4 Ways You Can Start Your Day Right This International Essential Oils Day

As we celebrate International Essential Oil Day 11 July, Young Living, the world-leader in essential oils, remembers its founder, D. Gary Young, and his pioneering work in the industry. Gary’s Great Day Protocol Collection, an empowering essential oil routine, has been a popular choice for those seeking to start their day with intention and empowerment.

Gary’s Protocol is a simple yet effective routine that incorporates essential oils into your morning routine to amplify your intentions and enhance your feelings of confidence. The late Gary Young personally put together this collection of essential oils, and it includes Valor®, Harmony, Joy, and White Angelica.

Here is a guide on how to use them:

Step 1. Apply 1 drop of Valor to your left wrist and hold it over your right wrist to promote feelings of balance, courage and self-esteem..

Step 2. Apply 1 drop of Harmony above your belly button to promote positive feelings and calmness.

Step 3. Apply 1 drop of Joy above your heart to uplift your spirits and promote feelings of happiness.

Step 4. Rub 1 drop of White Angelica in your palms and lightly brush over your head,  shoulders, and body to create a positive atmosphere and protect your energies.

“Incorporating essential oils into your morning routine can help cultivate the right mindset to manifest your goals,” said the late Gary Young. These essential oils are versatile and can bring  a new quality to our lives.
