I mentioned this recipe yesterday, but I’m adding this here to make it easier to find, especially since it’s such a popular recipe.
You can take 2 drops of each in a veggie capsule 4-6 times/day if you’re feeling something coming, but this is less time-consuming and safe for kids 6+. You can choose to use it on your kids, but on guard has a few ingredients that children, especially children under 2) may be sensitive to. Here’s a quick reference sheet from scentsable health for essential oils safety for children.
I actually halved this recipe and put it in a 5ml roller bottle and ended up using about half of it by the end of a my cold(a couple of days), both Steve and I had it so a quarter of a 5ml should last you for 1 cold/flu.
Also, having just a roller bottle of just oregano and on guard is handy to put on the back of your neck daily to prevent illness. Oregano is great for the immune system and on guard clears the air as well as fighting off any germs or sickness.
All of these oils come in the family physician kit. It includes 5 ml bottles of Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Oregano, Frankincense, Deep Blue®, Breathe, DigestZen®, and On Guard to help replace many over the counter and prescription medications and cleaning products. I will do an essential oil spotlight on each of these oils over time so that you can learn more about how each of them can benefit you and your family.
