Recommended Usage



Joy  D - Recently I was experiencing irritation with my eyes and couldn't figure out why until I thought about my makeup and especially the brushes I used. I cleaned them with On Guard soap and the irritation stopped immediately with the next application of make up.

I knew you could use On Guard with water to clean my tooth brush but never thought of the benefit of cleaning my make up and hair brushes and combs.  I just applied the soap to the make up brushes and washed individually and the hair brushes I always cleaned but added a couple drops of Lemon and On Guard and let them soak for a while.

Linda - We have been using the foaming On Guard hand soap since it came out and we no longer have our former dry itchy hands from using chemical based perfumed hand soaps.  I hope doTERRA will eventually come out with a deodorant.  Wouldn't that be wonderful for all of us!


Betty - I have a friend who's dog has a problem with a toenail.  The vet says yeast and/or  fungus. The toenail is just flaking off and kind of disintegrating.  The vet said he might have to pull the nail and take the pad too.  My friend definitely doesn't want to go that route. I know you'll have an oil idea for that. 

Carol - I used On Guard™ for fungus on my Standard Poodle.  I used a few drops once per day.  It took one week for the fungus to shrivel up to nothing, and it was HUGE when I started.  She even had some small ones starting on her face, and those took only three days to dry up into scabs.  My groomer was so impressed that she got some oils.
