Geranium- Young Living

💞 FUN FACTS 💞 

Geranium oil is extracted from the stems, leaves and flowers. During the 1600s, European gardeners would plant geraniums around their houses to keep the evil spirits out. However, this geranium oil is no the same as the houseplants. It was used by the Egyptians as an oil of beauty, known for promoting radiant skin.

💞 WHAT IT DOES 💞 

Historically, geranium has been prized for all kinds of medicinal uses, from smoothing and clearing skin, to stopping bleeding, to improving blood flow. Its highly floral aroma is uplifting to the emotions, and it it an excellent oil for opening the liver chakra and discharging toxins from the liver.

Aromatically, geranium is said to help us release negative memories and take us back to peaceful, joyful moments in our lives. It may also ease nervous tension and help balance stress. It is said to not only uplift moods, but lessen fatigue, which is a common cause of depression and lethargy.

Geranium is also said to help hormone balance and works as a natural deodorant

Tea Tree- Young Living

🌳 FUN FACTS 🌳 

Tea Tree, also known as Melaleuca alternifolia, is one of the most widely used and extensively researched essential oils. Some of the benefits of Tea Tree include cleansing properties, as well as a refreshing scent. The oil is extracted from the steam distillation of leaves and branches of the Melaleuca alternifolia tree, which is native to Australia. Tea Tree essential oil has been described as having a fresh, camphor-like smell

🌳 WHAT IT DOES 🌳 

The leaves of the melaleuca tree have been used for centuries by the aborigines for its innumerable healing applications, particularly to wounds and the skin. These native Australians crush tea tree leaves to extract the oil, which the would apply as a poultice, inhale the vapors, or apply oil to the body. Tea Tree oil is also prized for its effectiveness in respiratory support, joint support, skincare, scalp conditioning, helping the skin to maintain a healthy microbial balance, and much much more

Constituents to research: terpinene-4-ol, gamma terpinene, and alpha-terpinene.

Thyme & Thyme Vitality- Young Living

⏰ FUN FACTS ⏰

For centuries, thyme has been used across nations and cultures for incense in holy temples, ancient embalming practices, and warding off nightmares. Historically, Thyme was used by the Egyptians for embalming (think preserved skin, ladies!) and the ancient Greeks used it for protection against  a myriad of diseases. The powerful constituents in Thyme oil provide a cleansing and purifying effect on the skin, but because thyme is high in thymol, it should always be diluted.

⏰ WHAT IT DOES ⏰

Thyme is known to be a general tonic for the nerves and the stomach. It has been used traditionally to aid breathing, encourage healthy digestion, soothe the abdominal region, strengthen the spine, encourage healthy urinary and vaginal environment. Aromatically, Thyme is popular for helping one overcome fatigue and exhaustion after illness- it encourages energy during times of weakness or stress. Thyme is generally prized for its effects on the Immune system, muscles and bones. But it aids many other body systems as well.

Lime & Lime Vitality

Lime graphic

 

Lime & Lime Vitality- Young Living

💚 FUN FACTS 💚

Did you know that of all the fruits in the citrus family, lime may be one of the most mysterious? The precise origin of the lime fruit is unknown to botanists to this very day. Wild limes are believed to have first grown in Indonesia or Southeast Asia and then transplanted to the Mediterranean and Northern Africa around 1000 AD.

Before that? Nobody seems to know.

Whether you’re stirring it into drinks for a bright burst of flavor or giving your food a little extra citrus zip, Lime Vitality™ essential oil is a welcome kick of summer that you can enjoy year-round.

💚 WHAT IT DOES 💚

Young Living’s Lime Vitality oil is cold pressed from the rind of limes.

The rind is taken from unripe fruit for maximum levels of three key constituents:

  • limonene,
  • gamma-terpinene, and
  • beta-pinene.

While most of the citrus family starts green and ripens into a bright color, lime keeps its green even after the fruit matures.

Lime Vitality brings a unique citrus flavor and delicious zing to any food or beverage. We love adding it to guacamole, marinades, and any type of drink! Make sure to start with a toothpick dipped in Lime Vitality when cooking. A little bit of essential oil goes a long way, and many times 1–2 drops can be too much!

  • Digestive System
  • Immune System
  • Respiratory System

💚 IDEAS FOR USE – TOPICAL/ AROMATIC (non-Vitality) 💚

  • Diffuse to overcome exhaustion, depression
  • Deep inhale for a stimulating, refreshing, invigorating aroma
  • Apply to vita flex points
  • Add a drop to your favorite shower gel
  • Add  a drop to your body lotion
  • Use as a deodorant
  • add a few drops to a bowl of steaming water and inhale for respiratory support or add a few drops to a carrier oil and rub it on your chest
  • add to face moisturizer or face soap for cleansing
  • add a few drops to shampoo/ conditioner for healthy, moisturized scalp
  • use to remove grease spots or adhesive residue

💚 INTERNAL (Vitality only) 💚

  • Add 1 drop to a vegetarian gel capsule and take it daily or as needed as a dietary supplement.
  • Combine Lime Vitality with olive oil and use it as a marinade for meat and veggies. Include a drop in your stir-fry to bring dimension and add depth of flavor.
  • Complement the natural sweetness of berry dishes with a touch of Lime Vitality.
  • Stay hydrated and add variety by infusing water with a drop or two of Lime Vitality.
  • Add to fruits to keep them from turning brown
  • add a few drops to your water or NingXia Red to help detox your liver
