Seize the Day with Gary’s Great Day Protocol

3 12/05/2020 - Mindfulness, WELLNESS, YL Lifestyle, YOUNG LIVING

Have you ever woken up feeling unstoppable and ready to seize the day? Perhaps you know someone who radiates this energy and confidence at the crack of dawn. Whether you’re a morning person or not, there’s no denying that the first moments set the mood for the rest of the day.

Incorporating essential oils into your morning routine can amplify your intentions and enhance your feelings of confidence so you can start your day from a place of strength. Layering and blending specific oils in distinct ways can help cultivate the right mindset to manifest your goals.

That’s why Young Living founder, D. Gary Young, put together an empowering essential oil routine, Gary’s Great Day Protocol. Known for his vision and belief in pursuing that vision despite obstacles, there was never a goal too large or impossible for Gary to achieve. The four elevating oils in Gary’s Great Day Protocol embrace this sentiment, and when used together are a powerful way to start each day with intention and empowerment (not to mention, you’ll smell amazing).

Through daily rituals and time spent nurturing the inner self, this cultivates the resilience and optimism we need to achieve our biggest dreams and seize the day!


Step 1: Valor

Place 1 drop of Valor on the inside of your left wrist. Place left wrist over the inside of your right wrist so that the insides of both wrists are touching and hold together for a moment. Focus your mind on balancing, holding your wrists in place. The powerful combination of ingredients in Valor delivers strengthening and refreshing qualities, supporting feelings of courage and self-esteem.

Step 2: Highest Potential

Place 1 drop of Highest Potential above your belly button to promote positive feelings, calming down your mind.

Harnessing the uplifting and inspiring power of Blue Cypress and other pure essential oil scents, this blend helps you access and nurture the most profound version of your inner self.

Step 3: Joy

Place 1 drop of Joy above your heart to bring about feelings of happiness to your mind and body. Create a joyful and happy aromatic experience with this uplifting blend of pure essential oils such as Rose, Jasmine, Tangerine, Bergamot and others.

Step 4: White Angelica

Place 1 drop of White Angelica in your palms and rub together. Lightly brush hands over your head, face, shoulders and body to uplift your spirits and protect your energies. Lovingly harvested from plants native to exotic destinations around the world, the 10 essential oils in White Angelica come together to create a one-of-a-kind blend that inspires a positive atmosphere and feelings of security and optimism.

Obstacles and challenges are inevitable as you go after your dreams, but it’s important to remember that you have the power to make huge changes in your life. And those changes all begin with establishing an uplifting morning routine to start each day with positivity!

*Note: Gary’s Great Day Protocol can be adapted as needed, based on your personal needs.

    Hi, just a question as I m interested to purchase highest potential this month. In this blog it mentioned to apply highest potential above belly button but in the product website it mentioned “How to Use –
    Topical: It is not recommended for this essential oil to be applied topically.”

      Hi Doreen, our Highest Potential oil can also be used topically. Before applying it onto larger areas, we would advise to do a patch test by putting a drop of it onto your wrist together with a carrier oil. 🙂

    I got these oils this month and followed the protocol outlined and WOW …love it!
    However I am very curious why you have included Highest Potential instead of Harmony which is in Gary‘s original protocol. I would have much preferred to get Harmony.

      Hi Mandy, all the oils included in the Gary’s Great Protocol Kit are uplifting scents that work well together. The global marketing team created that kit and we can understand that Harmony would also fit well with the kit, but we sadly we don’t have any further information about it.
