Back to School Essentials 

(from the Young Living Blog)

Fall is one of our favorite seasons of the year—it’s cooler than summer, warmer than winter, and the changing colors are simply gorgeous. It’s also the time of the year when school starts again and the hustle and bustle of life seem to go into overdrive.

With so much going on, it’s easy to let wellness take a backseat when you are in full back-to-school preparation mode. Here are a few of our favorite products that are designed to put any student—or parent—in the right state of mind and help support wellness now that school is back in session!

GeneYusYou already know your kid is a genius, but who doesn’t love an extra boost? GeneYus essential oil blend is a sweet mix of Spearmint, Peppermint, Tangerine, and other essential oils that are great for young minds. While they’re focusing on projects, equations, or reading, you can:

  • Diffuse GeneYus on your way to school with the help of our Car Vent Diffuser.
  • Apply it to your child’s wrists or back of their neck before school to help give them an edge.

Feather the Owl Diffuser: New subjects, new grades, and making new friends can be overwhelming. Introduce a new best friend to your home with Feather the Owl! This custom-designed diffuser has a wide variety of functions to be the perfect addition to your home!

  • Keep Feather on a nightstand to act as a night-light while also diffusing a calming blend for a seamless nighttime routine!
  • Feather also has a white-noise option, which can help promote deeper, longer sleep.
  • Try our Back to School diffuser blend featuring Orange, Rosemary, and Peppermint to help kick first day jitters!

NingXia Red® Singles: On average, children are eating about 19 teaspoons per day of sugar. That’s three times more than the recommended dose! Kick those sugary drinks in the morning and replace them with one of our NingXia Red Singles for a quick superfruit meal.

MightyVitesGet ahead of the wellness game with MightyVites. Made with Wolfberry powder, these easy-to-chew tablets are a quick way to get your kiddos the best nutrient-dense vitamins and minerals with breakfast or as a little boost with dinner after a long day.

The ultimate guide to CBD products (plus why you need each one in your squad)

from the Young Living Blog)


When you think of squad goals, you might think of the quirky cast of a popular TV show, a group of stylish friends who are always posing together for the ’gram, or even your own loyal friend group. We’re here to give the phrase “squad goals” a whole new meaning. Let us introduce you to our newest and coolest best friends at Nature’s Ultra—CBD products infused with essential oils!


But hold on a second! What is CBD, and who is Nature’s Ultra? We’re glad you asked. Before we introduce you to the CBD squad, let’s go over some questions you might have.


Q: What is CBD?


CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a plant-based compound found in hemp—the same plant from which we get hemp seed milk (a yummy alternative to cow’s milk), fabric, and bird feed. Nature’s Ultra makes their CBD products by dissolving CBD in fractionated coconut oil. When you use CBD products, your body’s endocannabinoid system is affected.


A common misconception is that taking CBD will get you high. While CBD is used for many things, getting high isn’t one of them! Pure CBD—known as CBD isolate—contains no THC, which is the mind-altering chemical found in marijuana. That means you can take CBD without having to worry about the effects of THC or binge eating all the snacks in your kitchen.


Q: Where does Nature’s Ultra CBD come from?

 

Nature’s Ultra gets their CBD from farms in Colorado that are dedicated to sustainable farming practices. They don’t use any pesticides, and they rigorously test each product to ensure it’s free of heavy metals. To avoid adding harsh chemicals to their products, Nature’s Ultra uses food-grade carbon dioxide to extract CBD from hemp plants.


Q: Are Nature’s Ultra and Young Living partners?

 

Yes! Nature’s Ultra is a wholly-owned partner, meaning we own the company, but it still operates independently. That means when you shop their products, Nature’s Ultra—not Young Living—fulfills and ships your order. They’re also the ones to turn to when you have questions about CBD products.


One of the factors that motivated the acquisition of Nature’s Ultra is that we recognized they share many of the same values as we do. They even share our Seed to Seal® commitment to quality, which we’ve verified through visits to their farms. Nature’s Ultra and Young Living are a match made in health! Like Peppermint and productivity or Frankincense and meditation, we are better together.


Q: What ingredients are in these products?

 

As you already know, we take special care to use only the highest-quality ingredients. Mirroring our own commitment, Nature’s Ultra uses only the finest, purest CBD. Most of Nature’s Ultra’s CBD products contain CBD isolate, organic stevia leaf extract, MCT coconut oil, and Young Living essential oils. However, their CBD for pets doesn’t have any essential oils or stevia.


Meet the Nature’s Ultra CBD squad

Now that you have the facts, you’re ready to find out why Nature’s Ultra has the coolest squad around. Meet five of Nature’s Ultra’s CBD products and where they fit into your friend group.

Get a whiff of this: DIY bathroom spray!

 

Can we take a moment to clear the air? Bathroom odors can be legit stinky. Sometimes there’s no way around making your business somebody else’s business—until now.


Stop bathroom odors before they get embarrassing with our DIY bathroom spray. Whether you’re home alone, sharing a hotel room, or hosting a dinner party, spritz this toilet spray before you go to block those bowl-bouncing odors. 


DIY bathroom spray supplies

  • 4-ounce glass spray bottle
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerin
  • 3 teaspoons rubbing alcohol
  • Approximately 3 ounces distilled water
  • 1 teaspoon Thieves® Household Cleaner
  • 30-40 drops essential oils*

*We used Lavender and Eucalyptus Radiata, but feel free to mix and match your favorite scents. For more ideas, check out our list at the end of this post.


How to make DIY bathroom spray:

1. Combine essential oils and vegetable glycerin in a spray bottle.

2. Add rubbing alcohol and Thieves Household Cleaner; mix well.

3. Fill to the top with distilled water.

4. Shake well until thoroughly combined.


To use:

1. Shake well before using to make sure oils are fully incorporated.

2. Spray 3-6 times into the toilet bowl before you go.

3. Do your business and flush as usual.

 

Know before you go

  

You can bet your bottom dollar there’s science behind this smell stopper! The ingredients in our DIY toilet spray create a barrier on the surface of the water, so odors can’t break free. Vegetable glycerin and rubbing alcohol act as stabilizers to help the essential oils and water mix. Thieves Household Cleaner’s gentle surfactant—that’s fancy for “substance that reduces the surface tension of a liquid”—helps keep the toilet bowl clean and acts as a second line of defense against stray smells.  

Next time you answer nature’s call, prep the potty with our homemade version of the popular toilet spray. You’ll block bothersome bathroom odors faster than you can say, “Fresh as a daisy!” 


 

DIY bathroom spray essential oil combinations:



It’s true. Essential oils make the best air fresheners. That’s why we used them in our odor-bustin’ DIY toilet spray. The recipe also calls for Thieves Household Cleaner—a product with more DIY options than you have surfaces to clean!

Which oils will you use to keep your bathroom fresh?

Xiang Mao--this is Red Lemongrass, so it's a cousin of Lemongrass, which I already LOVE! This is another oil that my daughter scanned for. It's known to be a calming oil and to enhance mental clarity and relaxation. Can't wait to diffuse this one!

Thieves Roll-on--Thieves isn't new to me, but this roll-on is!! Can't wait to be able to oil on-the-go with it! Easy peasy #plantpower Even better is that I got it for FREE this month! #holla
