Parents across the country are getting their kids ready for summer camp. Whether your child will be at day camp or overnight camp, you can consider making their summer a bit more enjoyable by packing a few essential oil related products in their bags and trunks.
My kids are heading to camp this summer, and I am doing my part to help them stay out of the infirmary and on the playing fields during the daytime, as well as enjoying the long, relaxing evenings. Here are the Young Living essential oil products that I will be sending along with them:
Thieves® Waterless Hand Purifier is an all-natural hand purifier designed to cleanse the hands and promote good hygiene.
Thieves® Spray is ideal for use on door handles, toilet seats, and any surface that needs cleansing to protect from dust, mold, and undesirable microorganisms. This small bottle is perfect for travel, keeping in a backpack, or storing with other toiletry items.
Thieves® Foaming Hand Soap will cleanse and condition the skin with the therapeutic-grade essential oil blend Thieves, pure lemon and orange essential oils, aloe, Ginkgo biloba, and vitamin E.
If you want to stick with the popular Thieves line of products, you can also consider the Thieves bar soap, mouthwash, toothpaste, wipes, and dental floss too.
Spending a lot of time in the pool can be tough on hair. (Yes, even for the boys.) The plant-based, safe and environmentally responsible, Copaiba Vanilla Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner provide a rich hydrating cleanse.
Spending a lot of time in the sun can mean stress on the skin. The LavaDerm Cooling Mist has gentle skin-soothing ingredients including lavender essential oil aloe vera. Just spray it directly onto the affected area and repeat every 10-15 minutes as needed.
Breathe Again™ essential oil roll-on is a proprietary blend of oils specially formulated to support respiratory health. Breathe Again contains four powerful eucalyptus oils: Eucalyptus staigeriana, Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus radiata, and Young Living’s original Ecuador single, Eucalyptus blue. Eucalyptus oils contain high amounts of cineole, which has been studied for its potential to support healthy lung function. The essential oils peppermint, myrtle, and copaiba also play an integral part in this blend.
Deep Relief essential oil roll-on is a Young Living-exclusive blend of pure essential oils formulated to use for massage after intense physical activity. Deep Relief Roll-On has an invigorating and energizing scent, and offers a convenient method of application for forehead, temples, and neck anytime, anywhere it’s needed. Peppermint, Wintergreen, Copaiba, Helichrysum, Dorado Azul, and other essential oils each play an integral role in this blend. My son loves Deep Relief and has asked to make sure that I pack it for him!
When I was a kid at overnight camp, sometimes I had difficulty settling down at the end of the day, which led to several restless nights. My son has a similar tendency, so I am arming him with Tranquil roll on to help him calm and relax both his body and mind. Tranquil roll-on is a proprietary blend of lavender, cedarwood and roman chamomile essential oils used for added relaxation. Another option is the Stress Away roll-on, a blend of vanilla, lime, copaiba, and other pure essential oils that helps to relieve stress, encourage relaxation, and reduce nervous tension. I absolutely love the scent of Stress Away! And yet another oil to consider is Sleepylze, which is said to provide a peaceful aromatic environment for bedtime. It is important to note, however, that Stress Away is not intended for children six years of age or younger.
Summer is almost here. Are you ready? What products are you packing for your happy camper?
