The beauty of essential oils is the variety of ways you can use them. These are by no means the only uses, but it gives you an idea of the variety available!

Areas for On Guard

DENTAL AND GUMS – your Mouth will thank you!

After Dental Work – Try swishing On Guard with a bit of water after dental work.

Teeth & Gums – You can also apply On Guard directly to your teeth and gums (or add a drop to your toothpaste) to soothe irritated gums.

Toothbrushes – For a clean toothbrush, store it overnight in a small glass of water with 3-5 drops of On Guard.


Pancakes – add 2-3 drops to your pancake mix.

Smoothies and Hot Drinks – love the addition of On Guard for that extra burst of flavour and aids with immune support.

Soaking Fruit – cut up an apple and let is soak in water and a few drop of On Guard. Perfect way to provide another immune support option.


Be Naturally On Guard, All Day – Let On Guard assist with immune support and maintenance. A popular way to use On Guard is to add a few drops to a Veggie Capsule and swallow.

Booster Drink – Some people amp up their Zinc or Vitamin C intake (via orange juice) every autumn. If this is you, add a drops of On Guard to your juice for added protection. Or looking to add to a hot drink … simply add to your cocoa!

Rollerball – Add to a rollerball with carrier oil and rub on your feet each morning to support a healthy immune system.

Sniffle Season Relief – Diffuse On Guard Protective Blend anytime you are concerned about “what’s going around” schools, sports arenas, gyms, any type of crowded venues.

Sinus Gunk – Put 2-3 drops of On Guard and 1-2 drop of Breathe/Easy Air in a mug of hot water and breathe in to aid with breaking up the gunk in your sinuses.

Sore Throat – Mix a few drops of On Guard Protective Blend with 2 drops Lemon essential oil and honey or agave nectar in a teaspoon to soothe your throat during the winter.

Throat Gargle – Mix salt water and a drop of On Guard, gargle for 1 minute.


Air Filters – Diffusing can work miracles, but you can also put a few drops of On Guard on your car’s cabin air filter or home air filters to obliterate dank, stale filtered air…right from the duct!

Carpets – Add 15 drops of On Guard Protection Blend to a cup of corn starch or baking soda. Mix, sprinkle and rake on carpet then allow it to sit for up to an hour. Then, vacuum it clean!

Garbages – Got a Pull-Out Kitchen Cabinet Garbage Bin? Garbage inside a dark cabinet is an ideal breeding ground for horrific odours. When you take out the garbage, spray down your cabinet with On Guard and water. On Guard Cleaner Concentrate is also excellent for this purpose.

Laundry – Add a few drops to each of your dryer balls for a fresh laundry with no harsh chemicals.

Miscellaneous Locations – Sharing Is Caring … But Not Always! A few drops of On Guard in spray bottle with water works wonders on grimy doorknobs, hand railings, musical instruments (piano keys), and counter tops. Share germs no more!

Offices – Your cell phone, your computer keyboards, mice, other devices … live with germs …pull out that spray bottle again and gently wipe a misted cloth.

Oven/Store – Eradicate that Oven Cleaner Smell. Caked on black oven gunk does not easily come off. After your oven’s self-clean cycle or if you use a chemical cleaner spray, spray a mix of water, On Guard and Lemon essential oil onto the oven interior clear up greasy smells.

Rub-A-Tub Tub … in a pleasing way – Mix 5-6 drops on On Guard Protection Blend with a half cup of baking soda to clean your bath tub and skip all of the harsh, bleaching chemicals.

Vehicle steering wheels and gear shifts  – Use a spray bottle filled with water and On Guard, easy, simple and always there for you.


Gym Machines will Thank You – Before climbing on to that sweaty vinyl at the gym, spray it with On Guard and water. Wipe down like you mean it. Your sweaty comrades will thank you.

Grocery cart handles – Great spray location. Healthier for you for sure!

Travelling – Be Protected On-The-Go. Traveling to the wide open corners of the world often leaves you without hand sanitizer handy. Make your own by mixing 5 tablespoons aloe vera gel, 4 tablespoons water, 1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E oil and 8-10 drops On Guard Protective Blend in a small squeeze bottle. Violá!


Help For Your Speaking Docket? If you’re a ‘close talker’ or public speaker, create a protective mouth rinse by adding a drop on On Guard to 4-6 oz. of water, gargle and pep up to your delivery.

Shaking a lot of people’s hands?  Great way to protect yourself. Spray a mister bottle on your hands.
