Here at Discover Your Happy we focus on all aspects of health. A major aspect of health is not being sick. I recently have discovered essential oils. I love having something I can give my baby. Honestly I'm still learning how to use them but I have yet to hear anything negative about them. For this reason we have wanted to find out more so we talked to one of our friends. She wanted to share her personal story with us:
"Sometimes as a parent you wonder if you’re having any kind of a positive impact on your kids. Are your words and teachings registering at all with them? And then. . . your kid asks for some of that “guarding oil stuff” of their own free will and choice and you know you’ve done something right. It also warms my heart when they decide to listen to Bon Jovi instead of Gangnam style.
Since November the cold and flu season has been in full force. We as parents are always looking for ways to prevent our households and ourselves from coming down with the latest virus that seems to be traveling in our circles around us! I wanted to find something to give to my family that was preventative instead of waiting until they were sick and then having to take them to the doctor. I’m happy to report that we have not been to the doctor since then, for sickness that is… Kids will be kids and we have had some visits to the InstaCare and ER but not that are related to cold or flu. But that is not to say we’ve avoided sickness completely. With little kids at home, that’s unavoidable. What is my secret you ask?? Essential Oils! I was introduced to doTerra in November and fell in love. Their oils are amazing for prevention. One of my favorites is On Guard.
On Guard is one of doTERRA’s best selling oils for good reason. This multi-use essential oil is dubbed as the “Protective Blend” toward unwanted infection, bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses. It’s like a warm, spicy shield of protection that is a strong ally for the immune system. This single essential oil contains: Wild Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary. The combination of these potent oils create a serious immune boosting punch that can both prevent an illness to take hold in the body or help one heal much more quickly from an acute attack.
Other body ailments On Guard could greatly improve include:
air pollution/airborne bacteria
cystitis/bladder infections/urinary tract issues
low blood sugar
oral conditions like cavities, halitosis, and gum disease
sore throat/throat infection/strep
all types of warts
I love this oil so much and I want to share its benefits with everyone! However, if doTerra isn’t for you, there are a lot of companies out there or you can find essential oils at Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc."
