 Happy Saturday!  Welcome to another edition of Dragonfly Tales.
Guess What?  Today, you aren't going to read my ramblings!
I invited a very dear woman named Gina to be our guest blogger today.  Gina is a doTerra Essential Oil consultant, and one of the nicest women one would want to meet.

With so much sickness going around, I asked Gina to give us some insight as to what doTerra has to offer in the way of helping to prevent illness.  Ladies and Gentlemen without further ado; Gina!


Your body has an amazing natural defense system specifically designed to guard you against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites all laying siege to invade your body. You probably wouldn’t give much thought to it, except that 
occasionally it becomes run down and you get sick.

Did You Know…

There are many things you can do to naturally enhance your immune system. One simple way is paying attention to what you put in your mouth. Eating plenty of fruits and 
vegetables can help you get a healthy dose of antioxidants, which can help protect your cells from free radicals and molecules that can damage cells.

Another Great Idea…

A daily multivitamin will help ensure that your body is getting all of the building blocks for a healthy immune system. Some nutrients that may be especially important for immune system health include selenium, vitamins A, C, D, and E, zinc and magnesium.

One Of My Favorites…

Essential oils can be used to clean counter tops and doorknobs, or diffused to purify stale air. Additionally, essential oils can be used topically or internally as directed to boost your body’s own natural defenses. Used aromatically, essential oils can also reduce stress, which is a key contributor to weakening the immune system.

Something We Are Learning…

Processed foods such as fast foods, snack foods, candy, and soda don’t provide much in the way of vitamins, fiber, or other nutrients. And they often contain high levels of sugar, and other additives and chemicals that are not good for your body. Choose nutrient-rich 
foods such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

We Gotta Move On…

One simple way to strengthen your immune system is by exercising. Getting regular exercise can also reduce stress and help lower your risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Exercise moderately a few times a week.

Time To Turn In…

Without enough sleep, your immune system may not have the resources it needs to night off illness. Most adults need about seven to nine hours of sleep each night.

Clean Up Your Act…

One of the easiest ways to help your immune system fight illness is to wash your hands regularly. It’s also one of the best ways to keep yourself and others healthy. Be sure to use soap and clean, running water, and wash for at least 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use a cleansing essential oil, such as doTERRA’s On Guard Essential Oil Blend.
