Myrtle- Young Living

🌳 FUN FACTS 🌳

Myrtle has been widely used as folk medicine for the treatment of digestive, pulmonary and skin problems in many parts of the world. The myrtle plant was associated with the ancient Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. Born from the sea foam, she sought the comfort of a myrtle bush to cover her nakedness, which is why myrtle also represents purity. Greek tradition has it that myrtle was offered to certain men and women as a symbol of honor. The Greeks also valued the plant because of its incredible healing qualities

🌳 WHAT IT DOES 🌳

Greek physicians used the plant oil for lung and bladder conditions, while in Italy, the oil was prescribed to children for coughing. The oil found in myrtle leaves was also used in skincare and as a remedy to regulate menstrual cycle. Today, myrtle oil has been extensively researched for its ability to help balance hormones, specifically the thyroid and ovaries. Myrtle possesses a particularly desirable property; it is an adaptogen, means it  may help regulate a gland depending on the needs of the person.

Myrtle is highly valued for skincare as it helps to minimize oil, open pores and tighten elasticity.  It can also be effective applied topically on location to speed the healing of blemishes

Myrtle is an excellent choice for respiratory support, and is gentle enough for children and elderly alike. It helps to promote healthy mucus levels in your respiratory tract. It encourages easy breathing by helping to open the sinuses

Myrtle makes an excellent deodorizer, helps promote sleep and is used in the aromatherapy world to soothe the nerves and reduce stress.

En-R-Gee

EN R GEE graphic

En-R-Gee- Young Living

⚡️ FUN FACTS  ⚡️

En-R-Gee is a blend of seven stimulating oils that have been used traditionally to help restore mental alertness and increase one’s energy naturally, without any unnatural side effects. This oil has been thoughtfully crafted to deliver energy in an intentional, multi-faceted way.

⚡️ WHAT IT DOES  ⚡️

Fresh and herbaceous, En-R-Gee essential oil blend offers an invigorating aromatic boost when you need it most. The oils in this blend work to activate the endocrine system (hormones). Hormones travel through the bloodstream, telling various systems what to do. They affect virtually every body function from digestion and metabolism to hair growth. Essential oils can help your endocrine system to fins a natural balance, thus encouraging a pep in your step, so to speak. Often fatigue, lethargy and lack of energy is a sign of hormonal imbalance.

The oils in this blend also stimulate the mind and the emotions through the limbic system. Low energy is sometimes due to clouded thinking, negative emotions or a sluggish mind. The oils in this blend help to oxygenate the brain, stimulate clarity of thought, increase mental sharpness and memory function, which brings the entire body to life. Positive thoughts produce positive energy.

The essential oils chosen for this blend also encourage a strong cardiovascular/ circulatory system. The more the heart pumps oxygen-rich blood through the body, the better the cells, tissues and organs thrive. Oxygen brings literal life-giving fuel to the cells and helps the entire body to “wake up” from head to toe.

Lastly, the oils in this blend help to soothe the body if it is fatigues from overwork. Overused muscles, whether in the arms or the mind, can be tired and slow to respond. Providing the comfort and support they need can help rejuvenate the body for the tasks ahead.

Today, you can find this amazing, healing oil in some of Young Living’s most popular blends, such as Deep Relief, PanAway, M-Grain, Forgiveness…

Forgiveness

Forgiveness graphic

Forgiveness- Young Living

❤️ FUN FACTS ❤️

The Young Living Forgiveness blend contains fifteen therapeutic grade, emotional oils that work in harmony to enhance the ability to release hurtful memories and move beyond emotional barriers. When we are lifted into a higher spiritual awareness, our frequency rises to the point where we are almost compelled to forgive, forget and let go. This is one major step in releasing emotional bondage from our lives. This blend has an extremely high (spiritual and emotional) frequency of 1942 MHz. To give you a comparison the human brain is 72-90 MHz and the body is 62-68 MHz.

Frequency is an indicator of the vibration and energy of food or even thoughts! For instance organic food has a higher vibration than conventional food. Processed food is 0 MHz; and studies have shown that just eating lower frequency foods can bring your overall frequency down! Essential Oils raise the vibrational level as soon as you smell them.

When the level of the essential oil is very high it helps us release things quicker by raising our spiritual awareness.

❤️ WHAT IT DOES ❤️

We forgive, not for the other person, but for ourselves.”  This is so we do not have to carry around the heavy burden that holding onto wrongs done to us can bear. And this burden takes a toll on our health, as science is now proving.

Psychologists and neurologists have been researching forgiveness and have concluded that the act of forgiveness is health-promoting for the forgiver.

Using essential oils, such as Young Living’s Forgiveness blend, has a direct influence on the brain because the sense of smell is the only sense directly wired to the brain. Olfactory nerves transport the aroma of essential oils to the limbic system and the olfactory sensory center at the base of the brain. The impulses are passed next between the pituitary and pineal gland and move to the amygdala, which is the memory center or fear and trauma. Healing and forgiveness can then take place.

Hyssop

HYSSOP graphic

Hyssop- Young Living

🌺 FUN FACTS 🌺

The perennial plant hyssop is native to the Mediterranean region and was considered a holy plant in biblical times.

The name, Hyssop,  actually means “holy herb.” It was used in rituals, teas, wound healing, and baths. David refers to hyssop in Psalm 51 as part of his repentant lament:

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

During the time of the Romans, this herb was used against the plague, as a disinfectant and for treatment of minor infections. In some parts of the world, it had a spiritual function, and was believed to purify and “forgive sins.”1 Christianity held hyssop in high regard — the herb was cited as a symbol of baptism and reconciliation.2 In other religions, it is associated with purification. This is largely due to the miasma theory, the belief that scent chased away illness. Although that  isn’t exactly the mechanism of action, the idea was there and the application was effective.

When steam-distilled, the plant produces a very potent essential oil

🌺  WHAT IT DOES 🌺 

Hyssop has been used since ancient times for nearly every ailment under the sun, from spiritual and emotional cleansing to boozing immunity and restoring health to patients. It helps to regulate menstrual flow, blood pressure and perspiration, as well as opening the airways, healing the skin and boosting immunity. Emotionally, hyssop has been said to clear the mind, alleviate nervous tension and generally overcome fatigue. This energy-inciting quality is one reason it has been administered to patients as it helps them overcome lethargy from being sick. Sometimes the best remedy is to get a patient moving again.

Hyssop has been studied intensively for it’s powerful properties, namely the way it interacts with viral cells and “disarms them,” The Bible also refers to hyssop and other plants as “bitter herbs” which were used to stimulate digestion and calm the digestive tract. Adding a few drops to a carrier oil can do wonders to promote relaxed muscles in any part of the body.

Emotionally and spiritually, Hyssop has long been used as a cleansing and purifying oil. The ancient Hebrews used it to chase away evil spirits. Hyssop was the plant the Lord commanded that the Israelites use to paint the lamb’s blood over their doorposts to ward off the Angel of Death in Egypt. See Exodus

Petitgrain

PETITGRAIN graphic

Petitgrain- Young Living

🍊 FUN FACTS 🍊

Petitgrain means “little grain” derives its name from the oil extraction- at one time it was pulled from the green, unripe oranges which were about the size of a cherry, instead of the leaves. Though steam distilled from the same botanical species as neroli and bitter orange, Petitgrain Essential Oil possesses its own characteristically unique aroma. Petitgrain Oil is distilled from the leaves and sometimes the twigs and branches of the tree whereas Neroli Essential Oil is distilled from the blossoms and Orange Essential Oil is typically cold pressed from the rinds of the fruits.Because if its pleasing scent, petitgrain has been used extensively in high-quality perfumes and cosmetics.

The ORAC value of petitgrain is 73,600 µTE/100g, compared to the highest, Clove, which is 1,078,700. 

🍊 WHAT IT DOES 🍊 

Petitgrain essential oil has traditionally been used to support a healthy nervous system—particularly with nervous stress and exhaustion. It may  improve instances of excessive perspiration. And support healthy skin and hair; particularly good for oily skin.

It is emotionally balancing and is very uplifting. This oil can help us release denial, avoidance and self judgment. Once these emotions are released we can see that we are using our emotional addictions to keep an a state of denial.

Petitgrain oil is about relinquishing self control and instilling self acceptance and love. It helps us be rather than do therefore it is helpful in easing panic and fear; and calming the body.

This oil can help us overcome addictions and compulsions. It releases denial, avoidance and self judgment. Once these emotions are released we can see that we are using our emotional addictions to keep an illusionary state.

This is fantastic oil for those who are always on the run (doing and work addiction) and will not take the time to address their emotional or spiritual path. As we know the addictive path is one of self destruction and burn out, because the physical body can not continue on this path 24 hours a day without repercussions.

The three conifer oils used in this blend have historically been used by the North American Indians to symbolically represent an umbrella of protection over the earth. Its also symbolic of bringing energy in from the universe. At night the animals lie under these trees fro protection, recharging and rejuvenation.

🏔 WHAT IT DOES 🏔

Sacred Mountain helps to ground you, empower you to find your strength, and protects you in that critical moment. Sacred Mountain is made from big, strong trees which have all the qualities you are searching for in this stressful moment. Spruce, Balsam Fir, and Cedarwood are in Sacred Mountain, plus it has Ylang Ylang. This unique blend helps you to find the peace and calm that is often felt in the great outdoors.
