Today’s Healthy Tip With Lemon- On Guard- Melaleuca

Happy Monday-

Hope you are taking measures to stay healthy and well.

Our family of six always has something going on with their body and I love resorting to doTerra essential oils for solutions towards their healing.

Here are the recent physical issues of the day:

Sore Throat and Skin rash.

Hubby has a sore throat, my Essential Life book recommends the following remedy; drink water with lemon and On Guard essential oil, diffuse the same oils, and apply On Guard to bottom of feet.  Lemon kills germs and On Guard Protective Blend helps strengthen immunity.

On Guard- WHAT IS IT?

doTERRA On Guard, a proprietary essential oil blend, provides a natural and effective alternative for immune support.*  doTERRA On Guard protects against environmental and seasonal threats with essential oils known for their positive effects on the immune system.* doTERRA On Guard can be taken internally on a daily basis to maintain healthy immune function and support healthy cardiovascular function.* When diffused, doTERRA On Guard helps purify the air, and can be very energizing and uplifting.

Son has a skin rash on neck, behind ear and on arm.  Recommendation is to rub Melaleuca 

Melaleuca- WHAT IS IT?

More commonly known as “Tea Tree,” Melaleuca essential oil has over 92 different compounds and limitless applications. The leaves of the Melaleuca tree were used by the Aborigines of Australia for centuries. They would crush the leaves and inhale the oil to promote feelings of clear breathing and apply the leaves directly to the skin for a cooling effect. Melaleuca is best known for its purifying properties. It can be used to cleanse and purify the skin and nails and to support a healthy complexion. Taken internally, Melaleuca promotes healthy immune function*   Melaleuca is frequently used on occasional skin irritations to soothe the skin and diffusing Melaleuca will help purify and freshen the air.

For my son’s rash, which was on his neck, chest and arm, I applied a carrier oil (COCONUT OIL) to red area and then took two drops of Melaleuca and rubbed over the same area.  The rash dissipated in three days.
