Let’s face it, whether winter is your favourite time of year and you’re a fan of the cooler climes, or you’re a sun worshipper desperate for the summer season, we can all agree that these chilly months sometimes take a toll on our bodies, leaving us looking for opportunities to boost our overall wellness. If you’re a lover of Young Living Essential Oils, why not try incorporating your favourite blends and oil-infused products into your daily routine this winter, providing pampering experiences using naturally derived and high-quality ingredients.

Neck and Chest Massage

If you’re feeling a little worn out, massages offer a sense of indulgence that’s more than welcome all year round. During the winter months when our immune systems may be feeling a little more tested, adding neck and chest massages to our daily routines can be incredibly relaxing! Opt for oils such as Cedarwood, Frankincense and Peppermint and simply dilute with a carrier oil of your choice before massaging directly on to your chest or across your throat. For best results, use downward strokes from the base of your ears and down your neck.

Steam Inhalation

Steam inhalation is great during winter months as the steam helps moisturise and soothe your body, and when combined with specific essential oils, can help bring a temporary feeling of relief. To enhance your morning shower and leave you feeling ready for the day ahead, we suggest using our Easy Breeze Awakening Shower Steamers, which offer an invigorating aroma that you’re bound to love. Alternatively, if you’re looking to enjoy the benefits of steam inhalation but want to conserve more water, try combining 4-12 drops of Lemon, Lime, Marjoram and Lavender essential oils in a bowl with hot water, before inhaling the steam for equal benefits.

Calming Bath

During winter months, there are few things that are as pampering and relaxing as a soothing bath. Not only does the steam work wonders for your overall wellness, but the warm water, particularly when Epsom salts and essential oils are added, can be fantastic for your skin, which may be more prone to dryness due to the colder weather. Whether you choose to use herbaceous oils like Thyme, prefer floral scents such as Ylang Ylang or opt for woody fragrances like Sacred Sandalwood, infusing your bathwater with essential oils is guaranteed to leave you feeling blissful.

Hot Liquids

Take advantage of the natural soothing effects of heat if you’re feeling under the weather this winter with the help of our delicious Plus oils. Warm liquids can easily become a relaxing part of your bedtime routine, so next time you choose to have a nighttime cup of tea, why not add a drop of our Lemon+ or Peppermint+ essential oil to the cup, for a flavour sensation that’s sure to soothe and set you up for a good night of rest.
