It’s that time my friends. Cold and flu season is upon us. I absolutely despise sinus crud, winter colds, stomach bugs, and coughs of every sort. Germs are the enemy! This time of year I turn into commando general. No kidding: it’s a full on battle. I plan to win. My main weapon? dōTERRA Essential Oils.

Here is my strategy against germ warfare. I’m proactive. I use OnGuard liberally. I diffuse it in the air, clean with it, drink it in a tea, and use it in place of hand sanitizer. Forget that it smells sooooooo good, this little product packs a punch. It’s ingredients include wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary.  Historical uses of the oils in this blend include antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory, and anticatarrhal. This is my main antiseptic/anti-infectious weapon.

If one of my little soldiers (it’s war, people, get with it-war I tell you) succumbs to one of those nasty little evil cold/flu buggers, I have weapons for that as well. My go to bullet to stop icky germs in their tracks is a honey and essential oil tea. It is super quick and easy to prepare.


Warm 6-8 ounces of water in a glass container

Add 1-3 teaspoons of honey (to taste, really)

Add two drops of each: OnGuard Blend and Lemon Oil.

Stir with a stainless steel of glass straw and enjoy. I always drink from the straw as the clove oil in the OnGuard can numb your lips. Since essential oils can draw out toxins, I never ever use them in plastic cups and straws.
