Onguard Protecting Throat Drops

on_guard_lozenges134x200bA few months ago my 5 year old son and I were in the Doterra Corporate office.  The reception area had a sample bowl of what looked like light brown mints or cough drops.  I tried one and handed one to my son.   They were delicious!  I asked the receptionist what they were and she explained that they were like cough drops with the Onguard Essential Oil blend in them.    As we were having this conversation my little son was this release.  I have knocked out many colds and illnesses quickly with Onguard.  I was coming down with a sinus infection and drank a couple of drops of Onguard in water for a few days and it went away before it had really started.  Onguard boosts the immune system but, didn’t taste that great when I just put it in water.  This is a delicious easy way to get that immune support from Onguard and you will not have trouble getting your children to take it this way either.   With the winter season coming and especially with the extra worries about flus help give your family that immune support with these great Onguard Protecting Throat Drops. 

On Guard™ Protecting Throat Drops

Don’t let flu season catch you off guard! dōTERRA®’s On Guard™ Protecting Throat Drops provide a convenient way to benefit from On Guard’s immune-supporting properties. With all-natural organic cane juice and organic brown rice syrup, these drops help defend against pathogenic microbes of the mouth and throat, support fixed and mobile immune function, and can help calm and soothe dry, scratchy throats.

For external use, oregano essential oil is valued as a strong analgesic and antirheumatic agent. Read more »

dōTERRA Vitamins

llwpackMy husband and I have been taking the dōTERRA Vitamins in the lifelong wellness pack for several months now.   I can’t believe the difference we have both felt while taking these supplements.  Because of the increase in energy that I feel I have been able to start jogging in the morning again.  This is something I haven’t had the energy to do for several years.  I am also much more motivated everyday and accomplish a lot more.  I feel 10 years younger!  My husband has felt the same increase in energy.   We had a week that we ran out and were waiting for our next shipment to come.  We didn’t think it would be a big deal to wait but, we both noticed how much less energy we felt!    We both felt like we were just dragging.   I have never felt such a huge difference on any other supplements I have taken.  My husband feels the same way and the only difference has been the supplements we are taking.  We will make sure that we never run out of these vitamins again! 

The dōTERRA Lifelong Wellness Pack includes three different supplements:

Essential Oil Omega Complex

dōTERRA’s EO Mega is unique formula of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade(TM) essential oils clove, frankincense, thyme, cumin, wild orange, peppermint, ginger, and German chamomile, and a proprietary blend of marine and land-sourced omega fatty acids from flaxseed, pomegranate seed, evening primrose, cranberry seed, and concentrated fish oils.

Microplex VM also contains a Tummy Taming(TM) blend of peppermint, ginger, and caraway to calm the stomach and a blend of digestive enzyme to support nutrient metabolism.

There are several ways to purchase the doTerra supplements.    The most economical way to try these supplements would be to sign up as a consultant.  Even if I didn’t ever sign up another consultant it would be worth it to me to be signed up as a consultant myself just to get my discount on my 30 day vitamin supply each month.  I was working with a dieting coach that is always looking for the best supplements for his clients.  He was amazed at the great price I was getting for these outstanding vitamins.  If you sign up as a consultant and put the Lifelong Wellness Pack on your autoship each month you can get all three of these supplements for only $64.50.   I actually get two Lifelong Wellness Packs each month on my autoship order one for me and one for my husband.   The autoship is not a problem because I want to receive these vitamins each month and I can stop the shipment at any time I want to after an initial 90 day commitment.    If you are interested in trying these great vitamins just choose one of the two enrollment kits that includes the vitamins and choose to put however many Lifelong Wellness Kits you need on your autoship.  If you don’t love these supplements just cancel the autoship order after the initial 90 commitment.  But, I know you will feel the same difference I have and will not want to be without your dōTERRA Vitamins ever again!   Sign Up As A Consultant Today

Not convinced and don’t know if you want a 90 day commitment?  Sign up as a consultant and receive the Lifelong Wellness kit in one of the enrollment kits and add them to autoship when you like them later or explore the other purchase options.  There will be no additional commitments if you do not see the same difference I have.

Fighting Sore Throats!

15ml_lemonMy sister-in-law gets strep throat every year with her children.  This year her children got it and she could feel a sore throat coming on herself.  My brother had her gargle  a  lemon and oregano essential oil mixture with water.  This is the only time she has ever not gotten strep throat with her children!  Here is how the treatment works, At the first sign of a sore throat ingest a drop of Lemon Essential Oil in water and gargle with 2 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and 1 drop of Oregano Essential Oil mixed in 1/4 cup of water.  Do not swallow the Lemon/Oregano mixture.  Repeat the gargle every hour until soreness subsides.  A drop of Lemon Essential Oil mixed with a teaspoon of honey can also help fight sore throats.   What a great tool for mothers to use to fight sore throats just as they are starting!

Quick Help For Coughs

15ml_breatheA short time ago my mom was concerned about the persistent cough she could hear coming from my dad in the next room.   She decided to see if she could help with their new collection of doTerra essential oils.   After a little research, she put a few drops of eucalyptus, peppermint and cypress into her hand and rubbed it on his chest.  She then covered his chest with a warm cloth.    She said it was amazing how quickly his cough stopped!  I remember a similar treatment from my mom as a child.  I would have a bad cold and she would rub Vicks Vapor Rub on my chest and cover it with a warm cloth.  I remember feeling a lot better and feeling very loved and cared for.  In the years since, I have not used Vicks Vapor Rub on my children because of  I have been told that some of the ingredients may not be safe.  But, I am excited to be able to use this method with my children from now on!  My Mom could have used the doTerra Breathe blend to help my father as well.    There are several ways to make sure that you have these essential oils in your collection.  If you are just starting out with essential oils you could purchase the doTerra Dr. Mom Kit which includes the Breathe blend as well as several other essential oils that every mom should have on hand for her family!  See my post from yesterday for more information on the Dr. Mom Kit.
