Happy Camper

And just like that, it’s that’s time again. You know, the time of the year when you load up the sleeping bags and camping gear before hitting the road for a great adventure. Okay, maybe you’re more of a ‘glamper’ and stay in an RV or cabin instead, but no matter which way you go you’re not going to want to be without a few Young Living essentials while you’re enjoying the great outdoors. We’ve found a few must-have items that we simply could not survive without, so here are a few of our favs that you’ll want to get on your orders ASAP!



Camping and critters kinda go hand in hand, much to our dismay. To keep them at bay, ditch those harsh citronella candles and snag a bottle of Young Living’s Citronella Essential Oil instead! Steam distilled from the leafy parts of a citronella plant, this oil is super effective at repelling those pesky pests. If you’re living that camper life, be sure to pack a diffuser to throw a few drops in or simply apply to your hair and clothes for easy, on-the-go diffusing! 


Mineral Sunscreen

You just cannot have summertime without sunscreen and luckily we have access to the very best! Since the majority of your time while camping is spent outdoors, you’re definitely going to want Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion on hand. It’s SPF 50 formula is the healthiest option for skin protection, plus it is all-natural, free of harsh chemicals, safe for kids and adults alike, and provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Apply this smooth, residue-free sunscreen on your skin and enjoy your gorgeous days while camping! 


Insect Repellent

Don’t let bugs and nasty bites keep you from enjoying your camping trip. Simply grab a bottle of Young Living’s Insect Repellent to safely repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas all summer long! Made from 100% naturally derived, plant-based ingredients, you can ditch the deet and feel confident in the ingredients you apply to your family’s skin. For easy, on-the-go applications, we suggest grabbing a package of Young Living’s Insect Repellent Wipes and never worry about bugs again!

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender Essential Oil is called the Swiss Army Knife of oils for a reason, so you won’t want to find yourself camping without this important tool! Use Lavender to help revive, refresh, and rejuvenate your skin from head to toe. This is great to apply to minor bumps, scrapes, bruises, burns, and bites. Don’t be afraid to give it a try and thank us later! 


Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer

While running water is usually in scarce supply when camping, clean and sanitized hands don’t have to be. Use Young Living’s Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer to stay clean and sanitized all weekend long! Available in multiple sizes, this is a must-have for camping adventures. For a super convenient option to help really clean dirty and grimy hands, grab a package of Thieves Hand Sanitizer Wipes too! 


Tranquil Roll-On

It’s not always easy to sleep in a new or unfamiliar place, especially if it’s on the ground in a tent! To make sure you get the best sleep possible while under the stars, be sure you have a Tranquil Roll-On near your sleeping bag. Just in case nature’s sound machine threatens to keep you up all night, Tranquil will help you relax and catch some zzzzz’s! 


We know not everyone is a huge fan of camping, but when you have the right tools to help you survive in the wilderness, you just might find you have the time of your life! No matter what you have on your packing list, be sure to unplug and enjoy the great outdoors with your friends and family. That’s a treasure that can’t be found in any shopping cart or fit in any suitcase!
