on guard

I've mentioned in the past that MRSA has been making its way through my house.  Since we got home from the hospital, I have had a few outbreaks.  Sadly, Joley also had a spot on her leg.  I decided to go a different route than in the past and used some On Guard Essential Oil on her MRSA boil.  Her skin is very sensitive and the oil has a bit of spice to it, so I used Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) … [Read more...]
