I’ve never really been under the weather before as an adult other than the one time I had a temporary bacteria that landed in my throat. I had just plunged head first into running my own business as a wellness advocate and I was burning the candle at both ends; up all night studying and absorbing everything I could and up early to put new ideas into practice. You can do that only so long and then your body speaks up and says “enough is enough”!
I remember my kids having this same thing in years past but I never really appreciated how unwell they must have felt until I experienced it for myself. Oh, how I wish I had known about essential oils when my kids were small. It would have been so helpful to provide some relief in the middle of the night all those years ago like I can do now when someone has a bad bug.
Thankfully, I had an arsenal of wonderful essential aids when it came my turn to feel so poorly. My absolute favorite product during that time was OnGuard protecting throat drops. They helped soothe my irritated throat and gave me temporary relief which allowed me to sleep and rest my body. It has been a few years since I was feeling so unwell and since then, many of us have had scratchy throats and now we always use our drops to support the healing process.
