I talk a lot about different Young Living oils and products…
I talk a lot about different topics having to do with health and wellness and oils…
I talk a lot about creating a routine with essential oils and oil products…
…I talk a lot. ;)
And while I try to work in as many of my personal stories as possible into each conversation about oils, I haven’t yet really explained what “A Day in my Oily Life” looks like.
Let’s talk about my oily routine! I’ll take you through a typical day in my life from wake up to Zzz’s and all the oils in between.
I am self-employed with a home-based business, but I think my general routine could apply to anyone with any work or home-life schedule!
What is so great about most of these products is that they can easily be brought along on the go. If you live a “go-go-go” lifestyle, you need oils. Maybe eeeeven more than I do. ;)
A Day in My Oily Life
6:15 AM My usual morning wake up call…in the form of my dog whining to be fed breakfast. He is the most food motivated dog I’ve ever known. Gotta get those noms.
The first thing I put in my body is water. A little H2O can help get everything moving through my body (detoxing from the very beginning of the day) and rehydrates me after being asleep for about 8 hours.
Then, I take a few supplements:
Cortistop: I love this supplement because it helps support healthy adrenals and hormone levels. You would be amazed at how much of the population probably struggles with some level of adrenal fatigue, which causes all sorts of issues—from general lack of energy to anger and emotional issues. Our adrenal glands are responsible for the production of cortisol, which is necessary for our adrenalin. We need some cortisol, but an overproduction (or under-production) of the hormone can wreak havoc on our emotional and physical health.
I take 2 cortistop capsules every morning for 8 weeks, and then I take 4 weeks off. Hormones cycle naturally, so it is important to cycle this hormone-support supplement as well.
MultiGreens: I got this supplement for free one month on the Essential Rewards promos, and I’ve been taking it faithfully every since. Here’s what Young Living says about Multigreens:
MultiGreens™ is a nutritious chlorophyll formula designed to boost vitality by working with the glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems.* MultiGreens is made with spirulina, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, Pacific kelp, and therapeutic-grade essential oils.
Raise your hand if you don’t eat all the greens you know you should? I see you, boo. Me too. So I take Multigreens so that I know I am getting all the necessary nutrients I need that I might not be getting from food! I’ve noticed that my body and mind are more energetic and that I don’t experience as much of an afternoon slump when I take Multigreens.
PowerGize: This is the newest supplement I’ve started taking in just the last few days. PowerGize is a supplement that can help aid in recovery from exercise. It is technically formulated with men in mind, so I take half of the recommended dosage every morning. Instead of 2 capsules, I take one.
Vitality Oils Capsule: Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint: I also make an oils capsule every morning with three vitality oils: Lemon, Grapefruit, and Peppermint. I love peppermint for digestive support, grapefruit for the way it supports my metabolism, and lemon for the energy support. I usually add a couple drops of a carrier oil as well. I put all the oils in an empty veggie capsule and take it with water.
I also brush my teeth with Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste. I’ll talk about that later on.
7 AM Around this time, I drink a little black coffee and sit down in my comfy chair to do my morning routine. You can see all the details of my morning routine here, but let’s talk about the oils I include in that routine.
Sacred Mountain Blend: This blend is one of the newest in my stash (I’ve only had it for a few months), but it one of my absolute favorites. I diffuse it in the small diffuser I have next to the chair in my office every morning. Sacred Mountain blend helps encourage feelings of security and groundedness. I love how the blend smells like the woods and helps me remember that my roots run deep here. I journal and meditate with the Sacred Mountain enveloping me and I feel grounded and rooted in this place.
Infused7 Kit + Oola Blend, Oola Grow: You can read all about how I use the Infused7 kit and the Oola oils in my morning routine here. I love how each of the oils really does smell exactly as I think it should…I think the Fun blend smells like “Fun”—it promotes feelings of a healthy “Fun” level in life. I think the Balance blend makes me feel “Balanced.” The Grow blend helps encourage me to “Grow" as a person. My morning affirmations exercise is so improved by these oil blends.
8 AM After my morning routine, I hit the gym to run on the treadmill or drive to a trailhead to run outside, and I never forget my Lemon Vitality oil.
Lemon Vitality: I put a couple drops of Lemon in my water bottle or in my camelbak to help keep me hydrated and energized during my workouts! It also helps make my water taste much better. ;)
9-9:30 AM When I hop in the shower after a run, my oily shampoo and conditioner are waiting for me!
Lavender Shampoo & Conditioner: I use the Lavender shampoo & conditioner. I love how they smell! I know I’m nourishing my hair with oils instead of harmful chemicals.
I also have my homemade face scrub in the shower ready to use. I use Frankincense, Lavender, and Citrus Fresh oils in the recipe.
Relaxation and Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oils: I use Young Living’s massage oils as my body lotion. I put the Relaxation oil on my upper body and the Cel-Lite Magic oil on my lower body to keep my skin hydrated.
Beauty Serum: I use the Young Living Essential Beauty Serum for Dry skin as my face lotion. I love how the Serum helps keep my face feeling soft and smooth and hydrated—even in the winter!
Balance Complete: My favorite breakfast is the Balance Complete meal-replacement shake! I add almond milk and a handful of ice cubes in a shaker bottle with one serving of Balance Complete and shake it up. There is a bunch of dietary fiber in the shake, and it helps me feel full all morning!
Noon I go about my work schedule until I’m hungry for lunch, and then I grab a couple of other oils and products.
Ningxia Red: I like to drink my Ningxia Red (my liquid multivitamin) in the middle of the day for a little mid-day pick-me-up. Ningxia Red is super revitalizing and I feel energetic and hydrated when I drink it. I prefer to put a serving of Ningxia Red in a glass, add a couple ice cubes, and a few ounces of water. Sometimes I’ll also add a drop or two of Red Shot oil blend or an extra drop of a citrus vitality oil—like orange or lemon.
Throughout the Day
I have multiple diffusers running throughout the day in almost every room in my home. Lately, I’ve loved to diffuse Christmas Spirit Blend—maybe with an extra drop of Northern Lights Black Spruce.
I also have Thieves Household Cleaner and Thieves Laundry Detergent that I use throughout the day as necessary. I use the Household Cleaner for everything. It has replaced every cleaning product in my home!
10 PM The last oils and oily products I use during the day happen at night as I’m getting ready for bed.
Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste: This is my favorite toothpaste in the Thieves oral care line. I love how squeeky clean my teeth feel after I brush them with the Dentarome toothpaste.
Thieves Floss: I just got this floss to replace my regular mint floss. So far I like that the Thieves floss is gentle (it doesn’t tear up my gums) but still strong enough that it doesn’t break or fray in my teeth.
Raven Blend: I put this blend on to support respiratory health before I go to sleep. I know I sleep better when I’m breathing freely, and Raven helps me breathe easy. I put a drop on my chest and a little on the end of my nose or over my sinuses.
Stress Away & Lavender: I put a couple drops of both Stress Away and Lavender in my diffuser next to my bed at night. I have the diffuser running on the lowest setting so it runs at intervals all night long. I have the aroma in the air around me all night helping me feel calm and restful.
So that’s it! That’s what a day in my oily life looks like. I’ve integrated oily products into every aspect of my life to support my wellness, and I’ve ditched chemicals for good!
