None of us like to wake up feeling unwell. Coughs, colds and congestion are just a reality, but you shouldn't have to suffer through it without a little help.

It smells super clean and fresh, with sweet top notes of orange, a hearty note of peppermint and Tea Tree and a warm bottom note of cinnamon and cloves.
Read studies below to see how:
- Peppermint reduces coughs, sinusitis, and throat infections

A 2010 study Trusted Source looked at a commercial essential oil blend of clove, wild orange, and cinnamon. Its application reduced in vitro viral particles by 90 percent. The oil blend also decreased infection. It showed that On Guard (DoTERRA Belnd) significantly attenuates influenza virus by possibly blocking viral protein translation.
A 2006 review found that tea tree, or melaleuca, oil has antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Because sinus tissue inflammation and bacteria are often the culprits of sinus congestion, tea tree oil may help.
Researchers in a 2009 study found that 1,8 cineole, which is the main component of eucalyptus oil, is an effective and safe treatment for sinusitis that doesn’t include antibiotics. According to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), 1,8 cineole helps clear the air of bacteria and other microbes. It can also help clear airways of mucus and is a natural cough suppressant.
While peppermint oil may not clear congestion, the main compound in peppermint oil is menthol. Menthol is in certain OTC remedies, such as vapor rubs, lozenges, and nasal inhalers. Menthol produces a cooling sensation, leading to nasal passages feeling clearer and hence making someone breathe easier. Peppermint oil may also lessen the intensity of acute migraines. One 2015 study found that a topical gel with 6 percent menthol decreased pain intensity after two hours.
