Dragon Time essential oil is one of the best EOs Young Living has to offer for a myriad of hormonal ailments. If you haven’t heard of this amazing blend and you suffer from mood swings and erratic emotions, then you may want to look into picking up a bottle. For those of you interested in making a Dragon Time dupe, look no further!
This harmonizing blend has an intense licorice-y herbaceous aroma with hints of clary sage, lavender, and marjoram. It also has a strong, almost medicinal undertone of blue yarrow.
Needless to say, the scent of this synergistic blend isn’t my favorite by a long shot, but that’s not what matters when formulating an effective essential oil blend. This oil packs a powerful punch because it contains very potent essential oils that support the female reproductive system.
The benefits of Dragon Time essential oil include:
- Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) – aids in relaxation and easing stress
- Marjoram (Origanum majorana) – relieves nervous tension
- Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) – supports feelings of well-being and general calmness
- Jasmin (Jasminum officinale) – lessens feelings of stress and balances feminine energy
- Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) – supports female hormone balance
- Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) – supports healthy digestion, hormone regulation, and eases heavy bleeding
Together, these oils create a synergistic and revitalizing experience that promotes healthy emotions, feelings of stability, and hormonal balance – the perfect blend for all things women’s health related due to its natural phytoestrogens and soothing properties.
How to Make a Copycat Dragon Time Essential Oil Blend
After hours of sniffing essential oils, I have finally landed on recipe that closely resembles the original formula.
Here’s what you’re going to need to make your Dragon Time essential oil dupe:
Lavender essential oil – 2 drops
Marjoram essential oil – 5 drops
Fennel essential oil – 6 drops
Clary Sage essential oil – 6 drops
Yarrow essential oil – 1 drop
Jasmine essential oil – 1 drop
A roll-on bottle
A small funnel
Carrier oil like sweet almond, jojoba, fractionated coconut oil, or olive oil, etc
Add each essential oil to the roll-on bottle one by one. Carefully count the drops as some oils are overpowering.
After you have added all the oils, use the small funnel and slowly fill the roll-on to the shoulder with carrier oil.
Cap the roll-on closed and roll it between your palms to mix.
I like to let this blend “age” for a few days before use if possible as it will allow the oils to get cozy. You will find the aroma to be much more rounded. However, if you need this amazing feminine aid blend right away, you can use it as soon as you’re finished making it for a truly comforting experience.
For general mood balance, apply this blend on the inner ankles and the bottoms of the feet. I also recommend applying it to the forearms as those veins are close to the skin.
To avoid possible skin sensitivity, mix one drop of Dragon Time with 1 tsp of carrier oil and apply a few drops to your forearm. Massage it in and see if you experience any sensitivity.
This blend can be used once you have experienced your first menstrual cycle, though I recommend waiting until 16-18 years of age once adolescent hormones have begun to balance out a lot more.
Delay usage or use with caution during adolescence.
Dragon Time is meant for hormonally mature women who experience hormonal imbalance.
Keep your copycat recipe stored in a cool dark place away from direct sunlight and uv rays and keep out of reach of children.
How to Make a 5ml Bottle of Dragon Time Young Living
If you need a larger supply of homemade Dragon Time, this is how I did it.
You will need the following ingredients:
8 drops lavender essential oil
20 drops marjoram essential oil
24 drops fennel essential oil
24 drops clary sage essential oil
4 drops yarrow essential oil
4 drops jasmine essential oil (you can use as little as 2 drops of this if you find jasmine to be too strong. Add the drops one at a time to see what your preference is)
1 empty 5ml essential oil bottle
All you have to do is add all of the EOs to the bottle, cap it closed, and let it age if possible for 48 hours to one week. You can use the blend right away if needed but aging makes it meld together nicely.
Dragon Time Massage Oil Recipe
To make a massage oil version using your homemade dragon time essential oil blend, you will need the following:
- One 4 oz squeeze bottle
- Carrier oil of choice like sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, or avocado oil (these are middle of the road in terms of heaviness and work well for massage purposes)
- 48 drops of copycat Dragon Time essential oil (this creates a 2% dilution)
Simply add the Dragon Time blend to the squeeze bottle, then fill it to the shoulder with carrier oil.
Roll the bottle between your palms to mix thoroughly.
To use it, apply the desired amount to your hands and massage into the lower back, abdomen, shoulders, and outer ankles, avoiding mucous membranes and other areas with the most sensitive skin.
Dragon Time Essential Oil Uses and Benefits
This amazing blend can be used for a variety of women’s health conditions:

- Can calm a stressed mind
- Promotes feelings of self-worth, gratitude, and forgiveness
- Aids in the release of anger
- Helps the body transition between menstrual phases

Do not use any essential oil blends (even therapeutic-grade options) if you suffer from serious hormonal conditions (like thyroid disease) or take specific hormonal medications without first speaking with your physician.

Do you like Melalucca oils? I know some oils aren’t as good as others. Just wondering how theirs measure up?
In the first Dragon Time recipe on this page, what size bottle are you using; then topping off with a carrier oil? 30ml?
Can you ingest dragontime essential oil? An actually dragontime oil and or this home made blend of dragontime? Is there oils you cant ingest? I know some would suck to ingest but technically are there any you cant?
I wouldn’t eat it personally. it is always ALWAYS best to be under the care of a certified aromatherapist who is trained in ingesting essential oils. Dragon Time works MUCH better applied topically to thin skinned areas like inner elbows, behind the knees, wrists, and the underside of the forearms.
Kim Bayne says
Do you recommend a specific brand of oils to use?
I have a few DoTerra & a few Young Living, but I’m always looking for good recommendations.
I like both doTerra and Young Living, but I also really love Plant Therapy, Simplers Botanicals, Vitality Works, and Wyndmere 🙂
I do not have yarrow and I’m in menopause will this help with hot flashes and the post menopause symptoms ?
The yarrow does help cool hot flashes but so does clary sage so you should be alright with just clary sage in there for now. Yarrow is a pretty amazing oil, so if you come across it it’s definitely worth picking up 🙂

We all try to do so much and I know at times I become exhausted. I love to use oils to help boost me up and this blend is perfect! Roll over pulse points, cup and inhale! This will help get you going and over the exhaustion!
This is true Wiley! Thanks for your input!
Is there anything I can sub the jasmine eo for? It’s the only one I don’t have!
Jasmine has some pretty specific properties that work well with female reproductive health so it’s a little hard to fully replace it. I would try neroli essential oil as it has similar properties 🙂
Hi have been waiting for this! Dragon Time is one of my favorite oils. I can’t wait to try this out!
I hope you like it! I’ve had great results with it 🙂
