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.

Angelica

ANGELICA graphic

Angelica- Young Living

🦋 FUN FACTS 🦋

This plant rows wild in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland, mostly in the northern parts of the countries, but it is cultivated mostly in France.  Angelica is from the parsley family, but don’t let that deter you. Legend has it that this oil got its name from an old monk’s tale in which an angel revealed this plant for healing during the plague.   It goes by many names, including the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit Root, Archangel Root and Oil of Angels, probably because its healing powers were so great that the origin must have only been from a Divine Source. History also records its usage during the plague of 1660. People chewed the plant stems to ward off infection, and the seed and roots were used to purify the air. In Germany, this oil is known as the “essence of the Angels.”

🦋 WHAT IT DOES 🦋

While Angelica’s primary use is for cooling,  Energetically, this essential oil assists the user to be open to the angelic realm, source energy and higher self and has a history of aromatherapy use towards combating stress, exhaustion and anxiety. Because Angelica is both a relaxant and a stimulant at the same time, it soothes the nerves while simultaneously encouraging alertness. This is a wonderful oil to use for mental focus.

Medicinally, this oil helps promote calmness in the face of spasms- involuntary and unpredictable contractions of the respiratory tracts, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and internal organs. Often times the only way out is to induce relaxation in the affected parts, which Young Living’s Essential Oil of Angelica is able to do. This relaxing effect is beneficial in driving out gas from the intestines as well- as the abdominal and intestinal walls relax, the gas can more easily pass through. It also stimulated the production of bile and gastric juices, so Angelica supports healthy gas levels and digestive comfort.

Angelica also helps to promote urination and sweating, which aids the body in detoxification. In addition, this oil is wonderful for supporting healthy liver function; Detox of the body through urinary, sweat and liver processes help to boost the immune system . As the body gets rid of undesirable materials, it grows stronger in the “fight.”

Angelica also works to support the bronchial passages, sinuses and generally encourages ease of respiration.

In contrary to its behavior as a relaxant, it is a stimulant for the systems functioning inside the body. It stimulates blood circulation, the secretion of hormones, enzymes, and other juices, and also stimulates metabolic processes, including digestion, absorption, and excretion. This attribute, in total, stimulates healthy growth.

Helichrysum

HELICHRYSUM graphic

Helichrysum- Young Living

🧡  FUN FACTS 🧡

Helichrysum is known as Immortelle, or the Everlasting Flower, possibly because of the way its essential oil can smooth the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone.  Its name,  “helichrysum” comes from Latin and Greek roots, meaning “gold spiral” due to its beautiful, golden blossoms. Historically,  it has been used for many different ailments for centuries, especially in Eastern, Western, and Southern African culture. Different tribes in Africa have used helichrysum mostly for countless medicinal purposes. 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…

Helichrysum is typically harvested wild from the rocky shores of Croatia’s Dalmatia region, but Young Living’s helichrysum is cultivated at our farm in Split, Croatia. By cultivating this rare plant, Young Living is helping to protect it from exploitation and over-harvesting. In using our Helichrysum essential oil, you’re helping support sustainable agriculture.

🧡 WHAT IT DOES🧡

An antioxidant, helichrysum is cleansing to the blood, helpful in detoxification, this oil supports the liver cells, gallbladder, lymph system and pancreas. But its benefits are not limited to these organs, helichrysum is incredible for the skin, the muscles and joints, tissue repair, encourages bruises to heal, supports the circulatory system, promotes good hearing, supports the lower back, and is a must-have oil for your first aid kit. Overall, it is amazing at helping the body (in any location) maintain a healthy inflammatory level. It is also a great pool to naturally protect the skin from the sun!

Emotionally, helichrysum is uplifting to the subconscious and helps people cut through the barrier of anger, allowing one to move towards forgiveness and ultimately emotional freedom. Helichrysum has a very high frequency, on the emotional/ spiritual level at 181 MHz

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

Young Living Oregano & Oregano Vitality Essential oil- same oil inside, different labels!

Oregano & Oregano Vitality- Young Living

🍃 FUN FACTS 🍃

Steam distilled from the leaves of the Oregano plant, a hardy perennial herb and member of the mint family. The ancient Greeks and Romans have a profound appreciation for oregano, using it for various medicinal purposes. In fact, its name comes from the Greek words “oros” and “ganos,” which are words for mountain and joy — oregano literally means “joy of the mountain.”

It was revered as a symbol of happiness, and it was an ancient tradition to crown brides and grooms with a laurel of oregano. Its most well known constituents are Thymol, Cavracol, Beta-caryophyllin (BCP), and rosemaric acid- a powerful antioxidant

🍃 WHAT IT DOES 🍃

*** ALWAYS DILUTE IN TOPICAL APPLICATIONS because it can cause skin irritation.

Oregano is highly recommended as an oil to add to your arsenal of natural healing tools, as it has a wide range of uses, but is most associated with respiratory and immune system health. It also positively benefits the muscles and bones. Oregano has been gaining popularity as a natural remedy, though its use as a health-boosting herb is centuries old. It contains high amounts of Omega-3s, Iron, Manganese, and antioxidants.  Oregano is a very flavorful herb that is often used in Italian, Greek and Spanish cooking. It is often used in seasoning blends, including Italian Seasoning, and pairs well with meats, tomato dishes, and eggs.

🍃 IDEAS FOR USE –  INTERNAL (with Vitality™ only) 🍃

• Place a drop under the tongue and hold it there for several seconds to boost the immune system

• Take it as a dietary supplement by adding a drop to a vegetarian capsule and taking daily or as needed.*

• Add a few drop to your soups or stews, especially during times of illness

• Substitute Oregano Vitality in any recipe calling for the dried Oregano herb

• Give meats and veggies a minty note by including Spearmint Vitality in your marinades.

🍃 TOPICAL/ AROMATIC (non- Vitality™) 🍃

• Apply topically on location f(mixed with a carrier oil) to aid skin healing

• Apply (diluted) over muscles and joints for soothing relief

• Apply to foot bottoms, between the toes or toenails to encourage a healthy bacterial environment

• Apply on location to skin areas for smoothing warts or skin tags (use caution if the oil is too hot- dilute)

• Add several drops to your DIY outdoor spray

• Place a few drops on a cotton ball and place the cottontail to deter creepy-crawlies from entering your home

• Apply (diluted) to insect bites or to soothe skin

• Add a few drops to boiling water, and being careful not to get the steam in your eyes, gently inhale the oregano steam to promote healthy breathing

• Add a few drops to your favorite Shampoo to help the scalp stay moisturized. Be careful to avoid the eyes

• Soak hands or feet in a basin of warm water to encourage healthy skin and promote a healthy bacterial environment

• Apply (diluted) to the chest to aid respiration

• Add a few drops to your bath

• Combine ravintsara essential oil with rosemary, rosewood, or tangerine essential oil to combat feelings of apathy. These “pick-me-up” essential oils will help increase energy and mental concentration.

• Use ravintsara in combination with frankincense, ginger or grapefruit essential oils to help your mood. Ravintsara essential oil can sweeten or enhance the other oils it is mixed with, so try using more than one oil if you want to try something new.

PINE essential oil Young Living

Pine- Young Living

🌲 FUN FACTS 🌲

One of the reasons that pine oil has become such an important element in supplemental health is its availability. Pine trees grow in huge numbers all over the world- did you know that approximately 30 percent of the 35 million harvested Christmas trees annually are Scotch Pine? Young Living’s Pine oil is distilled from the needles of this tree.

Traditionally, pine was used to help support the respiratory system, Some cultures, Pine branches were placed on coffins to signify immortality and Native Americans placed pine needles in their mattresses to keep away fleas and lice. Pine was used to treat various serious ailments, particularly those dealing with the lungs.

🌲WHAT IT DOES 🌲

Pine essential oil has a mesmerizing essence that gives a sweet aroma to any product you add it to- it creates an energized feeling and is effective for removing mental stress and is often added to baths and saunas to address mental and emotional fatigue. It is known to increases metabolism and boosts your activity levels.

Pine oil is also soothing to muscles following exercise. It has been connected with aiding eye health due to it’s free-radical absorption activity. Pine also shares many of the properties of Eucalyptus globulus, which is why it is found in RC (also contains three varieties of eucalyptus) – it helps support and maintain a healthy respiratory system, emotional balance, skin balance, healthy nervous system, blood pressure, and circulatory system.
