Wow!! When I say that Young Living has you covered for FUN IN THE SUN, that’s an understatement! You will not believe how well they have us covered for all your July needs! Just look at all of those amazing products! Let’s cover how we use them and why you need all of them shall we!?
Grapefruit Lip Balm
100PV on Essential Rewards
I’m so excited we get lip balm for free this month!!
Trust me when I say you’re going to LOVE it!!
So tell me, are you or someone you know addicted to the store bought brands?
No judgements here, my son was VERY addicted. I couldn’t buy it fast enough for him.
Once I learned what was in those drugstore brands I was determined he was going to change to YL lip balm. You see those other brands contain petrochemicals (petrolatum, petroleum jelly etc.) this ingredient is rather tricky. It creates a barrier and doesn’t allow moisture into the skin. Over time this ingredient trains our body NOT to create its own moisture, so you become “addicted” to moisturizing products.
It took some time but he now loves YL lip balm and doesn’t use nearly as much as he did before.
YL Grapefruit Lip Balm is infused with Grapefruit EO, wolfberry seed oil and antioxidants that seal in moisture to prevent dehydration for smooth lips.
Who else here is already loving YL lip balm?
Do you have a favorite flavor?
Lavaderm Cooling Mist
190 PV on ER
If you live any where in the world that the sun shines bright enough for your skin to turn pink you NEED this one in your oily arsenal!!
This Cooling Mist can be applied every 10-15 minutes as needed to keep the skin cool.
We like to apply it then chase it with a couple drops of Idaho Balsam Fir. Its worked miracles on my hubby! <3
15ml of Peppermint
Peppermint is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs. It can be used for so many different things I’m just going to touch on a few.
Soothing for Muscles
Freshens Your Breath
Do you have trouble staying awake while driving? . Grab your peppermint, then slowly inhale from the bottle or put a few drops on a cotton ball and stick in your air vent. Now you’re wide awake and able to cruise on down the road.
What’s your favorite way to use peppermint?

Lavender Vitality essential oil, Lemon Vitality essential oil AND YL branded mason jar!
All at the 300PV on Quick Order or Essential Rewards
Lavender essential oil is one that ALL of us know and love! But did you know that we owe René-Maurice Gattefossé for starting the investigation into this amazing oil? In 1910 he plunged his hand into a vat of lavender oil after suffering a severe burn. He was amazed at how quickly, and with minimal scarring, the burn healed. He shared his experience which lead to lavender becoming everyone’s essential oil for burns.
It’s summer time and I’ll promise you, we use this oil ALL the time for minor burns and scrapes!! Here are a few of my summer recipes that I think you would love!! Including the amazing Lavender Lemonade that SO many of us love!! If you’ve ever been to the Mona Farm in Utah, you know this is served at all of the luncheons and it’s amazing!!

Which recipe are YOU going to try first?!
Seriously this little bottle can do so many things. It can be so refreshing in your water and help your body in it’s natural detoxification process. If i don’t drink this in my water daily I can tell a difference.
I have added a couple of drops to apples to keep them from browning.
I use this to flavor food too!! I add it to Chicken Breasts and Salmon because I don’t always have lemons
My 10 year old has even added it to her “famous” Scampi Chicken that she loves to make.
I have to add one of my favorite topical uses for this oil because it just might save a mama out there from loosing her mind.
IT GETS SLIME OUT OF ANYTHING! Including hair…

400 PV level on ER or quick order
Y’all this is one of very favorite oils!! It consists of Black Spruce, Camphor, Blue Tansy, Frankincense, and Geranium.
And it feels A-MA-ZING on my back!! Turns out it is the same frequency as our bones!!
Historically it was applied to the Roman Solider Officers and diffused to all the soldiers before going to battle. Not only is it the same frequency as our bones but it can also make us BRAVE!!
When Gary learned of this he searched hi and low until he found the “recipe.” Granted this was no step by step recipe, and actually cause him a good bit of frustration as he would get tot adding the last oil and the frequency would drop. Again and again and again… but as we all know of Gary Young, this didn’t stop him from messing forward. Eventually he perfected it into what we now know as VALOR!
How I use Valor: I roll it up my spine before applying any other oils. This of it this way: look at your spine as if it were the trunk and larger limbs of a tree. Once that is supported any other oils you apply will be able to flow out to the smaller branches and leaves more freely.
I also use 3 drop of Valor along with 3 drop of White Angelic as my “Brave Angel” roller. Lets just say I’m not to comfortable in big crowds but this sweet little mix helps me through.
How do you use Valor?
We LOVE getting free oils every month! Its just one of the amazing perks of being a Young Living member. If you aren’t a member yet we would love to have you join us! Go here to find out how.
