What does a day in the life of a Young Living essential oil user look like?

Young Living is committed to providing the highest quality essential oils and products so you can receive the benefits of nature’s essence or life force on a daily basis.

And all of the personal and skincare products allow you to reduce the toxic load in your body too.
So what does a typical day look like as a Young Living essential oil user? There are so many options!
If you like to meditate, you can diffuse or rub 1 drop of the following essential oils onto your third eye – Frankincense, Awaken or Higher Purpose.
In the shower, you can enjoy the uplifting fragrance of Morning Start Bath & Shower gel, use the ART Gentle Foaming Cleanser to wash your face, use the cleansing Lavender Mint shampoo and Lavender Mint conditioner.
To deodorise you apply your Meadow Mist and dab your fragrance of choice for the day, maybe Joy, Geranium, Ylang Ylang or Jasmine essential oils.
If you’re a man, you can enjoy the Shutran shave cream, Mirah shave oil, Meadow Mint deodorant and try Abundance, Believe, Transformation, Mister or Shutran essential oils as a cologne.

We know it’s important to take a few key supplements like OmegaGize3 (contains omega 3, COQ10 and Vitamin D), a dash of Mineral Essence in your NingXia Red shot (a super-charged multi-vitamin rich in anti-oxidants), Longevity gel, and in winter time or when you know you’re under the pump take some Inner Defence to support your immune system.
For Breakfast you might decide to make a quick shake with Balance Complete, chia seeds, organic almond milk and a dash of organic coconut milk or cream. Gary’s True grit Einkorn Granola will provide a crunchy and satisfying start to the day. For the full range of supplements, click here.
Brush your teeth and freshen your breath with one of the Thieves toothpastes and the Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash.
Starting your day
Whether you’re dropping the kids to school or going to work, you can feel fresh and alert by inhaling Peppermint or Citrus Fresh. If you know you’ve got a particularly busy day ahead try inhaling En-R-Gee throughout the day or apply a drop to the back of your neck.
If you’ve got an important meeting, presentation or need to stay centred while you navigate a tricky issue, apply a drop of Valor to your wrists and regularly inhale. It will help you to feel calm and centred and give you courage and confidence.
For a morning snack try a cup of Slique tea and a Wolfberry crisp bar. You could also try 1 drop of Peppermint oil in a cup of hot water. (A Young Living Peppermint tea is the equivalent of 28 ordinary cups of tea!) Add a drop of Lemon or one of the other citrus essential oils to your water to support hydration and mind and body cleansing.
If you’ve been focused all morning, it might be time to apply your Stress Away roll on to your neck and shoulders just before you take some time out for lunch.
Remember you’ve got a little case of your essentials in your bag or top drawer with – Thieves spray, Thieves waterless hand purifier, dental floss, lip balm, Peppermint, Lavender, Lemon, Peace & Calming, Stress Away roll on, Deep Relief roll on, Valor, Joy and a couple of your other favourites. Most of these are in the Everyday Oils Collection.
After lunch slump
It happens to the best of us, especially if we’re already tired or stressed. A NingXia Red 60ml single will be your saviour. It will give you an energy boost without a sugar slump! You can also add 1 drop of a citrus oil to help freshen your mind. Inhaling Peppermint will also help.
If you’ve still got a ‘massive’ afternoon ahead of you, try diffusing or inhaling Brain Power, Clarity, Motivation or Highest Potential.
If you’ve been physically working hard or at your computer for most of the day, applying Deep Relief roll on to your neck and shoulders can help ease any built-up tension.
After being around or working in EMF fields associated with mobile phones, computers, WiFi, etc it’s important to cleanse your energy field. Apply 1 drop of Rosemary essential oil to your palm, rub into your palms and then cup over your nose and inhale deeply. You can also run your hands around your body to help cleanse your mind and energy field of any built-up negativity. Inhaling or diffusing and Sacred Mountain can also help you to ground back to nature. Gathering and Grounding can also help cleanse your field before you reconnect with your family in the evening.
Diffuse Peace & Calming, Christmas Spirit or Gentle Baby for 30 minutes when you get home so the whole family can relax and unwind.
Need to get a load of washing done? Use the Thieves Laundry Soap for the wash and white vinegar for fabric softener. If you have any stains, apply undiluted Thieves Household cleaner to the spot.
If you’ve had a particularly long day, have a nice unwind in the bath with Lavender, Geranium and Frankincense essential oils and Evening Peace Bath & Shower gel. For some added luxury, add 1 drop of Rose oil as well. You may need to wait till after you’ve put the kids to bed though!
Moving onto dinner. Creating rich flavours in your cooking is easy with the Culinary Oils range. There are currently 33 oils including coriander, basil, black pepper, orange, lemongrass, nutmeg, lime, fennel, dill, cardamom, ginger, oregano and thyme. Making your favourite roasts, stir fries, quiches, flavoured root chips and desserts is now easier with the intense flavours of the Culinary Oils Collection. One to two drops will do the trick.
If you and your partner have created some time together you may decide to give one another a foot rub or neck and shoulder massage with the Relaxation or Sensation massage oils. Diffusing Acceptance, Gentle Baby and/or Sensation can help create a nurturing and heart-opening space for you and your partner to connect.
It’s important to remove your make-up and the day’s dirt and grime from your face before bed. Use the Orange Blossom Facial Wash or the ART Gentle Foaming Cleanser, followed by the ART toner, Art Intensive Moisturizer and Sheerlume cream, as well as your favourite lip balm. You can provide extra support around your eyes with the Wolfberry Eye Cream. Your skin will feel in heaven.
If you have cracked heals or dry elbows, try applying the intense Sandalwood Moisture Cream.
