There are so many chemicals lurking in our personal care products that we use every single day, many of them multiple times in a day. Fortunately, Young Living has you covered!! Read on to find out about some of our great, non-chemical-laden products!

Young Living Massage Oils

Let me tell you a little story. One lovely Valentine’s Day, my husband came home with a little something unexpected. As he handed me a well-known bright pink lingerie bag, I found this bottle of pink goo. Yes, goo. It smelled like bubble gum and it was more the texture of Elmer’s glue than anything that resembled a massage oil.

Of course, he was all excited to massage my back… I looked at that bottle, looked at the price tag ($15) and let him know that none of that overpriced toxic stuff was going anywhere near my body. Yuck.

Am I alone? … (Cricket cricket)…

Hopefully not! I’m sure there are some of y’all out there who would be interested in a non-toxic, incredibly beneficial massage oil infused with your favorite essential oils!

Well, Young Living has SIX amazing massage oils! And they are incredible!

OrthoSport is my favorite! I’m not an athlete, but sometimes after a long day of caring for a family of five, I surely feel like I’ve run a marathon. OrthoSport is so soothing! I used it so much on my aching body following the delivery of my baby boy.

Ladies, there is a DragonTime massage oil… Young Living has made it so easy for us to have a massage oil that supports our bodies each month during that time.

There is a Relaxation massage oil, Cel-Lite massage oil (very popular), and OrthoEase massage oil!

And, yes, there is even a Sensation massage oil. I’ll just leave it right there.

If you want to make your own massage oil, order some of Young Living’s V6 oil and add your own blend of oils to use in a massage.

This would be a super surprising and thoroughly enjoyed stocking stuffer! A gift that keeps on giving!

The power of touch is so important… Adding essential oils brings it to a whole new level!

Shower Gel

So if you are like I am, you have ditched the traditional bar of soap and use shower gel. Honestly, I’m not sure my kids would even know what to do with a bar of soap if they were handed one! Anyway, most shower gels are filled with synthetic fragrances and lots of chemicals. Not only do Young Living’s shower gels smell amazing, they are free from all the yucky chemicals. Also, did you know that you can just buy a shower gel base and add your own essential oils? I personally love to smell like Stress Away! There are 6 shower gels to choose from: bath and shower gel base, Evening Peace, Dragon Time, Lavender, Morning Start, and Sensation.

Lotions

Young Living has four different lotions, including one specially formulated for kids. I have used the lavender lotion and the KidScents lotion, and I really like them both. The lavender lotion is very moisturizing and it doesn’t take much of it for your hands!
KidScents® Lotion moisturizes, softens, and protects children’s sensitive skin using herbal extracts and a unique mix of botanicals. It contains MSM to promote healthy skin, calming and soothing shea butter (with natural UV protection), aloe vera, antioxidant vitamins, wheat germ and almond oil, and uplifting therapeutic-grade essential oils. I’m so much happier using this on my precious kiddos’ skin than the chemical-laden junk marketed for babies that they give you even at the hospital.

Deodorant

Don’t use theirs, use ours! 🙂

AromaGuard Meadow Mist Deodorant and AromaGuard Mountain Mint Deodorant are the two deodorants available from Young Living. (Although, personally I prefer YL Thieves AromaBright toothpaste as a natural alternative for my pits.)

Hair care

Did you know Young Living has 4 different type shampoos you can choose from for your whole family? The best part is that they are non-toxic.

As we have mentioned multiple times, this is a journey. This was a hard switch for my budget. My family was using shampoo that cost us $.98 a bottle. The idea of spending something close to $20 kind of scared me. As I learned more about the chemicals in products, I did get the family switched to a better alternative (not the best) I found at stores for $8 a bottle. That was a start for us. I finally ordered myself some shampoo/conditioner with some ER points so I could try it. OH MY!!! Love the stuff. Remember natural doesn’t suds up as much (doesn’t have those chemicals) but it left my hair very clean. I actually am able to wash it less, which is much better for your hair. It doesn’t take a lot and so the bottles last much longer than I expected. I have now switched the whole family over. I love these products.

We have a great Kidscents Shampoo for the kids. KidScents® Shampoo has a safe, mild formula designed to provide the perfect pH balance for children’s delicate skin. It contains MSM, a natural sulfur compound known to strengthen hair, along with aloe vera, chamomile, and other nourishing herbs and vitamins.
