Frankincense (Boswellia carteri) has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. It has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin.

Lemon (Citrus limon) has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant. It is delightfully refreshing in water and may be beneficial for the skin. Lemon may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods. Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it. Lavender is an adaptogen, and therefore can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy. Therapeutic-grade lavender is highly regarded for skin and beauty. It may be used to soothe and cleanse common cuts, bruises, and skin irritations.

Melaleuca AlternifoliaMelaleuca Alternifolia
Melaleuca alternifolia is highly regarded for its wide range of uses. It supports the immune system and is beneficial for the skin. Commonly known as Tea Tree Oil.

Peppermint (Mentha piperita) has a strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion, it may also restore digestive efficiency.

Joy™ is a delightful blend of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa, and Rose essential oils that harmonize for a sweet, joyful aroma.

Our Other Diffusers

Favorite Essential Oil Diffusers


zaq diffuserThe Zaq Noor diffuser runs for 4 continuous hours with no timer {meaning you have to shut it off or let it run out of water}. It has a multi colored light which can be set to change colors, stay on one color, or be turned off. This diffuser is recommended for rooms 200-300 sq. feet. You can buy it on Amazon here.  We own two of these {pink and green – for our kids} and they both work well after much use almost two years after purchase.



briteleafs diffuser

The Briteleafs diffuser is actually my very favorite for a few reasons. It has the same color feature as the diffuser above, but this one has a timer feature!  You can set it to run for 30, 60, 120 or 180 minutes!  This diffuser is recommended for rooms 120-220 sq. feet and we use it in our master bedroom. Sadly, I broke our first diffuser by letting oil leak onto the on/off button {don’t do this!}. Prior to my error, this diffuser worked beautifully for almost 2 years. After I broke the Briteleafs model, I found one that looked exactly the same on Amazon but made by Signstek, it was only $29.99 so I took a shot!  It looks exactly the same, box and everything and so far works great! My favorite diffuser is back to work in our bedroom and I will be ordering more of these!

Resources ~ Books

Here's a list of online retailers to browse through for reference books and materials.

Our Favorite Products ~ Lemon Essential Oil


Lemon oil rocks.  It is also one of the more inexpensive oils.  Win Win!

There are SO many uses for lemon oil.  One of our family favorites is using it for cleaning gunk and grime {the sticky kind} off of surfaces.  Here’s an example from our Instagram one day when we were using it to clean old hooks from our pot rack.

Lemon (Citrus limon) has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting. Lemon consists of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant. It is delightfully refreshing in water and may be beneficial for the skin. Lemon may also be used to enhance the flavor of foods.

Our Favorite Products ~ Ningxia Red

Ningxia Red

We were hesitant to begin using Ningxia Red due to cost.  I was making a mistake and viewing it as a bottle of juice, when it’s so much more than that, and the serving size is only 1 ounce!  Once I changed my thinking it made much more sense and we began using it.  We all call it “red juice” thanks to our kids, and when someone is feeling a bit under the weather, our red juice consumption increases! 

This is definitely one of our favorite Young Living products to have around and we do our best to never run out!  We buy the Essential Rewards Kit {item #4893}, which contains 4 big bottles, and 30 individual serving pouches. This is the most cost effective way to buy Ningxia Red.

NingXia Red® is a powerful antioxidant drink that contains whole Ningxia wolfberry puree—a super blend of blueberry, aronia, cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural stevia extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. Its health benefits include support from head to toe, via a whole body nutrient infusion. NingXia Wolfberries have been cherished for centuries for its health, energy, and longevity benefits. Whole Ningxia wolfberries and other nutrient-dense fruit juices make NingXia Red the perfect choice for optimizing wellness and stepping up to a whole new level of health.

Ingredients ~
Proprietary NingXia Red Blend 29g Ningxia Wolfberry Puree (Lycium barbarum), Blueberry Juice Concentrate (Vaccinium corymbosum), Plum Juice Concentrate (Prunus domestica), Cherry Juice Concentrate (Prunus avium), Aronia Juice Concentrate (Aronia melanocarpa), Pomegranate Juice Concentrate (Punica granatum) Proprietary Essential blend 50mg Grape (Vitis vinifera) seed extract, Orange EO (Citrus sinensis), Yuzu EO (Citrus junos), Lemon EO (Citrus limon), Tangerine EO (Citrus reticulata) Other ingredients: Tartaric acid, natural blueberry flavor, pure vanilla extract, malic acid, pectin, sodium benzoate/potassium sorbate, natural stevia extract.
