There are many essential oils that are wonderful for use with a healthy skin care routine. Frankincense and myrrh are two of my favorites. I often add a few drops of frankincense and myrrh to lotion to make it more rejuvenating for my skin.


I love adding essential oils to my skin care routine to really support healthy skin. When I have the occasional pimple I put frankincense on it. I am always amazed how quickly it works.


Try adding 10 drops of Young Living frankincense to the Sandalwood Moisture Cream for an awesome facial cream.


One of my favorite products for skin is Young Living’s Animal Scents Ointment. I use it all the time on my face, hands and anywhere else on my body I feel inclined. It leaves my skin soft and supple. It’s not just for animals. It also has myrrh and several other oils that are great for skin.

Young Living Lavender Oil It’s lavender harvest time at Young Living Essential Oils and we are celebrating with an awesome lavender promotion. Check out more details on that in the lower portion of this newsletter.

Lavender is often called the “Swiss Army Knife of Oils.” I need to be clear, I am talking about Lavandula angustifolia, sometimes called Lavandula officinalis.

Lavender is one of those oils that everyone should have on hand. If you have some issue that you wonder what oil to use, it’s a good bet lavender will be helpful.

Lavender is very soothing to the skin. It is wonderful added to aloe vera on those days when you are getting a little too much fun in the sun.

Make sure you are using true Lavandula angustifolia and not one that has been extended with a hybrid lavender like lavandin or a synthetic linalool and linalyl acetate. Many companies use things to extend the oil and thus make more profit. For example: Lavandin is commonly used to extend lavender. Lavandin is a hybrid that has 5-12% camphor as one of its constituents. Camphor is irritating to the skin.

Note: France is the number one producer of lavender oil. They export more than 100 times more lavender essential oil than they distill. Think about that. That means that there is a whole LOT of adulterated lavender oil being exported.

It is very important that you know where your lavender came from and that it is pure Lavandula angustifolia. I only use lavender oil from Young Living Essential Oils. I know how much attention to the highest quality pure oils they have. I have also visited Young Living Farms on many occasions, seen the lavender fields and the oils being distilled.

Lavender is one of the mildest oils and can be used for children and the elderly. It is one of the oils that can be used undiluted, that is, if you are using pure unadulterated lavender oil.

Lavender is very relaxing and is wonderful to wind down in the evening before bed time. I love to use lavender along with cedarwood at bed time. Layer a few drops of each, lavender and cedarwood essential oil, on the bottom of your
feet then inhale the oil from your hands cupped over your nose. You will love how relaxing it is.

Whenever I travel I use Young Living Lavender Vitality Essential Oil in chamomile tea before bed time. I make a cup of chamomile tea then add 2 or 3 drops lavender to the tea. Sometimes I take several drops of lavender in a capsule. I usually don’t sleep very well in hotel rooms. I guess I’m just used to my own bed. The tea helps me wind down and relax before bed time.

Diffuse lavender essential oil for a comforting and calming scent. Unwind by adding a few drops to a nighttime bath.
Diffuse for a fresh, clean scent and to eliminate odors. Lavender oil may complement some of your favorite shampoos, lotions, or skin care products. Just add a few drops for a wonderful lavender scent.
