Are you looking for a good essential oil to support your respiratory system? A healthy, well supported immune and respiratory system is essential to maintain wellness throughout the seasons.  RC essential oil blend may be exactly what you are looking for!

RC is a blend of 10 oils: Cypress, Spruce, Myrtle, Marjoram, Pine, Lavender, Peppermint and three species of Eucalyptus. It has a fresh, invigorating, woody and earthy aroma that is perfect for running in a diffuser or applying topically.

The oils in this blend include naturally occurring compounds linalol acetate and linalol.  When you take the time learn what these compounds do, you will REALLY appreciate how amazing this blend is!

  • Clears your head while diffusing.

Harvesting Melissa

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to walk the fields of Young Living’s St. Maries, Idaho farm while while listening to Young Living’s founder, Gary Young, teach at a leadership retreat. It was amazing!

Do you know where your oils come from?


Naturally Clean With Thieves

Laundry Spot Remover

1 Tbsp. Thieves Household Cleaner
1 Tbsp. lukewarm water
¼ tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. hydrogen peroxide

Combine Thieves Household Cleaner, water, and baking soda in a small bowl and mix until baking soda is dissolved. Add hydrogen peroxide.

Pre-treat stain (test on an
inconspicuous area first!) by spraying the mixture directly onto stain with a spray bottle or by pouring directly onto stain. Let sit a few minutes, then rinse and wash normally. Discard excess stain remover after finished with laundry for the day -mixture doesn’t keep overnight.


Laundry Detergent

Add 1-2 capfuls (depending on load size) of Thieves Household Cleaner to washer to clean clothes.


DIY Dryer Sheets

Keep your clothes smelling fresh and clean without the harsh chemicals.  Simply add 3-4 drops of your favorite Young Living Essential Oil to a damp wash cloth and add to dryer.  To eliminate static, place 1 or more safety pins through the wash cloth.
Our favorite laundry scents are Lavender, Melaleuca, and Purification.

Jade Lemon

Have you ever heard of Jade Lemon?

It has a delicious lemon-lime flavor that puts me in a happy place. One of my favorite ways to enjoy Jade Lemon is to simple put a drop of the oil into my hand, rub them together and inhale. Ahhh! It makes me feel so good!

I also like to add 4 or 5 drops to my drinking water. Water is good. Citrus oils are good. Jade Lemon water does a body good. 🙂

Jade Lemon (Citrus limon eureka var. formosensisis) is grown in the warm, humid climate of southeast China. While other lemons begin to release some of their oils aromatically as they turn yellow, the jade lemon fruit remains green even in maturity, allowing the concentration of oil to continue within the fruit. The oil is released only after the fruit is picked, giving it a richer and more fragrant aroma.

It takes about 30 Jade Lemons to fill a bottle of Jade Lemon essential oil!

Jade Lemon contains high levels of d-limonene, which helps invigorate, uplift, and energize, as well as support clarity of thought and purpose. This oil supports skin health; helps open and release emotional blocks; and is useful to clean, detox, and purify.

Product Tips:

  • Diffuse to uplift and stimulate the mind and body.
  • Place a drop in the palm of the hand, cup hand over mouth and nose, and inhale deeply to enhance focus, improve clarity, and support concentration.
  • Add 10–15 drops to Young Living lotions and shampoos to enjoy the uplifting aroma throughout the day.
  • Combine with sea salt, V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex, Ylang Ylang, Peppermint, and Lavender to exfoliate the skin.
  • Use as a cleanser to remove stickiness or grease from surfaces; remove gum from hair; or remove crayon or permanent marker from walls.
  • Mix with Citronella essential oil for a pleasant, citrus-scented insect repellant.
  • Add to dish washing detergent for a spot-free rinse and to help clean your dishwasher.
  • Use 8–10 drops with water in a spray bottle to freshen the air.
  • Add 10–15 drops to Young Living Bath & Shower Gel Base for a refreshing shower or bath.
  • Put a few drops on a cotton ball and dab on the inside of shoes to freshen them.
