Do Essential Oils Stain


Do essential oils stain?

From aromatherapy to workout recovery, you can use essential oils in some pretty cool waysGeranium reduces the appearance of fine lines, Lemon essential oil is perfect in DIY garbage disposal freshenersLavender oil promotes feelings of calm and relaxation, and our VitalityTM essential oils spice up your cooking. Pure essential oils are an important part of any routine, whether you’re talking skin care, cleaning, relaxation, or overall wellness. To help ensure your day is free of oil-related mishaps, we’re answering your questions about whether essential oils stain clothes and other fabrics. 

Blue Tansy essential oil

Q: Do essential oils stain? 

A: Other than the exceptions listed below, pure essential oils do not stain. Because they are volatile, the oil evaporates without leaving a grease stain on clothes or fabrics like you could get from a drop of carrier oil. Young Living’s pure essential oils don’t leave a greasy mark. 

Q: Which essential oils stain? 

A: Though pure essential oils don’t leave an oily spot, a handful of oils can leave a stain due to thenaturally occurring darker or yellowish coloring from the original botanicals. So be careful using these essential oils around your favorite white layering tee or Grandma’s heirloom linens.

Oils that stain due to a natural dark color: 

Oils that stain due to a natural yellow color*:

Myrrh essential oil

*The yellowish color fades, but you’ll still want to avoid using it around your whites. 

Q: How can these essential oils stain? 

A: Applying any of these oils directly on white fabric will leave a stain—which is okay if you’re trying a new tie-dye project. If tinting your t-shirt isn’t the plan, avoid doing the following with these oils:

  • Applying directly to the skin and then putting on clothes before the oil absorbs 
  • Adding to your laundry
  • Spilling on clothes or other fabrics

Q: How can I use the darker-colored oils? 

A: While it’s true that these essential oils have potential to stain, their bottles are full of powerful benefits. If used with care, you—not your clothes—will be golden! Here are a few ways you can use darker-colored oils:

Tangerine essential oil
  • Add a drop of Blue Tansy to your moisturizer to dilute its color and help reduce the appearance of blemishes.
  • Diffuse Jasmine to fill your home with a rich, sultry aroma.
  • Combine German Chamomile with our V-6TM Vegetable Oil Complex to enhance your massage.
  • Make a set of DIY bathtub crayons that double as soap.

FYI, these oils may stain your diffuser depending on the oil and the amount you use. Be sure to clean your diffuser after each use; check out this post for some helpful tips!

Q: Can I use essential oils as a stain remover? 

A: You’re in luck! We have a recipe for a stain remover stick made with Lemon essential oil and Thieves® Laundry soap. You can also use essential oils, and a few other natural ingredients, to clean up after your pets

BTW, some of your favorite blends include darker oils that could stain, like Peace & Calming® and Valor®. Remember to read the labels before adding them to your laundry!

Snuggle Up With Cinnamon Bark

Snuggle up with Cinnamon Bark

Opening a bottle of Cinnamon Bark essential oil might be the best form of time travel we know. The warm aroma immediately transports you to a night sipping hot cider by the light of a bonfire or a bright Christmas morning, eating a cinnamon roll fresh from the oven.

We all have our own history that’s stirred up by the sweet scent of cinnamon, but this sought-after spice has an interesting story of its own—as well as uses that go far beyond baked goods!Cinnamon Bark essential oil

1. It comes from a tree.

Just in case the “bark” part of the name didn’t give it away, all cinnamon—not just our oil—comes from the bark of a tree! Cinnamon trees are in the genus Cinnamomum. Our Cinnamon Bark oil comes from Cinnamomun zeylanicum, a tropical evergreen native to Sri Lanka.

2. And it’s different from the cinnamon in your spice rack.

Here’s where Cinnamon Bark essential oil differs from the cinnamon sticks in your cider or ground cinnamon in your french toast. Cinnamon Bark oil is distilled from the outer bark of the cinnamon tree. The cinnamon you buy in the spice section at the grocery store is made from the inner bark, which is harvested in rolls and then dried out.

3. But it still tastes incredible.

It’s no secret that cinnamon is delicious. Cinnamon Bark Vitality™ essential oil is labeled for internal use, so it’s just the thing to add to your favorite recipes!

Cinnamon Bark Vitality is stronger than the ground cinnamon you may be used to, so start with just a little bit of oil in your recipe. We recommend the toothpick method: Dip the end of a wooden toothpick into your bottle of oil, and then swirl the toothpick through your wet ingredients. Get more tips for cooking with essential oils here!

YL Tip

Try Cinnamon Bark Vitality in these recipes:

4. It’s great for topical application—but remember to dilute.

Cinnamon Bark is a “hot” oil, which means it causes a warming sensation on your skin. That’s important to remember when you use this oil topically, because you don’t want to ruin a should-be-cozy moment with a negative skin reaction! We recommend diluting Cinnamon Bark oil 1:1 with a carrier oil and doing a patch test before you dive in to topical use.

v 6 vegetable oil complex

YL Tip

Here are some of our favorite topical Cinnamon Bark oil usage tips so that you can get the most out of its warming properties:

  • Mix three drops of Cinnamon Bark oil with some V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex, and use it for a warming foot massage. Then put on a pair of warm socks to keep your feet cozy and moisturized! We recommend completing the picture with a nice book, a cozy fireplace, and a warm mug of herbal tea—but we’ll leave those details up to you!
  • Treat yourself to a warming scalp massage with four drops of Cinnamon Bark and a dime-sized amount of your favorite hair-loving carrier oil. Our favorite for this use is coconut oil. Using your fingers, massage the sweetly scented blend into your scalp for several minutes. Then wash and dry your hair as usual.
  • Give tired muscles and joints some TLC—Treatment Laced with Cinnamon. Add a few drops of Cinnamon Bark oil to your favorite massage oil. Then relax and let the aroma wrap you up in comfort.

5. And it makes your house smell good enough to eat.

There’s a reason cinnamon is often an ingredient in potpourris and air fresheners. Skip the store-bought solutions and go straight to the source with Cinnamon Bark essential oil—or any of the Young Living blends it lends its spicy-sweet scent to, like Thieves® essential oil blend.

YL Tip

Refresh your home with these fresh-baked ideas:

  • Make a room spray by filling a spray bottle with 3 ounces of water and four drops of Thieves essential oil blend, which features Cinnamon Bark as a main ingredient.
  • Use Thieves Household Cleaner on everything from doorknobs to bathtubs. Read our blog post for tips on this amazing all-purpose cleaner.
  • Diffuse this cozy blend to get rid of musty odors and fill your home with an inviting fragrance.

MultiGreens- My Favorite Supplement

70D71A51-9566-4200-A0D5-F8435C167AB3

➕MultiGreens:
FREE with your 300pv ER or Regular Order
OMG. Hands down one of my top fave supplements… I can’t even handle it is free this month because I already order this monthly. If you are not on the MultiGreens train – you are missing OUT for real. OK so you want to get your read on for a hot second… because I’ve got a lot to say on this one.
MultiGreens is a chlorophyll formula supplement that was created to boost vitality by working with glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems. MultiGreens is made with spirulina, alfalfa sprouts, barley grass, bee pollen, eleuthero, Pacific Kelp, and our essential oils. Y’all eating that stuff daily? Didn’t think so…..
It is a natural, sustainable energy source with bioactive sea vegetables that increase vitality, nutrient dense bee pollen, essential oils to increase assimilation, and an excellant source of choline which is critical for energy production.
Bee pollen is loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, and B vitamins. And that ELeuthero Root….amazing stuff – it boosts energy and reduces stress! (Double win!) It also strengthens lymphocyte function which strengthens the immune system.
But what about those hormones and that thyroid which balance is crucial for maintaining good energy levels? Pacific Kelp is in there for just that! Pacific kelp supports thyroid function and helps to keep our hormones balanced and in check!
And our oils….infused with Rosemary (supports our endocrine system), Lemon (immune support), Lemongrass (supports the Digestive system), and Melissa (energizes the body and fights against natural occurring inflammation)….and check out the price point on Melissa…yeah…pretty sweet that we get to consume that oil in this supplement.
After taking this supplement I have noticed a HUGE improvement with my energy levels. To get a little more bang for my buck I take it with a shot of Ningxia and sometimes sneak in a Super B tablet! (I like to call that Trio the “Energizer Bunny”).

Aromatically, Wintergreen stimulates and increases awareness on all levels of the sensory system so this is a good one to diffuse if you have never tried it.

Essential Oil Tips

7 essential oil tips for weight management

Managing your weight can be a challenge; we know there are long-term health benefits to eating well and moving our bodies—no matter what the scale may say—but it can be discouraging if you’re working hard and not seeing results. Infuse your weight-management plan with these essential oil tips to boost your efforts.

1. Use Grapefruit Vitality™ essential oilGrapefruit Vitality Essential Oil - Young Living

If you’re looking for the right essential oil for weight management, Grapefruit Vitality should be at the top of your list. Grapefruit Vitality essential oil supports weight management when used in conjunction with healthy eating and regular exercise, has cleansing properties, and can support your lymphatic system!* Try a drop or two in your water each morning or put 2 drops in a veggie capsule to get Grapefruit Vitality’s support.

2. Catch some ZZZs

Did you know that a lack of proper sleep can lead to weight gain? Make sure you’re getting the rest you need by creating a snooze-worthy environment for shut-eye. Diffuse 3 drops of Lavender essential oil and 2 drops of Cedarwood essential oil before tucking in for the night, and check out our post for more helpful tips on getting a better night’s sleep.

3. Add some Slique®

Young Living’s Slique system is formulated to promote healthy weight management.* Slique® CitraSlim™ includes a proprietary essential oil blend for weight management, which some studies suggest may help support the body in burning excess fat when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise. The proprietary blend may also support the release of free fatty acids, which may help break down fat.* ** Young Living’s Slique product line also includes Slique Essence, Slique Shake, Slique Tea, Slique Bars, and Slique Gum—a whole Slique System to support you in your weight-management goals!

4. Stay hydrated

Another way to use Young Living essential oils for weight management is by boosting your water intake. A drop of your favorite Vitality essential oil can motivate you to drink more water throughout the day. Find your favorite, like Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, or Citrus Fresh™ Vitality essential oils, or create a combination that inspires you to take more sips of H2O all day long.

5. Beat your cravings

When it’s difficult to resist something sweet or salty, opt for a healthful alternative to candy bars and potato chips. Try these essential oil-infused chocolate energy balls or apple chips, or seek out recipes to swap healthy ingredients into not-so-healthy recipes.

6. Get up and move

One of the best tips for weight management is to keep moving. You don’t need to be a gym rat, but it’s critical to change up a sedentary lifestyle. Opt for stairs instead of the elevator, park on the far end of the parking lot, and take time to stretch throughout the day. If you’re having trouble with motivation, try diffusing Citrus Fresh or Peppermint essential oil to help add a little pep to your step. Using essential oils to help your weight management can often be about finding ones with energizing aromas!

7. Start your day rightBest overnight chia bowl recipe with essential oils

Kick-start your metabolism with a healthy breakfast!

Beginning your morning with a conscious, healthy decision sets the stage for continued positive choices all day long. Try starting with an overnight chia bowl!
