Social Media Highlights

April 2020


The majority of our education, and information we share related to essential oils and other non toxic wellness topics is found in our private social media group. Even though we provide a few highlights of what we covered this month here, for more education and an insight of how we use these products, please join our free community.

Essential Oils For Bed Time

Here is my line up essential oils that I pick and choose from when it comes to helping my little ones sleep through the night. This is so important now – us adults need to have some peace and quiet and the end of each day.

These help adults have a restful night too, along with a few other tricks. These are also great for other reasons too, as every oil has more than one purpose.

Of course as it’s me, I’ve lined them up in alphabetical order: Cedarwood, Gentle Baby, Lavender, Peace & Calming, Roman Camomile, Sacred Frankincense, KidScents Sleepize, Stress Away, Valerian and Valor

Do you have a favorite, or another one that you prefer?

Thieves DIY Fizzies

This DIY cleaning tip isn’t specific to spring time, but it’s great for me as I also use this time of year to also finish off remains of opened ingredients.

So, here is the link to a blog for Thieves Fizzies:

They are super easy to make and they have given extra sparkle to our toilets. I think I’ll be popping one down the garage disposal tomorrow to see what happens there.

When making them I was somewhat worried that the mixture was not wet enough – it was like powder still, but my morning they were hard and easy to covert to a jar. 

I made two different shapes as I used the molds/ice containers that I had, and you can see the number I made from the given recipe.

What would be your favorite essential oil aroma for these Thieves fizzies?

Carpet Freshness

 When you’re spring cleaning, don’t forget to freshen your carpets. I love to add orange essential oil, but you may also want to considering adding oils such as clove


Thieves Household Cleaner In Action

  Remnants of winter and signs of spring moisture our no match for our Thieves Household Cleaner, thanks to a post from Danette Goodyear. 

Uncertain Times Roller Blend

 I know many are struggling right now in various different ways. If that’s linked to uncertainty or fears of the unknown these essential oils will come in very handy. They have been proven to impact the brain in a positive way.

If you currently don’t have an empty roller ball bottle (or empty essential oil bottle), put a few drops of each into the diffuser. You may want to try different combinations of them to find your preferred aroma. They truly are excellent options for this time.

For a ‘quick fix’, drop a drop or two of these in the palm of your hand, gently rub your hands together, cup them over your nose and breathe in deeply and slowly.

Try it! Thanks goes to Andrea Orem for the graphic.

Spring Diffuser Recipes

We posted multiple diffuser recipes that are very appropriate, in one way or another, for spring time. Here are a three examples:

There were even several graphics detailing essential oil combinations that were given in  the monthly free promos. 

The Power Of Thieves Spray

  Oh the power of our Thieves Spray, and it’s portable – love it! This is one item I always have in my purse. 

We also provided links to an essential oil researcher discussing findings so far.

Usage Tip

When you have two or more identical spray bottles on your bedroom dresser with different contents, always turn on the light and read the label first before using one.

For example, one way I use Thieves Mouthwash is as a spray for my throat (and for good reason). I also mix up a spritz using the Abundance essential oil blend in a spray bottle, which I use as a non toxic perfume most days (one of my favorite aromas). 

Now, which one do you think I grabbed last night and sprayed in my mouth as I headed to bed with the lights off? 

Well I can now tell you with great authority that Abundance essential oil blend is only labeled for aromatic and topical use for good reason. It is an amazing blend containing the essential oils of: Orange, Frankincense, Patchouli, Clove, Ginger, Myrrh, Cinnamon Bark and Black Spruce.

But it tastes disgusting!!!! Please don’t mistake your healthy perfume for your Thieves Mouthwash spray. 

YL Announcements – COVID-19

At the time of posting, these are some of the more obvious ways that Young Living had stepped up during this time of upheaval:

We all have a part to play in the fight against COVID-19, and as the world leader in essential oils, Young Living is dedicated to our mission of health and  wellness now more than ever. One of the ways we’re stepping up to this challenging time is by partnering with several non-profit organizations to help those in need. These are some of the actions we’ve taken recently to contribute to COVID-19 relief.

💕 We are working with Baby2Baby to fulfill needs for baby essentials and personal care items in family resource centers, homeless shelters, health clinics, and Head Start centers across the nation.

❤️ We donated over 400 pounds of food to the Utah Food Bank after we temporarily closed our on-site cafe.

💚 We offered the use of our corporate buildings in Lehi to the Utah Department of Health as hospital overflow.

💙 Our Philippines office raised funds for the Red Cross to benefit frontline health workers in the country.

💗 Young Living employees sewed 2,000 fabric masks for use by employees in our Spanish Fork warehouse. Operations will continue, with additional masks being donated to local health care organizations.

🧡 The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation donated 1,728 boxes of Gary’s True Grit® Einkorn Flakes Cereal to The Cereal Project, which were distributed via the Jordan Education Foundation Central Principals Pantry to aid local schoolchildren and families.

💜 We donated 500 packs of our Seedlings® Baby Wipes to the Silicon Slopes Serves organization to aid their short supply. This donation will be sent to One Utah Child Care programs.

💛 Our most recent donation to the Tracy Aviary will go to helping them through this very tough time. The aviary’s gates are closed for the time being, so they rely on donations to continue caring for birds and maintaining their grounds and facilities.

💚 The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation recently donated $100,000 to the International Rescue Committee’s COVID-19 response efforts. The IRC helps people impacted by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and regain control of their future. They accomplish this by providing aid in crisis-stricken areas to pave the way for long-term recovery in over 40 countries, including the United States. Amid COVID-19, their needs are growing rapidly.

❤️ Young Living donated 1 percent of all North American proceeds from the Thieves® product line through the month of March 2020 to Meals on Wheels. The total donation, $233,767, was given directly to the Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund.

💙 Young Living will be donating hand sanitizer from our Thieves® line to help combat the COVID-19 health crisis. Donations will go to the frontlines of the pandemic, including fire and police departments, school districts, health care workers, and other vital support areas. The company will continue to make products available to these organizations until demand due to COVID-19 has subsided.
