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

If you’re still looking for even more uses, check out the H.O.P.E. drops list of 114 Everyday Uses for Everyday Essential 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.

If you have questions about using essential oils, Jamie and the H.O.P.E. drops team would love to answer them!  Be sure to follow along with the H.O.P.E. drops blog, and like them on Facebook, and follow on Twitter and Pinterest too!  This collection retails for $99.01 and contains 3 single oils: Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemon; and 4 blends: Joy, PanAway, Peace & Calming, and Purification.
