Blue Cypress- Young Living

💙 FUN FACTS 💙

The word “cypress” is a common name given to several genera of evergreen, aromatic trees and shrubs which belong to the Cupressaceae family, and many of them yield essential oil. This particular cypress oil, callitris intratropica, comes from Australia. The oil’s most striking characteristic is surely its bluish coloring. Derived from the Northern Territory Cypress Pine, this oil is distilled from the barks and heart woods and requires extremely long distillation times of up to 48 hours. Most oil companies do NOT distill their oils properly (so they lack the vital constituents for wellness), so beware of who you purchase from! Historically, blue cypress has many medicinal uses for the Blue Cypress has been used historically for incense, perfume and embalming

💙 WHAT IT DOES 💙

Widely used in cosmetics as an anti-aging agent, it is beneficial to all areas of the skin, everything from the face and beauty routines to delicate baby bottoms when their diapers have rubbed them raw.

Cypress essential oil can help strengthen the gums and tighten muscles throughout the body. The main function is contraction, so cypress oil makes your gums, skin, muscles, and hair follicles contract and strengthens the cavities that hold hair and teeth, etc. It also tightens up loose skin and muscles.

Cypress oil is helpful in promoting calm muscles in the face of spasms, from  the respiratory system and intestines to the muscles in the limbs, making it a wonderful oil for the musculoskeletal system.

Cypress oil stimulates  frequency and quantity of urination, which is beneficial because urine removes excess water and toxins from the body, helps to reduce blood pressure and cleans out the kidneys. Many of the mainstream medications for lowering blood pressure are based on this aspect of detoxing through increased urination.

Other properties of cypress oil make it a good choice for treating wounds- it is a common ingredient in first aid lotions and creams, namely, Cypress oil behaves as a hemostatic and a styptic agent. Hemostatic means that it can help stop blood flow and promote clotting. Styptic primarily means it helps to prevent excessive loss of blood through contraction of the blood vessels. If someone is bleeding profusely, they need a hemostatic agent to speed up the clotting of blood and stop its flow to save their life. Similarly, a styptic agent promotes the contraction of gums, hair follicles, muscles, skin, and blood vessels, thereby stimulating the flow of blood through the blood vessels. Both of these properties can be life-saving.

Cypress oil boosts the respiratory system and increases lung  efficiency. It helps clear any buildup in the respiratory tracts and lungs to make breathing easier during times of seasonal sniffles or the common crud.

Cypress oil is considered to be a very powerful sudorific agent, which means it can cause sweating or perspiration. Periodic sweating helps remove toxins, excess salt, and water from the body, clearing out the pores. Clean pores helps to  keep away bacteria and disease.

Cypress oil endures optimal liver health by regulating a proper discharge of bile- a crucial part of a healthy the digestive process. Because Cypress also soothes muscle tension, it can bring abdominal comfort, for the digestive process or menstrual cycle.

💙 IDEAS FOR USE- TOPICAL/ AROMATIC 💙

  • Apply a few drops with carrier oil topically over abdomen to soothe menstruation flow
  • Apply a few drops over the bladder to increase urinary flow
  • Apply to the underarms to increase sweating and the release of toxins from the body- great to apply before a workout
  • Massage over areas where muscles are continually contracting to promote calmness

Patchouli

PATCHOULI graphic

Patchouli – Young Living

🌸 FUN FACTS 🌸

Derived from a large evergreen perennial, and related to the lavender and sage family, Patchouli has been prized for centuries for healing and beautifying the skin. The oil originated in southeast Asia and is extracted from the plant’s lightly fragrant leaves and the white, violet-marked flowers. Countless generations across the globe have used patchouli for a wide variety of needs. In ancient Rome, Romans, it was used to stimulate the appetite. In Egypt, King Tut arranged to have gallons of patchouli oil buried with him in his tomb. In Asia, people used it extensively for medicinal purposes- everything from treating skin bites to soothing headaches.

Nowadays, patchouli oil is used as a fragrance in skin and personal care products, potpourri, insect repellents, detergents and incense. Interestingly enough, patchouli is a major component of the fragrance industry, because it acts like a fine wine and it’s aroma gets better (and changes) with age!

🌸 WHAT IT DOES 🌸

Patchouli has a distinct floral and musky aroma which has somewhat of an acquired taste. However, many people who do not love its fragrance dat first, grow to love it as they experience its healing benefits, both to body and mind. Emotionally, patchouli oil is said to help relieve anxiety, stress and depression because of the impact it has on our hormones: Patchouli encourages the release of serotonin and dopamine, hormones that ease feelings of anger, anxiety and anxiousness. This is one reason why patchouli is often diffused (or incense burned) during prayer- it creates an atmosphere of tranquility.

Hormonally, patchouli also has the power to stimulate the libido and has been used as an aphrodisiac for centuries. It has also been proven effective for helping partners maintain physical ability during intimacy

Patchouli also stimulated muscle contractions (as opposed to other oils which do the reverse) so it aids skin and hair, stimulating the hair follicles and tightening the skin. It also is incredibly moisturizing and helps to encourage new cell growth, keeping the skin young and healthy. It works well on all skin types, whether dry or oils, to promote balance, so it’s a great oil for the scalp and the face.

Patchouli also is beneficial to the liver, stomach and intestines and it helps your body to process food and absorb nutrients effectively. It also acts as a stimulant to the bladder, increasing urination, helping your body to expel toxins effectively- this is beneficial to the gallbladder, liver and kidneys, which are the body’s filtration system. This oils is known as a toxins- digestor for the body.

At night, patchouli is extremely calming to the nervous system and the mind, so many people use it to promote a restful night sleep.

Another beautiful thing about patchouli is that bugs don’t tend to like it, so take your patchouli outdoors, when camping, or sitting on your porch. Many people add it to their laundry detergent or dryer balls as a natural shield against unwanted fly-bys.

German Chamomile & Vitality

GERMAN CHAMOMILE graphic

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.

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.

Clary Sage

Clary Sage essential oil by Young Living

 

Clary Sage- Young Living

💐 FUN FACTS 💐

Originating from the mint family, clary sage was famous during the Middle Ages for its ability to help clear eye problems, This earned it the name “Clear Eyes.” A perennial in the genus Salvi, and its scientific name is salvia sclarea, it is considered to be one of the top essential oils for hormones.

💐 WHAT IT DOES 💐

Widely used for female issues, kidney support, digestive aid and skin enhancers, clary sage affects the hormones, or endocrine system. Clary sage affects the hormones of the body because it contains natural phytoestrogens, which are referred to as “dietary estrogens” that are derived from plants and not within the endocrine system. These phytoestrogens give clary sage the ability to cause estrogenic effects. It regulates estrogen levels and ensures the long-term health of the uterus — reducing the chances of uterine and ovarian cancer.

A lot of health issues today, even things like infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome and estrogen-based cancers, are caused from excess estrogen in the body — in part because of our consumption of high-estrogen foods. Because clary sage helps balance out those estrogen levels, it’s an incredibly effective essential oil.

Clary sage works to regulate the menstrual cycle by balancing hormone levels naturally and helps to alleviate typical pre-menstrual conditions. It has been used effectively in balancing mood as it has been shown to reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels upon to 36%. It also helps with sleep, supports healthy circulation and blood pressure levels,

A study was done of over 8,000 women in labor, and the aromatic benefits of clary sage demonstrated significant effectiveness at lowering maternal anxiety, fear and even pain during labor.  Another study showed clary sage’s remarkable power to soothe menstrual conditions in women

Jasmine

Jasmine Graphic

Jasmine- Young Living

💖 FUN FACTS 💖

The nickname for the Jasmine flower in India is the “Queen of the night,” because of its seductive, aphrodisiac-like fragrance, as the fact that the flower itself only blooms in the middle of the night. Jasmine also goes by the name “moonlight of the grove,” and women have treasured Jasmine for centuries for its beautiful aroma. In many religious traditions, Jasmine symbolizes hope, happiness, and love.

Jasmine absolute oil is produced from absolute extraction (it is an absolute essence, not an essential oil) as steam distillation is not suitable for the fragile jasmine flowers. It takes 3.6 million flowers to produce just 1 pound of jasmine absolute oil, making it one of the most expensive oils in the world. Young Living uses 10 pounds of flowers to make one 5-ml bottle.

To achieve the highest quality oil, jasmine flowers have to be harvested at night as they secrete a powerful fragrance before sunrise. Growers have to use extreme care when picking the flowers to avoid “bruising” them, because bruised flowers will produce an unpleasant fragrance.

💖 WHAT IT DOES 💖

Derived from the jasmine flower, this oil is a popular natural remedy for improving mood, overcoming stress and balancing hormones. Many women use it to bring comfort and skin smoothing during hormonal times of the month.

Many studies have found improvements in mood and sleep after using jasmine oil to boost energy levels. Results of several studies demonstrate that jasmine oil has a stimulating/activating effect of the brain and has been used for hundreds of years in parts of Asia as a natural remedy for depression, anxiety, emotional stress and  low libido. Interestingly, however, Jasmine has also been used in sleep studies and is shown to be a powerful relaxant. Jasmine has been shown to have a sedating effect on the autonomic nerve activity by helping to reduce heart rate and bringing about feelings of calm and relaxation. Its effects are powerful when combines with other soothing oil like Lavender or Frankincense.

Cypress – Young Living

🌲 FUN FACTS 🌲

The Phoenicians used Cypress for building ships and bows, while the Egyptians used ti build their sarcophagi. Ancient Greeks used the woods carve statues of their gods. The term “sempervirens,” from which the botanical name Cupressus sempervirens is derived, means to live forever. Cypress is noted for its durability, and it was most famously used for the original doors of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican- legends say those doors lasted for over 1,000 years!

🌲 WHAT IT DOES 🌲

Cypress is well known to aid the circulatory system, and helps stimulate circulation. It was used historically for its benefits to the urinary system and the Chinese valued it for its benefits to the liver and the respiratory system.
