The Season for On Guard

This is one of my favorite oil blends from doTerra.

How I use On Guard?

1. doTerra On Guard toothpaste

Since germs are easily absorbed through the mouth, I use the On Guard toothpaste.

It is a different flavored toothpaste with cinnamon, mint, and orange. I admit it was strange brushing my teeth with it at first, but now I love it!

2. On Guard beadlets

There are some days I wake up with drainage or just not feeling 100%. Then I pop a beadlet, and roughly 30 minutes later I notice that my drainage is breaking up. I am feeling so much better! I have also used it in conjunction with zicam melts. I felt like it reduced recovery time to just a week.

3. Diffuse On Guard oil blend

During fall and winter this is my favorite oil blend to diffuse! It reminds me of the smell of a spiced orange pomander ball.

4. I have also used the On Guard oil blend to make my own green cleaner.

On Guard benefits:  helps fight seasonal threats, immune support, immune function, supports healthy cardiovascular function

Yoga and Oils

During the summer, my exercise of choice is always yoga. I rotate between YouTube yoga videos and my app by Gaiam,inc.

My two resources for yoga:Yoga with Adriene and Yoga Studio App

Yes, the app is $3.99. Compared to paying for yoga classes, this is a steal! I love how you can schedule classes for your entire week, and it syncs to your calendar.

What essential oils do I use during my yoga sessions?

For me personally, I put the serenity blend or lavender oil on before doing yoga.

Essential oils for Yoga:
Hawaiian Sandalwood, Sandalwood, or Cedarwood for diffusing in the air

Serenity is great doTERRA blend for relaxation. Contains these oils: lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood, & vanilla bean extract.

A Cold in May

It is never fun to come down with a cold, especially in the warmer months of the year. Most all of my colds used to turn into sinus infections until I started using doterra oils.

How I have beat my colds with homeopathic treatments:

  1. On Guard – this is doterra’s proprietary blend for immune support
    • I take the beadlets.
    • I use my own homemade toothpaste that I made with the On Guard oil blend and lemon oil.- Recipe Here (This toothpaste is for oil pulling.)
    • I also use doterra’s On Guard toothpaste.
  2. Oregano oil capsule – I take twice a day.
  3. ZICAM
    • I take the melts every 3 hours.
    • Last dose of ZICAM before bed, I use a swab.

Diffuser Recipes

  1. Cold/Flu Bomb:
    • 1-2 drop of Melaleuca
    • 1-2 drop of Oregano
    • 1-2 drop of On Guard
    • 1 extra drop of Lemon because Oregano and Melaleuca are strong!!

For me, the symptoms that hang on are usually enough drainage to affect my ears, and I get that fun tickle in the back of my throat.

2. For my ears:
– 1-2 drops of Lavender
– 1-2 drops of Melaleuca
– 1-2 drops of Basil

For the tickle in my throat:

  • Peppermint beadlets
  • TriEase
  • Peppermint oil in a roller bottle – I can apply directly to my throat or put behind my ears.

I hope these tips help you to stay healthy all year round!

Happy Mother’s Day

My Mom’s tea cosy was a little worn out so I decided to try and make her a new one for Mother’s Day.

Turned out beautiful! #DIYteacosy


This is what I did to create the tea cosy:

Yarn: I used one skein of homespun cream yarn for the tea cosy. For the flower, I used one skein of a thick red glitter yarn. (I found the glitter yarn at Hobby Lobby.) I used black yarn – Red Heart yarn for the middle pom-pom.

  1. Pattern for tea cosy (used a I/5.5 size hook)
  2. Pattern for petals of Flower – I crocheted multiple strands of flower petals until there was no cream yarn showing through (used an N/9 size hook)
  3. Then I used a tiny pom-pom (in black yarn) for the middle of the flower.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! #HappyMothersDay

I started using doterra oils about two years ago when my mom ordered the Family Physician Kit. This kit has Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Oregano, Frankincense, Deep Blue®, Breathe, DigestZen®, and On Guard.

I have chronic sinus headaches and my seasonal allergies…I am really allergic to mountain cedar, ragweed, and oak.

For the first month, I was completely skeptical! Would not touch any of the oils!

One day, I had massive sinus pressure, and I had already taken sudafed. The medicine had not made much of a difference in the way I was feeling so I decided to try the peppermint oil. Okay! Wow! I nearly got instant relief!

Peppermint, Lemon, and Lavender oil is the typical allergy blend. How can you use these oils for your allergies?

Here are the ways I use these oils:
1. In an oil diffuser.
2. Put individual oils in a roller bottle or mix all three together in one roller bottle (Whatever works best for you.). Then I use these oils on my temples and sometimes over the bridge of my nose.
3. Doterra has an oil capsule (called TriEase) of peppermint, lemon, and lavendar. I take this daily with my normal allergy pill.

Mentioned above are just a few of the ways that you can use these essential oils to help your allergies.
