Often times when our students stream out of class in their yoga stupor, they ask, “what is that amazing scent?!” The answer is always the same…it’s our doTerra oils. The only thing is that besides smelling heavenly, these oils are miraculous in their healing properties. With success we have treated our MWJ friends for concussions, anxiety, colds and flus, menopause and pms issues…the list goes on and on. Below are three of our most popular picks:
ON GUARD: Protective Blend
For protection against virus, bacteria, and other nasties, use On Guard. A blend of wild orange, clove bud, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary oil it fights the good fight along with your immune system. It is not about the strength of the bug, but the strength of the host (you). Why have some people over the ages survived dangerous illness while others our decimated…you immune system. LOVE it, nurture it, nourish it, and if you are feeling the beginning of a flu or cold bug fight, bring out the On Guard. Then, gargle and swallow with a few drops well mixed in water, a capsule full every few hours, or applied directly to aching glands or head. Better yet, apply to the bottom of your feet during cold/flu season or while traveling, before you go to bed. (Feet are an awesome receptor for oils). One of MWJ’s friends is swearin’ by On Guard Throat Drops…got her through the holidays in spite of being a teeny bit under the weather…but never down for the count!
doTerra On Guard Throat Drops quickly made their way into my heart the evening they entered my world. Feeling sick and run-down, I tried one and instantly I felt my whole body warm up and snuggle itself from the inside. As an Acupuncturist, I also know that warming herbs are deeply nourishing during the cold weather, especially when we’re fighting off a pathogen (aka getting sick). The herbs in doTerra’s On Guard Throat Drops help our immune system naturally kick out whatever is attempting to invade our delicate system, all while honoring mother nature’s innate wisdom. For my personal life, I simply can’t get enough of these! – Caroline Grace Ashurst, L.Ac., M.Ac.
BREATHE: Respiratory Blend
If you or a loved one has come down with a cold, or experiences asthma, lung, or sinus issues, we hope that you will consider Breathe, an incredibly effective approach to clear airways and calm your bronchi!
Everyone experiences a respiratory challenge occasionally and Breathe is a perfect way to ease breathing and clear airways. Breathe is a remarkable blend of CPTG®(certified pure therapeutic grade) essential oils which combine to do just that, help you breathe easier.

Its pleasant aroma is calming to the senses and perfect for night time diffusion allowing for restful sleep. For aromatic or topical use.
My daughter Laila was congested and waking up coughing almost hourly one night around Christmas time. The next night I gave her a warm bath and then used a few drops of the breathe oil mixed in with some massage oil- I rubbed it all over her chest and put a few small drops in each of her ears (tip courtesy of Paige’s mama!). I did this for two nights and she got better and better each night. And I really enjoyed the aroma myself. It’s powerful, wonderful stuff. – Emily Sadri RN, Doula, and Yoga Teacher
SOLACE: Hormone balancer
A topical roll on blend to sail ladies through their monthly, even works on men’s hormonal imbalances! Apply to your abdomen, pulse points, and inner ankles for relief of symptoms. You can reapply in a few minutes for increased relief. And, an added plus is that it smells heavenly. Apply to your hands, rub together, cup, and inhale deeply for therapeutic benefit. A soothing blend of clary sage, lavender, bergamot, roman chamomile, cedarwood, ylang ylang, geranium, fennel carrot seed, palmarosa, and vitex. Enjoy and smile!
I have always had the most intense cramps and have pretty much tried everything. As soon as Solace arrived at MWJ I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I started using it right before my cycle when the moody-ness and sensitivity started to set in. I used it all through the usually horrible first and second day cramps through to the end and I could most definitely tell a difference. For one, it smells amazing. Two, it is certainly a mood enhancer – I feel a little less sensitive and crabby with every application. Lastly, my cramps have been significantly less painful . I recently sold an almost full Solace right out of my purse to a close customer and was kicking myself afterwards for then having to live without it! - Paige Chapman, owner, MWJ
