This powerful protective blend is probably my favorite oil. It is a combination of wild orange, clove, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, and rosemary. Protective blend is an effective alternative to synthetic options for immune support and supports the body’s natural antioxidant defenses.
How we use it:
1. Stay Well–Everyone in my family gets a couple drops of protective blend on the bottom of their feet every night to support our immune systems. Since starting that two years ago our illness rate has dropped to practically zero.
2. Flying Germs–we often diffuse protective blend in the winter to kill germs and bacteria in the air. It smells nice too, kind of like Christmas. For several years I’ve been using this hard-working diffuser. It’s cheap enough to have one in every bedroom in your house.
3. Oil Pulling–This is an ancient ayurvedic remedy to promote oral health. I use coconut oil with a couple drops of protective blend. Benefits reported include reducing harmful bacteria in your mouth, reducing bad breath, whitening teeth, reducing plaque and gingivitis, and lessening tooth sensitivity. For more information visit my post on How To Oil Pull.
4. Cleaning Power–Protective blend also makes a fantastic cleaner. I sometimes replace the oils in my All-Purpose Cleaner or Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizer with equal amounts of protective blend.
NOTE: I only use essential oils that are of the highest quality and purity available. My favorite brand is tested in 5 different ways by an independent lab to ensure it meets the highest possible standards. Whatever brand you use just make sure it says For Aromatic, Topical and Dietary Use on the bottle.
