Happy Campers

Whether you’re into good old-fashioned tent camping or the trendy glamping craze, you’ll want to equip yourself with the best of the best when it comes to must-have products to help you enjoy (and survive) your days in the great outdoors. Luckily Young Living has you covered with products straight from the nature you’ll be surrounded by, so let us help you get those packs ready for an adventure you’re sure to remember for years to come! Here are our favorite happy camper products:


Insect Repellent

“I just love being bit by bugs!” said no one ever. Avoid those nasty little critters with a simple applications of Young Living’s Insect Repellent to help you better enjoy all of your outside hours. Whether you’re spending time in the backyard or the backwoods, you can feel great knowing you have a pure, plant-based way to protect yourself and your loved ones. This chemical-free goodness is available in both a liquid and convenient wipe option great for all ages!


Mineral Sunscreen Lotion

A surefire way to ruin any camping trip is getting an awful sunburn. This can be especially common if you’re at a higher altitude or spending time near the water. Protect yourself from those damaging rays with Young Living’s 50 SPF Mineral Sunscreen Lotion. This natural sunscreen is free from harsh chemicals making it a healthy alternative for adults and kids alike. Protecting against both UVA and UVB rays, you can enjoy the outdoors worry-free with up to 80 minutes of protection and water+sweat resistance. Oh and here’s a little pro tip for you: lay your bottle in the sun for a few minutes to help soften it for a smooth application! 


LavaDerm After-Sun Spray

And just in case you still manage to get too much sun, be sure to have a bottle of LavaDerm After-Sun Spray on hand to help soothe your skin and prevent the dryness that tends to follow a sunburn. LavaDerm is also great to calm irritated skin from any accidental contact with the local flora or relieve itching from bites and minor scrapes. 


Pillow Spray

While camping may be one of your favorite getaways, we all know there is no place like your own comfy bed. Falling asleep in a tent or a new place may be a bit difficult, so we suggest whipping up this DIY Pillow Spray to help you catch some zzzz’s under the stars. 

    • 2 Tablespoons Unscented Witch Hazel
    • 30 Drops Lavender EO
    • 20 Drops Stress Away EO


In a 4 oz. glass spray bottle, combine the above ingredients. Fill the remainder of the bottle with distilled water, shake well, and spritz on pillows or sleeping bags to promote a peaceful night’s rest. Not into DIY? Simply stock up on Young Living’s Seedling Linen Spray to sleep like an actual baby!


Thieves Wipes

Life is messy, especially when you’re camping. Be sure to have a few packs of Thieves Wipes on hand to clean up all of your surfaces so they are both mess and germ-free. We also love the Seedlings Baby Wipes for sticky s’more fingers, dirty faces, and a ‘camping shower’ at the end of the day!  


NingXia Red

Getting a full dose of your daily antioxidants can be tricky when you’re out and about adventuring, but packing NingXia Red makes it super easy. Grab a box of the individual 2oz packets and have your daily superfruits at the tip of your fingers for a full day of outdoor energy!


Deep Relief Roll-On

Sleeping on the ground and hauling all of your camping gear into the woods can be super trying on your body. Be sure you have a Deep Relief Roll-On handy for easy application when you’re on the go to help soothe those sore muscles. More time and ache-free adventuring = double win! 


Citronella Essential Oil

Ditch those stinky, chemical-filled candles for a bottle of Citronella essential oil instead. Just sprinkle a few drops on and around your tent and camping area to help keep any unwanted insects at bay! 


Itch Stick

And just in case those pesky creatures still manage to join your camping party, we love making this DIY itch stick to help soothe and comfort any bites or stings. Check out this simple recipe:

    • 1 teaspoon shea butter
    • 1 teaspoon beeswax
    • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
    • 10 drops Tea Tree
    • 10 drops Lavender
    • 10 drops Peppermint


Over low heat, melt the solid ingredients together. Once melted and slightly cooled, add in essential oils and stir to combine. Pour into lip balm tubes, let cool, and carry with you for on-the-go soothing relief.


If you have a camping trip ahead of you this summer, be sure to stock up on these camping essentials to help you get the most out of your adventure!
