We love using essential oils in diffusers on our bedside table, while soaking in baths, and during our skin care routine. But these drops of Mother Nature’s best are more than just at-home staples—they’re total game changers wherever you go!
Read on for how to utilize the power of essential oils while out and about, during your workday, and yes, also at home (we couldn’t resist!).
On the go
In your purse or backpack“I don’t need any more calm,” said no one ever. Wherever your errands take you, a swipe of CBD Calm Roll-On on your neck, forehead, or wrists will go a long way to quiet your hectic day.
In your carHas cruising in your car turned into a traffic terror? Drop light and bright essential oils into your Car Vent Diffuser while you navigate hectic highways.
In your travel bagNo matter where you’re at, getting rid of gross grime is ideal. When your travel agenda looks a little more planes and trains and less automobiles, use Thieves® Wipes to spruce up public spaces with one swipe.
In your toiletries bagWhen a hot, sweaty day or a sobbing session in your car (we’ve all been there) messes up your makeup, reach for Savvy Minerals® Makeup Remover Wipes to clean up under-eye smudges or wash off makeup altogether.
In your gym bagDo your tired muscles need a rest day? Take it one step further by treating yourself to a post-fitness massage with Cool Azul® Sports Gel. That way, when you get back to your gym grind, you’ll be in tip-top shape.
In your diaper bagWith little wigglers around, you’ll need Seedlings® Baby Wipes on hand like your life depends on it. But if you’re traveling without kids, don’t underestimate the power of a wipe to clean up sticky hands after eating, dirty hands after adventuring, and everything in between.
At the office
In your deskNeed an exotic escape in between reports and deadlines? Keep Stress Away™ Roll-On in your desk drawer for a warm, fruity, tropical aroma that helps you imagine you’re island hopping, not meeting hopping.
In your lunchboxWe could all do better at drinking more water, but it’s just so boring! Add a splash of YL Vitality Drops next time you fill up in the breakroom, so you can stay hydrated during your crazy nine-to-five.
In the kitchen
Have you created the various concoctions you need to clean the counters, scrub the floors, and degrease the oven? Store your DIY cleaners in stainless steel spray bottles, labeled so you can keep each solution straight.
In the bathroomYou probably diffuse Purification® in the bathroom to combat…well…you know. But make sure you’re incorporating plant-based products like Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap into every area you can.
In the bedroomHere’s another Seedlings tip that isn’t just for babies: Spritz your bedsheets and pillow cases with Seedlings® Linen Spray for the dreamiest combo of essential oils you’ve ever smelled.
In the living roomOkay, we almost made it through an entire post without mentioning our classic diffusers, but we couldn’t help ourselves! May we suggest the Haven Diffuser? It’s gorgeous in every decor and lights up those cozy gathering spots.
Spring is in the air, and it's finally time to open the windows and let out all the stuffiness of winter. Spring is a perfect time to start fresh, and that includes getting your house deep cleaned.
Spring cleaning can be daunting, especially if you don't break your tasks down into smaller chunks. Here at Sha Faun Enterprises, we tackle one room (or even half a room) at a time. Before you know it, your house will be clean and ready for a new season of joy!
Keep your stress levels down and get your house spring-ready with Sha Faun and our favorite Young Living essential oils for cleaning!
Give your kitchen a do-over.
Every spring, we try to tackle our kitchen first. The kitchen is the center of our home. We cook, eat, meet, and live in our kitchen. Every spring, we try to work in our cabinets and get rid of expired or old foods and give our appliances a good cleaning. Young Living Essential oils are a great way to keep your kitchen smelling fresh.
When you clean out your fridge, place a few drops of your favorite essential oil into a carton of baking soda. We love using citrus for its fresh and clean scent. The combination of baking soda and Young Living essential oils will keep your fridge deodorized for months. Refresh with drops of essential oils every few weeks!
Create your own all-purpose spray using essential oils.
An empty spray bottle, a few teaspoons of dish soap, and several drops of your favorite essential oils are all you need to create an effective all-purpose spray cleaner. Tackle your counters, your sink, and even the shelves in your fridge using your cleaner.
Again, we love citrus oils for the kitchen, but lavender and rosemary create a wonderful and uplifting scent for a household all-purpose spray cleaner.
Give your bathroom a once over.
Like the kitchen, we like to tackle the bathrooms in the spring, too. Here at Sha-Faun Enterprises, we use the spring as an opportunity to empty the bathroom cabinets and drawers. We toss old toothbrushes, empty toothpaste tubes, and give our drawers and cabinets a thorough cleaning.
Bathrooms have strong odors. We enjoy using strong scents in the bathroom to tackle those strong odors. Try making a homemade window cleaner using a spray bottle and:
When making homemade cleaning products, we recommend using distilled water. Tap water tends to have minerals and salts that can cause your cleaner to be less effective or leave streaks behind.
Tackle Your Bedrooms Last:
Once you've cleaned and organized your kitchen and bathrooms, it's time to work on the bedrooms.
Here's your chance to get rid of clothes you don't wear anymore or get clothes out of your kids' drawers. Use your all-purpose spray to freshen up the toys your kids have been playing with all winter.
When you strip your beds, we recommend using a linen spray to freshen up your mattress and even your curtains.
Combine distilled water, a splash of rubbing alcohol, and your favorite Young Living essential oils into a spray bottle for a refreshing linen spray. We love lavender for the bedroom as it can help promote feelings of calm and relaxation.
Don't try and do it all at once.
Spring cleaning shouldn't be a marathon. You've spent all year using and living in your home. Trying to get it all done in one weekend isn't reasonable or fun. Take your time and go from room to room. Get your family involved so everyone can enjoy making the house fresh for spring!
