The snow is melting away, trees and flowers are blossoming, and the temperatures are steadily warming up… We all love the feeling of springtime in the air, but who loves the pollen and pressure to Marie Kondo their entire life? Not us!
Take some of the pressure off and start your spring cleaning ritual by simply adding some new essential oils into your routine.
Diffusing is a super quick and easy way to make your house smell brand new, boost your mood and immunity, and make guests think you spent a lot more time cleaning than you actually did. *yeah, we see you stuffing your clutter into the guest room closet 10 minutes before company arrives.
Knowing the right oils to use can keep our sneezing fits at bay, make us happy and stress free, as well as clear our skin and help us lose a little of the holiday weight.
Read on to see our favorite springtime essential oils!
A personal favorite of ours, Lemon is soooo versatile, yummy smelling, and useful. It should be nicknamed the Spring Cleaning Oil! Some uses and benefits include flavor enhancing, residue remover, wood polish, laundry freshener, skin cleanser, odor eliminator, mood enhancing, stainless steel polisher, nausea relieving, degreaser, digestive aid, improves memory, and so so much more. Get your Lemon oil obsession started with one of these spring diffuser blends:
3 drops lemon, 4 drops Joy* a Young Living proprietary blend
Lavender. Ah, Lavender. The King (or Queen?) of all essential oils. The benefits and uses of this oil are nearly endless, but some of our favorites include: aiding in concentration, relaxing to the mind and muscles, relieves cramps, and most importantly for this time of year – helps soothe seasonal allergy issues! Combine with Peppermint and Lemon for a powerhouse blend that will kick pollen’s butt. Perfect for diffusing or applying directly to your sinuses, temples, and the back of your neck.
Great for springtime because of its seasonal-allergy-fighting properties, but definitely one you want to keep on hand year round. As entrepreneurs, we despise being under the weather, and this minty blend can help keep us on our game! Rub directly on your belly for digestive trouble, on your temples and the back of your neck for mild headaches from staring at your screen too long, add to tea/coffee/water/or any other beverage for an immunity and digestive boost, or simply crack open the lid and sniff directly from the bottle to be more alert on early morning calls. It’s beautiful diffused on its own or with Lavender and Lemon for days you’re sneezing more than usual!
Alright, do we really need an explanation of this proprietary oil blend from Young Living? I mean, the name says it all. It’s been a user favorite since its inception, and a quick look at the oils that make up the blend show us why. Lime, Ocotea, Cedarwood, Lavender, Copaiba, and Vanilla… I’m melting just typing this! This delicious blend helps you to focus on the present, balances blood pressure, and calms the mind & body. It’s light and sweet scent pairs perfectly with spring. Or any other time of year when you’re craving mild spring temperatures and cherry blossoms. Or when you want a mini vacation in your office. Or just because you love yourself. 😉
Spring is when most people start dreaming of summer, bikinis, and days spent working by the pool or on a beach in Bali… or is that just us? Regardless, you need Grapefruit essential oil in your life if you want to look and feel your best by summer! Besides smelling heavenly, Grapefruit aids in cleansing the body of toxins & water retention, reduces the appearance of cellulite, decreases appetite, stimulates the brain, boosts the immune system, and clears the skin. It tastes fantastic when added to water or homemade lemonade, and has a very calming yet invigorating scent when blended with floral oils like Lavender, Ylang Ylang, or Geranium.
