I’m so excited to help to guide you through your essential oil experience! These are my top 2 oils to use daily to help support a robust immune system. You’ll want to enhance your experience by limiting your sugar and alcohol intake, eating plenty of colourful vegetables (especially orange coloured ones!), and getting plenty of rest.


On Guard is doTERRA’s most popular blend – known as the Protective blend, and for good reason … its superpowers are supporting the immune system and eliminating pathogens. When you feel a tickle in your throat, or like your immune system needs a little extra love, let this oil be the first thing you reach for. OnGuard supports healthy immune function, protects against environmental threats, boosts mood and energy, promotes healthy circulation and respiratory function, and is incredibly high in antioxidants. It’s a powerhouse blend is in an entire line products such as hand spray, hand soap, toothpaste, mouthwash + laundry detergent. Watch the video below to see the entire OnGuard line.


This blend (called Easy Air in Canada) has a beautiful way of teaching you to embrace life through breath. It invites you to let go (exhale) and receive (inhale), deepening the connection between your physical body and to life. This remarkable blend of essential oils promotes clear breathing and healthy respiratory function. Think of this oil as your Vicks rub … minus all the toxic chemicals.


How to use the oils:

These essential oils support healthy immune and respiratory function, protect against environmental threats, and support the body’s natural antioxidant defenses. Look to these plant allies to support your body as you move through transition – whether that’s through new seasons, new environments, or transitional periods in your life when your immune system feels suppressed.


  • Diffuse 2-3 drops at bedtime for supporting deeper, more clear breathing.

  • Add 10 drops to a roller bottle of carrier oil and roll it on your chest, bottom of feet or upper lip as needed. (doTERRA also makes a rollerbottle)

  • Put 2 drops in a mug of hot water. Place a towel over your head and breathe in the steam from the mug to open up a stuffy nose. You can also apply a drop right to the bridge of the nose.

  • Apply to your chest and/or upper lip before exercising to invigorate and enhance breathing during your workout.

  • T-shirt tent: Great when travelling or in a confined space with stagnant air (plane). Massage a drop into your chest and pull your shirt up over your nose + breathe in.

  • Place a drop in your palm, rub the palms together and take a deep breath from your cupped hands when you need a little pick-me-up. Supporting healthy airways will improve your concentration.


  • Whenever you need an immune boost, simply add a drop to your hand, rub your hands together + deeply inhale for 5 breaths.

  • Sore throat coming on? Add 1 drop to a little shot glass of water. Gargle + swallow until the glass is empty

  •  Add 2 drops to carrier oil or lotion and massage into chest + feet on days you feel run down.

  • Diffuse 2-3 drops once a day to clean the air. I like to do this when the kids come home from school or while falling asleep to support healing during the night.

  • Create an effective all-purpose cleaner by adding 5 drops to 1 cup of water in a spray bottle. Great for spraying on blankets, decorative pillows etc.

  • Soak toothbrushes in a cup of water with 3 drops OnGuard to sanitize them weekly.
