Body - Add 3-5 drops to 30ml of carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil or Little Pot of Wonder, and rub onto the bottoms of your feet in the morning and evening to protect against germs.
Add a couple of drops on a tissue to inhale when you have a blocked nose.
Mind - Add 2-3 drops into a nice warm bath when you're feeling under the weather. This medicinal blend will help.

Put one drop in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and inhale.
Inhalation of this blend is one of the best ways to benefit from its awesome properties. When we inhale essential oils, the highly sensitive cells in the back of our nostrils are stimulated which sends signals straight to the brain, so relax and inhale deep.
Cleaning - A perfect addition to natural home cleaning.
Add 15-20 drops into your spray mop water container with water, or mop bucket for cleaning the floors.
Add a couple of drops to boiling water and soak your dishcloths.
If you have an unfragranced eco cleaner, then you can add some drops to that to use as a surface cleaner.
DIY hand sanitiser -
- 100ml of distilled water or cooled-down boiled water, into a spray bottle.
- A teaspoon of vodka or rubbing alcohol. (this helps mix the oils with water and also preserves)
- 15-20 drops of Natural Guard pure blend
Remember to always shake the bottle before spraying 3-4 pumps onto your hands.
You can also use it to clean worktop surfaces with too!!
