Support Your Health this Winter with Essential Oils

27 March 3, 2014 - Archive

Winter can be a difficult season on your physical and emotional health. The days are shorter, it is cold in most parts of the country, and colds and the flu are more prevalent.

During any season there are a few basics that can help to maintain optimal physical and mental health, such as eating healthful foods, drinking lots of water, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. However, you may be doing everything “right” and still need a little extra support to get you through those short winter days and long winter nights. Whether diffusing, applying topically, or taking internally, Young Living essential oils can help you strengthen your physical wellness, improve your emotional balance, and fill your home with safe, purifying products.

Here are some ways you can incorporate Young Living essential oils and essential oil-infused products into your daily routine to support your health all winter long:

Utilize the Power of Thieves:

  • To help control the spread of germs, wash your hands frequently and incorporate the health-supporting power of any ofYoung Living Essential Oils Thieves Line our Thieves® products.
  • Diffuse Thieves essential oil blend day or night to help purify and humidify the air.
  • Clean household surfaces with Thieves Wipes or Thieves Household Cleaner.
  • If you’re on the go, help sanitize the air with a squirt or two of Thieves Spray.
  • Keep Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier in your car, at your desk, and in your purse or bag for a quick and easy cleansing shot. I frequently use a napkin and a small drop to clean my desktop.

    When I go on mission trips, I always add one-two drop(s) of Oregano Vitality to a bottle of water once or twice a day, and just refill my bottle as much as I need to. 🙂

    A good-read indeed. I need to research about the best practices while diffusing the aroma oils at home, is it a healthy practice to diffuse for continuous 24 hours on a daily basis, as I need a consistent pleasant feel around me, shall I do it?

    Can you use both Valor and Peace & Calming essential oils in diffuser at same time?

    • Young Living November 12, 2015 - 9:42 am Reply

      Hi Barb, Thanks for your question. Yes, since Valor and Peace & Calming are both aromatic/topical essential oils, you can create your own diffusion blend with those oils if you would like.
