There are countless ways to use essential oils. One of the ways is to use essential oils for relaxation and recharging. Applying them topically can bring a range of benefits, and when we need a boost, there’s no denying that one of our favorite ways to recharge is simply enjoying the aromatic benefits of Young Living’s essential oils and blends by taking a few deep breaths.

Essential Oils for relaxation_RC essential oil

R.C. essential oil blend

  • Stay motivated with  R.C.™ essential oil blend’s energetic aroma when you hit the weights, treadmill, or bike.
  • Get a post-workout spa treatment by adding a few drops to V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for a foot or back massage after your gym routine,  outdoor adventure, or yoga practice.
  • Brighten your outlook during early morning errands by applying R.C. to your chest and wrists.


Peppermint essential oil

  • Refresh yourself after a tough workout. Dilute a few drops of Peppermint into V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex and use it in a cooling post-workout massage.
  • Create calm and cool essential oil combinations. Peppermint is in the same family as both Lavender and Rosemary, which means these complementary botanicals are some of the best-smelling essential oils to use together.


Eucalyptus essential oilYoung Living Eucalyptus Radiata Essential Oil

  • Create a DIY essential oil diffuser in your shower! Place 5–10 drops of Eucalyptus Radiata oil on a warm, damp washcloth and place it in the shower just out of direct contact with the water before showering. It will create cooling, Eucalyptus-infused steam.
  • Enjoy an uplifting experience by inhaling Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil directly or rubbing it on your chest.


Rosemary essential oil

  • Find a moment of clarity. Rosemary essential oil’s complex, woodsy aroma is perfect when you need to take a moment to refocus. If you’re mixing essential oils, try putting it in an essential oil diffuser recipe that features citrus essential oils. The bright freshness of citrus will complement the herby aroma and bring energy to the diffuser blend.
  • Diffuse Rosemary essential oil to clear the air of unwanted odors. Try it in your kitchen for a fresh scent!
