The Virgin Mary is said to have spread her blue cloak over a rosemary bush as she rested, and the white flowers turned blue. The shrub came to be known as the “Rose of Mary.”2

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.

Sacred Frankincense

Sacred Frankincense – Young Living

🎁 FUN FACTS 🎁

What’s the difference between Frankincense (Boswelia Carteri) and Sacred Frankincense (Boswelia Sacra)?

Boswelia Sacra is a smaller molecule, so it more easily passes into your sinuses, while Boswelia Carteri is a much heavier molecule

Sacred Frankincense™ essential oil comes from the distillation of the resin of the Boswellia Sacra frankincense tree. This oil originates in Oman and is the first Omani frankincense to be available to those outside of Saudi Royals or wealthy individuals. Gary Young spent many years traveling to Oman to work with Omani officials to obtain a permit to export Sacred Frankincense for Young Living and also received permission to build and operate a Young Living distillery in the country. The Sultan himself had a DECADES-long relationship with Gary Young, and his Frankincense is the ONLY Omani Frankincense exported in the world- exclusively for Young Living. If any other company claims their oil is from Oman it’s simply NOT TRUE!!

Frankincense farms are family-owned businesses for generations. They are VERY careful with these trees- it is their livelihood for thousands of years and they need the trees for future generations. The trees grow in rocks & sand, which makes very poor soil. Gary Young tried to grow them in the US and they would not grow!

Frankincense resin is acquired by thinly slicing the tree bark and allowing the resin to drip out. Then the resin must “cure” in a cave for 3-6 months until it dries and is ground into a powder (powder in Slique tea) Israel (partner farm) by Dead Sea also has Sacred Frankincense. This is the first time ever these trees have been domesticated in Israel.

But as you know, the Middle East is UNSTABLE! So be sure to stock up on FRANK because you never know when it might not be available!!!

🎁 WHAT IT DOES 🎁

Sacred Frankincense is ideal for those who wish to take their spiritual journey and meditation experiences to a higher level. It has been shown to reduce brain “noise” while enhancing calmness, allowing the brain to better use its own abilities for learning and decision making. This oils is also said to help with aging, skin, respiratory support, mental fatigue, mood elevation, healthy blood pressure, healthy inflammatory responses, stress relief, and soothing the nerves.

Constituents to research:

  • alpha-pinene
  • limonene
  • para-cymene
  • sabinene
  • camphene.

🎁 IDEAS FOR USE – Topical/ Aromatic 🎁

  • Diffuse this grounding, uplifting, and inspiring aroma around your home or office.
  • Add several drops to your homemade moisturizers and creams
  • Incorporate it into your beauty routine by applying it neat.
  • Apply it topically on temples, wrists, or base of neck to enhance meditation practices.
  • Apply topically to bites, scratches, or broken skin
  • Mix with carrier oil and rub over chest
