I am so excited to share Stress Away with you! There is a reason why this proprietary blend has been selected as the “bonus oil” in the Premium Starter Kit. It. Is. Simply. Amazing!
I have bottles of Stress Away stashed in my diaper bag, my purse, several spots around my house, and always have a back-up bottle waiting on the shelf. When the days are crazy, the kiddos want to do everything instead of nap, you have to give a presentation in front of your boss, or are interviewing for a new job, this bottle of goodness never fails! It is a must-have for so many reasons. With an aroma that is the perfect blend of tropical and citrus, Stress Away is uniquely relaxing and comforting. With each kit I have purchased, I immediately take the stainless steel roller ball and pop it on the Stress Away. That way I can apply the blend to my wrists, temples, and neck. Goodness, you could even bathe in a tub-full on those crazy days!
You can diffuse this blend, inhale directly, or dilute with a carrier oil. Due to the citrus oil it contains, there may be possible skin sensitivity. You may want to avoid direct sunlight and UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying.
The proprietary blend of Stress Away includes:
Copaiba — Copaiba is a powerful essential oil from South America that has traditionally been used internally to aid digestion and support the body’s natural response to injury or irritation.
Lime — Lime essential oil has an invigorating and stimulating effect and is believed to be native of eastern Malaysia. The pleasant citrus aroma of lime may help mental clarity and encourage creativity. When applied to the skin, lime oil may also support healthy skin.
Cedarwood — Cedarwood has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage and has long been used as a beneficial ingredient in cosmetic preparations for oily skin.
Vanilla — This variety of vanilla is a species of the vanilla orchid that is native to Mexico and is one of the primary sources for vanilla flavoring, due to its high vanillin content.
Ocotea — Extracted from an Ecuadorian tree, ocotea has the highest level of alpha humulene of any Young Living essential oil, which is a compound that helps aid the body’s natural response to irritation and injury. Ocotea also has natural cleansing and purifying properties.
Lavender — Lavender has a fresh, sweet, floral, herbaceous aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no one should be without it. Lavender is also an adaptogen and can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances.
Here are a couple simple recipes to try:
Stress Away Roll-On

Add the 20 drops of essential oil to the roller vial. Top with fractionated coconut oil, pop on the roller top, and give it a good shake. Apply directly to wrists, neck, or chest to calm and soothe your mind and body as needed.
Stress Away Sugar Scrub
