Where Can I Buy doTERRA On Guard Oil? Price/Cost?

Doterra Products are generally NOT sold in retail stores. If you know a Wellness Advocate in your area buying through them is generally the best option. However, if not, the next most convenient methods of purchasing would be online through either Doterra's online shop or through an online 3rd Party Marketplace such as Amazon (where you may or may not be purchasing from an authorized Wellness Advocate.) This site is monetized through Amazon affiliate links and others and we do receive a small compensation (at not additional cost to you), should you decide to make a purchase by clicking through most of our links.

Can I Use For:

Sore Throat?

While doTERRA's On Guard Protective blend is specifically formulated to help support and bolster the immune system which works to prevent sickness, a strong immune system will work to more quickly relieve and eliminate symptoms of sickness such as sore throat. Also, doTERRA includes within it's arsenal the On Guard Protecting Throat drops which can be especially helpful and offer relief when experiencing a cough and/or sore throat.


When experiencing coughs you can use On Guard oil, in addition to the On Guard throat drops, to support your immune system in battling seasonal threats. We also recommend using doTERRA Breathe oil and other products to help keep your airway clear and promote unrestrictred breathing.

Head and Chest Colds?

Many doTERRA users have affirmed that using On Guard oil helped them get over their head colds or chest cold quickly. While we were unable to find any scientific studies where this has tested, we are left to assume that the support to the immune system provided by On Guard may have had a hand to play. 


As with the other types of sickness listed above, many have also asserted that On Guard oil has assisted them in preventing and rapidly recovering from the flu. Once again, while we cannot make this claim as we don't have any official documented studies to back this up, this claim does seem to be very common among doTERRA users.

Is It Safe:

During Pregnancy/While Nursing?

There are no known concerns with using On Guard while pregnant or nursing. We would just advise that you follow the normal use guidelines.

For  Kids Use?

While this blend is not specifically geared towards children, Doterra products including the On Guard Protective blend, are generally safe for all ages. As with all potent oils, it's best to first test a small amount to check for individual adverse reactions for any user, but especially children. Some kids may have extra sensitive skin and the On Guard oil may need to be diluted, but it  is formulated so that most people can use as recommended without discomfort.

doTERRA On Guard Oil Review

Doterra On Guard uses five essential oils that work together to create a powerful and versatile infection-fighting blend. Each ingredient in the blend possesses certain characteristics that it contributes to the whole. For instance, all five possess antibacterial properties that work together to fight infections and strengthen the immune system in consumers. Doterra On Guard, as a result, offers consumers a wide range of benefits. Perhaps the primary of these is its ability to prevent and fight illnesses of all kinds, from sore throats and colds to the flu. The blend can be used at the first onset of symptoms to help drive away the germs causing infection. The most common means of doing so include taking the drops orally, or massaging them into various parts of the body. Illnesses can be prevented before they even begin to cause symptoms by the application of the blend to the soles of the feet or by being ingested in a pill.

In addition to its use as an illness-fighting powerhouse, Doterra On Guard can also be used in a wide variety of applications to clean and disinfect. For instance, when added to water in a spray bottle, the blend can be used to clean surfaces such as countertops. Alternatively, a few drops added to the washer can help to clean and disinfect laundry, and when diffused can eliminate germs in the surrounding air. It can be combined with water to form a mouthwash, or fractionated coconut oil to cleanse the hands. It can be added to the dishwasher for cleaner dishes and to mop water for cleaner floors. As a result, it serves as a natural alternative to the harsh chemicals often found in synthetic cleaners.

Doterra On Guard is offered in a variety of forms to make it more convenient for the consumer to use it in certain applications. For instance, it is available as a toothpaste, hand wash, laundry detergent, capsules, and beadlets. Consumers may also create their own mouthwash, massage oils, and other forms of the oil for themselves, making Doterra On Guard an extremely versatile product. Regardless of the form in which it is used, Doterra On Guard offers consumers a powerful and effective way to fight illness and infection of all kinds.
