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.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness graphic

Forgiveness- Young Living

❤️ FUN FACTS ❤️

The Young Living Forgiveness blend contains fifteen therapeutic grade, emotional oils that work in harmony to enhance the ability to release hurtful memories and move beyond emotional barriers. When we are lifted into a higher spiritual awareness, our frequency rises to the point where we are almost compelled to forgive, forget and let go. This is one major step in releasing emotional bondage from our lives. This blend has an extremely high (spiritual and emotional) frequency of 1942 MHz. To give you a comparison the human brain is 72-90 MHz and the body is 62-68 MHz.

Frequency is an indicator of the vibration and energy of food or even thoughts! For instance organic food has a higher vibration than conventional food. Processed food is 0 MHz; and studies have shown that just eating lower frequency foods can bring your overall frequency down! Essential Oils raise the vibrational level as soon as you smell them.

When the level of the essential oil is very high it helps us release things quicker by raising our spiritual awareness.

❤️ WHAT IT DOES ❤️

We forgive, not for the other person, but for ourselves.”  This is so we do not have to carry around the heavy burden that holding onto wrongs done to us can bear. And this burden takes a toll on our health, as science is now proving.

Psychologists and neurologists have been researching forgiveness and have concluded that the act of forgiveness is health-promoting for the forgiver.

Using essential oils, such as Young Living’s Forgiveness blend, has a direct influence on the brain because the sense of smell is the only sense directly wired to the brain. Olfactory nerves transport the aroma of essential oils to the limbic system and the olfactory sensory center at the base of the brain. The impulses are passed next between the pituitary and pineal gland and move to the amygdala, which is the memory center or fear and trauma. Healing and forgiveness can then take place.

❤️ WHAT’S IN IT ❤️

  • GERANIUM– helps with hormonal balance, liver and kidney functions, and the discharge of toxins from the liver that keep us from having balance.

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.

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
