Updated Liquid Calm Recipe with Young Living Oils
While on a brand trip a couple weeks ago, my friend Christine was gushing about an oil combination she uses regularly to help keep her calm and relieve her occasional anxiousness. I use essential oils for that myself, having my own concoction of oils and other products to aid in keeping me calm, but I wanted to thoroughly investigate and try her recommendation to see if it helped me, too. It did!
I was shocked and amazed. I’ve always used Young Livings pre-made blend Stress Away™ for occurrences like this (especially since it was one of the first Young Living essential oils I’d ever tried), but this Liquid Calm recipe was wonderfully soothing and so very calming. Perfect for those unexpected times of distress!
How is This Recipe Different than Others?
The original version of the liquid calm recipe calls for Patchouli, which I did NOT have on hand at the time, and didn’t include things that calm/strengthen me regularly, like Joy™, Release™, Cedarwood, and Grapefruit. This lead me to breaking out a small mixing bowl with a q-tip and hitting my large collection of Young Living essential oils playing chemist until I created something I’m quite proud of, something I can use as a go-to when the everyday stresses of life begin to bog me down.
I knew I’d come up with a winning concoction when I tested it right out of my mixing bowl. After laying the q-tip down, I began screwing all the oil tops back on as my husband walked in the door from work. He commented how it smelt “oily” in here, wanted to know what I was up to, and I explained as I screwed the last top on tight.
I showed him the bottle, and before he finished sniffing, I realized how calm I felt right then – it was THAT fast, maybe a couple of minutes? I didn’t expect it to be, but it WAS!
Introducing my new, updated recipe for Liquid Calm, stored in 5ml bottle instead of a 15ml bottle with roller fitment:
How to Make Liquid Calm
- 25 drops Lavender
- 15 drops Valor®
- 10 drops Vetiver
- 10 drops Grapefruit
- 10 drops Joy™
- 5 drops Release™
- 5 drops Cedarwood
- Fill with carrier oil

I like how easy this liquid calm recipe is to use. If I’m feeling occasional stress, I grab my bottle, roll it on, and feel calmer and more at peace within minutes. I also used one of my old 5ml bottles for this. It was super easy to get the label off, too – I just ran what was left of the label under hot water, scrubbing with my nail until it came off clean. After wiping, the bottle was good as new, ready to use!

Liquid Calm Recipe
- Using a brand new or emptied glass oil bottle, start dropping the oil one-by-one into it.
- Most of the oils will drop just fine directly from the bottle, but you will need a dropper to use Vetiver, as it is really thick.
- Once all the oils have been added, add drops of a carrier oil like V-6 into the bottle until practically full.
- Secure the roller fitment on top, placing the top on it to snap it into place.
- (If you’re re-using an old Young Living bottle, make sure it has the letters “Sb” on the bottom, so that the fitment can be used. Only “Sb” bottles are designed to fit the fitments.)
- Once secured with the fitment top and cap on, shake the mixture gently to combine all the oils.
- I then wrote the name in permanent marker and cut it to fit, placing it onto the washi tape.
- I secured the label (and also made it waterproof) by using scotch tape over top.
- Keep this and all oils stored tightly in a cool, dry, dark place and away from the heat or sun.
