7 Helpful Habits for a More Productive You

A productive day isn’t just about getting a lot done, it’s about getting the important stuff done—and it doesn’t happen by accident. You need to have an effective plan in place for annihilating that to-do list and finding greater satisfaction in life as a result. Here are some tips and tricks to help you do just that:

  1. Have a game planhighest potential essential oil blend

Sometimes we’re not productive because we don’t know where to start. Take five minutes the night before or first thing in the morning to prioritize your day and make a clear plan of action. While planning, try diffusing an inspiring blend like Highest Potential™ and make sure to ask yourself: “Will this task get me closer to what I want to achieve?”

  1. Get off to a good startYoung Living Citrus Fresh Essential Oil Blend

Set yourself up for success each day by creating and sticking to a good morning routine. Rise early and eat a healthy breakfast, exercise, or tackle a nagging task. This productive jump-start will set the tone for the rest of your day. Need a little extra help getting out of bed? Try diffusing a bright, sunny scent like Citrus Fresh™ to help make early mornings more pleasant. Check out the YL Blog Recipe tab or Healthy & Fit tab for more ideas to better your morning routine.

  1. Tackle the most important tasks firstBrain Power

If you could get only one task completed today, what would it be? Make that task your No. 1 priority. Time and energy are limited resources, so don’t procrastinate! You don’t want to run out of steam before getting to the things that really matter. Diffuse Brain Power™ essential oil blend to help promote a sense of clarity and focus when you need it most.

  1. Take it one at a time

SurrenderMultitasking is actually less productive than you might think. Research shows that the brain can only successfully focus on one thing at a time. Give each task your full and undivided attention to get it done as efficiently as possible. Then move on to the next item on your list and do the same.
Make sure to have a plan for dealing with distractions as they come along. For example, take a quick inhale of Surrender™ essential oil blend to help cast off inhibitions that may be limiting your potential. You can also keep an idea book close by to record distracting thoughts and ideas so you can come back to them at the right time.

  1. Take breaksEn-R-Gee

Focusing on one thing for too long can actually cause you to get less done. Take short, designated breaks to keep your mind fresh and on task. Pushups, meditation, yoga, and even the fresh, rejuvenating aroma of essential oils like En-R-Gee™ or Jade Lemon™ can all help you do a quick reset. Just make sure to set a strict time frame for your break or that brief meditation session could easily turn into a three-hour nap.

  1. Keep your list close byLavender

Even the best planned days can get turned upside down when life throws a curve ball. Having your list of tasks close by is a great way to readjust and reprioritize when things don’t go as planned. Diffuse a calming oil like Lavender and remember that as long as you’re making the best use of the time that you have available, you are having a productive day. Consult your task list whenever you have free time and select the most appropriate task to complete.

  1. Relax and reflectStress Away

Make sure to also include time to rest and recharge in that busy schedule. Apply Stress Away™ to your wrists and reflect on your day—the parts that worked well and the parts that didn’t. Readjust to continue moving toward being as productive as possible. Not only will this help you get more done, but it’s also a great chance to let your mind unwind and decompress. Take the time to celebrate all you’ve accomplished and reward yourself for the hard work you’ve put in!

3 Tips for Great-Looking Skin

  1. Exfoliate 

Lavender-oatmeal soapYour skin is constantly working to regenerate. As this process happens, dead skin cells move to the surface. Buildup of dead skin cells can dull your complexion and suck up the moisture and benefits from your skin care products. As you get older, this process slows, increasing buildup.
That’s where exfoliation comes in. Using a gentle exfoliator one to three times a week removes dead skin, helping your inner beauty shine through. Pay attention to how your skin reacts, though, since over-exfoliation can irritate the skin and cause reddening—you know your skin best!
We love our new Lavender-Oatmeal Bar Soap for gently exfoliating your body with oat bran,leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.
If you prefer using a body gel, try using an exfoliating glove or a gentle salt scrub as part of your shower routine.
  1. Moisturize

ART® Light Moisturizer Once you’ve exfoliated, give back to your skin with your favorite moisturizer! Moisturizer is the easiest way to get back your glow while helping your skin look and feel softer and smoother.
Moisturize immediately after bathing by patting your skin dry with a towel, locking in moisture. Give the sensitive skin on your face added hydration with our ART® Light Moisturizer or brighten and even the appearance of skin tone with Sheerlumé™. If you already use a facial moisturizer you love but love the benefits of essential oils, try mixing a small amount of Frankincense or Cedarwood to your daily application of liquid foundation to help your skin look dewy all day long.
Increase the moisture in the air of your workspace with a humidifying diffuser like our Dewdrop™,Home, or Bamboo diffusers.
  1. Take care of yourself

Water Bottle and Lemon VitalityLook and feel your best by following these three easy tips:


Your grandmother’s beauty sleep is one of the best ways to rejuvenate your body and skin every single day. The Mayo Clinic has a great resource to see how much sleep you need each night, depending on your age and other factors.


Like the rest of your body, your skin dries out when you aren’t drinking enough water. Ensure you stay hydrated by keeping a reusable, spill-proof water bottle on hand at your desk, running errands, or even around the house. Flavor your water by infusing it with Vitality essential oils and fruit. You’ll love the burst of flavor, and your body will love the hydration!

Eat Healthy

Give your body the nutrients it needs! Research suggests that eating a diet full of antioxidant-rich foods like carrots, apricots, leafy greens, tomatoes, blueberries, legumes, fatty fish, and nuts can help improve your overall health and with it, your skin’s appearance.

This summer, be confident in your own beautiful skin! These easy tips are just a few ways to start, if you haven’t already.

DIY Essential Oil-Infused Dry Shampoo

DIY Essential Oil-Infused Dry Shampoo

  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2 drops Cedarwood essential oil
  • 2 drops Rosemary essential oil
  • 1 drop Tea Tree essential oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, for dark hair only


  • Combine all ingredients.
  • Put in a container of your choice, such as an empty salt shaker or baby powder bottle.
  • Sprinkle on roots of hair and massage into scalp.
  • Leave for 2–3 minutes to absorb hair’s natural oils.
  • Brush through hair.

There’s nothing worse than the feeling of dirty, greasy hair, but did you know that washing your hair too often can leave hair prone to dryness and breakage? It’s easy to keep your locks looking lustrous and lifted and extend time between washes by applying a dry shampoo! Using ingredients you already have in your cupboards such as corn starch and baking soda, this DIY Dry Shampoo is free of harsh parabens, dyes, and perfumes that can damage hair and cause breakage. Cornstarch absorbs excess oil, while baking soda and Cedarwood, Rosemary and Tea Tree essential oils make hair smell fresh and support the qualities of a healthy scalp.
You can experiment with your own blend of essential oils to find a scent that works best for you! We love Lavender, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Peppermint for their wonderful aromas and various skin-care benefits. If you decide to add cocoa for dark hair, try using oils that complement the scent of chocolate like Orange, Peppermint, or Cinnamon.

Essential Oils for Babies & Kids

Using Essential Oils on Babies and Kids

Here are some highlights on using essential oils on children to get you started!
Most Common Oils Used for Babies:
Melaleuca Alternifolia (aka Tea Tree Oil)
Roman Chamomile
German Chamomile
Citrus Fresh (a blended oil)
Proper Dilution
Dilute 1-2 drops of the oil in 1 tablespoon of carrier oil
For general immune support, just 1-2 times a day or less is good. I’ve even found that when I use oils right after we’ve been somewhere where I think they’ve picked up germs, they stay well with just 1-2 applications afterwards.
When their immune systems need more support, I apply the oils 2-4 times a day. Essential oils metabolize in the body in 2 1/2 to 3 hours, so you can technically apply that often.
My Favorite Carrier Oils
Young Living’s V-6 oil (a combo of 6 vegetable oils, including fractionated coconut and jojoba, two of my favs!)
Fractionated coconut oil
Sweet Almond Oil
Grapeseed Oil
Common Oil Uses for Babies
Note: Roman Chamomile is gentler than German, so it is best suited for newborns and infants.
Immune Support
Recommended Oils: Lavender, Frankincense, Lemon
Use topically by diluting 1-2 drops in 1 tablespoon of carrier oil of choice and massage on the Vita Flex points on the bottoms of the feet, 2 to 4 times a day when sick.
Digestion Support
Recommended Oils: Fennel, German Chamomile, Melissa, or Marjoram
Use topically by diluting 1-2 drops in 2 tablespoons carrier oil of choice, and massage a small amount gently on stomach and back
Respiratory Support
Recommended Oils: Thyme or Lemon
Diffuse with an aromatherapy diffuser
Dilute 1-2 drops in 2 tablespoons and massage a little on neck and chest
Recommended Oils: Ylang ylang, Lavender, or Roman Chamomile
Diffuse with an aromatherapy diffuser
Dilute (same)
Diaper Area
Recommended Oils: Lavender (This really works for us! I get a tablespoon or so of my homemade diaper rash cream and add 1 drop of lavender to it, then rub on.)
Dilute 1-2 drops in 2 tablespoons of carrier oil of choice or buy KidScents Tender Tush from Young Living
Respiratory System
Recommended Oils: Melaleuca Alternifolia
Put a dilute drop of oil on a cotton ball and place in the ear (but do NOT put the oil itself directly in the ear), rub diluted oil behind ear
Digestion and Liver Support
Recommended Oil: Geranium
Dilute and apply on the liver area and on the liver Vita Flex feet points
For Healthy Skin
Recommended Oils: Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Rose, or Sandalwood
Dilute and apply on location
Recommended Oils: Lavender, German Chamomile, Ginger, Marjoram, Melaleuca
Dilute and apply a small amount to feet

Six Ways to Save

Invest in Yourself with Six Simple Ways to Save

1. Divide your paycheck and start saving

Financial Freedom Tip 1It’s simple economics: You have to make more money than you spend. Even though we all understand this principle, it’s sometimes easy to let our budgets get away from us.
If you struggle with balancing your budget, start by dividing each of your paychecks between your savings and checking accounts. Set a specific percentage to automatically deposit into your savings account so you’re less tempted to spend it. This will help you save without even thinking about it and make it easier to avoid temptations like midday snacks, appetizers and drinks at dinner, and late-night online shopping sprees.
Whether you set aside $5 or 10 percent, it’s just important that you start. Once you’ve made this practice a habit, it will be easier to put more and more away over time.

2. Ditch soda, alcohol, and other expensive specialty drinks

Water Bottle and Lemon VitalityDrinking water is a no-brainer for good health, but it’s a winning financial strategy as well. Soda, juice, and especially alcohol can hike up your grocery bill and restaurant check. Instead of choosing a daily afternoon soda and drink with dinner, opt for water most days. You’ll save a good chunk of cash when you indulge only every so often or not at all.
Keep things interesting with a drop of Vitality™ essential oil. Add a splash of summery flavor with Lime Vitality, Lemon Vitality, Grapefruit Vitality, or Orange Vitality. You can also get a quick pick-me-up when you add a drop of refreshing Peppermint Vitality to your ice-cold water. You’ll be surprised how much you save when you ditch your usual splurge and stick to water instead.

3. Try eating in—outside

Financial Freedom Tip 3Eating in doesn’t mean you have to keep meals indoors. Add a little fun to homemade dinner and bring a picnic to a park, the beach, or even your backyard. You’ll make your meal a little more special without pricey entrees, unknown ingredients, and added tips. Whether the meal is simple or extravagant, you’re sure to make a memory when you host it in a fun setting—all for a fraction of the cost of a restaurant, takeout, or fast food.

4. Prioritize your health and wellness

Financial Freedom Tip 4Get enough sleep, exercise regularly, take your supplements, wash your hands—you know what it takes to stay healthy. But do you think about how these efforts can save you money? A little rest, healthy food, and exercise help prevent expensive medical bills down the road.
While there are lots of ways to give your body the attention it deserves, something as simple as a new workout, an additional healthy meal each week, or a full night’s rest can kick-start a healthier you. Check out some of our simple ways to revamp your everyday TLC.

5. Experiment with DIY and homemade personal careLavender-Oatmeal Bath Soak with Young Living Essential Oils

You don’t have to spend a fortune for a spa day filled with facials, body scrubs, and hair masks. Pamper yourself at home with easy-to-make DIY goodies. You’ll feel great because you took the time for extra pampering and because you saved money! Try some of the DIY ideas featured on our blog or create your own at-home beauty favorites.
  • Use a DIY detangler for silky soft hair.
  • Take a break in a steamy bath enhanced with a calmingoatmeal soak.
  • Get your feet ready for flip-flops and strappy sandals with three steps to fab feet.
  • Try a fun, fizzy shower bomb or relaxing bath salts, both infused with refreshing essential oils.

6. Make a clean sweep with homemade cleanersThieves Household Cleaner

Making your own household cleaners is a great way to save money and keep harmful chemicals out of your home. Vinegar, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide are all great replacements for store-bought, processed cleaners, but Thieves® Household Cleaner makes it even easier to whip up affordable, naturally derived cleaners for your whole home. Infused with the power of Thieves, this cleaner makes it easy to create everything from window spray to carpet cleaner. Need some help getting started? Check out our blog post for three innovative ways to clean your whole home with Thieves Household Cleaner!

While it’s important to save and work toward financial freedom, it always helps to keep things balanced. Use these practical steps to work toward your goals and you’ll avoid feeling so restricted that your resolve breaks down and you end up filling your shopping cart, running up an expensive restaurant bill, or splurging on an expensive spa treatment. Give yourself a reasonable treat once in a while, find little ways to cut down your spending, and always keep your long-term goals in mind. It’s the small steps you take every day that will get you there!
