January is the perfect time to be talking about this month’s featured oil, the Protective Blend: On Guard. Three years ago, right around this time, I needed to break up with the chemicals in my home that were affecting my lungs while dealing with Whooping Cough. At the time, I was only investigating EO’s to help my mom. Learning that these oils could replace all of the cleaners in my home, plus the added bonus of getting support for my immune system rather than irritating my lungs, I was all in.
This beautiful oil is made from orange, clove, cinnamon, rosemary and eucalyptus. A spicy and warm scent that’s lovely to diffuse in the cold winter months.
I love the idea of being able to clean my teeth, hands, floors and countertops with the same non-toxic EO knowing that there is no harm being done within my household whatsoever. I feel protected when I leave my home and use the sanitizing mist or soft gels too.
When I first started using the oils, I was making all of the concoctions myself. Now I order my toothpaste, mouthwash, foaming hand soap, and concentrated cleaner - which I mix in reusable glass spray bottles - when I need them.
If you are looking for a way to detox this winter, this is a great place to start. You can help your family and the planet by using products distilled directly from Mother Earth.
Have I mentioned that since using these oils I haven’t had more than a 24-hour cold or sore throat? Coincidence? I think not.

Here’s to a happy and Healthy New Year!
