Link Up: Leah, Young Living Consultant, Five summer favorites from Young Living.

 Hello there! My name is Leah, I met Jaclyn through Instagram and our mutual love of bird watching.  I am from Minnesota where my husband and I love to hike the state parks and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife.

I am so excited and honored that Jaclyn asked me to share a bit about Young Living and how essential oils can help us improve our health and wellness (especially during summer!).  Young Living is known for their top-quality, pure essential oils.  They guarantee that everything they produce is free of synthetics or harmful chemicals with their Seed to Seal Promise (link).  They put great care into what they produce, so we can reap the amazing benefits these plants have to offer!   

the top five best natural essential oils

What are essential oils?

You may be wondering, what are essential oils? Essential oils are aromatic, concentrated plant extracts that are carefully obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing or resin tapping. They come from botanicals such as flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, and seeds. We can use them to support all the different systems and processes of our bodies from skin to sleep, emotions to muscles, hormones to hair growth and more!  Young Living also provides a variety of oil infused, non-toxic products, some of which I love to bring with us when out for a hike or relaxing at the beach.

5 of my Summer favorites from Young Living:



This is the best sunscreen I have ever used! No chemicals, easy coverage AND good for your skin. Instead of toxic chemicals, it offers broad-spectrum SPF protection using naturally derived plant and mineral based ingredients, including non-nano zinc oxide—a physical UV blocker.  Available in 10 SPF & 50 SPF.  A little goes a long way!


Young Living created a 100 percent naturally derived, essential oil-infused alternative. Repels ticks, mosquitos, and fleas.  It is even gentle enough to use on kids when used as directed!  Stay tuned for a DIY Bug Spray Recipe (this is always packed when we go hiking).


LavaDerm Cooling Mist gently hydrates, soothes, and rejuvenates your sun kissed skin. Made with skin-loving ingredients like Aloe Vera and premium essential oils like Lavender and Helichrysum.  So grateful for this when we camped in 90-degree weather last month! (I’ve got a DIY recipe for this too.)


I have recently become obsessed with the Grapefruit Bergamot Vitality Drops + Electrolytes.  Perfect to pack on a day of adventuring in the hot sun.  Made with premium essential oils and natural electrolytes for an extra hydration boost when added to water.  You’ll guzzle your water right down, tastes so good!  There is also a lavender lemon flavor.


Need some muscle relief after hiking or playing all day? Enter Deep Relief Roll-On.  It is one of Young Living's most popular essential oil blends. It features nine invigorating essentials oils, including Dorado Azul, Peppermint, and Wintergreen, and is your perfect companion to soothe fatigued muscles after physical activity.  I love to roll this on my feet and shoulders after a long day of hiking.  Gives a cooling and soothing sensation.

To get the wholesale prices (24% discount), become a member with one of the many starter kits.  Then add on your additional products you want to try.  Once a member, always a member… you get wholesale prices for life! And no obligation to a monthly order.  I would love to have you on my team and be your essential oil friend and educator!

  1. The insect repellant sounds like a good product. Ticks are a major concern where I live, thanks to the over population of deer. Happy 4th weekend!

  2. Oy, this Leah lass sure is a perdy one, bet her hubbyhubs is also blonde and green eyed and they'll have many cute little human kittens together!
    I've bought a repellent bracelet this summer and of course, since I bought it, we have no mosquitos as it is too hot even for them pesky little suckers. Oh, well, will leave it for next year. Water refreshers sound fun.

    1. I wonder if the bracelet works! It reminds me on my great great aunt Fran. Every bbq she shows up with all these strange things on her including bracelets and pin on fans that are supposed to deflect mosquitos. Lol

    2. I have a diffuser bracelet with wooden beads that I like to put Citronella essential oil on. Just an extra way of deterring the bugs!

  3. One for keeping ticks away sure is a win. Non nasty chemical sunscreen is great too.

    1. Yes! I definitely want to try the sunscreen too. Sunscreen always leaves me oily and makes my screen break out. Maybe this one is better.

    2. This is the best sunscreen I've ever used! just remember a little goes a long way. I use the little residual sunscreen left on my hands for my face - I don't like a greasy face either!

  4. My favorite essential oil is peppermint oil. I use it for headache relief all the time. When we eventually move to the country, I'm sure I'll be quite concerned about ticks more than I am now. I had one in my leg 4 years ago and the damn bump is STILL there from where we removed it.

    1. I didn't know that peppermint oil helps with headaches. I use peppermint oil for nausea and it works really well too. Yikes about that tick! Did you ever get the tick tested or you waited to see if any rings developed?

    2. Peppermint is soooooooo good for head tension! It's a staple essential oil I can't live without!

    3. I didn’t test it, just watched for rings. Thankfully, just a bump the size of a bug bite was all that came of it without rings. The bump is small now, but still a bit noticeable. Ticks are nasty little buggers.
