Best Essential Oils and Supplements to Promote Healthy Sleep Routines

Essential oils can be important tools for creating a great night's sleep. Young Living has developed some amazing essential oil blends, vitamins and supplements to support healthy sleep patterns.

Lavender Essential Oil is naturally calming and balances your body's energies. Place a drop on your pillow before heading to bed, or drop some in your bathwater late in the evening.

Chamomile Essential Oil is gentle and soothing for babies and adults. Dilute a drop in a teaspoon of vegetable carrier oil like jojoba. Or, add a drop to Young Living's Seedlings Lavender Baby Oil made with pure Sesame oil infused with Lavender Essential Oil. Lavender and Chamomile compliment each other, especially for their relaxing qualities. Babies and adults will enjoy the benefits of adding Chamomile Essential Oils to any of the Seedling's products to calm down in the evening.

Tranquil Roll-on is Young Living's convenient Lavender-Chamomile blend ready to use right from the bottle. 

RutaVala is the YL signature blend for rest and relaxation at the end of the day. It's super calming though! User beware, even smelling this blend will calm you to the point of wanting a nap almost immediately! This is the blend our family takes with us on overseas trips to help regulate our sleep patterns over multiple time zones. Our routine: Set your clock to your destination's time zone as soon as you set off to the airport. At your arriving time-zone's bedtime, apply RutaVala to the base of your neck rotating 3 times in a circle to bring on some sleep. Slip your eye mask on and get as much rest as you can. Continue to use the RutaVala at your destination's regular bedtime to train your body to adjust to the new times. If you can, begin using RutaVala at home during your normal bedtime routine a week or two in advance of your trip so your body begins to associate your bedtime routine with the aroma of RutaVala. 

MegaCal is a Calcium Magnesium supplement that you dissolve in water before drinking. The effervescent formula quickly absorbs into your body and supplies you with calming nutrients that support healthy sleep patterns.

Alkalime is a PH neutralizing effervescent beverage you mix up just before drinking. Alkalime is perfect for softening the effects of eating a rich meal too close before bedtime. Drink up a glass an hour before bed to settle your stomach and free up energy to lull yourself into a peaceful night's rest.

My Favorite Natural Cleaning Products For Every Room In The House

UPDATE:  While the Coronavirus has most of us sheltering in our homes, you can use the time to clean away! There are many copy cats of essential oils on the market, but only Young Living is your original, trusted source of the purest, most potent essential oils on the planet! Young Living is the world leader in the essential oils industry, they have paved the way to offering 100% untainted essential oils and done so for almost 30 years! Did you know there are no regulations in place to keep companies from saying their products contain 100% oil but still have added fillers or synthetic fragrance? Why would a company do this? Well simply because it's cheaper to use synthetic fragrance rather than pure plant oils. But Young Living will NEVER do this!  

Read on to learn more about Young Living's classic home cleaning essential oil blend that comes in household cleaner, hand sanitizer (killing 99.9% of germs!!), mouthwash, toothpaste, fruit and veggie wash and so much more!!

Thieves essential oil is the foundation of Young Living's signature line of products. This line has been in production for over 25 years and one of the most popular product lines in the company because of it's versatility for busy families as well as it's safe, effective and natural ingredients. Founder, Gary Young, created the Thieves Line from a historical "Marseille Vinegar" created during the Black Plague to protect individuals from getting ill.

Thieves is a powerful essential oil blend of clove, cinnamon bark, lemonrosemary and Eucalyptus Radiata. This blend is one of the most powerful combinations and is highly purifying and supports a healthy immune system. The oils in this blend are useful for cleaning all home surfaces, including areas in the kitchen, bath and baby's room. The full line includes an alcohol free hand sanitizer, household cleaner, mouthwash, lozenges and a convenient purse-sized spray to disinfect surfaces when you are away from your home.  

Thieves has many uses, especially during the winter months when indoor air becomes stagnant. Diffuse the essential oil to purify and freshen your home, the cinnamon and clove aroma brings a spicy scent to your indoor air.  Young Living's Thieves Blend is so popular that several companies have tried to replicate the blend,  but it's important to consider the species of essential oils used. Gary Young has been very meticulous about creating blends that not only smell pleasing, but that hold a special chemistry with specific properties.

Often Cassia might be used in blends to impart a "cinnamon" aroma, but Cassia has different properties than Cinnamomum verum, also known as Cinnamomum zeylanicum). Companies often change their formulations to "improve" quality, this blend has been re-formulated from my last research. Another Immune Building blend is :Clove (Syzygium aromaticum), lemon(Citrus limon), cinnamon(Cinnamomum verum), Eucalyptus radiata and rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis CT 1,8 cineol). All of these individual essential oils are powerful on their own, but when combined they have a synergistic effect with one another to really support healthy immune function.

Some of our favorite uses for the Thieves Line include:

  • Cleaning surfaces in the kitchen and bath.
  • Diffusing in the classroom to keep the air fresh and clean.
  • Spraying down surfaces that are shared: light switches, door knobs, pencil sharpener handles, railings.
  • Bringing lozenges and hand purifier on the plane when you travel.
  • Adding a capful of Household cleaner to your laundry when cleaning heavily soiled items.

I also add a capful of Household cleaner to my carpet cleaner rather than using the supplied soap. Some companies say that the manufacturer will void any warranty if you don't use they supplied cleaners, but I've and good success with vinegar and water plus a capful of the Household cleaner.

Essential Oils for Hiking and Camping

Essential oils are an essential for camping and outdoors where you'll enjoy the good, the bad and the "bugly". I've got some great recipes further down this article that we use in our family all year long. These blends are staples in our home and have even made it with us to India 3 times, Africa, the National Parks in Colorado and Utah, and the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

These pure liquids come from plants, flowers, leaves, bark and stems of plants. In order to be a therapeutic grade and potent oil, there are several factors that play a role in the potency of an essential oil. Of course, we're talking about plant oils that have no synthetic additives or fillers that would not only dilute the pure oil, those fillers are most likely harmful if applied to your skin. Since there are no regulations in the essential oil industry that keep a company from putting fillers in their supply and still calling it therapeutic, Young Living has been a pioneer in establishing quality control in the field of aromatherapy. Young Living is the world leader in growing, harvesting, distilling, testing and packaging many of their essential oils. Invest in the best quality ingredients from Young Living where you can rely on consistently potent products. This is especially true if you are going to mix together oils that are going to be used for the great outdoors where you want the most effective measures to combat the bad and the bugly so you can enjoy your time outside. 

Essential oils are the lifeblood of the plant and protect it from harmful insects like aphids, mosquitos, ticks, stinkbugs and beetles. Just as animals have some scent defense mechanisms in their bodies, plants also release scent to either deter their pest enemies or attract them. Genetically modified plant material will most definitely affect an essential oil's potency and potential to continue to deter those same insects. 

Young Living offers their Seed to Seal guarantee for families as a promise to provide you with the purest plant oils that have no fillers or additives to dilute their effectiveness.

So which oils are the most effective at putting a shield on your and your family while you're camping or hiking? 


I like to mix up a blend of oils and I often change up the blend. Aromatherapist generally recommend that you shouldn't use any essential oil regularly for more than 3 weeks at a time. Just take a little break for a few days. Consider essential oils like vitamins for your skin and personal care. You wouldn't eat only carrots all day long every day, would you? Just the same, peppermint essential oil is a great oil, but your body's chemistry can become complacent if you use it time and time again. Here are essential oils that I use in my outside spray blend:

  • Lavender - Safe for everyone, young and old including infants. Simply apply therapeutic grade lavender (I only recommend Therapeutic, food grade lavender tested for potency) directly to exposed skin (Neat).
  • Peppermint - Safe for children over 6 diluted with a carrier oil. Peppermint is stimulating so avoid using right before going to bed. Also has a cooling effect on the skin, good for hot days.
  • Lemongrass - powerful oil that should be diluted before applying to the skin. This is a hot oil and should not be used on young children. Effective when applied to clothing from a spray bottle. Do not apply to the face.
  • Citronella - Make sure you use pure therapeutic grade citronella oil, not just a fragranced oil which will not repel those bugs. Dilute before applying to skin.
  • Cedarwood- Adds a woodsy fragrance to a spray, it helps repel other insects such as sand flies.
  • Geranium - Has a more floral aroma but blends well with the tree oils. Geranium is the underdog in aromatherapy, it's a great all around oil that is often overlooked. It's great for the skin, hormones, and in this case a great addition to a camping spray. 
  • Palo Santo - An earthy, musky essential oil that comes from a wood. In South America, the people burn the wood and the smoke deters insects. The essential oil will bring a subtle smokiness to your blend.
  • Palmarosa is similar to lemongrass but it is more gentle on the skin.
  • Thyme - Has a very strong aroma that may be softened when blended with other oils. It is a strong, hot oil, so only add a couple of drops to your blend if you'd like. It blends well with lemon eucalyptus.
  • Purification Essential Oil blend - Contains citronella, lemongrass, lavandin, rosemary, melaleuca & myrtle essential oils. This is a powerful blend that mosquitos and other flying insects dislike. Mix 8-10 drops of Purification blend with a teaspoon of vegetable oil and apply to exposed skin. This blend is also excellent for bringing relief to any insect bites and stings. Apply  1 drop directly to the location as soon as possible after a bite or sting to lessen itching & swelling. (test first on a small area for sensitive skin).
  • Thieves Essential Oil blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus radiata & rosemary essential oils. Helpful when mixed in a spray bottle and misted on the skin. Also a good option for treating an insect bite when applied topically. Dilute 1:1 with a carrier oil or witch hazel and apply on location as needed.
  • Melrose Oil blend of melaleuca alternifolia and rosemary essential oils. Apply neat or diluted 1:1 onto location to relieve pain and itching from stings and mosquito bites. Mix in a spray bottle and apply to clothing or exposed areas of skin.
  • Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil is recommended as a powerful mosquito repellant, effective as much as DEET products, without the side effects and neurotoxins of chemicals.

Essential Oils for Mosquitos and Ticks

DIY Outdoor Repellant Here are a couple of more blends we've used in our family. You can mix up your own combination of essential oils to have on hand. Add the essential oils to a glass spray bottle, the same method as making your own air freshener. You can also add the essential oil blend to a vegetable oil and apply to the skin before exposure to mosquitos. Making your own repellent makes sense if you want to live a life with less toxins. These combinations are quick and easy to mix and you'll know what ingredients you're putting on your body.

Adult Camping Spray #2, mix together in a 4 ounce spray bottle and shake before each use, or add 1 drop castille soap or bath gel base to emulsify the oil

  • 15 drops Purification essential oil blend
  • 8 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 8 drops lavender essential oil
  • 8 drops cedarwood essential oil
  • enough purified water, aloe vera, witch hazel or apple cider vinegar to fill the bottle

Kiddie Camping Spray #3, mix in a 4 ounce spray bottle, shaking before each use, or adding 1 drop of catille soap or bath gel base to emulsify oil:

  • 8 drops lavender essential oil
  • 8 drops palo santo essential oil
  • 8 drops palmarosa essential oil
  • 8 drops geranium essential oil
  • 8 drops melaleuca essential oil or Melrose essential oil blend
  • 8 drops lemon eucalyptus essential oil
  • enough water, aloe vera, witch hazel or apple cider vinegar to fill the bottle

Alternatively, apply lavender directly to exposed skin, mixing with a vegetable oil to extend the time between applications. The oils in these blends may also be used for pets.

Got the sting? Lavender, Thieves, Purification blend and clove oil all may work to comfort someone if they've been stung. The key is to apply it as soon as possible to calm the skin. If you get bit by  Often the itch will go away in 10-15 minutes. If you wait too long, the venom will hit your system and it's often harder to stop the itch. Use lavender for little kids, Thieves and Purification blend for older kids and adults. The oils will also keep bites clean and support skin health. This information is not intended as a substitution for medical care to those allergic or sensitive to insect stings.

Essential Oil Infused Supplements

Essential oils are the smallest molecules that your body identifies as whole body nutrition. Each oil is packed with vitamins and nutrients that support healthy body systems and nourishes your cells.

There are so many vitamins and supplements on the market that it can be difficult to decide what is best for your body. Some supplements may not even break down in your system and pass through unused. This is not only disappointing from a physical standpoint as you don't get the benefits of the vitamins, it's wasted money!

Essential oils are absorbed very quickly into your body just from a topical application. It's been indicated that essential oils are found in the blood stream in as quickly as 26 seconds after a topical application. When they are combined with nutrients in a dietary supplement, your body absorbs those nutrients even quicker.

Young Living carries a full line of dietary supplements to support your overall well being and health. 

They carry vitamins and supplements for almost every body system. Here are some of our family favorites that you can get for your family!:

Safe Essential Oils by Trimester

Pregnancy is a wonderful time to celebrate a new life growing inside of you. It's a season to nurture your mind, body and spirit, a season that will greatly impact the health and well-being of the little person you are carrying. Every choice you make will affect this precious cargo, the foods you eat, the products you put on your skin, and even the air you breathe. This is the season to be vigilant about what you are exposed to. Even airborne chemicals enter your bloodstream and circulate through baby's system. Are you ready to get started with essential oils today?

The International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics Professional Organization released a journal study in December 2015 acknowledging the risks and dangers of exposing your growing baby to environmental and chemical toxins. There are many resources to help educate you on what to avoid, safest foods to eat and how to find the purest home and personal care products. EWG.org, Environmental Working Group, is a non-profit organization that tests many of our consumer goods to help you find the safest options. One of the easiest toxins to replace is synthetic fragrance (found in candles, perfumes, plug-in type deodorizers and spray air fresheners) and also in many personal care lotions and soaps. Are you skeptical? If so, head over and read about one of the EWG studies that found many fragrance chemicals in the cord blood of newborn babies.

Want some label-reading savvy? Look for synthetic components added to personal care products. Molecules like Limonene, Geraniol and Eugenol are naturally occurring antioxidants found in pure essential oils. If they are listed individually on an ingredient list they are most likely a man-made chemical. Also avoid the ingredients "parfum, perfume, or fragrance" which are just a combination of perfume chemicals.

Are you ready for change? Read through this info graph created by Young Living to show Safe Essential Oils to use by Trimester. YL is leading the way into sound, sensible information on using essential oils correctly. I'm also committed to supporting your efforts to be healthy and green. Join our community of Green Living experts for full support in your Aromatherapy journey! Ready to jump in and start saving 24%? Stop over today!

11 Simple Ways to Use Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil is one of the most gentle essential oils if it is free of any fillers or additives. It's super important to use a brand that cold-presses the lemons from organic fruits like Young Living since the essential oil comes from the rind of the fruit. Young Living's "Vitality" essential oils are examples of how the company is committed to constant improvement of their product line to give you the best! The Vitality oils maintain FDA standards of essential oils as a dietary supplement. Keep in mind that food flavorings are NOT therapeutic essential oils, but Young Living Vitality essential oils ARE food flavorings, the best quality you can get. Nothing added or taken away from the natural plant material.

Essential oils are super concentrated, it takes 75 lemons to make a 15ml bottle of lemon essential oil! One drop goes a long way. That same 15ml bottle of lemon essential oil is packed with 250-300 drops of essential oil making them very cost-effective - if you figure you only need 1 drop for a glass of flavored water, each 15 ml bottle can make 250-300 bottles of flavored water!  Here are some other fun ways to use your lemon essential oil

1. Lemonade: Yes, you can make Lemonade with a Therapeutic food-grade lemon essential oil. Just add 1 drop of lemon essential oil to a glass, fill with 8 - 10 oz of purified water, sweeten to taste with agave nectar or stevia liquid. Add ice if desired, Enjoy! For a special treat instead of soda, use sparkling water like San Pellegrino.

2. Cold Sore Comfort: Apply a drop undiluted directly on cold sore to keep skin clean. Make sure to avoid sun exposure 12 hours after application to avoid sunburn which would make your sore worse.

3. Immune Support....massage 1-2 drops into lymph glands to cleanse and improve toxin removal.

4. Sticker removal: apply 1-2 drops directly on to stickers to dissolve sticky residue. Test a small surface before doing this, do not use on plastics or woods, which lemon oil will dull or remove finish.

5. Callouses: Massage 1-2 drops onto each foot to soften callouses. Finish with a vegetable oil like coconut.

6. Fruit and Veggie Wash: Add a drop to a bowl of water and submerge produce for a few minutes to cleanse and extend shelf life. Remove produce and set on a clean dish towel to dry. Use your produce immediately or store in cloth produce bags to prolong it's life.

7. Throat Soother : For a dry throat, add 1-2 drops to a spoonful of honey or agave nectar and swallow to coat throat. This is great for singers, speakers or anyone needing a little TLC on the vocal chords!

8. Concentration: Diffuse while working to increase memory recall and reduce frequency of clerical errors

9. Digestive Support: Massage 1-2 drops into belly to support healthy digestion.

10. Healthy Lung Function: Massage 1-2 drops into child's or adult's chest to comfort person with chest congestion and increase expectoration. Lemon essential oil is mucolytic.

11. Concentration: Diffuse lemon essential oil at work or when studying to improve concentration and memory recall. There are many studies on www.GoogleScholar.com that show lemon essential oil even improving accuracy of workers in an office setting.
