  • Jeannine Keith

    Can you use EO’s from young living I your food or drinks? I read somewhere that this can be done with some EO’s. I am new to EO’s and don’t want to harm myself in anyway by using them.

    • Hi Jeannine, Our Vitality line oils are labeled for use as a dietary supplement and are great for adding to your cooking or beverages. We hope this helps and thanks for stopping by!

  • nativetexangirl

    Or Kim you can put your cotton ball in a small metal tin available at craft stores or after you use one. (Like the Thieves mints come in.) I have done this & works well.

  • Leah

    How many drops on in the 5ml bottles?

    • Young Living

      Hello Leah, There are approximately 85 drops (1 teaspoon) in a 5-ml bottle. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Laurie

    What oil do you use to freshen your laundry? Do you add it right into the washing machine?

    • Young Living

      Hi Laurie, Any essential oil that you enjoy the smell of would be a great additive. Please visit the Thieves® Laundry Soap blog for a little more information.

  • Sonia K

    I love the toilet paper idea!!! With a full house that one is brilliant!

  • Jean Czernik

    Love the idea of using favorite oil and putting it in car vent and in vacuum bag for house. Thanks.

  • Kathy Cicora

    add the empty bottles to a string of lights. Wire the bottles over the light bulbs and the labels light up all the different colors. They also diffuse the scent out of the bottles.

  • Debbie

    Put a drop on a cotton ball and drop it in your husband’s boots to freshen.

  • My husband and I just completed our process of going chemical free. The last to go I almost forgot about. It was the fabric refresher that my husband has to have for his shirts each morning. I made a fabric spray with distilled water, lavender essential oil and some witch hazel. He didn’t know the difference!

  • Sarah J Simpson

    Peppermint in my bathroom, in the bowl water, on the TP paper cardboard rolls….never without it!

  • Lynne Brown

    I need some ideas for a good room spray for my office!

    • Try in a 2 oz spray bottle, a pinch of epsom salts, 6 drops clary sage, 7 drops grapefruit, 4 drops geranium fill with distilled water.

    • Stephanie Korish

      I love AromaEase as a spray air freshener!

  • ji lin

    Hello, how many drops YLEO need to make a 1 kg handmade soap? Thank u…

    • Young Living

      Hi Ji Lin, We recommend following the directions as listed on the label for usage instructions. Thanks for stopping by with your question!

  • Karen Smith

    Using it on a vacuum cleaner bag makes the house smell wonderful.

  • Nikki Kopmann

    Can you post a specific recipe for bath fizzes and body scrub? Thanks!

  • Jill

    You people are crazy to ingestion and use topically without dilution

    • Lisa

      You obviously don’t know pure essential oils. Not all our oils are for ingestion but we have dietary lables approved by the FDA for ingesting.

    • Lisa LaMunyon

      Jill you obviously don’t know we have dietary labels for our oils that are made for ingesting because they are pure! FDA has approved our labeling!

    • Pam

      Jill I am so happy you wrote that, I feel most people do not know how to use essential oil safely.

  • Laurie

    Is there a quick reference guide/list of which oils are available in the 15ml size?

    • Young Living

      Hi Laurie, At this time, we do not have a comprehensive list of the oils available in the 15ml bottle. However each of our oils are listed in the Product Guide and online with the sizes available. Thanks for stopping by!

    • Chantalle

      That’s why they have a vitally.. for ppl like you 😉

  • Kim Olin

    3 drops of peppermint on a cotton ball in a tiny zip lock type baggie (found at crafting stores), close. When having nausea and vomiting, open baggie & sniff several times.

    • Except you would not want to use plastic with ego’s. Get a diffuse necklace…there are many different types on the market.

  • Maru

    How many drops in a 5ml?

    • Young Living

      Hi Maru, Great question! There are approximately 85 drops (1 teaspoon) in a 5 ml bottle.

  • Denise Mychele Hutchinson

    I make the best Swedish Meatballs ever now that I have YLEO! And I share the empty bottles with Blends for Friends in need with the roller attachment.

    • Robin Colyer

      What oils do you use for them? Would you post your recipe please?

  • Carmen Ayala

    Easy as 1, 2, 3,
    One drop on my DIY necklace diffuser
    Two drops on my DIY car diffuser
    Three drops on my personal carry diffuser

  • Stephanie Hammel

    I play Roller Derby and my gear bag can get a little smelly, so I use a few drops of Purification and Joy on cotton balls in a mesh bag inside the gear bag and it keeps it a little more fresh.

  • Great post. Like you said there are so many uses for essential oils and lots of things to do with just one bottle. However the amount of oil used also depends greatly on the the type of diffuser it’s being used in.

  • Cheryl

    One drop of any Vitality EO with my toothpaste every morning and night. Very refreshing!

  • I add 1-2 drops of Grapefruit and 1-2 drops of Tea Tree oil to my facial lotion/moisturizer! Thank you Y.L.

  • Bethany

    My favorite snack right now is Plain Greek Yogurt with added vanilla stevia drop and a few lemon vitality essential oil drops! It tastes like a lemon mousse but much better for you!

  • Georgia piekart

    I put 3 drops of peppermint in distilled water and make an awesome room freshener spray

    • Ava Marie

      Hi Georgia, I also put 2-4 drops of peppermint, lavender or purification oil on cotton balls or flat cotton pads and put them in my air vent to make my car smell good, the past owner was a smoker and this is so refreshing and keeps me awake on long drives. Take Care.

  • Jayne

    I add 2 drops of vitality oils to my homemade tarter sauce when having fish.

  • Sue Bon3

    Three drops of a vitality essential oil to a bottle of water! Always a refreshing drink anytime of the day. I’m not a water drinker, but with the lemon vitality, I drink twice as much water. So refreshing.

  • Angelic Sexton

    Love these ideas! Thank you 🙂

    • Sandy Miller

      Me too Angelic! Thanks to everyone expressing their experience with EO.

  • Put 3 drops on a cotton ball and leave in sneakers overnight. Put a few drops on the inside of a toilet paper roll. Close tissues in an airtight container with a cotton ball and 3 drops of essential oils. So many uses!

    • marji groth

      I never thought of either of these ideas! Thank you!

    • Janina

      Love it! I have put a couple drops for the smelly shoe, didn’t think about the toilet paper roll! Thanks for that one!

    • Michelle Brenmark

      Awesome tips Jodi! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  • Kat

    I added a few drops of lemon vitality EO to my home made drinks! Delightful!

  • Lisa hansen

    Love the oils.
