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.

Kunzea- Young Living

🍃 FUN FACTS 🍃

Kunzea bushes are found across Australia, and have been used for centuries by indigenous cultures for all kinds of medicinal purposes. It was only recently rediscovered because farmers and ranchers notices that wherever their barbed wire fences ran through a Kunzea bush, the wire did not rust. This is because kunzea has a high level of antioxidants! The Kunzea bush was also referred to as the Tick bush, because cowboys or campers sleeping under a Kunzea tree would not get ticks as ticks have an aversion to the properties in this plant.

The beautiful coasts of Australia and Tasmania boast a playful white and pink flower known as kunzea. Produced from the steam distillation of the leaves and green branchlets, Kunzea essential oil offers a spicy, woodsy aroma to uplift any environment. With properties that help soothe fatigued muscles and work to reduce the appearance of blemishes, Kunzea will be a new household staple. Use alongside Purification® to help purify the air or instead of Tea Tree for a more pleasant aroma and milder sensation when applied topically.

Thyme & Thyme Vitality

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.
