Most Popular Essential Oils to Use:

For those that have Young Living oils, we’ll be sharing how to use the oils in the starter kit on dogs. For those that don’t have Young Living oils, you can get started with the instructions on the right side of the page to get your oils at wholesale. Or you’re welcome to contact me or schedule a free 20 minute wellness call with me (If you are not already affiliated with an essential oil company) so you can ask my any questions you like about oils. starter kit

Copaiba is first on the list. It is a great oil for digestion, irritations, and for gaining flexibility and mobility. Look up beta-caryophyllene and see what properties copaiba has in common with other plants. copaiba

Use frankincense for emotions, skin, brain health, immune support, and focus. This is such a versatile oil that everyone should be using. frankincense

Lavender! What would we do without lavender at our house! This is such a versatile and calming oil. It’s great for skin, emotions, calming, and so much more.


Peppermint is one of my favorite oils because it is so powerful and useful for so many things. It is great for the digestive system. We also use it for sinus health (on humans), mental focus, and for cooling us off when it’s hot.


DiGize is a Young Living oil blend that is also key for helping promote a healthy digestive system.


PanAway is another Young Living exclusive blend that many people and animals use to support healthy joints and muscles.


Purification is another Young Living exclusive blend that helps freshen up anything stinky or keep annoyances away when you’re outside.


Stress Away blend – No one has time for stress so use this instead.

  1. I have never thought to use essential oils with my dog. She is so scared of storms so next time I will whack on the diffuser and add some lavender. Great idea!! Thanks for sharing with #motivationalmondays
