This or That: Guardian Vs Fighting Five

Need a New Year’s resolution? Why not commit to maintaining good health this year – starting with keeping your immune system in working order. A strong and healthy immune system can help you avert sick days, minimize allergy attacks, tackle fatigue and keep you moving forward. 

And when it comes to giving our immune system a boost, essential oils are Edens Garden’s first line of defense, and they’re about to be yours too. We’ve formulated two blends whose only maxim is “protect and defend,” and they will do just that when inhaled or applied topically using a carrier oil. In today’s blog, we’re discussing everything you need to know about Fighting Five and Guardian, so you can start your commitment to good health on the right foot. 

This or That: Fighting Five Vs. Guardian

From the looks of it, Fighting Five and Guardian might not seem very different, but even the addition or substitution of one essential oil can drastically change a blend. Each of these blends was created to aid the immune system and oppose illness. Read on to discover the blend that’s right for you. 

Fighting Five

A warm and medicinal blend, diffusing Fighting Five is like enjoying a warm cup of coffee on a cold day. Each oil in this blend encourages the immune system to perk up and work hard to fight off and prevent sickness. With powerful active ingredients like Cinnamon Leaf and Clove Bud, germs and bacteria are sure to stay at bay.

How It Compares

As opposed to Guardian, Fighting Five contains Lemon and Eucalyptus Radiata. The addition of Eucalyptus Radiata and Lemon supports the respiratory system and creates a more citrusy, medicinal aroma. While both blends make a purposeful addition to any space, Fighting Five is our choice when dealing with respiratory ailments and issues. 

How To Use It

To get the most out of this blend, protect yourself by carrying around an Essential Oil Inhaler filled with 10-15 drops of Fighting Five. Inhale several times throughout the day, as needed. 

Additionally, stock your bathroom with Fighting Five bath salt and soap. Use Fighting Five bath salt at the end of a day spent around groups of people or in public to help eliminate harmful pathogens as you unwind. To help safeguard your health and rid germs, use Fighting Five soap whenever you wash your hands. 


Guardian essential oil blend is a bodyguard in a bottle – constantly on lookout duty and striking down germs and destructive microorganisms. Allow this blend of Sweet Orange, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Bark, Cinnamon Leaf, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary to protect you and your loved ones from harmful maladies.

How It Compares

EG’s formulators added Sweet Orange and Cinnamon Bark to Guardian and removed Eucalyptus Radiata. We love both Sweet Orange and Cinnamon Bark, not only because they lend themselves to Guardian’s incredible aroma, but because they are powerhouses in protecting from external factors. What this means is, we’ll take Guardian over Fighting Five when a bug is ‘going around’ or when it’s time to bring out the big guns.

How To Use It

Defend your health with Guardian by diffusing it for 30-60 minutes intervals in an active diffuser throughout the day. Alternatively, diffuse your blend continuously using a passive diffuser. 

For a quicker way to fill your atmosphere with the healing benefits of Guardian, reach for Guardian room spray. Add a spritz to your bathroom, kitchen, linens, couch, high-traffic areas or wherever necessary. 

For a more targeted approach, apply the Guardian roll-on to pulse points, such as the wrists, inner elbows or neck, before going out in public.

I am eager to enter the contest and do not see where to enter for the most popular oil. My guess is the fighting five!
