Young Living's™ Melrose™ Essential Oil Blend: Benefits & Uses
Young Living's™ Melrose™ essential oil blend is a powerful blend of essential oils known for their cleansing and skin-supporting properties. This blend contains a combination of Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree oil), Melaleuca quinquenervia (Niaouli oil), Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary oil), and Syzygium aromaticum (Clove oil). This powerful combination is renowned for its ability to support skin health and may help improve the appearance of skin, making it a valuable addition to your skincare routine. The benefits of the Melrose blend extend beyond just physical wellness; they also encompass emotional well-being. It's also a favorite in my dog and horse first aid kit, and we'll explore why!

Let's take a deeper look into the four different essential oils that make up Young Living's™ Melrose™ oil. Each of these essential oils brings its own unique benefits to the blend, working together to create a powerful and versatile oil that may support skin health. From the cleansing properties of Tea Tree oil to the stimulating aroma of Rosemary oil, let's explore the key aspects of each oil in the Melrose blend.

  • Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia): Known for its powerful cleansing properties, Tea Tree oil is commonly used in skincare for its ability to support clear, healthy skin. By the way, tea tree oil is one of my go-to oils for horses and dogs. If you're interested in learning more about using tea tree oil with horses, check out my blog post HERE.

  • Melaleuca quinquenervia: This essential oil is also known as Niaouli oil. It is prized for its skin-supporting properties and is often used to improve the appearance of blemishes and promote skin rejuvenation. 
  • Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis): Rosemary oil, another key component of the Melrose™ blend, contains alpha pinene, a natural compound known for its skin-supporting properties. Alpha-pinene has been studied for anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it a good choice for skin health. This makes Rosemary oil a valuable addition to the Melrose™ blend, contributing to its overall benefits for healthy skin.
  • Clove Oil (Syzygium aromaticum): Clove oil may contain antioxidant properties. It can give a natural boost to areas of concern and help promote overall skin health.
Benefits of Melrose™ Essential Oil Blend

The Melrose™ blend offers a range of emotional benefits, in addition to its physical advantages. Tea Tree oil, known for its cleansing properties, can also promote feelings of clarity and purity, aiding in the cleansing of negative emotions and fostering a sense of renewal. Niaouli oil is uplifting and revitalizing, providing emotional balance and a sense of refreshment. Rosemary oil, besides its cognitive benefits of promoting mental clarity and alertness, is also invigorating and can help reduce feelings of tension. Clove oil is comforting and grounding, supporting emotional balance and stability. Together, these oils create a blend that not only supports physical health but also provides a holistic approach to emotional well-being, helping uplift the mood, reduce tension, and promote overall wellness.

To unwind after a busy day, I often create a soothing foot soak using Melrose™ oil. I simply add a few drops of Melrose™ to a tablespoon of Epsom salts, then dissolve the mixture in a basin of warm water. As I soak my feet, the calming aroma helps me relax and find balance, especially after a long day spent at the barn.

Uses of Melrose™ Essential Oil Blend

  1. Skin Care: Melrose's powerful blend of melaleuca oils make it ideal for maintaining healthy-looking skin and becoming part of your daily personal care routine. Part of my daily routine is to utilize its cleansing properties by mixing a drop of Melrose™ oil with several drops of jojoba oil, one of my favorite carrier oils. I then apply this blend topically to areas with blemishes or minor skin imperfections, which helps reduce their appearance. You can also simply boost diy beauty and skin care recipes by adding Melrose™ to those recipes. 
  2. Aromatherapy: Diffuse Melrose™ to enjoy its refreshing aromatic and energizing scent and to help clear negative emotions. Its energizing aromas can uplift your mood and promote feelings of positivity. Diffuse melrose as a natural air freshener. You can even add several drops of Melrose™ blend to your laundry for an extra-clean boost. 
  3. Immune Support: Melrose™ can be used to support healthy immune systems. Add a few drops to a carrier oil and apply to the chest, back of the neck, or bottoms of the feet for a natural immune boost.
  4. DIY cleaners: Incorporate Melrose™ into your DIY claning products for a natural boost in cleaning power and aroma. For easy recipes, including homemade cleaners, visit my dedicated blog, HERE.
  5. For dogs: I like to use Melrose™ blend with my dogs for skin health and for help in deterring unwanted pests. I dilute Melrose™ with a carrier oil like olive oil and apply topically to help with skin challenges and outdoor annoyances. An easy way to have it at the ready is to make a roller ball by adding 5 drops to a 10 ml roller bottle and filling up with a carrier oil. Then you can roll it on your palms or fingertips to apply to areas of concern. Another option is to make a spray to spritz areas that need support by adding 10 drops to a 2-ounce spray bottle and filling it halfway with water and halfway with alcohol-free witch hazel. Witch hazel is a natural astringent that can help cleanse and soothe the skin.
  6. For horses: I always have a bottle of Melrose™ in my first aid kit as Melrose™ oil can be beneficial for horses with skin issues and be a soothing blend for skin health. Minor irritations or scrapes present an opportunity to apply diluted Melrose™. One of my favorite practical uses with horses is for hoof health. Diluting Melrose™ in olive oil or another carrier oil and applying topically to the hooves can help provide a protective barrier. For a mane and tail cleansing oil, I blend 2-3 drops of Melrose™ with a tablespoon of coconut oil. After massaging the mixture into the hair, I let it sit for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. This simple treatment works wonders, especially for tackling any grime buildup.
Basic Guidelines

Due to its potent nature, Melrose™ could be considered a 'hot' oil, meaning it may cause a warming or tingling sensation when applied to the skin. To ensure safe usage, it's important to dilute Melrose™ with a carrier oil and avoid sensitive areas and mucous membranes. If you or your animal has sensitive skin, perform a patch test before applying it to larger areas. If you notice anything that seems like allergic reactions, simply add more carrier oil to further dilute and give the body time to process the essential oil.

The Melrose™ blend is labeled for external use, and if you or your pets have a medical condition, always consult with a doctor or veterinarian trained in aromatherapy. This blog is for educational purposes only and is not meant to replace medical or veterinary care.

Contrary to popular belief, like with all essential oils, there is a shelf life. For more detailed information on storage, click HERE, but remember to keep the Melrose blend out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dark place to maintain its potency.

In conclusion, Young Living's™ Melrose™ essential oil blend is a versatile and powerful oil with numerous benefits for both skin and emotional well-being.
