Benefits and Uses Of On Guard

DoTERRA's On Guard Essential Oil is one I  can not be without. I go through On Guard pretty fast in my home. I use it topically, in the diffuser and as a tea the cough drops are great to have too. On Guard is really tasty and it makes your whole house smell so good its like fall time and it purifies the air! My two older kids love On Guard when they are sick. They really look forward to a cup of warm tea and On Guard cough drops throughout the day. Its a special treat for them. I also put a few drops in a roll-on with a drop of Frankincense and Fractionated coconut oil so its ready to go and all I have to do is roll it on mine or the kids feet, neck, and throat. It helps shorten the duration of any sickness going around and purifies the air it really is a must have.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my
iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
