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.

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) 🍃

• 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 (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
