Defend Essential Oil Blend

$20 $25


The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, and it’s time we rethink the materials, processes, and packaging used to create our beloved purchases. This is why we’ve done the upfront legwork and vetted our brands to ensure that our planet’s health is top of mind for them as well.


Women lift up half of the sky - by investing in women, you’re assisting in the process of creating more wealth for families and communities. The successes of women shape the way young girls see themselves as they develop into leaders, and it's essential for the world to provide leaders that mirror half of the population. 

Toxic Free

The secret behind the beauty, personal-care, and fashion industry is that they’re virtually unregulated, and therefore, allowed to use untested chemicals in their products. Exposure to these ingredients can be harmful overtime, and that’s why we’ve vetted each and every single one of these brands to ensure that they’re up to standards for those looking for a cleaner beauty routine or may be more sensitive to harsh ingredients.


Here at ourCommonplace, all brands have our ethical stamp of approval, which encompasses decent working conditions, treatment of workers, and fair-wages. Through providing a platform for purchasing ethical goods and ensuring all brands uphold ethical standards, we hope to take us towards a more equitable and just world.


We believe in uplifting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities by empowering their businesses. By choosing to allocate your purchasing power to BIPOC-owned businesses, you're not only strengthening local BIPOC communities — you're also contributing to shrinking the racial wealth gap, fostering job creation, and propelling diverse representation across consumer industries.

Cruelty Free

Animal tests are often painful and cause the suffering and deaths of millions of animals every year. Having this stamp of approval means that no animals were tested on, harmed or killed in the process of making the product. When you opt in for cruelty-free brands, you’re opting out of animal testing, and investing in clean products that are made for the benefit of your body, animals, and the environment.

What do we say to that first nip of cold or flu? “Not today.” Eucalyptus, frankincense, lemon, peppermint, tea tree, and thyme aromas weave and combine, shielding you from pathogens while boosting your immunity.

0.5 fl oz / 15ml

Eucalyptus – Essential oil from this Australian tree is famous for both deep-cleansing and flu-fighting prowess. Studies prove it to be antiseptic, antibacterial, and even antiviral, despite topical- and aromatic-only use. Just a few drops can invoke clean aromas and help purify the air around you. Its gentle herbal fumes are likewise prepared to aid you against colds, flu, and other respiratory bugs with every time you breathe in and enjoy them.

Frankincense – Wrap yourself in this serene perfumery from the Holy Land. Frankincense may be an herbal accoutrement of biblical proportions, but its basic ancient use was simple: for ritual and home cleansing of negative forces. Antimicrobial activity, shown through research, closely supports this belief. Frankincense may not actually banish evil spirits, but it can literally clear the air of pathogens (and boost your immunity while you’re at it).

Lemon – Sparkling lemon fragrance adds more than just a pleasant note to our Defend blend. Besides an illustrious and calming scent, this citrus’s oils also have surprising cold- and flu-fighting properties. Behind these actions might be some subtle antiviral-like action, studies show. It’s likely that lemon essential oil’s diffused vapors—with help from the other herbs from our blend— can help keep down viruses, bugs, and germs in your surroundings.

Peppermint – Most of us are all too familiar with peppermint’s cool yet punchy essence. Not as smooth-scented like its sister, spearmint, what it lacks in mildness it makes up for with invigorating and purifying potential. Research shows peppermint has some mild antiviral actions, too. As one of many carefully curated herbs in Defense, peppermint works in your favor keeping cold/flu pathogens (and bad odors) at bay— plus, it’s one spunky herb.

Tea Tree – It’s your absolute must-have ally for both purification and immune defense. Research shows the Australian shrub literally prevents influenza virus from entering host cells, stopping flu in its tracks. Easily called queen of all cleansing botanicals, tea tree leads the charge in our blend. It combats all pathogens, keeping your space clean, healthy, and well. Count on its amazing scents to not only lift your spirits, but your immune system’s health, too.

Thyme – Time heals all wounds. But thyme—both healing and culinary— might help cure what ails you. Its folk use for coughs and colds? Not so “folksy” after all: research supports the spritely herb as a reliable remedy, even when only its essences are gently inhaled. Helping you vanquish viruses, thyme works like a barrier against airborne pathogens. Its aromas conjure warmth and protection just as much as it cleans, restores, and remedies.

Eucalyptus Globulus, Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense), Citrus Limonum (Lemon), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree), and Thymus vulgaris (Thyme)

Fast-forward through those coughs and sniffles. Or, clear your airspace of pesky pathogens. Place 10 - 15 drops of Defend essential oil into your diffuser for best results.

CAUTION: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. If pregnant or nursing, contact your health practitioner before using. Some essential oils may promote sunburn.

A few Dos & Don'ts For The Defend Essential Oil Blend

Do dilute your Defend essential oils in water. Nebulizing diffusers don’t require dilution, but regular use in diffusers and use in custom blends or cleaning/body care products require water dilution or a carrier oil.
Don’t use Defend essential oils on the body if you will be in/near direct sunlight. Certain citrus-based oils can amplify the possibility of sunburn, and should be avoided at times when you will be in direct sunlight.
Do carefully consider which blends of essential oils will be best for you. Defend is perfect for helping you feel the best you can with oils such as Eucalyptus. There are plenty of varieties of essential oils, and we carry specialized blends that serve many purposes.
Don’t use certain essential oils while pregnant.
Do use your essential oil diffusers regularly. Simply add 5 - 10 drops to water for the ultrasonic diffuser or 5 - 10 drops of the essential oil directly into the nebulizing diffuser for hours of aromatherapy.
