RECIPES & REMEDIES
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit. Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements. We have gathered here some of the best remedies designed by our team. Note the icons next to the remedies for quick reference on their properties and uses.

20 Oregano 40 Lemon 30 On Guard This is a great remedy for the onset of an illness. When you feel the aches or scrathchy throat coming, its time to start! Apply on throat, behind ears, and bottom of feet. *Because this mix contains oregano, it should be used when someone is getting sick for 5-7 days. Oregano can be hard on the liver when used for long periods of time. DoTERRA's On Guard blend should be used along the spine for prevention of illness.
Almost empty bottle of OnGuard, (Just a few drops left, the ones you can’t get out of the bottle). 5 drops Coconut Oil The rest water Put on a sprayer top Shake Well Spray on hands. Great for backpacks and purses. I have found that if you add much more coconut oil then its too greasy to be applicable and to much OnGuard your food tastes like OnGuard and kids have a greater risk of getting this in their eyes.
