Fabulous 4th Survival Guide

The 4th of July is fast approaching and we want to be sure you’re ready to enjoy all of the patriotic celebrations this holiday has to offer. From keeping your furry friends calm to helping you indulge in all of the best foods, we’ve got you covered with these must-have, Young Living necessities! 


First, outdoor summertime events often have uninvited guests of the flying and six-legged variety. Yuck. But bugs and nasty bites won’t keep you from enjoying the great outdoors this year if Young Living’s Insect Repellent is invited to the party too! Safely repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas all day long with this 100% naturally-derived, plant-based option. This way you can ditch the chemicals and feel confident in the ingredients you’re applying on your family’s skin. For easy, on-the-go application, grab a pack of Young Living’s Insect Repellent Wipes and never worry about bugs again!

While you’re out enjoying that stellar fireworks display, we’re willing to bet you may have a furry friend or two at home who are definitely NOT enjoying the show. Help calm those nerves by diffusing essential oils, applying a drop or two to their collar, or both! T-Away is one of Young Living’s most popular blends for pets to promote a calming and peaceful environment while encouraging relaxation and emotional balance. Made with Trauma Life, Harmony, and Peace & Calming essential oils, this citrusy blend is sure to support your pets during times of stress and worry. Consider applying a calming blend like Peace & Calming or Stress Away for your kiddos who struggle with the noises from fireworks as well!


Against all of our best efforts to protect our skin from the sun (with Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen of course), there’s just sometimes you manage to catch a bit too much of those glorious summer rays. We always recommend keeping a bottle of Young Living’s LavaDerm After-Sun Spray on hand to help relieve pain from sunburns and even minor cuts, scrapes, bruises, and bites. And as an added bonus, it is super moisturizing to help prevent peeling!


We may be speaking for ourselves here, but the 4th of July and eating too many delicious foods always seem to go hand in hand. If you’re like us, be sure to have your DiGize essential oil blend at the ready just in case your tummy isn’t super happy with your holiday indulgence. A few drops applied to your stomach in a clockwise motion and you’ll be back in the game – maybe even ready for another treat or two! 


Whether you are hosting the summer picnic or attending one down the block, be sure to impress all the guests with some delicious Lavender Lemonade. Simply add a few drops of Lavender Vitality essential oil to your favorite pitcher of lemonade and enjoy the super refreshing tastes of summer in a cup. We promise this drink is sure to be a crowd-pleasing favorite! 


And just like any other day of the year for us, the perfect diffuser blend is totally a must. Take your diffuser out to the patio and throw in our favorite Red, White, and Bliss diffuser blend to enjoy the scents of summer all while excluding those uninvited insects! 


Red, White, and Bliss

  • 2 drops Citronella
  • 2 drops Lemon
  • 2 drops Lavender 
  • 2 drops Rosemary 


We know the 4th of July is a day many of us look forward to every summer and we hope these simple tips help make your celebrations that much more enjoyable. No matter the occasion, it’s always a good idea to bring your Young Living products along, especially when you’re celebrating freedoms gathering with good food and fellowship!
