Essential Oils Are a Holistic Approach to Wellness and Self-Care Especially During COVID-19


Right now, the majority of us are in the same boat; stressed! It’s easy to become overwhelmed by all of the constant, daily, and even hourly updates of the unprecedented virus; COVID-19. No matter how hard we try, it’s not the easiest to unplug because we have to stay informed on a daily basis. Reason being, it’s now hitting our cities, communities and neighborhoods, in such a way that we can’t just escape it, and just take a mental health day. Or can we?

Since we are all “quarantined” for the most part, in our homes, taking a mental health, self-care day may be easier than we think. We know, we know, the kids are home and you’re scrambling to figure out how to find harmony in getting work done, if you’re fortunate to be able to work from home and home school. Now as a parent, that part is not easy. But, we can’t become so overwhelmed that we fall into a state of depression, and or allow for anxiety to take over. We must find ways to cope. Essential oils are a start. With so many options on the market, it may be hard to narrow done which oils are best, along with which brands will help our specific needs, however I highly recommend a brand that has been around for 26 years. Yeah you read that right. Here are some options when trying to decide what is best for you and your situation right now, during the Corona crisis.

Cool AzulFor after your at home workouts because they are essential

Cool Azul™ is a proprietary essential oil blend created by D. Gary Young that includes the light aroma of Dorado Azul and the warm fragrance of Plectranthus Oregano (both Young Living-exclusive oils), along with Peppermint, Wintergreen, Sage, Copaiba, Blue Cypress, Elemi, and other oils. Apply this blend topically for a cool sensation and aromatic experience. Cool Azul is ideal for use before, during, and after physical activities. Attach an AromaGlide™ Roller Fitment to the bottle and pack it in your gym bag, purse, or backpack for quick and easy on-the-go use.

Lavender – Diffuser for aromatherapy and beyond

Lavender essential oil has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. It’s this dynamic aroma that has made the plant a classic for perfumes, soaps, fresheners, and beauty products. As one of our most popular products, Lavender is a great beginner oil and a must for every home. Lavender essential oil isn’t just a favorite because of its classic scent—it’s also highly versatile. From skin care products to relaxing routines, this oil can infuse and enhance many areas of your life.

Stress Away – We just need it to go away posthaste

Young Living’s proprietary Stress Away™ Roll-On provides a comforting aroma to create a relaxing moment in everyday life. Whether you’re applying it as a personal fragrance or creating a relaxing massage experience, you’ll love incorporating this ready-to-roll blend in your life. The distinct mix of Vanilla and Lime enhances Stress Away’s unique and pleasant scent. Its sweet smell and relaxing aroma make it one of Young Living’s most popular products. Stress Away Roll-On includes Lavender essential oil, as well as Copaiba and Cedarwood. These ingredients are expertly blended with the exotic scent of Ocotea, a unique Ecuadorean-sourced essential oil.

Tranquil – Relaxation is key right now

Tranquil™ Roll-On is perfect for inviting relaxation into your life. The elegant roll-on combines the familiar, comforting aroma of Lavender, Cedarwood, and Roman Chamomile into a blend that is easy to use and even easier to enjoy.
