Carrot Seed & Carrot Seed Vitality

🥕 FUN FACTS 🥕

Surprisingly enough, carrots are part of the parsley family, but it’s not the garden vegetable variety that you’re thinking of. The essential oil is extracted from the dried seeds through steam distillation.  The seeds may be small, but they are packed with natural healing properties. Popularly called wild Queen Anne’s lace, its native origins can be traced back to Egypt, France and India.

Carrot seed oil has a thicker, more viscous consistency and a distinct woody, earthy and deliciously root-like fragrance.

🥕 WHAT IT DOES 🥕

Carrot Seed oil contains powerful antioxidants, which are amazingly beneficial to the body as they fight free radicals and help slow the degenerative process of aging.

Historically, carrots have been used as a blood cleanser and to support the liver, gallbladder and the skin as well as the heart, intestines and nervous system. And we all know carrots are good for the eyes.

Carrot seed also helps stimulate the lymph system (immunity) aids in soothing digestion and the excretory tract, supports abdominal comfort during the menstrual cycle, and generally promotes comfort to the abdominal region.

Applied topically to muscles and joints, carrot seed oil helps the body maintain healthy inflammatory levels, encouraging comfort on location. This oil works in beauty products to moisturize the skin, improve elasticity and liven up skin tone.

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

Black Pepper & Black Pepper Vitality

Black Pepper graphic

Black Pepper & Black Pepper Vitality- Young Living

💥 FUN FACTS 💥

Black Pepper, one of the most used spices on planet earth, is so commonplace that its medicinal values largely go unrecognized. Its essential oil is steam distilled form berries grown in Egypt, Madagascar and India. Pepper was used by the Egyptians in mummification as evidenced by the discovery of black pepper in the nostrils and abdomen of Ramses II. Indian monks ate several black pepper corns a day to maintain their incredible stamina and energy

For centuries, black pepper was as highly prized as gold and silver and accounted for 70% of the international spice trade. During the Dark Ages, Arab traders had a monopoly on the black pepper trade. To maintain this monopoly and keep the source of black pepper a closely-guarded secret (and hence increase the price and prestige of black pepper), they came up with a great story. The tale they told was that black pepper grew in groves of trees that were guarded by poisonous snakes. In order to harvest the black pepper, the trees had to be burned in order to drive out the snakes. This process ( so they said) also turned the originally white fruit black! That myth worked for a long time.

💥 WHAT IT DOES 💥

Historically, pepper was used for thousands of years for malaria, cholera and digestive issues. Today, pepper’s primary common use is to revive someone who has fainted. However, pepper is also stimulating and comforting for those who are awake as well! This oil may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, detox the body, enhance circulation, increase cellular oxygenation, support digestive glands, and stimulate the endocrine system, increase energy, aid with addiction recovery, improve a healthy appetite, aid muscle tone, support joint connective tissue, aid circulation and help one regain balance and settle the nerves from imbalance.

Studies have shown that Curcumin (the active compound of turmeric) is made readily bioavailable with the presence of black pepper- any good turmeric supplement should have black pepper as a main ingredient

Aromatically, black pepper is said to help people examine things with clarity and honesty

Kunzea- Young Living

🍃 FUN FACTS 🍃

Kunzea bushes are found across Australia, and have been used for centuries by indigenous cultures for all kinds of medicinal purposes. It was only recently rediscovered because farmers and ranchers notices that wherever their barbed wire fences ran through a Kunzea bush, the wire did not rust. This is because kunzea has a high level of antioxidants! The Kunzea bush was also referred to as the Tick bush, because cowboys or campers sleeping under a Kunzea tree would not get ticks as ticks have an aversion to the properties in this plant.

The beautiful coasts of Australia and Tasmania boast a playful white and pink flower known as kunzea. Produced from the steam distillation of the leaves and green branchlets, Kunzea essential oil offers a spicy, woodsy aroma to uplift any environment. With properties that help soothe fatigued muscles and work to reduce the appearance of blemishes, Kunzea will be a new household staple. Use alongside Purification® to help purify the air or instead of Tea Tree for a more pleasant aroma and milder sensation when applied topically.

🍃 WHAT IT DOES 🍃
