SLIP INTO SUMMER with Young Living
SAFE SUMMER SOLUTIONS Did you know that ditching toxic products can be one of the most life-altering choices you will ever make? For real. Toxins wreak havoc on our bodies in so many ways. We are constantly applying them on our skin and releasing them into our environment, and most of us do not even realize it. Nor do we realize the profound impact they have on our health. We are here to spread the word because some of the popular products we use in the summertime are some of the worst offenders. Did you know that most sunscreens and insect repellents sold on shelves are laced with toxins, which get absorbed directly through the skin & head straight to your bloodstream?
Oxybenzone, octinoxate, homosalate, titanium dioxide & benzophenone. These chemicals contribute to hormone disruption, organ toxicity, contact allergies, reproductive toxicity, DNA damage and cancers. YIKES! Not only are they toxic to humans, they are toxic to our reefs and water friends. In fact, some of the sunscreens sold on our store shelves are banned from use in other countries. But here is our chance to know better and do better. We can make a difference, both for ourselves and for the environment. So do not fret, we have tons of solutions! Â So sit back and soak it all

INSECT REPELLENT Most of us know how toxic DEET can be to our body, especially to our nervous system. But, if you don't, then please educate yourself before applying that beloved OFF bug spray this summer season. Good news, there is a way better alternative, that is just as effective. Young Living Insect Repellent has been clinically proven to be just as effective as DEET and is 100% plant-based. This is formulated as a liquid to extend the effectiveness and provide the maximum amount of protection. It is also super concentrated, so I pop it in a rollerbottle (half coconut oil + half insect repellent) and then roll a couple swipes over any areas of exposed skin. Pro-tip: A little goes a long way, it only takes a few drops to cover a large area! Wholesale :: $27 | Retail :: $35.53
INSECT REPELLENT wipes These wipes are effective and extremely easy to use, without worrying about spills or messes. They’re packaged for on-the-go use, so you’ll be ready to beat bugs no matter when adventure strikes! These wipes use Young Living’s Insect Repellent formula & the fabric itself is made of 100 percent compostable & biodegradable material. I literally use ONE wipe for my entire family! Just as the liquid repellent, a little goes a long way. 12 wipes Wholesale :: $27 | Retail :: $35.53

3 tbsp unfractionated coconut oil 7 drops each of lavender, purification + tea tree 2 ounce glass jar Combine ingredients and store in a metal or glass jar. Apply to bug bites as needed to soothe itch & facilitate healing.
MINERAL SUNSCREEN Made with ingredients you can feel good about, Young Living’s Mineral Sunscreen Lotion provides protection against UVA/UVB rays without harsh chemical ingredients. It offers broad-spectrum SPF 10 or SPF 50 protection using naturally derived plant & mineral-based ingredients, including non-nano zinc oxide—a physical UV blocker. The lightweight formula goes on smooth & stays water & sweat-resistant for 80 minutes. Not only that, but you can use it as a moisturizer! If I am heading outside, I substitute my normal moisturizing routine with this beauty. Too thick? Split it with a moisturizer, coconut oil or sweet almond oil until you reach the desired consistency. Wholesale :: $29.75 | Retail :: $39.14
DIY SUNSCREEN SPRAY 2 tablespoon raspberry seed carrier oil 2 tablespoons of carrot seed CARRIER oil 1 teaspoon of almond oil 10 drops carrot seed essential oil distilled water 2 ounce glass spray bottle Add the carrier & carrot seed oil to the spray bottle and fill the remainder with water. Shake well before each use. Spray liberally on skin before sun exposure for approximately 45 SPF protection. Reapply as needed. This is not waterproof or sweatproof, but is a great option to throw in your bag for touch-ups!
