Carrot Seed & Carrot Seed Vitality

🥕 FUN FACTS 🥕

Surprisingly enough, carrots are part of the parsley family, but it’s not the garden vegetable variety that you’re thinking of. The essential oil is extracted from the dried seeds through steam distillation.  The seeds may be small, but they are packed with natural healing properties. Popularly called wild Queen Anne’s lace, its native origins can be traced back to Egypt, France and India.

Carrot seed oil has a thicker, more viscous consistency and a distinct woody, earthy and deliciously root-like fragrance.

🥕 WHAT IT DOES 🥕

Carrot Seed oil contains powerful antioxidants, which are amazingly beneficial to the body as they fight free radicals and help slow the degenerative process of aging.

Historically, carrots have been used as a blood cleanser and to support the liver, gallbladder and the skin as well as the heart, intestines and nervous system. And we all know carrots are good for the eyes.

Carrot seed also helps stimulate the lymph system (immunity) aids in soothing digestion and the excretory tract, supports abdominal comfort during the menstrual cycle, and generally promotes comfort to the abdominal region.

Applied topically to muscles and joints, carrot seed oil helps the body maintain healthy inflammatory levels, encouraging comfort on location. This oil works in beauty products to moisturize the skin, improve elasticity and liven up skin tone.

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.

Steam distilled from the outer parts of the cinnamon tree in places like India, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Cinnamon Bark Vitality is very high in the naturally occurring chemical constituent Trans-Cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde is a flavonoid and is what gives cinnamon its flavor and odor.

  • apply to insect bites to promote comfort
  • Massage a drop (with carrier oil) over the chest for a soothing effect

Oregano & Oregano Vitality- Young Living

🍃 FUN FACTS 🍃

Steam distilled from the leaves of the Oregano plant, a hardy perennial herb and member of the mint family. The ancient Greeks and Romans have a profound appreciation for oregano, using it for various medicinal purposes. In fact, its name comes from the Greek words “oros” and “ganos,” which are words for mountain and joy — oregano literally means “joy of the mountain.”

It was revered as a symbol of happiness, and it was an ancient tradition to crown brides and grooms with a laurel of oregano. Its most well known constituents are Thymol, Cavracol, Beta-caryophyllin (BCP), and rosemaric acid- a powerful antioxidant

🍃 WHAT IT DOES 🍃

*** ALWAYS DILUTE IN TOPICAL APPLICATIONS because it can cause skin irritation.

Oregano is highly recommended as an oil to add to your arsenal of natural healing tools, as it has a wide range of uses, but is most associated with respiratory and immune system health. It also positively benefits the muscles and bones. Oregano has been gaining popularity as a natural remedy, though its use as a health-boosting herb is centuries old. It contains high amounts of Omega-3s, Iron, Manganese, and antioxidants.  Oregano is a very flavorful herb that is often used in Italian, Greek and Spanish cooking. It is often used in seasoning blends, including Italian Seasoning, and pairs well with meats, tomato dishes, and eggs.

🍃 IDEAS FOR USE –  INTERNAL (with Vitality™ only) 🍃

• Place a drop under the tongue and hold it there for several seconds to boost the immune system

• Take it as a dietary supplement by adding a drop to a vegetarian capsule and taking daily or as needed.*

• Add a few drop to your soups or stews, especially during times of illness

• Substitute Oregano Vitality in any recipe calling for the dried Oregano herb

• Give meats and veggies a minty note by including Spearmint Vitality in your marinades.

• Apply (diluted) over muscles and joints for soothing relief

• Apply to foot bottoms, between the toes or toenails to encourage a healthy bacterial environment

• Apply on location to skin areas for smoothing warts or skin tags (use caution if the oil is too hot- dilute)

• Add several drops to your DIY outdoor spray

• Place a few drops on a cotton ball and place the cottontail to deter creepy-crawlies from entering your home

• Apply (diluted) to insect bites or to soothe skin

• Add a few drops to boiling water, and being careful not to get the steam in your eyes, gently inhale the oregano steam to promote healthy breathing

• Add a few drops to your favorite Shampoo to help the scalp stay moisturized. Be careful to avoid the eyes

• Soak hands or feet in a basin of warm water to encourage healthy skin and promote a healthy bacterial environment

Myrrh

 

MYRRH graphic

Myrrh – Young Living

🏺FUN FACTS🏺

Well over 2,000 years before the baby Jesus received Myrrh as a gift, it was one of the most desired and most expensive items in the world. In Greek mythology, Aphrodite forced the goddess Myrrha into an incestuous relationship with her father, Cinyras. Cinyras avenged the act by turning his daughter into a Myrrh tree. When the tree sprouted its blooms, their child Adonis was born. The resinous drops that exude from cuts in the trees bark were said to be Myrrha’s  healing tears. For this reason, the Greeks and Romans used Myrrh to dress their battle wounds.

Myrrh oil has a smoky, sweet or sometimes bitter smell. The word myrrh comes from the Arabic word “murr” meaning bitter. The oil is a yellowish, orange color with a viscous consistency. Chinese have used Myrrh in their medicine from ancient times through modern.

Historically, Myrrh was an integral part of religious ceremonies, embalming, and as a medical cure for all kinds of ancient (and modern day) diseases. Myrrh is also a beloved oil of perfumers as it extends the fragrance of other aromatics. There is good reason that Myrrh was offered as a gift to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords at the first Christmas

🏺WHAT IT DOES 🏺

Two primary active compounds are found in myrrh, called terpenoids and sesquiterpenes, both of which have powerful health effects, which promotes  healthy inflammatory response and fill the body with life-giving anti-oxidants. Sesquiterpenes specifically have an effect on our emotional center in the hypothalamus, helping us remain calm and balanced. Both of these compounds are under investigation for their health benefits, as well as other potential therapeutic uses.

Myrrh can help maintain healthy skin by soothing chapped or cracked patches. It is commonly added to skin care products to help with moisturizing and also for fragrance. Ancient Egyptians used it to prevent aging and maintain healthy skin. Myrrh is commonly used in aromatherapy for massages. It can also be added to a warm bath or applied directly to the skin

🏺 IDEAS FOR USE – TOPICAL/ AROMATIC 🏺

  • Mix with other essential oils to create your own unique scent
  • diffuse for fragrance
  • Mix with lotion or carrier oil and apply to the skin for moisturizing, soothing and healing
  • Use Myrrh to make DIY natural skincare products- its the ancient oils of beauty
  • Apply topically to cuts, scrapes, abrasions
