XO Massage Oil

Ok friends! Raise your hand if you have ever needed a massage?! Yep, every single person needs a massage. Life is rough on our bodies and sometimes a nice back rub is what it takes to fully relax. Your Young Living essential oils can help with this “wind down” (or wind up…) so break them out and put them to good use. Not only will it smell amazing but this blend of Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Orange will absolutely put you in the mood…. to relax.

Lucious Lip Scrub

I have to be honest, I’ve never been a huge lip scrub person. It’s practically an early Christmas miracle if I remember to remove my mascara at the end of the day. That is, until I made this lip scrub. Game changer for real especially this time of year where the air is so dry and it feels like no amount of water is going to keep me hydrated enough to avoid chapped lips. I’ve been doing this at night (ahem, after removing my mascara) and Lord have mercy, it’s glorious.

Everything you need is already in your kitchen! So grab a tiny bowl or even a cup, mix up these ingredients and prepare to have the silkiest lips of your life. Everyone from your baby’s cheeks to your partners kisses will appreciate this new found lip care regimen. Let me know what you think after you’re done smooching!

Beauty Sleep Roller

Just popping in with a quick Beauty Sleep Roller I just made yesterday! I used it last night and I was out like a light in 5 seconds… I had to share.

Sounds amazing right? FCO is Fractionated Coconut Oil and this is what I typically get (aff link) it comes with an easy dispenser and it’s cost effective! Outside of the oils, you’ll need a 10ml roller - these rollers are staples in my house and they’re so pretty. (aff link)

I rolled this on the bottoms of my feet (just trust me) and my forearms before completely sinking into my bed last night. The Valor makes it this beautiful blue color (because of the Blue Tansy) and it smells divine. Go get your beauty sleep on and sweet dreams!

Check out the recipe below - it’s crazy easy and the best part is that all of the oils you need are in your starter kit… again proving it’s the best thing ever.

Simple right?! It smells amazing and refreshing too. I keep this in a small jar in my gym bag and have some at home too. Happy muscles will help you keep those goals and make it a priority to get the steps in. No excuses!

I love making these and putting them into fun ice cube molds for the kids! It’s super simple and easy for breakfast, snacks and even dessert. Not a big tangerine fan? You can use any Young Living Vitality Oil in this recipe - just sub it out for the Tangerine! I think Lemon + Spearmint would be amazing combo.
