The Best Essential Oils for Summer

One way that I’m living green-er lately is by using essential oils.  I am so excited about sharing my experience with Young Living Essential Oils and just how they’re helping me Green My Summer!

Summer Essential Oils

I admit that I’m still totally new to the Essential Oils scene.  I’ve used them to make DIY Cleaning Wipes [a fabulous alternative to disposable bleach wipes], but I’m still learning great ways to use them in our every day life too.  Jamie, the fabulous lady behind the H.O.P.E. drops, a Young Living consultant, was kind enough to share some fabulous uses for Young Living Essential Oils with me.

I was especially interested in different ways that the oils could help treat and prevent specific things to go right along with Summer!

Essential 7

Lavender:  Sunburn Soothing, great for Scrapes and Bruises, Allergies (airborne or skin), Dry skin, Poison Ivy Relief, and Heatstroke

Peppermint:  Also great for preventing Heatstroke, Allergies (airborne or skin), Energizing, Curb Appetite, and Pain Relief [I love this for helping with headaches!]

Lemon:  Cleaning, Gum Removal, Water and Air Purification, Dissolving Cellulite, Great for adding to favorite recipe or beverage

**The above oils can also be combined, 3 drops of each, in a capsule with a carrier oil 2-3x’s a day for Spring and Summer Allergy Relief!

Joy:  This blend is amazing for keeping a happy heart while entertaining your energetic children all summer!  A drop of joy over your heart combats anxiety and depression.

PanAway:  If you’re working out this summer, then PanAway may became your best friend! Pain relief, stimulates quicker healing of injuries, promotes circulation, and helps bumps & bruises.

Purification:  Don’t camp without it!  Bug and Pest repellant, Treat Insect/Spider Bites, Bee & Wasp stings, Air purification, Wounds and Cuts, and Cleansing.

Young Living Oils

Lucky for you and me – Young Living makes all these oils – the 3 single oils and 4 blends [also includes Peace and Calming, not listed above] in a Kit to make them more affordable and easy to obtain.

Essential 7 Young Living

The Essential 7 is one that every family should own as it contains the 7 most common, essential Young Living Essential Oils.  I really prefer purchasing a collection like this, rather than 1 oil at a time, simply because I know they’re the ones used most often and with a huge variety of uses of each oil and blend.
