On Guard: Essential Oil

On Guard has become my essential oil of choice, day in and day out. Its robust and invigorating blend is not just an aroma—it’s an experience. With its sophisticated fusion of Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary, doTERRA has mastered the art of comfort and serenity in a bottle. The fiery zest and sweet undertones of this oil cocoon me with a profound sense of warmth, grounding, and undisturbed peace. On Guard isn’t merely an oil—it’s a sensory powerhouse that captivates and soothes with every breath. There are several On Guard products for you to check with numerous uses.

  • Skin cleanser – add a few drops to Fractionated Coconut Oil.

  • A few drops in your diffuser freshens the air, and creates an energized, uplifting home or work atmosphere.
  • Add a few drops to warm water with honey for a flavourful tea or add to your morning smoothie.

On Guard is also reported to support healthy immune and cardiovascular systems.  As with most essential oils remember, research is limited. (https://www.healthline.com/health/cold-flu/on-guard-doterra). As I have said previously, one size does not fit all and like food, wine, and art – you choose what works for you.  I wish I could share the aroma with you via this blog – one day, maybe. More about how this oil can be used beyond the physical.

According to one of my sources, Essential Emotions: Process, Release, & Live Free (12th Edition) (www.essentialemotions.com), On Guard will “shield individuals from harmful threats”.  It is claimed to have protective properties extending beyond the physical level.  On Guard is also reported to be “helpful for strengthening the inner self”.  You can give this oil a try if you need help in setting boundaries, breaking away from unhealthy connections, and in learning to stand up for yourself.

Wrap Up

As you can tell, I am enamored with this oil. I am moved by scents: they lift me up, calm me down, can play with my emotions as I remember past experiences, and sometimes they cause nausea, sneezing, or I just don’t like them. My taste might not be the same as yours, but I suggest you give this one a whiff if you like spicy, warm aromas.
