Essential oils work best when you use them daily, whether you are using them for a boost to your immunity, or for routine beauty practices. I keep my daily dōTERRA in a pretty little bag inside my purse, along with any other keepsakes, like crystals, that remind me to take a moment for myself and breathe.
The oils I bring with me vary week to week, but I find that I regularly reach for a few specific bottles, and so I try to always keep them with me.
On Guard is my daily defense against colds.
I make sure to bring this dōTERRA blend with me every day to work, putting a single drop in a bottle of water.

Its also great for cleaning surfaces-- just add a few drops to a damp paper towel and wipe down surfaces like your desk phone and computer.
Ever Get Afternoon Headaches?
Typically a result of dehydration or a tense jaw, headaches can make the day drag.
When I feel one coming on, I reach for Peppermint Oil, and massage a drop onto either temple. I can also add a drop to hot water and mix with honey for instant soothing tea.
My tension relaxes, my skin feels cool, and the scent calms any growing anxiety that the day has brought with it.
