Essential Oils to use EVERYDAY
There’s an oil for that; No, seriously… There really IS an oil for that!
If you’ve spent anytime with me over the past several months you will know that I’ve come to absolutely LOVE essential oils. Not just any essential oils, mind you; from the research and reading I have done I have come to recognize the wide range of oils available on the market and to be honest, many are just not worth your investment and may in fact do more harm than any possible good.
We’ve all heard the saying, you get what you pay for and although there are exceptions to this rule, essential oils are not one of those exceptions. To get a therapeutic grade, pure oil it takes a very specific seed to seal process to ensure optimum quality and therapeutic benefits. Essential oils come from plants, they are the life energy of the plant (you could equate the essential oils of a plant to the blood in an animal, it’s what provides nutrients, health and, ultimately life!). The medicinal properties are tremendous, our ancestors recognized many of these benefits because they were living in balance with nature; much of this wisdom was lost over the years as we became more industrialized and ‘developed’. However, much of this wisdom is now resurfacing with a tremendous amount of science to back up what our ancestors had already discovered…
When you stop and think about it, essential oils make sense, as a part of natures way of providing for all living beings…
The Young Living oils and oil infused pure products can help us not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually as well.
And hey, if nothing else they SMELL SOOO GOOD!
The following oils are part of our Everyday Oils Collection, and are the basic oils that families around the world use everyday to maintain vibrant health!
Frankincense is considered a holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used by nearly every ancient culture for thousands of years. It has a sweet, warm balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. Useful for visualizing, improving one’s spiritual connection, and centering, it has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair. To create an exotic scent in your home, combine frankincense and lemon in your diffuser. You’ll enjoy an unforgettable fragrance while eliminating unwanted airborne germs. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin, so add a few drops in coconut oil and give your skin some longevity.
Lemon essential oil has a pleasant, purifying citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon is great for removing household stains, disinfecting countertops, and even refreshing your laundry. Its powerful germ fighting constituents match lemon’s pleasant aroma. Diffuse Lemon Oil to protect your home from airborne bacteria and put a drop in your drinking water for both extra vitamin C and to support a healthy liver.
Peppermint oil is one of the most highly regarded oils for supporting digestion. Some scientists have researched peppermint’s role in improving taste and smell when inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati studied peppermint’s ability to improve concentration and mental sharpness. Alan Hirsch, MD studied peppermint’s ability to directly affect the brain’s satiety center, which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals.
With its fresh, floral scent, Lavender is considered the most universal of all essential oils. Therapeutic-grade lavender oil is highly regarded as a skin and beauty tonic. Not only is it helpful for facial blemishes, but it can also be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. Lavender helps the body to relax and promotes restful sleep when rubbed on the bottoms of the feet, or inhaled at bedtime. It can also offer relief to sore muscles and muscle spasms.

Gary Young created PanAway after a severe injury to the ligaments in his leg. This proprietary blend of soothing essential oils contains clove, peppermint, helichrysum and wintergreen, which is often used for massage. PanAway is soothing to the skin, while providing comforting warmth to muscles after exercise.

Thieves® was created based on research about four thieves in France who covered themselves with cloves, rosemary and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This proprietary essential oil blend was university tested for its cleansing abilities. It is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. I add it to my tea, put it on scrapes and cuts, use it as a disinfectant and it’s even great as a deodorant!!
