Not Just For Beauty: 3 Ways to Use Essential Oils in Your Home

In the same way every home needs a table where you can gather to eat, a comfortable chair where you can relax and a quiet space where you can work, no household is complete without a stockpile of essential oils. Essential oils can enhance each of these spaces, while also providing many other benefits to your home and happiness. They can do it all.

Essential oils are safe and natural, unlike chemical-filled products on the market. In fact, one of the only things you have to worry about when purchasing your essential oils is whether or not they were grown organically. Young Living offers organically grown, therapeutic-grade essential oils at an affordable price, especially when you sign up to be a wholesale member. A wholesale membership allows you to purchase essential oils at a 24% discount and help your friends eliminate chemicals from their lives, too, by making such high quality oils accessible to them. Young Living also offers essential oil blends, for those days when you’re not feeling up to mixing your own. Below are three essential oil recipes that you can use in your home:

All-natural cleaner


5 drops Lemon Oil

5 drops Eucalyptus Oil

5 drops Clove Oil

Lemon is a natural disinfectant, eucalyptus is effective in removing grease and clove oil will neutralize unpleasant odors and kill mold and fungus. Add these three essential oils to a spray bottle with distilled or boiled water and clean away! Young Living also sells an essential oil-based household cleaner if you want to skip the mixing. It’s a combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary that you can feel good about using in your home.

Allergy Relief



5 drops Lavender Oil

5 drops Peppermint Oil

5 drops Tea Tree Oil

Pollen is one of the main culprits of allergies. This airborne allergen can leave your family with itchy eyes, scratchy throats and stuffy noses. Luckily, you can use essential oils to fight back. Fight fire with fire, or flower pollen with flower extract, as the case may be, and combine these oils in your diffuser for allergy relief. Lavender will bring down inflammation caused by pollen, peppermint will open up your sinuses and allow you to breath better, and tea tree oil will destroy the pollen and other airborne allergens while they’re lingering in the air of your home. It’s so satisfying to find relief against natural pollen irritants through natural plant oils. Young Living actually owns their own organic farms where they produce the highest quality essential oils—when you’re a member, you can visit! Just be sure to bring your allergy-relief blend.

Insect Repellent


5 drops Citronella Oil

5 drops Rosemary Oil

5 drops Vanilla Oil

Mosquitos and other bugs are irritating and their bites are downright itchy and painful, not to mention all of the diseases they can carry. Insect repellent can be just as scary though, with its long list of chemical ingredients and health warnings. By using essential oils, you can say goodbye to harmful bug sprays and instead create your own, all natural, effective insect repellent. This combination of oils, best applied via a carrier oil on exposed skin, will repel bugs and leave you smelling fresh and sweet, It’s important to use therapeutic-grade essential oils, especially when mixing a bug spray, or you’ll leave yourself vulnerable to mosquito bites. Unlike some of the other companies out there, Young Living essential oils are therapeutic-grade and grown in organic farms, not created in a lab. You can feel safe putting your trust in Young Living’s oils to keep your family safe from mosquitos.
