Summer is a great time to use essential oils. There are lots of fun ways to us oils effectively. Check out these interesting and powerful ways to use essential oils that you may have never heard of before.

Essential oils can be used outdoors, as foot care, on vacation (both in the car and out), at home if you’re not going on vacation, and in grilling recipes. I hope you enjoy all these great ideas of ways to use oils in the Summer.

Outdoors in Summer

First of all, although sun protection is talked about a lot, not very many sunscreens are beneficial for your skin. Since our skin absorbs what we put on it in 26 seconds, we need to make sure what we are putting on our families is safe but effective.

Young Living essential oils (the only brand we use) now has a mineral sunscreen available. Ask me about wholesale prices. I hate for anyone to have to buy retail!


They also have an After Sun Spray if you forgot to apply sunscreen or didn’t have any available. Please ask me about wholesale pricing!

If you enjoy fishing or boating, these oils can help you get your sea legs (along with ginger). I apply peppermint and ginger before going out and then every hour and have great results.

After cleaning fish, use lemon essential oil from Young Living to help get rid of odors.


Do you get easily overheated in the Summer?

Stay cool with this peppermint recipe below. It’s amazing how well this oil works!



Since our feet are seen more in the Summer, it’s important to make them look good. Here are some steps to take to make your feet ready to be seen.


Exfoliating takes off the dead skin from our feet AND it feels great! When you use essential oils, this makes your feet feel even better.


Treat your cuticles to this fun treatment and make those toes look really good!


Don’t forget the all important moisturizing step! Or just use Young Living’s Lavender Lotion and add a few drops to it to make an easy and customized foot lotion.

Use Essential Oils on Vacation

Always take your essential oils on vacation! Use a car diffuser or even just a wooden clothes pin in your car vents and add this oil combination. You’ll feel relaxed and everyone will be in a good mood!

In addition, vacation pit stops can be creepy, but with the Thieves line of products you can know that your family is protected. These are non-toxic alternatives that are still very powerful. Use them everywhere you go!


Can’t go on vacation?

Have no fear, a diffuser with these oil combinations in them can help you feel like you are in a different place. Diffuse these at home or work to help you enjoy some time away even if you can’t go anywhere.


Cooking with Oils in the Summer

Who doesn’t love some great grill marinade recipes? Use essential oils in your marinades! Whether you like citrusy or mediterranean, these marinades will definitely spice up your Summer cooking.


In addition, here’s a fun drink recipe using lemon essential oil!


Therefore, whatever you do this Summer, or wherever life takes you, make sure you have your oils handy. Keep your family safe using natural and toxin-free products from Young Living and you can’t go wrong.
