Stay Healthy Tip #3 – Take Inner Defense to stay strong


It’s been amazing to watch how many people are reaching out to Young Living right now, to order products from our Thieves Range. Even a couple of weeks ago, Young Living announced that they have been selling 700% to 1000% more than normal, which attests to the value of the Thieves-infused products in all the craziness we are in right now.

The Young Living markets around the world are juggling to get their hands on enough Thieves products, and some of these products are being sold in restricted quantities (eg. 1 per member), just to ensure we can get them to as many people in need as possible.

But there’s one Thieves product which hasn’t been getting the focus it should…and that’s Young Living’s Inner Defense softgels.

Inner Defense softgels pack a mighty punch

Did you know that Young Living was the first company (at least in Australia) to sell essential oils in a capsule? And no, it’s not to rub on your skin….these capsules are swallowed like any other capsule, bringing the power of essential oils to the very core of your body.

Taking essential oils in capsules is something that has been practiced in France for many decades, but it’s not well known yet in other regions of the world.

Taking essential oils in a capsule is an incredibly powerful and potent way to access the benefits of essential oils.

When Gary Young (the founder of Young Living) first moved to Ecuador around 2005, he invited our Young Living community to join him for a seminar. Many of us were a little worried about traveling into South America, but Gary was incredibly reassuring.



“Take 2 capsules of Inner Defense per day for 2 weeks before you arrive and for the entire time you are here”, he said, “and rub Palo Santo oil on your skin every few hours”.

Now, that was great advice! The Inner Defense was to help us stay healthy, and the Palo Santo oil was to help us enjoy the great outdoors, annoyance free.

Why Inner Defense?

Being in a softgel capsule, Inner Defense delivers potent essential oils right where we need them.

Every country has its own regulations on what we can claim about the benefits of Inner Defense, so please read the statement below that applies to your country/region:


In Australia, we can say that it helps support our well being by strengthening our immune system.






In the US and Europe, we can say that Inner Defense reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves® which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support.


Wow!!! That’s a really helpful thing in today’s world, right?

But the most important thing is the oils that are inside the Inner Defense capsule. It contains Thieves oil blend (which is Clove, Lemon, Eucalyptus radiata, Rosemary and Cinnamon Bark), as well as Oregano, Thyme and Lemongrass oils. These are mixed in a coconut oil base, so that it’s gentle on our stomach.

You only have to google these oils to see that they are going to be very helpful oils to have in your arsenal right now.

Who should take Inner Defense?

This is a product we all need to be taking – especially with everything that’s going on around us. It’s for everyone who:

  • Wants to support their overall health and their immune system
  • Is seeking a natural product to support healthy-looking skin and a more youthful appearance

How much should we take?

If you live in Australia, the recommendation is to take 2 capsules a day. In Europe and the US, it’s recommended to take 1 softgel in the morning for daily use, or 1 softgel 3-5 times daily when needed.

If you are taking Inner Defense, it’s a great idea to also be taking a probiotic like Young Living’s Life 9. For best results, this should be taken about 8 hours after the Inner Defense.

Australian news: The great news is that Life 9 is coming to Australia sometime this year!!! And while we’re waiting for it to be released here, it can be purchased on NFR (“not for resale”). Simply pop into your virtual office, and you’ll find a flag at the top left. Drop that down to reveal other country flags. Select the US flag, and that will redirect you to Young Living’s US site to order your Life 9.

Precautions: Inner Defense is a potent product – perfect for our modern times. However, if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition, make sure you consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.

Here’s how to order….

If you already have your own wholesale account with Young Living, you can order through the shopping cart on your virtual office, or via phone with your local Young Living office.

If it’s been more than 12 months since you’ve ordered, or if you’ve never set up an account, please reach out to the person who introduced you to Young Living. You will need their member number when you place your first order.

If you have lost touch with them, or need any other assistance, we are here to help. Simply contact us, and we’ll be in touch to assist you and help answer your questions.
