Essential oils are a complementary tool that can help you achieve a healthy lifestyle. They are easy to use, versatile, and smell great.
All oils are not created equal. Young Living is the only brand I personally trust because I know they have complete control over their product from seed to seal. Oils sold at health food stores can be misleading. They are not regulated by the FDA, so you must look closely at the labels. The labels may say they are 100% therapeutic-grade oils when they are not. If the ingredients list anything other than the plant stated, or if the label has statements like “For external use only,” “For aromatic use only,” and/or “Dilute properly,” the oil inside that bottle may have been cut with other oils, synthetics, or chemicals.
Peace & Calming
Peace & Calming® is a gentle, sweet blend of Blue Tansy, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Ylang Ylang and is one of Young Living’s most popular essential oil blends. With a calming, sweet aroma, this blend is one you’ll love using during your children’s bedtime and for yourself after the house has settled down.
This fragrant oil blend is a wonderful addition to your meditation, evening routine, or playtime with the kids. With a comforting, fresh aroma, Peace & Calming has become a popular oil for everything from enhancing the environment in your home to applying as a personal fragrance for any occasion.
- Apply Peace & Calming to the bottoms of your feet at night as part of a bedtime ritual for your whole family.
- Dilute the essential oil with V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex for a calming back massage before naps or bed.
- Add 4–5 drops to 1 cup of Epsom salt for a centering bath at the start of the day or as part of a calming evening routine.
- Add the oil to Young Living Bath & Shower Gel Base for a cleanser your entire family will love.
