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.

After I had my 2nd baby Tristan I became very depressed and then got pregnant again soon after with my 3rd baby Layla and became even more depressed I was having a really hard time mentally. So I started putting 1 drop of Frankincense, 1 drop Lavender and 1 drop Ylang Ylang on my heart everyday and I kid you not, not even 2 weeks later I was completely fine! Better than fine!

Picking The Best Diffuser

~Doterra Essential Oils
  Available Here~ 

Diffusers  are so nice to have when using Essential Oils. You put a few drops of your favorite Essential Oils inside and let it do all the work. They are great for cleaning the air, if anyone is sick, if you want your house to smell good, or if you want to promote health, happiness, or well being. They are so nice to have in each room especially when kids are sick.

By enabling a complete combination of natural water and botanic essential oil through the effect of supersonic wave, these products breaks up essential oil into extremely fine micro-particles and releases the active ingredients within, bringing about the natural pharmaceutical effect of aromatherapy by way of human respiratory tract and realizing excellent functionality of enhancing health calming and soothing anxiety and beautifying and moisturizing skin.
Diffusers are best used with DoTERRA Essential Oils because they are the the only Essential Oils that are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade which means they are the purest on the market and you should only use the purest.

Here are my favorite diffusers and their descriptions.

Whisper premium diffuser

This is truly a worry-free product!

Product Description:

The Whisper premium diffuser is a state-of-the-art system that uses water and ultrasonic vibration (2.5 million vibrations per second) to break essential oils into tiny microparticles, dispersing the oil in a fine mist. 
These tiny particles are more easily absorbed by the lungs for a greater therapeutic effect on the body, mind, and spirit.
The Whisper diffuser uses a revolutionary, patented technology that makes it possible to diffuse even the thickest essential oils (such as Patchouli, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang) that won't work in many other diffusers. 

Watch Video Here
*Available Here*
The oil never touches the moving parts, so you never need to worry about your diffuser clogging or parts gumming up. Its flexible liner increases the life of the diffuser by preventing contact of the oils and the ultrasonic vibrating disc. 
The cup is designed for continuous contact with oils, withstanding corrosion from even your strongest oils like lemon and cinnamon.
This diffuser uses no heat, which is important because too much heat can chemically alter essential oils and lessen their therapeutic benefits.
You'll be amazed at how quiet this diffuser is! Even sitting right next to it, all you will hear is the occasional soft sound of moving water.
Unlike many other diffusers, the Whisper diffuser has no fragile glass parts to break or refill pads to purchase. 
Cleanup is a breeze! Just wipe the plastic oil cup clean or replace it when it gets dirty. (The diffuser comes with a supply of 6 oil cups; additional cups are sold separately.)

The Whisper diffuser is wonderful at conserving your expensive oils. Just 2-6 drops of oil can fill a large room with aromatic goodness for hours! The innovative two-way timer lets you continuously scent your environment, or set an intermittent cycle (such as 15 seconds on, 30 seconds off) to make your oils last for as long as 9 hours.
The diffuser has soft blue night-lights that can be turned on or off. 
Oil cup is made from highest grade PET-1 plastic, and is BPA-free.
An automatic shut-off feature activates when the water in the base reaches the minimum level, preventing damage to the internal mechanisms. 

This diffuser is the most positively reviewed diffuser by customers! It is easy to use, simple to clean, very quiet, conserves oils, can run up to 9 hours, has inexpensive replacement parts, and lasts a long time.
Size: 8" tall x 3½" wide x 3½" deep.

What is included? 
This item includes 1 diffuser, 1 timer, 5 replacement cups, and instructions. Also comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
Note: The first time you use your new Whisper diffuser, fill the base and cup to the fill lines with tap water, set the timer to the "50m" setting, and let the diffuser run until it begins to produce a good quantity of mist. This will cleanse the mechanism of any oils left over from the manufacturing process. It may take up to 1 hour to complete this cleaning process.

The video below describes many of the features that set this diffuser apart from other diffusers. (We have also created 2 other videos: a user guide and frequently asked questions video.

Camp Wanders Healing Salve

My Mother-in Law makes a wonderful salve I love it so much I use it everyday. I love using it on my face, neck, hands, feet, legs all over my body! It is so great completely natural absolutely no chemicals, and has DoTERRA Essential Oils for healing the skin any place on the body. I got this from her blog

All Purpose Healing Salve Recipe:

1/2  Cup Coconut Oil
1/2  Cup Olive Oil
2  T. Beeswax Pastilles
20  drops doTERRA Lavender
10  drops doTERRA Lemon

Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer as well as antibacterial.  Olive oil has lots of anti-oxidants, including Hydroxytyrosol as well as anti-inflammatory properties.
Lavender soothes and heals, Lemon cleanses and disinfects while Melaleuca is antibacterial and antifungal!

Melt the coconut, olive oil and beeswax in a warm bath, stirring with a knife every few minutes until melted.

Add the essential oils. 

Stir, then pour into glass jars of your choice and let cool.

Put a paper towel over the jars while cooling and wait to cover with lids until completely cooled down.

  Use small jars so you can keep several around the house and have travel sizes handy.

Here's a list of ways that All Purpose Healing Balm has been used...with great success I might add :)

1.  Crazy good hand moisturizer!  
2.  Amazing on dry, cracked heels and crusty elbows.
3.  All round moisturizer for dry climes.  I use it as a body   moisturizer and even on my face, sparingly!
4.  Soothes and heals chapped lips or any chappy place.
5.  Soothes welts, burns and sunburn!
6.  Great for diaper rash.
7.  Keep your dogs in mind!  
8.  Antiseptic properties make it great for cuts and scrapes!
9.  Wonderful for elderly folks and their thin, fragile skin.
10. Great for scaly scalp!

Let me know how it turns out and how you are using it!
