The Young Living community is full of wellness experts from all disciplines. Learn how yoga instructor Tracy Griffiths incorporates Young Living essential oils into her practice in this special guest blog!
When you wake up some mornings, do you ever wonder, “I just woke up; why do I feel so tired?” or, “How am I going to muster the get-up-and-go I need for the day?” Let me share a few simple, yet powerful, Aroma Yoga® exercises that may help stoke your inner fire and energize your body and mind so you can start your day with an extra boost!
The essential oils I recommend for these exercises are Young Living’s Bergamot (for its uplifting and invigorating scent) mixed with Eucalyptus Radiata (for its stimulating and refreshing fragrance). Combining these essential oils with the following movements may foster that spark you need to start your day energized.
Each day that you practice, you can set a new intention or stay with one until you see it become manifest. I also suggest putting three to four drops of each essential oil used above in your diffuser to continue anchoring your olfactory experience throughout the day.

If you missed this year’s International Grand Convention, you missed out on the unveiling of some exciting products! Among these products was the convention oil blend that has been reformulated for a more optimized effect: Believe™.
The new Believe blend has been updated to add a special touch of Young Living exclusivity and efficacy by adding oils that are grown, harvested, and distilled on Young Living farms. Because of the cultivation, experience, and care of our Seed to Seal® process practiced on these farms, the purity of these oils remains unaltered.
Also with the new formula, Gary Young wanted to include the benefits of Idaho blue spruce and Ecuadorian ylang ylang (one of the convention Exotic Oils, but we’ll touch on that in another blog). With the addition of these two oils and with the current Idaho balsam fir found in the blend, the reformulated Believe now has three oils that are harvested on the Young Living farms in Idaho and Ecuador.
Created to help you overcome occasional feelings of despair and move to a higher level of awareness, Believe also contains frankincense essential oil to encourage feelings of strength and faith. With the other complementary oils that round out this blend—bergamot, coriander, and geranium—this combination of oils may help assist you as you look to unlock your true, unlimited potential.*
You may use Believe in many ways. Whether you diffuse a little before a big date or rub some behind your ears to get you through a job interview, Believe will get you in the right frame of mind to believe in yourself.
Take this time to share what you are looking forward to most when using the newly reformulated Believe. Three lucky commenters will be randomly selected to receive a bottle of this inspiring blend!
