Always diffuse in my office depending on the staff temperament. They are drawn to my office and happier when they leave.
Love these suggestions! I agree with other posters that I would also include citrus vitality oils for my water. Also, I can’t be without my YL Joy Essential Oil.
Love this post! Thank you so much for the great ideas. I’ll definitely be using these in my daily recruiting tasks here in my cubicle at Young Living-Corporate 🙂
I cannot thank you enough for the post.Really looking forward to reading more. Want more.
I add Lavender, Deep Relief roll on, and Stress Away to many of the things listed in the office kit above. I teach high school science so no desk job for me. 🙂
Would be great if you sold these as kits instead of me writing them all down and hunting them out 😉
We love the idea, too 🙂
Cheryl, what exactly did you put on the bruise to help? I’m new and need to know all I can!!! Thanks!!
This list is awesome. I am starting a new job next week and have been putting together my office Servival kit. I Would love to get a USB diffuser. I am in Australia and don’t know if they are here yet. This is awesome! Thank you!!!
Marianne did you find someone to help you?
I have a diffuser at my desk and everyone loves it and asks me every day what oil I am going to use.
I am new to YL. I love the oils that I’ve used so far. I take them with me to work, but my supervisor told me that I could not bring them to work. Another coworker complained that the oil scent (PanAway)was too strong. But she uses PanAway YL oil herself. That did not stop me from using the oils.
I use all the above plus many others! Have to have the Thieves Hand Sanitizer on hand at work and in my purse! I have had several coworkers sign up because I have my diffuser going in my office every day! Great sales tool!
I pursed thrives oil from a salerand I’m not a member but I have used thrives oil all thurgh this season I spray it and defuse it in my home and apply it to my feet at night and I do like it so far I also just made a lotion bar and put it in it so when I’m out and about .I’m just not sure if I want to go any further with the oils yet my dad made all of our me dines when growing up I don’t think u should use them as much as some people is doing .thanks
I love these suggestions! Mine look a little different since I don’t have an office job, I take care of 6 wild, fun, amazing children outside of my home as my “day” job, but Young Living is my career.
I just a fair amount of Peace & Calming (nap time!), and Thieves as one might imagine. Loads of citrus in my water, Peppermint too, and my favourite for at work – Deep Relief! Kids are incredibly joyful (see loud).
Love this post.
Just wondering if there are any oils that help with hair growth?
I heard that Cedarwood helps with hair growth. Either do a 1:1 dilution and put a few drops where you need it or add a few drops to your shampoo.
I loved spraying thieves in my cube.
I always have peppermint, valor, peace and calming, theives lozenges, orange,aroma life, cypress and lavender. I am not allowed to diff
use them but I do share these with my coworkers when I see them having a bad day.
I diffuse peppermint. Peppermint and lemon in my water. Thieves in my tea. Stress away throughout the day and always have a lip balm sitting on my desk.
Stress Away helps my mind focus and sort out the things I need to accomplish in a balanced manner. Diffusing Motivation and Abundance together gives helps me to be more productive. Drinking Cinnamon in my water tastes so good I remember to drink more.
Me gustaría consumir y distribuir sus productos. Gracias saludos
I bring Thieves for my USB Orb Diffuser. I bring Stress Away, Awaken and Joy to help me tackle the workday. Normally I have Peppermint with me also but my husband took it with him today.
I am a SAHM, so, I usually have all my oils available to me. When we are out and about I always have lavender, thieves, valor and maybe a few others depending on the day and activity!!
I use YL oils at work during massage treatments and facials and I still bring some, like lozeges, pure protein.Love them all.
Today was my first day of a new job. This is perfect timing. Thx.
Diffuse peppermint, add lemon, lime or citrus fresh to my drinking water, roll on Stress Away. I also wear Christmas Spirit in a diffuser necklace.
I have a diffuser I use sometimes. I use Thieves during cold season, Drink Lemon in my water, use Peppermint in my tea, put on valor when working on a major project.
