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!
