You know what it feels like: that scratchy sensation in your throat that seems to appear out of nowhere. Or maybe it's even slightly painful. Either way, you know it needs attention NOW to find out if it's just an irritation, a precursor to a possible cold, or a sign of something more serious.
With Fall just around the corner, the change of seasons can bring on airborne irritants and that telltale sore throat and postnasal drip. Other causes for a sore throat range from smoke or chemical irritation to a bacterial infection that causes strep. A lot of sore throats are simply brought on by dry air or breathing with your mouth open. That's why first thing in the morning is when we often notice a dry, scratchy throat.
Here's where OnGuard essential oil comes to the rescue! I used it just this morning (really) for that very reason and my throat felt INSTANTLY better. The soreness evaporated just like that and hasn't come back. Here are the amazing oils in the OnGuard Blend: Wild Orange oil, combined with Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. No wonder it works so well! (Not to mention smelling great.) This unique, proprietary blend is specially formulated to support healthy immune function: all five oils are antibacterials and anti fungal. Clove and cinnamon are also antiseptic and antiviral.
OnGuard is a five-in-one powerful punch to kick those sore throats, colds, and coughs early on.
You can use this unique, potent blend straight from the bottle (as I did this morning, shaking a few drops on the back of the tongue) or buy it as convenient soft gels or beadlets. Personally, I recommend the direct approach on the back of the throat or sucking OnGuard Protective Throat Drops, or both!

Along with your essential oils, sip warm comforting herbal teas to soothe that sore throat, but avoid caffeine as it's an irritant. As with any symptom, if the soreness persists for more than a few days, the pain increases, or you have difficulty swallowing or a fever, see your doctor right away. (For a slight fever at home, I recommend Peppermint essential oil applied to the bottom of feet and forehead to naturally bring down a fever. This works wonders for my whole family!) For milder symptoms, OnGuard can work miracles and get you back on track fast.
