5 Thanksgiving Essential Oils

Do things ever get tense at your holiday table?? Diffuse it!

  5 must have Thanksgiving essential oils

5 Thanksgiving essential oil blends @diyshowoff

This past year, Young Living essential oils became a big part of our family’s lifestyle and I’m so thankful that at a time when I was feeling helpless and praying for answers that I was introduced to Young Living products. We’re more health conscious —> empowered, taking charge of our health, maintaining wellness, feeling better and happier, making smarter choices when it comes to our environment and what we consume.

5 essential oils for Thanksgiving

Abundance™ is created to enhance the frequency of the harmonic magnetic energy field that surrounds us. This higher frequency creates what is called “the law of attraction,” which refers to the things we attract to ourselves. Abundance opens us to a wealth of possibilities.

Faith™ essential oil blend – This confidence-boosting blend enhances spiritual influences, promoting deeper meditation and a greater sense of spiritual awareness and connectedness.

Gathering™ helps overcome the chaotic energy that bombards our everyday life and clouds our focus, thus diverting us from the path leading to higher achievement. Gathering combines galbanum and frankincense oils from resins used by Moses for incense with sandalwood to help gather our emotional and spiritual forces so we can achieve greater unity of purpose.

Gratitude™ is a soothing blend of therapeutic-grade essential oils designed to elevate the spirit, calm emotions, and bring relief to the body while helping to foster a grateful attitude.

Harmony™ is an exquisite blend that promotes physical and emotional well-being by bringing harmonic balance to the energy centers of the body. The liberating, balancing, and calming essential oils in this blend open us to new possibilities while contributing to an overall feeling of well-being.

Do you host Thanksgiving dinner or attend as a guest? Add essential oils to your pumpkin pie recipe, apple cider and find creative ways to incorporate dietary approved (I only recommend Young Living) essential oils into other dishes as well. Add small samples to place settings. Share your supply with others as needed (with all of the good food…essential oils supportive of digestive health are great to have on hand).

Complete the ‘mood’ by swapping out chemical filled candles for essential oils with amazing health benefits. Diffuse Light the Fire (perfect for fall)…there so many options to fill your home with healthy holiday scents. Young Living essential oils are so loved and so amazing that they’re sponsoring my blog!

What I love about Young Living: The thing about buying cheap essential oils is 1. They’re usually labeled “fragrance grade only” and 2. You don’t have the support team to help educate and empower you to take charge of your own wellness. 3. There’s no reward system. 4. There’s no opportunity to build a business. Did I ever seek out to ‘sell’ essential oils? NO WAY! But once I learned more, once I experienced the benefits…I can’t help but not share.
