I never dreamt I’d be writing a blog on how to DIY Purification, but yesterday I had a bit of a shock. I noticed in virtual office that Purification was no longer available in a 15 mL size and only a 5 mL was available. And it had a limit on it. Eeek!! Young Living’s Purification blend is kinda famous. We use Purification when our ears and throats feel yucky, for digesting odors of all kinds, skin support and bugs hate it too, so this got my attention.
A DIY version had to be created, cuz…order restrictions! I searched in my Oil groups and learned that an ingredient had gone out of stock due to fires. I can’t begin to tell you how sad that made me feel… We have to take care of the Earth! But I’ve learned a few things, being part of Young Living. Being sad is fine, but don’t stay there, right? 🙂
One thing my leaders have taught me is there’s no need to panic. There are lots of oils we can use for whatever we need. Just because we have used purification for X, Y, Z, in the past doesn’t mean it’s the only thing we can use for X, Y, Z. In fact, because it’s a blend we will probably be able to get the benefits we’re looking for with a single oil. 🙂
Another thing I’ve learned in my time with Young Living is that they do not ever compromise on quality. So, that’s a huge bonus!!!
Young Living is also incredibly resourceful. Not to be braggadocious but we do have partners all over the world. So when we have a quality replacement you best believe we’ll be on it! This is something that people looking for the right essential oil company may want to consider. Young Living has invested decades building relationships with people and farms around the world.
Additionally, they have made changes in how orders are being fulfilled to make the most of what we have. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Young Living for putting quality products and our health as their number one priority rather than profit.
So, with that being said I was curious how I could make my own Purification blend! And silly me, I thought it was going to be so easy. 😂 My first six or seven tries I realized it was not gonna be as easy as I thought…
Getting it to smell ‘right’ from the bottle was pretty easy. The trickier part was getting it to small ‘right’ when it was diffused. I kept playing with it and I had my kids get in on it. Then I got more serious and started to write the recipes down. My 17 year old helped by using his amazing math skills with percents and decimals as I adjusted my recipes. Hee hee! My 14 & 11 year olds are gifted sniffers, lol, so I had them smell it from my hand, the bottle, etc. They were such great helpers!
This morning I dug up an old product guide and used that to help me come up with what I think is a very, very close version of Purification.
The recipe: DIY Purification
Purification is one of 11 masterfully created oils included (with a diffuser!) in the starter kit! Lucky for us, the Young Living starter kit is an amazing value at $160.
