German Chamomile & Vitality

German Chamomile & Chamomile Vitality

🌸 FUN FACTS 🌸

Considered to be one of the most ancient and versatile medicinal herbs known to man, chamomile has innumerable health benefits. Native to Europe, this member of the daisy family has a long history of use from crying children to digestive tonics. Chamomile has been one of the “catch all” remedies for just about every ailment known to man- it is an extremely versatile little flower!

There are two common types of chamomile used medicinally today: German chamomile and Roman chamomile

🌸 WHAT IT DOES 🌸

Packed full of vital antioxidants, Chamomile is a powerful healing factory. An effective alternative medicine with almost no known negative side effects, chamomile has been used for over 5,000 years in  teas, herbal extracts and cosmetics because it promotes tranquility, vitality, a youthful appearance and longevity.

Antioxidants in  German Chamomile help maintain a healthy inflammatory level in the body by offsetting free radical damage (oxidative stress) and preventing cell mutation. This can lead to better immune function, improved emotional balance, increased comfort in organs, muscles and joints (throughout the body) and healthier skin, hair, nails, teeth and eyes. Emotionally, Chamomile is one the best medicinal herbs for fighting stress and promoting relaxation. It behaves as a mild sedative, calming the nerves as its aromatic molecules travel directly to the olfactory part of the brain, turning off tension and reducing the body’s stress response. Our emotions and hormonal balance are in response to our sense of smell, so German Chamomile can help balance the endocrine system as well.

Chamomile has been well known since the beginning of time to aid digestion, whether promoting healthy gas levels and heathy stools, to encouraging comfort and stabilizing the nervous/ digestive  link. Applied topically or ingested, Chamomile serves to promote ease and comfort and healthy inflammatory response wherever there is a need in the body. From the back, to joints, to teeth and gums, it is a very soothing oil. And it world for smoothing the skin, too- it’s a beloved oil for beauty.

Applied over the chest or deep inhaled, it supports healthy respiratory function and nourishes the cardiovascular system.  There is virtually no system of the body that Chamomile doesn’t offer aid and comfort when needed.

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.
