On Guard is one of my favorite blends, not only because of the amazing benefits it brings to my family after a long day at school and work, but because it smells so good! Diffusing it along with Wild Orange and Lemon creates a lovely scent that uplifts and boosts our immune systems at the same time. This is one of my favorites to diffuse at home because of its protective benefits. Keeping my family safe from environmental threats is high on my priority list.

For real, my husband SWEARS by this oil and tells EVERYONE about it and how it has helped his immune system. When we first met, he was sick so many times that following winter. Once I introduced him to On Guard, he started using it every single day. He uses the pre-diluted Touch roller daily in both morning and evening on the bottoms of his feet and on his spine. Four years later and he hasn’t had any issues since.

On Guard for the Workplace
Keep a petal diffuser and a bottle of On Guard at your workplace to cleanse the air and keep your “bubble” clear of threats. Any time I see or hear that a co-worker is feeling under the weather, I pop a couple of On Guard beadlets and add 4 drops to my diffuser. The beadlets are equivalent to 1/4 of a drop of oil from the bottle which is the perfect amount if you need a quick pick me up. I also have a small glass spray bottle with the cleaner concentrate to wipe down my desk area weekly.
