When I decided to share my TOP 5 Young Living Essential Oils, I had to think about it. I love and use so many of them in my family’s daily life, and it was (really) hard to choose! BUT I have risen to the task, and finally come up with my must-have list.
Thieves Essential Oil Blend
I would bet this oil is on about 99% of people’s must-have lists. We use Thieves Essential Oil blend on the bottom of our feet daily to help with immune system support. It is also diffused often around our house to purify the air. We LOVE all of our Thieves-infused products like Thieves Household Cleaner and Thieves natural hand sanitizer. Don’t leave home without your Thieves!
Fun Fact: Did you know Thieves got its name from thieves (also perfumers by trade) who were robbing the graves of people who had died from the black plague? Finally when the thieves were captured, they gave up their recipe for staying healthy and not catching the black plague for a lighter sentence from the King. The recipe we use today for our Thieves Essential Oil blend comes from those thieves. How Cool!
Myrrh Essential Oil
This oil is my favorite “beauty” oil. Every night I apply Myrrh all over my face. It leaves my skin feeling soft but not greasy and helps maintain clear skin. It has evened out my skin tone and helped rid me of those icky dry skin patches, too. I also loved this oil for my belly when I was pregnant. I used it regularly with coconut oil to keep my skin looking clear and smooth.
Fun Tip: Is your Myrrh Oil bottle lid constantly getting stuck? Rub some coconut oil all along the rim of the bottle and inside the lid. It will loosen the lid and keep it easy to open for months!
Frankincense Essential Oil
Love love love this oil! Not only is it one of the Bible oils given to baby Jesus, but it also has great benefits. In the history books it says it was used from head to toe. When in doubt and not sure what oil to use, I pick up my Frankincense first. It relaxes me and supports skin health. I have also noticed that applying this oil daily to my little one keeps him in a much better mood overall and helps maintain his health. Many people also like to use it daily on the face for fine lines and wrinkles. Frankincense is an oil you can’t go wrong with!
Fun Fact: Did you know Frankincense Oil is actually produced from the resin of the Frankincense tree? The tree looks like a giant Bonsai tree. Check it out!
DiGize Essential Oil Blend
DiGize is my go-to if I eat too much, eat the wrong thing or even just don’t feel quite right. I also used it a lot while I was pregnant to help with that stubborn burning sensation in my throat every time I ate anything! It is my favorite oil for digestion support.
Fun Tip: Can’t remember what DiGize is used for? Just think, DiGize = Digestion
Idaho Balsam Fir Essential Oil
From the beginning, I always loved the smell of this oil and was drawn to it. It helps me feel relaxed and eases my mind when it’s racing. I have also learned to love it for a better night’s rest as part of my bedtime routine.
Fun Tip: If for some reason I don’t have any Frankincense on hand, I typically grab my Idaho Balsam Fir instead.
