while traveling. I take one before I hop on an airplane, and 2 if I feel that painful scratchy throat coming on. I take one if I’ve been around my friends’ sick kids all day, or if the person sitting behind me in the movies was coughing up a lung the entire time. If you thought OnGuard alone was an amazing blend, you will LOVE the OnGuard PLUS blend which is taken up a notch with the addition of Black Pepper, Oregano, and Melissa essential oils for extra immunity support! This blend comes encapsulated in vegetarian softgels, and not only has positive effects on the immune system but also has the ability to support the body’s natural antioxidant defenses and healthy circulation. I carry a bottle of these in my carry-on bag every time I travel. Click here to buy.



OnGuard Touch 

This is an easy and convenient way to keep the protection going anywhere you go! doTERRA’s Touch line is a “diluted” version of some of our most popular oils using fractionated coconut oil. This diluted version of OnGuard provides a gentle and purifying application method perfect for both children and adults. Keep this convenient roller bottle in a diaper bag, purse or backpack and ensure you always have your germ protection handy!

I rub OnGuard Touch on the bottom on my feet, along my jaw-line, and even on my hands to clean them when I don’t have my Hand-Sanitizer with me. Click here to order yours!



OnGuard Sanitizing Mist

Whether you are on an African safari or at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I’ll bet that you often find yourself in places where soap and water are not available. Seriously this is my favorite new product of the year!
OnGuard Sanitizing Mist purifies hands by eliminating 99.9% of bacteria and other germs on the skin through an extremely fine, quick drying mist.
This non-toxic hand sanitizing mist is infused with a natural apple extract, the moisturizing formula will not dry out the skin and leaves hands feeling soft and smooth. The naturally derived active ingredient, ethyl alcohol, gives the mist antiseptic properties to effectively cleanse hands and prevent the spread of bacteria.
Use it to sanitize hands after touching gym equipment, door handles, shopping carts, and even your own cell phone!  Grab yours today.



OnGuard Protecting Throat Drops

These have a spicy, cinnamon taste (reminds me of Red Hot candies or those little valentines cinnamon hearts).  I think they are a little hot, so give cautiously to the little people in your life. These throat drops are a blend of OnGuard oil mixed in a base of organic cane juice and brown rice syrup. You might just find yourself eating them like candy!!
These drops help calm and soothe dry, scratchy throats while supporting a healthy immune function and overall health!
For best results during seasonal and environmental threats, use drops throughout the day in addition to washing hands frequently with OnGuard Foaming Hand Wash or use your Hand Sanitizer! Order yours now
