Sweet, sweet summertime is finally upon us and we’re sure here for it after these last few months of being cooped up! It’s time for pool parties (social distance style of course), sunshine, bonfires, fireflies, and everything slow + easy that summer has to offer. Be prepared for anything that comes your way with a few of our favorite summertime essentials so you can get the most out of your rest and relaxation!
You simply cannot have summertime without sunscreen and we have access to the very best! Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion is SPF 50 and the healthiest option for skin protection. 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 to enjoy a gorgeous day outdoors!
Don’t let bugs and nasty bites keep you from enjoying your summer fun. Just grab a bottle of Young Living’s Insect Repellent and safely repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas all summer long! Made from 100% naturally-derived, plant-based ingredients, 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, you can even grab a pack of Young Living’s Insect Repellent wipes. Convenient and effective is a win-win in our book!

LavaDerm After-Sun Spray:
Despite all of our best efforts to protect our skin from the sun, there always seems to be a day where we catch just a bit too much of that sweet sunshine. That’s why we always recommend keeping a bottle of Young Living’s LavaDerm After-Sun Spray nearby to help relieve pain from sunburns and even minor cuts, scrapes, bruises, and bites. And as an added bonus, it is super moisturizing which can help prevent peeling. Yes please!
Citronella Essential Oil:
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, you can use this oil for all of your outdoor needs. Apply topically before heading outside or grab a diffuser for your porch and enjoy the long-lasting benefits of citronella for hours on end!
Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap:
Don’t let all of the summer fun distract you from washing those hands, especially right now. Give your hands the best with the sweet aroma of Young Living’s Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap. Your hands will be left feeling soft, clean, and refreshed without harsh additives found in traditional hand soaps. Grab a single bottle, a three-pack, or my favorite 32-oz refill bottle so every sink in your home will be ready to wash away!
Lavender Essential Oil:
Lavender essential oil is called the Swiss Army Knife of oils for a reason and you won’t want to find yourself without it this summer! Use this oil to help revive, refresh, and rejuvenate your skin from head to toe and be sure to carry it on the go for minor bumps, scrapes, bruises, and bites. You can even grab a bottle of Lavender Vitality and throw a few drops in your summertime lemonade. You’ll thank us later – promise!
As the weather heats up, it’s more important than ever to be sure you’re staying hydrated. Spruce up your water drinking game this summer by adding in a few drops of Young Living’s delicious Vitality oils to a glass of ice-cold H2O! We love to jazz ours up with Lemon, Lime, or Grapefruit, but you can cater to your own tastes with a variety of citrus and mint choices. For another great option, consider trying the YL Vitality Drops in either Grapefruit Bergamot or Lavender Lemon for a super convenient way to spruce up your drink!
Mascara and Savvy Lip Gloss:
With the natural glow from that glorious sunshine, you may not be needing as much makeup this summer. However, you’ll definitely want to be sure to grab a tube of Savvy Lengthening or Volumizing Mascara along with a beautiful Savvy Lip Gloss of your choice for fast, easy, minimal coverage that amplifies the look of your after-sun glow. Savvy is changing the face of the clean beauty movement and you won’t regret adding these products to your summertime toolkit!
Thieves Hand Sanitizer:
Whether you’re out at the ball field or down by the shore this summer, there isn’t always a sink nearby to wash your hands. Well have no fear because the germ-killing power of Thieves is here! Keep your hands clean and sanitized on the go with Young Living’s Waterless Hand Sanitizer, effective at killing 99.99% of germs. Whether you’re spending the day out and about or your hands are sticky from one too many smores, this all-natural sanitizer will leave your hands feeling clean and smelling divine without drying out your skin!
