Patchouli

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.

Helichrysum

HELICHRYSUM graphic

Helichrysum- Young Living

🧡  FUN FACTS 🧡

Helichrysum is known as Immortelle, or the Everlasting Flower, possibly because of the way its essential oil can smooth the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone.  Its name,  “helichrysum” comes from Latin and Greek roots, meaning “gold spiral” due to its beautiful, golden blossoms. Historically,  it has been used for many different ailments for centuries, especially in Eastern, Western, and Southern African culture. Different tribes in Africa have used helichrysum mostly for countless medicinal purposes. Today, you can find this amazing, healing oil in some of Young Living’s most popular blends, such as Deep Relief, PanAway, M-Grain, Forgiveness…

Helichrysum is typically harvested wild from the rocky shores of Croatia’s Dalmatia region, but Young Living’s helichrysum is cultivated at our farm in Split, Croatia. By cultivating this rare plant, Young Living is helping to protect it from exploitation and over-harvesting. In using our Helichrysum essential oil, you’re helping support sustainable agriculture.

🧡 WHAT IT DOES🧡

An antioxidant, helichrysum is cleansing to the blood, helpful in detoxification, this oil supports the liver cells, gallbladder, lymph system and pancreas. But its benefits are not limited to these organs, helichrysum is incredible for the skin, the muscles and joints, tissue repair, encourages bruises to heal, supports the circulatory system, promotes good hearing, supports the lower back, and is a must-have oil for your first aid kit. Overall, it is amazing at helping the body (in any location) maintain a healthy inflammatory level. It is also a great pool to naturally protect the skin from the sun!

Emotionally, helichrysum is uplifting to the subconscious and helps people cut through the barrier of anger, allowing one to move towards forgiveness and ultimately emotional freedom. Helichrysum has a very high frequency, on the emotional/ spiritual level at 181 MHz

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.

Northern Lights Black Spruce

Northern Lights Black Spruce- Young Living

🌲 FUN FACTS 🌲

This amazingly GORGEOUS  and incredibly SUSTAINABLE oil is exclusive to Young Living, it comes from Ft Nelson, BC Canada. There, Black Spruce trees are considered weeds and the Canadian government wanted them removed, so YL  sustainably removes and distills them!!! YL helps people clear their land and instead plants aromatics- Einkorn, chamomile, yarrow & fleabane. The self- powered farm Northern Lights farm is completely off the grid; 253 acres run on propane and a water mill. This oil is unique because it is distilled from the entire tree, not just the branches and needles. This ensures that we capture its complete essence during the distillation process!

60% of the richest oil comes from the tops of trees, and this oil contains the same energy as the northern lights- The Lakota Indians often crossed the border to receive healing energy from these lights. The frequency of the Black Spruce oil is incredibly high du to the frequency of the Aurora Borealis

🌲 WHAT IT DOES 🌲

Spruce oil is used for many purposes from household cleaning to emotional balance to massage. It’s high frequency helps ground the body, creating the feeling of balance necessary to receive and to freely give. Spruce is said to open the pineal gland, invigorate the mind, promote comfort to the bones and joints, stimulate the thymus and adrenal glands. Overall, Spruce positively affects the nervous system, respiratory system, skin and emotions.

** Constituents to examine further: alpha- pinene, camphene, beta-pinene
