Summer is here! Time to be outside enjoying the warm weather, blue skies, and longer days. With the nice weather comes the not so nice parts of Summer. Don’t make the mistake of not having your Summer Essentials ready to go!
I don’t know about you, but one thing I always dreaded in the past was buying summer essentials for my family–such as sunscreen, bug spray, and after sun products. Most over-the-counter products around here are laden with chemical toxins. We all know that we want to avoid DEET, but what about all the other junk? Growing up, our family was exposed to whatever was in the bottle without even checking the ingredients within. Now that I have began experiencing the difference in using more natural products, I have became more health conscious for my family. We still need products to protect us from the outdoor elements, so what can we use?
I was so excited that Young Living came out with their very own summer essentials line of products. Before using Young Living products, I had ventured into making our own DIY products. While we still use DIY products when we have the time, sometimes the convenience of grabbing something pre-made and ready to go when you are comes in really handy. With busy lifestyles and busy families, convenience without sacrifice is awesome! Using all natural products without chemical toxins actually allows you to enjoy the outdoors even more because you don’t have that never-ending thought of having to shower immediately to rinse off as much of the leftover product as you can. Have you actually read the bottles that you have been using to see all the ingredients and warnings about their products? It is something to think about doing.
Here are my top 3 summer essentials I think you should try:
Summer Essentials #1: Mineral Sunscreen
Made with ingredients you can feel good about, Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion provides protection against UVA and UVB rays without harsh chemical ingredients. Instead, the non-greasy sunscreen offers broad-spectrum SPF 10 protection using naturally derived plant- and mineral-based ingredients, including non-nano zinc oxide—a physical UV blocker.
The lightweight formula goes on smooth and stays water- and sweat-resistant for 80 minutes, so you can feel comfortable while you stay moving. With hypoallergenic ingredients and skin-loving essential oils—such as Helichrysum, Carrot Seed, and Sacred Frankincense—this gentle sunscreen rubs on smoothly without a white residue, so you can effortlessly add it to your time outdoors.
Summer Essentials #2: Insect Repellent
Don’t let bug bites ruin your family’s outdoor fun this summer! Young Living’s Insect Repellent is tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.
Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-greasy, non-sticky application.
So 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.
Summer Essentials #3: After-Sun Spray
|After Sun Spray
Refresh and recover from a day in the sun with Young Living’s LavaDerm After-Sun Spray. This naturally derived after-sun spray offers temporary relief from the pain and itching of minor burns, minor cuts, sunburns, scrapes, insect bites, and minor skin irritations, so your family can keep playing all day.
Using menthol from mint, this spray soothes and cools the skin, providing immediate relief from the effects of outdoor activity. Plus, its moisturizing qualities—from ingredients such as aloe, Lavender essential oil, and Helichrysum essential oil—also help prevent peeling and leave skin feeling soft and smooth instead of tacky or sticky. With a vegan-friendly formula made without alcohol, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic colorants, LavaDerm After-Sun Spray is ready for the whole family to use at the beach, on a hike, or during any outdoor playtime.

If you are interested in these Summer Essentials, this option gives you your member account and the three products mentioned earlier (with the bonus Peppermint Vitality to add a refreshing taste to your water to help keep you hydrated when you are enjoying the outdoors).
If you are an avid outdoor adventurer, this selection might work a little better for you. By getting the Basic Starter Kit, you start your Member account so you can order at a discount. You still get the three summer essential products that I discussed and this time around you also get En-R-Gee to give you an invigorating aromatic boost when you need it most to keep you going.

If you are wanting to make the most of essential oils and support your overall health, I highly encourage you to look into a Premium Starter Kit instead of the Basic Kit. They start out at $160 and include a diffuser and 11 bottles of essential oils. Check out “How to Order Essential Oils” to learn more!
