The last two weeks we’ve shared easy ways to use every last drop of your fave Young Living products. Check them out! And thanks again to our contributors Cynthia and Lindsey!

Today, I am continuing our Oily Hacks series with 20 (!) Young Living Products with more than one purpose! I call them our Dynamic DuOils, and I hope that by the end you’ll be singing my tune and trying these tips. Finding new ways to use a product you love is always a win-win and a toxic-free choice.

Did you know that you could use Young Living Lavender Lip Balm 3 different ways in your diaper bag?! Check out all of our Double Duty Products! 

Did you know that you could use Young Living Lavender Lip Balm 3 different ways in your diaper bag?! Check out all of our Double Duty Products! 

1. Seedlings Wipes

Clean Savvy Mineral makeup brushes. Quickly remove makeup at night and cleanse your skin.

2. AlkaLime Powder

Make a paste with water and apply to skin for soothing benefits.

3. Mineral Essence

Apply topically to sooth skin.

Pro Tip: Can apply behind the knees(where the skin is thin) at night for kids who won’t take it.

4. Lavaderm/Misting Spray

Comb through to detangle hair. Use Lavaderm instead of Misting Spray with Savvy Minerals

5. Lavender Lotion

Use just a dab as leave in conditioner.

6. Lavender Lip Balm

Keep in your diaper bag for:

  • diaper changings
  • sun exposure
  • aid the skin after a fall on the playground

7. Mirah Shave Oil/Seedlings Baby Oil

Add to your cosmetic bag for:

  • deep conditioner for hair
  • eye makeup remover
  • cuticle oil
  • light face primer before makeup
  • razor bumps/burns

8. Rose Ointment

Keep in your bathroom for:

  • smooth lips
  • dry winter noses
  • flyaway hairs and frizz

9. ClaraDerm

Facial moisturizer and primer for Savvy Minerals makeup.

10. Art Toner

Spray on hair for frizz control and beautiful shine.

11. Tender Tush

Soothe stretch marks and help to tighten skin.

12. Animal Scents Ointment/Rose Ointment

Use these versatile ointments in two ways:

  • Coat inside your nose with q tip to help protect from toxins and outdoor exposure.
  • Apply to the feet and elbows at nighttime for beautiful skin in the morning

13. Thieves Dishwasher Detergent

 Use as a scouring scrub for pots, pans, grout, sink or anything stubborn.

Pro Tip: Add a drop of lemon or orange oil for an extra punch!

14. Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste

Stay fresh & clean, use as a deodorant.

15. Thieves Hand Purifier

Use to remove permanent marker and pen off of surfaces. Use to wipe down tech devices and sunglasses.

16. Thieves Household Cleaner

Achieve a deeper clean by using in carpet-cleaning vacuums - I have even seen it remove pink nail polish from carpet! Also use as stain remover for clothes or a boost in your automatic dishwasher.

Pro Tip: Use to soak and clean jewelry, but not recommended for pearls. Add baking soda for an extra punch.

17. Thieves Mouthwash

Soak oral night guard or retainer for cleansing.

18. Thieves & Lavender Foaming hand soap

 Use as facial wash.

Pro Tip: Thieves can be great for stubborn skin.

19. Thieves Dish Soap

 Clean glass stovetop (just a dab). It is the only thing that works on mine! Be sure to make your product last longer by dispensing in a foaming pump.

20 Thieves Spray

Use under your arms on hot days and inside your shoes. Keep in your bag as an "on the go" spot remover.

Oily Hacks: Get the Most Out of Your Favorite Products

Our  guest blogger today is Cynthia Lengefeld: wife, mom, grandma and a Young Living Silver. We love her practical approach to oils and we’re excited to share her budget-friendly post today! Get in touch for more tips!

Did someone mention oily hacks?  Let’s talk!  Everyone loves a money-stretching product tip, am I right?!

Don't leave a bit of product in the packaging! We share our top tips on how to stretch product life and get the most bang for your buck.

Don't leave a bit of product in the packaging! We share our top tips on how to stretch product life and get the most bang for your buck.

Squeeze Out Extra Value: Thrifty Tube Trick

Let’s start with all the products in the squeeze tubes: Thieves Aromabright Toothpaste, Thieves Dentarome Toothpaste, Satin Facial Scrub Mint, Shutran Shave Cream, Seedlings Diaper Rash Cream, KidScents Tender Tush, KidScents Slique Toothpaste, Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream, Cool Azul Sports Gel, and Prenolone +.

When these tubes seem empty, they aren’t! They hold (what seems like to me) an endless supply of product. When the squeezing stops producing results, use scissors to cut the tube about an inch or two below the crimped edge. Open that baby up, and you’ll see ALL the goodness still screaming to be used. Don’t discard that cute little crimped top. It acts as a lid and protector as it slips right inside the end of the tube.  Don’t be afraid to dip that toothbrush or your clean fingers inside the tube, to grab the last bit of product. It could last another week! Who doesn’t want a week of “free” product?!

Recipe for Savings: Just Add Distilled Water

Since we are all interested in maximizing our dollars, let’s talk about how a little distilled water could change your life!  How about that Thieves Hand Soap?  Purchase the refill (always), and then when refilling the foaming pump bottles fill ½ with the soap refill and the other half with distilled water.  You’re welcome!  

Oh, the distilled water trick? Try it on your Orange Blossom Face Wash, too. In fact, repurpose a foaming hand soap dispenser for your Orange Blossom Face Wash/distilled water mixture. Combine 1/3 OBFW + 2/3 distilled water = instant OBFW foaming awesomeness!  

Smells Like Savings: Get the Most Out of Your Deodorant

I almost forgot about the Mountain Mint or Mountain Mist deodorant! When the deodorant pad has been rolled up as far as it will roll, and you KNOW (because you can see it) there is more deodorant but the silly things keeps falling off the stem, just take the deodorant pad off the stem. I keep the deodorant pad face down in the deodorant cap and throw the rest of the pieces and parts away.

Around my house, I never get the new deodorant! I get the pad off the old one when my husband is ready for a new stick. My “pad” lasts me as long as it takes him to use the whole stick! If you are a bit squeamish about using a “used” deodorant pad, just take a tissue and wipe it off before you apply it the first time.

Switch & Ditch: Personal Care Edition

Did anyone already switch to all-natural cleaning products (like this one!) and ditch your chemical-heavy cleaning cohorts? Let us know! A clean sweep never felt or smelled so good.

This week, we are continuing our switch and ditch theme, but now: it’s getting personal. Personal care products, that is.

As far as personal wellness goals go, treating your skin to natural products should be right there on your resolution list along with healthy diet and exercise. And Young Living has plenty of all-natural, essential-oil infused goodies. Ready for some switch and ditch tips? We thought so.  

Switch & Ditch: Personal Care Edition

Make your 2017 resolution a reality with a few of our favorites like the  ART skincare system , Young Living's super popular face cream, foaming face wash and toner.

Oral Care

Let’s start with something you do everyday: brush your teeth. Time to ditch toothpaste with artificial sweeteners and toxic chemicals and switch to natural toothpaste that will freshen your breath and gently wash away staining.

The Thieves lines makes this easy. Try one of three Thieves lines toothpastes along with Thieves Dental Floss and Thieves Fresh Essence Mouthwash.

Hand Care

Make sure washing or cleaning your hands actually washes and cleanses without artificial fragrances or toxins.

I’m in love with the Thieves Foaming hand soap. It smells wonderful and is a great way to introduce guests to Thieves goodness. For on-the-go cleansing, Thieves Waterless Hand Cleanser is on my must-travel list.

Face Care

Whether you are focusing on cleansing, restoring, moisturizing or refining, Young Living has products and oils to try. Some of my favorite anti-aging oils include:

  • Rose - high-frequency oil great for moisturizing and refining skin
  • Patchouli - favorite oil for daily moisturizing
  • Lavender - skin MVP, a must for cleansing, moisturizing and refining
  • Frankincense - sacred oil that restores and moisturizes skin  
  • Myrrh - another must-have for moisturizing  

Start slow and experiment. We suggest adding a beauty oil to your order each month. Everyone is different, so everyone will have different favorites. Once you find your favorites, here are a few tips to get the most out of your beauty regime (and save some money).

Make a Homemade Cream

Make your own body and face cream and infuse with your favorite essential oils. That way you get a daily dose of oils, while stretching your supply.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shea butter
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup liquid oil (like almond, grapeseed, jojoba or avocado oil)
  • 5-10 drops of essential oils of choice

Directions:

  1. Melt shea butter and coconut oil on stovetop
  2. Let cool completely
  3. Add liquid oil and essential oils for choice
  4. Whip to decadent texture

Homemade Serums

Another way to stretch your beauty oils and save time in your routine: create your own serums. Add your favorite oils and apply after your cream morning and night. To make, you will need to gather a few supplies like 1-oz glass bottles, roller ball fitments and funnels.

Ingredients:

  • 1-oz. favorite carrier oil (again: think liquid food oils like almond, grapeseed or avocado)
  • 1-2 drops each of your favorite anti-aging oils

Directions:

Combine ingredients in a small, amber glass bottle. Yup, it’s that easy!

Hair Care

Tame your locks with natural care products. This one is especially important, considering when you rinse off shampoo it flows down the rest of your body. Young Living has some great daily shampoos (like yummy Lavender Mint) to nourish and cleanse hair.

You can also add oils to your hair care routine. When styling, I add a drop of Ylang Ylang to my hair for a gorgeous floral scent and curl-boosting moisture. Other great hair oils include:

  • Geranium - rehydrates hair, try adding to your conditioner
  • Lavender - nourishes and may thicken hair
  • Rosemary - allows nutrients to penetrate hair and scalp
  • Tea Tree - soothes your scalp

Body Care

Body Wash

Like hair care products, body wash is exposed to large parts of your body. Making your own body wash was never easier with Young Living’s bath and shower gel base. Just add 5-10 drops of your favorite oil. Any of our favorite hair and skin oils would work, or you can try an uplifting blend like Joy.

Deodorants

And finally, we’ll end with another daily personal care product: Deodorant. Young Living offers great aluminum-free options that smell great! (Like this one). You can also experiment using an oil as a deodorant. Purification is a great, cleansing and aromatically fresh option to try!

Switch, Ditch & Save

Ready to ditch commercially produced personal care products? Easy. Switch to buying your natural shampoo, hand soap and floss with Young Living’s autoship program, Essential Rewards. We love it because we get to buy the products we love while earning freebies and points toward even more products we love. We think you will, too!
