Best Essential Oils for Sleep

We have the best essential oils for sleep. This is one of my favorite natural remedies.

Why are they so effective?

They address root causes instead of being bandaids. It’s quite magical.

The best essential oils for sleep for babies and adults and some of the best practices for using oils for your wellness.

Anxiety + Depression

Oils like Lavender, Frankincense, Lemon, and Valor all in the Premium Starter Kit help us with anxiety, a common root cause of sleep issues.

Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Valor, Citrus Fresh help us with depression, as it’s another reason we find ourselves struggling to sleep.

If you’re thinking you’ll just run to the store and pick up some oils, here’s why that’s a super dangerous decision.

Stress

I don’t know about you, but if I’m stressed, my mind is racing.

That leads to my eyes wide open for hours.

So, I like to add oils to my Essential Rewards orders that can help with stress for many reasons, including sleep.

Some of my go-to essential oils for stress are Stress Away (Premium Kit), Tranquil, Release, and RutaVaLa.

Here’s a list of healthy ways to promote sleep through relieving stress:

For Children

Our kids have been so blessed with the best essential oils for sleep.

It’s become such a part of our routine, they know exactly where to grab what they need and how to apply it.

Here are some of our favorite sleep tips for children:

  1. A toxin-free home, good nutrition, and a routine bedtime are all key to good sleep. 
  2. SleepyIze from the KidScents Line is great to do a light nighttime massage. 
  3. A couple drops of Peace & Calming on a favorite stuffed animal they snuggle with at night, so they can breathe in the goodness as they unwind during storytime. 
  4. A drop or two of Lavender and Stress Away in a warm bath before bed is a great way to start calming down before bedtime.
  5. Massaging your oil of choice like Tranquil on the soles of their feet will help them fall asleep as well. 
  6. Dream Catcher Blend: Helps to open the mind, enhancing dreams. Helps children sleep more soundly.

5 Ways Young Living is a Less Expensive Lifestyle No ratings yet.

5 Ways Young Living is a Less Expensive Lifestyle

There are 5 amazing ways that Young Living is a far less expensive lifestyle than the one you’ve been passed down from generations before.

These are five ways Young Living is a less expensive lifestyle than the toxic life the stores and other "safe" products offer.

1. Concentrated

First and foremost, it’s important that you understand the huge difference between YL and any other oil/lifestyle company. Read more about that here.

Now that you know why it can only be Young Living, here’s how it also benefits your wallet.

Most every single product is highly concentrated.

Just take a look at some comparisons:

These are five ways Young Living is a less expensive lifestyle than the toxic life the stores and other "safe" products offer.

2. No More Over-the-Counters

The toxicity of the fake, wannabe OTCs not only cost a ton more than Young Living.

They don’t even hold a candle to YL’s strength and effectiveness!

Comparison shop here:

These are five ways Young Living is a less expensive lifestyle than the toxic life the stores and other "safe" products offer.

3. Ditching Co-Pays + Prescriptions

Once we snagged our Essential Oils Reference Guide Desk Reference and applied its knowledge to our toxin-free life, things changed rapidly.

Where we had co-pays that were followed by prescriptions (costing even more while harming our bodies), we no longer need that route.

Are we thankful we can pop in and get a checkup? Sure!

Will we run into the hospital for a sling or cast if our kid breaks his arm? Obvioiusly.

But we’re no longer bound by the “must find out what my kid has” mentality.

We take care of things with our oily arsenal.

They’re gone faster.

They show up less.

We just feel…better.

How has this been the less expensive lifestyle all along?

Why didn’t someone tell us?

4. 25% Back + Free Shipping + Promos

This loyalty program of ours; she’s a keeper.

Can you imagine a rewards card at any store where you get $25 back on a $100 order?

Then at that $100 order getting free shipping?

And then knowing if you liked the group of free items that you could bump up your order to hit promo levels with things you need anyway?

Check out some basics on how our family saves so much on this less expensive lifestyle each year since we stopped going to the grocery and opted for the monthly Essential Rewards program with Young Living.

These are five ways Young Living is a less expensive lifestyle than the toxic life the stores and other "safe" products offer.

5. Referral Link

If you have a wholesale account with Young Living, you automatically get a referral link.

The same way I can refer someone to my apartment building and get cash or a discount on next month’s rent, I can give my link to someone wanting this lifestyle.

The only break in the link between the apartment analogy and YL is that with Young Living, I then get a kickback every time that person orders whereas I only benefit once from my apartment referral.

Read here how to get the most out of our referral program whether you’d like to earn casually or consistently.

By the Numbers

We added up how much we spent the first year we only bought Young Living.

Then we added how much we spent the year before with doc co-pays, running to the pharmacy, over-the-counters, and buying everything else we get from YL at the store.

How much did we save?

Over TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS.

It’s $2,000 less to live a life that won’t harm my organs, immune system, or hormones?

OKAY!

*I did not count in any of the money I made from sharing the referral link. Simply comparing orders from YL with life before it.*

Easy Home Detox

This easy home detox will rock your socks, friend!

Having a toxin-free home is so much easier and less expensive than I expected.

I can’t wait to teach you how to do it!

This super easy home detox will rock your socks, friend! We'll dig into each space in your home to rebuild a safe place for your family.

Detox Your Air

A typical home is 3-5 times more polluted than the most industrialized and populated cities.

Here’s why:

  • Air fresheners/candles/wax melts/plug ins/room sprays
  • Laundry detergent/softeners
  • Household Cleaners/disinfectants
  • Greenwashed products

We only use Young Living products for this reason, so I’ll be sharing ditch-n-switches with them throughout this post.

This super easy home detox will rock your socks, friend! We'll dig into each space in your home to rebuild a safe place for your family.

It’s Easy

The switches are simple!

The best thing about these products is that they’re concentrated.

300 drops of oil in a 15mL bottle. 16 bottles of laundry detergent in one. 29 cleaners in one!

You’ll save money and make your body stronger right away.

Every bottle you ditch for Young Living is a trade from harm to health.

What candle, detergent, or cleaner makes your lungs and immune system stronger?!

This super easy home detox will rock your socks, friend! We'll dig into each space in your home to rebuild a safe place for your family.

Clean Your Kitchen

The plates your food touches.

The counters and sinks and hands that need cleaned.

The oven and stove that need scrubbed.

Everything you’ve got now, even if it’s got an “eco friendly” label, is dangerous for your health.

Like your air clean up, your kitchen products dilute, too saving you lots!

The simple swaps:

This super easy home detox will rock your socks, friend! We'll dig into each space in your home to rebuild a safe place for your family.

Boldly Change Your Over-the-Counters

“An infectious disease specialist…Dr. Louis B. Rice, warned, ‘There are strains out there (bacteria), and they’re becoming more and more common, that are resistant to virtually every antibiotic we have.’ Antibiotics may crumble before these ‘germs on steroids,’ but essential oils do not. The multitude of chemical constituents that make up essential oils present bacteria with a puzzle that cannot be solved. The mosaic of hundreds of chemical constituents simply do not allow for bacterial resistance,” (LifeScience).

Ever wonder why that petroleum-based chest rub doesn’t actually fix your cough?

Or why your synthetic muscle rub doesn’t actually make your pain go away long-term?

I could go on forever, but the answer is: they’re not real.

They’re a fake.

A bandaid.

Young Living’s over-the-counters and natural remedies with their pesticide-free oils has created a home for us over the last 4 years that will never be the same.

This super easy home detox will rock your socks, friend! We'll dig into each space in your home to rebuild a safe place for your family.

Straighten Out Your Hormones

Ladies, hear this: common doesn’t always mean normal.

PMS is not normal.

Men, hear this: your hormones matter.

What are the most damaging items in your home?

Personal care products, makeup, cleaners, and fragrances.

We slather on over 300 chemicals when we’re getting ready for the day let alone all we use the rest of the day.

This super easy home detox will rock your socks, friend! We'll dig into each space in your home to rebuild a safe place for your family.

Here’s How to Make the Swap

Go here to make the switch.

It’s simple, you’ll have tons of support, and you will love how great you feel!

Our Journey with Essential Oils

Hey, friends!

I love it when you ask me about oils because there’s so much goodness to share.

And you’ll never believe what happened to make me a full-on oily mama!

Our journey with essential oils wasn't always easy, but finally figuring out this one simple standard changed everything.

My Rock Bottom Moment

There I was.

Passed out on the bathroom floor.

I was crazy sick.

My body was so weak I collapsed in a heap.

When I woke, I wasn’t sure how long I’d been out.

Nothing the doctor gave me was working.

Everything from the drug store failed me.

Steve said, “What about that box of oils? Didn’t you say they’re supposed to help with stuff like this?”

Oh yeah…those oils…

That day I learned how powerful Young Living oils are.

The DiGize and Thieves blends from my Premium Starter Kit was powerful.

It kicked my stomach flu fast.

I was hooked.

And I’ve never looked back.

Our journey with essential oils wasn't always easy, but finally figuring out this one simple standard changed everything.

What Are Essential Oils

Essential oils are volatile liquids, which sounds bad but is actually really good because… English.

They’re the smelly good parts of plants that are distilled or pressed out.

Essential oils work how the blood in our bodies works.

Sealing the cut, protecting the wound, providing nutrients and oxygen for cell regeneration, and guarding against harmful microorganisms.

We Love that Essential oils:

  • Boost immunity
  • Support our defenses
  • Strengthen immune, circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous, and other body systems.
  • Help maintain normal cellular regeneration
  • Elevate mood
  • We use them as antiseptics (topical use only)
  • Are chock full of antioxidants
  • Smell amazing
  • Pump oxygen goodness into our bloodstream
  • Boost stamina and energy
  • Help you relax
  • Manage stress and frustration
  • Do wonders for the aging process
  • Lift brain fog
  • Promote overall health, vitality, and longevity
  • Are great for focus and concentration
  • Encourage proper nasal function
  • Support the lungs and sinuses

The oils are just the beginning.

There are over 600 lifestyle toxin-free products that work better than anything we ever had in our cabinets before.

Even better?

Everything is concentrated, so it’s like buying bulk.

However, this is in smaller bottles and saves more than in store!

Our journey with essential oils wasn't always easy, but finally figuring out this one simple standard changed everything.

First Decision: Wholesale or Retail

We were so sick of putting bandaids on everything and were ready for a real change.

Because we didn’t want to be roped into anything where we were forced to sell or spend any certain amount, we made Young Living fit our lifestyle.

Retail means to buy at full price.

Wholesale gives you discounts and the ability to choose the monthly program to budget (which you can read about here).

Becoming a Wholesale Member

Wholesale makes the most sense if you’re looking for more than just an oil or a bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner.

You’ve got a few different kit options here:

Frequently Asked Questions

DOES SIGNING UP MAKE ME A “DISTRIBUTOR”?

Nope! You aren’t ever required to sell.

When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts if you choose to use it.

In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They’re buying from Young Living because of the quality.

WHAT ABOUT MINIMUM PURCHASES?

There are NO minimum monthly purchase requirements.

To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership.

But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases.

So that’s a great program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

WHY SHOULD I BUY FROM YOUNG LIVING INSTEAD OF OTHER ESSENTIAL OILS COMPANIES?

It does seem like a new essential oils company pops up every day, doesn’t it? 

I can’t speak to the quality of other companies, but I can say that Young Living was the only company in my research of essential oil companies that could answer all of my questions about purity in a way that was satisfactory to me.

Young Living was the only company that:

  • Has their own farms (in the regions where the plants should be grown)
  • Could guarantee that no pesticides or herbicides were used in the growing of any of their oils (they use essential oils for pest control and they do all of the weeding by hand). Organic is not pesticide or herbicide free. It’s a step down.
  • Has their own testing equipment (they do both in-house and 3rd party testing, and use many different testing methods not just GC/MS which only tests for certain chemicals, not whether those chemicals are synthetic or not)
  • Only uses the first distillation of oils instead of adding chemicals to get more out of the plant.

Young Living also was the only company that was directly in charge of essential oil farming operations.

Every other company I researched goes through some kind of an “oil broker” to buy their oils. Even if they’re “sustainably sourced,” that’s not something you want.

This post walks you through how to get Young Living oils, what their toxin-free lifestyle really looks like, and what your options are.

They have to trust that the oil broker is telling the truth, who has to trust that the essential oil distilleries are telling the truth, who have to trust that the farmers are telling the truth about what they say they are doing.

With Young Living, you just have to trust one company instead of several.

I felt the most comfortable trusting Young Living since they’re a full-disclosure company.

ANYONE can visit the farms, participate in the harvesting and distillation, view the Young Living labs, and see the entire process. That’s not an option with any other company!

HOW WILL I KNOW WHICH OILS TO USE FOR WHAT?

One of the benefits of getting a starter kit is that you also get to join our private Facebook group that’s specifically for questions about essential oils!

My weekly usage tips and recipes will text straight to you making life even simpler!

DOES YOUNG LIVING ONLY SELL ESSENTIAL OILS?

The answer to this one was surprising to me when I first got my starter kit!

Young Living uses their pesticide-free, synthetic-free, fragrance free, people over profit model to create over 600 lifestyle products.

Most all of these are concentrated, so it’s like buying bulk in small bottles saving you lots in the process.

Snuggle Up Diffuser Blend

It’s super chilly out there!

This blend would be amazing in your diffuser curled up with a good book.

Northern Lights Black Spruce is amazing for those winter blues. It’s been known to release emotional blocks and helping you support feelings of balance and grounding.

That makes this a special one to diffuse while you’re walking through difficult times.

Peppermint is fantastic for mental focus and for stimulating our brains, which we can use when the dreary days won’t seem to go away. There’s also a brightness to it that is super uplifting in our home on days like that.

Rosemary is fantastic for mental clarity and focus, too.

This is such a cozy yet clean blend that would be great for those work-from-home days.

It’s a time when all things are possible and lends itself to making joyful plans with what we’ll do with this trip around the sun.

In this blend, you’ll find a bright and joyful set of oils that will boost your health in the new year.

Ylang Ylang is amazing for fighting off anger, boosting self esteem, and filters out that negative energy that can hinder our plans for the new year.

Tangerine is one we use for happiness, calming, and helping with anxious feelings or nervousness.

Cedarwood is one we use for calming and purifying. A great one to use in the new year to knock out any old yucky feelings and usher in joy!

Lime strengthens the immune and respiratory systems. That’s super helpful in the new year since we’re always fighting off one bug or another during germ season.

Purification blend disinfects the air and neutralizes mildew, cigarette smoke, and any funky odors you’ve got going on in the house.

Spearmint is another oil that opens and releases emotional blocks and brings about a feeling of balance and lasting sense of well-being.

If this kinds of emotional support talk from essential oils is new to you, it would be helpful to look up what the oils do in your limbic system.

These diffuser blends are simple, pesticide and synthetic free, immune and respoiratory strengthening, and will brighten your mood and air.

Do You Have Pesticide and Synthetic Free Oils?

How do you know if they’re both?

Your oil company will have to prove that they don’t spray their plants with any chemicals.

They’ll also have to show you that they don’t add anything synthetic.

Gas chromatography doesn’t show this.

Labels certainly don’t show this.

You’ve got to ask the company yourself.

The only one I’ve been able to find is Young Living.

You can see your options and all Young Living offers here.

Click HERE for a simple walk through on how to buy the safest essential oils and start a toxin-free lifestyle with Young Living.

Why Young Living Only?

  • Zero pesticides
  • Single distillation
  • Soil hasn’t been touched by pesticides in 50+ years
  • You can go to any farm in the world to see for yourself
  • Zero synthetics
  • Zero fragrance
  • ONLY essential oil
  • BECAUSE YOU ARE READY TO TAKE BACK YOUR HEALTH!

5% Rule

There’s a rule that says companies only have to make sure 5% of the oil in their bottles is actual essential oil to be considered “pure and therapeutic.”

Organic oils can even have synthetics and fragrance added to them under this rule, and do.

Young Living oils are the ONLY oils who never adulterate* their oils and have 100% never changed essential oil.

*I consider spraying plants with any pesticide as adulterating the oil.

Why Care About Pesticides?

Anything you put on your skin is in your bloodstream in 26 seconds.

Choosing an essential oil company outside of Young Living ensures you’ll have those pesticides coursing through your veins as well.

Why spend your money on a temporary fix that makes a long-term problem?

Learn fast truths and how to get the safest oils on the planet.  Add value to your home and budget. Feel better. Live well.

What About Organic Pesticides?

When I say ZERO pesticides, I mean ZERO.

Not even organic pesticides.

Young Living is hand-weeded (or sheep-weeded in some cases like the France Lavender farm!) and this is their above-and-beyond calling they call Seed-to-Seal.

Are They Expensive?

The amazing part about Young Living is the concentration of the oils and over 600+ lifestyle products.

For example, the household cleaner makes 29 spray bottles.

One 15mL bottle of oil has around 300 drops in it.

When you buy a Young Living lifestyle item, you’re adding immense value to your home and saving a ton!

Learn fast truths and how to get the safest oils on the planet.  Add value to your home and budget. Feel better. Live well.

How Do I Know Which Oils I Need?

Most people start with the Premium Starter Kit. It comes with 12 oils, a diffuser, and some samples of other lifestyle products at around half the cost as a bundle/kit.

These 12 oils are called our “Everyday Oils,” and the kit itself comes with a 24% discount on all products for life.

From there, the iTovi scanner {click HERE} and Essential Oils Reference Guide {click HERE) are two must-haves for taking on your new life of proactive living.

How Often Do I Have to Order?

That’s up to you.

Our family can’t possibly pass up the thousands of dollars we save every year with the loyalty program called Essential Rewards (read about it HERE).

You can order once in your whole life and never again, you can order with Essential Rewards, or anywhere in-between.

Do I Have to Sell this Stuff?

Nope.

I personally tell everyone I know (including you!) because it feels like a deep down serious moral obligation to let people know there’s a safe way to live with all the disease in this world. You can be a part of one of the greatest changes in someone’s life, and that’s big.

You decide how and when you share, AND if you do, Young Living will send you a thank you check. No strings. No immediate business you’re roped into. Simply a, “Hey, you helped save a family. Thanks!” bonus check!

Why the LSP Essential Oils Reference Guide? No ratings yet.

Learn why the Life Science Publishing Essential Oils Reference Guide is the only guide you'll want for your Young Living essential oils.

Why the LSP Reference Guide?

Ever find yourself wishing you had a reference guide to oils?

Something to tell you what you should use when?

A reference for how to use certain oils?

A place to learn about Young Livings 600+ oil-infused products?

The Life Science Essential Oils Reference is the answer.

Option 1: Pocket Reference Guide

The Pocket Reference is basically a smaller version of the Desk Reference guide.

It has the same sections on singles and blends like the Desk Reference and also has a section to look up specific products for support.

It is not as thorough as the Desk Reference, but is smaller in size and great for travel.

Option 2: Desk Reference Guide

The Desk Reference is bigger and about double the price, but loaded with a ton of information!

It teaches more in-depth studies on everything from the start of Young Living to specific bodily support.

The index is ultra-valuable, especially for new oilers.

No matter what the situation, oilers know this guide will help in any situation.

It is particularly helpful in conjunction with the iTovi and Zyto Scanners for those digging down into root causes.

Why Life Science Reference Guides?

Choosing a Young Living-approved text ensures best practice.

Synthetic and adulterated oils cannot compare to Young Living oils the same as other guides cannot compare to Life Science.

Knowing the research comes from a Young Living approved source lets readers rest easy.

Heartburn + Oils No ratings yet.

Simple Relief

Heartburn.

That icky feeling that makes it hard to concentrate or even sleep.

Thankfully, there are different kinds of natural relief options for you if you’d like to avoid the pain that comes with heartburn without side effects.

Top 3 Single Oils for Heartburn Support

Basil, Fennel, and Spearmint are great options to toss in a vegetable capsule and take for support.

I also find great help in rubbing two drops Lemon and one drop Peppermint directly on my chest undiluted. It provides such quick relief.

Top 3 Blends

Digize, JuvaCleanse, and Citrus Fresh could also be put in veggie capsules for support.

Surprised to find Citrus Fresh in this list, or anything citrus for that matter?

Like all citrus oils from Young Living, they are cold-pressed from the rind, which isn’t acidic.

Top 3 Nutritional Options

The ever-wonderful AlkaLime, Allerzyme, and Essentialzymes-4 are all helpful for heartburn, especially if we want to get to the root of the problem instead of chasing down symptoms all the time.

Surprising Heartburn Help

The Essential Oils Reference Guide says to mix the juice of 1/2 a lemon in eight ounces of water right when you wake up.

Apparently it tells the stomach to stop making digestive acids, relieving heartburn.
