Wellness and Immune Support for Teen and College Students: Essential Oils Online Study Class

I am so glad you are here!  
This is our:


Hey friends!! Welcome to this class all about supporting our college-aged friends! We’ve put together some fun posts all about immune support, how to get the most of your oils, and all your soon-to- be study favorites! Whether you are in college yourself or know someone who is, we have some fun information coming your way!

So as we get started, tell us! Where do you go to school?! (Or where did you go?!)


Oh how I wish I knew about oils when I was in college! It would have been such an amazing way to support my wellness (and honestly my dorm room!). You know how they say sense of smell is one of the best ways to trigger memories?! I still remember so distinctly the smell of the hall that I lived on my freshman year of college—an overwhelming blend of lots of different perfumes. Oh how I wish I knew about Young Living at that time, and had a diffuser going in my room to purify the air (and let’s be real, maybe one for the shared bathrooms as well?).

So let’s talk about some dorm room essentials! We truly think that the Premium Starter Kit is the best way to get started with oils no matter what age you are at—because you get eleven oils that you can use to support so many different things—from your immune system to energy support to sleep support, and more! And that great diffuser to help purify the air that you’re floor-mates are sure to fall in love with as well!!

There are so many amazing products that YL offers for you to support wellness. Whether oils for emotional support, concentration, sleep support, or more, or to fill up all your shower supplies, like shampoo and conditioner, body wash, lotion, etc. there is something to meet your needs!

Some of our favorite dorm room must haves?! Thieves toothpaste, Thieves waterless hand purifier, USB diffuser, Savvy minerals makeup, Valor, Peace & Calming, Thieves household cleaner, Thieves laundry soap, Ningxia Red, Ningxia nitro, Thieves cough drops, Balance complete.
What are some of your dorm room essentials?!


Let's chat about SKINCARE!! Have y'all tried the ART line of facial cleansers yet?!? They are AMAZING!! Makes the skin so radiant and soft and even!! And developing a healthy skincare routine is sooooo important!!

ART Gentle Cleanser promotes glowing skin by washing away impurities with a soft, gentle lather. Infused with skin-loving essential oils, your face will feel clean and refreshed with a renewed, radiant look.

ART Refreshing Toner gently removes impurities without drying the skin. The perfect blend of essential oils helps balance your skin's pH, while leaving your face clean, toned, and refreshed.

ART Light Moisturizer helps your skin retain and maintain proper hydration. With Young Living essential oils and other premium ingredients, your skin will enjoy a feeling of silky softness.
I spent years and years on the hunt for a skincare system that I love!! And as I became much more mindful of the products that I use on my skin, my priority for clean/toxin free beauty products set me on a whole new search! So so thankful for these products that have been formulated with the cleanest ingredients and which work amazingly!


The first day of the college, or even the first day of a new semester, can be a little nerve-wracking. The first day of any new thing can come with butterflies and a little uncertainty! You have to try this first day ready roller blend as you get ready to begin your classes or meet your new roommate for the first time!

It is a combo of basil, bergamot, lavender, and peppermint with a carrier oil. I reach for this roller when I’m feeling those butterflies and nervous energy, and need some emotional support that will also help me to focus. These oils are great emotional support oils—so pull this roller out as you get ready for your first day of school or student orientation or before your next presentation or before taking that midterm or for whatever project you are working on that is making you feel a little bit jittery! This is for you!


I have to share with you one of my absolute favorite focus rollers that I make!

It is a combo of clarity, brain power, and lemon mixed with carrier oil! I love to use this in those moments when I really need to focus and settle down and get to work! These oils help support concentration so that we can do the work that we need to do, while also being invigorating so that we can stay focused and at work!

Do you have a favorite focus combination of oils that you love to use?!


We all could use some extra immune support, right?! It is so important that everyday we are supporting our immune systems to stay above the wellness line. And let’s be real, when we’re around a lot of people, whether in classes or the cafeteria or living in a dorm or an apartment full of roommates, things go around, which makes using oils even that much greater!!!

When it comes to immune support, Thieves is always a great go-to! Thieves essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products.

With the benefits of Thieves oil including cleaning power and an irresistibly spicy scent, Young Living offers it as an essential oil blend and as an important ingredient in a full range of home cleaning and personal care products, from dish soap to toothpaste. Looking to make your room smell as clean as it looks (or as you want it to look)? Diffuse Thieves oil throughout the house for an aroma that makes every room smell more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas.
Plus you can share the gift of wellness and immune support with friends—make them a Thieves roller for them to try on their own!

For daily immune support, I have a roller I’ve made of equal parts Thieves, Lemon, Peppermint, and Frankincense that I roll on the bottoms of my feet and down my spine, morning and night! I also love to diffuse this combo!

Some other favorites for immune support? Purification, oregano, clove, eucalyptus radiata, RC, and Raven!

Do you have any favorites for immune support?!


Oh the beauty of laundry day! Are you great at staying on top of your laundry, or are you one of those (like, ahem, me) who waits until things pile up and then all of a sudden you have massive loads of laundry to do?!

Either way—Young Living has the most amazing laundry soap ready for your laundry day needs. Whether you are living at home or visit home just to do laundry (been there!) or you know the beauty of dormitory laundry rooms, you have to try Thieves laundry soap!

With a plant-based formula, Thieves Laundry Soap gently and naturally washes your clothes, cleaning them without any chemical or synthetic residue. Natural enzymes and powerful essential oils add to the formula’s strength to leave your clothes fresh and clean with a light citrus scent.
Thieves Laundry Soap can be used in all washers, including high-efficiency, and its highly concentrated formula (6X) will provide around 64 loads with just 32 fl. Oz (946 ml).

I love how soft and clean my clothes are, and sometimes even add extra drops of oil right to the soap for a little extra scent. I also love using the Seedlings Baby Wipes as dryer sheets, or wool dryer balls with some oil on them!

Have you tried the laundry soap yet?!


Midterm and finals week (and the weeks leading up to them!) can be filled with a lot of stress and a lot of studying and a lot less sleep! Here are some great diffuser blends for some extra support during these hectic weeks of the semester!

Genius Zone:
Sacred Sandalwood
Homework Helper:
Test Stress Buster:
Clary Sage
Study Session:
Rise and Shine:
Sleep Tight:
Peace & Calming
Which one of these are you going to pop into the diffuser first?!


Oh late nights! They always feel so worth it in the moment, but then when you have a huge paper to write the next day or a long night of studying ahead, it can be tough to keep the energy going, am I right?!?

Thankfully Young Living has some great options to help naturally boost our energy so we don’t have to reach for sugary drinks or snacks, or load up on too much caffeine.

Here are my four favorites for energy support!

First, Ningxia Red! NingXia Red combines the extraordinary wolfberry superfruit with pure Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine essential oils, along with blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices to deliver a whole-body nutrient infusion. This powerful formula includes wolfberry, which is touted for its health-supporting benefits, while ongoing research continues to reveal exciting new properties on this ingredient. Enjoy NingXia Red daily to energize, fortify, and revitalize the body and support overall health and wellness, from head to toe. It’s all the amazing immune support that you need to keep your body going, and a great boost of energy as well!!

Second, Ningxia Nitro! When you need a midday (midnight?!) boost, it’s easy to reach for things like soda and energy drinks. Skip the sugary solution and reboot with an option from Young Living. With NingXia Nitro, you’ll get a quick pick-me-up without the sugar or caffeine overload. Infused with essential oils, botanical extracts, D-ribose, Korean ginseng, and green tea extract, NingXia Nitro supports alertness, as well as cognitive and physical fitness. A great support for body and mind wellness, use NingXia Nitro for running, weightlifting, or getting through your afternoon slump. The naturally occurring caffeine in Young Living’s NingXia Nitro supports normal energy levels and alertness to help you with a busy day or a tough workout. Stash Nitro wherever you need it! The small, convenient packaging makes it a great addition to your office desk, gym bag, or purse.
Third, Ningxia Zyng! A hydrating splash of essential oil-infused goodness, NingXia Zyng™ uses the same whole-fruit wolfberry puree found in our popular superfruit supplement, NingXia Red®. We add sparkling water, pear and blackberry juices, and a hint of Lime and Black Pepper essential oils for a dynamic, unique taste. You’ll enjoy a refreshing boost that’s full of flavor without artificial flavors and preservatives. With natural flavors and sweeteners, white tea extract, and added vitamins, NingXia Zyng delivers 35 mg of naturally occurring caffeine and only 35 calories per can, making it a sweet, guilt-free boost for your early morning, long afternoon, or anytime you need a little Zyng! It’s an energy drink you can feel good about!

Lastly, one of my favorite oils—En R Gee! Fresh and herbaceous, En-R-Gee essential oil blend offers an invigorating aromatic boost when you need it most. Diffuse or apply it topically during your morning routine or before any activity to enjoy the stimulating, spicy-pine fragrance of Rosemary, Juniper, Lemongrass, Nutmeg, Balsam Fir, Clove, and Black Pepper essential oils. I put a drop on each of my big toes first thing in the morning, and whenever I need a little extra energy support throughout the day. I’ll even diffuse it with tangerine at times if I need a little extra pep!!
Are you an all nighter kind of person?!? Whether you are or not, we all have moments when we can use a little extra energy support. Thankfully Young Living has us covered.


These inevitable study times—whether we dread them or joyfully accept them, let’s just admit that at times it can be hard to settle down and get serious about work. Or maybe it’s just me??!?! Here are some great oils to use to help focus and settle down to study and do work!

+ Vetiver – this oil has a distinct earthy and grounding scent to it. Use this oil to help focus and stay calm during tense times! This one is a MUST in for your homework routine!

+ GeneYus – Similar in sesquiterpenes levels to Brain Power, it is formulated to help you focus and concentrate on your task at hand! Put a roller attachment on this one and roll it on before the school day begins, or even put it in your bag so that you can use it throughout the day!

+ Cedarwood - working with the brain to reset faulty patterns and create new, healthier ways to learn and function, you will find that sleep may just turn into something that rejuvenates you body and soul. GREAT for grounding, support in calming down- a wonder oil paired up with vetiver in "off to school" roller!

+ Lavender - Remember, it's our sweet Grandmother oil! Gentle, soft, comforting, relaxing, and all about making us at home. This is the Swiss Army knife of oils, good for anything!

+Bergamot - this is an incredible oil for emotional support, very emotionally grounding. This one is great for support when calming down and taking that time to get ready to focus!

+ Brain Power – helps to promote a sense of clarity and focus. Gives your brain the support it needs to do the work it needs to do!

Diffuse these oils! Use them topically! Carry them to class with you or to the library when you have a big project coming or a long night of studying! You’ll be glad for their extra support!


Maybe you experience it at times, and maybe you don’t. But if you go through times of homesickness or just need a little emotional support, then this roller is for you! Combine equal parts of Peace & Calming, Valor, Stress Away, and Frankincense into a roller bottle and fill it up with the carrier oil of your choice. These oils help to soothe the emotions and bring you courage to help you keep going. Reach for this whenever you need a little extra emotional support. It’s like a giant hug for your heart, just in a bottle!


Our college years are great years of our lives, but let’s be honest, we don’t always have a lot of extra money rolling around in our pockets, right?! So let’s chat about different ways we can embrace wellness on a budget.

First tip—make rollers with your oils so that they last longer! If you put, say, 10 drops of Thieves into a roller and then fill the rest with carrier oil, it will go much further than if you just use it straight out of the bottle. This can be helpful when we want to use our oils daily to stay above the wellness line, but use them sparingly. There are also so many different oils under $20 as you seek to build up your oily stash!

Consider signing up some friends and family in order to pay for your oils—did you know that when someone signs up under you, you qualify to earn $50? So if you sign up three friends, that’s $150! Which can go right back into your wellness budget and get your Essential Rewards order paid for.
Speaking of Essential Rewards—why not spread the love?!?! Do you live in a dorm?! Ask your friends and floor-mates if there is anything that they would like to try. Share the gift of wellness with others and go in on it together. One of my friends has really gotten to know some of the women who clean her dorm, and has gifted Thieves cleaner to some of the janitorial staff at her university who has completely fallen in love with it! Can you imagine if your whole school was stocked with Thieves?!?!? Get your school onboard!

If you have any questions about how you can get your oils/makeup/supplements, etc. paid for, be sure to reach out! We’ll get you all hooked up!


Thanks so much for joining us tonight! We hope that you enjoyed this class. Cheering you on as you finish this semester strong!

Lake Effect Snow and A Bay Full of Fish

I painted this diptych
thinking about what might be happening
in the water beneath the unforgiving winter winds;
deep below the vicious white capped waves
and whipping icy snow squalls.

I imagined beauty and nature's beauties
socializing and looking fine!

Patti Friday: Essential Oils 101 Script


Are you ready to take back control of your health and even your finances? Are you ready to maintain good health, and good body functions overall? Essential oils are a healthy, safe and are an effective way to help with many ailments that so commonly affect us on a daily basis. Today's lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical and emotional wellness. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and diminish energy levels. Anything from weight management, to cleansing your body and mind, Young Living Essential Oils support every system of the body. Using essential oils and essential oil-infused supplements can provide the targeted solutions you need to restore balance and feel your very best. Essential Oils; 

• Are Immune enhancing
• Support the body’s natural defenses
• Aid in maintaining normal cellular regeneration
• Are mood elevating
• Are high in antioxidants
• Are aromatic
• Are oxygenating
• Boost stamina and energy
• Help you relax
• Help manage stress and frustration
• Improve mental clarity
• Promote overall health, vitality, and longevity

I am not a medical professional, and cannot treat, cure or diagnose you. This information is for educational purposes only. Always consult a doctor first. More than likely your doctor will not be trained in essential oils and will not know all the facts about them, so do your own research first. We are our own advocate.*

LISTEN to AUDIO:  Essential Oils 101

LISTEN to AUDIO:  Toxin Free Life 

What are Essential Oils? Essential Oils are the life blood of the plant that initiates regeneration into the cells. Anything that our blood does for us is what the essential oils do for the plant. They carry nutrients and oxygen to the different organs in our body and can effectively combat the damaging effects of toxins, impurities and harmful substances in and around our body Essential Oils will NEVER expire.

Essential Oils have a unique ability to penetrate the cell wall. Essential oils are made up of very tiny molecules that have the ability in its chemical structure to penetrate the cell membrane and transport oxygen and nutrients inside the cell, thus giving more support to the immune system. Essential Oils are very powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals that our bodies are in contact with daily. Free radicals come from sources outside your body, such as tobacco smoke, toxins, or pollutants, and can damage your body's cells, proteins, and DNA by altering their chemical structure. 

Now that we have discussed what essential oils are, you might be wondering the difference between Young Living Essential Oils and the oils found in your local health food stores. What is sold there I cannot attest to and I want to make it clear that I am ONLY TALKING ABOUT Young Living Essential Oils. If an oil bottle label says “Topical”, “For External Use Only”, “Do not take internally”, or “Do not ingest” then there’s your red flag that it’s been adulterated and is not safe. Understand that if you go out to a garden and pick a peppermint leaf off of the plant, it is safe to eat. If the oil was 100% pure as it says it is, then you should be able to ingest it. Do not be fooled! There IS a difference between a $6 Lavender and a $23.50 (wholesale cost) Young Living bottle of Lavender. 

Let me share some background about Young Living Essential Oils. Young Living was founded in 1993, and is the oldest, most trusted essential oil company in the world. Young Living has 20+ years of research and experience. They are the only essential oil company with their own farms and have a seed to seal guarantee. Our proprietary Seed to Seal process is the heart of our commitment to purity and authenticity. You deserve products that are genuine, free of synthetic chemicals, and of unmatched purity, and that is what you get with the Young Living. Seed to Seal® is both a promise to you and a reflection of our sense of global stewardship. Through each step of our production process on both our own farms and partner farms, we use the highest standards possible to make our products, your life, and the earth better. From the time the seed is sourced until the oil is sealed in the bottle, we apply the most rigorous quality controls possible to ensure that you are receiving essential oils exactly the way nature intended. Only one company can make the Seed to Seal promise, and that is Young Living.

They are the world leader in producing and guaranteeing 100% pure and potent, Genuine THERAPEUTIC grade essential oils. Gary Young has built 8 farms around the world, not including their partnered farms that too uphold the Young Living quality and standards. They love for their members to be a part of the seed plantings, all the way to the harvest and distillation process. Young Living uses its own internal labs, in addition to third-party audits, to verify that international purity and potency standards are met and surpassed. There are no pesticides or chemicals used on their farms. They have a crews that hand picks the weeds.

Young Living completes 8 different tests on EVERY BATCH OF OIL that is made, yet only 30% of oil samples tested are sold. The rest are used on Young Living farms as a natural herbicide.* (Dr. Cole Woolley)

Essential Oils date back to 4500 BC.* They are God given oils and work perfectly with the body. God created oils for our healing. Oils are in 70% of the books of the Bible and are mentioned 188 times.

How to use Essential Oils:

Topically- Because of their molecular structure, Essential Oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. Applying the oils to the Vita-flex points on a foot that relates to organ system will activate their reflex (show chart). Applying the oils to your feet is a great way to absorb the oils into your body. With over 2,000 pores in each foot, they have some of the largest pores on your body. You can bathe in the oils. It is best to mix 15-20 drops with Epsom salt in a separate bowl, then pour the bowl in the bathtub.

Direct Inhalation- Fragrance is the substance of memories. Research shows that when inhaling the pure constituents in these oils, it can stimulate the olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. Hence, in less than a second, a scent has the power to activate a number of physical and emotional responses. This causes the pituitary gland to be stimulated and release chemical messages that travel via the blood to your glands and organs that create physical body responses. That is why inhaling the oils can have a great effect on emotions. The only way to reach that part of your brain is not orally, but through your nose.

Diffuse- Harsh chemical formulas aren’t your only home cleansing option. Enjoy peace of mind without compromise when diffusing Young Living Essential Oils. By diffusing, it helps to purify and cleanse the air from environmental impurities including cigarette smoke and other disagreeable odors.

*75% of American homes use synthetic air fresheners that contain numerous amounts of chemical agents that have been linked to cancer. Formaldehyde is in air fresheners. The olfactory nerve is a pathway to the brain, which when it is being hit with formaldehyde, it will disrupt the endocrine system. It actually deadens that nerve, which decreases your nose from being able to smell as well. Formaldehyde is the #1 cancer causing chemical and is what you are embalmed with at the morgue.

Internally- You can put oils in an empty vegetable capsule. You can drink the oils in a glass of water, juice or tea. You can cook with the oils and add them in your food. The oils that are safe to take internally will be labeled as a supplement.
-You can put these oils in every orifice in your body but your eyes and ears, and only because it will burn.

Essential Oils Safety Tips:

- Do not put essential oils directly in eyes or ear canal, it will burn. 
- If an essential oil gets in your eye, put milk or a carrier oil around the eye for relief. Do NOT use water!
- If an essential oil feels hot to the skin, immediately apply a carrier oil on the area for relief. 
- If a rash occurs at any time after application of an oil, refrain from applying topically for a few days, and start back slowly with dilution of a carrier oil.
- Pregnant women, epileptics, and those with high blood pressure should consult their doctors as there are a few oils that should be avoided. 
- Essential Oils are not recommended orally or topically for anyone undergoing chemo or radiation. Inhaling the oils for relaxation purposes, emotional purposes, or occasional nausea is fine. 
- No peppermint, rosemary, or eucalyptus under the age of 5, and wintergreen under the age of 12. If previously applied with no reaction, continue use.
- Citrus oils are photosensitive, so if applied topically, avoid being in the sun for a long period of time.
- If you are allergic to anything, always read the label. 
- If taking medication on a regular basis, always consult your doctor. 

Examples of Carrier Oils: 
Organic and unrefined Olive, Grapeseed, Almond, and Coconut oil. We use Carrier oils with an essential oil when an essential oil feels too “hot” on the skin. Clove, Cinnamon, Oregano, Thieves, and Lemon are examples of “hot oils” that may need to be diluted with a carrier oil. However, when putting a “hot” oil on your feet, it does not need to be diluted with a carrier oil.

Premium Starter Kit- Young Living put these 10 oils together so you can do just about everything with this one kit. 

1) Lavender- Is called the “Swiss Army knife” of oils. Lavender is one of history’s most celebrated and versatile essential oils. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Young Living's Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The French scientist René Gattefossé was among the first to discover these properties when he was severely burned in a laboratory explosion. 

The many plant constituents in lavender essential oil contribute to a vast range of usage. Today, we use lavender to cleanse, support normal sleep, ease occasional depressed moods, soothe sun-exposed skin, as a tea, and to reduce stress.

• Lavender oil is one of the safest essential oils and can be applied undiluted to the skin. The benefits of lavender essential oil are limitless, and modern research will continue to yield new and exciting uses for this amazing plant. 
• It takes 170-250 lbs. of lavender plant material to make just 1 lb. of Lavender oil. 
• Lavender may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.

Primary Benefits:
• Balances normal body functions*
• Supports normal sleep*
• Cleanses skin irritations*
• Soothes and relaxes the mind and body*
• Eases bodily tension and stress*
• Helps seasonal irritants
• Ease occasional depressed moods
• Soothe sun exposed skin
• Cleanse common cuts, scrapes, and bug bites

2) Peppermint- Young Living peppermint oil is so potent and pure that ONE DROP delivers the effectiveness of 26 cups of pure peppermint tea. 
Peppermint has a strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion, it may also restore digestive functions.* 

• Jean Valnet MD studied peppermint's supportive effect on the liver and respiratory systems. 
• Other scientists have also 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. 
*University of Cincinnati found that inhaling peppermint oil increased mental accuracy by 28 percent.*
• Alan Hirsch MD studied peppermint's ability to directly affect the brain's satiety center, which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals. 
• Interesting fact: You can mix a 15-ml bottle of peppermint essential oil into a 5-gallon can of paint to dispel the fumes.
• Peppermint may also be used to enhance the flavor of food and water.
Primary Benefits:
• One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion*
• Supports digestive efficiency *
• May improve taste and smell when inhaled*
• May improve concentration and mental acuity*
• Helps alleviate minor aches associated with daily life
• Helps occasional gas
• Helps occasional heartburn
• Helps with upset/sour stomach
• Encourages proper nasal function
Who else would benefit from Peppermint Essential Oil?
• Individuals seeking a natural way to soothe muscles*
• Those looking to fill the air with a fresh, energizing aroma
• Those looking for a lift in mental acuity and concentration*
• Anyone seeking natural support for proper digestive function*

3) Lemon- Young Living's Lemon oil is cold pressed from the rind of the lemon, not from the pulpy acidic juice. As you know, the vitamins and nutrients are in the rind itself. It is full of antioxidants that has been linked to healthy immune system function. Remember, antioxidants create an unfriendly environment for free radicals that our bodies are in contact with daily. 

• University researchers in Japan found when aromas were diffused during test taking, scores increased by as much as 50 percent. 
• Since Lemon oil is cold pressed from the rind, it does not have the acidic effect, which is hard on our teeth enamel. 
• Lemon is also an important ingredient in natural cosmetics that may be useful for cleansing the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.*
• In his book, The Practice of Aromatherapy, Dr. Jean Valnet, M.D. wrote that lemon is a tonic for supporting the nervous and sympathetic nervous system. He also stated that the essential oil of lemon acts as a liver decongestant and diuretic and is a powerful body cleanser.*
• It takes 43 lemon rinds to cold press 1 bottle of lemon oil.*

**Caution** Avoid applying to skin that will be exposed to prolonged sunlight or UV light within 24 hours. Use a nontoxic sunscreen as citrus oils make the skin more photosensitive. **

- Lemon oil will eat up petrochemicals in our body. If you ever drank from a plastic water bottle, you’ve been exposed. Use in glass, stainless steel, and ceramic only because it will eat through the petrochemicals in plastic or styrofoam. 

Primary Benefits:
• Supports digestive efficiency *
• May improve concentration and mental acuity*
• Helps with occasional gas
• Helps of occasional heartburn
• Helps occasional constipation
• Helps occasional heartburn
• Helps upset/sour stomach

4) Frankincense- A VERY valuable and sought after oil. Frankincense was valued more than gold during ancient times, and only those with great wealth and abundance possessed it. It is mentioned in one of the oldest known medical records called the Ebers Papyrus (dating from sixteenth century B.C.) with an ancient Egyptian list of 877 prescriptions and recipes. The distillation process takes 2 weeks and a frankincense tree cannot be tapped into unless it is at least 40 years old. Young Living has a frankincense and myrrh tree farm in Oman. 

Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research. 

• Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks.
• Why is Frankincense so helpful for emotions? Frankincense is high in sesquiterpenes. They act on the pineal gland, which is the gland considered the seat of emotions. Remember, research shows that when inhaling the pure constituents in these oils, can stimulate the olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind.
• Frankincense has a visual tightening effect on the skin and may benefit older, more mature skin. 
• Slows signs of aging on the skin, such as liver spots
• When used on a regular basis topically and internally, can aid in maintaining normal cellular regeneration. 
• Frankincense trees grow out of polished marble rocks, without soil. 
• Frankincense is as versatile as Lavender

5) PanAway- Blend of 4 Oils (Wintergreen, Clove, Helichrysum, Peppermint) Does what it sounds like, can help relieve aches and discomfort that come along with daily activates. If you have localized soreness after gardening, shopping, working out, or any other physical activity, reach for PanAway. This proprietary blend is made of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils that penetrate the skin and soothe soreness after strenuous activity. Gary Young created the blend after a severe injury to his leg. It integrates the soothing properties of helichrysum, wintergreen, clove, and peppermint, and can be used to relieve sore muscles and enhance overall well-being.

• Helichrysum has been studied by European researchers for regenerating tissue and improving circulation. In short supply, helichrysum is one of Young Living’s most prized essential oils.
• Wintergreen has historically been used to reduce various types of discomfort.
• Clove stimulates and revitalizes immune function and is known for its antioxidant properties.

-Peppermint is one of the most highly regarded herbs for soothing discomfort. It has also been found to relieve tension and discomfort of the neck and head.
• Supports healthy joint and cartilage function
• Helps relieve the occasional headache

6) Purification- Blend of 6 Oils (Lemongrass, Rosemary, Lavindin, Melaleuca (M. alternifolia), Myrtle, Citronella)

The cleansing effect of Purification helps cleanse and neutralize mildew, cigarette smoke, disagreeable odors, cat urine, hotel rooms, paint odors, and odors in clothes and shoes. 
- Use for bites from spiders, wasps, bees, mosquito’s, and ants. 
• Purification contains citronella essential oil, which is commonly used as an insect repellent.*
• Adding a couple of drops of Purification to your washing machine helps keep your laundry fresh.
