I created an Immune Supporting Essential Oil blend. I love me some OnGuard® oil. If you’re new to essential oils and haven’t heard about OnGuard this is what one company says about their blend:
OnGuard essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals they used while robbing the dead and dying . . . crafted in the spirit of that legendary combination. When taken internally, it supports healthy immune function*, and it includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help maintain a healthy respiratory system.* When taken as a dietary supplement, it is an ideal complement to a daily wellness regimen.*
Personally I do not take oils internally, I’d rather put them (diluted) on the soles of my feet or diffuse them in the air. But I can tell you first hand that this oil is excellent and most definitely “supports healthy immune function.”
But here’s the thing, OnGuard oil is pricey—I mean super pricey. $32 for a 15mL bottle (wholesale) . And while I occasionally get the oil when on sale, most of the time I’d rather make my own and save money. So I made this immune supporting essential oil blend.
DIY Immune Supporting Oil
Instead of using a pre-mixed oil blend, I created my own immune boosting oil. I consulted a few online recipes and used personal experimentation and the sniff test (did my blend smell the same as the pre-mixed blend?). I’m really pleased with this immune supporting essential oil blend. Quite frankly, I can’t tell much of a difference between this and the pre-blended oil.
The cost break down for this oil really depends on what brand of essential oils you choose. The final cost when I made this oil blend was a little under $26 for 15 ml compared to $32 if you bought it. Quite a savings, right?
So without further ado, my immune supporting essential oil blend:
Immune Supporting Essential Oil Blend
- 20 Drops Clove Oil
- 18 Drops Lemon Essential Oil or sweet orange oil
- 10 Drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
- 12 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
- 5 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
- It's tedious but counting drops really is the best way to combine oils.
- Store in a dark glass bottle. Mix as much or as little as you like.
- Do not apply directly to the skin without carrier oil.
- Use extreme caution before taking internally.
- Oil is also excellent when diffused.
