About the On Guard®: Protective Blend
As one of dōTERRA‘s best-selling blends, On Guard® protects against environmental and seasonal threats, with essential oils known for their support of healthy immune function. It’s versatility makes it ideal for use in many types of products. Its warm, spicy, camphoraceous, woody aroma offers you a fragrant, natural and effective way to protect against environmental threats, clean surfaces and fill your house with its energizing and uplifting aroma.
On Guard® can be taken internally, on a daily basis, to maintain healthy immune function (see the On Guard+ Softgels and On Guard® Protecting Throat Drops), as well as used on surfaces throughout the home, as non-toxic cleaner. When diffused, On Guard® helps purify the air, supports healthy respiratory function, and can be very energizing and uplifting. Applied topically, On Guard® provides cleansing and purifying benefits, while promoting healthy circulation.
The unique aroma of dōTERRA‘s On Guard®: Protective Blend comes from a combination of the certified pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils of wild orange (Citrus sinensis), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Eucalyptus radiata and rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis).
