Oil of the Week: Purification

Posted by Jennifer Triassi, Yoga Instructor and Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor

Each week I showcase an essential oil, and explain how it can be used! And this week, I’ve chosen another one of my favorites: Purification!


When you invest in the Premium Starter Kit, you’ll get to try it out as it’s one of the “Everyday Oils” included in the kit! Seriously, this versatile oil is one that you will use EVERY SINGLE DAY! In fact, when I purchased my first kit, it was the oil that I ran out of first——that’s how much I used it!

Purification is an essential oil blend made up of citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, tea tree, lavandin and myrtle. When I diffuse it, I always pick up on the lemongrass first, and I love how fresh and clean it smells! I diffuse it regularly all over my house, but especially in the “fur baby quarters!”

Besides diffusing, purification can be used topically. Dilution is generally not necessary for adults. (FYI, dilution of essential oils is typically recommended for children.)

Here are some ways to use it:

  • Disinfect/freshen the air. Diffuse for 15-20 minutes to clean the air and neutralize odors. Great for pet areas and “wet dog smell.” Add 2 drops to cotton balls and place in air vents of home, car, hotel room or office.

  • Make a homemade bug repellent. Combine 1 cup water, pinch of epsom salts, 8 drops of Purification, and 8 drops of Peppermint in a spray bottle.

  • Apply to bug bites to stop itching.

  • Neutralize shoe odor. Add 2 drops of a cotton ball placed inside shoes.

  • Acne spot treatment. Apply neat (undiluted) to treat acne and promote healing.

  • Sterilize cuts and wounds. Apply directly to cuts and scrapes to prevent infection.

  • Freshen laundry. Add a few drops to washing machine laundry detergent to get rid of sour smell.

  • Deter bugs and spiders. Add a few drops to base of exterior doors to create a barrier.

  • Neutralize diaper pail odors. Add 2 drops to a cotton ball placed in bottom of pail.

I really do use this oil everyday! And I’m slightly bothered whenever I run out….

So I have a standing order for it on Essential Rewards, Young Living’s auto-ship rewards program. It offers easy monthly shipping, rewards points that can be redeemed for free products, and discount shipping rates…really a no-brainer for oilers like myself. Interested? Contact me for details!

Also, if you have any other questions, or are interested in purchasing Purification or any other essential oils or the amazing Premium Starter Kit, please contact me!


Last Friday evening, I hosted “The Essential Ladies’ Night Out,” at Willow Tree! It’s was a magical evening, including a 45-minute mellow flow class, followed by a 45-minute discussion regarding how to use Young Living Essential Oils in DIY beauty and hygiene products! I even shared some of my yummy homemade Peppermint Bark. (We’ll be sharing the recipe in December, so stay tuned….)

Did you miss it? SAVE the DATE for our next yoga and EO workshop, set for Friday, December 19th!
