Essential Oils 101: Purification


I don’t know why it took me so long to start using Young Living Purification essential oil blend. It was just another essential oil blend… until one day I opened the bottle and smelled the incredible scent provided by the combination of lemongrass, citronella, rosemary, tea tree, lavender, and myrtle. Light and sweet with just a touch of spicy. If I wasn’t hooked immediately by the aroma, the list of uses was enough to win me over! This oil blend is considered safe for children 2 years of age and older, but I have used it in my homemade bug spray on my infant son without any issue (and he even has sensitive skin), because I am much more comfortable using this oil blend to repel bugs away from him than using ingredients in store bought repellants on him! This oil is also considered safe to use on dogs and horses. Use with caution on cats.

Some uses for Purification blend:

  • Insect repellant
